Was it a ruff week? Not for us.

Last week, we had a very special visitor in our office, Laddie. He’s a 6-month-old Cocker Spaniel puppy. His owner, our team member, Mary, brought him in for a day filled with fun and shenanigans.

We shamelessly peddled our promotional goods to Laddie, who ate them right up. He LOVED his new (stress) ball. Whenever Laddie gets excited, he wiggles his butt like crazy. Also, when he’s excited, he has to hold something in his mouth. It’s the weirdest, cutest habit ever. Luckily, he had his new, favorite ball with him.


Our staff put the ball to even better use, and he had a blast playing fetch in our hall.


Well, he was pretty exhausted from all the fun and needed some water. He really went for it, too, drinking it all the way to the very bottom.

After all that craziness and excitement, we thought we’d just have ourselves a sit and look out the window. Sometimes, we enjoy the simpler things in life. (1)

Dimensional Marketing offers high quality branded merchandise. We have some great stuff here, just ask Laddie! We loved having him and can’t wait for our next Puppy Day!

The Essentials: Her Travel Apparel

The Essentials: Her Travel Apparel 

From our friends at Cutter & Buck..

One of the allures of travel is experiencing new vistas and new activities. But those discoveries can also come with cramped airplane seats, long car rides and unfamiliar weather patterns.

Comfort begins by making sure you have what you need for the entire journey. Start by choosing clothing that fits well, moves with you and layers easily. Make sure every piece can do double duty with other items you’re packing, and choose mostly wrinkle-resistant fabrics.

The right clothes go a long way toward making every part of travel more comfortable.  Here’s where to start:




Travel light around town or on the trail, while stashing your key card, credit card and cash in the zippered arm pocket. The mock neck provides a bit of extra protection from the elements, while moisture-wicking fabric adds comfort to vacation recreation.




A bit of spandex creates a moves-with-you fabric, while a pull-on waistband adds to the ultimate comfort of these versatile pants. They come in black to match all your tops. The invisible zip pockets maintains flattering lines, while UPF 50+ fabric provides excellent UV protection.


Sandpoint jacket


A must-have for the well-organized traveler, this quilted jacket zips into its own pocket, keeping your carry-on or daypack easy to navigate.  This wind- and water-resistant layer has knit accent pieces for additional comfort.  Check out the Sandpoint Vest too.




When it’s too warm for a jacket but too cool for a sweatshirt, get the best of both worlds with the Stealth. This heathered full-zip allows you to keep your core cozy with weather resistant quilt panels, and keep your arms free and mobile with moisture-wicking knit jersey


Lakemont Cardigan


Perfect for alfresco or beachfront dinners, this chic and classic cardigan fits the bill when evening temperatures call for a cover-up to your sleeveless dress or top. Also available in a V-neck sweater.


shoreline colorblock_ladies


Ultra-flattering colorblock detailing will soon make this your favorite mid-weight jacket.  This jacket has cozy fleece lining and a zipper for easy layering.


Rally Split neck


This is not your basic tee.  Modern details include split-neck design, center seam, and unfinished cuffs and hem, while 100% cotton recalls our favorite traditional t-shirts.


Clare Polo


Take advantage of fine weather by baring your arms. Tonal microstripes add a nice touch to wrinkle-resistant, high-UPF fabric.




Hiking near waterfalls or heading out on the boat? This packable jacket will keep you comfortable with its wind- and wind-resistant fabric and classic styling. The mock neck conceals a hood in case of sudden showers.




A classic button-down shirt is an essential wardrobe piece, even when traveling. This versatile shirt can be dressed up with slacks or worn casually open over a tank top.

Why Your Company Should Think Pink This October

October is upon us, and that means it’s time to THINK PINK! Right now, it’s more important than ever to show support. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is everywhere, and awareness of the disease is at an all-time high. However, research still has a long way to go.

  • In the United States today, 110 women die every day from breast cancer. That number is barely down from 119 each day in 1991.
  • 1 out of every 8 women will develop breast cancer in her life.
  • Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death in women (second only to lung cancer).

Despite all of the pink ribbon hype every October, breast cancer remains a serious problem. The public has very positive feelings about supporting this cause, but they’re more scrutinizing than ever. It’s not enough to just plaster pink everywhere. It’s important to back it up with meaningful action. Make sure any donations are going to a responsible organization.

Show your support by going pink!

