Election Day Name Badge Labels

November 2, 2010

You think I’m gonna talk about Republicans and Democrats. Sadly no, that’s not the case. I voted already, very early this morning, and I really don’t want to hear any more about Republicans or Democrats, or candidates. I’m on overload.
I’ll be talking about labels on this election day. Specifically name badge labels. We had a customer call us and tell us our labels were not sticking to their clothes. He said they were using the name badge labels in a very high rent area in town, and a great majority of the users were wearing leather jackets. Our Name badge labels are meant for the most common materials that clothes are made of, but unfortunately this excludes certain materials like leather, suede, velvet, corduroy, silk, vinyl, or plastic. Usually when name badge labels are used, they are used in an intimate setting. You’d normally have your jacket or coat off, maybe sitting at a conference table, or at a breakfast or lunch or dinner table. You know, most of the time you wouldn’t be wearing a jacket. So take off your leather jackets folks. So just a little buyer beware there. Forewarned is forearmed.

Post Halloween Sugar High

November 1, 2010

My 18 year old still goes trick or treating, seriously. And I’m not discouraging her from going either. Hey, I get to mooch off of her for a change. Free candy. I like a lot of stuff she doesn’t. I like the dark chocolate, she likes the milk chocolate. I like the Necco Wafers, she likes Twizzlers. I like York Peppermint Patties, she likes Tootsie Rolls. Needless to say, my blood sugar right now is what you call high. I have hummingbirds buzzing me sniffing the sugar oozing out of my pores. It’s not a good situation.

Right now I feel like Augustus Gloop:

All this sugar consumption, and so close to the elections? Very suspicious. I have a theory. I think that elections are affected adversely by people who vote with high blood sugar levels. People are going to the polls under the influence of sugar. Just look at the state of our country, the economy is in the tank, unemployment is high. Blame it on the sugar.

What does this has to do with labels? Hmmm. gimmie a minute, I’ll tie it in somehow.
OK, I’ve got it. Wait, no. Ok, wait. Ok, here goes. No, that’s no good. Ok, now I’ve really got it. Elections. Somebody has to win the elections tomorrow on election day. If you’re Republican, use our ML-3000 address labels to do mass mailings to Democrats and Independents in your neighborhood and convince them to vote Republican. If you’re a Democrat, you’d use our labels to mail out convincing reasons to vote for Democrats to Republicans and Independents. Hurry up, you’ve only got a few hours.
