I love seeing my tax dollars put to good use, don’t you?
First Lady Michelle Obama reportedly employs a staff of 20, some of whom enjoy six-figure salaries on our dime. Twenty? For real? Are they playing “Words with Friends” on their government-supplied iPads all day?
VP Joe Biden, I’ve read, has a staffer for his personal residence, also at taxpayers’ expense. Seriously? The guy can’t employ his own cook and housekeeper like the rest of us? (HAHAHAHA!)
And our President? He’s decided that now is good time to rehab the Oval Office. Doesn’t sound too bad, right? I’ve always hated that stripy wallpaper in there and paint is cheap. Or…maybe it’s not. President Obama will utilize a second office that will be constructed for his use during the $376 million renovation that will take place at the White House. I guess they’re not shopping at Home Depot. In fact, I’m certain they’re buying some bullet proof paint at $50K a gallon from a factory in China. And the Oval Office will require no less than three coats, expertly applied by highly trained painters commanding six figure salaries.
It’s been reported that nearly one million government workers will no be paid during the government shut down. That sucks for them because missing a paycheck can make it awfully tough to pay the bills. This is how we treat our veterans?
Who will get paid? The president and every member of Congress, of course.
Therefore, I thought it was timely to present these slackers with some promotional golf gear they could probably use on the golf course during their taxpayer-funded vacations.
I Heart Golf Keychains
“I’d Rather Be Golfing.”
Promotional 6-pack Cooler Bags
“Government Shutdown 2013: I went golfing and all the taxpayers bought me was this lousy six pack.”
Customized Golf Bags
Because the taxpayers might as well buy all their golf gear. We seem to buy everything else. Charge it!
Taxpayers, what are your thoughts on the government shutdown?

Anvil Cotton Deluxe polos can be screen printed or embroidered with your logo for a competitive low price at Show Your Logo.
If you own a business or run an organization of any kind, custom logo apparel is a must-have when shopping and budgeting for promotional products. Whether your employees’ wardrobe requires business suits or t-shirts on a daily basis, there’s room on either end of the wardrobe continuum for custom polo shirts. Polo shirts and business casual go together like Sunday school and brunch. You can choose to see a custom polo shirt as dressing up (for you t-shirt regulars) or dressing down (for business-casual Fridays). They’re great for that golf outing followed by Sunday brunch, too.
Here are ten reasons we at Show Your Logo love our huge selection of quality, cheap custom polos.
1) Donning a 100% cotton polo is just as comfortable to wear as that 100% cotton t-shirt.
2) A comfortable custom shirt is a shirt that makes it out of the closet.
3) Custom polo shirts that make it out of the closet give your logo the visibility it deserves.
4) Print or embroider your logo or other pertinent company details on the chest, on the sleeve, or centered on the back of the polo just under the collar. No matter. All locations look sharp! Go crazy if you want and choose all three print or embroidery locations.
5) Cheap custom polos are available in a huge selection of colors. Brand your business with conservative colors like navy, black, or white, or go a completely different route and be bold. Lime green. Purple. Banana. (Truly. “Banana” is a color option.)
6) You can choose to order cheap custom polos in styles manufactured for women. In order to enjoy wearing a company custom polo, women prefer not to appear shapeless.
7) Buttons. How do you wear your polos? All buttons undone? One undone? Or buttoned up all the way? (Is it me…or can you tell a lot about a person by the way they button their polo shirts?)
8) Collars. I’m dating myself here, but anybody remember the eighties when it was cool to wear the collar of your polos up near your ears? Do you think that will ever make a comeback? (No.)
9) Unlike a dress shirt, a polo shirt doesn’t have to visit the dry cleaner or set up a meeting with the iron. No offense, dry cleaners, but I hate the drop off, the pick up, and the prices. I hate irons even more. Who’s with me?!
10) What’s not to love about polo shirt days? Golf outings? Casual Friday? Brunch? It’s all good.
Be sure to shop our impressive selection of custom, company polo shirts. From our super-affordable, 100% cotton polos to our brand name wicking polo shirts, we have the custom printed polo shirts you need at prices your budget and your employees are going to love. Contact the Show Your Logo sales team for a quote on polos or any of our 750,000 promotional products.

