Shhh! Insider information…


It’s a little early, but we just couldn’t resist sharing… The Eddie Bauer Collection is coming!
From SUV’s to car seats and cribs, the Eddie Bauer brand has become synonymous with quality and performance of the highest degree.  The brand, founded in Seattle in 1920, has been on the forefront of outdoor gear innovation since the beginning.  Founder Eddie Bauer was an icon of the outdoor lifestyle, a consummate adventurer, hunter and fisherman.  Eddie Bauer patented the first quilted down jacket in 1935.  During the World War II years, cutting edge Eddie Bauer designs were supplied to US troops.  These unique pieces were made to military specifications and created, manufactured and supplied solely by Eddie Bauer.  Following the war, Eddie Bauer outfitted numerous mountaineering expeditions, many of them first ascents, or first American to summit.

Eddie Bauer returns to its brand heritage with the First Ascent line of outdoor performance gear.  The exceptional items in this line are guide built, designed by the men and women who brave the elements in the world’s most extreme environments on a daily basis.

With the launch of the Eddie Bauer line to the ad specialties market, you have the opportunity to co-brand with this premium, internationally recognized brand.  Providing your customers or staff team with Eddie Bauer apparel immediately introduces your brand as a premier partner.  Eddie Bauer is American innovation, outdoor adventure, and most importantly, high performance designed by doers.  Wear the best, wear what you are.

We’re excited to announce that 27 new Eddie Bauer and First Ascent products will debut in August!

As you plan for your fall and winter needs, let us help you take advantage of the new line.  Be one of the first to get your hands on the Eddie Bauer catalog!  Fill out the short request form and we’ll send your catalogs as soon as they become available.


Back to School - Stores!

Sayonara Summer

Though we might be a bit sad about saying good-bye to sun-drenched days at the beach, a fair, the zoo… the onset of the back to school season has an energized feeling. You can see it in the faces of the kids as they shop for the perfect folders and pencil boxes; there’s something exciting and contagious about anticipating and preparing for the school year. Summer has left us renewed and eager to get down to business.

Speaking of Business

A great way to kick off the school year is opening your own school store! Whether your school store is already an institution or a new start-up, Sky High Marketing can help make it great.

The Fundraiser

Generally run by school staff or PTO members, the fundraiser school store is a Spirit Shop (a version of the college bookstore) where pennants, apparel, water bottles, coffee mugs and other similar items are sold to students, staff, parents and friends. The Spirit Shop is generally open during school events and parent-teacher conferences to make the most of the target audience.

The Educator

Supervised by a volunteer (faculty or PTO member) this store is run by students. This provides a rich hands-on educational environment for students who learn lessons in math, marketing and customer service. The school store for curriculum enhancement is typically run during student lunch hours, free periods, recess, and sometimes before and after school.
