We're a promotional marketing company. What can we do that will really make a difference? Then we realized, our on-site capabilities include Web sites and custom banners! And both are great messages carriers.
Chicago (PRWEB) October 30, 2008
The Barracks Banner is a new web site created for members of the armed services serving overseas to post messages back to the people in the states for free. The link for the site is: Barracks Banner.
The site has been created by Overture Premiums & Promotions, a leading US-supplier of advertising specialties and promotional marketing products and services, as a way of showing the company's support for our troops.
"We wanted to do something to show our support of the troops," explains Heather Sanderson, Overture Founder and CEO. "We're a promotional marketing company. What can we do that will really make a difference? Then we realized, our on-site capabilities include Web sites and custom banners! And both are great messages carriers."
Members of the armed services can create their own personal message on The Barracks Banner free. The posting may be a message sharing an experience, a personal sentiment, or a response to messages read on The Blessings Banner, a banner where individuals can post messages to the troops.
"We felt it was really important that our troops have a forum for their voices to be heard," adds Heather. "It's important that the troops be able to share their feelings and experiences in their own words to help all of us to better understand what they're going through so far from home."
As the messages are collected, they are posted to the online version of the banner and are available for all site visitors to read. Eventually, the banner(s) will be printed and distributed in the nation's capitol and possibly around the country. Details about the distribution are in development and will be posted on the site.
A companion banner has been created for individuals to post messages to the troops for free― The Blessings Banner. Details of how and where this banner will be posted are being developed and will be posted on the site. Individuals serving in the armed services can read the messages on the electronic banner for free at: Blessings Banner
