New Product Announcement for 2018!

Clearwater, FL – We are pleased to announce the launch of 3 new items! Starting today, we will be offering In&Out Sunglasses, Retro frames in Kelly Green, and Retro 2-Tone frames in Kelly Green. The color Kelly Green is a vivid and deep green, reminiscent of opulent Irish forests. This frame color is perfect for when neon green isn’t quite suiting for your needs.

The In&Out Sunglasses are a modern twist on the standard Retro frames. These sunglasses maintain the timeless style of Retro, while also being in a new league of their own. You’re able to customize the arms of the In&Out Sunglasses with 1 color pad print, Full-Color print, or Full Arm Full-Color print. They are stylish enough to be worn time and time again, so the addition of arm printing will ensure that you and your logo are recognized.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions. We thank you for your continued support, and cannot wait to unveil what’s up our sleeves for 2019!

New Rasta and Reggae Designs added to online catalog

The Rastafari movement is a very serious philosophy that takes much of its direction from the Bible. It is a spirituality movement that arose in the 1930s in the Americas and became particularly popular in Jamaica. It is sometimes described as a religion but is considered by many who practice it to be a way of life. Members of the Rastafari way of life are known as Rasta’s or the Rastafari.

To celebrate the Rastafari movement, LogoLenses has added some new Rasta designs to their online catalog. Every pair of LogoLenses can be customized to specification and there are a variety of frame colors to choose from including black, white, neon blue, neon green, neon orange, neon pink, red, purple, neon yellow, neon purple, royal blue, neon coral, transparent, gold and silver.

Also central to Rastafari is a belief that reflects a radical identification of man in God, God in man, and the unity of all beings. “One Love” is a common reference to this belief. Some Rastafari do not claim any sect or denomination, and thus encourage one another to find faith and inspiration within themselves. The Rastafari way of life encompasses the spiritual use of cannabis, also known as marijuana, and the rejection of the degenerate society of materialism, oppression, and sensual pleasures.

Some of the new designs on the LogoLenses catalog include cannabis leaves as well as the “One Love” message. Additionally, there are designs that celebrate Reggae music, made popular by the success of Jamaican singer/songwriter Bob Marley. LogoLenses can also create new designs for customized glasses. There is a team of designers on hand to help develop the perfect design for every event.

The red, yellow, and green colors of Rastafari are pretty ubiquitous in the movement. These colors all have symbolic significance in Rastafari beliefs. The yellow color is said to refer to world treasures. The red is symbolic of blood of all living things. The color black is an obvious reference to the black people who originally started the Rastafari movement in order to return to their roots, and the green is related to the abundant plant life of their native homeland.

LogoLenses can customize sunglasses to include any message and any color desired. Additionally they offer imprinted sunglasses with personalized messages on the side arms of the frame.  LogoLenses can help make a music festival, cultural fair or any special event more personal with customized shades.

Sweet Dreams

Sisters Mary Kay Oney-Hatt and Kathy Burke, had a dream…literally.

In early 2008, Kathy was living in Ohio working at a factory. She had a dream one night that she was working in Florida and was running a bakery.

“I was always the “Cookie Aunt” for years, she said. “My nieces and nephews loved my cookies and I’d always enjoyed baking.” After her dream, Kathy called her sister Mary Kay, who lived in Florida.

Sweet Ida Mae’s Bakery with Mary Kay Oney-Hatt and Kathy Burke

During that phone call they realized they’d had the same dream, only in Mary Kay’s dream, she’d gone to culinary school.

 

“We were also both reading the same motivational book that encourages people to follow their passions in life” she said. “I never thought I’d quit the factory, but after the dream and the book, I thought ‘Gosh, I think this is what I’m supposed to be doing with my life’.”

Mary Kay was laid off shortly thereafter due to budget cuts and she came to the same conclusion. “I’m going to do what I always wanted to do.” she said, and started planning.

“I graduated from The Art Institute of Tampa at the end of 2008 and we started planning our business then,” Mary Kay said. “We planned for about a year and one day, an opportunity just fell in our laps.”

Kathy had seen a bomb squad truck that was for sale in Ohio. The ladies told the seller they were interested and, two weeks later, Mary Kay flew to the Midwest to get things taken care of for Kathy’s move south.

The ladies packed up the truck with Kathy’s possessions and drove south. “It took us some time to get the truck gutted and fixed up inside” Mary Kay explained. “We decorated it and put in carpet and we started baking.”

The sisters craft their baked goods at home and also use a friend’s bread bakery and then load the truck. Their business, Sweet Ida Mae’s Bakery Food Truck can be found at farmer’s markets, food truck rallies and other special events. “That’s when we found Logolenses and ordered some customized glasses to wear,” Mary Kay said. “The reception of the glasses was amazing. They were a real complement to our business and we had several people asking us where we’d gotten them.”

“Then we started to get questions about if people could order them from us” Kathy said. “So we became resellers with Logolenses.” The ladies designed glasses for weddings, bridal shows, and even designed some for the City of Dunedin for their Halloween event.  “We’ve sold them at music festivals, art festivals, pretty much anywhere there are groups of people and everyone just loved them. It’s a truly different way to advertise our company” she said.

“We’ve had people approach our bakery truck and say ‘But, I don’t eat sweets’ and now that we have the “I ♥ Wine” and “Let’s Party” glasses, we have an alternative item to offer them” Mary Kay explained. “Plus, you can create anything you want. Logolenses has a team of designers that have worked with us several times to make sure we love the glasses. You can choose from several different frame colors, fonts styles, even background artwork.”

Kathy designed some glasses with her mother’s picture on them for an upcoming family reunion. She also made some for the rest of her family members.

“Their customer service department guided me every step of the way, from design to production completion. Logolenses is great and we plan to use them a lot more for some of our upcoming events” she said.
