  • Personalizing Apparel and Promotional Items For Your Business with EmbroidMe

    West Palm Beach, FL – May 17, 2012 – There is a common misconception that personalizing large quantities of apparel and promotional items is cost prohibitive.  In reality, EmbroidMe can handle the task of individually personalizing items of almost any quantity, such as embroidered polo shirts for a golf team, engraved awards for an awards banquet or imprinted portfolios for the entire company, without breaking the bank.

    Personalizing items with a name or initials, phrase or achievement, even a date or title adds a special touch, creating a more memorable gift.  Employers are able to recognize employee performance or anniversary dates with a personalized business card case, table clock or award.  Several hundred people can receive the same customized promotional product with each one being individually personalized.  Attendees of corporate meetings are ideal candidates for personalized writing instruments or briefcases. Corporations celebrating a milestone with its employees might consider an artistic glass sculpture to mark the occasion.

    Companies benefit from a consistent visual brand message when employees wear logoed and personalized embroidered shirts for off-site meetings and trade shows, as well as camaraderie and allegiance among employees wearing the same shirts on site.  Consumer-driven businesses utilize personalized custom apparel as a uniform, identifying themselves and employees by name to customers.

    Many marketing departments already use customized promotional products  for sales and promotional efforts. Imagine the impact that those same items would have if they were personalized for the prospective client. Valued customers will know they are appreciated when they receive a personalized thank you gift, like a treat jar, appreciation plaque or a custom-labeled bottle of wine.

    “EmbroidMe has the knowledge and experience to help you find the right products and apparel to customize.  Personalizing those items takes things up a notch to create a lasting impression,” said an Embroidme Representative.  “Businesses can count on us to fulfill their personalization needs.”

  • Customized Promotional Products from EmbroidMe will Make Your Corporate Event Memorable

    West Palm Beach, Fl – May 10, 2012 –Your event can be more memorable with customized promotional products from EmbroidMe. Professional and novice party planners alike can create memorable events with custom details. It doesn’t matter if it’s a company milestone or anniversary observance, annual meeting or training seminar, corporate picnic or golf outing, EmbroidMe can help. 

    A great event starts with a creative invitation, and it doesn’t have to be confined to a letter-sized envelope or be an internal email or memo.  Consider using bottles of bubbles or bubbly with printed labels as the invitation to an annual awards banquet or client appreciation dinner. 

    Why use ordinary, generic party supplies when you can have them personalized for the event?  Customized promotional items, such as drinkware, coasters, plates and napkins will stand out with a logo or branding message on them. Items like flags, signs or window clings not only serve the practical function of identifying or directing attendees to your event, they are also decorative. Corporate logos on table decorations or party favors, like custom-imprinted centerpieces or candy, will make a memorable impression.

    Depending on the nature or theme of the event, certain customized promotional items can be used and appreciated immediately.  Training seminars are more efficient with pad covers and pens. What company picnic could do without folding chairs or caps?  Take-home gifts are appropriate for many events, and EmbroidMe has thousands of ideas for both the gift and the packaging.  From conferences to sponsored charity events, the professionals at EmbroidMe are prepared to help you add that extra touch to make any event unique and memorable.

    “Event staff or company attendees will stand out if they are wearing embroidered apparel,” said an Embroidme Representative. “Staff will present a uniform look with matching shirts, and a corporate fundraiser team creates impact if everyone’s shirt identifies the company and supports the cause.”

  • Golf Accessories Are Par for the Course with EmbroidMe

    Golf Accessories Are Par for the Course with EmbroidMeWest Palm Beach, FL – April 19, 2012 – EmbroidMe has the customized golf accessories and golf clothes you’re looking for. Being able to combine a promotional opportunity with a pastime favored by clients is like hitting the elusive hole-in-one. Golf, for some people, is all about the win. For others, it’s the challenge of self-improvement, and for many more, it’s just the opportunity to be outside and simply participate in a sport they enjoy.  Whether you are a course champion or weekend enthusiast, a game of golf is also a time to build or maintain relationships, business and personal.  

    Golf accessories can become useful giveaways that fit almost any budget.  Game necessities like balls and tees are available in several packaged designs, like a match book, nylon pouch or reusable zippered organizers, each with a different configuration of balls, tees, markers, club brushes, divot repair tools or spike wrenches.  Refining the item selection provides an opportunity for multiple or repeated messages with imprinting options on each item in the assortment.  Additionally, most brands and varieties of golf balls are available by the box and send an impressive, memorable message when imprinted with a logo.  

    Looking good on the course is easy with embroidered or imprinted apparel.  Golf clothes like polos and T-shirts are practical yet valued giveaways. Additional options include caps and visors or outerwear like zippered jackets or pullover windshirts. 

    “Golf tournaments are terrific opportunities to build your brand with customized promotional products,” said an Embroidme Representative.  “Organizers look for customized golf shirts for staff and teams, and participants appreciate event-supplied golf accessories such as club towels or pouches for valuables, but everyday items like water bottles and beverage can insulators are all popular items.  Post-event gatherings are ideal opportunities for awards and trophies, as well as prizes like golf umbrellas, shoe bags or coolers.”

