Embroidered Custom Hats for Pied Piper

Custom HatsThese embroidered custom hats for our client, The Pied Piper, turned out great.  The Pied Piper asked us to create a set of custom merchandise for their pest and lawn services.  These items included the usual promotional items such as custom hats and shirts with their logo, and also a few unusual items–stickers and signs for rodent traps!

We were able to find sources to print custom signs and stickers that the company used to label and number their various pest-control devices.  We had to find a sturdy sticker that was also able to be written on for numbering.  We used the company’s cute and colorful rat logo to make all of the items from hats to traps have a consistent look.

Artwork can look different on different mediums, so we were careful to make sure that the embroidery and printing were consistent with the digital artwork of the logo.  This involved careful matching of colors, selection of hats with the correct color, and detailed communication with the embroiderer to ensure quality.

The client was happy with their hats, shirts, signs and stickers.  We can help you with any of your custom product needs–whether it is simply custom hats with your logo, or something more unusual, we can help you with every aspect from making sure the artwork is suitable for printing, to selecting products, to  making sure the finished product is the perfect way to promote your brand.  Browse our promotional products website or call us today.

 

Pet-Themed Promotional Products

Pet-themed promotional products are a great way to market your business, even if your business has nothing to do with pets.  Pet parents spend 60 billion dollars annually on their fur babies (or feather babies, or scale babies). People love their animals and appreciate pet-themed promotional products from all types of companies.

Hand out dog bandanas with your logo on them at any outdoor event.  Imagine all of those adorable animals happily running around showing off your brand.  Sponsor a booth at a walk or pet-adoption festival and hand out pet-themed promotional products that will be useful to pet owners such as bag dispensers, safety lights for pet collars, food bag clips, etc.  The pet owner will see your logo every time he or she uses the product.

Pet events and pet-themed promotional products are also a great way to give back to the community.  Donate custom t-shirts with your logo on the back, and a cute message or dog artwork on the front to a favorite rescue group to give away or sell for a donation.

As a proud mom to two precious pugs, I know that I love it when any company or organization helps animals in general or is kind to my babies.  Paying attention to pets is a great way to increase awareness and positive feelings about your business or organization.

Summer Event Marketing Ideas

Summer is almost here and that means it is time to plan event marketing for all of the summer festivals, concerts, walks, and other outdoor events.  Whether your company or organization has a booth at an event, is sponsoring a festival, or handing out goodie bags at a walk, make sure you give participants useful products to give them a positive feeling about your brand.

The Ultimate Summer Event Marketing Swag Bag

Bags, pens, and t-shirts are the most popular promotional items used for event marketing.  While t-shirts are great to give out before a walk or event, the best item to give away at an event is a bag.  The participants will use the bag to hold any other items given to them by other groups, and they will use the bag at future events, while shopping, or while traveling–creating lots of opportunities for your brand to be seen.  A reusable tote is an inexpensive, yet highly visible, way to get your brand noticed.  To make your brand stand out, make sure to fill it with more unique and useful items such as sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses, or a stylish water bottle.

Event Marketing Promotional Tote BagFill it with Immediately Useful Products

At an outdoor event, people need sun protection and hydration.  Include a pair of sunglasses, a lip balm with an SPF, and sunscreen.  Here is a kit that includes sunscreen, aloe, lip balm, and bandages in a custom-printed case.

Suncare Kit for Summer Event MarketingAn umbrella is a great idea for an outdoor event marketing bag.  It can be used in a case of unexpected rain, or to keep participants in the shade on a sunny day.  It will also get a lot of use beyond that particular event.

Summer Event Marketing UmbrellaFinally, add a water bottle to the bag.  People love getting items that they will actually use, so choose a stylish bottle that he or she would love to take to work or to the gym.  It will not only give them a positive view of your company, but it will also show your brand off to gym buddies and coworkers!

Custom Shirts with Your Logo from Local Tulsa Company

Custom shirts are the most popular form of promotional products.  58% of people on the United States own at least one promotional shirt.  T-shirts are especially effective in the midwest, with 95% of people remember the name of a company who gave them a custom shirt.

Custom shirts are loved by all age groups.  It is easy to target to a specific market because there are so many styles of custom shirts available.  Promotional t-shirts do not have to be the boxy, plain white t-shirt with a logo on it.  Your logo can be printed, embroidered, created from rhinestones, appliqued, or any combination of decoration styles to create a unique look.  Your logo can be applied to t-shirts, dressy button up shirts, polo shirts, form-fitting ladies’ shirts, tank-tops, jerseys, and more.  Choose a shirt that fits the current style of your target audience to create a lasting impression!

