The 2004 data from the National Crime Prevention Council estimates that there are 21.1 violent crime incidents per 1,000 people and 4.3 assault incidents per 1,000 people in the United States each year. With the proper preparedness and protection, however, many of these crimes can be prevented!

We were fortunate to be sponsors for the promotional products industry’s most disruptive educational event, skucon. And, because patches are on fire in both the retail and promotional markets we thought it fitting that custom adhesive patches be our contribution to the skucon swag bag. EMT and commonsku created five different patches with the help of the talented Tee Hamilton. These patches are representative of the different functions needed to run a successful business operation.

Did you attend skucon? If so, which patch did you snag? If not, take a look at the photo. Which one fits you?

For your playlist: “I will survive” – Gloria Gaynor



What people say, you see. Conversations become pictures and movies in your mind. You are able to articulate and convey brand message differently than most.

You are responsible for ensuring that not only do people know about the pie, but that they feel like they can’t live without having a piece of it. You believe that your company has the best story to tell and are charged with making sure this story is heard by the greatest number of people in the shortest amount of time. A marketer is Cupid personified, armed with a bag full of your-company-branded arrows, you head into the world with the goal of helping people fall in love.

For your playlist: “Papas Got a Brand New Bag” – James Brown



Ah, the closers! You arrive on the scene fueled by equal amounts of coffee and ambition. The entrepreneurs dreamed it up, the creatives brought it to life, the marketers have told the world about it, and now you get to head in to seal up the deal! Your feature-benefit game is strong and you can overcome the objections of the masses before people even have time to object.

CASE STUDY: Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor Crest

Published on: December 8, 2016


The Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor recognizes Vikings legendary veteran players for their contributions to the team both on and off the field.  EMT had the extreme privilege of creating the crest that adorns this year’s blazer. These blazers were presented in the Vikings new stadium.  An article on the Vikings website features videos and shares some of the history that led these greats to this moment in time.

To the average Joe this might look like just another jacket. And really, it is. However add these gold crests, and these simple purple jackets now symbolize a lifetime of achievement. A simple piece of clothing acts not only as a tangible token of the team’s appreciation for their part in the Minnesota Vikings story, but held within each thread are the memories of two-a-day practices, and hall of fame worthy plays as well as never-ending friendships and legacies that will not soon be forgotten.

Billboards are great for a moment, a YouTube video or post on social media is good when the power is on and the Internet connection is strong, and a pen is great until the ink runs dry. However, the look on the faces of these football legends when upon receiving their new wearable trophy says more than words ever really can or will. The thought that a simple embroidered crest could encapsulate so many memories and provoke so much emotion? Ah, yes. THAT is the power of promo!

Beyond the Girl Scout: Making the Case for Embroidered Patches as the Perfect Promo

Categories: Patches

Published on: November 15, 2016


In an article recently featured on PPAI’s social media sites, Cassandra Report stated that embroidered patches are THE accessory at the moment, stating that “Just as enamel pins are having a fashion moment, embroidered patches too, are enjoying widespread adoption among the style-conscious. As consumers shy away from overt branding, patches lend an easy way to infuse one’s wardrobe with a distinct personal brand”

So, according to Cassandra – pins and patches are winning. Just who is this Cassandra Report? Only the leading ongoing study of emerging trends, two decades strong.

Beyond current fashion, patches have had influence in the world for thousands of years Originally stitched by hand, colored thread was woven into designs and used to mark clothing and fabrics of dignitaries, elected officials, and clergy. In 2016, patches are more prominent than ever – being used by everyone from Military, Motorcycle Clubs and Girl Scout Troops to fashion forward clothing shops, music festivals, businesses and design firms, and my personal favorite – entire online shops dedicated to adult merit badges (Yes. This is a real thing!)

Before you choose a patch for your next promotion, you should know that not all patches are created equally. Even if the embroidery is done on the same exact brand of machine, the quality of the finished product relies almost entirely on the quality of your digitized (or .dst) file. Most often, the supplier you work with digitizes your file for you. The level of attention they give to this part of the process can mean the difference between your clients happiness and utter disappointment. Choose your supplier carefully!

When it comes to the patches themselves, you have a number of options to choose from. The right patch for you and your client will depend on what their artwork looks like and what message you are trying to send. If you want the more traditional look, you can go for an embroidered patch, but if your logo has small details you might want to try a PinPointe Patch. The basic structure is the same, but an advanced method allows for the finished product to be nearly photo realistic. Should you want an actual photo, there is also a solution for that. This would be done on a sublimated patch. In this case the patch itself is sewn, but your logo or image is dyed into the fabric rather than stitched.  

At the end of the day, patches are both trendy and timeless. They are the perfect product to bring awareness to your cause or promote your brand’s message. If you do it right, you can even have a little fun in the process.

Published on: November 2, 2015

Purpose: Promote your business as potential clients enjoy a soothing drink from their new liquid pourer. This product is a bartender’s best friend and allows for the smooth, continuous flow of spirits from the bottle. This allows for speed and consistency when making drinks or for easier access and perfect pours from home.

Market: Beverage products

Objective: Increase holiday sales, promote brand loyalty

Strategy: Competition is high in the liquor business as there are many new brands and flavors created every year. In order to excel, businesses need to stand out among all the competitors and present the consumer with an original idea. As part of a strategy to increase sales during the holiday season, a small liquor company decided to give away a free liquor pourer with the purchase of any 750mL bottle.

Results: The liquid pourer was a huge success. The company sold 18% more large 750mL bottles of liquor than any previous year and the number of returning customers also increased over the following months.

Case Study: Wine Bottle Stopper

Purpose: The bottle stopper makes for a fun promotional gift that anyone can use. Place the stopper in any open beverage bottle to preserve freshness and promote your company.

Market: Beverage products

Objective: To increase sales and customer satisfaction

Strategy: As a part of their 50th anniversary celebration, a local Oregon winery decided to host a wine tasting event. They wanted their customers to have something special as reminder of their brand long after the wine was gone. To accomplish this, every person who bought a bottle of wine received a free bottle stopper.

Results: The celebration went off without a hitch with nearly 800 people in attendance. Customers enjoyed the bottle stopper and were reminded of the winery when they used it. This was seen in an 8% increase in sales over the next few months as well as an expansion in social media interest.
