Get it off your Chest: Alternative Embroidery Placements

This has been one of the strangest winters in the Upper Midwest.  One week it’s -20 and the next it’s 50 and raining!  The best thing to do is wear layers.  The more layers you have, the more opportunities to add your logo.  Layer that fleece over the polo, top it off with a softshell jacket, and don’t forget your hat!  With that many layers, you might want to vary the logo placement on each item.

3 Trust Issues MIM Can Help You Overcome

Working with outside vendors can be nerve-wracking.  You have to take your hard work, your creativity, and your money, and then trust someone else to handle it.  After you have put so much effort into your marketing plan and materials, the last thing anybody wants is for something to go wrong. 

But, let’s look a little deeper at some trust issues you may have, and how MIM can help you get over them!

3 Answers to Which is better On-Demand or Inventory?

One of our clients was surprised to hear we don’t have minimums on most of our products.  That means, if you want 1 shirt, 10 business cards, or 2 decals, that’s what you will get.  This might give you the impression that we only produce on-demand orders.  Of course, sometimes you have large orders and fulfillment from inventory works best.  We can do that, too.

Regardless of what your business needs, MIM can provide a solution.  The only question you should be having now is, “Which is better?”

Here are 3 solutions to help you determine the answer.

MIM simplifies the ordering and distribution of marketing materials.  So, what are marketing materials?  Are they planned direct mail campaigns?  Maybe it’s what’s on the spreadsheet for the annual marketing budget.  Midstates Group has a very broad description of what marketing materials are.  We consider marketing material to be anything that represents your brand, logo, or organization.  Let’s look at three less-obvious examples.

Do you sell through dealers, distributors, retailers, or sales reps?
