Custom leather dog collars were the “must have item” at the Columbia, South Carolina Fur Ball event sponsored by Jim Hudson Lexus. The event was held to benefit the Pawmetto Animal Shelter. The shelter is a no-kill shelter for animals in the Columbia area. It takes over one million dollars to keep the shelter up and running each year.
Our Chief Embossing Officer, Desiree Colonna, manned the embossing machine for four hours straight with no breaks. Desiree stated, “Embossing leather is something I love to do, especially when I see the reaction of the customer. They absolutely loved these leather dog collars and couldn’t wait to take them home to their dogs!”
The collars were provided by Mel Boteri, a handbag designer in Atlanta who had them pre-stamped with the Lexus logo. Desiree added the dog’s name on the custom leather dog collars in front of customers at her booth in gold or silver foil. There was also the option of no foil, just debossed with no color.
We knew the custom leather dog collars were going to be big hit when we realized the line for the dog collars was longer than both the lines for the food table and bar!
Attendees of all ages love the dog collars. It was fun to watch everyone show off their special gifts around the room as the night went on. The collars were so popular, the booth started running out of sizes. All in all, 250 collars were embossed throughout the night.
The night was filled with music, great food and dancing. Guests all had a lovely time and enjoyed the event from start to finish. Our custom leather dog collars at the Lexus station were icing on the cake and a great memory of a beautiful night.
The best feedback we received was in an email the next day from the dogs of one of the attendees. They wrote, “Thank you for our new collars with our names on them. Mom told us how long and hard you worked at the Fur Ball. Doggie licks and hugs, Sophie and Rusty.”
