Custom Beach Balls | Magellan’s Finest Achievement

beach ball promotional productsMany historians out there consider themselves to be pretty well-versed on their knowledge of early global explorers, and while it’s true that Ferdinand Magellan’s was the first voyage to circum-navigate the globe, his motives are somewhat disputed. Some say that he was out for the glory of country while others maintain that he was after both a route to the Spice Islands, and the riches that came along with its discovery. While it’s easy to say that each goal was simultaneously achieved, one of his main triumphs was the practical application of the spherical Earth theory. Why did he do this? Well, the answer might surprise you.

You and I know him as Ferdinand Magellan, however, many of his close friends more familiarly referred to him as “Ferdy”. It was a nickname you know, and though he wasn’t too fond of it, there’s not much one can do. When it sticks, trying to remove it only makes it worse – Kind of like wiping syrup from your hand with a dry tissue.

Regardless, Ferdy was a real concert rat. He would constantly scrimp and save to store away enough réis for tickets to his favorite live symphonic performances. He would make it a point to always catch renowned artists like Juan Bermudo, Alonso Mudarra and Diego Ortiz in-person. However, with live events also comes crowd interaction, and though Ferdy enjoyed a rowdy evening in the pit, there was also something not so enjoyable for him: Frisbees. Earth-themed Frisbees. You see, in Ferdy’s day, many people were under the assumption that the earth was flat. As such, they felt the need to celebrate this theory by crafting Frisbees which resembled the shape they believed the world to be. This would be all well and good were it not for the fact that so many unruly concert goers would toss these rigid disks around during their favorite tunes. After being struck in the back of the head multiple times, Ferdy decided that instead of politely asking these people to stop throwing their Frisbees around so haphazardly, the more practical solution would be to circumnavigate the globe using a fleet of wooden ships. Sounds logical, right? So in August of 1519, that’s exactly what he did. With a little determination, a hearty crew and funding from Charles 1 of Spain, Magellan embarked on what would become the legacy of his life.

Sadly, ol’ Ferdy didn’t get to see the conclusion of his ambitious adventure as he lost his life in a battle with natives on the island of Mactan in the Philippines. However, Juan Sebastián Elcano took up the reigns and was able to see Magellan’s journey to completion, finally offering tangible proof that the Earth is indeed round. Because of his brave acts, Magellan’s namesake was used for a number of things, including a penguin, craters on the moon and a straight in South America through which ships have sailed for centuries. Additionally, a solution to Ferdy’s initial concert problems has finally been created. The Globe Beach Ball is a spherical reminder of the dedication of a man and the passion he infused not only into his own endeavors, but also into his friends and crew members surrounding him.

The Globe and other custom beach balls like it are the perfect marketing ideas for the upcoming summer months.

Do you dare wear these at night?

<br /> Do You Dare Wear These at Night?<br />

custom sunglassesSome of us like to protect our eyes. Others enjoy making a unique fashion statement. The innovative among us have found a way to do both at once. How? The answer is simple: custom sunglasses! Think about it: That sun is up there in the sky beating down on ya, givin’ you a case of the squints and generally making life miserable for your peepers. Boom! Throw on a pair of shades and that problem fades! Of course, you want to stand out from the crowd at the same time, right? Well that’s not a problem. Make your own sunglasses at rushIMPRINT with a near endless selection of color and style combinations including: wayfarers, aviators rubberized sunglasses and more.

For less than a buck per pair, you can inexpensively express your individuality with these affordable sunglasses. At receptions, no gift goes over as well or is more universal than customized sunglasses at your wedding. Give your matrimonial celebration a sense of style by imprinting the name of the bride and groom on the temple/arm of the sunglasses or even directly on the lenses themselves. These personalized gifts will make your wedding day live on for years to come.

The thrill-seeking individuals may opt to wear these sunglasses at night. Because of the low visibility offered to the wearer, this tactic is not recommended. It does, however, offer a way to watch individuals weave and/or breathe their story lines. Keep in mind, though, that while wearing sunglasses at night, it is imperative that one neither switches the blade upon nor masquerades with individuals in shades. Oh no. Can you believe it? Neither can I, but it’s a fact. So whether you’re looking for protection from switchblade-wielding masqueraders or the sun, custom-made sunglasses are the way to go.

Custom Lip Balm

<br /> Custom Lip Balm<br />

Custom Lip BalmWalking through the Sahara desert can be a wearisome task. Sure, you’ve got the blistering sun, dehydration, lack of food and dangerous wildlife to deal with, but what really chaps my hide – more specifically my lips – is the fact that I left my lip balm in my other turban. Forget impending death foreshadowed by the scattered, bleached bones, the discomfort of peeling, dry lips is what’s driving me mad! The only thing that keeps me trudging on is the thought of walking through my front door and giving my wife a big ol’ wet smooch. She’s not going to want to pucker up for these cracked, disgusting lips, though, and I don’t blame her! It would be like having a make out sesh with a brillo pad; dry, scratchy and completely unappealing. So what’s a fellow to do?

