E-Catalog: 2011 Spring Collection

Well the weather sure isn't cooperating with us here in the Northeast, but it IS officially Spring and, snow on the ground or not, it is time to start thinking about Spring sports, Racing season, and maybe freshening up our work wardrobe a bit.  Well, even it's a while before we can get into short sleeves, we can fantasize a bit with this e-catalog and get our orders placed now.  Check out some more of our latest styles here ... and then do your anti-snow dances.

Thing that's making us smile this week

So it's nearly April and it's 19 degrees outside here in Littleton, NH.  The skies are cloudy and there are occasional flurries.   *Sigh*  We really need a smile right about now.  Luckily, we heard that on this date, back in 1959, "Some Like it Hot" premiered!  Now if something is going to bring a smile to your face, it's this film.  And hey, we really would like it "hot" right about now.

Brand your Business: You know, for kids!

I went to a trade show recently.  It was a kid-oriented event held at a school with both a massive cafeteria and gymnasium packed with vendors.  Lots of the tables were set up with crafting stations and snacks, and many of the vendors had little promotional items to giveaway to the kids and their parents.  It was a very successful, fun day but I couldn't help but notice the somewhat less-successful vendor and their tables.  Truly when you're at a show with lots of competition, it's not so much what you have to say as much as it is how much fun you put into your booth.  Do you have attractive, colorful displays?  Is it staffed by engaging people?  Are you offering something fun for the customers to do or to take away with them?  Even with all the crafts and games and fun activities, two of the busiest booths at this show were the Tobacco-free booth (which gave away imprinted balloons) and the Insurance booth (which gave complimentary fingerprinting/ identification documentation of the kids -for the parents- as well as punch-balls - for the kids).   These vendors were just swarmed with people and activity and each of them got to engage in conversations and get their message to lots and lots of people, and the people were thrilled to hear it because they got a little something out of it too.

Brand your Business: Earth-Friendly Promotional Mug

People are becoming more conscious about the products they’re buying and how these products are made.  That’s why we’re proud to offer apparel, accessories and promotional items crafted from sustainable resources.  From sport shirts to fleece hat to plastic pens and mugs, these eco-friendly, socially responsible products respect the planet and other people. We love the idea of corn and wheat being manufactured into handy plastic objects.  It's a great way to not only promote your business (or outfit your staff) but also lessen your "footprint." Win, win!

OK, at this point all the fuss about the Super Moon, or the backlash about how "Super" it wasn't, is about as played out as Charlie's "Tiger Blood."  But, when we came across this photo online, we had to admit it was pretty darn cool!

E-Catalog: 2011 Spring and Summer Collection

Is there anything like that first taste of Daylight Savings time to get you thirsting for green grass,  flip flops and Summer afternoons?  Now that we can all get home from work without having to turn on our car headlights, it's definitely time to stop thinking about fleece and start turning our attention to Spring and Summer styles.  Almost as if reading our minds, this catalog of some of our most popular styles just landed in our inbox this week.  We thought we should share it with you folks.  You're welcome, now pass that watermelon!

Brand your Business: Collapsible Flower Vases

One of the things we love so much about the promotional products business is that they are always coming up with such new and fun things for you to brand your business with.  For instance, we love these cool vinyl flower vases.  When not in use, they are completely flat making them easily ship-able, give-able and store-able but just add water as the saying goes and you suddenly have a very sturdy vase.  We think this is such an awesome idea for restaurants and inns to have on their tables, but also a great promotion for flower shops, and even a great idea for weddings.  Truly, when is comes to imprintable items, the only limitation is your own imagination.

What we've been working on this week

"I Scream!  You Scream!  We all  Scream for Ice Cream!"  In the frozen, snowy wilds of northern New Hampshire, it seems a long time before we'll hear the dulcet tones of children hollering this refrain, but the meteorologists, groundhogs and calendars all assure us that Spring is just around the corner.  We may be a little harder to convince after dealing with the fallout of Monday's Mega-storm, and that was why it was so nice to have these awesome tees to work on this week.  We love our friends at Udderly Delicious and especially love their fun logo. Every Spring a large order of tees is placed and they are all gobbled up by Udderly's devoted fans by mid-Summer.  (Aaaah, mid-Summer....) Doing this four-color screen printing job on a rainbow assortment of tees was like Spring coming right into our work shop!

Thing that's making us smile this week

Have you checked out yet?  It's such a fantastic conglomeration of interesting and fun sites, games, and video clips that can really turn your brain to mush if you let it?  Why wait for things to go viral when you can discover the most fascinating things ahead of the crowd by surfing this site?  This week, we "stumbled upon" this cool site where you can design your own snowflakes and even view them in 2-D or 3-D motion.  After the 2+ feet of snow we received earlier this week you'd think we would have had enough, but this is just too much fun.  Besides, there's no need to shovel this kind of snow! Have a great week everyone!

Thing that's making us smile this week

Not only do we offer custom embroidery and screen printing as a business, but we also truly enjoy doing it!  At our hearts, we are crafty people who knit, quilt, and design in our private lives.  That's why when we stumbled upon this link while we were tweeting with customers this week, it just filled us with glee.  How absolutely sweet and adorable these fairy houses are!  Just seeing all the different styles and materials is so inspiring it is making us extra eager for winter to melt away so we can get out and make our own with our kids and grandkids!