Custom shirts by age group

Why give shirts to your target audience?  Research shows that consumers have a more favorable view of a company and are more likely to remember it when they are given a promotional product such as a t-shirt.  Promotional shirts are a cost-effective form of advertising that costs less per impression than traditional forms of advertising.

Here are some of our favorite shirts that we can help you customize to suit the style and needs of your target audience.

We love these tri-blend pieced crew neck shirts.  They are a stylish alternative to the basic t-shirt, while still maintaining the same level comfort and universal appeal.  They are available in styles for men and women and in a variety of color combinations.

Earth-Friendly Office Supplies

Earth Day is coming up!  Celebrate Earth Day every day with earth-friendly office supplies.

Earth Day was founded on April 22, 1970.  Today, Earth Day efforts focus on all aspects of the environment from providing cleaner air, to saving endangered species, to protecting rain forests.  You can help protect our planet in small ways, like taking your own cloth bags to the grocery store, recycling your trash, and purchasing recycled products.  Your business or organization can help by using recycled and recyclable office and breakroom products.

Earth-Friendly Office Supplies

We do have several recycled and recyclable products available at SunDANCE.   It may not seem like a big deal, but recycling has many benefits beyond saving trees. According to the University of Southern Indiana, “each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution!”

SunDANCE Cares: Emergency Infant Services

Emergency Infant Services began in 1977 to provide immediate emergency assistance to children.  While other services existed for long-term assistance to children and families, Emergency Infant Services made it possible for families to get immediate help.

SunDANCE Cares Emergency Infant Services

The average family seeking assistance from Emergency Infant Services does so an average of two times.  No appointment is required and there is no waiting period, which makes this a great solution for families who just need a little help in an emergency situation.  Emergency Infant Services can provide formula, diapers, food, clothing, medicine and other basic human needs of infants and children under five years of age.

There is, unfortunately, a great need for this organization in the Tulsa area.  One in five of Tulsa’s children go to bed hungry, and a third of families with children in diapers have difficulty affording them.

Why Tulsa needs Emergency Infant Services

Emergency Infant Services is a non-profit organization that relies on donations.  92 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to client services.  You can help them by donating money, time, or items such as formula, diapers, baby wipes, etc.  Visit their website to donate or to learn what items are needed the most.  This organization helps more than 1,400 children each month.

SunDANCE has chosen to help Emergency Infant Services this month as a part of our SunDANCE Cares program.  We are donating 1% of all orders place on March 28, 2016 to this Tulsa organization.  Help us help our community by placing an order or by donating directly to EIS!

The mission of Emergency Infant Services is to meet the basic human needs of infants and children, five and under, whose families are in crisis or emergency situations.  Our priority is to assure that infants and young children do not suffer during difficult times when their parents are unable to provide infant formula, milk or food.

 

Pak-it Revolutionary Cleaning Products

Pak-it cleaners Pak it

Pak-it products are cleaning pods in over 30  formulas for janitorial, housekeeping, breakroom and facilities maintenance.  They are the same concept as dishwasher or laundry detergent pods, and just as easy to use.

The pods are color-coded and there is no need to measure anything or cut them open.  You simply fill a spray bottle (or bucket depending on the product) with water, drop in the pod, and it dissolves within 2 minutes.

The pods are a great choice for businesses that want to save money, reduce waste, and conserve storage space.  Instead of purchasing individual bottles of cleaners that take up a lot of spaced in the janitorial closet, simply purchase a pack of small pods to use only when needed.  No special training is needed to use the pods.  They are color-coded to match the proper bottle.  There is no worry about measuring, spilling, or coming into contact with the chemicals because the pods do not need to be opened.

pak-it-graphic pak it

Pak-it products are all made in the USA by Big 3 Packaging located in Philadelphia.  They create less waste than traditional cleaning products because the spray bottle is designed to be refilled and reused, and the packets dissolve completely, so there is nothing to throw away.

The packaging makes the system easy to use.  The pods are color-coded to match the bottles.  The text on the bottle is in Spanish and English.  Pak-it has created an easy, efficient, less expensive, and less wasteful way to clean!

Pak-its are available in formulas for just about any cleaning need.  These include glass cleaner, floor cleaner, multi-purpose cleaner, car wash, boat and deck wash, deodorizer, carpet cleaner, disinfectant, window cleaner, laundry detergent, and many more.
