Looking back to 2008 when I started the glove guru blog I didn’t realize the real value that it brings today to our customers old and new. Unlike a collection of news stories and magazine articles posted on our website (which we have), the glove blog brings a wealth of glove information all in one place and remains a permanent archive of old and new posts. It also contains links to external glove information.
Most people overlook the value of a good blog until they are searching for answer to a question about glove not easily found. It may not seem like a high number but about 30 people a day search our glove blog looking for specific information. My bet is that if you were one of those 30 people and you found what you were looking for, you were very happy you found the blog.
The blog contains title tags in a right hand navigation bar which can lead you directly to a specific category post or you can use the search bar for other specific glove content. In all, it remains a gold mine of good glove content.
Examples of popular posts are:
Obviously, not all of the posts are technical or data rich since we do share some fun glove stuff and even some celebrity glove information.
As a footnote, if you have a glove question and you cannot find an answer on the glove blog, please let us know. Most of the content is usually the result of phone calls from our customers so you will be helping others if you let us know.
Since our founding in 1996, we’ve always claimed to be “Your Source for Gloves”. What many of our customers tell us is that we are their preferred source for “Hard to find Gloves”.
Some of our hard to find gloves include gloves for children, special garden gloves, unique safety work gloves, hi-visibility gloves, casual and work touch screen gloves, chemical and cut resistant gloves, gas and oil work gloves, and fitness gloves just to name a few. Our fashion and formal gloves contain even many more to list here.
We suggest you look around on our web site (Gloves-Online) but we’ll show you a few below just for fun. My guess is you likely didn’t know some of these gloves even existed.
It’s always fun to learn more about our customers and their uses and yesterday,
I was able to assist one with a special request for a special event. They needed a few pair of our famous Whizard Stainless Steel Metal Mesh gloves but they needed them the next day. Unfortunately, we were out of stock on the size they needed but fortunately, my reliable colleague at Wells Lamont Industrial, Pat, came through at the very end of their work day and had them shipped overnight for us. He saved the day and the show.
What’s interesting is the various types of customers that use our gloves. This one is Caviar & Caviar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They are a gourmet purveyor of caviar and salmon products. They also feature a web site for on-line orders. Check them out.
I’m not surprised that Caviar & Caviar deal in delicacies and use the SS Metal Mesh gloves – these gloves are the ultimate delicacy in cut resistance in food processing.
In January of this year we celebrated our 20thYear Anniversary on the web.
Today marks our 8th Year Anniversary in launching our Industrial Web Site.
We developed our sister web site for those of you only interested in Industrial and Work gloves since it has easier navigation without traversing through our consumer gloves.
Although we offer the same gloves on the main GO Glovesweb site, the navigation on the GO Industrial web site only includes indexing for work gloves.
By popular demand we have added a new link on our Home Page which displays gloves that we ship for FREE!
It’s in the left hand navigation panel and I give you one guess to see what we’ve named it.
It’s updated daily, too.
You may not know but many of our gloves ship free so the listing is heavily populated. However, to limit your search you can use the keyword search box in the filter panel at the top of the listing to make it easier to find a glove. Just type a keyword or product ID in the block called keyword.
This is just another easy function we’ve added to our shopping cart to make it easier for you.
Thank you for your continued business,
The Glove Guru
This week we introduced a cool product. They are the new Ergodyne Chill-Its Super Evaporating Cooling Towels.
It’s true we are known for glove products that keep your hands warm but we decided to bring you a new line of products that keep you cool during these warm weather months. They fit like a glove as an accessory to our line of work related gloves. So, if you have to wear a work glove during the summer, at least we can keep you cool, too.
Actually, we sold almost over 1,000 towels in just two days this week. So obviously we made a wise decision to add these to our specialty line of gloves for you, our customer.
The super cool towels come in 5 colors and we offer FREE shipping, too.
Check them out at this link:
We’ve just added a new Maxiflex Glove model especially designed for the working woman. It’s also has an ultra-lightweight nitrile coated micro-foam grip coating and the nylon/lycra liner is infused with Aloe for superior comfort and day long freshness.
We’ve sold these gloves for over a decade now and they remain one of our most popular cut resistant gloves – and when I say cut resistant, there is no glove that is absolutely cut resistant like these. This is why many professionals in the food service industries among other industries turn to these gloves as the finale safety remedy.
We stock three (3) versions in sizes from XXS to XXL and they are ambidextrous.
