If ye be anything like me, the lack of brew portability in this day and age can get ya crankier than a cheese-less bilge rat! Whether sailin’ the high seas in pursuit of wondrous plunder, or just peg-leggin’ back to my seat at a Pirates’ game, it seems like I always gotta keep one peeper peeled on me drink makin’ sure not to spill it. Though flagons be a fine vessel at the pub, I’d trade me good leg for a proper container with a trusty lid. The seas be a tumultuous vixen and as they toss me about, I can’t help but splash me rum on deck! Though it makes a good solvent for swabbin’, I’d rather have the stuff in me gullet!
Just when I was about tah give up all hope fer such a contraption, I stumbled upon the most wondrous treasure at Rush Imprint. In terms of drink transportability, the Brew2go Tumbler is just what me heart’s been searchin’ fer. With a whopping 18 oz. of beverage capacity, this tumbler is no wee nipperkin, so you know it can hold plenty of swill. Double wall insulation helps keep the grog chilly without freezing your hand, or hook, in me case. With the thumb-slide closure on the lid, swiggin’ is easier than takin’ doubloons from a baby! The empty cavity of this insulated tumbler resembles the top half of a beer bottle turned on its head, which be perfect for mateys with short term memory loss who often forget what they be drinkin’! Being “hand wash only” is no problem for a buccaneer such as meself; the ol’ vessel don’t come equipped with a fancy dishwasher anyhow.
Oh but the true gem of this haul is getting it custom imprinted with my logo! Just like the dreaded Jolly Roger, I’ve slapped a swarthy skull ‘n’ bones on these insulated cups so everybody knows what kind of scurvy dogs they belong to! I’ve taken such a shine to ‘em that I ordered enough for me whole crew! So listen well, me hearties, if ye be after a spill proof, insulated mug tah keep yer grog cold, the Brew2go Tumbler is worth its weight in gold!
An Adventure with the Wool Epiphany Journal
February 3rd, 2014
My first nature adventure! I’m so excited to get away from the hustle and bustle of big-city life and connect back with the environment. It seems like our generation has become more and more reliant on technology and with our faces constantly glued to iPads, youPads, we all scream for newPads, a relaxing nature hike will be a welcome change of pace. I’ve even picked up this custom, American made Wool Epiphany Journal with my picture so I can record my journey in wonderful analog! My fingers have gotten so used to keys and touch-screens that I almost forgot how to use a pen! Anyways, it’s time these boots get to trekkin’! More to come later!
February 4th, 2014
So, trying to fall asleep while wild wolves and wind howl together outside your tent is no simple task. I ended up pulling my sleeping bag tightly over my head, leaving just enough breathing space for my nose and mouth. Ha-ha, now I know what a burrito feels like! Yea, it may take some getting used to at first, but at least I’m doin’ it! Just me and Mama Nature – To heck with Twitter and Facebook, all I need is the outdoors and this imprinted wool epiphany journal to keep track of my exploits.
February 6th, 2014
A wild boar chased me down yesterday. Though I managed to escape with only a few bruises and cuts (which may be infected by the looks of things), my personalized wool epiphany journal fell out of my rucksack and into a puddle. I had to hang it by its leather strap and let it air dry for the rest of the night. On top of that, some animals have managed to find their way into my grub stash while I was sleeping and eat a good portion of my food. Awesome. But hey, at least the sun is shining and I can take in all this fresh air. Yay, nature… Man, I’d kill for a smooth cup of Starbucks java right now.
February 7th, 2014
These darn birds and their chirping…I oughta feed your beaks…with my FIST! Ugh. Where’s their snooze button? So today, as you might suspect, I’m up with the sun. Which is great, I guess. It gives me time to accurately plot out all the leaves and sticks I’ll be walkin’ over today. Oh look, it’s a brown leaf! Hey a green one! What a shocker, it’s another twig, how keen! I think I’ve had my fill of this tree huggin’ life. I can’t wait to get home, turn on the tube and collapse in my bed.
