  What are Pop It Fidget Toys, and Why Are They So Popular Right Now?
Posted by: ddode445a - 4 hours ago - Forum: Welcomes and Introductions - No Replies

The latest toy craze is here, making waves in households across the country, and it's basically glorified bubble wrap. Featured recently in The New York Times, Pop Its have enthralled kids everywhere with their satisfying poppable blisters. Here's what you need to know about these flexible silicone toys and how they might benefit kids.

Where Pop It Fidget Toys Originated
The story of Pop It Fidget Toy begins with Theo and Ora Coster, a married couple from Israel. Over the years, they invented more than 190 games—including the face recognition game Guess Who?—and founded a company called Theora Design, according to the BBC. (Amazing fact: Theo was actually a classmate of Anne Frank.)
When Ora's sister died from breast cancer in the mid-1970s, she had a dream about a field of breasts. "Imagine a field of breasts, that you can press from one side, and then press from the other side," Boaz Coster, her son and co-C.E.O. of Theora Design, said when describing his mother's vision. Theo created a prototype, and it sat around for many years until the couple's sons sold it to Montreal-based games company FoxMind.
FoxMind manufactured the product in silicone, and it was marketed as a game called Last One Lost, a puzzle in which two players press the bubbles together, and the player who presses the last one loses. It debuted in 2013 and was not exactly a smash, but in 2019, it relaunched under the name Pop It! and hit Target shelves.

How Pop It Fidget Toys Took Off
The big moment of Pop It Fidget Toy has been linked to its appearance in a viral TikTok video. In the clip, a capuchin monkey-turned-influencer with almost 8 million followers named Gaitlyn Rae can be seen playing with a Pop It. The monkey's owner, Jessica Lacher, told the BBC: "Somebody sent her a pop-it for her birthday. … That was the first we had ever seen of them."
Gaitlyn's video launched a craze. You can now get Pop It-style knockoff toys—not licensed by FoxMind—in a variety of shapes and colors. You can find versions inspired by Peppa Pig, dinosaurs, unicorns, pineapples, and more.
Kids have been loving Pop Its during the pandemic and while learning remotely, according to The New York Times. "Especially in these times, they can be calming, they can be soothing," Adrienne Appell, a senior vice president at The Toy Association, told the outlet. "Even adults are enjoying them."

The Benefits of Fidget Toys
Experts say that Pop It Fidget Toy Animal might help kids focus, particularly if they struggle with ADHD. That's because the act of fidgeting allows the mind to be still and focus.
"I often tell parents that for their child, as for me, if the feet or fingers are still, it's a safe bet that the mind isn't," Thomas Beck, M.D., co-founder of the Winston Center for Attention, Language, & Learning tells Parents.com. "There will be more problems with focus, not less!"
But every child is different, as Yamalis Diaz, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and a clinical assistant professor at New York University Grossman School of Medicine, explained to The New York Times. She has treated two children with the same diagnosis, both of whom chose a Rubik's Cube as a fidget toy, and although one child could keep answering questions while he played with the toy, the other was entirely consumed by it and couldn't multitask.

The squid game is a story of 456 players risking their lives to become the last winner in a survival game with a prize of 45.6 billion won.
Netizens from Korea and China are arguing over the green gym uniform in Netflix’s original ‘Squid Game’.
On the 5th, Chinese media observers and others responded with the news that “China is claiming that the costumes in the ‘Squid Game’ were copied in Korea.”
In particular, Sungshin Women’s University professor Seo Kyung-duk took issue with an article posted on his Instagram the day before.
Observer Network criticized “Professor Seo has stimulated China many times over this agenda,” and said, “This time, he chose the wrong target.”
Previously, Professor Seo mentioned various cases of copyright infringement in China and argued that the green sportswear of Lee Jung-jae in ‘Squid Game Mask’ was sold in Chinese shopping malls with the word ‘China’ written on it.
Professor Seo analyzed in this article, “China seems to feel a great sense of crisis as Korean content such as Squid Game and Kingdom continues to attract attention from people around the world.” He also criticized China, saying, “China should learn respect for other countries’ cultures first.”
Chinese media claimed that the picture of the training clothes that China copied was a scene from the movie ‘Teacher, Like’ released in 2019, and that actor Wu Jing wore it as a gym teacher. The words ‘China’ are engraved on the tracksuit he is wearing.

