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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!?

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.
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.

“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.

Are you looking for a good quality flashlight to give away in your next advertising campaign? The Aluminum LED Flashlight may be just what you’re looking for. Your logo will look great printed on the light’s barrel, and no one ever throws away a flashlight!
Why should you choose an LED (light emitting diode) flashlight? LEDs consume less energy, have a longer life span, and emit more light per watt than standard light bulbs. They’re an ideal choice when frequent on/off power is used. This flashlight has nine white LED lights and a push button to turn it on and off. It uses 3 AAA batteries, which are included.
Flashlights are used quite often, in many different ways. How many times have you been walking to your car at night and dropped your keys? Hunting for them can be tricky if you’re not in a well lit area. The power goes out during a storm, it’s dark in the house, and you need to find candles and matches. Without a flashlight, this can be really difficult. Or maybe you’re out camping and need to locate firewood for your campfire. If you’re searching after dark, you’ll need to use a flashlight to hunt for it. The list of uses can go on and on.
Flashlights make excellent giveaways. They’re a frequent choice of sporting goods dealers, as well as hardware and home improvement stores. Real estate agencies consider them a valuable promotional product, too. The Aluminum LED Flashlight works well as a promotional item at conventions and tradeshows, or almost any community event. Don’t forget store openings, sales events, and open houses. Wherever or however you choose to distribute them, these flashlights will definitely give you your money’s worth in advertising benefits.
