Fun, affordable and cool. That's the trifecta when it comes to creating a new product offering that will be loved by all. Our guess is that Peelstar is one of those products that will become a craze in the youth sports marketplace given a bit more time and exposure.
The website can't be much better. There's nothing to read, no complicated instructions to follow. One click and you're designing a removable sticker or magnet that can be adhered to any smooth surface. Put your Peelstar on your locker or laptop, bedroom wall or car window. It won't come off unless you want it to, and then it peels off easily with no residue left behind.
The designing tool is easy-to-use and powerful. In just a few minutes you can create a custom jersey for virtually any sport, including patterns, colors and trims of your choice. Is there something you don't see in there you'd like to use? They'll let you email a photo and will have it up and ready to include in your design in no time. And their team roster feature will let you make a Peelstar for the entire squad in a jiffy. Perfect novelty gift for the end of the season.
Peelstar has everything in place to make it big-time. And when they do, we'll be able to say, “we told you so.”
Wouldn't it be wonderful to be in a business where you know that every product you manufacture is going to be prized by it's recipient, will serve as a recognition and testimonial of his or her accomplishment and spur a cherished memory? Well, we may be overstating just a bit, but not much. And that is what makes coming to work at Quick Trophy such a pleasure.
Whether you only need a handful of trophies or hundreds, you'll get them at a great price and in a timely manner, with free engraving. Your order will be perfect every time.
Their website isn't overly-fancy, but it's clear, concise and has all the information you need to find the right award. And they have everything under the sun. (Need a Broomball trophy? No problem!).
Now, go in and see how easy it is to place an order. You can buy trophies for your entire team or even league, in only a few minutes. You'll see a virtual representation of the finished product on your screen and know what you're getting is exactly what you want.
At their state of the art manufacturing facility, they engrave the plaques, awards and name plates and assemble the trophies in minutes. Fully 99% of orders placed on the QuickTrophy web site are shipped out the day they receive the order or by the next business day. If there was a trophy for fastest, best quality and service, they'd have to make it for themselves.
So whether you're in a hurry and need trophies “quick” or if you're a discerning consumer who is more concerned about value and service, there's only one place you need to look. And know when you hand that trophy over to the youngster on your team to be displayed proudly on his bookshelf for years to come, that it meant as much to the people who made it as it does to him.

What has Gatorade always done better than anyone? They've given athletes the fuel they need to compete at the highest level, and made it taste so good that everyone wants more. Their three-step process for pre, during and post-workout is no exception.
They sent us Strawberry Gatorade Prime Energy Chews, Glacier Cherry Gatorade Frost and a bottle of Chocolate Gatorade Recover Protein Shake to tryout. My high school son happened to be in the midst of his summer weights program for baseball when they arrived so it was perfect timing. He already made protein shakes with his own supplement powder after each work out, but he'd never tried the Gatorade Recover. He loved it. Not only did it taste much better than his powder mix, but he enjoyed the convenient bottle and the fact that it was ready to drink immediately. The product delivers an effective amount of protein with essential amino acids to help athletes rebuild muscle after training or competition and come back strong.
Everyone knows while you're working out it is hard to beat a cold bottle of Gatorade to help you with hydration. Well the new flavor, Glacier Cherry, may be their most refreshing yet.
The big surprise was the Energy Chews. They taste fruity and nutritious. You can instantly tell they're working, giving you more energy to hit the gym. Their blend of carbs and B vitamins without caffeine help you go harder, longer. And there is no crash after. They provide fuel in a convenient and functional form for athletes to take on-the-go.
Pre-workout, during and post-workout, here's a one-two-three punch that is hard to beat. It tastes great, it's convenient and effective. If you're struggling with your motivation, performance or results, Gatorade is doing everything they can think of to get you where you need to be.
I look at it every day on my bookcase in my office. The world's greatest Team Mom, Cari, had it made for me after my Little League team, on which her son played with my two boys, won the City Championship. I had never seen anything like it before, nor have I since. But it's what the folks at Fun Fotos have been doing for years.
Send them your favorite photo of a sporting event, (or anything else, such as weddings, for that matter), and they'll bring it to three dimensional life. Created with 1/4” durable acrylic, they transform a photograph into a award that will be a souvenir forever. I've accumulated tons of keepsakes over my years of coaching my sons and daughter, but this is the one that has been displayed in the most prominent of spots in my office for ten years now. Every time I look at it I remember that game, that night, and the fun it was coaching that team.
Ordinary trophies are great. But for memorable, lasting awards you'll treasure the rest of your life, nothing stands out like a photo sculpture from Fun Fotos. Literally.

When my daughter suffered a severe ankle sprain that took her out of her competitive soccer team's lineup, it was distressing on several levels. Not only did she miss an important tournament along with several weeks of games, but she had to sit by and watch as her teammates played on without her, got better and, in some ways, left her behind. As her ankle slowly recovered, inversely, her confidence eroded, making her more and more anxious about finally being able to get back on the field. What if she couldn't perform at a high level because of the injury? What if she re-injured the ankle and missed even more time? The worst thing she could do is come back and play tentatively, but it would be hard to go 100% right out of the gate.
Luckily, our physical therapist recommended a McDavid Ankle Brace – the most heavy duty they make. This is not just a neoprene sleeve. The hard plastic lock-down cuff restricts excessive rotation and the inner sleeve provides comfort and support. The initial concern when we got this was that her mobility would suffer, but she didn't complain about that at all. And I didn't notice any diminshment in her skills. She came to depend on the brace, wore it the entire high school season and had a great year. All of the wear and tear of club, followed by high school soccer, play and practice every day, took it's toll and just as the high school team got into playoffs, the brace finally broke. What did McDavid do as a customer service courtesy? They sent us a new one to replace it. That's what I call great support.