Well, I tell you what I should’ve done, though it won’t do me any good right now. I should’ve ordered such a huge quantity of lip balm that I could have stuffed sticks of it in every turban and pocket that I own! That way, it would have been nigh impossible to leave home without my trusty lip balm. Could-haves and should-haves won’t help me now, so all I can do is hope I make it home, because the first thing I’m gonna do is log onto rushIMPRINT’s website and order myself a heaping helping of those marvelous sticks of waxy salve. Scratch that; first thing will be to take a drink, then smooch my wife, and then order my bulk supply of lip balm-gotta keep those priorities in order. Heck, at rushIMPRINT, I could even imprint these custom lip balm sticks with a message to help me remember… maybe a picture of an elephant on them or something. Those things never forget, right? Perhaps I could just have them imprinted with the message : “Dry Lips Sink Ships!”

Gosh, the more I focus on it, the more uncomfortable it gets. I just gotta think about something else – something completely unrelated to my lips or their lack of moisture. What about boots? Yea that might work, actually. Instead of focusing on the negative, I can be thankful for the things that I did right, like ordering this pair of Danner USMC RATs. They’ve got the perfect traction for this loose desert terrain and offer the moisture-wicking technology that any sweaty foot needs in these sweltering conditions. Now if only they could invent some type of reverse-moisture wicking fabric that I could put on my lips! Ugh I’m thinking about them again! Ok I need to stop focusing on them. Come to think of it, what on Earth ever possessed me to make this long trek across such an inhospitable wasteland? I remember watching some survivor special on TV and the next thing I knew, I’m in the desert doing my best Lawrence of Arabia impression. Gee whiz, I gotta turn town my emulation meter a few notches.

In any event, this will at least serve as a cautionary tale from which you may glean two facts. Number one: Never leave home without a few sticks of Lip Balm. Seriously. Head over to rushIMPRINT right now and put a few boatloads in your cart. Personalize ‘em with your logo or whatever, I don’t care. Just get ‘em. Secondly: Give your significant other a big ol’ smooch, because you never know when your foolish spontaneity could put you in dire straits! Wait a minute…I think I hear a helicopter over the horizon. Is this a chapped lip induced hallucination? No! Oh sweet salvation. Is that my dear wife leaning out the side!? Oh it is! She’s tossing down handfuls of personalized lip balm sticks, too, each of them displaying “I Love Ya!” on the side. I’ve never been happier to have said “I do”!

Custom Umbrellas

<br /> Custom Umbrellas<br />

custom umbrellasApril showers; everyone seems to love the fact that they bring the legendary May flowers for which the season is so well-known. Well heck with that, I say. I’m sick and tired of this rain. Day in and day out, those annoying little droplets keep smacking me on the head – everyone reassuring me that, “Hey, at least it isn’t snow!” Phooey! At least with snow, I know where I stand. The white stuff piles up and sure, it’s irritating having to shovel off the sidewalk every now and again, but at least snow brings with it several positive factors: Building up a jolly ol’ snowm’n, for instance. How fun is that!? I look forward to reincarnating Frosty every year, that coal-nosed bloke. Let’s not forget about snow days, either! I mean it’s been a while since I was in school, but few things brought me more joy as a kid than seeing the name of my school scrolling at the bottom of the TV screen.

But what does rain give us, huh?! Other than life giving water, I mean ok, sure, ya got me there. In its wake, though, it leaves behind a mucky, brown, muddy mess. Flooding streets and basements, mudslides, delaying ball games and making dogs smell bad are just a handful of the many of adverse effects of this drizzling disaster. So what can we do to battle this tyrannical force of nature? Well, nothing. But, on top of strapping on our favorite rubber boots, we can also protect our heads and upper shoulder regions from getting wet. Confused? Don’t be. I’m just talkin’ ‘bout umbrellas!

Custom Umbrellas are an amazing invention. Some may consider them a personal canopy of dryness; a mobile rain-shelter of sorts that protects you from that annoying cloud spit seeking to ruin not only your best tailored suit, but subsequently your whole day. Umbrellas are capable of so much more, too. In Ms. Poppins’ case, they provided a reliable means of transportation. For the Penguin, an entire arsenal of weaponry was stashed inside his different umbrellas, all of which helped him evade capture by the infamous Batm’n. For you, we offer completely customizable umbrellas available in countless styles and color combinations; all of which can be imprinted with your logo to help you gain brand recognition.
