Father’s Day Treats and Ideas

Father’s Day is around the corner and we wanted to share some inspiring ideas that can be personalized to make this day special.

DIY:

1. Personalized Mug
Grab a ceramic mug and a sharpie, both can be any colour of your choosing, and personalize it with doodles and sayings! Perhaps something your dad always says, a moustache or a tie, or the classic ‘#1 Dad in the World’. bake in the oven, and voila you have a very special, one of a kind mug, that is sure to put a smile on your dad’s face.

2. Brunch
Make a brunch for dad, because everyone knows that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Who doesn’t love to wake up to some fresh orange juice, eggs (any style), and bacon. Check out the recipe below for an awesome combination of waffles, eggs, bacon and maple syrup;

Custom Made:

1. Calendar
Whether your dad is in the pictures, or they are only of you and your siblings, a calendar is a great way to show your dad how much he means to you, all year round. A funny idea would be to reenact some classic childhood photos, and have them printed side by side next to the originals.

2. T-shirt
Create your own design for a personalized T-shirt, a funny saying, or a great picture, for example. Surely a custom t-shirt will be cherished for years to come, and proudly worn whenever the occasion arises.

So get creative, and make something truly special for your dad this year! Any combination of the above ideas will be a wonderful gesture. We are still planning our Father’s Day so please reach out and tell us of any unique ideas you have! We would love to hear from you :)

For any more information on how you can make this Father’s Day special, please contact us.

Have a great week!

Canine Lovers Rejoice – Woofstock is Happening this Weekend!

The same way Victoria Day long weekend marks the beginning of summer for us, Woofstock is the canine equivalent. Thousands of dogs, of all shapes and sizes, gather by St. Lawrence Market area, and celebrate the arrival of nice weather and longer walks. We know our office doggies, Gordie and Dexter, are super excited, and the best part is that they don’t even know what’s coming!

For the many wonderful exhibitors and sponsors we wanted to share some awesome promotional products that are sure to turn this year’s event into a memorable one.

1. Doggie Bandana
A great way to display your logo, on a wearable fashion piece. Bandanas can be screen printed on, based on the design of your choosing. A wonderful giveaway that is sure to make both dogs, and owners happy.

2. Reusable Bags
If you are selling and/or giving away items, make sure to provide the customer with a branded reusable bag. A great canvas to put your logo on, a reusable bag is sure to be used again in the future, and remind the customer of your brand.

3. Waste Bag Dispenser
A unique item that is sure to be used over and over again. A thoughtful giveaway that any dog owner will appreciate, waste bag dispensers come in a variety of colours and can have any logo printed on them.

Whether you are preparing for the upcoming festivities, or looking into ideas for the next upcoming festival and/or event, we can help you plan the best custom product assortment. Contact us for a quote and to find out about other products.

Enjoy Woofstock this upcoming weekend, and stay hydrated!

June is Safety Awareness Month

Spring is almost over, and all of a sudden we find ourselves immersed in everything summer. Sunscreen is on sale everywhere, the ice-cream truck drives by on a much more regular basis, and the days are getting longer.

With June being just around the corner, comes ‘Safety Awareness Month’. It is meant as a time to educate yourself and those around you about important safety tips. To help you prepare for a successful safety awareness month, we wanted to share some of the top promotional products out there.

1. Safety Vest
the very familiar neon coloured vest with reflective stripes all over it. Imagine your Company’s logo printed in reflective paint on the vest – day or night it will not be missed!

2. First-Aid Kit
A comprehensible kit filled with all the important basic items; bandaids, gauze, and many other useful things! Ranging in size from travelling to personal, all kits are a perfect canvas to have your company’s logo printed on them.

3. Flash
An item that will always come in handy, whether you keep one in your home, office or car. Have your logo printed on the flashlight, to showcase your company’s commitment to your employees’ safety.

These are only a few of the many promotional products available to make your safety month meaningful. Contact us for any more ideas, and we will be happy to help you come up with the best product assortment for you.

have a happy and safe summer!!

Springing Forward into Fundraising Season

Spring is finally here, and with it come exciting fundraising events. Community and corporate BBq’s, picnics, bike-a-thons and run/walk-a-thons are all great opportunities to fundraise.

Finding sponsorship and participants can be a challenge, but with the right promotional product company providing you with quality solutions, it can be a breeze – and that’s where we come in.

First, look at putting together registration kits with information on the cause, as well as a cause branded item as a ‘Thank You’ gift. In addition, provide items like awareness bands or buttons, for participants and volunteers to give to people willing to ‘donate’ to the cause.

Third, be sure to identify your volunteers – whether it’s a brightly coloured T-shirt, vest, or hat; it is important that they ‘stand out’ in the crowd to answer questions and direct people. A wearable item should be made available to all the participants, as a commemorative item, as well as a way to identify with the group during the event.

And don’t forget to offer your sponsors the chance to include their logo on some of the promotional items, especially
the participants’ T-shirts.

The right promotional products can help elevate an event, and make it a memorable experience for all involved.