Stanford professor Robert Sutton notes that the Pixar movie Cars was chosen from about 500 pitches, and at Skyline, the Originality Toys design studio that generates ideas for Fisher-Price and Mattel, employees submitted 4,000 new toy concepts in one year. That set was winnowed down to 230 to be drawn or prototyped, and just 12 were finally developed. The more darts you throw, the better your odds of hitting a bulls eye.
Though it makes perfect sense, many managers fail to embrace this principle, fearing that time spent conjuring lots of ideas will prevent employees from being focused and efficient. The good news is that there are ways to help employees generate quantity and variety without sacrificing day-to-day productivity or causing burnout.

  How Paper Cup Manufacturers Are Helping the Environment by Switching Away from Single
Posted by: ddode445a - 4 hours ago - Forum: Welcomes and Introductions - No Replies

Single-use plastic cups have always been criticized by organizations that want to tackle the plastic waste in the country. The reason for this criticism is that these cups cannot be recycled and they end up contaminating waste streams. As a result, more waste ends up in landfill. Recognizing the environmental footprint of single-use plastic cups, paper cups manufacturers have begun to switch away from them. They are helping to minimize the environmental footprint by encouraging the use of Paper Cups.

Paper Cups Can be Recycled
Paper cups are sourced from forests and are a more friendly option than plastics. These cups can be collected separately and trucked to facilities that can recycle them. Some lawmakers and companies argue that paper cups are hard to recycle because they contain a plastic lining that must be separated before the cup can be recycled. This is a totally ridiculous argument.

Paper cups be recycled properly if they are collected in special bins and then sent for recycling to the right facility. It is true that cups can end up in landfills if they are thrown into regular bins. However, if consumers properly put them into special recycling bins, they will be recycled by the facilities that possess the ability to remove the plastic lining from paper before recycling the cup.

If you often go shopping in shopping malls, you will find that Kraft Bags are widely used in all walks of life. For example, clothing stores and shoe stores we often go to are the most common places to use kraft paper bags. Even when you pack in some fast food restaurants and beverage stores, you will also use kraft paper bags as Takeaway Bags. Compared with plastic bags, the cost of kraft paper bags is higher. Why are so many enterprises willing to use kraft paper bags? One of the reasons is that more enterprises attach importance to environmental protection and regard environmental protection as a part of corporate culture, so they choose more environmentally friendly and renewable paper bags instead of plastic bags.

The rise of Insulation Bags in China can be said to have started in 2006, when McDonald's China gradually implemented a kind of kraft paper bag with thermal insulation performance in all stores to hold takeout food, replacing the use of plastic food bags. This move has also received positive response from other businesses, such as Nike, Adidas and other former large consumers of plastic bags have begun to use high-quality kraft paper bags to replace plastic shopping bags.

Of course, there are still some people in the market who have different opinions on whether kraft paper is environmentally friendly or not. Generally speaking, people who think kraft paper packaging is not environmentally friendly mainly focus on the manufacturing process of kraft paper and the selection of raw materials. They believe that the pulp of paper packaging is obtained by cutting down trees, causing damage to the ecological environment. The other is the paper in the production process will discharge a large number of sewage, causing water pollution.

Through comparison, it is not difficult to see that kraft Paper Bag is better than a plastic bag in environmental protection. Today, more and more attention is paid to environmental protection. An environmental protection kraft paper packaging bag has become the first choice of more and more manufacturers. If you want to contribute to environmental protection, you may as well take the kraft paper bag as the first choice for shopping or food packaging.

