Turn off Be Like Posts

Over the weekend our news feeds began to be flooded with the "Be Like Bill". Some of our staff loved them and quickly created their own.  Others looked for an answer to rid themselves of the pesky stick people.

If you've had enough of messages like this you can get rid of Bill - scroll down to find out how

The #BelikeBill meme is taking over social media and using an annoyingly self-righteous stick figure to tell us how to behave online.
Appearing in several different guises, the cartoon has won thousands of followers and been republished all over the internet.
Although Bill has been around since last year, he has surged in popularity in the last few weeks as people have begun sharing his picture.
Many people have started adding different captions and drawings of the character in order to single out irritations on social networks, and the internet in general.
But now, we've all had enough.

Bye bye Bill #KillBill

Many people will use an app to create their own Bill cartoons - right before they share it and start clogging up your news feed.
On Facebook, there will be a small, drop-down arrow on the right of the post. Click it, and you'll see the option "Hide all from".
This will hide any posts made using that particular app from appearing on your timeline.
You can also use this method to hide other Facebook features, like On This Day , from taking over your feed.

You don't have to be like , we are so you don't have to be.  But we've got your back in this and promotional products.

Fashion vs The Promotional Polo

OK ladies, we've all seen it or have had to wear it...the dreaded polo.  I don't know about you but on the weekends and in the office it is not what I choose to wear to look my best.  

So why do so many people still choose to wear it on the trade show floor?  It really has been one of your only options (Button-up is your other option).

Luckily over the last 15 year the promotional products industry has started making better fitting embroidered polos.  However, I don't know about you, but I am ready for the next generation in logoed apparel.

Shop for can bring it to you.   We will find you some of the top retail trends at promotional prices.   All we need is your quantity, sizes and style type and we will have you looking like the best dressed.  After all it's ok to say NO to the Polo.

Instagram Has A Most Photographed Food and It Made Us Laugh

Instagram has become a veritable haven of sepia-filtered sepia (the fish) and hashtagged hash browns -- but, well, one culinary staple sits atop the social media food pyramid: Pizza.
What were you expecting? Kale?
Yes, piping hot pizza was named as the most 'grammed food in the world, according to Italian site Tgcom24 and a study conducted by Italian chef Alessio Mecozzi and communications company Klaus Davi across the 300 million+ food photos posted to the photo-sharing behemoth. They found that out of those, 17 million photos captured and hashtagged the usually round, always delicious Italian essential. That's way more than any other food. The most popular 'za spot was New York City, and men were more likely to snap a pic of pizza than women.
So what is so funny about pizza being Instagram's most photographed food?
The products:  Gotta love this Portable Pizza Pouch

While we can make these for you we aren't sure they are really a winner. can get you one of these great pizza items:
