SEMINOLE, Fla., March 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superior Uniform Group, Inc., (Nasdaq:SGC), designer and manufacturer of uniforms, image apparel and accessories, today announced the launch of its new division, everyBODY media (R). Through a licensing agreement with EYELEVEL INTERACTIVE (TM) (EI (TM)), everyBODY media is revolutionizing both the uniform and advertising industries by combining mobile action codes and interactive advertising with image apparel, directly at the point of purchase. With everyBODY media, customers now can create or take existing uniform programs and transform them into significant revenue producing advertising mediums. Using advanced printing technology, high quality graphic panels containing brand messaging and smart phone Mobile Action Codes for advertisements (e.g., special point of purchase coupons, videos, games, contests, etc.) are printed on fabric. These panels, called Switch-Its (TM), attach to the patented garments (shirts, aprons, etc.), creating the iPOPS (TM) (Interactive Point of Purchase System). Because the panels are easily removable, graphic messaging can be changed monthly, weekly, daily or even hourly to reach specific demographics with the most effective timing. Proprietary Mobile Action Codes called EI (TM) Tags located on the Switch-Its can lead consumers who scan with their smart phones to special point of purchase deals, contests, online videos or other interesting and interactive touch points.
