Solid or white is all right, but nothing says summer like the groovy swirl of custom tie-dye t-shirts! We’re excited to roll out this long-awaited new option for your community event, family reunion or any other funky summer promotion you might have up your sleeve!
One of my favorite parts of summer is seeing live music in the parks and attending local festivals. Amp up attention before these lighthearted summer events with eye-catching tie dye tees that work like walking billboards! Attendees at community fundraisers or charity events will be clamoring to get their hands on these custom logo tees to show their support for your cause.
Got a crazy, fun-loving family? Here’s the perfect getup for your family picnic or reunion! Everything is more fun with tie dye, from lawn games to getting your cheeks pinched by Great Aunt Edna. Heavyweight cotton is sturdy and high quality so you’ll have a wearable reminder of your family bash that really lasts.
Promotional tie dye t-shirts are available in pastel, fluorescent and classic shades.
Shirts are just the beginning! Planning is a breeze with convenient shops for fundraising event promotional products, custom family reunion items and summer giveaways for all things fun under the sun!

My last visit to Hong Kong in mid-April landed in the aftermath of an earthquake that measured 6.9 on the Richter Scale and rocked the Southern Qinghai Province of China. Volunteers from local churches, schools and other organizations were on the streets seeking donations to help those affected by the disaster.
Amidst the hustle-and-bustle, I came across a group of young people who were doing their part to help, selling UNICEF “Little Angel” dolls. Of course, the “Little Angels” caught my eye.
The doll comes with a series of movable felt appliqués, with affectionate phrases imprinted on them. It’s a clever use of promotional products for fund-raising – and a perfect fund-raising tool for the cause.

Parental involvement is a pretty strong influence in the quality of a child’s education. No matter what level of education a child is in, studies have shown that the more involved and aware the parents are, the more successful the child is.
There are many sources available online that provide ideas, such as Education World’s Parent Involvement in Schools article. Providing parents with an opportunity to share ideas for fundraising and school events, or a forum to meet other parents and discuss concerns can make them feel like they are actively participating in their child’s future and education.
4imprint has published a newsletter on this very topic, with some practical ideas on involving parents in school activities.

I was in Indianapolis this weekend for the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation (AA&MDSIF) Patient & Family Conference. AA&MDSIF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting Bone Marrow Failure Diseases like Aplastic Anemia, MDS and PNH through patient support and research.
Given that this is a topic near and dear to my heart (full disclosure alert – I’m on the Board of Directors and our family has been personally touched by these diseases), I could go on and on about the event, the work the Foundation does, education on these little known diseases, etc. However, given that I try to keep this blog broadly focused on marketing, promotional products and creative ideas I thought I’d share this photo:
The Foundation put together the first ever ‘Hope, Steps and a Cure’ walk as part of the event, to raise awareness and to show people how they can put a walk together in their hometown. The team at the Foundation that put this whole event (and the walk specifically) together, did an oustanding job in every way and they paid attention to many, many details. One important detail was the use of color in the walk t-shirts and other promotional items/materials.
This photo doesn’t begin to do justice to how it really looked when a sea of 200 bright red t-shirts weaved their way around downtown Indy. At times it literally looked like blood flowing through the veins of the city. It drew a ton of attention and the banner at the front of the walk (which I was helping to hold when I took this shot which explains why you can’t see it!) tied it all together.
When you’re tyring to get attention, don’t forget about color. Choosing a bright color and sticking to it consistently throughout an event makes a big impression.
