The Pitch: Speaking of all that overeating, Evans (asi/52840) offers the Portion Plate (item #1379), which you can get for better than EQP until June 30. They have them in kid size as well, so they are perfect for day cares, school cafeterias, wellness programs and more. Check them out: http://www.evans-mfg.com/.
The Bottom Line: Eat healthy.
Fit for a Queen
The Pitch: I need this mug to enjoy my morning coffee like the royalty I am in my own little head. It’s the Bling Glimmer Mug, which holds 12 ounces and is rhinestone-encrusted. It’s from Berney-Karp Inc. (asi/40261) and it’s made in the U.S. Choose from red (my fave), pink, black and white. Custom orders are also welcome. Get it for as low as $7.99-C.

Chalk It Up
The Pitch: April flowers are blooming. The Chalkboard Vase from World Wide Lines (asi/98290) will have your sales blooming too. It’s a unique twist on such an item with its write-on, erasable surface. This is cool for all sorts of promos, including florists, farm shops, restaurants, and coffee shops, bed & breakfasts (leave one in every room with “Good morning!” written on it) and more. Check it out here: http://www.worldwideline.com/.
The Bottom Line: Coming up roses.
Will You Be The Next Wearables Top Decorator?
Wearables magazine is bringing back its popular Top Decorator competition for 2014. Sponsored by Hanes Branded Printwear (asi/59528), this competition will test the technical and creative skills of screen printers with a series of challenges throughout the year.
What do you need to know?
Each month will be its own standalone challenge. If you don’t participate one month, you are free to enter in the following month’s challenge.
Anyone can enter. The competition is open to anybody with access to screen-printing equipment.
There will be prizes. Each month’s winner will receive a prize courtesy of Hanes.
This is a competition. A combination of judges’ marks and a popular vote by Wearables readers will help determine the winner of each challenge.
The first challenge will involve printing on polyester tees for a hypothetical charity walk. If you are interested in participating, contact Wearables Editor C.J. Mittica at email@example.com.
