With collecting trading pins, you get to meet a lot of enthusiasts as well. These people are also out to meet other collectors to be able to buy, sell, or trade with them in order for their collection to grow more or to be able to get a complete set of pins of a certain theme. When interacting with other collectors, etiquette is always necessary. This ensures that each interaction will be smooth and proper. Here are a few tips to remember when you start talking with other collectors:

•Finding out who collects trading pins during special events is fairly easy. Most collectors would show off their pins by wearing them on their clothes, vests, or hats so that they can “showcase” their goods. If you want to get their attention, just politely call them and then point out a pin that you’re interested in.

Trading pins•When pointing out a pin that you want, make sure that you don’t touch the pin out of respect to the owner; you can instead ask them to bring the pin closer so you can inspect it further.

•Make sure that the pins that you bring along for trade are undamaged, presentable, and clean.

•If you like a certain pin but you don’t have all the information about it, you can ask the owner of the pin for more detail. You can also ask other collectors for their opinion.

•If you are not sure of the conditions that the collector you’re talking to has set during the trade, you may politely call it off; you must also not force a fellow collector to agree with the conditions that you would place during a trade.

•When you point out a pin that you want, make sure to present a pin that would have an equal value that you’ll want to give in exchange. You should also have your own collection readily available so that the collector that you’re talking to might find something interesting among the pins that you have and suggest another trade.

•If you see two collectors that are already talking about a trade, do not interrupt them; wait until they are finished before you approach them.

•A handshake and saying, “Thank you,” are all that you’ll need to do to properly end the trade.

If you are far away and not able to attend trading events, it is still possible to make a trade with other collectors, thanks to the Internet. There are online message boards and forums dedicated for those that collect trading pins. Some even show their collections on such online hubs. If you are interested in a certain pin, you can send them a private message or an email to let them know you’re interested.

Your behaviour online must still be observed. Unlike talking face-to-face, it is harder to show your emotion with the use of words, and some might misinterpret your use of words. There are few things that you must keep in mind when making an online trade:

•Do not use all-caps when writing a message, as this will look like you are shouting or being angry.

•Patiently wait for a reply from a person that you’ve sent a message to. Only do a follow-up message if you don’t get a reply from him after a few days.

•If someone sends you a message, try to reply to him as soon as you can.

•If you see an interesting pin and you’re not sure of its value, try to ask other collectors that might be online as well. It is also best to ask about the reputation of the collector that had posted the pin.

Whether it is an online trade or face-to-face, remember to behave properly with collectors of trading pins so that everyone will have a good time and trading will remain hassle-free.

Lapel pins are among the most popular accessories widely used as ornament and as recognition for an affiliation. They are custom-made, and have been used way back (decades ago) as a political symbol and for other cultural purposes.

Custom PinsSince custom lapel pins are handmade for every specific design, the creation process is a tedious procedure. First, a machine is used to do the molding of the stamp. It forms the design on a metal surface. Next, the outline is done by cutting the edges of the pin. It usually depends upon the intricacy of the design, like a center hole or irregularly shaped edges. After some initial finishes on the metal plate, a solder is attached at the back of the piece. Once it’s done, the plating process is done by soaking the material in plating liquid. This is immediately followed by the polishing and coloring. In some cases, the pin is coated with epoxy liquid as final touch.

Custom lapel pins also come in different types. For instance, the pin-on-pin type provides a 3-D look with a pin immersed on top of another. A bobble pin uses a spring and is upturned. There are even pins that can turn a full 360, called spinner pins.

They usually depict the year of graduation and name of school, for easier recognition and to serve as an emblem for the batch. Apart from rings and other jewelry, pins are easier to use and can be given to all, regardless of gender.

• Lapel pins are also the best keepsakes when it comes to big events. They are more durable and last longer than other alternatives.

• Most custom pins are used to show support on a league or sports team. Many manufacturers sell a lot to fans and supporters during game seasons.

• For inaugurations and induction of new members, lapel pins are staple accessories. It is usually given to new members of an organization which gives a sort of status symbol for the new recruit.

• For identification purposes, pins are also used in team building and other group activities. They can also be used for conventions and other occasions that require identification of attendees.

• Lapel pins are also used as souvenirs during birthdays, anniversaries, baptismal or even weddings.

• Pins can also be used as an alternative to the traditional IDs at work. An example would be in the case of nurses, whose names, position and department are usually written on a lapel pin for easier identification.

