Case history: Union Pacific
Objective: To create a special safety award for a special group of train operators.
Pewter was used for Union Pacific to have something completely different to offer to a special group of employees. Since embroidery had been used on many occasions with the Union Pacific logo, this particular buyer needed to offer something out of the ordinary so this award would stand out above the rest. They wanted to have something the operators could wear to promote their special group. Red and blue epoxy paint was added to the logo to give the hat more precision and brand awareness.
Result: The train operators commented on how this hat with pewter decoration was so different from many they have received in the past with regular embroidery.
