Personalized Leather Jackets for Sales Awards and Corporate Gifts

Custom Leather JacketsPersonalized Leather Jackets create a unique and memorable corporate gift for years to come.  When companies offer personalized leather jackets in their incentive or award programs they see skyrocketing results!  There are a number of ways personalized leather jackets can be awarded.

Personalized leather jackets are used by many top companies for:
• Sales awards
• Service and safety awards
• Special promotions and corporate gifts

Some companies will opt to embroider their company logo on the front of a leather jacket. Others will want to use a more subtle approach and embroider the logo inside of the leather jacket, so although your logo is seen each and every time the jacket is worn by the recipient it is not considered a promotional item. In addition to the traditional left chest location your company logo can be embroidered on the “Neck Label” for a subtle, reminder of the gift provider. Certain leather jackets can be debossed or embroidered on the cuff for yet another alternate “low profile” location.

When purchasing personalized leather jackets, you need to look for a professional distributor that really knows the ins and outs of personalizing leather jackets.

Each logo must be properly modified for use on leather, from the stitch type and thread density, to the size and position.  Most leather jackets come with inside embroidery pockets. When inside embroidery pockets are used – It helps prevent the embroidery thread from being seen on the inside of the jacket lining.  Another essential element of a professional embroidery job is the digitizing of the corporate logo into a file than can be embroidered on leather jackets.  Sewing on leather jackets is not like sewing on caps or shirts or any other type of material used for baseball or outerwear jackets.

Debossing is an attractive alternative to embroidery. Debossing is fast becoming the typical choice for decorating on leather. By combining heat and pressure, debossing creates a subtle, yet stylish, way to reinforce your corporate image. Because of the subtle qualities of leather, there are limitations on lettering sizes and amount of space that must be maintain between characters. A professional distributor will be able to help you come up with the right decorating technique that will suit your program and corporate image.

Personalized Holiday Engraved Crystal Gift Items

Looking for a personalized holiday gift? Monogram and engraved crystal gift items are a great idea. There are many crystal gift items that can be personalized and engraved with a name, dates, funny saying or a personal note from you. The holiday season is a time for many weddings and we have quite a few customers who call upon us every time they receive a wedding invitation. They always order the crystal champagne bucket engraved with the wedding invitation. This is truly a unique gift and it is also practical. Every time the bride or groom uses their engraved champagne bucket, they will remember the giver, as well as have a wonderful conversation piece to discuss with their guests.

Another great personalized gift item for either a housewarming gift or a personalized holiday gift would be crystal servicing dishes, or crystal drinking glasses. Monograms engraved on these pieces add a wonderful, personal touch. Many of the engraved drinking glasses come in sets, so you can help to complete a set of drink ware for a newlywed couple or someone just starting out on their own. One year you can give personalized iced tea glasses and for the next holiday or birthday event possibly an engraved set of rocks glasses.

My very favorite gift of all is for newborn babies. Each time someone I know gives birth, I send them a custom lead-crystal ornament engraved with the baby’s first name and birth date. No one else will give such a personalized gift. Many parents receive clothes , bibs and blankets that will be outgrown so soon, but a personalized ornament for the baby is an item that can be used all year round as a sun-catcher and then hung on the tree at Christmas time. This truly unique gift will be remembered throughout the years.

When is a Watch a Gift and When is a Watch a Promotion? Part 2 of 2

Following up on installement 1 – Watches can be used as gifts, promotional products or as a corporate gift as symbols of achieving an elite status.

Case Back Engraving:

Case backs of watches can be engraved with corporate logos and commemorative text. When a watch is engraved on the case back it is generally considered a "gift" and not a promotion. Some watch manufacturers do not leave any blank areas on the case back for engraving. In this case, a circle must be "buffed" to allow for a clear engraving area. There is usually an additional charge for this service.

There is usually a required purchase of a minimum number of watches of twelve or more for this type of decoration when it involves a corporate or organization logo, but a single watch can generally be engraved on the case back when standard text is used.  When engraving the case back the customer is charged per character.

Clasp Engraving:

Clasps of bracelet style watches can be engraved with corporate logos and commemorative text. When a watch is engraved on the clasp it is generally considered a "gift" and not a promotion. There is usually a required purchase of a minimum number of watches of twelve or more for this style decoration when it involves a corporate or organization logo.

When is a Watch a Gift and When is a Watch a Promotion? Part 1 of 2

Watches can be used as gifts, as promotional products and also as symbols of achieving an elite status.

Promotional Watch Gifts:

When watches are custom imprinted on the dials with logos it is generally considered a promotional gift designed to repeatedly show the logo or "promote" the logo of the company or organization. Even when they are given to employees, in most cases, dial imprinted watches are considered promotional gifts or promotional products. There is usually a required minimum purchase number of watches starting at twelve or more for this type of decoration.

One of the most ingenious dial imprints has been by Freestyle, a maker of Surfer style watches. Freestyle imprints the underside of the crystal with their name in small print so that it does not impact the watch dial function.

Custom Dial Molds and Medallions:

The exception to decorating the dial with a printed logo is when a custom dial is created as a medallion in a limited series. A watch dial created in this manner is generally considered a special gift and signifies the owner is a member of a special group or club. There is usually a required purchase of a minimum number of watches of twelve to twenty four or more for this type of decoration.

Handpicked shoes by monthly subscription

I came across this article and thought it was a terrific idea for those who love new shoes- I am a barefoot kind of girl, but used to love wearing heels when I was younger and working for someone else (gotta admit, it might be fun to join and get back in to a bit of fashion).

Springwise Newsletter – October 22  — Hard on the heels—so to speak—of our story about Hipstery comes news of a like-minded contender in the world of shoes. Where Hipstery relieves consumers of the burden of choice and picks its t-shirts for them, ShoeDazzle does much the same for shoes, but on a recurring, monthly basis.

Users of Los Angeles-based ShoeDazzle begin by taking a fashion survey, the results of which are used to guide the company's personalized shoe selections. Each month, ShoeDazzle's personal stylists then send the user an email with five new shoe choices, handpicked to suit her personality and fashion preferences. The user simply logs into the site to select the pair she wants, and it gets shipped out for free. Monthly membership costs USD 39, which covers the shoes and shipping. Members can skip a month's selections, in which case they won't be charged; they can also return or exchange shoes they don't like.

ShoeDazzle currently ships only within the United States and Canada, but it's a safe bet that fashion-minded consumers in other parts of the world would also appreciate some monthly shopping guidance, for shoes, clothes or accessories. Website:
