  • Benefits to Business-Casual Office Apparel

    professionalsMany companies especially tech-based companies such as Google and Facebook are embracing more casual dress at work. Where does your company stand on business-casual attire? Should your staff be allowed to dress more casually at work, or is formal business attire linked to better performance in the workplace? This post details some research that has been conducted on the effects that workplace attire has on companies. Research has shown that the formality of ones dress at work does not affect worker productivity, so dont worry that employees dressing down in casual or business-casual wear will make them less effective or efficient at their jobs. Other research points to direct benefits of a more casual dress code at work. In one study, for example, managers and executives dressing more casually led to more open communication between them and their employees and also an increase in morale. Another study found that executives who traded their typical formal business attire for business-casual clothing became more approachable to staff members because employees found the executives less intimidating and the executives themselves felt more comfortable. Finally, there is a strong preference for business-casual wear among Millennials. Thus, affording your employees the opportunity to dress more casually while still dressing professionally may help your business attract a younger demographic to your workforce. EmbroidMe offers a variety of business-casual products for those companies that want to offer their employees branded business-casual clothing to wear at work. Logos can be added to:

    • Polo shirts
    • Button-down oxfords
    • Dress shirts
    • Short and long-sleeved t-shirts
    • Fleece jackets

    EmbroidMe has local Resource Centers all across the country. Contact one today to design and order business-casual apparel for your employees and see firsthand the benefits that business-casual wear can bring.

  • Businesses Support American Diabetes Month with Custom Items from EmbroidMe


    November is American Diabetes Month, an annual campaign to promote awareness of and education about the disease that affects nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. Diabetes is a pervasive and pernicious disease that causes more deaths a year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Complications from diabetes include increased risk of stroke and heart disease, kidney failure, nervous system disease, and nontraumatic lower-limb amputations. In addition to the nearly 30 million diagnosed cases of diabetes in the U.S., an estimated 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. In its most recent study the American Diabetes Association estimated the total cost of diagnosed diabetes in 2012 was $245 billion.

    American Diabetes Month shines a spotlight on this devastating disease and on the importance of both calculating one's personal risk for developing Type 2 diabetes, and on how making simple lifestyle changes - such as losing weight or quitting smoking - can reduce the risk of developing the disease.

    There are many ways for businesses to participate in American Diabetes Month, and the time to prepare a promotional cause marketing campaign for November is now. Businesses can:

    • Fund local charity walks that support diabetes research
    • Join or start a national team in The Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes National Team Program, a team-building program sponsored by the American Diabetes Association that engages employees and their families to stay healthy and make a difference in their communities
    • Sponsor annual diabetes awareness programs that explain the connection between diet, exercise and developing Type 2 diabetes
    • Promote public service announcements that remind about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle in preventing and combating diabetes

    On a smaller scale, businesses can simply raise awareness about the disease by developing custom products emblazoned with their logo and messages about diabetes and passing them out to employees and clients.

    Businesses interested in mounting an American Diabetes Month promotional marketing campaign must design and order their products now to be ready for November.

    Ideas for custom products to pass out to employees and clients or at charity walks and health education workshops are plentiful. They include promotional diabetic recipe calendars and cookbooks, food and fitness journals, and fitness products such as pedometers, fitness belt pouches and duffel bags. All promotional products can be imprinted with business logos and messages about diabetes. All such products - and many more - are available from one of the hundreds of EmbroidMe Resource Centers around the world.

    Christine Marion, Director of Retail Operations for EmbroidMe, says: "Whatever role a business decides to play in promoting American Diabetes Month, EmbroidMe offers businesses the ability to customize products that will convey the message that a business cares about those affected by diabetes. Businesses should place their orders now to make sure they are ready for the American Diabetes Month campaign in November."

  • Stand Out in The Sand with Promotional Beach Towels

There is no better way to get your business seen than by customizing those flat and portable billboards. Beach towels can reflect the users personality with shape, color and pattern. Creating customized beach towels that reflect your business in a positive light can say a lot and have a useful life of 10 to 20 years. A practical product hugely imprinted and built for years of use? Sounds like a prescription for a long, healthy promotion.

  • Which Summer Promotional Items to Pack in your Picnic Basket

    Cool Promotional Products For Winter TradeshowsFrom over-the-top feasts to simple pick-ups, picnics are the perfect way to celebrate summer. The National Park Service welcomes 275 million visitors each year, many of them spending the day hiking and picnicking. From over-the-top feasts to simple pick-ups, picnics are the perfect way to celebrate summer. Make sure your message makes an appearance at these outdoor summertime meals. Stay trendy and extend your marketing campaign outdoors with customized promotional items you can pack for your picnic. While bringing food is a given, there are also other supplies that will make your picnic more comfortable and more fun. Before you go on your next picnic, make sure you have each of the supplies listed below so that you can enjoy your picnic to its fullest extent. Blanket Unless you want insects getting the first serving of your sandwich, blankets are the foundation (literally) to a picnic. Ranging in color, size, pattern and texture, a personalized blanket will make a summer statement for your business with a long, useful life. Picnic Basket There is no picnic without the picnic basket. Although a square wicker basket is the traditional go-to solution, practicality is in; so keep your food and drinks cool with a personalized portable cooler. The tailgate tote cooler helps keep your food fresh, and drinks cool so you can experience that aha moment when sipping your sparkling water. Hand Sanitizer Germs are everywhere. No one wants to have post-BBQ sticky fingers or greasy digits from the salty chips you just munched on. As much as we would love to snack the entire time, we all know that eating is not the only activity we engage in. Whether you are holding the hand of your significant other, or throwing that Frisbee across the field, hygiene is vital for your best performance. Free your fingers by packing customized hand sanitizer. Koozie or Drink Holder Your beautiful picnic just turned into a subliminal marketing strategy for your company as the people sip from their sodas in a decked out Koozie. Dress your beverage with a personalized wine holder, beer blanket or sweet iced tea drink holder that promotes your business in a practical way. Keep hydrated and stay cool with a customized Koozie. Sunscreen With the summer sun kicking in full swing, there is no better time to have your business support the rising importance of skin protection. A picnic without protection can potentially be a disaster. You can show others you care by lending them some customized sunscreen to prevent the day after burns.
