Imagine your logo re-created as a field of sparkling crystals, the light glinting off of each one as your employees or customers move around, not only as walking billboards, but as shimmering ambassadors of your brand! It may not be for everyone, but many spas, restaurants, resorts, salons, and even national real-estate companies have decided to opt for ‘bling’ as part of their promotional strategy.
You may be wondering, how we decided to go from embroidery and screen printing to rhinestones, well it turns out all we needed is some prodding from some of our favorite customers. Black Duck has been preparing for one of the biggest trade shows attended by our staff for one of our many national company stores. We’re headed to the Keller Williams Realty ‘Family Reunion’ as representatives of our myredgear.com site! One of the most requested products a couple of years back was for a ‘bling shirt’. After asking around to find out just what that oft-recorded search term might mean, we decided we had to give it a try. After a successful launch, we’ve expanded to offer two colors of custom rhinestone shirts and hats, and every trade show we sell out, despite increasing our stock.
You may not think that rhinestones are for you, but you’d be surprised at the variety of rhinestones and nailheads we can offer, in everything from the classic style you see above, to matte and mettalic pieces made for high-end menswear. Yes, folks, there are ‘guystones’ out there, too.
The next time you think about decorated apparel for your copmany, expand your mind and ask about rhinestones and other applied elements- we’ve got so much more than ink and thread.
