PrintGlobe Promotional Products New Year
The hustle and bustle of the holidays is here. Hanukkah has ended, Christmas Day is only a few days away and New Year’s is almost upon us. It’s a great time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions and planning your promotions for 2013. Here are a few tips to help you stick to your goals for the New Year.

Make Attainable Resolutions:
The first tip for successful resolutions is making sure your goals are reasonable and that you’re not setting yourself up for failure. Don’t expect to change overnight; resolutions are a way to set goals to better yourself throughout the year. Make resolutions that are challenging yet attainable and stick with them!

Formulate A Plan:
Having a plan before you start tackling your resolution is an effective way to set goals and give you a precise plan of attack. This will help you decide how exactly you will accomplish your goals and how to stay committed to your resolution all year long.

Set Goals:
If you break down your resolution into smaller achievable goals it’s easier to stick with it. Aim for smaller goals that will add up to your end objective. This will also let you achieve small milestones that you can celebrate, which is a great way to stay motivated.

Find A Resolution Partner:
It’s a great idea to make a resolution with a partner. This person will act as a support system, offering encouragement, reminders and give you help when needed. You’re not alone – friends, family, peers, co-workers can all be fantastic motivators.

Don’t Give Up:
Remember that if you have a set-back, not to give up on your resolution. Just continue with your goals and keep putting forth effort into achieving your resolution. Everyone needs a break from time to time, so don’t let a small set-back in your goals stop you from keeping to your resolution.

Don’t forget to get an early start on your promotions for the year. Make this year a big success and raise the bar for 2013. Check out our huge selection of fantastic customizable products at PrintGlobe.com and start your year off right.

One Keyring to Rule Them All!

November 20th, 2012 by Jamie Dickens

Are you questing for the right promotional item? December is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to start shopping for gifts if you haven’t already. While December is full of great Holidays, this year it also means the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. If you’re unfamiliar, The Hobbit is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings. It’s an epic fantasy-adventure film series based on J.R.R. Tolkien novels and I can’t wait to see it!

Since the movie will be out in just a few weeks, it made me wonder how to bring my two loves together, The Lord of The Rings and promotional products. That is when it hit me, keyrings! Custom keyrings are a great way to play off of the quote from the story, “One keyring to rule the all” and they make excellent holiday gifts.

Luckily, PrintGlobe carries a huge selection of customizable keyrings. What’s so great about keyrings and keychains? They’re inexpensive, practical, will get used repeatedly and are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Let’s take a look at just a few available options.

Metal keyrings are a modern, classic and highly durable choice. They can be screen printed in a variety of colors and even laser etched for a sophisticated look. Leather Keychains are available in a variety of great leather colors and are an excellent way to impress recipients.

Eco-Friendly Key Rings would definitely be a Hobbit’s first choice. They are an excellent alternative to ordinary keychains. They’re available in biodegradable corn plastic, recycled plastic, sustainable bamboo, recycled rubber and more. They’re perfect for the environmentally conscious, green business campaigns and holiday gifts.

Budget Key Chains are a fantastic low cost option for large giveaways, thank you gifts and holiday events. These keyrings may be inexpensive, but they’re a high-quality way to stretch your budget.

PrintGlobe Triples Office Space, Launches New Website in Major Growth Move

August 31st, 2012 by Jamie Dickens

AUSTIN TX — PrintGlobe, Inc., a leading online printing and graphic design company and six-time Inc. 5000/500 winner, has relocated to significantly larger headquarters and launched a major upgrade to its www.printglobe.com website, marking the largest expansion in the company’s 17 year history.

The company previously occupied 8,305 sq feet at 4115 Freidrich Lane and recently moved into its new 25,245 sq foot office space at 5812 Trade Center Drive.

According to company founder and CEO Dan Steinborn, the tripling of office space will make room for more than 40 additional employees the company expects to hire in the next several years.

“We have some of the most creative, hard working and fun folks in Austin who make PrintGlobe great. I think we have a special new space that our team deserves and will enjoy for many years to come,” says Steinborn.

In addition to the office expansion, PrintGlobe has re-launched its flagship website which the company has been working on for the past two years. The new website was built with the help of another veteran creative firm in Austin, White Lion.

Steinborn says the new website gives PrintGlobe and its customers a clean, feature-rich platform to more quickly transact complicated printing needs. “Our new website is really fresh. We have a vastly improved user interface, collaborative sharing tools to help our customers explore products with colleagues, and a much more responsive search capability.”