High quality lapel pins can be custom-made and ordered online. You can search for lapel pin stores that have been providing quality output, with fully-equipped tools and a great team of trained professional artists. These businesses can be readily reached through e-mail or phone. Just don’t forget to compare prices and packages. Sometimes, you can get huge discounts depending on the scale of orders. The more items to be created, the less marginal cost it would incur.

A Guide to Loading your Portable Storage Containers when Moving

Posted by Bradley Underwood on September 30th, 2014 — Posted in Logistics

  Tags: , , , , ,

You will seldom find a person who loves packing. Even if it is just for simple trips, loading your bag with the clothes you need without exceeding the maximum weight allowed in most airlines can be a bit of a challenge. Therefore, just imagine how stressful it is to pack your house when you are moving. You will not be dealing with just a few clothes anymore but with all your furniture, appliances, utensils, and others. This is why some families opt to hire moving companies; but for those who are on a budget, doing the packing yourself and renting one of those portable storage containers to haul your belongings is most the practical choice.

The good thing with portable storage containers is that they are very spacious, thus allowing you to bring all your belongings with you in one trip. That will save you some fuel money and a lot of time, as compared to going back and forth for several trips. The large space, however, does not mean that you can willingly place all your belongings inside as you please. If the storage container is not packed properly, you risk the chance of damaging your items or even risking your safety as you drive that huge container to your new location. For your guidance, here are some tips that can be extra helpful for you when loading portable storage containers.

Prepare Individual Items

Portable storage containersYou need to pack the items properly before loading them inside the container. Delicate items should be covered with pads to prevent them from getting scratched or broken. This is especially true for furniture that are made of glass. Even wooden furniture must be wrapped with paper or stretch wraps because you certainly do not want to see them later on with long and deep scratches. For small items, place them in boxes that are tightly secured with tape or rope. Label them to make it easy for you to arrange them in your new home later on.

Prepare the Container

You may want to place an extra layer of cover on the floors and walls of the container. Try using newspapers to provide that extra padding. You will be pushing the heavy furniture on the floor when you load them in and that padding can protect them from damages.

Bulky Items First

Place the bulky items in first. These include your refrigerator, the bed, the couch, large cabinets, washing machine, and others. In the spaces between these items, you can wedge in your packed boxes to prevent those bulky ones from moving or sliding. Making use of those small spaces will also enable you to pack more into the portable storage containers. Just remember to use the boxes with non-fragile items inside them, such as boxes of blankets or clothes. After all the bulky ones have been loaded, you can proceed with the medium ones like the chairs or tables. Again, place boxes on the free spaces to keep the furniture from moving during the drive and for cushion.

Heavy Boxes on the Bottom

When all that is left to pack are the boxes, make sure that the heavy ones are at the bottom of the container with the lightest and most fragile at the top. Even out the weight at all sides. That means that if you placed a fifty-pound box on the left, do that on the right too. To prevent boxes that contain fragile items from sliding, you can use ropes to attach them to heavier boxes. You can also strap some of the boxes, furniture and appliances to the container itself as there are hooks or holes at the sides that are meant for this purpose.

After everything has been loaded, lock the door properly. You may want to tug at it to ensure that it is secure or your belongings may start falling off while you are driving. As you can see, with a plan and a system, packing an entire house can be stress-free especially if you give yourself ample time to do this.

Essential Offers to Check in VPS Server

Posted by Cameron Perkins on August 29th, 2014 — Posted in Web hosting

  Tags: , , , , , ,

Online entrepreneurs requiring scalability should invest in a VPS server for their server and hosting needs. With today’s number of hosting services, the task of finding hosting companies is a lot easier. Signing up with the best hosts, however, requires checking several characteristics like the following for clients to receive exceptional services:

Disk Capacity

Server disk capacity can be as small as 10 gigabytes (GB) for basic plans. Advanced plans have 20 GB up to 120 GB disk space, but with higher charges than basic plans. Nevertheless, better disk capacity offers flexibility and scalability for companies predicting immediate growth or increased demands on their server needs. The right disk capacity allows companies to store more website information and even design them according to their branding requirements.

Choosing the right disk capacity depends on website’s purpose. Lower disk capacity will suffice if the website is meant for providing information alone through text contents. Having a more interactive website or being a source of downloadable information may require higher disk capacity to house every downloadable file.