  • Customized Promotional Products by EmbroidMe Are Ideal Trade Show Giveaways

    Customized Promotional Products by EmbroidMe Are Ideal Trade Show GiveawaysWest Palm Beach, Fl – April 12, 2012 – You can have the most eye-catching trade show booth and use the latest technology to convey your message, but without a giveaway item, show attendees’ interest level in stopping at your booth may diminish. Customized promotional products make ideal trade show giveaways, which not only lure attendees to your booth, but more importantly, they provide a reminder of the visit to your booth.

    Although targeted, trade show attendees fall into three distinct groups: those that just aren’t your customer, those who are potential customers and those who will be customers.  Spend your marketing dollars wisely on customized promotional products  suited to the viability of your potential customer.  Inexpensive items with your logo complete the attendees’ experience where they can say, “I visited XYZ Company’s booth.”  Industry related items, like foam construction cones or a syringe-shaped highlighter, and home or office items, like pizza cutters or letter openers, are economically-priced crowd pleasers.  
    Higher-value items show your prospects you value them at this initial stage of the buying process. Premium customized promotional products like coolers, umbrellas or multi-purpose tools are useful, appreciated and memorable giveaways.  Another strategy is having an item selection tailored to fit customer interest levels – a tote bag versus a duffel bag for a more interested prospect, a ruler versus a tape measure, or a stadium cup versus a stainless steel travel mug. 

    When budgeting and ordering your giveaways, consider larger quantities that will cover your entire tradeshow season and a reserve supply, instead of smaller, per-show quantities. Pricing will be more cost-effective.  Keep in mind that some show attendees represent an entire department or team and would appreciate something to take back to all of their co-workers unable to attend. “Research shows 83% of customers remember the business who gave them a customized promotional product .  That kind of brand recall is hard to find anywhere else,” said an Embroidme Representative.

  • Going Green for Your Customized Promotional Products and Apparel is Easy with EmbroidMe

    Going Green for Your Customized Promotional Products and Apparel is Easy with EmbroidMeWest Palm Beach, FL – April 5, 2012 – There are countless ways to be eco-friendly, from recycling and composting to using less water and electricity, and many businesses have adopted “green” initiatives to help reduce landfill waste and conserve energy. Environmentally-conscious companies can look to EmbroidMe for eco-friendly customized promotional products and apparel. Certain items in EmbroidMe’s wide selection are labeled as green by the manufacturer, enabling companies to advance their green campaigns into more areas of operation.

    The upcoming anniversary of Earth Day is an ideal backdrop to initiate an eco-friendly statement that reminds employees and customers of the importance of protecting and preserving the environment, and encouraging the use of products made from recycled or sustainable products. Daily use items, like pens made of post-consumer recycled paper with plastic derived from corn or pad covers made of recycled PET (PolyEthylene Terephtalate) and note pads made from recycled paper can be integrated without substantial effort. Golf balls made of 100% recycled tire rubber, LED flashlights with rechargeable batteries or calendars made of recycled paper are useful customized promotional products.

    Consumers appreciate items such as reusable grocery shopping totes, biodegradable bags for picking up after the dog and items from renewable resources, like bamboo cutting boards or drink coasters. Logoed items are a constant reminder of your company and support of the cause.

    Eco-friendly customized apparel can span the range from work attire to everyday casual wear. Businesses requiring staff uniforms can support the initiative internally or use other types of apparel as giveaways. A green message can be displayed on the apparel along with the company logo. Eco-friendly shirts can be made of organic cotton, partially recycled cotton, post-consumer PET and recycled polyester. Customization will support the theme when items are embroidered with cotton thread or imprinted with vegetable-based inks.

    “Whether you are distributing individual items or sending large case quantities, your packaging should be eco-friendly, as well. Corrugated shipping cartons are reusable and recyclable,” said an Embroidme Representative. “Our experienced staff and Eco Awareness Programs stand ready to assist you.”

  • Get Qualified Leads with Personalized URLs and Customized Promotional Products by EmbroidMe

    Get Qualified Leads with Personalized URLs and Customized Promotional Products by EmbroidMe
    West Palm Beach, FL – March 22, 2012 – Prospecting using personalized URLs (PURLs) and customized promotional products in conjunction with a direct marketing campaign is a sure way to get qualified leads. Sending personalized sales materials to potential customers not only gets their attention, it gives them an easy way to reach you.
    Let’s say you’re a developer looking to sell units in your housing project. You mail customized sales letters addressed to the recipients containing detailed information about their current property. You offer them a complimentary market valuation of their home, an introduction to your new project, a customized promotional item as an enticement to take the next step and a PURL for them to get more information online and easily be able to contact you.
    Potential customers follow the PURL (developer@new_project.com/customer_name) to the customized website, where they are greeted by name. Information fields on the page are automatically populated, enabling them to send you a message or simply request that you contact them. This landing page provides additional information about you, your offer, the development and the opportunity to choose the customized promotional product they want you to bring to the appointment they request.
    The mailing list and property information can be researched or purchased. The form letters and PURLs can be produced in house or outsourced. “The customized promotional products can be sourced from EmbroidMe,” said an Embroidme Representative. “We are prepared to assist you in finding just the right item, from flashlights and tool sets to table clocks and wine openers.”
    This concept is adaptable to most any industry. The personalized website or landing page can be designed as a request for a demonstration, samples, discount offer or estimate. Additionally it can be used to RSVP to events, open houses and seminars, or allow customers to make a purchase without leaving the page.
