With a rise in COVID-19 cases across the nation, we are all yearning for something to do (other than being cooped up in our houses!). Today is as good a day as ever to just go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature- and take your mind off the horrors of 2020.
Here are our must-have items to celebrate Take A Hike Day:
This week they claim that we are gaining an hour of daylight, but I’m not too sure about that. I mean, the sun starts setting around 4:00pm!
The must-have items that your employees and customers would appreciate this time of year are Maglite flashlights. If they’re heading to their car in the dark at 5:00pm, they’ll need some help to find their way there!
Promotional Maglites (Maglights is a common misspelling) will display your company logo for a very long time. But did you know that their famous lifetime limited warranty was just reduced to 10 years? I wouldn’t worry about the quality of this famous flashlight. I think that the company is just streamlining its cost of production and maintenance, to keep up with the competition. If a Maglite used to last a lifetime, it will probably continue to do so.
Here is part of the text from the Maglite website today:
When you need a rugged USA-made flashlight, you normally choose Maglite Flashlights. But here’s a new reason to choose America’s favorite torch:
Choose the NEW Maglite® with the Red Light bulb. Why red?
Red light is easier on the eyes than white light.
Red light is easier on the eyes than any other color, especially blue.
Red lighting is used in confined spaces like airline cockpits, boats, and truck cabins. The visual spectrum of light goes from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. As we go from red to violet, the “energy” and frequency of the light increases. The higher the energy and frequency, the more disturbing it is to the eyes. I once had a car with red lights instead of blue ones in the dash. I noticed how pleasant the red lighting was.
Here is the newest wavelength technology from Maglite®…
2 New Promotional Maglights (Maglites®) have smooth barrels. Why? to make your full color logo look great! The original K3A Solitaire and the M2A Mini Maglite® are now available with an optional “smooth finish” barrel. Anthony Maglica is always coming up with new ideas. This keeps the company fresh and exciting. The aluminum barrels are still available with the knurled finish, for the purists. Promotional Maglites® are sure to stay on the leading edge of the flashlight industry as long as Anthony Maglica provides vision for this American-Made company.
The new Halcyon Collapsible Engraved Flashlights will be your best friend in a power outage. When the electricity goes out, just lift the top of this lantern and it turns on. Adjust the brightness by sliding the top up or down. The folding steel handles allow you to hang it, or you can place it on a table. The COB bulb is bright, and the design gives you brilliant light for the whole room, tent, or camper. The entire surface is coated with the new rubbery finish, to prevent slippage.
So your boss wants you to check into getting some Maglites® for the next safety awards meeting. He wants each Maglite engraved with the company logo, and “2018 Safety Award”.
Here are the 7 questions he wants you to find answers to….
Can we have them by the end of next month?
Are they available in our corporate colors of green and white?
Can I see a virtual proof before we order?
Can I see an actual sample of the flashlight laser engraved with our imprint, before they are put into production?
Can we stay within our budget?
What kind of art file is needed for the imprint? What is vector art?
Can we open an account, and have Net60 terms?
You can find the answers to all these questions by going online. Find a reputable vendor, and talk to him, to see if he can deliver what you want. If you have any doubts, just call the next vendor in line. The internet is a great place to solve problems like this. What did we do 40 years ago, without the internet? You might not have been able to get these 7 questions answered.
