Safari Medic’s Custom Bandanas

Hey guys – this is Chris writing again about another one of my favorite clients and their custom bandana design!

I had the absolute pleasure of working recently with a unique company called Safari Medic. Safari Medic was created in the game fields and jungles of Mozambique by an Orthopedic Surgeon with US Navy experience who built a top-of-the-line personal medical/trauma kit for dangerous game hunts. Although there were many first aid kits on the market, with his knowledge and skill he was able to provide the entire adventure community with the best professional-grade medical kits.

Safari Medic will be using their awesome custom bandanas not only for use in the desert for safari adventures, but they also sell them in as a retail item. They can be used to keep the sun off your neck and face in harsh environments and are great for moisture-wicking while in the wild. More information on Safari Medic can be found on their website, where you can purchase their kits and even one of their Hoo-rags!

If you’re ever in need of some custom bandanas feel free to hit me up and I’ll make sure you’re taken care of. I can be reached at Chris@hoorag.com or give a call at 888.831.9344 extension 109.

Custom Bandanas for Artists

This week on our client spotlight we’re going to take a look at something a little different. Over the years we’ve worked with quite a few artists and photographers. We enjoy doing it because it showcases the detail we can achieve with dye sublimation. A lot of our clients are more familiar with screen printing where you’re charged by the color. It’s also VERY limited in terms of how complex of a print you can achieve. That’s not the case with dye sublimation. That’s why artists and photographers like Michael Underwood Photography come to us for custom bandanas and similar products!

Michael Underwood is a photographer out of Colorado, and he primarily does landscape and wildlife photography. His photos are from his beautiful native state of Colorado, but are certainly not limited to it. He has a few different series including Colorado Landscapes, The West, New England, and Wildlife. All of them are breathtaking. If you’re into photography and looking for some gorgeous prints take a stroll over to his website here.

Michael came to us looking to take some of his favorite photographs and put them on our custom bandanas . We were certainly happy to oblige. As you can see, we achieved photorealistic reproductions on our custom bandanas in all their stunning, colorful beauty. While we’re only showcasing one of them here, he ordered a few of them and each one is just as great as the last.

If you’re an artist or photographer and looking for a product that showcases your talents while also not costing an arm and a leg feel free to reach out. We can put your works of art on bandanas, headbands, or any other product we customize. You can shoot me an e-mail at kody@hoorag.com, give me a call at 888-831-9344 extension 107, or fill out a form here.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Custom Bandanas and Airsoft

Custom Bandanas Airsoft

You know what time it is!  It’s time to look at another one of our featured clients.  After 6 years at Hoo-rag, I’ve worked with clients quite literally all over the world.  A lot of our business comes from word of mouth.  If we make an awesome custom bandana for one client, it inevitably gets seen by other people and then they become clients as well. 

We’ve seen this in action time and time again.  We’ll get an inquiry from a client in a country we’ve never worked in before and then over the next year, we’ll get a handful more.  That’s exactly what happened in Japan a few years ago.

We received an inquiry from a company called Bake Wall that sells Airsoft products in Japan.  I wasn’t aware of it at the time, but Airsoft is pretty huge in Japan.  Bake Wall wanted us to make them some custom bandanas to promote their Airsoft brand.  They were so successful that over the next few years we ended up working with 5 more clients in the Airsoft industry in Japan.

When you have a product that you know has value your clients almost become a secondary sales and marketing team.  Other people see the success and want a little bit of it for themselves.  That’s a big part of what has made Hoo-rag so successful over the years: providing a great product and great service.

