Can Koozies-Advertising that gets Around!

2014-06-18 13.02.23

One of my favorite promotional products has to be can koozies! They are graphic, affordable and most of all people love them! Here in Minnesota it is boating/camping/cabin season and you can never have enough koozies to keep your favorite beverage cold! They come in a regular size can, taller monster style size and of course zippered bottle holders.

This particular koozie also has a great feature, printing on the bottom. Summer special includes one set up for all three locations and your choice of koozie color and imprint color!

Think outside the box and advertise your message at the lake or cabin today!

Buttons oh Buttons!

Buttons are a great way to share a message.  The first photographic image on pins or buttons dates to 1860. Abraham Lincoln and his various opponents used the tintype or ferrotype photo process.

The first mass production of metal buttons dates to the 1896 William McKinley campaign for president with “celluloid” buttons with one side of a metal disk covered with paper (printed with the message) and protected by a layer of clear plastic.

Since 1916, buttons have also been produced by lithographing the image directly onto the metal disk.  A celluloid-type button is fastened to a garment using a pin on the back side of the button (in recently-produced buttons, the pin generally fits into a safety-pin-style catch). A lithographed button may fasten with a pinback or with a metal tab which folds over a lapel or pocket.

One of the most famous uses of campaign buttons occurred during the 1940 U.S. presidential election, when Wendell Willkie‘s campaign produced millions of lithographed slogan buttons in rapid response to news items about President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Now that we have a history of buttons, let’s look at what options we have for today!

Our custom buttons are an inexpensive and effective advertising tool. We offer nine different sizes and styles ideal for any campaign, even or function!

Buttons come in various shapes and sizes.  The company I use is located in the USA (Made in the USA) and does not charge a set up fee which makes these one of the few items in the industry to do so.

If you are thinking that a pin back is the only way to go, think again. Buttons now come with mirrors on the backside (great for ladies), magnetized for fridges and even have a bottle opener on the back!  Some other unique options are zipper pulls and key tags.

And if you think round is the only shape, think again!  Square, rectangular, oval are all available!  With prices starting at just .21, these are an affordable way to help get your name out there!

Sail Sign Banners

These sail signs are a great way to get your business noticed.  Whether inside or out, they are an eye catcher!  Rental communities, real estate open houses, retail locations, restaurant events are but a few of the uses I can think of for them. Which shape do you like the best?

Vendor Spotlight-Apparel Decoration

Oftentimes I am asked when meeting a client for the first time, what makes me different. While that is a loaded question here is the short answer on the apparel front.  Because I started in the business actually decorating garments (I still do some) I understand what looks good and what works.  We have all seen a decorated garment when it doesn’t look good and my goal is to always provide the best garment for the best price.  To that end I am pleased to partner with my wholesale decorator who also happens to be a local business, Shop Local!

What makes my partner different is they completely research the technology and invest in the right equipment and then train their staff properly to turn out some of the hottest garments in the industry!  A great example of their commitment to this is the digital printing technology.  As a small business I can buy basically a table top version to do this.  Their version however is bigger than my car and puts out a near perfect print every time.  There really is no comparison between the two in quality and life expectancy.

Here is some of the work:659_tn_gallery 205_tn_gallery 271_tn_gallery 398_tn_gallery 576_tn_gallery 600_tn_gallery 631_tn_gallery 652_tn_gallery

From standard screenprinting to laser etching or dye sublimation, this partner makes it easy for me to fulfill every need.
