NEW YORK, NY, January 1, 2011 — ePromos Promotional Products, a leading online provider of customized apparel and promotional items, has been named a winner in Wearables magazine’s 4th annual Apparel Design Awards. This is the first time ePromos has won the award, which came in the category for “Best Eco-Friendly Apparel.”
ePromos’ winning submission was a stylish eco-friendly track jacket made from 60% recycled polyester. The fully custom jacket was made for employees of CLEAR, a high-speed mobile internet service provider. In addition to the eco-friendly aspect, the jacket received accolades for a trendy and fashionable design that seamlessly incorporated CLEAR’s branding.
“Besides being made of recycled materials, I would have to say the hip retail style is its best feature,” says Jennifer Feigenbaum, account manager at ePromos. “I wanted one for myself!”
Winners of this year’s Apparel Design Awards were first chosen as finalists by a panel of Wearables’ editors. In the second round of judging, readers voted on their favorite submissions for the best in each category: Apparel Imprint, Polo, Trendy Apparel, All-Weather Gear, Woven, Use of Color, Uniform/Work Outfit, Accessory, Performance Apparel, and Eco Apparel. A total of 2,487 reader votes were cast.
“We are really honored to win this award,” says Sheila Johnshoy, VP of Marketing. “Given the fact that our competition was mostly made up of apparel-only organizations, this award speaks to our creativity and versatility. I think it shows our ability to understand our clients’ needs and translate them into a valuable end result.”
