Sweet Chaotic Serendipity

Printed Rulers – Nothing Squigley Here

image of three promotional rulersI’m not one to draw straight lines at the best of times – as soon as I left school, I headed into a life of wild abandon; favouring the unpredictability that chance bestows upon us. Heard of the Chaos Theory? Well, it’s not the most reliable way of governing your life – all of life’s moments flow on from an initial action, like the butterfly effect, and you have to accept all the consequences as sweet serendipity. It is a lifestyle suited to the young and reckless – no matter what awful things happen in life and how tragedy unfolds, it’s all in the bigger scheme of things.

Printed Pens…Again!

picture of banner printed pensHere we go again! If I’ve written once about printed pens, I’ve written a dozen times about them! Or is that the case?

It was an interesting experience observing my colleagues arriving for work in a myriad of differing dress codes. From formal smart-office (tie and open collar) down to tee shirts and everything inbetween, we actually rep-resented a rabble (having so set dress code). Until, that is, endorsed and subsidised embroidered polo shirts were introduced. Continue reading

“I have a dream…”

Promotional Frisbees – Take Flight

image of multicoloured promotional frisbees“I have a dream…” that one day I will break free from the shackles that bind me to this desk and my commitment to a pension fund.” This year I looked at my LinkedIn profile and was saddened by my title – “Sales Manager” (of what, and who cares?!). You’d think that after nearly 50 years of revolving round the sun, I’d have amounted to more than someone who “manages sales”…well, that’s how I feel… Continue reading
