Bar & Restaurant Promo Items

Bars and Restaurants have a tough job creating brand loyalty.  The industry lends itself to a host of variables from food quality to staffing and of course what is trending in the marketplace.  We have helped create this brand loyalty by offering enhancements to the guest experience.  Whether its fun sunglasses for the summer concert, professional polos for the wait staff or any number of the branded items below that I snapped photos of that are currently on sale. The old standbys of can and beer koozies are always a good buy but there are many more options to choose from!

New Golf Tournament Giveaways

Each year reveals new giveaways for golf tournaments.  Many companies host these as a fundraiser or a client thank you.  They are a great way to network and if you have a unique giveaway your name is sure to be in front of your potential clients for years to come. Even an old standby like a golf towel can have new life breathed into it by using a new technique to decorate it.  How about a woven towel or an all over color dye sublimated towel?  Both of these are available and a show stopper!  I snapped some photos of some great options for giveaways below!

Purchases with a Purpose

I once heard a sermon where the pastor said if you want to know where a persons heart and passion lie, look to where they spend their money.  Needless to say that has stuck with me.  As a faith based business we are always looking for ways not just to help people grow their business but to help them have better lives.  At the beginning of this year we added a new custom gift line to our offering called Trades of Hope.  This organization is unique in the marketplace as each purchase helps an impoverished woman somewhere in this world.  We have been talking about this organization on our facebook page since January 1 but today I was sent a Thank You video from Katie Davis who wrote the book Kisses from Katie.  I had the pleasure of reading this story of this young woman’s remarkable journey into Uganda and the hearts of the people there.  Hers is one of the many missions that Trades of Hope buys from at a fair trade rate, normally six times what the woman would receive if they tried to sell their craft locally.  Katie’s story touched my heart, I hope it touches yours!  Her missions product can be purchased direct from our Trades of Hope Compassion Gift Link on our website

Spring Tradeshow Display

2014-02-05 10.27.07

It was my pleasure to work with Twin City Theater on their Spring Trade Show Booth.  As he is local we were able to visit the showroom of my factory and touch and feel all of the displays that were available. In the end this display, the 10 foot Echo suited his needs the best:

Kit Includes:
(1)Frame
(21)Channel Bars
(1)Hardware Bag
(4)Mural Center Panels
(2)Fabric End Panels
(1)Graphic Case-to-Counter Kit
(1)Display Hard Case w/Wheels
As you can see from the photo we ended up with wrapping his graphic around the end panels.  He saw a proof of what the finished product would be and when done we went in together and had a one on one lesson on the nuances of setting up the display so that it will last for years to come.  The beauty of this product is he can change the graphics at any time to suit his business needs without investing in the hardware again.

Dog Tags

The history of the dog tag is an interesting one.

During the American Civil War of 1861–1865, some soldiers pinned paper noteswith their name and home address to the backs of their coats. Other soldiers stenciled identification on their knapsacks or scratched it in the soft lead backing of the army belt buckle.

Manufacturers of identification badges recognized a market and began advertising in periodicals. Their pins were usually shaped to suggest a branch of service and engraved with the soldier’s name and unit. Machine-stamped tags were also made of brass or lead with a hole and usually had (on one side) an eagle or shield and such phrases as “War for the Union” or “Liberty, Union, and Equality”. The other side had the soldier’s name and unit and sometimes a list of battles in which he had participated.

Since then dog tags have become standard military issue and in some arenas a fashion statement.  They are a sure fire fun way to promote an event!

Challenge or Collectible Coins

Challenge Coins are an American tradition that date back to World War I. The coins originated within the Military as a symbol of the organization that made it become easily recognizable if they were asked to present their coins. The very first unit in the US Military known to have a coin was the oldest Special Forces Unit in the US Army. The coins were and continue to be given out by Military Generals and Commanders as well as all of the other branches of the armed forces such as Army, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and the Navy.

The “challenge” comes from making sure that each member of the unit is carrying their coin. The challenger will challenge everyone to slam their coins down on the table and the last one to do so has to buy a round of drinks. However, if everyone produces the coins, the challenger is the one who has to buy the round.
Today, it is not uncommon for Police and Fire departments to distribute challenge coins to increase morale or build spirit within their ranks and departments.

These coins can also be used as collectible or commemorative coins.  AA uses coins to designate and celebrate your years of sobriety.  Pricing is based on overall design and quantity along with materials chosen and remember they do not have to be round.  Shield shaped or state shaped are an option!
