One of the fun things about the Cubbies embroiderable stuffed animals is that there are new designs coming out on a regular basis. We have the most fun deciding which animals to bring in, and figuring out unique ideas for how they can be used. Embroidery and sublimation are, of course, two ways these cuddly little friends can be decorated, but the type of decoration that is put on them can change based on the use to which the animal will be put.
Take school mascots for instance. Schools use lions (we have one), mustangs ( we have an adorable harlequin horse), bears (in white or brown), or ducks as mascots. We also have owls which could be gifted to an especially wise graduate. Simply add the graduation date, the school name and the graduate’s name, or use any of these graduation themed designs to make a memento of graduation any graduate would be proud to own.
If you live in the country or have your business in an area where a lot of people farm or ranch, the harlequin horse would be a great souvenir for a horse farm or riding stable. A dairy farm, especially one that sells milk or cheese, would probably love their very own embroidered cow souvenir. Ducks, lambs and pigs would also fit into this category. These cute farm themed designs from Embroidery Library would be adorable on any of these animals.
Speaking of pigs, what could make a more perfect mascot for a BBQ restaurant? Yes, I know it sounds a bit weird, but think of how many BBQ restaurants use a pig in their logo. A cow could also work in this situation, depending on the types of meats served. Creative Connections has some cute BBQ and restaurant themed embroidery designs that could be used to turn a Cubbie into a fun restaurant souvenir.
Finally, let’s not forget the Dumbles and the fact that baby themed items are a fast growing market for Cubbies. Subway art birth announcements can be used to commemorate a birth. You can find examples of digitized subway art birth announcement designs here and here. The Embroidery Library also has a wide array of baby and child themed designs, many of which would suit a Cubbie admirably.
The main thing to remember, when working with Cubbies, is to think outside the box. An embroidered or sublimated Cubbie can be used for many different purposes, as a mascot, a memento, a souvenir, a promotional item or a collectible. Your job, as the decorator, is to help your customers see all the possibilities in this simple embroiderable stuffed animal.