The automatic Sealing Machine can produce up to 32 vacuum gas flushing MAP containers, 28 vacuum skin packaging or 60 sealed-only trays per minute. It uses 304 stainless steel washing structure and tool-free disassembly of the vacuum chamber. The machine can handle film widths up to 18.75 inches and tray depths up to 4.3 inches. Film sealing, as well as MAP and vacuum skin packaging, can be achieved on the same sealing head. Options include aisle dividers, extended feeders with integrated automatic tray separators, filling and placement systems, cover applicators, aisle merging systems, and seal head storage carts.


A total of 21,000 cups were available to the 25,000 fans in attendance, offered as a sustainable alternative to single-use plastics in the live event space. According to Ball, 93% of Plastic Cups used each year end up in landfill, whereas its cups, it says, are recycled and returned to market in approximately 60 days.
According to research conducted by the corporation, 73% of consumers would opt for environmentally friendly containers if given the choice, with half willing to pay a premium. Ball Aluminium Cups have been designed to meet this growing demand for sustainable packaging.

  Wood Crafts
Posted by: ddode445a - 4 hours ago - Forum: Welcomes and Introductions - No Replies

Wooden Crafts are the artistic practice of shaping and decorating wooden objects. India is famous for wooden handicrafts. Skilled craftsmen of each state create handicrafts using wood that is available locally. The most common varieties used to make Indian handicrafts are teak, sheesham, sal, oak, mango, ebony and mahogany. Sandalwood, rosewood and walnut are the exotic varieties and are expensive and are used in producing fine pieces of furniture and decorative items. There has been a complete revival of the traditional and antique wood craft, owning to its uniqueness and demand in India and abroad. Indian artisans are experimenting with designs to create a blend of traditional and modern woodcraft. Each piece of Indian wooden handicraft is a labor of love, sweat, and patience, which no machine can replicate.
Wooden Toys and games are winning mass of quality these days. The wooden toys and games are put up in innovative as well as classical types that are energizing and thought-provoking for everyone to examine their power. A heavy number of attractively fashioned wooden toys and games will offer hours of amusement. They are designed with exquisitely workmanship and paragon for people of all age-groups.
Designed with expert workmanship, wooden toys have arrived at immense popularity and are perfect for people of all generation. The most widely playacted wooden toys and games are wooden chess and wooden carrom board. The wooden toys are carefully carved and attractively designed engaging a special place in lots of families. Wooden toys and games are meant for kids and adults both, and are perfect items for gifting purpose. They are handcrafted with extreme care to have an eye-catching visual aspect. They provide durable fun and are designed to germinate coordination and imagery power among children. The most widely played wooden toys and games are wooden chess and carrom-board. In order to make them easier to carry while traveling, they are available in wooden box which makes them excellent for gift items.

Festival Wooden Crafts are very popular. Many companies prefer to give away various wooden gift items as corporate gifts as they are durable and elegant. When wooden items are purchased in wholesale from suppliers or exporters, they prove to be very cost effective. In fact, when companies directly deal with the wooden gift manufacturers, they save a lot of money by avoiding the middlemen in suplly chain. However, wooden corporate gifts might be procured on cheap rates, they always look more expensive due to craftsmanship of the artisans as well as because wood itself is considered to be an expensive medium to make craft items. They can be offered on various occasions including retirement , transfer or anniversary etc. They help in encouraging and motivating people who really deserve to be appreciated. It helps in minimizing attrition rate as well as staff turn over. Wooden gift items cam also be customized as per the requirement of various companies.
Acrylic Charms are made with a solid, clear acrylic material that can be printed in full color and cut to any shape. Acrylic charms feature a small 0.085” (~2mm) cut hole for creating your own keychains, jewelry and more. These Acrylic Crafts have been a real hit! Acrylic charms consist of either one layer of acrylic board with an epoxy-covered image on top (or on bottom, if you prefer the acrylic layer over the front and epoxy on back), or two layers of board with the image sandwiched in between. The image itself can be one-sided or two sided.

