Aprons, Aprons, and more Aprons…the creative advertising billboard

4 03 2011

Aprons, Aprons, and more Aprons…We sell Aprons! Does that come as a surprise to you? Of course it doesn’t. You read the name of the company. You see the title of this blog entry. But, really, we sell lots of aprons: Twill, Polyester, Non-woven disposable. Aprons that tie in the back, under the arm (these are officially called Cobbler Smocks), and aprons with no-ties. Velcro your way to comfort. No kidding.

Who can you sell these to, you wonder? The imprints we see are all over the place. Nascar. Really. We had a re-order with the Nascar official imprint for years. Corporations which have no connection to cooking. Small businesses. Of course, we do get the Wine and Food imprints – that makes sense. But just because your customer doesn’t focus on eating or drinking doesn’t mean they might not have an interest in an apron promotion. Can’t hurt to find out.

Aprons can make a terrific promotion because people do get weary of t-shirts. Plus, if you have a substantial following by women, they may actually wear the apron while they are home working. In the kitchen. In the yard. In the… well, you get my idea.

If you’re of the old-fashioned thinking that aprons are only for food or wine imprints, shake your mindset out of the past. Literally, shake your head hard. Take out your note pad. Now. Start writing down ideas of your customer base who could use aprons. Who have a promotion in which they want a wearable but they want something a little different. Then gander through our catalog. Call your Sales Advisor, and ask them what kinds of different prints we have done that might make an interesting yet different apron.

For starters, we have a checkerboard pattern fabric that can used with any of our items. Bib apron, waist apron, colored print on top of the checkerboard. Imagine it, and we will create an E-proof for you to see with your idea. At no charge. We also have a cowprint stock pattern with which you can do the same thing. Get creative on your end and let us help you create. Once you make that list of customers, give us a call and lets see what kind of idea book we can create. Call Pam Pennington 800-467-1996 x127, our National Sales Manager. She will help you to come up with innovative ideas.

For further ideas, you can print the bottom half of the apron. Or the bottom right side. Or the whole thing. The options are out there for you to make this seemingly standard item an eye-catching promotion. Take a look at this one. Brown apron on the bottom left. Nice, huh? More importantly, eye-catching and creative.

Want some samples to play with ? Email us and ask for 2-3 of our best styles – with your freight number, its free – Your job is to sell – ours is to make you look good. Let’s create.

Let’s talk table display covers to grow your business…

2 03 2011

Let’s talk table display covers
If you as a distributor have not educated yourself on imprinted table display covers, let’s talk sales. This category of products has grown the most for Aprons, Etc., than any other product in the last several years. Why? Think about the possible uses in imprinted tablecloths. Flat, fitted, convertible (from 6 ft to 8 ft), plastic disposable, non-woven disposable – the options are here for your customers.

Sampling Events – Your customer has a sampling and tasting event at grocery stores, wine shops, cafes, or markets. The table cover has a digital front panel imprint of delectable cheese and wine. Or a scene from the coast of a couple enjoying the featured product . Or the logo of a well-known company. Imagine the possibilities among your customers who sell food and drink products. We see these logos coming in daily. Don’t let your slice of the pie disappear.

College Events – Our volume of school and university logos continues to grow. Re-usable imprinted table covers are increasing for the discerning school buyer who sees an opportunity to brand their school in a reusable tablecover. 1-color screen prints to multi-color dye sublimation imprinting brings all sorts of possibilities to your university buyer. Do they want to use the tablecloths to decorate an alumni gathering? To establish presence at a recruiting event? To stand out at a career fair? To place a table of information at a Fraternity and Sorority event? The possibilities at your university and college customer are practically endless. And I don’t say that flippantly. Don’t overlook the many possible buyers within your local university – alumni department, student recruiting, athletic events – and more.

Conferences – Imprinted table covers have become a must for corporations who want their brand prominently displayed to the conference attendees. The cover establishes a visual connection to the leaders and creates a cohesive and classy look which pulls conference rooms together and keeps the leaders front and center.

Trade Shows – I don’t think there is anything I can suggest about imprinted table covers for trade shows that you don’t recognize yourself. Part of the booth packaging, the table cover is a must for those who want to avoid the high rental fees which accompanies plain tablecovers provided by the trade show hall. Help your customer understand the value behind having a cover with their own logo, and the re-usability of this item.

Those are just a few ideas. We have a low 1-piece minimum (couldn’t get much lower) for a digitally imprinted cover. Talk to your customer about other possibilities, because as you know, more than one will get a lower cost for you and your customer.

The last point I will make here is the re-order possibilities. Of our entire product line, the re-orders on tablecovers are the highest by far of any product we manufacture and sell. Aren’t re-orders fun? Aren’t they easier? Don’t you enjoy the commission from an order with less work? Sell tablecovers. Educate yourself. Splurge on a sample with swatches of color possibilities. This is really a no-brainer and has the possibility of impacting your sales in a very positive way.

Okay – One more thing – your customer can also opt for runners. If they change their logo often, and prefer to have a smaller item or they want the look of a different color cover underneath the runner, that is also a great option. Explore our website and come up with your own list of possible customers in your database. We’re here to help.
