With the installation of a seventh cup forming machine, the company has added two new sizes to its product line, boosted production to more than 200 million cups per year, while passing cost savings onto customers.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (June 18, 2014) – Visstun has expanded its reusable plastic and disposable paper cup offerings, and increased its production capacity, with the addition of a seventh Paper Machinery Corp.

Doctor’s See More Clearly with New Dorcy LED Aluminum Pocket Light

COLUMBUS, OH, June 1, 2014 – Dorcy Special Markets Division has introduced an Aluminum LED Pocket Light where the light emitting diode produces warm white illumination similar to an incandescent bulb.  The PL0103 EN&T Warm-White LED Aluminum Pocket Light was engineered and manufactured specifically for the medical professional.

“Since the introduction of LED lighting technology, physicians and other medical professionals have complained about the bright, cold, white light from LED pocket lights designed for ear, nose and throat examinations” said Tom Oddo, MAS, President of Dorcy’s Special Markets Division.  “These professionals were trained to view skin and tissue with incandescent light.  The LED color temperature was much colder and brighter, changing the appearance of the areas diagnosed, causing some to question the validity of their assessments.”

The PL0103 EN&T Warm-White LED Pocket Light now produces a light very near in color temperature to that of a standard incandescent bulb. With a color temperature near 3500K (Kelvin) the PL0103 reveals the illuminated area in a neutral white light with similar visual color as incandescent light. The output is noticeably easier on the eye, making different tissue types clearly distinguishable. This latest generation of LED light out-put is achieved with minimum power requirements, 2 replaceable AAA batteries that can operate for extended periods of time, making it significantly more energy efficient than a standard incandescent pocket light.

Oddo stated, “Dorcy set out to create the best possible conditions during eye, ear, nose and throat examinations for physicians and other medical professionals, with a lighting solution that offers optimal light color and rendering, limited heat emission, efficient use of the energy source and flexibility in use.”

The PL0103 EN&T Warm-White LED Pocket Light features

  • Heavy-duty aluminum barrel

  • Laser Engraving to enhance and secure the advertiser’s logo or message

CHARLES RIVER APPAREL LAUNCHES ALL-NEW PRODUCT VIDEOS AND STYLES FOR THE SPRING SEASON

Sharon, MA – Spring has sprung at Charles River Apparel!  Boston-based apparel manufacturer Charles River Apparel continues their tradition of designing high quality, retail- inspired apparel for the promotional products and sporting goods industries, adding five fresh spring styles to their product line.  In conjunction with the spring line, the company is adding new 360-degree product videos to their website.

With a focus on fashion-forward styles and hot, on-trend colors, Charles River has created vibrant new options for spring.  Director of Design, Tsedenia Kiros, explains her inspiration behind the new pieces: “The promotional product industry is absolutely trending toward retail in a bigger way then ever before.  This season, bright colors are much deeper and richer and are being seen in all fabrications, silhouettes and styles, across all markets.  A pop of color draw’s a person’s attention, and minimal patterns and traditional colors are pleasing to eye; the combination of these bright and punchy colors along with the basics creates a collection that is fun, and should be good sellers for our distributors.”

Among the new styles added are the lightweight and breathable Men’s (style 3516) and Women’s (2516) Shadow Stripe Polos.  These polos feature TopShieldTM moisture management treatment and anti-microbial technology, and are made from a jacquard knit fabric with a unique texture that resembles stripes.  The collection is offered in brilliant color options including Lime, Ocean Blue, Vivid Pink, Lavender, and classic navy and black.

Great for the office or the golf course is our Men’s (9529) and Women’s (5529) Axis Soft Shell Vests.  They are made from a breathable and water-resistant single-layer soft shell fabric that is flexible and exceptionally comfortable.  They come in coordinating colors, as well as a striking Turquoise/White for women and Black/Lime for men.

The Hooded Rugby Pullover (9574) is a new take on a classic style. 


With the coming of spring, Charles River has also introduced product videos to their website.  Currently, the standard for displaying products online is with photos and zoom features.  Video is the next media to showcase product quality, sizing and fit.  With the addition of these videos to the Charles River website, distributors are now be able to view a garment from every angle and can see how the garment fits on a live person.  Vanessa Keefe, VP of Marketing, comments “Our Customer Service Department frequently fields questions on how a particular jacket or shirt is sized, or if the back of a garment has the same color-blocking or stitching detail as the front.  These videos will provide answers to many of the sizing, fit and design questions we receive, as well as allow customers to easily interact with our products and share them with their own clientele.  We are excited to provide our customers with an improved online shopping experience.”  Check out videos of the new spring styles at http://www.charlesriverapparel.com/our-collection/new-for-spring.html (videos are located on each product page under the main image). Made of durable 100% cotton jersey with a 4” yarn-dyed rugby stripe, it features a hood and is available in 8 colors in sizes XXS up to 3XL.
