  • Children’s Apparel from EmbroidMe Meets Safety Standards

    Children’s Apparel from EmbroidMe Meets Safety Standards

    West Palm Beach, FL – October 11, 2012 - Among the many things that parents must be aware of is the safety of children’s clothing. EmbroidMe understands the importance of child safety and is committed to offering products that meet the manufacturer standards set by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC serves as a watchdog for manufacturers, and it frequently orders recalls for possible hazards with children’s clothing and toys; however, it is still important for parents to be proactive in this area.

    The most common issues in product safety in children’s apparel are sleepwear flammability, drawstrings, and choking hazards. The guidelines for flammability are very specific; and in fact, the garments must be tight fitting and “self-extinguish” when exposed to an open flame, such as a candle or match. EmbroidMe offers only flame-resistant children’s pajamas that meet CPSC standards. Small children instinctively put things in their mouths so detachable snaps, buttons, zipper heads, bows, and rhinestones are all possible choking hazards. It is important that parents proactively check all children’s garments for possible hazards.

    Among the many child-friendly options at EmbroidMe are t-shirts, baby bibs, bottles, sippy cups, pajamas, hats and sunglasses, all of which can be customized with a logo or advertising message. These items make great promotional gifts for pediatricians, daycare centers, schools, and camps to provide to their young clientele, and are fully customizable.

    EmbroidMe is especially committed to providing the affordable and safe merchandise of the highest quality to its customers. “Parents want to know that their children are safe, whether it be at home, at school, or at play,” said an Embroidme Representative. “EmbroidMe offers only merchandise that meets the safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

    About EmbroidMe

    With hundreds of Resource Centers around the world, EmbroidMe is the most comprehensive source for promotional apparel, premiums, and advertising specialties, providing its promotional partners with full-service custom embroidery and screen printing for apparel.

  • Think Pink and Fight Breast Cancer! Promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Custom Items

    pink marathoners NOW IS THE TIME FOR BUSINESSES TO PREPARE A PROMOTIONAL CAUSE MARKETING CAMPAIGN TO ALIGN WITH BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH IN OCTOBER

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to promote awareness of and education about the disease that will affect 1-in-8 U.S. women and 1-in-1,000 U.S. men during the course of their lives.

    Breast cancer is a pervasive and deadly disease. Breast cancer is a commonly-diagnosed cancer in U.S. women, second only to skin cancer. And breast cancer death rates for U.S. women are higher than for any other cancer besides lung cancer. Yet when breast cancer is detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98%.

    Breast Cancer Awareness Month shines a spotlight on this devastating disease and the importance of having a plan in place to detect the disease in its early stages. The pink ribbon is a dual symbol of the disease and the power of early detection and intervention to prevent the spread of the disease.

    There are many ways, large and small, for businesses to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the time to prepare a promotional cause marketing campaign for October is now. Businesses can:

    • Fund local charity walks that funnel dollars to breast cancer research
    • Sponsor fundraising events that provide mammograms for women in need
    • Sponsor breast health education workshops
    • Promote public service announcements that remind about the importance of breast self-exams, mammograms, and clinical breast exams
    • On a smaller scale, businesses can simply raise awareness about the disease and the importance of early detection by developing custom products emblazoned with their logo, along with the pink ribbon, and passing them out to staff and clients.

    An Embroidme Representative says, “Whatever role a business decides to play in promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, EmbroidMe offers businesses the ability to customize products that show support for women’s health in general and breast health in particular.”

    Whether businesses are in need of branded clothing, branded office supplies, corporate apparel, or other promotional products such as mugs, keychains, and wristbands, EmbroidMe has hundreds of Resource Centers around the world to help your business develop the perfect promotional products to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. EmbroidMe’s on-site specialists are ready to provide you with first-class service and products of the highest quality. Just click EmbroidMe Locations to find the Resource Center nearest you, or call (877) 877-0234 to speak to a trained design professional.

  • Expand Your Brand at Fundraising and Sponsorship Events with Promotional Products from EmbroidMe

    West Palm Beach, FL - September 20, 2012 - The use of promotional products in fundraising and sponsorship efforts dates back to the American Revolution, when buttons were distributed to George Washington’s supporters during his 1789 campaign.  Even in today’s 2012 political campaigns, candidates are distributing buttons and many other items at fundraising events, a testimony to the value of promotional products in raising money and awareness.  EmbroidMe offers a variety of customizable products that promote brands, schools, charities and even political candidates.

    Fundraising campaign planners often incorporate promotional products into their budgets because of their ability to promote brands through repetitive exposure.  The key to high brand recall is repetition, so it is wise to select quality items that have durability, as opposed to disposable items.  For example, high-quality t-shirts from EmbroidMe can be worn beyond the end of a specific event, increasing the longevity of the printed message.
     
    It’s no secret that people enjoy receiving gifts, and the promise of receiving a free gift serves as a motivator for many people.  According to the “Advertising Specialties Impressions Study” in 2008, 62% of people have made a purchase or donation after receiving promotional merchandise.  EmbroidMe offers an extensive variety of promotional products that serve as ideal gifts for your fundraising event.  The professionals at EmbroidMe will work within your budget to help you select and design the perfect gift item.

    “When choosing promotional products for a fundraiser or sponsorship event, it is essential to consider your audience,” said an Embroidme Representative.  “Most people appreciate receiving a t-shirt, but if you are hosting a charity golf tournament, consider upgrading to a golf shirt, which we can customize for your event.”
