People dedicate huge chunks of their lives to their work, so it's important to let them know it's appreciated. After all, companies with happier, more engaged employees tend to be more profitable – and have lower turnover – than companies with weak corporate cultures (Achievers.com). Considering the average cost of a new hire is $4,129 (SHRM.org), it's a no-brainer to invest a little extra in keeping the team happy, and recognizing work anniversaries with branded merch is a great way to do just that.

Video meetings have become the new norm. Team meetings, doctor visits and client appointments have all gone virtual, and as the moratorium on in-person events continues, the need for brand visibility in the virtual world is at its peak. One way to achieve this: high-impact branding on your team's apparel.
Choosing a highly visible imprint location puts your logo front and center, where everyone can see it. It also gives your team a professional and cohesive look for the camera. A traditional left chest logo may be cut off by the camera, but imprinting your logo somewhere higher up will attract more attention.
Market research shows it takes between five and seven impressions to be remembered. Collar and shoulder imprints generate more impressions and are more likely to be seen on video calls. I can offer these unique locations standard, so there's no added cost for that extra visibility.
Another critical element in creating brand visibility? The decoration. We recommend a high-impact method for a bold and modern look. Our eye-catching HXD can be customized with metallic, texture or backgrounds to help bring your logo to life.
Want to make your logo stand out in the video call? Contact Red Canoe Promotions Denver today to talk about options.

Sustainability is more than a trend – it's a long-term shift in thinking. With EcoSmart®, we've made it easy to find the best sustainable products and make good choices for the planet.
And what makes these promotional products better for the planet? Most often, it's the unique materials and fabrics. Each one has an interesting story about how it became part of a branded umbrella or backpack. Here's a quick primer:
1. Recycled PET
Polyethylene terephthalate, better known by the abbreviation PET, is the most common type of plastic used for water and soft drink bottles, food containers such as peanut butter jars and containers for household cleaners. It's a favorite of the food and beverage industry thanks to its strength, durability and transparency. Unfortunately, these characteristics also mean that it takes about 450 years for a plastic water bottle to decompose (Popular Science).
It's not all bad news, though. PET happens to be the most recycled plastic in the world. Used PET containers are sorted, cleaned and ground into pellets that are reintroduced to the manufacturing process that produces our EcoSmart backpacks, umbrellas and even journals that can be customized with your company logo.
Want to feel good about what you're wearing? Our eco apparel is made with a blend that includes more than 30% recycled PET, taking plastic waste and turning it into something you can feel good about wearing. But it's not just good for the planet – it's high-quality fabric that feels good and looks good, too.
Pandas love bamboo and so do we. We use it for everything from custom logo lunch boxes and cutlery to branded photo frames. Aside from being 100% biodegradable, bamboo is durable and highly renewable. Incredibly, it grows several feet in 24 hours and requires 30% less water to grow. Plus, we think it looks pretty classy too!
3. Wheat Straw
Ever wonder: After all those wheat grains are harvested to make your favorite baked goods, what becomes of the rigid stalk that's left over? Believe it or not, it ends up in some of our EcoSmart swag.
When added to the barrel of a promotional pen or a lunch box, wheat straw greatly reduces the amount of plastic in the product. And no need to worry about allergies. Since there is no wheat grain in these products, they are totally gluten-free.
4. Recycled Cotton
The Bottom LineWe believe that big change begins with small steps. Choosing eco-friendly products is your way of making a difference. For every purchase of EcoSmart products, a portion of proceeds is donated to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.

Almost a year into the pandemic, there's renewed focus on personal health and wellness. And from a corporate perspective, the benefits of a healthy workforce are well-established – lower healthcare costs, reduced absenteeism and better productivity, to name a few.
But you can't have an effective corporate wellness program without broad participation. And that's where we can help.
1. Marketing Magic
Create a catchy name for the wellness program, and a logo too. That sort of branding gets people's attention and lets them know the company truly believes in the program.
2. Cool Giveaways
Create an incentive to sign up with special giveaways. (Just make sure they reinforce a health and wellness theme – no vending machine vouchers!)
3. Awesome Prizes
Once they're signed up, rewards will help them stick with it and reach their goals. A multi-tiered approach for different levels of achievement will keep even more people involved.