Acrylic Rhinestones are so attractive! When we go shopping in department stores or walk on the road, we often see various shapes and sizes of rhinestones on shoes, bags, jewelry, and even displays. The rhinestones are colorful and shiny, and it is difficult to ignore them. Rhinestones are not diamonds; they are a simulation of diamonds. Since diamonds are natural and are formed under high pressure and high-temperature conditions deep in the earth, often taking a long time to form, they are scarce and very expensive. Rhinestones are artificial and have the sparkling, dazzling effect of diamonds. Therefore, when rhinestones could be manufactured in large quantities, people began to use rhinestones as decorations for jewelry, clothing and other accessories.

Forty years ago, the sending and receiving of Christmas Greeting Cards were one of the steps in declaring adulthood and establishing one’s own home. Part of becoming an adult was communicating the year’s events to family and friends.
In the Christmas letter that went with the card, there was some bragging about the good things in one’s life but it was also a vehicle to let people know about deaths or difficulties.
As Christmas became more about persuading consumers to buy, greeting card companies understood this. They grew their sales by offering greater varieties of cards, including boxed sets and charitable cards. Businesses began sending greeting cards to each other as a thank you for the work done together that year.

  Folding chairs: A comfortable seating option for space-crunched homes
Posted by: ddode445a - 5 hours ago - Forum: Welcomes and Introductions - No Replies

Folding Chairs are great for small spaces as they can be used for multiple needs. From dining to studying, a comfortable folding chair can be enjoyed anywhere and then tucked away for storage. Sleek folding chairs are a much better option than bulky wooden chairs in a space that is already short on storage. The folding feature also makes the chair easily transferable and portable. Depending on preference, one can choose between different materials for folding chairs, with plastic being one of the most popular material as it proves to be lightweight.
Reclining Chair offers a wonderful place to sit and relax and would be perfect next to a pool or on a back deck or patio. This folding chair transitions effortlessly from an upright seated position to reclining one and will provide utmost comfort to the user. This chair features a lightweight yet sturdy powder-coated steel frame. Its double bungee support system runs up one side and down the other, securely connecting the fabric to the frame. The chair offers reliable support and can accommodate up to 198pounds. The chair also features a weather-resistant Textilene fabric that offers comfortable breathability and ensures a comfortable, stay-cool seating surface that will not stick to the skin.
Add convenience to your home with this metal chair in black. Featuring a foldable design, this Folding Lounge Chair is easily portable and can be stored with ease when not in use. Ideal for use at breakfast tables or the dining table while hosting guests, this black chair will prove to be a comfortable option for varying needs. The mesh seating and backrest are soft and comfortable and will give a contemporary appeal to your home. This chair has a PP bush attached at the legs that protect the floor from scratches.

Summer is finally here. Now that restrictions have eased and the days are warmer, we will all be hoping to spend a bit more time outdoors, whether lounging or enjoying some alfresco dining. And with that comes the need for adequate (and stylish) Garden Furniture.
Whether you are planning to have some barbecues and outdoor parties this summer or just wish to be able to lounge around outdoors, there is no denying that outdoor furniture is a must for 2021, especially if you can find some weather-resistant pieces that mean you will not need to drag your indoor furniture inside every time a sudden downpour hits mid-barbecue.
Investing in Garden Cart does not have to be just a practical task, however. Take the opportunity to find stylish pieces, building out the aesthetic of your outdoor space and making it somewhere you really do want to spend time. But with that being said, it can be pretty hard to find the right stores and furniture to suit your garden, given just how many options there are to choose from. Thankfully for you, we know just where to look.
From tables and chairs, to sun loungers, fire pits, hammocks and sofas, so many of our favourite furniture stores have launched outdoor lines for this year that are perfect for taking your garden to the next level. Whether you only have patio space or are lucky enough to have some green space to work with, these are the best garden furniture retailers to start browsing.

