Guiding Today’s Youth

In our continued efforts to give back to the community some members of our staff participated in this year’s Business and Youth Expo and luncheon. Sponsored by Explore Solutions, the expo is a career exploration event that provides San Diego County high school seniors who have been selected by their principals and given the opportunity to learn from, and be inspired by, the career journeys of local professionals. Ron White and Laura Cunningham represented our design group while Caroline Morgan discussed opportunities in the field of business development. It was a great event that hopefully helps shape the future for young adults, our local workforce and our greater community.

When Online Ordering Goes Awry

While we found the photo above entertaining, we’re fairly certain the person who placed the order was not amused. We often hear that clients are tempted to order some of our products online in order to save money, but unfortunately the results are not always positive. At Custom Logos we have strict proofing guidelines in place to insure that situations such as those pictured above don’t happen. In fact, we have numerous staff members review orders and proof every order that goes through our system. It’s a painstaking process that has a cost associated with it, but it works. In order to provide this service our prices may be a little higher from time to time versus what you may find online, but we think you’ll agree that the added cost is well worth it.

Plastic Bans Expanding

Many states have banned single use plastic products including bags and straws in an effort to mitigate harmful impacts to our environment. Banning plastics in general has numerous benefits to our rivers, streams, wildlife and also relieves pressure on landfills. In line with this thinking, the San Francisco International Airport recently banned the sales of single use plastic bottles. Travelers must now carry their own drinking vessels and the airport currently offers over 100 water fountains where people are able to refill their own bottles, with more filling stations planned. In addition, several countries have also banned a variety of other plastic items. The move to reusable drinkware is upon us and the need will be growing at a rapid pace. Let us show you how we can help, and om the process do our part in preserving our great planet. Contact us today for a variety of great sustainable options.

Hawaiian Shirt Day

Like most of the events and activities we’ve done over the years, the idea for this one came from our staff. After spotting and teasing two members of our customer service team for wearing Hawaiian print shirts on the same day, a staff member brought it to our attention and our first ever Hawaiian Shirt Day was born. With prizes ranging from a surfboard to a pineapple, and everything in between, we held a contest for the best dressed and feasted on a traditional Hawaiian meal which of course included copious amounts of teri beef, katsu chicken, kalua pork and lots of macaroni salad. Good fun was had by all and a new tradition was born. Aloha.
