Here are just a few items we’ve custom-created for clients, how we got them made, and why we think they’re great. Each of these projects came to life starting with a consultation, so feel free to drop us a line and let’s make your vision a reality!
Whether a Union, an academic organization, a nonprofit, or even a corporation, convention badges are an unavoidable necessity. For this organization, we created cast metal and enamel badges and medals, connected by custom-printed ribbons (utilizing different color combinations for different constituent groups). In order for attendees to be able to proudly display their badges, we worked to design custom-sized and cut vinyl credential pouches – these featured holes perfectly spaced for either one or two badges across, as well as pockets for name badges in the front and schedule booklets and event tickets in the back. To carry all the goods (and give attendees a place to show off their traded lapel pins), we created soft, satiny lanyards with safety release dye sublimated with both the event’s logo and the organization’s logo.
These reliable emblems of pride are probably our most requested item, not only for their staying power, but for the flexibility they offer in terms of design. There are few products that allow an organization to tell its story and show its personality the way lapel pins do!
This image includes several cloisonné hard enamel pins (considered “top of the line” when it comes to lapel pins), as well as die struck with and without soft enamel, in a variety of custom shapes and finishes. We are also able to provide screen and offset printed pins, etched enamel, epoxy dome pins, and of course, buttons… but the higher-end offerings tend to be most popular. Whether keeping it simple without colored enamels or making fun additions like screen printing, glitter, and rhinestones, the options are somewhat endless!
This project is a great example of how we can put together multiple elements for a stunning end result.
Our goal was to create a special memento commemorating an important milestone anniversary, which would be give away at a gala celebration. The centerpiece was a custom cast frame in pewter, featuring imagery depicting each trade practiced by the Union’s Brothers and Sisters. Needless to say, a blank space in the center of the frame wouldn’t do, so custom printed cards were created and inserted. Finally, custom sized and printed fluted tuck boxes (with inserts to keep the frame from slipping) were built to complete the presentation and provide the gifts with safe passage home.
Each item came from a different provider, but with vision and the right resources, anything is possible.
Fanny packs are back in a big way, but the fanny pack of today isn’t the same one we wore around theme parks in the 90’s! The two bags here were commissioned for their spacious interior, functional layout, and versatility.
Our “high end” version was produced in a mid-weight black canvas and embroidered. It features a thick silver-toothed metal zipper, wide, textured waistband, and heavy-duty clip closure. With interior and exterior slit pockets, there’s a space for everything you could need at work or play.
The alternate version provides maximum durability with a lighter weight – constructed of 600D coated polyester duck, this version has a wide webbed waistband with that strong click-closure. It mimics the layout of the canvas version, but features a leaner black metal zipper and screen printing on one pocket.
In our experience, give people a functional item and you’re guaranteed exposure. This trunk caddy prototype is an excellent example of just that. This version features 2 spacious bays constructed of a durable 600 denier poly and internal supports to ensure it won’t collapse while you’re on the move. We also added Velcro strips on the underside to help secure the caddy to most car floor mats, trunk mats, and wayback floors. With slit pockets on the exterior and an elastic band that wraps around it when collapsed, this handy piece hangs on to your goods when needed but stores nicely when it’s not.
Another reason we love this item is that it allows for a great deal of customization – from adding bays to mixing colors between your panels and trim, adding wraps on the handles, or getting creative with your decoration, there are plenty of ways to make this highly versatile item achieve the look and feel you have in mind.
Hashtags and social media campaigns are a great way to promote solidarity… and in this case, our clients wanted to show “SOCKSidarity”! We considered custom-woven socks featuring their logo, but after some consideration opted to produce these amazing dye sublimated socks – they feature an incredible amount of artistic detail and an endless array of colors… and best of all, the art was hand-drawn by a constituent of the group. It doesn’t get more personal than that!
