Just added to our Memory Stick Store a credit card sized USB Flash Drive. We can offer a full color digital imprint. You can find many uses, Think company brochures, catalogs, magazines, media kits, event programs, trade show promotions, anything requiring a full color imprint.
Capture the full spectrum of your imagination with our new full color printing process. An overall richer portrayal of your brand image.
This past week we sold an order for our 16oz.clear corn plastic cups from our Corn Plastic Store. Our customer has a new recycled "green" material that they are selling. To promote it they will be serving green beer at a trade show in January. The clear cups to be filled with the green beer will have a white imprint so it will be able to be read in front of the beer ....more

The factory just received too many last minute orders and could not keep up. They are a week behind. It's just something that we can't control at this time of the year.
Here's a great reason to order calendars early in the year when the factory is not busy. In fact most of our calendar companies offer an early order discount for ordering in the first quarter of the year. The calendars are produced in the slow season, stored for the customer, shipped in the fall and billed when they are shipped with payment due on November 30 of that year.
Monday I'll try to get the factory to ship one day earlier and if we ship UPS 3 day, they'll get there on the 19th, which should be enough time for my customer to deliver to her customers before she leaves. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
We are still taking orders for 2007 Calendars. Of course they'll be delivered now in the first week of 07.
Received an order this past Friday for 700 large Year-In-View Calendars. It's a Custom Calendar with custom colors and two full color pictures. We'll be drop shipping the calendars in tubes directly to their customers around the World via US mail.
I'll try to convince both of these clients to order early next year.
Now is a good time to start thinking about that special Custom Calendar you've been thinking about for your company. Using full color images of your products, people, buildings, customers or using custom artwork, we've got a lot of time to think about and design your 2008 calendars.

The show consists of a half day for committee meetings (I'm on the Technology Committee), a full day for education events and three long days of show. We go in on Tuesday morning and leave on a red-eye on Saturday night. In between, there is much to do and see. It's a fun week and an educational week and a great networking week.
I've been going the this annual Expo since 1973. My first two years, it was in Chicago, then Dallas for 25 years and now Las Vegas for the past 6 years.
We've been talking to many of our clients recently to find out what their marketing needs for 2007 might be. This helps us at the show when we are looking for new products and ideas for them.

They are 14" long by 1-3/16" high, Imprinted vinyl with removable adhesive. Calendars are finished with gloss coating and split backs . The advertising goes in the center 2" and there is 6 months of calendar on each side. They fold easily and can fit into a #10 envelope for mailing.
People put them at the top or botttom of a monitor or on their keyboard. It makes for a very handy year at a time calendar that is always there. Of course, there are many other places that they can be put... near a phone, in a car, on the fridge, etc.

- Freshness… when are the food gifts packaged for delivery to your recipient, in the summertime or when you actually order the gift?
- Packaging… are the gifts packaged so they will arrive in perfect condition?
- Quality… is there a 100% satisfaction guarantee?
- Experience… do they know what they are doing, do they understand the business marketplace?
- Branding… can they brand your logo along with the gift?
- Stress Free Buying… Can they offer a complete ‘Turnkey’ Program?
- Longevity… after the food has been consumed, what is left to remember you by?
Some of the calendars will be put into a mailing tube for direct mailing to their customers and the rest will be hand delivered.
This is a great map for locating customers and salespeople.
A calendar sent to a customer becomes a billboard on their wall for your business for the next year.