Processor and Memory Resources

Resources are often described as the combination of processor memory speed. They serve as the core of server’s performance and contribute to the faster website creation and development. Faster resources mean optimized performance to aid maintenance or applying regular updates when new files must be uploaded on the website.

A good VPS server offers more than a gigabyte of memory and running on the latest processors produced by top manufacturers. Combining these high profile resources assure streamlined performance that many clients concentrating on scalability require.

Bandwidth Limit

VPS serverBandwidth limit allows visitors to access a website. It refers to data exchanges or transfers from the server to the visitors’ web browsers. It’s imperative to find out bandwidth limit because going beyond the allocated limit means the website and files won’t be accessible.

General bandwidth limit ranges from 1500 up to 3000 GB. Apart from the limit, hosting companies may also offer metered and unmetered bandwidth. Unmetered bandwidth refers to using as much bandwidth as a user can without being charged of overage fees. However, clients must understand that this still comes with certain bandwidth limitations, but the benefit is that clients save money from overage fees.

Billing Option

VPS server hosting providers must present numerous billing options to match clients’ budgets and other financial requirements. In general, a client may pay monthly or yearly, but several companies may also have six-month contract in their services. Different billing options allow clients to commit in hosting services without burdening their pockets.

Different billing options allow clients to test the service provider and see if they match their server demands or not. Shorter contract terms give clients an idea whether the service is suitable for them or if they’ll get more from another company.

Cancellation Details

Cancelling a VPS server plan is possible as long as specific policies are followed accordingly. For instance, cancellation may be free of charge as long as the client completes the term stated in their contracts. Proper research, however, will show that some companies don’t charge early cancellation fees for their clients for customer satisfaction.

Money-back Guarantee

Dissatisfied clients want to make sure they’ll receive money-back guarantee from the service provider to compensate for the inconvenience. Look for a company with money-back guarantee and the number of days or months when a client will be eligible for refunds.

Numerous VPS server plans available make it easier for you to find a service provider that you’re comfortable dealing with. Keep these points in mind and use them when you shop for a hosting company, regardless if you’re a new user or you’re switching to another service provider.

The Secret Implementation Strategies SEO Companies Use To Rank Content

Posted by Edwyn Gray on August 25th, 2014 — Posted in seo

  Tags: , , , , , , ,

There is a lot of great content on the internet right now. Not all of it is going to be found unfortunately. Too often there are great blogs, articles, and updates going through the internet at break neck speeds and despite a great deal of work that is done to create them, there is nothing that can be done to help give them an audience. For many people the world of internet marketing is not the solution that they’d hoped for, as it takes a lot of time to implement the correctly strategy to gain leverage within the world of marketing in today’s framework. You may find that you are able to chase a great deal of it, but you will not be able to traverse across a great deal of the platforms that are going to help you gain leverage within today’s framework, at least not alone. Without the assistance of one of the many SEO companies working within this world of marketing, you could kiss the engagement of an audience goodbye.

SEOThis is not to say that there are no exceptions to the rule. There are definitely some exceptions that are going to be met with great applause, and those are iconoclasts amidst search results. For some reason, despite algorithmic changes, and despite a great deal of complications coming to the world of marketing, there are still companies that get a lot of infrastructure within search results and they don’t really work within any secrete implementation strategy. For the rest of the internet, however, a great deal of work has to go into ranking, or else nothing really will go forward.

The Start of Content

Great content is written, published and then forgotten. That’s the biggest mistake that people make when they stumble across something grand and jot it down on the internet. If you have a great piece of content and you need the world to see it, you will need to figure out how to get more eyeballs on it in the framework that is available to you. This means that you will not want to just publish it and run. The difference between what you and many others do in regards to content design is simple, they publish it on places that aren’t ranked very high. That doesn’t mean that you should stop blogging, but rather, you should focus on taking your “A” material to a higher ranking.

When SEO companies start to work with better content or they have clients that need help with traffic generation, they build content elements that are dispersed across the internet. This allows more marketing to be shared throughout a variety of pages and elements. If one were to isolate just one corner of the internet, nothing would happen, and things would still fall apart. It’s for this reason that it’s important to look at starting content and then leaving it alone. Stockpiling it may work out better than just rushing to publish a blog post and hope that people will see it.