If you’re in the Airsoft (Or any kind of tactical hobby) business and want an awesome product to promote your business, feel free to reach out!  We can make custom bandanas with some of your favorite camo patterns including Realtree and Kryptek.  We’ll get you an awesome design you can sell in your shop or use as a promo item to hand out to customers.  You can give me a call at 888-831-9344 extension 107, e-mail me at kody@hoorag.com, or just fill out a form here

Boeing Fire Department Custom Bandanas

Hey guys – this is Chris writing again about another one of my favorite clients and their custom bandana design!⁠

I worked with John on getting some awesome Boeing Fire Department CST-100 Extrication Team custom bandanas done so their crew has some protection against the elements of the desert in New Mexico. Boeing is currently preparing their CST-100 Starliner to be a next-generation space capsule built to take people and cargo to and from low-Earth orbit. Upon its return, the Boeing Fire Department CST-100 Extrication Team will assist in the support of landings of the CST-100 Starliner by approaching the module, getting measurements for ground-cooling, and removing the astronauts. Once the spacecraft gets into routine missions, it will deliver astronauts to the space station every six months!⁠

The Boeing Fire Department CST-1000 Extrication Team will be using their awesome custom bandanas to keep themselves protected in the high heat of the desert, and they are great for filtering the dust and sand they will encounter. Hoorags are also great for moisture-wicking, which comes in handy for high-pressure situations and for keeping cool.⁠

If you’re ever in need of some custom bandanas feel free to hit me up and I’ll make sure you’re taken care of. I can be reached at Chris@hoorag.com or give a call at 888.831.9344 extension 109.⁠

Custom Bandanas and Travel

custom bandanas trek travel

Kody here again and it’s time to look at another one of our amazing clients.  We work with a lot of companies in the travel industry. That’s primarily because our custom bandanas and travel go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly.  They aren’t just a memento, but more of a tool for the people visiting these exotic locales around the world.  Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with some awesome clients that put together some amazing trips, but one of my favorites is Trek Travel.

Trek Travel isn’t your average travel agency.  They’re not just packaging together airfare and hotels.  Instead, they put together incredible cycling trips to locations around the world.  Wanna do a tour through Chile on a bike?  How about Japan?  Maybe Scotland is more your speed.  Regardless, Trek Travel has you covered! 

Trek Travel does a lot of work with us and that’s because our products are so versatile.  If they’re visiting a desert, they’re going to need sun protection, something they can use to keep dust or sand out of their lungs, and maybe, if it gets a little too hot, something they can soak in water and cool down.  Our custom bandanas can do ALL of those.  Or maybe they’re riding up a mountain and need something to add a little extra warmth.  That’s where our custom bandanas lined with fleece come in.  As I mentioned above these items are more tools than anything.  The fact that they serve as a memento for an amazing adventure after the fact is just a nice little bonus!

If you’re looking for the adventure of a lifetime you can check out their website here or you can find them on Facebook and Instagram by searching Trek Travel.

If you’re a travel agency or tour guide yourself looking for an item that keeps your clients safe and reminds them of what an amazing time they had years down the road give me a shout!  You can call me at 888-831-9344 extension 107, e-mail me at kody@hoorag.com, or fill out a form here

Potato Variety Management Institue (PVMI) Custom Bandanas

Hey guys – this is Chris writing again about another one of my favorite clients and their custom bandana design!

I worked with Jeanne on getting some awesome Potato Variety Management Institute (PVMI) custom bandanas done so she had some unique promotional items for some events that happened earlier this year. One of the events that she used them for was the Potato Expo that happened in Anaheim, CA in January 2022. I never really realized how many different varieties of potatoes there were prior to reaching out to them and that more varieties are being created all the time. They list almost 40 different varieties on their website!

Potato Variety Management Institute is a non-profit corporation that handles the licensing and royalty collection on Tri-State potato varieties and was commissioned in 2005 by the state potato commissions of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. They promote new varieties of potatoes which includes everything from the administration of licenses and royalty fees, promotion marketing, and creating opportunities for increased variety utilization and commercialization. They can be found at PVMI.org and you can check out this cool video that Jeanne is in to learn more: https://bit.ly/3xgQ0K6

Coral Restoration Foundation Custom Hoo-rags

Coral Restoration Foundation Custom Hoo-rags

It’s Tuesday, guys. That means it’s time for another featured client with your resident Bandana Master. This one is an oldie, but a goodie. I’ve been working with Coral Restoration Foundation on custom Hoo-rags almost since I started here.

