Increased jobs for Americans
Up-close quality control
Less transportation & fuel costs
So today, on National Manufacturing Day, don’t forget to support our local companies and workers and buy products made in the USA.
Have you been perusing Pinterest over the weekend, looking for the perfect cocktail recipes to make for your family, friends, and coworkers tonight? Or will you stick with something simple and easy like champagne or wine? Either way, don’t be an innocent bystander as you watch someone fumble with a low-quality corkscrew at the party tonight. Make it easy for everyone to ring in the new year by bringing your favorite corkscrew.
Are you thinking about giving your employees a safety award for having no accidents in 12 months? If you want to use engraved Maglites, here are 5 valuable suggestions:
Plan ahead. Maglite engraving usually takes 1 or 2 weeks. It can be done faster, if you have a short deadline.
Find your best version of your company logo. Vector art is needed for a superior job of engraving. A hi resolution jpg will work, but the promotional product distributor needs to convert it to vector art, the language of laser machines.
Pick a reputable on-line Maglite representative, and one who communicates well with you.
Choose a Maglite that is the right size for your employees. The biggest one holds 4 D cells. The smallest one holds one AAA cell.
Give out your engraved Maglite safety awards at a dinner, or a special meeting. That makes the gift seem more valuable, and memorable.

This could yield as much as 2 million barrels of oil a day. That’s more than the output of the entire Gulf of Mexico. EOG Resources was the first company to use horizontal drilling to obtain shale oil. This info was obtained from AP Energy Writer, Jonathan Fahey, Feb. 10, 2011.
