Rally Your Team With A Tailgating Event

Could your workplace morale use a boost? Does it seem like there’s a lack of energy on the job? With Football in full swing, there’s never been a better reason or season to get your employees’ heads in the game!

Try organizing a corporate tailgating event. Not only will this fun activity boost employee morale, but it will also act as a catalyst for your employees to interact together as a group. They work hard, so once in a while, it’s great to get your staff out of the office for a company-wide celebration.

Get to the game early and set up your tailgating gear in the parking lot. Incorporate custom tailgating items imprinted with your company’s logo to give everyone a sense of pride and belonging. Items like custom foam fingers are great for game day. Their light weight makes them neither cumbersome nor inconvenient to carry around like other promos may be, and when your home team gets that pigskin in the end zone, it’s the perfect item to wave wildly in the air!

Of course there will be employees who aren’t huge sports fans, but that’s ok! Members of your staff who aren’t big into football can still have a good time at the tailgate. They can enjoy grilled food, ice-cold beverages, tasty snacks, great conversation, and even the traditional tailgating games like cornhole and ladder golf. On top of that, tailgating is family-friendly and fun for all ages, so husbands, wives, and kids can have an opportunity to come out and meet your coworkers.

With spirits high and inter-office relationships strengthened, productivity is sure to skyrocket. Not only will your employees have a great time at the game, but they’ll take from it the feeling that their employer cares. They will be excited to work for a company that treats its employees like a team.

Is Your Organization Fueling Breast Cancer Awareness?

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Rally to support the fight against this terrible disease by spreading awareness in your community. Whether your organization sponsors a Race for the Cure, a charity fundraiser, or another type of awareness campaign, there’s a lot you can do to help fight the good fight.

Cancer doesn’t just affect the life of the person afflicted; a diagnosis can touch the lives of loved ones, too. And we’re not as far removed from the problem as we may think. A staggering 1 in every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, so it’s likely a member of our family has been directly affected by this disease.
Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most highly diagnosed cancer among women in the United States, equaling roughly 30% of all newly diagnosed cancers.

Though women are exponentially more likely to develop breast cancer, it’s not exclusively a female problem. Men are expected to be diagnosed with 2,350 cases of invasive breast cancer this year.

The bright side, though, is that through advanced research, early detection from screening, and awareness campaigns, mortalities from breast cancer diagnoses have continued to drop year over year.

Do your part to help the cause. By distributing pink products, you and your organization can help raise breast cancer awareness this October.

Spread the word on prevention and treatment of this disease, schedule a mammogram for yourself or encourage a loved one to do so. Partner with a charity, or start a fundraiser. By taking part in this national awareness campaign, you could help save a life!

Imprinted Pong Balls Are Great For Your Brand

Custom Ping Pong Balls<br /> <meta name="description" content="Custom ping pong balls - Get the team or brand recognition you deserve.<br /> </meta></meta>

custom ping pong balls

Since the dawn of time, necessity has always been the mother of invention. Are those mammoth steaks too raw, fella? Try some fire! Having trouble lugging all those rocks back and forth? Say hello to the wheel! Feel the need to both slap and chop something? Vince’s gotcha covered.

However, until the early 1950’s, college students everywhere were thirsty for an entertaining party game. Surprising as it may sound, standing around and socializing about Eisenhower’s latest policies wasn’t exactly the most enjoyable pastime. So a few innovative minds at Dartmouth college decided to shake things up a bit.

What goes best with alcohol consumption? A game of hand-eye coordination, of course! Thus, beer pong was born. In its infancy, the game was played with paddles and a net, much like standard table tennis. However, because a drunken individual and a blunt object may not be the best companions, some changes had to be made. Around about the 1980’s, the game was simplified to the red-cup-pyramid version we see in campuses and garages across America today. Renowned among frat guys and tailgaters alike, beer pong is the cornerstone of many celebrations.

What would any game of beer pong be without the ping pong balls? Well, probably not a much of a game at all. Just a bunch of cups on a table. Luckily, we don’t have to worry about pong ball shortage. rushIMPRINT offers an enormous variety of custom ping pong balls onto which you can imprint whatever logo you need. Think about it – boatloads (yes that’s the scientific estimate) of people across the country play beer pong every day. As a company, would you rather they use a plain, white ball, or one with your logo screen printed all over it? Though their memory of last night’s party might be forever lost, the morning after spent cleaning up garbage, pizza, bottles and ping pong balls is sure to stick with them. With rushIMPRINT’s custom pong balls, so can your brand.

Aside from their collegiate uses, custom ping pong balls are great to help raise productivity and promote healthy activity in the workplace. Many offices have a lounge or break room with a ping pong table. With your company’s logo imprinted on each ball, your brand will be showcased with every serve. Our regulation-size balls come in a variety of colors and can be coordinated to perfectly complement your company’s logo. Great to giveaway for corporate wellness programs or to youth and community centers, ping pong balls make excellent promotional products.