February 9th, 2014
I have no idea where I am. Somewhere on the path between the bush that looks like Duane “The Rock” Johnson and the rock that looks like Emma Stone, I made a wrong turn. This freezing cold wind is cutting deep to my bones and I can barely step foot outside my tent, let alone my sleeping bag. Gosh, why didn’t I bring my phone with me!? Oh right, I wanted to be some kind of rugged mountaineer. A real man’s man – rough and tumble. All this to impress Jenny from accounting. Yea, you’re gonna kick the bucket alone in the wilderness, REAL impressive. Someone else is bound to come along, right? That nature website said that this is a fairly popular hiking trail. Oh internet, how I miss you.
February 10th, 2014
My fire is getting low and so is my wood supply. Well, at least this wool epiphany journal is flammable. Wait, are those footsteps or just more hunger-induced hallucinations!?
February 11th, 2014
I don’t know how much longer I had. Thank goodness those hikers showed up when they did! I was munching on the last couple crackers I had, watching my fire smolder to ash when fate twisted my way for the first time since I started this adventure! The chipped paint and rust stains on my front door never looked so beautiful. That’s the last time I do something crazy like that. Man, I can’t wait to post this to my blog.
Since the dawn of time, necessity has always been the mother of invention. Mammoth steaks too raw, fella? Boom, fire. Having trouble lugging all those rocks back and forth? Well 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. Standing around and socializing about Eisenhower’s latest policies surprisingly wasn’t as enjoyable as it sounds, so a few innovative minds at Dartmouth college decided to shake things up a bit.
As any sensible person would conclude, a game of hand-eye coordination would be the perfect companion to alcoholic beverage consumption. Thus, beer pong was born. In the infancy of its conception, the game was initially played with paddles and a net, much like standard table tennis. However, common sense soon dictated that maybe a drunken individual and a blunt object weren’t the best companions. In the 1980’s the game was simplified to the version we know today. Renowned among frat guys and tailgaters alike, beer pong is often the cornerstone of any celebration.
What would any game of beer pong be without the ping pong balls? Well, probably pretty strange, I’d imagine – a bunch of drunks standing around a table, arranging cups in odd triangle shapes. Doesn’t sound like a good time to me. Luckily, we don’t have to suffer such a fate. Rush Imprint 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 vomit, pizza, bottles and ping pong balls is sure to stick with them. With Rush Imprints custom pong balls, so can your logo.
Paper bags: We all need ‘em, but often we don’t actually think about how essential they can be to the wide consumer base they serve. Picture it. You just picked out a slew of outfits from your favorite department store. You’ve got several pairs of pants, a dozen or so new shirts and maybe even a pair of shoes or two. Not a bad haul. Now imagine trying to carry all that paraphernalia from the store to your car, or even worse, onto the bus or subway. Struggling to keep all your stuff clean, neatly folded and off the ground would be a near impossibility. This process would be made all the more difficult, not to mention goofy looking if it weren’t for shopping bags – the unsung hero of the merchandise world.
Clearly, bags aren’t limited to apparel, and as such can be seen just about anywhere products are sold or distributed. This offers an outstanding opportunity for brand recognition. Every consumer is essentially a potential billboard for your company logo. Rush Imprint offers you the ability to capitalize on this enormous market with their wide variety of customizable shopping bags. The Jenny Eco Shopper is a fine example of such a bag.
Made from 100% recycled paper (with a minimum of 95% post-consumer materials), this environmentally friendly brown kraft shopper is the perfect place both in which to place your merchandise as well as on which to slap your logo. With dimensions of 13 inches tall, 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep, the Jenny Eco Shopper can fit a large assortment of products. Personalize your bag with your choice of color and make it as large as 7 by 7 inches, a size noticeable even from across the street. Tremendous discounts are available for bulk orders, so stock up today!
Sports. Boy they’re keen. There’s nothing more exhilarating than watching fierce athletic competition in person. You know what’s not so keen though? Sweating your tail off while you watch. Sitting shoulder to shoulder with the dame or bloke next to you, having to fight over the armrest and trying to maximize what little real estate a packed stadium gives your legs can be a task in itself. The last thing you need is that blasted sun givin’ you the business with its scorching rays. On top of that, wearing around those hot foam fingers, oversized caps and jerseys isn’t doing you any favors. Sure, you just want to support your favorite team, but that doesn’t mean you have to sweat like them while you do it.