If I were presented with the task of finding a suitable gift for one world leader to present to another world leader, I might balk. I might briefly consider a iPod like Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard gave to President Obama. I would worry, though, that he already had one of those. Or an iPhone, which is like an iPod only better.
I can tell you that I would not consider the $40,000 photograph the governor of Rio de Janeiro gifted to President Obama. Not in the budget.
And then I might turn to high end golf gifts, just as German Chancellor Angela Merkel did. Merkel reportedly gifted President Obama with $1,400 of golf equipment, including some Kramski putters with head covers. (I personally wonder if she had them custom printed with the presidential seal, but the article didn’t indicate whether or not this is so.)
High end golf gifts, customized to your specifications, are clearly a great gift option. World leaders are doing it. That means you should, too. Show Your Logo is your source for high end golfer gifts, whether you’re printing them for world leaders, CEO’s, or some valued employees.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite high end golf gifts for you right here. All may be customized any way you like. Company logo? Personal message? Presidential seal? No problem.
Custom Shoe Bags
What’s better than a custom printed shoe bag? Simple. A custom printed shoe bag with a high end pair of golf shoes tucked inside. You can always stop by the pro shop before the game. There are always nice shoes there.
Custom Titleist Golf Balls
These golf balls would look pretty slick with the presidential seal on them, but then again, they look pretty slick with just about any logo on them. No matter what you decide to print upon your custom golf balls, theses high quality promotional products are guaranteed to please.
Custom Golf Club Head Covers
Remember, President Obama’s golf clubs came with head covers! You can customize head covers for your own golf outing guests right here at Show Your Logo.
Custom Golf Bags
These high quality golf bags can be custom printed with your company name and logo, the name of your organization, or a personal message. This is a gift they truly won’t soon forget.
Even in the dog days of summer an early tee time can arrive with a chill in the air. These custom windbreakers will keep those golfers comfortable and focused on the game.
High Quality, Embroidered Golf Shirts
A name brand, custom embroidered wicking golf shirt is a great gift. These Nike shirts are one of many high quality, brand name choices available for customization here at Show Your Logo.
Do you have something else in mind? No problem. We can customize 750,000 promotional products any way you like them. Contact our knowledgeable sales team today. We can help you find the right promotional gifts at the right price whether you’re prepping to gift the president of a company or the president of the free world.

It’s been a chilly Spring in Chicagoland this year, but that hasn’t stopped local golfers from dusting off their clubs. No matter the weather, I’ve spotted them on the local courses that aren’t even green yet. In fact, I’d describe the local courses as downright muddy.
With such unpredictable weather (it was 70 degrees for a few hours the other day), it’s a great idea to order an assortment of custom golf apparel for your upcoming golf outing. Hope for great weather and sunny skies, but prepare for chillier temps and rain. Show Your Logo can deliver high quality, logo golf apparel suitable for all weather conditions.

The greatest golf outing marketing item I ever received was totally unexpected. A lot of people might not think of a sports bottle as the greatest golf event give away, but paired with the right presentation it is.
Picture this: It is 100 degrees outside with 100% humidity. You are slogging through another corporate golf outing just trying to not look like a fool. Then you come to a hole where a person is handing out sports bottles. As you mop the sweat from your face, you think to yourself, “A sports bottle filled with cold water would be very refreshing.” What’s even more refreshing than ice cold water on a golf course when it’s over 100 degrees outside? Hands down, the answer is a sports bottle filled with an icy cold margarita.
The point is a promotional item is only as exciting as you make it. I have said for years that I can take any promo item and make it fit any event. It is all in the message and art that is printed on the items. You can make the message as boring or as fun as you want. The fun marketing pieces are the ones that people tend to talk about for years to come. I cannot remember who gave me the cold towel on one of the holes at that same golf outing, but I can tell you the name of the vendor and the person who handed me the sports bottle filled with that icy cold, refreshing margarita.
The message could be as simple as funny sayings on the golf tees. The Custom Scramble Golf Kit is great for golf outings and getting your message out there. There are many different items that can all be printed with different messages. Mix it up and make your next corporate golf outing more fun. Can’t think of anything fun or creative? Contact us and we can do it for you.
