January is National Mentoring Month.  Businesses, organizations, sports teams, schools, and clubs around the country are going the extra mile to prepare for the yearly initiative right now.  In addition to purchasing much needed supplies and advertising materials, many people are ordering custom lapel pins in anticipation for the month-long celebration.

Ignite the Fire by Recognizing the Efforts of Mentors

Pins are influential.  Once a person is seen wearing one, other people will want to know what they have to do to get their own custom memento.  This is a great way to encourage older youth to mentor younger members of their schools and communities.  It also gives area business people the opportunity to mentor college students looking to seek employment in the same type of industries that they work in every day.

Ways to Make Your Custom Lapel Pins Stand Out

There are a number of different things that you can do to make your custom lapel pins stand out to mentors and mentees.  Here are a few of the things you can do to create a unique memento to hand out this January:

  • Choose a unique size and shape. People will be drawn to your pins just by looking at them.
  • Add your favorite colors or colors that fit the nature of your business, organization, sports team, school or club. This gives the gift items a personal feel to them.
  • Include your logo, emblem, mascot or photograph in the design. Doing this is advantageous because it allows you to advertise and promote your mentorship program through your mentors and mentees.
  • Select glitter, simulated gemstones, cut outs or other adornments to decorate your pins. Each enhances the look and appeal of your custom artwork.
  • Create custom imprinted cardstock to place the pins on. This is a way for you to present and display mentor pins.

Make a difference in the life of another person.  Serve as a mentor and help them succeed at reaching their personal and professional goals.  We can help you come up with a custom lapel pin design that matters.  Contact us right away with your request.  You can submit it through our website, email it to us or call with details about your needs.  We’re here to assist you in whatever way that we can.

January 14th is Organize Your Home Day.  Home organizers and storage container stores around the country are gearing up for the occasion by offering promotions and in store events.  If you happen to be a professional organizer or the manager of a retail store that specializes in supplies that help people become better organized, you’re going to want to rise to the occasion during Organize Your Home Day.

Organize Your Home Day gives the public something to think about and strive for.  Less clutter and less fuss makes for a happier and healthier lifestyle.  People gain better control over their possessions, their homes, and their schedules by making a few changes in their lives.

Here are some ways you can prepare for Organize Your Home Day:

  • Promote your business through the creation and distribution of custom lapel pins. An attractive design featuring your logo and this year’s Organize Your Home Day date can grab people’s interest and get them wanting to know more about the products and services that you offer.  Your employees can wear pins as flare throughout the month of December for advertisement purposes.
  • Offer VIP perks for clients and customers that wear their pin to your office or store. You can offer a discount or an additional custom item like a lanyard with your logo on it to the people who wore your pin.  The two items go hand-in-hand.  In fact, a badge holder attachment is great for students and people who work for large corporations where ID cards are used to gain access to different areas of a building.
  • Encourage people to spread the word about your products and services. Word-of-mouth is a very effective way to gain new clients and customers.  People rely on the good word of others to help shape financial decisions.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways to prepare for Organize Your Home Day.  You’re likely to come up with a list of your own for January.  Think outside the box and make a long lasting impression on your clients or customers in 2014.  A little extra effort can help you increase your customer base quickly.

Correctional facility employees play an important role in communities around the world.  Corrections officers are like civil servants because they protect and serve their cities.  Correctional facilities can honor their best and brightest with a reward rich in sentimental value and visual appeal.

Here are some of the ways that lapel pins can be used by your correctional facility:

  • For identification purposes. Include the name of your penitentiary or county jail in your design.  You can also add the city or county name and the year.
  • To designate certain ranks among employees. Different colors or metal types make it easy to determine which staff members belong where.  One glance is all it takes to understand a man or woman’s role in a correction institute.  Red or gold pins belong to one department or area while blue and green or silver and bronze belong to another.
  • To signify years of service as well as accomplishments. Few awards appeal to both men and women of all ages the way that Lapel Pins Plus products do.  The fact that all items can be custom made to fit your needs and preferences is ideal.  This communicates a very important message to your employees.  It lets them know that they matter.  Simulated gemstones and different metal finishes can help set different levels of achievement apart.

As you can see, there are a number of ways that an order of pins can be used in a correctional facility setting.  Let our gallery inspire your own design.  We offer a number of different styles, including soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed, and die struck, for you to choose from.  This allows you to personalize your product in a way that draws attention to your facility and the men and women who work in it each and every day.

Mortgage brokers provide a valuable service to the public. They help their clientele find lending institutions with the type of home loan that is competitive and worth applying for. As banks continue to revise their lending policies, mortgage brokers are in high demand. They are the direct link leading to whether or not individuals and couples receive the financing that they need to purchase a home.

A few of the ways that mortgage brokers can create a buzz about their business include:

  • Creating custom lapel pins to replace traditional business cards. A rather revolutionary idea, pins have more permanence than paper. Made from quality materials, they can be worn, shared, and referred to for years. One cycle in the washing machine is all it takes to completely destroy a paper business card.
  • Host a seminar. Focus on the hottest topics that come to mind when a client is looking to secure a loan. Not only will you fill chairs, you’ll also appear even more credible than you already are.
  • Write for your local newspaper or publication. People will see what you have to offer the public because they’ll recognize your name and begin to associate your mortgage brokerage as one they can trust and approach for their home loan needs.

Mortgage brokers can increase their exposure and up their clientele by thinking outside the box and using non-traditional tools to advertise their business. If you’re looking for a way to get the word out about your mortgage brokerage and the services that it provide,s there are a number of low-cost options for you to utilize. After all, your mission is to increase your profits not increase your expenses. A boost in your advertising budget will pay off handsomely if your campaign is new and exciting.
