What’s cuddly and cute, easily personalized and a great gift or souvenir? If you answered a Remembear, you’ve obviously already seen the adorable new embroiderable stuffed animals that EnMart now carries.
Like the popular Cubbies line, which has been a staple at EnMart for the past several years, Remembears have a zipper in their bottom and a stuffing pod which can easily be removed for decoration. The material of the animals is suitable for embroidery, as well as sublimation and vinyl. The tags on Remembears say they are hand wash only, but we tested one in washing machine on the delicate cycle and it came through without an issue, so the Remembears can be washed, albeit gently.
One characteristic of the Remembears worth noting is their large size. These animals are 16 inches tall and offer a larger sewing field. As the picture with this post shows, the size difference can be quite striking. Remembears are definitely a good option for any sort of display or memento, as the size of the animals makes them stand out noticeably. Theyre also a good option for larger size fonts or more wordy quotes, as there is more space on which to work.
You should also keep in mind that Remembears offer some specialty items like the angel bears, which are bears with wings and gold or silver noses. The angel bears are an ideal option for a memorial, as they contain a small pocket which could be used to hold a portion of a loved one’s ashes, or a small memento of that person. An angel bear could be a lasting memorial to someone who’s gone, that not only can be displayed, but also hugged.
The variety of Remembears available means there are a lot of options for sales to different groups and organizations. The cow could work for a dairy or ice cream shop. The moose or the wolf could work as school mascots or to commemorate a graduation. The giraffe and the zebra would be great offerings for a zoo. A natural history museum would love the green triceratops. The possibilities for these animals are limited only by your imagination.
Since Remembears can also be decorated via methods other than embroidery, they offer a flexible personalization option. Buy some sublimation supplies and sublimate a photo or complicated design. Get a heat press and try some rhinestones. And, for those that work with embroidery, Remembears are a great blank canvas just waiting to be decorated with your favorite thread. The possibilities are endless, and the Remembears are here, at EnMart, waiting for their furever homes.
Every company is different, and each has its own way of doing things, and its own little insider secrets. Since the end of 2018 is close at hand, I figured it might be a good time to share a few tips for getting the most from your relationship with EnMart, so you can start 2019 off on the right note.
Tip #1: Look for the discounts and the specials – Iris UltraBrite Polyester Thread, the king cones anyway, definitely falls in this category. Did you know if you purchase 12 or more in any combination of colors you will receive a dollar off per cone? That takes the wholesale price of a dozen cones from $76.20 to $64.20. There are also quantity discounts on certain items as well. Make sure to check the “Qty Breaks” tab on the sublimation products and on blank patches. Purchasing a few more items than planned could be very helpful to your budget.
Tip #2: Sell what others don’t sell – EnMart offers a few products that other suppliers don’t offer. One such product is the Iris Thread mentioned previously. Another product that is available only from EnMart is the Remembears. Offering a product your competitors don’t offer gives you an advantage in your particular marketplace. If you seize the opportunity early, you can lock in and dominate the customer base for those products.
Tip #3: Order early – We at EnMart pride ourselves on our speedy shipping and strive to get orders for goods that don’t need to be manufactured out the same day. If you want prompt shipping of your orders, it’s best to place them as early in the day as you can. Our official cut off time for same day orders is 2 p.m. In practice we may stretch that a little, but it’s still always best to order sooner rather than later.
Tip #4: Time Issue – Talk To Us – We know that sometimes orders get placed at the last minute, or a customer brings you a rush order and you need supplies now. We’re familiar with the panic that can cause, and we’re willing to help, if you let us know. If you have a time sensitive issue with an order, put a note on the order when you place it, or contact us to let us know about your needs. We can’t promise to be able to meet every request, but we certainly can’t meet any of the ones we don’t know anything about.
Tip #5 – Follow us on Social Media – Want to be the first to know about specials or sales? Eager to hear about new products before your competitors? EnMart generally spreads any news we have to share through our social media feeds or by e-mail. Follow EnMart on Facebook or Twitter, or visit our boards on Pinterest to stay up on what’s happening at EnMart. You can also join our mailing list to be sure you receive our e-mails.
