Two years has passed since a sports marketing group appeared on my door step with some primitive but functional gloves that made a lot of noise when you clapped your hands together. They were very excited about their invention but disenchanted by the failure by a few glove manufacturers making promises to develop a stadium ready glove.
Typically, I was enlightened by their enthusiasm and excited about the concept.
In time for the baseball playoffs, I managed to tweak “their” concept using hardened baseball bat wood glued to a weight-lifting glove to the gloves they market (and we make) today. (Enlarge image or go to their web site below)
Mission accomplished: a low cost; universal size; comfortable glove that can make more noise than anyone can imagine (or bear to listen to) and intimidate the heck out of opponents on the field or in a stadium.
If you need some noise from your fans, contact the guys at Home Team Handz. Just don’t tell them the Glove Guru sent you. They’re pretty busy.
Gloves usually top everyone’s Christmas list, except they’re also great for protecting those family heirlooms.
One of our largest customers, Cartier (yes, that Cartier, the renowned French jeweler and watchmaker), even has us make their own brand of gloves for use in their jewelry and watch showrooms and vaults. Cartier is one of many jewelers for whom we make custom Logo Gloves. Another notable customer is Tahiti Pearl Market. The list goes on.
My point: Cotton and nylon knit gloves protect your jewelry, silverware, fine china and crystal from finger prints, scratches, and destructive and corrosion causing body oils. No one takes pleasure in seeing smudges on fine jewelry in a showcase – so why would it be acceptable in your china closet? Gloves are also great for handling important photographs and other archival media.
