Kensington, MD (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
EyeBlack.com, which already holds three United States patents for its customized EyeBlack products, has dramatically strengthened and extended its reach into the global marketplace with the award of European Patent No. 1222072.
"This European EyeBlack patent will give us -- and our customers -- a marketing edge in some of the most competitive sports arenas and fanatical fan bases in the world," said Peter Beveridge, President and CEO of EyeBlack.com.
EyeBlack.com's EyeBlack products use a safe and easy-to-use medical grade tape that helps reduce glare and promotes team unity with bold graphic logos, sports images, or company trademarks. EyeBlack.com offers a variety of in-stock EyeBlack products as well as customized logo and design services.
"This new and exclusive power to promote EyeBlack.com products overseas, as well as in the United States, will provide an unprecedented opportunity for teams and companies to brand themselves on the faces of millions of professional and amateur players and fans worldwide," said Beveridge.
"EyeBlack.com's customized and unique EyeBlack products are innovative and proven marketing tools for branding on the field and in the stands of soccer, rugby, cricket, handball, lacrosse, field hockey, football, and all kinds of sports teams throughout Europe. Now as European television cameras zoom in for close-ups of game action and cheering crowds, the face shots will feature EyeBlack.com-produced team and corporate logos. The European athletes' faces and their fans' faces will all now be potential mini-billboards for teams and advertisers everywhere, because Eyeblack.com now has the European patent protection to complement our U.S. patent protection," Beveridge explained.
EyeBlack products are currently worn by over 400 collegiate programs and thousands of professional and amateur athletes all across the U. S. Many of the Fortune 100 companies, as well as hundreds of smaller companies, have successfully used customized EyeBlack.com EyeBlack in their U.S. promotions and sporting events. EyeBlack.com has already begun expanding into the European market for current corporate clients and is also adding new U.S. and European corporate clients as a result of this new European EyeBlack patent.
