Tradeshows bring production! Pre-books are in, and it's time to produce and ship on time. Whether it's apparel, accessories, or technical sports apparel (i.e. - boardshorts) Creative Concept can help!

Creative Concept knows change can be difficult, and to ease that pain the company offers "to sample your current products at no charge - delivered to you within 30 days!"

Tradeshows create curiosity. For example, "hmm....who made those labels and hang tags?" One company that can help, and produces both regular and environmentally friendly products is Oletta HK. Oletta HK, based in Hong Kong, makes labels, hang tags, and a whole host of other products. Oletta states competitve "made in China" pricing and minimums start around 1,000 pieces.

Need a break from tradeshows? Or reading the word? Me too! Take a moment to enjoy the new "Peak to Peak" campaign created by Origin Design + Communications for Whistler's new gondola that travels almost 3 miles from one peak to another, and reaches a height of nearly 1,500 feet above the valley floor. The very first crossing took place on September 18th, 2008. It might be a safe bet to believe the first car to cross was empty, but not in this case! That's right, the very first car to go for it was manned by an engineer from the engineering / construction company Doppelmayr! Put your life where your mouth is! Origin created both a youth focused campaign as well as a more "traditional" focused campaign for Peak to Peak. To see more of Origin's recent work, click here.
