Since the product list at Top Dog Screen Printing and Embroidery seems to be endless, I thought once a week I would introduce a product or service that you might not know Top Dog offers. Welcome to What-We-Do Wednesday!
Banners are a very popular product for a number of reasons. They are a great way to inexpensively advertise your community event, fundraiser, grand opening, or sales message. Banners are mostly used outdoors, but can also be displayed in large spaces indoors to advertise special sales or to thank sponsors at events.
Our standard sizing for banners is 3ft x 6ft but we can make any custom size you need! Our banner material is made out of high quality canvas banner material that can survive the outdoor elements. We use eco-solvent inks that are printed onto the banner and are rated to last 3 years or more outdoors. If you are hanging your banner outdoors we can even cut wind slots in your banner so the wind can pass through easily. Metal grommets are placed wherever you need them in order to hang your banner securely.
Custom design is included in the price of the banner! No need to pay someone extra to make your banner stand out and grab the attention you need! Our in-house Graphic Artists will work with your ideas to create a unique design for your event, organization, or business. Avoid the online store’s cookie cutter looks and really make your banner stand out! Don’t pay extra to have someone print a hi-resolution banner; they should already be doing that for you! Top Dog strives for the best. We want you to be 100% happy with your custom project and that means we put out our best product every time.

If you were home alone and the “cable guy” showed up, would you open your door for him if he was wearing an old t-shirt, jeans, and was driving an unmarked vehicle? Probably not. This is a prime example on how not to represent your business. Doors open to people and businesses that represent their company in a respectable and professional manner. That same man with a company logo’d polo, khakis, and a vehicle with company decals on the side would have the door opened for him presumably without question.
The other day a saleswoman came into Top Dog selling insurance and asked for the Owner. She was wearing an old unbranded coat, unbranded winter stocking cap, and jeans. Although she was carrying a binder there was no way I could tell she was selling insurance. She did not get through to the Owner. If the saleswoman came in representing her company right out front (and gave me a REALLY good reason why she should speak with the Owner) I would let her through. It takes very little effort to brand your coat, hat, and binder and can make a substantial difference in sales.

Now is the time to start thinking about your personalized gifts for the Holidays. There are many ways to personalize a gift for someone special. Whether it is an existing logo, an inside joke, a name, or monogram, personalization gives that unique touch at the Holiday season.
If they already have apparel with their company logo on it, casually ask where they got it done. Place an order at that company with their logo on a jacket, sweatshirt, hat or scarf! Just be sure to tell the customer service staff this is a gift and they are not to know about it!
There are many items that can be decorated for someone that would be a unique custom gift. Embroidery is the most universal way to decorate items. At Top Dog Screen Printing and Embroidery you can avoid minimums by choosing this process. Customize your apparel with various fonts and colors!
One hot idea for this season is tech cases. We have many styles available for the tech-lover! Bright new colors were just introduced this year and we are super excited to start personalizing this new trend. From tablet sleeves to laptop sleeves we have your tech-lover covered. No matter where they bring their device it will be protected from the elements while also representing them!
Another idea for the Holidays is embroidered blankets. We have many options to cuddle up with! My favorite this year is the Plush Blanket. This lightweight blanket is fuzzy, cozy, and will make you want to cuddle all day. This Plush Blanket is perfect for those winter nights by the fire with hot cocoa in hand. Embroidered monograms are most often used on blankets because they offer a sophisticated yet personal touch. These Plush Blankets come in a variety of colors and start at only $24.98!
No matter what gift you have in mind for some special this year, personalize it with the elegant look of embroidery from Top Dog Screen Printing and Embroidery in Appleton, WI.

I don’t know about you, but like most women, I am always cold. Looking at the fashion trends for Fall I know that they are not practical for me at my workplace. Especially being in Wisconsin, having the door open when customers come in sends a cold breeze shooting my way. Don’t get me wrong, the cute pencil skirts and sleeveless dresses with a printed scarf are very desirable this time of year, but just aren’t practical for me. I looked around for some practical fall trends and found a few essentials that will keep me warm and trendy this season.
Faux Leather Jacket
This faux leather jacket from The Limited gives you an edgy touch while keeping you warm. When working with customers it is essential to be comfortable. If you are standing at the front desk shivering customers will pick up on this and find it distracting at the very least. Be comfortable even if that means throwing on a jacket. Easily dress up your look with dress pants and heels.
Blazer + Scarf + Jeans = love.
I am loving this blazer and scarf combo that Elle Macpherson is shown rocking here. Scarves are a must have for fall. You can find them in tons of colors and patterns and at very inexpensive prices! Mix and match neutral-colored blazers with animal print, plaid, and even neon scarves. Paired with a simple dark jean you can achieve a professional but comfortable look.
You don’t need a horse for riding boots.
Riding boots are a must have for fall. I am a huge fan not only because I can wear really high socks with them to keep my toes warm, but they also keep snow off my feet when it gets to be winter! I am always looking for practical fashion, and this is a MUST for fall/winter in Wisconsin. I must admit, I am a big fan of skinny jeans also and these are essential to have with riding boots! I always buy neutral color riding boots so I can dress my outfit up with some color! Again, an easy and inexpensive way to do this is with a cute scarf!
Graphics and Cardigans
I am loving this look by J Crew. This is a fun and fashionable way to add interest to an outfit. I like to embroider our company logo on the cardigan to give it a professional look while still being fun. Sweaters are definitely a favorite of mine to beat the cold air! Try a cardigan in a bold color like red, royal blue, marigold, or fuchsia to be daring. You can also keep it professional with a black, grey, or navy cardigan and vibe it up with a bright graphic tee!
There are so many cute options for fall that will keep you warm and be practical for you at work. Sorry, pencil skirts, you are cute…but not for a cold Wisconsin girl.

Now is the time for people to start thinking about gifts for Christmas. I know, it seems to be too early to start thinking about this. But the sooner you do, the more prepared you will be. Top Dog Screen Printing and Embroidery offers many budget friendly products that will make personal and cherished gifts.
From an employer’s perspective, employees show up to work for you every day. They work hard and represent you and your company. Are they visually representing you professionally with company logo’d clothing? If not, now is a great time to play double duty on gifting. Not only will they appreciate the gift and feel valued, they will be able to wear their personalized gift to work and represent your company professionally with their logo’d polo or jacket. Making your employees feel special and appreciated is a big part of team moral. Spend this Christmas putting a little time into your employee’s feelings, and you will see a return on your investment.
Christmas time isn’t just for employers showing their appreciation for their dedicated employees. Families take much time planning their gifts for their loved ones. Embroidery offers versatility in the garment decoration industry. With a one piece minimum for embroidered items at Top Dog, you are able to personalize almost any gift for your special someone. Bring in your family’s Christmas stockings and we will happily monogram them for you in fun fonts and colors! You can also embroider a fleece blanket in your son or daughter’s school colors. If you are in the process of making a quilt for your Granddaughter, why not embroider her name on a square before it is completely done? There are simple ways to add personal touches with embroidery that will show your loved one you went the extra mile this year.
Don’t forget we make promotional products also! These pens, mugs, hats, and totes are fun and inexpensive ways to show your customers they are valued this year. Give them a little something to remember you by and as a “Thank You” for their business this year! Call Top Dog to get started on your early planning! 920-882-5576.
