Brighten Up Your Brand With the Pantone Color of the Year

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

The colors red, blue and black have been the go-to colors of promotional products for, well frankly, far too long.

Increasingly, business are shaking off the old stodgy design colors and bright, modern and punchy colors are making their way into corporate branding.

This year, Pantone, the experts in all things color, has designated “Radiant Orchid”…essentially a light purple hue…as their color of the year for 2014. Last year Emerald Green was the “It” color in fashion and design trends, and before that Tangerine Orange was the darling color of the moment.

So knowing that Radiant Orchid, and all things purple are soon to be in vogue, we know from past years that marketing products are soon to follow.

How can you incorporate purple in your brands marketing?

Purple is created by the blending of Red and Blue, two strong colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. This makes it a great color for any company or organization that wants to relay a sense of balance and equality.

Purple also represents peace of mind, and is a calming color, which makes it a great for outreach campaigns that want to reassure or soothe.

Purple is also known as a royal color, and can be an indicator of wealth, position and prestige, which makes it a natural selection for finance and investment marketing campaigns.

There are hundreds of items that currently come in brilliant shades of purple, and almost any logo converted to black or white will make a strong and lasting impression.

 

 

 

 

Walking for a Cause – PrintGlobe Supports American Fountation for Suicide Prevention

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

*PG Team Featured Blogger – Brigid Borcik (Customer Service Representative)*

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide.  With more than 38,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. alone (one life every 13.7 minutes as of 2010 making this the tenth leading cause of death in the US) and over one million worldwide (one life every 40 seconds), the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.  The stigma of suicide makes this a “taboo” subject though and makes it that much more difficult to raise awareness and much needed funds.  Suicide IS a preventable issue however and should not be a “dirty” word.  Suicide is a caused by serious mental illness and has also been shown to be genetic.  More facts and figures can be found at http://www.afsp.org/understanding-suicide/facts-and-figures

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

On November 19, 2007 I lost my only brother Emmett to suicide.  He left behind a daughter, granddaughter, two sisters and a father.  Needless to say this was a devastating loss to my family.  At first I didn’t know where to turn or how to find help to cope with this loss until I found the local chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).  Since the day I found them, I vowed that I would volunteer with them to keep his name alive as well as two cousins and the other four lives I have personally lost to suicide in my life.  I refuse to be “quiet” about suicide or not talk about my brother, my cousins or my friends that I have lost, no matter how uncomfortable it may make someone feel.  They deserve to be kept alive in our memories for it was the pain and desperation they felt that took their lives.  They weren’t themselves when they took their lives and if they had been they wouldn’t have done it.  Not a single day goes by that I don’t think of them so I will spend every single day fighting for them as well as myself with my own mental health issues and struggles for they go hand in hand.I started by becoming an advocate which involved me emailing my local and state government representatives regarding laws and bills that needed attention for those suffering from mental health issues.  I volunteered every year for the Out of the Darkness Walk held at the State Capital grounds by raising money for education, research and prevention.  I physically volunteered at the walks by doing anything I could and by doing so I have made many friends and contacts by doing this.  There are so many people who have been touched by suicide – a disease that can be prevented.  Since making these contacts I was subsequently asked to join the Board of the AFSP – Central Texas Chapter this year and I am currently in charge of social media for the group.

PrintGlobe was gracious, loving and supportive enough to back two of its employees who have lost their only brothers for the 2013 Out of the Darkness walk at the State Capital.  When we approached Dan Steinborn the owner of the company, he immediately, without any hesitation, came up with a silver level sponsorship for the event and even volunteered his band Blazin’ Kane to play during the event.  He also donated team shirts for us all to wear during the walk!  We were overwhelmed with the support from him as well as the other employees of the company who stepped up financially and physically by being there to support us.  A total of 12 employees became the PrintGlobe Trotters and have (so far) raised $2000.  I am hoping they will continue to raise money through the end of the year because it every single penny counts through December 31.

PrintGlobe joins the Race for the Cure

Thursday, November 13th, 2008


PrintGlobe was recently amongst the more than 20,000 participants in the 11th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Wearing custom t-shirts made specifically for the event, the “Globe Checkers” showed their support while handing out personalized pink bubble pens to participants of the race.

PrintGlobe team leader & race captain, Carey Simmons was thrilled to participate in the cause stating, “We were really anxious to hand out our bubble pens and see everyone excited to get them. Everyone knows someone that has been affected, directly or indirectly with breast cancer.”

On Sunday, November 2nd the “sea of pink” hit the streets of Austin at 8 am to take part in the Race for the Cure, doing their part to raise awareness for breast cancer. Seventy-five percent of proceeds and donations from the race will go toward treating and educating individuals with breast cancer in Austin. The remaining profits will go to Komen National to fund breast cancer research and community outreach programs.

PrintGlobe was proud to be a part of this great cause and hopes to participate again next year to keep reminding you to “check your globes!”