Can you leave garden furniture outside?
In reality, the whole point of furniture that is specifically for your garden is that you should ideally be able to leave it outdoors during the warmer, sunnier months. Of course, whether or not this is possible does depend on the material of the furniture and its quality, as well as just how durable it is. Some Hammock Chair is designed more for aesthetic purposes and is best suited to keeping indoors and then dragging outside for your next garden party, but plenty, if not the majority, of garden furniture, is more than suitable to leave outdoors. Make sure to read the product information carefully before placing an order to check whether it's weatherproof, rust-resistant or weather resistant, and research the weight of the furniture so that it isn't easily blown over by the wind.

  Fastener Help Articles
Posted by: ddode445a - 5 hours ago - Forum: Welcomes and Introductions - No Replies

You may have heard of "Blue Bolt Coating", its real name is Whitford Xylan® Coating... and it isn't always blue. Many of our customers ask for the "Blue Bolt Coating", but what exactly is Xylan and when should it be used?

Xylan is a blend of fluoropolymers, engineering plastics and selected corrosion inhibitors which, when combined, create these characteristics in fasteners:

  • Low friction

  • Exceptional adhesion

  • Unusual resistance to wear and abrasion

  • Excellent corrosion resistance

  • Resistance to chipping

  • Resistance to the weather, sunlight and salt water
Xylan's versatility is best demonstrated as a coating for stud Bolts and nuts, where it provides unparalleled performance in ease of installation, corrosion resistance and ease of removal. It can be used on standard alloy steel nuts and bolts, or can be paired with stainless steel fasteners for even more benefits.
Xylan fastener coatings or "Blue Bolt Coatings" are typically specified in oil and waterworks applications.

A bolt’s function essentially boils down to applying a high enough Hose Clamps force that when external forces are applied, transverse movement and separation cannot occur. Using calibrated torque tools to tighten fasteners and apply that clamp force is far superior to going by the user’s judgement or feeling. Or, as one senior technician calls it “The One Grunt or Two Grunts Method”. Measuring torque alone, however, does not ensure a proper installation.
1. Torque is an indirect indicator of Tension.
Torque is the measurement of twisting force needed to thread the fasteners together.
2. Tension is the force that actually holds an assembly together. Put another way:
A bolt can stretch similar to a spring, as it becomes tightened once all the parts of the assembly are brought together.
The higher the torque applied to the fastener, the more tension is created as the bolt stretches.

If a bolt is like a spring and more torque equals more tension, why does not a certain amount of torque always result in the same amount of tension?
Though the relationship between torque and tension is linear, many other factors can affect this relationship. Some of these factors include surface texture, rust, oil, debris, material type, locking elements and human error. Because of these variables, tightening to a specific torque setting can create varied results in the field or on the assembly line.

General commodity commercial fasteners do not fall under the umbrella of products that would require a UL listing or ICC-ES report. There are three main governing bodies that cover specifications for fasteners. ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) covers primarily bolts and fasteners for construction applications. SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) covers fasteners for automotive, machinery, and OEM applications. ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) standards B18.2.1 and B18.2.1 cover dimensional tolerances for square and hex head bolts, Screws, and Nuts. Mudge Fasteners provides fasteners to these three sets of specifications (ASTM, SAE, and ASME). A fourth specification group that is also applicable is AASHTO (American Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials). AASHTO specifications are typically only called out on highway projects and many AASHTO designations can be directly converted to an ASTM equivalent.
ICC (International Code Council) is the primary governing body responsible for writing and maintaining building, plumbing, mechanical, and fire codes adopted by local and state municipalities, and the federal government. ICC-ES (International Code Council-Evaluation Services, Inc.) is the branch of ICC responsible for performing technical evaluations of building products, components, methods, and materials to ensure that they meet the requirements of the codes. This evaluation process culminates in an ICC-ES report that provides evidence that the evaluated product or system meets code requirements. However, in the case of most anchor bolts and fasteners, the applicable sections of the codes (International Building Code, International Residential Code, International Property Maintenance Code, Etc.) direct you to the ASTM specifications covering said Anchors or fasteners. As the ASTM specifications already cover anchor bolts and fasteners in detail, there is no reason for ICC to write their own specifications for these items. For the same reason, ICC-ES does not need to perform evaluation testing of anchor bolts or fasteners. As long as the bolts meet the applicable ASTM specification(s), they will meet the applicable Code section(s).

