"G'Emmy, G'Emmy more...G'Emmy more!"
Well the Emmy's are fineto and there is a plethora of luxe SWAG news to report. Interestingly enough the real SWAG story of the EMMY's is the EMMY award itself.
Hand Cast 24K Gold Plated the Emmy award is one of the most coveted, respected and sought after TV awards of significance in our lifetime. Actresses and actors alike give performances of a lifetime just to be recognized and sit this little "lady of grace" on the mantel.
RS Owens creator of the luxe EMMY and OSCAR, is one of the most prestigious award makers in the industry today. Having seen both awards with my very own eye's, they really are a breathtaking sight. In the presence of these awards you can literally close your eyes and smell the Chopard Diamonds and hear the evening gowns whispering by. In business for over 60 years RS Owens prides themselves on creating unique award concepts totally catered around your event. I'm also very proud to mention that RS Owens is one of my manufacturers and when I source awards for events I go to the best!

Election Swag

OMG, to say I have seen it all is an understatement! Politics plays a large role in the history of SWAG if you think about it. Think back to every campaign from your Jr.High running mates to McCain & Obama you know that posters, buttons and T-shirts are staples.

(I hate to sound like Andy Rooney the head-grouch) but "it's a real sign of the times" the presidential campaign 2008. Who knew the thong you wear or the throw pillow you rest your head on could hold the key to your Republican or Democratic vote.

It's interesting being a Gen X'er myself seeing campaigns progressively growing with the times. Reaching out for a younger target audience, I suppose it's all about the way you market yourself and Presidential SWAG has indeed graduated to be young, hip and trendy!
