  • QR Codes Create a Buzz on Customized Promotional Products From EmbroidMe

    WEST PALM BEACH, FL, Nov 03, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Been noticing those funny looking square bar codes popping up everywhere? They are called QR (quick response) codes, and they have opened up a whole new realm of marketing possibilities. It's time to get ahead of the game and apply QR embellishments to customized promotional products

    A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be scanned by a smartphone camera and transfers information. Based on the type of code it is, it might direct the viewer to a website, make a phone call, deliver a vCard or more. Imagine the conversation and fun clients can have discovering what a company's code has to offer.

    To date, QR codes have been spotted on direct mail pieces, movie posters, business cards and in Times Square. EmbroidMe's catalog of customized promotional products offers an incredible variety of products that a code can be applied to, enabling a company to take full advantage of QR codes to market to consumers in a fun and interactive way.

    Shirts, mugs, keychains, bags, nearly the entire line of customized promotional products from EmbroidMe can be given new life with a simple QR code, that will enable companies to engage clients by the nature of the QR code's detail, all while promoting the brand. Imagine a brand's QR code on t-shirts (or parka, in Maine) for a custom promotion. Or, making a bigger impression by printing up large numbers of t-shirts have people wear them to a public event like a ballgame, street fair or campaign stop. For more impact, put different messages on the shirts, so that people will take more scans of more of the codes that can also be turned into a "retweet" so that customers can share in the promotion on Twitter.

    "As more people embrace new technology, fun and innovative ways to incorporate it will be adopted quickly. Companies can leverage this to their advantage by providing the right customized promotional products, at the right time," said Christine Marion, director of retail operations for EmbroidMe.

  • EMBROIDME RECOGNIZED IN FRANCHISE TIMES ‘NEXT 100’ RANKING

    World’s Largest Embroidery Franchise Recognized Among All Top Franchise Systems Worldwide

    West Palm Beach, FL (October 24, 2011) – EmbroidMe, the world’s largest embroidery franchise, announced today that it has been named an “up and coming” company on the verge of making the Franchise Times magazine’s Top 200 list of franchise companies. The Franchise Times ‘Top 200’ is comprised of all top franchise systems ranked by worldwide sales for the year of 2010. Each year the magazine also recognizes the next 100 companies on the verge of making the Top 200 list. EmbroidMe moved up on the list from 289 to 280. The full report appears in the magazine’s October issue.

    “We are thrilled to receive this recognition and to find out that we have moved up 9 spots on the list,” said Mark Johnson, President of EmbroidMe. “Over the past several years we have experienced extraordinary growth and to be recognized as number 280 out of nearly 3,000 franchise systems is a true testament of our hard work and commitment to the clients we serve.”