Being based in Florida we treasure the ocean here at Hoo-rag. Whether that’s a day at the beach sunbathing or an afternoon out on the boat trying to snag a giant Snook, the ocean is just part of the lifestyle here. That is why preserving it is such a big issue. If you take the beach out of Florida, there’s not a whole lot left to visit unless you’re REALLY into theme parks.

That’s where Coral Restoration Foundation comes in. They’ve been actively working to preserve Florida’s coral reefs since 2007. That involves quite a bit from expensive studies to actually growing coral reefs and transporting them to areas where they can thrive. All of this costs money which, at least partially, is generated by selling Coral Restoration Foundation custom Hoo-rags and similar merchandise on their website.

If you want to learn more about Coral Restoration Foundation and what they do you can check out their website here. Have a look around their website and check out their Reef Saving Swag store to help preserve our beautiful oceans and get some awesome custom Hoo-rags too. Or consider donating your time and helping them out if that’s an option. They have an entire section about that on their page. They might even give you a free Hoo-rag for doing so!

Love the Coral Restoration Foundation custom Hoo-rag and want to get some of your own? You can hit me up at Kody@hoorag.com, give me a call at 1.888.831.9344 extension 107, or fill out a form here. We offer hefty discounts for 501-c-3s and we’ll make sure you get something you’re happy to give out to both your donors and volunteers.

SixSpeed’s Custom Bandanas

Hey guys – this is Chris writing again about another one of my favorite clients and their custom bandana design!

Ben from SixSpeed reached out to us regarding getting some awesome BF Goodrich custom bandanas done for a 9-day off-road racing and rock-climbing event called King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, CA. With all the dust being kicked up and the brutal sun in the desert, it was important that people have something to cover their necks and faces to stay safe. SixSpeed needed their custom bandanas rushed out to the desert, and Hoo-rag was able to answer the call!

SixSpeed is an extensive marketing company that works with companies you may have heard of like Red Bull, Ford, Target, Michelin, and much more! To check out SixSpeed they can be found at SixSpeed.com, and check out their Instagram, Facebook, and Vimeo for some awesome pictures and videos of the events they and the companies they market for attend!

If you’re ever in need of some custom bandanas feel free to hit me up and I’ll make sure you’re taken care of. I can be reached at Chris@hoorag.com or give a call at 888.831.9344 extension 109.

Custom Bandanas For Fox Factory

Custom Bandanas Fox Factory

Kody here again with another featured client.  This week we’re looking at the rough, wild world of ATVs and automobiles with a little company by the name of Fox Factory.  We’ve been doing custom bandanas for Fox Factory for several years now, but they recently got in touch for another order.

Fox Factory is everywhere in this industry.  They make shocks for pretty much anything with wheels and even a few without. That includes cars, trucks, ATVs, snowmobiles, and even bikes.  They love our custom bandanas because their clients are outside getting dirty and making big ol’ dust clouds in the process.  That’s where our custom bandanas come in. They help keep the dust out of your lungs and the sun off your face during those long days of donuts and burnouts.

I know I’ve said it before, but it’s worth mentioning again. The best thing about custom bandanas is they’re not just promotional, but practical as well.  The Hoo-rag is not just another piece of plastic they put their name on.  It’s not one of half a dozen branded t-shirts that sit at the bottom of your drawer and never get worn. Attendees and employees tend to hold onto our customized bandanas and use them for anything from exercise to mowing the lawn on a Sunday afternoon.  This translates to more name recognition, more impressions, and more value for those valuable advertising dollars.

If you are interested in getting some custom bandanas (or any of our other products) for your own ATV or Motorcycle shop you can hit me up at Kody@hoorag.com, call me at 1.888.831.9344 ext 107, or fill out a form here.  I’ll make sure you get an awesome custom bandana that keeps both the sun and dust at bay while looking rad at the same time.