Not sure what branded merchandise would best work within your marketing mix? Get a hold of one of our helpful product specialists at 1-866-277-7874 or chat live directly on our site. We’re here Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Rally Towels, Not Just For Football

In just a few weeks, that magical time of year will be upon us. As the leaves begin to turn, football season will be in full-swing. Crowds will flood stadiums in a sea of home-team color. Men and women will gather around the couch with tablets and phones in-hand, shouting in victory or sobbing in defeat as the players of their fantasy leagues face off against each other.

But no matter if your team is the Bills or the Broncos, the Cowboys or the Redskins, one thing remains constant; you want to show your support. What better way to do this than by waving a custom-imprinted rally towel?

Aside from pumping up the crowd with a twirl and a shout, rally towels serve to promote brand recognition for football franchises. Everyone who sees these colorful tokens are being exposed to the message the franchise is trying to convey; “Our Team is the best!” Your business can benefit from rally towels in much the same way.

custom rally towelsPeople can always find a good use for custom rally towels . This makes them a great choice for a promotional product. From sports to weddings, their application versatility allows for a great deal of exposure in a wide variety of areas. Not only will your logo be in front of customers’ eyes on a repeat basis, but all of those surrounding them will also learn to recognize your logo and associate it with quality products.

Don’t let the low price fool you. Even cheap rally towels such as our best-selling model #TRU-18, are made of high quality materials and crafted with care. At rushIMPRINT, we strive to provide a promotional item on which you will be proud to display your company’s logo. These towels are made of 100% cotton, and the large 15” by 18” area is designed to quickly absorb moisture. Customers who’ve ordered this towel have expressed their satisfaction directly on the product page:

When choosing a promotional item for your branding campaign, you want something that will be used on a regular basis, and will receive continued exposure over its lifetime. Promotional rally towels such as the Go Go Rally towel, with its large 10” x 8” imprint area to showcase your logo, will give you a great return on your investment, and provide your company exposure in areas where you would not ordinarily have access.

When you prefer something a little different to stand out either as a giveaway or as a gift, a selection such as the Sport Towel in a Bag, made of 100% polyester microfiber, or the Jewel Collection fingertip sport/stadium rally towels may be just what you are looking for. Rather than a cheap throwaway item at your next convention or tradeshow, concentrate your branding efforts on an item that is sure to please all who receive it.

Select the design of promotional rally towels that best suits your advertising needs, and give one of our helpful agents at rushIMPRINT a call at 1-866-277-7874. We’re here Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST.

Why Your Business Needs Team Builders

“Team Builders, huh?”

Yea, I know. But humor me for a moment, ok? Suspend the eye rolling and smarmy scoffs – you know, the ones that usually follow shortly after someone mentions the words “team” and “builder” in short succession. Keep an open mind and I promise by the end of this post you’ll think about it in a different light.

Within the dregs of nine-to-five monotony, it’s often easy for employees and employers alike to become complacent; satisfied in the same comfortable routine, day in, and day out. Sure, productivity isn’t suffering, so why change?

Well, because it’s not improving, either.

Consistency can be great when it comes to things like punctuality, assembly line manufacturing, and remembering to call your gram on her birthday, but if you’re seeking advancement rather than plateaus (and you should be), it’s time to mix it up a bit. Crush that office stagnation with a Team Building day.

What are the Benefits of Team Building Exercises?

They break the ice like a massive Arctic Ship.

ice breaker

Everyone has those first conversation insecurities. We try small talk.

“So, how about this rain, Jim? It’s quite a thing when water falls from the sky is it not?”

“Our home team achieved more points than their opponents. We should feel victorious by association, no?”

“Coffee is good at making one feel less tired, would you not agree?”

“Monday is certainly a day of the week.”

Not much substance there. These types of conversations are great for robots, but do nothing to encourage coworkers to connect on a deeper level. It’s understandable, though. Often, the fear of not knowing what to say or saying the wrong thing (or maybe just lack of coffee) leaves many people avoiding office dialogues altogether.

Instead of just going through the motions, try putting together a team building exercise. This will provide a means of conversation to those employees who may not, under normal circumstances, have the opportunity to talk to each other. It’s hard to feel disconnected to your fellow coworker when a three-legged race has the two of you literally bound at the shins.

By facilitating workplace communication with hands-on activities, you’ll get all the members of your team talking to each other and working like a finely-oiled machine.

They Jump-start employee morale

Sometimes, it’s great to be rewarded beyond a paycheck. Everyone loves being told they’ve done a great job. Helping your employees feel inspired and motivated outside of the office can help boost morale. As corny as it may sound, participating in team building activities can give employees the sense that they’re part of a winning team.

And of course, they’re fun!

It’s work. You can’t expect to have the time of your life from Monday through Friday. You get in, do your job and come home. Home is where you enjoy yourself.

At the same time, there’s no rule that says you can’t inject a little fun here and there, especially when that fun is productive. Games are a great way to break up the tedium. When people are enjoying themselves at work, they become more productive, creative, and motivated.