Fortunately, Rush Imprint offers a perfect solution. Their Plastic Hand Fans provide a simple, effective answer to both your cooling and cheering needs. Standing 6.75 inches tall but only weighing a trivial 0.07lbs, you can easily carry this custom plastic hand fan around wherever you go. It’s so light you may forget you’re even holding it, but your team won’t – especially not with the 4 by 3 inch custom logo imprinted on the front. So wave it in confidence, sports enthusiast, knowing that the plastic hand fan is working hard to keep you breezy and your team steezy. (That’s what the kids are saying these days, right?)
Expand your horizons, though, because these screen printed fans aren’t just for sports, they can be personalized with any single color logo your heart desires. Perfect for trade shows, conventions or other promotional events, these branded fan-deds will fill whatever purpose you can dream up. Order in bulk to both save a little dough as well as spread your brand recognition to the masses.
“What’s thatcha say? You’re a who phone? An eye-what? Sorry sonny, but you’ll have to speak up! All I can make out is a faint whisper comin’ from yer general direction. You’ll have to forgive me, but along with some other things, Charlie took a bit of my hearing from me back in ‘Nam.”
“Ahh that’s better! Now yer comin’ in loud and clear. So you’re an iPhone, huh? Well that explains the complete lack of hands, arms and a torso. Then again, I saw plenty of that out on the rice paddies. Johnny…Poor old fool. I told you to watch your six not your nine!”
“Anywho. What’s that little contraption you got stuck on your side there? A Soundbyte iPhone Speaker? Well ain’t that a fancy little device. I mean I’ve seen iPhone cases before, but ya say this thing bumps up your sound like a pair of speakers? Amazing! And you got this from Rush Imprint, customized with your full-color company logo, to boot. Well that’s some crazy level of personalized production that I’ve never seen!”
“It’s pretty keen how that little custom speaker acts like a stand and holds you sideways, allowing for perfect media viewing in a landscape ratio. So if I wanted to get one of those with my picture, I could do that too? Man that’s spiffy. Showing of that branded logo at all kinds of trade shows gotta drain you pretty quick, huh? Well that’s good that you don’t even need any external power on this sucker, unlike those other, battery powered iPhone speakers.”
“A custom imprinted speaker with whatever personalized, screen-printed logos I can dream up? God bless America!”
Bein’ a Soul Man in this day and age can sometimes be harsh. Times are tough and often, you find yourself chewin’ on a Rubber Biscuit for sustenance. With the trials and tribulations that come with the territory, it’s clear that the life of a musician isn’t for everyone, but hey, you can’t help who you are. When those soulful notes call your name with their siren’s call, there’s no denying them. All you can do is strap that guitar to your back, stash a couple blues harps in yer pocket and head on down to the crossroads. Traveling that dusty desert road like a wayfarer can be unforgiving and fraught with all sorts of dangers: Cacti, vultures, the devil waiting to strike a deal and let’s not forget about that relentless jerk sun, beating down on your already weary eyes. With all your cash goin’ into your music, maybe you can’t afford those fancy Ray Bans. You still need a solid pair of sunglasses though, because other than a night or two at Heartbreak Hotel, Nothing will give ya a case of the blues worse than temporary blindness.
Fret not, weary bluesman, because at Rush Imprint, we hear your eyes screamin’ “Gimme some Lovin’” and we can offer them sound protection. Our Blues Brothers Customized Sunglasses fit just about any adult head and can be imprinted with whatever logo you need. The insanely low price is affordable on even the strictest budget, and although it may seem too good to be true, we assure you: no soul contract is required.
“You’re tellin’ me I can get cheap sunglasses personalized with my logo?”
You better believe it. We even go a step further, and for two extra days of production and a slight increase in price, we offer personalized, custom imprinting on both sides of these shades. Getting your band name or even company logo the recognition it deserves has never been easier or more stylish, so pass these bad boys out at your next show and spread the cool.
I don’t know about you, but every morning I wake up, even before I brush my teeth or pour out those Lucky Charms, the first thing I do is ask myself, “Where in the name of Nasonex has Antonio Banderas been!?” Ever since that (relatively) tall dark and handsome hunk of man meat first took a bite of my heart as Armand in Interview with a Vampire, I knew I was love-struck. Long hair? Check. Sexy foreign accent? Check. Rippling pecks peeking their way from behind romantic Victorian attire? Yea, that’s a big ol’ CHECK! And don’t even get me started on his seductively haunting come hither eyes.
