Brand your Business: Fun in the Sun

The Summer is such a great time to go the extra mile to promote your business.  With so many people vacationing, kids out of school, and extra daylight hours to fill up with activities, it's a perfect season to hold a tent or sidewalk sale, sponsor a sports team, or host another outdoor event of some sort.  You can use standard promotional items as giveaways, like magnets and pens, or you could go for something a little more fun  - like these "flying discs." Fun promos are a great way to attract prospective customers.  Everyone needs a pen, but everyone wants something fun! For more ideas to spice up your next event, check out our online catalog or contact us and we'll help you come up with the perfect promotion for your organization!

Brand Your Business: Sun Screen

Promotional Products can have a whole host of uses.  They can be used as giveaways for customers to spread awareness of your business, they can be used as an add-on to increase value of a service your company provides, and they can be used for resale, as a way to offer private labeled merchandise to your customers. This Sunscreen can certainly be used in all those ways!  It would make a great giveaway for golf courses or landscapers,  it could be built into the cost of admission to a private beach or a hotel Summer getaway package, or it could be resold by a host of Summer businesses and event organizers.  Best of all, it's a product people need and appreciate, so you're really providing a wonderful service for your customers.

What we've been working on this week: Crusaders!

Though we started Embroidery by Everything Personal in Manchester, NH some 17 years ago (and still make weekly trips down South to our loyal customers) for the past 10 years, we've been located in Littleton, NH.  Our owners grew up in Vermont's beautiful Northeast Kingdom and wanted to settle somewhere close by.  Littleton proved to be the perfect place, providing a centralized location and a positive atmosphere to expand and see the business prosper.  We love being active in the community and are a big supporter of our local schools and teams.  This week, we got to embroider our local Littleton Crusader on a student's duffle bag.  We always love to stitch the Crusader, so jaunty on his horse.  It fills us with town pride.  Let us embroider some school spirit for you!  Contact us today to discuss embroidering your school mascot on the item of your choice!

Thing that's making us smile this week

We love crafty people!  We chat with a lot of them on Twitter and recently came across this hysterical picture of a knit Panda-to-Gnome conversion factory posted by Mochimochi Land on Flickr. Everything she posts is adorable , but this one really made us smile.

Thing that's making us smile this week

We love it when we get a chance to hear from our customers after they pick up their items!  This week, we received the nicest letter from a regular customer who tried out a brand new Port Authority sport shirt we had suggested:

Brand your Business: Reusable Cloth Shopping Bags

It's always fun to think about the unusual and special promotional items you can incorporate into your special events and promotions, but you should never forget to incorporate your logo and branding into as many of your businesses everyday items as possible.  It's almost unthinkable to operate a business without a website or business card these days, so to should you think it as important to have pens, notepads, and bags with your brand on them.  The more your customer is surrounded by your company image, the more professional your company appears and the more comfortable your customer is to do business with you.  These days, with more and more eco-conscious consumers, reusable cloth shopping bags are a hot commodity.  Whether you're giving them away with purchase, or stocking them for sale, cloth bags are a must have for your business.  Find more ways to brand your business by perusing our online catalog here.

What we've been working on this week: Give us a Smooch!

It's Summer and we're so excited that a new Smoothie shop is due to open right around the corner from us! What's more exciting, it's being opened by the owners of the fabulous Chang Thai cafe.  This new ice cream and Smoothie shop is "Smooch" and we can't think of a cuter name!  In addition to their adorable name, they also have a bright, fun, playful logo. When they approached us to outfit their crew with aprons and caps in time for their opening today, we were thrilled to help!  The caps embroidered beautifully, but because of the large background to their logo, we decided to appliqué the logo on the aprons.  To appliqué the  logo, we simply embroidered the text onto a piece of tackle twill and then stitched the tackle twill to the apron. This way you get a bright, clean finish - and dramatically cut down your stitch count.  We couldn't be happier with the way both the hats and aprons turned out - and we can't wait to be first in line to try one of what are sure to be Smooch's amazing smoothies!
