Creating a Unique Image with Napkins

2 Jul

Looking for unique napkins to give as a gift or to use at a party or corporate event?  Consider printing a custom logo or artwork on a set of napkins for a very special touch. From corporate events to conferences to in-office appointments, providing your guests with printed napkins featuring artwork or a logo is the perfect opportunity to enhance or introduce a brand or create a special look at a social event.june-photo-napkins

If you have a wedding logo or custom-designed monogram, using it on a set of napkins can add a very personal touch at an engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and/or at the wedding.  And for special celebrations like anniversary parties and 50th birthday parties, unique artwork or a photo can make a statement and set the tone for the event.  Even kid’s artwork can be printed on napkins and will make your little artist feel absolutely proud of his or her masterpiece.

Digital full-color napkins are personalized on white or ivory social-quality napkins in beverage or luncheon size with a high quality 4-color process.  Our napkins are recyclable and made & printed in the USA.

Wonderful uses for custom napkins include featuring a picture of a favorite pet, showcasing an image of a boat or rendering of a home for a one-of-a-kind housewarming gift, introducing a new business logo at a corporate event, or printing an image of someone’s painting can make a thoughtful present.   Personalized full-color napkins provide a wonderful addition to special celebrations and event planning needs.

The A, B, C’s of Luggage Tags

22 Jun

june-luggageTags

Have you ever wondered the best way to personalize luggage tags?  There is the typical “name, address and phone number” answer but it really depends on how the tags are being used and who will be using them to know what’s appropriate.

Of course luggage tags can be used for suitcases, which is the traditional purpose.  But some other uses include identification of gym bags, backpacks, diaper bags, camp bags, athletic bags, computer bags, ski bags, golf bags, tote bags, musical instrument cases, brief cases and more.  Deciding which type of tag to choose and what information to include depends on the purpose of the tags.

For adults using luggage tags for suitcases while traveling and for other bags being carried by adults, the printed information should primarily include the following information:

(1) Your full name or at least your last name;

(2) A mobile phone number.  If your luggage is lost, the mobile number will be the easiest way to reach you. If there is no mobile number available use a home number;

(3) An email address.  Depending how security-conscious you are, you may consider skipping your primary personal e-mail address and setting up secondary e-mail just for your travel purposes;

(4) An alternate phone number. Consider listing an extended family member’s number who can assist if you are on the road.

Remember, since your luggage is out of your hands when you do short or long domestic or international travel, you do not want to publicize too much personal information. A number of experts suggest not listing a home address, as it can easily alert burglars that you are away from home when they see you traveling.  And it’s very infrequent that anyone would ship or deliver a lost suitcase to your home without contacting you first.

For items being used by teens or adults, the luggage tag should include a full name (or at least last name) and a home or mobile phone number.  If the tag is being used on a young child’s bag, for security reasons, consider simply an imprint such as: “Call (123) 456-7890 if Found” without a name or other information at all to prevent any issues with strangers.

If you wonder what type of luggage tags are best, we would suggest adding brightly colored luggage tag if you use a standard black suitcase.  This will make finding your suitcase much easier as there are usually so many bags that look the same when traveling.  A unique tag might even prevent the wrong party from picking up your suitcase thinking it was theirs.

Luggage tags are a practical and stylish way to make identifying bags easily.  When selecting a luggage tag you might notice different materials, such as laminated, brass, leather, or acrylic.  They are all very strong and useful.  So simply determine a style you feel the user will enjoy.  There are designs and materials suitable for everything from executive travel to a diaper bag!

Why Personalized Everything is So Popular

16 Jun

june-personalized-giftsOf all the niche markets, the personalized segment continues to grow annually.  From home decor to stationery to party napkins and more, personalization is key in creating the wow factor.

A fresh box of personalized stationery, an stylish address stamper or a perfectly printed box of notepads will easily become a beloved gift.  When someone takes the extra time to order something personalized, it adds something special to the gift and is usually really appreciated.  For kids, personalizing an item for them is exciting as they instantly become a rock star.  And for adults, a great monogram or name imprint on a classic gift will be surely appreciated and will become a present well used and remembered.

Never before has it been so easy to order from thousands of Gift Ideas.  From embroidery to engraving, thermography to embossing, the choices are plentiful.  Whether you are looking for birthday gifts, teacher gifts, graduation gifts or holiday gifts, there are so many choices that finding the perfect present at the right price point is simple.

Today, creating a unique look or “brand” for occasions like a wedding, anniversary party, holiday party or birthday celebration helps set the tone for the event.  Taking a special phrase, classic or custom monogram or design and having it foil-stamped on napkins, party favors, disposable drinking glasses and stir sticks can set the color theme, the style and the extra detail necessary to make the party memorable.  These are the sort of additions to a party that will create a splash with minimal investment.

For all your upcoming celebrations, take some time and look through all the options. Think about the gifts you want to give for upcoming occasions and about what the recipient might like.  Perhaps they love to entertain and a fresh set of engraved wine glasses would be enjoyed, or maybe they love to have pretty paper on their desk and a nice set of personalized post-its would be well-used.  These are the type of gifts that someone might not necessarily pick out for themselves, but would love to receive and would truly enjoy.  From gifts to party supplies, personalizing is an easy, fast and unique option.

Best wishes,