“Oh Antonio, I want to come thither, but it’s dangerous!”
Ah but that’s all part of the allure now, isn’t it? Kids today with their Twilight new moon old moon waxing/waning moon nonsense don’t know what a REAL manpire is. Thin and mopey crybabies whining about this and that, taking girls on piggyback rides through the woods…please. Get outta here with that noise. Gimme my ‘Tonio!
See, but here’s the good news. I recently stumbled on a product that can hold me over on those long Armand-less days. Together, The wonderful folks at the Nabisco Oreo Company and Rush Imprint have collaborated to offer lovely custom Oreo Picture Cookies on which you can embellish 1.25 inches of any image your heart desires. I don’t think I need to clarify what my heart desires, but maybe you’ve got different cravings. For instance, instead of taking a big bite out of Mr. Banderas’ gorgeous visage, maybe you want a custom picture of your favorite sports team or company logo on your cookie. A little bland if you ask me, but hey, it’s your cookie. Personalize it however you want.
Did I mention these are Oreos? I know I did but I feel like I need to stress it again. And not just any old Nabisco Oreo, but ones that are dipped in delicious Belgian white chocolate and covered in little colored sprinkles to match your image. Let’s recap: You can get your favorite picture on milk’s favorite cookie. What are you waiting for?
Are you in the market for a sturdy, inexpensive water bottle for your next promotion? You might want to consider the 20 oz Water Bottle when you are making your choice.
Even though this water bottle is relatively low cost, thus making it an attractive purchase for large scale giveaways, it has a large number of features that make it a valuable promotional item. It is molded from HDPE (high-density polyethylene), giving it a high specific strength. It also means that iit is capable of withstanding somewhat higher and lower temperatures. It is made with recycled material, which makes it environmentally friendly, and it is BPA free, meaning that typical health concerns from chemicals are not an issue. It is also made in the USA, meaning that you are supporting American jobs and the economy. It holds a large 20 ounce drink, and is available in a huge variety of colors. Choose from solid colors, neon colors, two colors,; light, bright and even eco colors. There is a 3.5” X 3.5” imprint area for your logo, and you can enjoy a 3-4 color logo imprint. Perhaps the only drawback to this bottle is that it is not microwavable.
Bike riding has once again become a major pastime, for everyone from the casual cyclist to those taking part in races and even triathalons. Rides of 20 miles or more are not uncommon, and those such as the Ironman triathalon in Panama City Beach include a swim, bike ride and run, a grueling task in the Florida heat. These riders all need hydration, and a water bottle that travels along with them is essential. Providing them with water bottles with your logo on them is a great way to get exposure and gain good will for your company.
The 20 oz Water Bottle is a great promotional idea, getting your company information in front of a great many individuals. It can be given away at the beginning of races, sold to fans and bystanders, and even used as part of a large prize package for the winners.
Whenever you are considering using a promotional product as part of an advertising campaign, you know how important it is to choose the best one for your purposes. You want something that will be memorable, will be held onto and used again and again in a variety of places; you want something that your customers and potential customers both want and need.
The Ring-a-Ling Cowbell is the perfect example of a promotional item that will fulfill all these requirements and more. These cowbells are a favorite around sports events everywhere, from high school to college sports teams having them as favorites.
A classic example of this is the Mississippi State University fans. For years, the cowbell has been a tradition at their games. Any groups and individuals have tried to ban their use over the years, but die-hard fans still use them at every game to herald their victories.
The origin of the cowbells use here, as in many other places, is not definitely known, but as always there are many possible stories. One has it that during an important game against their arch rival Rebels, a cow wandered onto the field during play. The team won against their opponent, and immediately adopted the cow as a mascot. Ever after, the cowbell was an important part of the game. The bells are marketed through the school bookstore itself.
The loud bell of the best selling Ring-a-Ling Cowbell will help to advertise your company at many game events, with your logo prominently displayed on the front. It is available in 4 colors plus white, giving you a good choice of background to complement or contrast your logo. Either way, your logo will stand out and be highly visible, and the bell ringing will help draw attention to it. This is a large 2.88” X 2.88” bell, making sure that it can be seen even from a distance. Many of the Ring-a-Ling Cowbell are taken home and proudly displayed for years to come, often as part of a collection.
