Featured Item: 5.11 Tactical Performance Polo

We are pleased to announce that we now have access to the full line of 5.11 Tactical apparel.  Whether you are outfitting a Police Department, Fire Station, Security Detail, or another profession, you'll love the durability and quality of 5.11.  Their Performance Polo Shirt, available in short and long sleeve versions,  is a new concept in neat, clean and professional.  Made of 100% polyester, this performance polo shirt has a slight sheen and stays looking good day in and day out.  They’ve included all the features of their cotton Tactical Polo including mic clips, fully gusseted sleeves and pen pockets on the left sleeve.  The Performance Polo shirt fabric is moisture wicking to constantly wick moisture away from your body.  The fabric dries fast to keep you comfortable and the shirt is antimicrobial which prevents the growth of odor causing bacteria. Because the Performance Polo Shirt does not wrinkle, shrink or fade, it is an exceptional value.  Most performance polo shirts on the market can be worn only a few times before losing their professional look.  5.11's proprietary SmartWeave™ fabric keeps its slight sheen even after multiple washings and the fabric won’t snag or peel, giving it a long life.  The 5.11 Performance Polo Shirt outlasts other polo shirts by such a great factor and is so reasonably priced; it just makes sense to wear the best.  Contact us today for more information on this and other 5.11 apparel.

Brand Your Business: How do you measure up?

As discussed previously, sometimes the best promotional products aren't even the ones which directly tie into the type of service you offer, but are the ones most likely to be used by the customers you give them to.  How do you make such a choice?  Well, take a look around your house and see which promos you've been given over the years which you have hung onto.  Rulers, magnets, pens, and calendars are definitely tried and true options. One of my favorite giveaways is always a measuring tape. You always need them, and yet who wants to carry around the giant, heavy metal one from the tool box?  Imprint the front with your business logo and contact information, and you have a business card that is going to be looked at and handled time and time again, keeping your business in front of its customers for years to come.  For this and other promotional product ideas, contact us today.

Brand Your Business: Fly Your Flag

In this "every sale matters" economy you have to explore any option you can to attract new customers.  Truth is, you can do all the social marketing, emailing and advertising you like, but if you're a brick and mortar store, there's no greater investment than your visibility.  Sometimes it's a sign, lighting, a sandwich board or a flag that grabs the attention of passers by... Sometimes it's all of the above.  Drawing people to your business is crucial to staying afloat.  Promotional products to the rescue!  We love these custom printed large lawn-flags.  They are attention-getting while still being attractive - and are completely customizable to deliver just the visual message you need to draw the eye of your potential customers.  For more ways promotional items can help you grow your business, check out our online catalog or contact us today.

Embroidery By Everything Personal Donates Over $500 to ASPNC

Embroidery By Everything Personal of Littleton completed their first “Partner of the Month” fundraiser with Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC).  The month long fundraiser was part of an on-going venture between the business and local non-profits where 10% of its profits for the month are donated to a local non-profit.  "We have always been big supporters of our community," commented owner Pat Beck.  "We appreciate having an opportunity to give back."

ASPNC was the first non-profit selected for the “Partner of the Month” program.  Headquartered in Franconia, the organization provides year-round opportunities in sports and recreation for persons with physical or developmental disabilities.  Currently it serves over 120 athletes from Northern Grafton, Carroll and Coos counties in New Hampshire, and Eastern Caledonia and Essex in Vermont. Participants are also welcome from other areas as well.  Their most recent event, Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington, successfully involved over 100 volunteers taking four disabled participants to the summit of the mountain by pushing and pulling them in adaptive equipment specially designed for such a purpose.

Embroidery By Everything Personal owners, Pat and Andrew Beck, were thrilled to be able to donate a check for over $500 to ASPNC.  Sandy Olney, Executive Director of ASPNC accepted the donation stating, "Without the support of local business such as theirs, our operations would not be possible."

Located at 42 Cottage Street in Littleton, Embroidery By Everything Personal is open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm, and Saturdays 10am-2pm through the holidays. For more information on ASPNC visit their website at

Embroidery By Everything Personal Names Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country as "PARTNER OF THE MONTH"

Adaptive Sports Partners of the North CountryEmbroidery By Everything Personal has named Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC) as our first "Partner of the Month."  The month long fundraiser will be part of an on-going venture  where 10% of  profits for the month will be donated to a different local non-profit.  "We have always been big supporters of our community," commented owner Pat Beck.  "Coming up with the idea was an easy one," she added. "It is our chance to give back."

For our first partnership, we decided to start with ASPNC.  Headquartered in Franconia, the organization provides year-round opportunities in sports and recreation for persons with physical or developmental disabilities.  Currently it serves over 120 athletes from Northern Grafton, Carroll and Coos counties in New Hampshire, and Eastern Caledonia and Essex in Vermont. Participants are also welcome from other areas as well.  Their most recent event, Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington, successfully involved over 100 volunteers taking four disabled participants to the summit of the mountain by pushing and pulling them in adaptive equipment specially designed for such a purpose.

