It was in the summer of 2015, that I started gaining momentum as a Blogger for Hire, and blogging for business. I was delighted to be nominated as one of the Top 30 Mom Blogs of Vancouver last year which culminated at an amazing summer party at apparel designer Nicole Bridger’s Studio. and through that I have made many friends, connections and learned a tonne about blogging for brands. Blogging allows you time for online networking, but also to connect with other writers and businesses for work and play, that have the same desire for authentic connections with the people that they do business with.
I was thrilled when a few weeks ago, a local Surrey company, Bravo Apparel, noticed my blogging efforts and reached out to me. They are a Canadian owned uniform supplier that specializes on making custom school uniform and team sports jersey. They do work wear, promotional products, and have a large selection of corporate apparel available. In touring their beautiful facility, I really felt a similarity in values with the owner of the company, as he and his wife started their small business in their home and worked around having small kids as many of us work-at-home parents have done. They have now worked their way up to a beautiful store front and manufacturing space.
My husband represents a few brands in the dental industry, and so his summer uniform is often a branded shirt and dress pants. Bravo Apparel offers embroidery, heat press and screen printing services, and so I was able to get him some new branded shirts to try out their products and services. It is great to have a local connection that put a lot of heart and dedication into creating and providing great products. You can read more about their embroidery and screen printing offerings on their resources page.