When you are shortening bolt or Threaded Rods with a hacksaw, you always mangle the threads at the sawn end, making it difficult to get a nut threaded onto it. Reader Larry LeMasters tip produces a much better ending. Thread two nuts onto the bolt at the cutoff spot, tighten them against each other, then saw against the shoulder to create a clean right-angled cut. Next, loosen the nuts and file a slight bevel around the end to clear burrs created by sawing. Then spin off the nuts to clean and realign the threads. Your shorter bolt will work just like a new one from the box.

There are several distinct types of fastener, which may be referred to as a pin. These include small headless nails, sharpened pins used for holding fabrics while sewing, attaching paper to pinboards and the like, and several types of mechanical fasteners. Pins are an unthreaded mechanical fasteners, which are designed to be inserted through preformed holes.

Lock Washers and vibration-resistant washers are designed to prevent a threaded fastener from loosening. The terms are often used interchangeably. However, there is a difference.
Lock washers resist torque or loosening for a given preload, and vibration-resistant washers maintain a more constant preload when there’s movement in a joint. A lock washer may include some teeth to increase friction or tabs to provide positive locking. A vibration-resistant washer, on the other hand, will be sprung so that as the joint moves, a relatively consistent preload is maintained on the fastener.

Rivets are mechanical fasteners with a plain unthreaded shaft that are inserted through holes to join two or more parts together. A permanently formed head at each end prevents the rivet from removal from the hole. The shaft prevents any radial movements of the components. Depending on the type of rivet, and its ability to support shear load, it can resist considerable forces. The heads prevent axial movements of the parts, although less force is supported in this way.

  • Vitamin A: 60% of your daily value
Greens powders often include high levels of vitamin C, which has been linked to healthy immune system function, protection against heart disease, and good skin health.


Potential Health Benefits
Because greens powders are made from dried fruits and vegetables, some important nutritional content like fiber is lost in the process. Greens powders are not a substitute for a well-balanced diet and cannot replace the nutritional benefits you get from consuming whole foods.
However, doctors say that greens powder can be a great way to supplement a healthy diet with a boost of extra vitamins and antioxidants.
Taking some vitamins in excess can lead to health issues or may interact with certain medications. It’s important to talk to your doctor before adding any nutritional supplements to your diet and choose a reputable brand of greens powder.

The nutrients in greens powders can contribute to potential health benefits including:

Healthy Blood Pressure
Minerals found in Medicinal Material like calcium and potassium are associated with good blood pressure management. In one clinical study, people who took one serving daily of greens powder experienced a decrease in both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Immune System Support
Greens powders contain high levels of vitamins and minerals associated with maintaining a healthy immune system. Vitamin A has anti-inflammatory properties that enhance immunity. For example, Selenium is found in most greens powders, and is proven to help the immune system fight infection.

Chronic Disease Prevention
The vitamins found in Feed Additives can reduce your risk of chronic diseases in the long term. Vitamins like C and K are potent antioxidants that fight cell-damaging free radicals.
This cell damage is known as oxidation and is linked to the development of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. One study found that a serving of greens powder taken daily reduced cell oxidation in participants by 30%.

Eye and Cognitive Health
Vitamin K found in leafy greens is associated with numerous health benefits including maintaining healthy blood vessels, lessening the risk of heart problems, and preventing bone loss with aging.

