August in Review

30 Aug

We’ve been very busy this month! We’ve printed thousands of shirts, produced several banners and signs, created two webstores for local high schools, reconnected with old customers and met new ones as well.

In the past week, we’ve been doing a lot of sports related shirts for high school teams, as well as company sports teams like the three above. Two are for Newark’s Cross Country team and the third is for a IES’s sports team.

We have also put a couple webstores, including one being used as a fundraiser by the Glasgow High School Athletics Department. It features a variety of products including those pictured below. Click the image to explore the website.  A percentage from every item sold will go directly to the Glasgow Athletics Department.

My favorite item is the cozy dragon stadium blanket. It’s available in both red and gold versions.

Earlier this month, we handled many orders for family reunions. Several longtime customers came in to place their annual family reunion t-shirt orders including the 2013 Wilson family reunion shirts.  Their 2012 family reunion shirt was featured on our webpage for some time.

In addition to catching up with our old customers, we also go to know new ones. We a nice order of shirts in black and white for Victor of Santo Stucco, and a couple of great family reunion transfer orders.

Gearing up for Back to School

24 Jul

I was in a store yesterday buying a birthday card and they already had the Halloween decorations out.  It is way too soon for that in my opinion.  Sometimes you do have to think ahead though.  Now, with 5-6 weeks to go until school starts is a good time to start to think about great products for campus store and school fundraisers.  I used to love the little PTA store my elementary school had in the mornings, and it was a great fundraiser for the school.  Below is a selection of items sure to be student favorites.  They’ll also work great as PTA gifts to students and teachers.

pencils

 

The Basics:  Every school needs school pencils.  These are perfect for elementary schools. We also have neon and mechanical pencils, and don’t forget about pens and rulers too.  Consider this fun spring pen as a PTA gift or honor roll award.

 

pen-highlighter

 

A Little Fancier: Make studying a breeze with this pen and highlighter combination item.

 

drawstring backpack

 

Show Your Pride.  A drawstring backpack is ideal for carting around (and keeping together) gym clothes, going on field trips, and many other activities.  Don’t forget about getting t-shirts & hoodies too! Use our design tool to see how your school’s logo will look on different items.

 

planner/agenda

 

Keep Everything Straight when Life Gets Busy.  Everyone knows the pace of things picks up in the fall.  Keep all your dates and assignments straight with a daily planner.

 

rubber bookmark

 

For Reading.  A no-slip bookmark, which doubles as a jar opener, would be a great, inexpensive PTA gift.

 

 

football key chain

 

Team Spirit: I have a feeling I’ll be posting this fan-favorite item again.  This foam football key chain can be imprinted with your school’s logo and makes a great fundraiser item.

 

stress relief

 

For the teachers.  This apple shaped stress-relief magnet would be a great teacher gift or fundraiser product.  There is also a nice pencil stress relief shape, as well as a school bus version.

 

 

iphone megaphone

 

Tech savvy.  This last item is definitely for the older set, but is sure to be a college favorite.  The iPhone megaphone is a silicone product that amplifies the volume of your iPhone 3 or 4 2-3 times without requiring any power.  See it in action here.

 

 

>>Don’t forget the staples like t-shirts, tote bags, and water bottles, which you can always find on our website.  I’ve put together a Pinterest board full of my choice items for back to school.  There’s also a page on our web store that is a dedicated selection of items ideal for campus stores and school fundraisers.