Sandy Olney, Executive Director of ASPNC is excited about the month-long partnership with Embroidery By Everything Personal.   "Without the support of local business such as theirs, our operations would not be possible."

Brand Your Business With Gratitude

Yes, it may only be October 3, but it is time once again to begin thinking about the holidays.  Maybe you're thinking of giving your employees jackets with your logo embroidered on them?  Maybe you want to screen print a bunch of fun tees for a holiday party? We can help!   But don't forget that in addition to everything else a company should be dealing with at the end of the year, one of the most important things to consider is how to thank your best customers. Especially in these difficult economic times, expressing your gratitude is crucial to maintaining long, happy relationships with your customers. Fortunately, promotional products can be your answer to expressing your gratitude while at the same time, reinforcing your branding.  Take these gourmet assortment tins: they include 5 gourmet chocolate chip cookies, 4 oz. honey roasted peanuts, 4 oz. gourmet cranberry nut mix, 3 pieces of white chocolate mid-size pretzels, 3 pieces of milk chocolate peanut clusters and 2 pieces of Swiss chocolate truffles.  Who wouldn't love you for giving them one of these tins?  Plus, you can emblazon the tins with your company logo, contact information, and message of thanks.  For more ideas of how to use promotionals to enhance your customer relations, contact us today.

Thing That's Making Us Smile: God Bless You, Tina Fey

Who doesn't love Tina Fey?  She's smart, she's funny and she's (seemingly) as delightfully flawed as the rest of us.   This week we happened upon this prayer she wrote for her daughter and just had to share it:

First, Lord: No tattoos. May neither Chinese symbol for truth nor Winnie-the-Pooh holding the FSU logo stain her tender haunches. May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the Beauty. 
When the Crystal Meth is offered, may she remember the parents who cut her grapes in half And stick with Beer.Guide her, protect her when crossing the street, stepping onto boats, swimming in the ocean, swimming in pools, walking near pools, standing on the subway platform, crossing 86th Street, stepping off of boats, using mall restrooms, getting on and off escalators, driving on country roads while arguing, leaning on large windows, walking in parking lots, riding Ferris wheels, roller-coasters, log flumes, or anything called “Hell Drop,” “Tower of Torture,” or “The Death Spiral Rock ‘N Zero G Roll featuring Aerosmith,” and standing on any kind of balcony ever, anywhere, at any age.
Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance. Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes And not have to wear high heels. What would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I’m asking You, because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit.
May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers.
Grant her a Rough Patch from twelve to seventeen.Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long, For childhood is short – a Tiger Flower blooming Magenta for one day – And adulthood is long and dry-humping in cars will wait.
O Lord, break the Internet forever, that she may be spared the misspelled invective of her peers And the online marketing campaign for Rape Hostel V: Girls Just Wanna Get Stabbed. And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister, Give me the strength, Lord, to yank her directly into a cab in front of her friends, For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it.
And should she choose to be a Mother one day, be my eyes, Lord, that I may see her, lying on a blanket on the floor at 4:50 A.M., all-at-once exhausted, bored, and in love with the little creature whose poop is leaking up its back. “My mother did this for me once,”she will realize as she cleans feces off her baby’s neck. “My mother did this for me.” And the delayed gratitude will wash over her as it does each generation and she will make a Mental Note to call me. And she will forget. But I’ll know, because I peeped it with Your God eyes.

Brand Your Business: Top choices for Promotional Products

If you're in business, you simply can not underestimate the value of self-promotion.  But with so many options out there, which items are the most effective to spend your hard earned marketing dollars on? Good question!  Not all promotional items work for all businesses, and some specialty items which can work wonders for certain industries can be downright useless to other industries.  In our experience, here are the best items to invest in for  any  business

Without a doubt, the most popular promotional item is apparel.  T-shirts, jackets and hats are the best way to gain brand visibility. Be they screen printed or embroidered, according to a recent survey, made to order promotional apparels account for 1/3rd of all promotional merchandise

Next on the list would be stationery products like pens and notepads. This is the quickest, most inexpensive way to gain brand visibility. Promotional writing instruments are perfect for carrying out promotions: relatively inexpensive and extremely functional

Unusual as they may seem, bags for brand promotions come in at number three on our list. Promotional bags can provide amazing brand visibility! You can easily give them away at trade shows and conferences as well as major corporate events. You can also print customized shopping bags for your retail establishment, letting each customer who walks out of your business do some promoting for you! 
Of course, you can't forget about promotional calendars. Calendars are a perfect addition to your annual promotional efforts. You can distribute them among your employees as well as customers and gain year-round visibility for your message. 

Lastly, Promotional magnets are one of the most inexpensive ways to promote your growing business. These magnets are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and everyone seems to love to get them! 

While these ideas work for just about any business out there, they do not have to be "generic" - any promotional product can be customized with unique designs, photos and text to make it truly unique to your own business.  To increase your visibility - and your sales - contact us and find out how promotional products can help you!
