Labor Day Weekend is almost here... Affiliates should know what THAT means!

Who's looking for sheets?
These sheets are available in Twin, Full, Queen and King, and 15 beautiful patterns. Yes... you read that right -- 15 patterns!
Best of all, the price on 14 of the 15 patterns is now reduced, making them an even better value, and they're rated a bit over 4 out of 5 stars.

Don't take our word for it. Here's what Blair shopper "Phee" from NY had to say about them:

These are the best I've bought in years. I have sheets purchased more than thirty years ago that are still nice. And then I have some that were purchased only a few years ago that have no elastic left in the fitted sheet or the top sheet is simply not wide enough. I have microfiber ones that are so silky they won't stay on the bed. These... are nice. Silky but not so much that they pop off when you turn over. Come out of the dryer reasonably wrinkle free. Pretty (I have the blue rose pattern). It's too soon to know how the elastic will last but I'd definitely recommend these. Pretty patterns, nice feel, easy wash and dry. I'm sold.

Tuesday, August 25, 2015's Appearances in NASCAR! Is This Real???

Many affiliates will think I am a photoshop guru when they take a look at these photos.  But that's not the case.  These photos are REAL!  In the early 2000's, dabbled in NASCAR.

If my memory is still good, it all started with a back quarter panel on Kenny Wallace's #27 Pontiac at the Daytona 500 in 2001.  He started 23rd and finished in 25th place.  This was the race that took the life of racing legend Dale Earnhardt on the final lap.

Blair then hooked up with Midwest Transit Racing.  They were lacking a sponsor, and Blair agreed to work with them on their #50 Chevy driven by journeyman driver, Rick Mast. was the primary sponsor for 7 races in 2001 that the team qualified for, including Bristol, Martinsville, Richmond, Charlotte, Pocono, Daytona and Loudon. (The red car at the top is an image of Rick Mast driving the #50 Chevy in front of Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the Bud car and Michael Waltrip in the NAPA car.)

In 2003, was the primary sponsor for the #49 Dodge driven by Kenny Schrader at Pocono.  The team had several sponsors during the season, including BAM Racing, 1-800-CALL-ATT and Dakota Imaging.  Blair decided to jump on board for the Pocono race, since it was in our home state of Pennsylvania.  Unfortunately, Ken Schrader was out of the race on lap 7, due to a crash that had the car flipping end over end several times. (That's the #49 Dodge in the bottom photo courtesy of

Also in 2003, Blair was on the #32 Pontiac driven by Ricky Craven.  The primary sponsor was Tide, and Blair's CustomWear division served as the official clothing sponsor of the PPI Motorsports team.

That was a long time ago, but it's fun to look back at the memories from time to time.

Pointelle Knit Cardigan -- a true customer favorite!

Every once in awhile, I run across a product that catches my attention.

A Blair customer, "Sue20", recently reviewed our Pointelle Knit Cardigan:

It exactly met my need! This sweater was purchased to wear on a trip to the Canadian Rookies. The goal was to have a covering as the temperatures changed throughout the day as the.altitude changed. It was just what was needed. It complemented every outfit, dressy or casual.

When I went to the product page on, I noticed that this product not only is rated 4/5 stars by our customers, but there are 108 reviews!  That's a lot of reviews!*&sc=N&x2=c.t2&x1=c.t1

Why, of course!

Here's an ad from the 1920's (I think) when Blair was known as the New Process Company. It's a simple return postcard with an interesting sales pitch. The front is pre-addressed to John L. Blair, with "Why, of course!"

On the back with the drawing of a dapper gentleman and the headline, "All right -- send it along!" is the following copy:

Mr. Blair:

Your confidence in that "Any Weather" Topcoat is refreshing. I like to do business with a man who believes in his product.

You may send me an "Any Weather" Coat in my exact size, postpaid, on your fair and square offer of a week's examination and trial -- FREE.

I agree to examine it promptly, try it out -- WEAR it -- and either return it to you within a week or send you check for the special price of $14.85.

At the bottom framed in the red box, it reads:

If you remit in full now, we'll include a smart, stylish Cap of the same fabric as your Coat -- free of charge. Simply enclose this signed card in an envelope, with your check.
