St. Patrick’s Day

Here we are, it’s already coming up on St Patrick’s Day! The transition from pink and red hearts to GREEN clovers. This is THE big Irish day. Why do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? We’re simply commemorating the Christianization of Ireland during the 5th century by Maewyn Succat. The Irish patron saint was actually British. According to the legend, he was sold into slavery in Ireland when he was a teenager, became religious, escaped back to England, became an ordained priest named Patrick and started converting all of the Irish Celtic pagans to Christianity. He was the one who originally introduced the Holy Trinity to the King by using the shamrock thus making it a popular symbol. The holiday marks St. Patrick’s death and has been observed as a religious holiday in Ireland for over 1500 years. Ireland only officially started celebrating the day in 1903. Since the Emerald Isle is mainly catholic and St. Patrick’s Day usually falls on Lent, it used to be a quiet and religious holiday – until the 1960s, when a law allowed pubs to open on St. Paddy’s Day. (Never call it St. Patty’s Day!) Now, the 17th of March is a moment of celebration for those of Irish descent all around the world.

Green is everywhere, people buy goodies to accessorize their outfits and every pub is decorated in green and clovers for the big crowds coming in to drink the traditional green beer. Even rivers, monuments and even ski resorts have all been turned green to commemorate the occasion. Ironically, even though everyone goes green, Patrick himself apparently preferred blue and proof can still be seen on old Irish flags. During the 1798 Irish Rebellion, wearing the clover and the color green became a symbol of nationalism – and it stuck.

This is also a great time of year to take advantage of our fun and affordable Promotional Products for your company or personal party as giveaways or commemorative items. Some of our fun and most popular items are silicon wristbands, Can Koolers, stadium cups, lanyards, or Coasters to put under the many beverages that will be consumed. Don’t forget to decorate the place with printed inflatable balloons.

Fall Coats

Fashionable Coats

Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st, but as we woke up the last couple of mornings and felt the crisp air, it was a clear reminder of how fast it’s approaching – it’s time to start thinking about coats. Although we are still able to enjoy the warm afternoons, the evenings and mornings are already dropping into the freezing temperature ranges. Don’t fret though, with our fast turnaround time, you can still get your stylish cold weather gear in plenty of time!

We have many varieties of coats to choose from – whether outside brings a mild chill or the extreme cold. You can also make your choice based on style and functionality. The ideal winter coat is made to keep you warm, easy to layer under, easy to move in, not too bulky and, ideally, something that you don’t feel like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Stay Puft while wearing it. Stay trendy with a double-breasted, mid-length, classic coat or add style and functionality with one of our parkas. Already have all of the basics? Then update your coat closet with classic fall colors like red, deep purple, and dark blues.

Here are a few tips on the top Coat Trends:
3-in-1 Coat – For versatility with the changing temperatures, go for the 3-in-1 coat that gives you the ability to add or remove a special liner and jacket shell. Layer them all together or wear them as individual pieces as the weather dictates.
High Collar – If you don’t like to wear scarves, a high-collar coat is the one for you! It’s an absolute life saver during the bitter winter months.
Hooded Wool Coat – Hooded coats are always great for extra protection against the cold. Pick a nice wool coat in a trendy color to protect yourself against the harshest cold temperatures.
Pea Coats – Slightly shorter and boxier than most coats, they are great for everyday wear and can be worn to work and social functions seamlessly and fashionably.
Trench Coats – This classic coat never goes out of style. Traditionally longer and belted, this coat can be worn to school, work, parties, etc. Single or double-breasted, it’s functional and fashionable.
Winter Parkas – Super warm and sporty, the parka is always a great choice. To keep a modern look, pick one that has a cinched waist to avoid the puffed up look. As the climate changes, so can the need…get one with a detachable hood or fur trim to keep you warm in the harshest temperatures and be removed when it gets warmer.

Regardless of the coat you choose, add your company logo, personalize it with a monogram, or just show off your unique style! Check out all of our varieties or come by Signet today to choose the right look for you! Not ready for the winter coat just yet? You can also choose from an assortment of fleeces, vests, and lightweight jackets. Whatever the need – we will find the one that works for you.

Applique

An applique is a design that is created by applying a smaller piece of fabric to a surface pattern that is used to decorate a garment or product. It is attached by using a satin stitch overlapping the edge of the material to ensure stability and a neat clean edge.

Make your company logo, favorite design, or personal monogram stand out from the rest by using the different features of fabric, a variety of our metallic and other specialty threads (we even have glow-in-the dark), or even combining your emblem with an applique.

Visit us to check out the many possibilities – Our extremely talented and creative embroidery department would love to help you create the look that you’ve been searching for to make your everyday apparel, gifts, or company basics stand out from the rest – Let’s get creative together!

National Family Reunion Month is July

July is quickly approaching and as many of us know, it is National Family Reunion month, an opportunity to celebrate family! Design inexpensive reunion gifts & favors for your next upcoming gathering. Whether you are celebrating a 10 year class reunion or your annual family get-together, personalized reunion favors and gifts are a great way to make memories of the event last forever.

Often times, family members lead such different, busy lives, they rarely have time to talk about recent happenings in each other’s lives. This is why many families often hold annual family reunions, where the whole family comes together for picnics, dinner parties, barbecues, and more. Make this event extra special by having personalized reunion gifts such as t-shirts, beer mugs, sporty baseball caps or custom tote bags that can all be personalized with your family name, keeping the group united and proud of their bloodline. These family reunion favors are certain to be a keepsake passed down generation to generation in memory of the fun family reunions held. Here at Signet, our expert graphic design team and skilled printers work diligently to insure your custom printed reunion items come out just as you wish.

Check out our reunion designs ready to be personalized using our ‘DESIGN YOUR OWN’ tool!

Show Your Patriotism This Memorial Day 2015

Monday May 25th is Memorial Day 2015. This is a time of year where many friends and families come together in remembrance for those who have died in service of your great nation, the United States of America. What better time to pay respect to our fallen heroes and show your Patriotism by stocking up on your USA gear.Memorial Day 2015

Originally called ‘Decoration Day’, Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on May 5th, 1868 by General Logan (national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic) “The 30th of may 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.” This date was specifically chosen as it was separate from any particular battle with the intent to honor all American who died fighting in any war. Memorial Day is now officially observed as a Federal Holiday on the last Monday in May each year.

Contact us at Signet Screen Printing and Embroidery to stock up on your patriotic gear this Memorial Day 2015. Whether you are attending a BBQ, visiting family and friends or using the long weekend to tour one of our many great National site, wear your patriotism in your sleeve, literally! and pay respect to the many fallen heroes that fought for our freedom and the service members that continue to preserve our freedom.SUNAFFFASUNUSASP
