Twelve!  Twenty-five! Two thousand eight!  Hut!  Hut!  Hike!  Welcome to this special football edition of the TechTraksTM newsletter.  We've been working hard to be able to offer you great new products and that effort is finally paying off.  We have quite a number of new sports-related products to offer.  In fact, we have so many new products we will be issuing a second news letter later this month!

Now is the time to start gathering items together for the holiday season.  Whether that's shopping early for unique gift items on your Christmas list (it's never too early to get that list checked off) or getting things together for your holiday display you can always find something of interest at Holiday Technologies.  You can visit our store by clicking here.

We have also introduced programming services for both Animated LightingTM and Light-O-RamaTM systems.  More about this below in our Programming Services section.

We have several things to discuss in this issue so let's get started!

Be sure and spend some time on the display Showcase section of our website.  We've added more great videos you won't want to miss.  This is a great place to get ideas for your own displays.  Also, if you have ideas for a display and you don't see one like it, give us a call.  We'd be glad to work with you to bring your idea to life.

We now offer Programming Services to assist you with your display.  We can program songs and/or sequences for you using software from Animated LightingTM or Light-O-RamaTM so you can include them in your show.  Want a full-blown production?  Talk to us and we'll produce something made just for your display.

If you are starting from scratch and need someone to guide you through the process of animating your display, give us a call or send us an e-mail.  We've been doing this for other folks for over 12 years now and never get tired of helping.  We would be happy to help you design the display of your dreams.

Oftentimes people discover that adding animation to their display doubles the amount of effort involved.  First you have to set the display up (what you would usually do) and then you have to go and program the display.  Rather than adding more time and effort to something that should be fun and get you into the holiday sprit, why not have us help with the programming?  Imagine installing your lights, connecting everything together, and then simply turning everything on and having it work?  Compare that with spending late nights at the computer trying to get the lights to do what you want them to do.  Save yourself quite a bit of time and effort and contact us today!

We also offer on-site training for both individuals as well as groups of people.  We can come to your location and teach you step-by-step how to create something even the neighbors will be proud of!  And should you be interested in a more turn-key solution we also offer installation services.  Allow us to do your installation and go to sleep at night knowing the work will be done and the show will go on!  Please contact us for more information.

We've added many fun, new products to our website.  It's early in the football season so you won't want to miss any of these new items!.

Sports ornaments are finally here!  Show your team spirit by hanging one of these on your Christmas tree or proudly display it all year long using our ornament stand.  Each 2 5/8" ornament is painted with corresponding team colors and the team logo is boldly printed directly on the ornament.  Each ornament comes individually gift boxed.  Buy one for yourself and several more for your family and friends!  Please contact us if you don't see your team listed.

We are also working on adding Major League Baseball (MLB) teams as well as team from the National Hockey League (NHL), National Basketball Association (NBA), and a load of college teams.  Keep watching our webstore to see if your team is available.

Sports wireframes are here as well!  You don't have to wait until Christmas to fire up those lights!  How about starting the season off with a bang and cheer on your favorite football teams with our sport's wire frames?

These are durable wire frames with your favorite team's logo recreated out of heavy-duty rope light.  You can place the sculptures indoors or out to exclaim your team loyalty.  Each sculpture includes built-in hangers and yard stakes and is approximately 36".

Please contact us if you see an item that interests you and don't see it listed on our store.  And remember to check back frequently.  We add new items every day.

Feel free to contact us any time.  Here is a handy contact sheet you can print and place on the front of your refrigerator, right next to the kids' drawings. Be sure to check the website often for new product announcements.

You always have the option to contact us and request to be placed on our mailing list.  We can also remove you from the mailing list if you so desire.  Simply call us at 913.626.6226 or e-mail us at

We encourage you to forward this newsletter to all the people you know who you think would be interested in adding a bit of technology to their holidays.  It doesn't matter if it's a birthday, St. Patrick's Day, an anniversary, the 4th of July, or even Christmas.  There's always an opportunity to "tech the halls!"  See you next time!
