Bringing 20 Years of Experience to Houston

ASHoustonFB

After serving customers in the Texas remotely from their Louisiana headquarters, the team at Action Specialties is laying roots in Texas, establishing their second physical location in the heart of Houston.

Action Specialties Houston Texas

For the last 20 years, Action Specialties has been Louisiana’s premier, full-service destination for printing, apparel, garment decoration and alteration, and safety products for industries of all types and sizes. Serving both local and international customers from their 40,000 square headquarters in New Iberia, Louisiana, the company has built a reputation for knowledge, selection, and professionalism. In addition to an outstanding record of professional service, Action Specialties has also set a precedent for investment in the communities in which they serve, organizing grass-roots fundraisers and community reinvestment initiatives.
The new home of Action Specialties’ Texas Sales Team boasts a state of the art show room featuring digital catalogs and presentation capabilities as well as a wide selection of products and apparel that is designed to help customers build visual branding equity while complying with the ever-evolving nature of their respective industries. With unparalleled selection and manufacturer access, Action Specialties offers a unique value proposition to its customers: selection of products combined with the expertise and knowledge that only comes with 20+ years of experience.

“We’ve been in business for a long time,” commented Action Specialties’ President, Lenny Lipari. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to serve our Texas customers face to face instead of just over phone and email. We’re looking forward to being a part of the Houston community and bringing our knowledge and expertise to help our Texas customers build their brands.”

The Houston Showroom and Sales Office is located near Houston’s Energy Corridor, at 9000 Clay Road, Suite 106. Come in, check out our products on display, and meet the team. We’d love to see and hear from all of our Texas customers!

Keep on Jeepin’ On

Posted in: Case Study, Monogramming, Press Room on March 23rd, 2015

Flexible Merchandise Solutions

THE OPPORTUNITY
Louisiana Jeepers is one of the leading philanthropic automotive hobby clubs in the state of Louisiana. Jeep owners are proud of their vehicles, and are equally as proud of the clubs which they choose to be a part of. In the case of Louisiana Jeepers, the club is a recognized non-profit organization. As with most non-profit entities, funds are typically tight. The group focuses on giving back to the community, but also must maintain a focus on the dues-paying members of the organization. The members of the club come from all walks of life and are comprised of members of all age and demographic groups. For this reason, creating merchandise that is universally appealing to all of the members can be quite daunting.

THE SOLUTION
Luckily for the Louisiana Jeepers, Action Specialties has incredibly low minimums for monogrammed and embroidered items. Once your logo is set up to stitching specifications, you’re good to go! The merchandise coordinator for the group selected a number of appealing styles with all of the members in mind, and Action Specialties quickly stitched their logos on those caps. The end result was a wide range of logoed apparel with something to offer each member of their club, no matter their age or style preference!

200 Feet of Wrap!

Posted in: Case Study, Press Room, Vinyl Decals and Signs, We Did That! on March 20th, 2015

Over 200 Feet of Wrap Material on One Boat!

THE OPPORTUNITY
When your weekend getaway is a 46-foot nautical monster, not just any finish will do! When weighing the options of the exterior finishings of boats of this size, one must take many variables into account. The prolonged, almost perpetual exposure to the elements leaves the hull at the mercy of the sun. Paired with the exposure to the wearing waters of the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, many options for decorating these vessels are immediately ruled out. Aside from the material considerations, the sheer size of the watercraft cannot be understated.

THE SOLUTION
Boat Wrap 1
Knowing that the choice of print media would have to be both durable and worthy of display on a boat with as much appeal as this custom watercraft, Action Specialties put together a plan to apply over 200 feet of specialized, heavy duty print wrap. Of course, the design of such a project would prove to be just as important as the application itself. With all of these important factors in mind, Action Specialties assembled the team of certified wrap application specialists and got to work! We placed more than 200 feet of vinyl wrap material to the sides of this massive vessel. That’s nearly 20 stories!

As if this vessel wasn’t already a spectacle to behold, the end result was a clean, polished finish with beautiful graphics worth of this masterfully crafted boat. We are thankful for having had the opportunity to put our special touch on this incredible watercraft!

Hero Hunts Hits the Road

Posted in: Vinyl Decals and Signs, We Did That! on March 19th, 2015

Action Specialties Helps Get Hero Hunts Seen

If you aren’t familiar with the incredible work that Hero Hunts does, imagine a non-profit like the Wounded Warrior Project, but local! They offer guided hunts and expeditions to US war veterans who might not otherwise ever get that opportunity. This includes those injured in the line of duty. When the group approached us to help them decorate their new transport trailer, we know that we had to do something that would turn heads on the highway! We went with a brushed aluminum style decal layout that was effective, and more importantly, Highly Visible! These guys deserve all the recognition in the world, and we were happy to be given the opportunity to help them spread their name!

Ray Chevrolet: Driving & Advertising

RayLogo

THE OPPORTUNITY
Ray Chevrolet in Abbeville, LA is one of the regions leaders in wholesale parts distribution. Serving mechanics and shops spanning from Texas to Florida, their delivery fleet racks up thousands of miles each week. And while the long-standing billboards that Ray Chevrolet normally utilizes are a good part of a well-rounded marketing mix, there were opportunities to make the company’s marketing and advertising dollars go even farther, literally!

THE SOLUTION
Because of the number of potential impressions that each deliver vehicle can influence on a daily basis, the team decided to apply an affordable “3/4 vehicle wrap” to three of Ray Chevrolet’s delivery fleet vehicles. With an attractive and informative graphic, the delivery drivers are now moving marketers for their employers! Additionally, the vehicle wrap provides some measure of accountability for delivery drivers, as the fleet wrap also features prominent points of contact for Ray Chevrolet. Visibility + Accountability. Now THAT is a winning combination!

Check out the images below, and contact us for ideas on how we can revamp your marketing and branding initiatives!

Team Action Hits the Green with the Ragin’ Cajuns

ULLogoEach year, the Ragin’ Cajun Athletic Foundation hosts its Athletic Golf Tournament Fundraiser. Much more than a simple way to raise money for ULL’s athletic endeavors, the event serves as a point of pride for those taking place in the event, all while giving back to the university that has helped build so many economic opportunities here in Acadiana.

With a sold-out roster, 2014 marks the 13th year for the golf scramble. The teams took to the greens of Clubs of Kingwood in Houston, TX. Among those teams was Team Action! Throughout the last few years, our relationship with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has grown into a valued, mutually beneficial partnership that goes above and beyond its business implications. We are proud to support the Ragin’ Cajuns and we look forward to our next opportunity to show that support!

But most of all, funds were raised to help further the mission of The Arc of Acadiana!

In addition to being the 10th year for the fundraising event, The Arc of Acadiana is celebrating 60 years of service to the Acadiana area this year! We’re proud to have taken part in this benchmark event and look forward to many more years of involvement with their great organization!