Posted by: meixue55 - 5 hours ago - Forum: Welcomes and Introductions - No Replies

Wooden Crafts are the artistic practice of shaping and decorating wooden objects. India is famous for wooden handicrafts. Skilled craftsmen of each state create handicrafts using wood that is available locally. The most common varieties used to make Indian handicrafts are teak, sheesham, sal, oak, mango, ebony and mahogany. Sandalwood, rosewood and walnut are the exotic varieties and are expensive and are used in producing fine pieces of furniture and decorative items. There has been a complete revival of the traditional and antique wood craft, owning to its uniqueness and demand in India and abroad. Indian artisans are experimenting with designs to create a blend of traditional and modern woodcraft. Each piece of Indian wooden handicraft is a labor of love, sweat, and patience, which no machine can replicate.
Wooden Toys and games are winning mass of quality these days. The wooden toys and games are put up in innovative as well as classical types that are energizing and thought-provoking for everyone to examine their power. A heavy number of attractively fashioned wooden toys and games will offer hours of amusement. They are designed with exquisitely workmanship and paragon for people of all age-groups.
Designed with expert workmanship, wooden toys have arrived at immense popularity and are perfect for people of all generation. The most widely playacted wooden toys and games are wooden chess and wooden carrom board. The wooden toys are carefully carved and attractively designed engaging a special place in lots of families. Wooden toys and games are meant for kids and adults both, and are perfect items for gifting purpose. They are handcrafted with extreme care to have an eye-catching visual aspect. They provide durable fun and are designed to germinate coordination and imagery power among children. The most widely played wooden toys and games are wooden chess and carrom-board. In order to make them easier to carry while traveling, they are available in wooden box which makes them excellent for gift items.

Festival Wooden Crafts are very popular. Many companies prefer to give away various wooden gift items as corporate gifts as they are durable and elegant. When wooden items are purchased in wholesale from suppliers or exporters, they prove to be very cost effective. In fact, when companies directly deal with the wooden gift manufacturers, they save a lot of money by avoiding the middlemen in suplly chain. However, wooden corporate gifts might be procured on cheap rates, they always look more expensive due to craftsmanship of the artisans as well as because wood itself is considered to be an expensive medium to make craft items. They can be offered on various occasions including retirement , transfer or anniversary etc. They help in encouraging and motivating people who really deserve to be appreciated. It helps in minimizing attrition rate as well as staff turn over. Wooden gift items cam also be customized as per the requirement of various companies.
Acrylic Charms are made with a solid, clear acrylic material that can be printed in full color and cut to any shape. Acrylic charms feature a small 0.085” (~2mm) cut hole for creating your own keychains, jewelry and more. These Acrylic Crafts have been a real hit! Acrylic charms consist of either one layer of acrylic board with an epoxy-covered image on top (or on bottom, if you prefer the acrylic layer over the front and epoxy on back), or two layers of board with the image sandwiched in between. The image itself can be one-sided or two sided.

Acrylic Rhinestones are so attractive! When we go shopping in department stores or walk on the road, we often see various shapes and sizes of rhinestones on shoes, bags, jewelry, and even displays. The rhinestones are colorful and shiny, and it is difficult to ignore them. Rhinestones are not diamonds; they are a simulation of diamonds. Since diamonds are natural and are formed under high pressure and high-temperature conditions deep in the earth, often taking a long time to form, they are scarce and very expensive. Rhinestones are artificial and have the sparkling, dazzling effect of diamonds. Therefore, when rhinestones could be manufactured in large quantities, people began to use rhinestones as decorations for jewelry, clothing and other accessories.

Forty years ago, the sending and receiving of Christmas Greeting Cards were one of the steps in declaring adulthood and establishing one’s own home. Part of becoming an adult was communicating the year’s events to family and friends.
In the Christmas letter that went with the card, there was some bragging about the good things in one’s life but it was also a vehicle to let people know about deaths or difficulties.
As Christmas became more about persuading consumers to buy, greeting card companies understood this. They grew their sales by offering greater varieties of cards, including boxed sets and charitable cards. Businesses began sending greeting cards to each other as a thank you for the work done together that year.
