  • Businesses Spotlight Men's Health in Movember


    November has been rebranded Movember by the Movember Foundation, a global organization committed to "changing the face of men's health." The Movember Foundation asks men to grow moustaches (Mo's) during Movember to initiate conversations about and raise funds for men's health programs, with a focus on prostate and testicular cancer. Beginning back in 2003 in Australia, the Movember movement has spread to 21 countries and has raised $559 million to date.

    Men known as Mo Bros shave their faces on Movember 1st and grow a moustache for the month. They grow and groom their new Mos, asking friends, family and corporate sponsors to donate to their efforts. Mo Bros use their new Mos as talking points to discuss men's health and gain sponsorship. Money raised by Mo Bros goes to the Movember Foundation to support men's health programs.

    Businesses can support employees and clients participating in Movember by offering them Movember-related promotional products from EmbroidMe. The time to design and order Movember promotional products to be ready by November - or Movember - is now.

    Businesses can:

    • Sponsor their employees and clients participating in Movember (Mo Bros) by providing a financial donation
    • Sponsor Mo Bros by handing out branded Movember promotional products that they can use and wear to generate support for their Movember fundraising efforts.

    Companies sponsoring Mo Bros in their support of men's health can work with an EmbroidMe Resource Center to develop customized moustache products emblazoned with their logo or company name. For example, a business can design t-shirts with its logo, the image of a moustache, and a "Made in Movember" tagline. EmbroidMe also offers moustache pins, moustache silicone or slap bracelets and moustache keychain/bottle openers. Businesses can make it easy for Mo Bros to keep their moustaches trimmed and stylish by handing out branded electric shavers.

  • Businesses Support America Recycles Day with Custom Recycled Items from EmbroidMe


    November 15th is America Recycles Day, a national initiative of Keep America Beautiful, the nation's leading nonprofit organization that promotes building and sustaining vibrant communities. America Recycles Day is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and use recycled products.

    Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away and subsequently turning them into new products. There are many benefits to recycling and using recycled products, such as reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills, conserving natural resources, saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that recycling and composting efforts in 2013 saved 1.1 quadrillion BTU of energy, the equivalent of energy consumed by over 10 million U.S. households in a year.

    There are many ways for businesses to participate in America Recycles Day, and the time to prepare recycled promotional products to be ready for November 15th is now.

    Businesses can:

    • Organize or sponsor an event that promotes education about recycling - educating would-be recyclers about what items are recyclable in their communities, and when, where and how to recycle different items
    • Host an in-office challenge that offers a prize to the individual or department that recycles the most materials between now and America Recycles Day
    • Organize or sponsor a recycling collection event that encourages local residents to bring in recyclable items such as mobile devices, electronics, batteries or ink cartridges

    Companies engaged in these events can further the recycling cause by working with an EmbroidMe Resource Center to develop custom products emblazoned with their logo and made from recyclable materials, and passing them out to attendees. For more information about hosting or attending an America Recycles Day event visit

    Businesses interested in mounting an America Recycles Day promotional marketing campaign must design and order their products now to be ready by November 15th.

    EmbroidMe features many items made from recycled materials to pass out to attendees of America Recycles Day events. They include pens, koozies, eco tote bags, appointment calendars and pocket sliders that feature hints for recycling. Places of business that promote an in-office challenge to recycle can reward the most prolific recyclers with paperweights made from recycled materials. All recycled promotional products can be imprinted with business logos. All such products - and many more - are available from one of the hundreds of EmbroidMe Resource Centers around the world.

    An Embroidme Representative says: "Brands participating in America Recycles Day will be seen as caring corporate citizens. Whatever role a business or organization decides to play in this nationally-recognized day, EmbroidMe offers the ability to customize products that will convey the message that your brand cares about promoting a sustainable future."

  • 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.

    An Embroidme Representative 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."