If your company has any events in October, there are countless promotional products that look good in pink! Hand out tote bags, water bottles, or pins for participants to remember you by. Give away pens, shirts, or magnets to clients and employees. They’ll take these pink items with them out into the world, showing everyone how charitable and socially conscious your company is.

We’re here for all of your pink promotional needs! For any breast cancer awareness items sold through October, Dimensional Marketing will donate a portion of the proceeds to the cause.

Trend Watch: Gift Season 2018

Ready to see what’s new and what’s hot for the holidays and all those year-end gift occasions? You’ve come to the right place.

Trend Watch: Gift Season 2018
It may be summer, but it’s time to kick off holiday and year-end gift giving.

Don’t panic – you’re in good hands this year. Behind the scenes, we’ve been working hard to bring you the best product mix for every year-end gifting occasion. From killer client gifts, to stellar employee anniversary awards, it’s our job to find you a gift that’s just right for your brand.

In August, we introduced tons of new products and apparel pieces inspired by the latest trends and designs you’ll be seeing online and in stores. So as we charge into the back half of the year, here’s a look at the trends you need to know to make this the best gift season yet.

1. Trend: Scoring Big Points With Retail Brands

Are you looking to make a big splash with your heavy-hitter clients this year? It’s time to consider the extra value that comes with a gift from a well-known retail brand such as Cutter & Buck or Wenger. These established brands offer not only stylish, quality products, but also have a perceived (and well-deserved) value that goes a long way when you’re trying to impress a client and show them how much their business means to your organization. Spending a little more will score some big points. Click on the images for product details.

2. Trend: Adding A Special Touch With Custom Labels

We’ve introduced a select group of apparel styles that allow you to feature your logo or special message on a panel inside the neck or waistline. It’s your brand, all the way down to the label.

This is a big opportunity to add a special touch to your apparel. You can simply add your logo to create a custom collection, or you can use these branding locations for recognizing special occasions and commemorating milestones such as work anniversaries.

Along with Trimark’s low minimum order quantities, creating a custom collection or adding a special message is easier and more affordable than ever. Click on the image for more details.

3. Trend: Wowing With Tech-Integration

There’s a hot new trend that’s delivering a shot of excitement to traditional promotional products like bags and drinkware. Tech features, like charging ports and Bluetooth speakers are being added to products to increase the fun and deliver more function and convenience. The Zoom Node Wireless Charging Backpack has a zippered side pocket with a built-in wireless charger. Simply throw your phone in the pocket and it will charge while you’re sitting in a meeting or running to make that plane connection.

Taking your tunes on the go with integrated Bluetooth speakers is another key trend. The Soundwave Vacuum Insulated Bottle has a Bluetooth speaker built in to the lid, while the Blare Backpack has a removable speaker that lights up when in use. Click on the images for product details.

4. Trend: Retail-Inspired, High-Performance Insulated Drinkware

In retail, high-performance insulated drinkware hotter than ever. From campus to the boardroom – it’s everywhere.

Our most popular tumblers, those with copper vacuum insulation, are home run gifts for any brand. What makes them so universally-loved? First, they perform – keeping beverages hot for up to 12 hours and cold up to 48 hours. Second, they’re practical. They’re meant to be used every day.

The popular Hugo Tumbler is an all-time gift favorite. It’s available at a great price and comes in several sizes and tons of vibrant colors. For something a little different, check out the trendy new Rover Insulated Camp Mug or the Twist Leak Proof Tumbler. Both are retail-inspired and nail the sweet spot between fun and functional. Click on the images for product details.

5. Trend: Standing Out With Packaging and Presentation

Someone wise once said that presentation is everything. Retail packaging options and gift setsoffer more than a way to recognize a special occasion or important relationship – they’re also an opportunity to showcase your brand in a whole new way.

This couldn’t be easier. You can take your gift to another level by simply adding a gift box to our on-trend copper vacuum insulated drinkware pieces. This quick upgrade turns a great gift into something really memorable. We also have retail-style gift packaging options for blankets and umbrellas, both favorite holiday gifts.

The mighty tote bag is another easy way to add a special touch to a gift.  Use totes – with or without a logo – to package drinkware, stationery or even gifts from other places. For PCNA items, we’ll even do the insertion for free! Our metallic totes are nice festive packages for spreading cheer. Click on the images for product details.

The Bottom Line

A gift says a lot about your brand and it needs to send the right message. That’s why we’re here to help you find the perfect piece that’s completely you.