The Pendulum Effect of SEO Companies

At one end of the pendulum, there is content. The design of content starts and it’s then taken into a large stockpile. Most companies that are working with content management go forward to create upwards of 30 days’ worth of postings ahead of time. That allows them to move forward with the right overall elements and creates a market share that is hard to lose out on. When the pendulum swings, links are created and a lot of other elements are placed into the framework, giving off a great deal of traffic that can then be used for ranking and more.

The analogous explanation made above may sound a bit convoluted ,but if you think about it, most content that is great online is only placed in one area and then forgotten. Companies that specialize in traffic generation, ranking and more, look at that and create a new way to publish it. They focus on the many moving pieces and implement the right elements to gain market share over time. You may not understand all of this at first glance, but you may want to look at all the different elements that go into creating blogs, updates and more.

Balance is The real Secret

The balancing act that companies pull is the real secret to marketing today. You will find that that there are a lot of companies that are working within a certain framework of balance. They are creating market share through the world of balancing link generation, content marketing, and a lot of other elements. If you want to emulate what they are doing, you will need to work within a variety of different elements moving forward. Only when you focus on building up the right content will you get the balancing act together and will gain leverage overall.

There is a lot of conjecture in the world of SEO, but when you’re dealing with a professional, you will see that it can all get streamlined to focus on the end result, and that’s why it’s imperative that you look into hiring a professional that knows what they are doing when it comes to the modern world of marketing.

China as the Source of Fake Discount Golf Clubs

Posted by Dale Ferguson on June 27th, 2014 — Posted in Sports

  Tags: , , , , , ,

China has a long-standing, infamous reputation of being the prime source of many fake products that are circulated throughout the world. This phenomenon is called shanzhai, or “mountain stronghold”. Shanzhai nowadays refers to under-the-radar companies that produce cheap imitations of practically everything while evading taxes and government regulations.

Even golf clubs are not safe from being given the bootleg treatment. While there are other countries such as Vietnam and Thailand that are also sources of counterfeits, China is still the undisputed leader in manufacturing bogus “discount golf clubs” under the radar. More often than not, they also maintain websites in order to sell those fakes. Those sites are written in poor, broken English; and their domain registration information either reflects Chinese contact information or made-up foreign addresses despite their claims that they are based in the US or Europe.

There is a reason why fake versions of clubs that will be officially released soon will turn up a few days or weeks before the actual release dates of the real things.

Taiwan was formerly a coven for underground manufacturers to produce fake goods. But when the Taiwanese government started imposing stringent intellectual property laws to get rid of fakes and upped the wages of the country’s workers, those underground manufacturers moved to mainland China, where they now mass-produce fakes at a rapid pace using lots of underpaid workers. And since many golf manufacturers outsource their production lines to China, there is a high chance that a Chinese worker will steal a blueprint and leak the secrets hidden within it to shanzhai factories. To add to the confusion, counterfeit sellers will always parade their clubs as special “discount golf clubs fresh from the OEM”. Even worse, they will take pictures from either the sites or the marketing materials of real manufacturers and post them on their sites as if nothing happened. The fakers will roll out their fake clubs just to get rich quick, considering their low salaries.

dgc-2As the fakers are getting better in their game, they will perfect the art of copying the copyrighted designs from major manufacturers without any glaring mistakes at all. This results in what is called the “super-fake”. The super-fake phenomenon was first discovered in fake luxury handbags that do their best to imitate their more expensive authentic counterparts in every nook and cranny using high-quality materials. It will only be a matter of time before the fakers produce super-fake gold clubs at higher prices compared to low-quality fakes.

While golf manufacturers are more aggressive in stamping down fake versions of their products, some Chinese law enforcers are adamant to clamp down on fake golf clubs as well as other fake golf gear and apparel. These items do not get much attention compared to fake consumables such as cigarettes and medicines, since golf is mainly a sport played by the rich.To add insult to injury, the Chinese have a twisted sense of practicality. If they are chosen between two similar things that have a huge difference in price, they will go for the much cheaper thing, even if it is a fake.

And due to the rapid production of fake “discount golf clubs”, unimaginative merchants from the US and Europe will buy them in bulk and sell them on eBay or on their own sites. Therefore, it always pays for a prospective golfer to always read the horror stories of fellow golfers who have been duped by those “entrepreneurs”.

In the end, buying fake discount golf clubs from China damage the reputation of the manufacturers of real golf clubs. As long as the fakes circulate, they will deceive unaware buyers into blaming the manufacturers themselves for producing supposedly inferior versions of their clubs.
