Supporting Danos’ Mission for Safety

Danos Rockin' the Oath Safety Focus

For years, the fine folks at Danos have not only been customers of Action Specialties, but also our friends.

In keeping with those values, each year, Danos holds a series of meetings that have been coined the “Safety Focus” series. And for years, Action Specialties has supported these great team-building events. This year’s Safety Focus Tour theme is “Rockin’ the Oath.”

Action Specialties Returns as Official Merchandise Partner

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 11.34.27 AM

20150426_130505_resizedFor the last number of years, Action Specialties has been proud to be the official Merchandise Partner of Festival International de Louisiane. Festival International prides itself on not only being one of the top world music festivals on Earth, but it’s also FREE! The Festival International team works hard every year to come up with new funding strategies to try to keep the event free to the public. Part of this strategic mix is the sale of official Festival International merchandise!

Part of what makes Festival International great is the wide demographic of its attendees. Not only does the festival bring in locals from all walks of life, but music fans make the trip to the festival from across the globe! With this in mind, a one-size-fits-all merchandise plan just wouldn’t do. We brainstormed dozens of designs and garment selections with the Festival International staff and board members. Ultimately, we settled upon a comfortable and attractive set of tees as well as a number of new and exciting promotional and branded products, worthy of being a branding representation of Acadiana’s premier music festival!

Thanks to our friends and customers at Festival International de Louisiane for giving us the opportunity to show what we’re made of. Until next year, Happy Festival!

Perspectives on the Oilfield at Home and Worldwide

Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce Logo

Action Specialties has always had a close working relationship with the Oil and Gas Industry, with both of our locations, Houston and New Iberia, being in the heart of those industries. These regions which we call home have a deep and inextricable relationship with the energy industry and their local economies. Since day one, Action Specialties has been a strong supporter of these industries, a fact that we have put much pride in. Today, as we face some of the cyclical hardships that come along with that industry, companies across the board have turned an attentive eye to the developments of the oilfield.

Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce Eggs and IssuesAction Specialties was proud to attend a special “State of the Industry” breakfast meeting entitled “Oil & gas: The Best of Times, The Worst of Times,” presented by the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce. Attendees were privy to a special keynote address from the President of the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil & Gas Association, Chris John. Addressing some of the nation’s concerns while putting real numbers to the issues, John helped familiarize those in attendance with the truth of the issues facing the global Oil and Gas Industry. Illustrating the oilfields ups and downs of the oilfield throughout the decades, those in attendance were given a true view of the situation and provided with some perspective on how to make rational moves for the future.

We would like to thank not only the event’s speakers, but the team at the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce for putting together such a great event at such an important and daunting time for our region. It is our hope that all in attendance left the event with some direction, as well as a little bit of peace of mind.

Presented by T&D Solutions

logoThis year marked the 127th Southwest Electric Safety Exchange Conference, one of the longest-standing and respected gatherings of its kind. The event took place at the MCM Elegante Hotel in Beaumont, Texas, and hosted some of the leading names in the industry.

The 127th SWESE Conference was an event filled with industry insights and talks, showcasing a number of roundtable discussions that touched on some of the most timely and important topics in today’s electrical environment. In addition, manufacturers and vendors of essential goods and services relating to the industry got the chance to show their wares and meet with the decision makers for some of these prestigious companies and organizations.


Action Specialties was proud to display and act as a hospitality sponsor for this event. This afforded us some great one-on-one time with some of our existing customers, and the opportunity to meet with prospective buyers as well as industrial thought leaders alike. We are proud to have been a part of this event, and we are thankful for the professional relationships that will most certainly grow from this great conference.

Bringing 20 Years of Experience to Houston


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.

Keep on Jeepin’ On

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

Flexible Merchandise Solutions

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.

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, We Did That! on March 20th, 2015

Over 200 Feet of Wrap Material on One Boat!

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.

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!

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


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!

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!

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!
