For my workerís gift looking designer clocks

Iím a business man and run my company. On this Christmas I have decided to give neon clock to my workers but I want to fit my company logo on those clocks. I have no extra time to discuss this matter with my business partners or friends. Iím also not interested to search shops that fulfill my requirements. I search online stores that provide me support. They can do all works for me. Can anyone recommend me any online store? Thanks in advance

Are you aware that this is a bicycle forum?

BTW, forget the clocks; just give them money.

Don't bother with clocks, just get all of your employees a Patek Philippe. You should send me one as well.

It's not a "gift" if it has the company logo on it.

This has to be one of the most bizarre threads I've seen on BF's. It's bizarre that he asked this type of advice on a Bike Forum and that he actually thinks it's OK to give his employees a neon light ... with his company logo I hope this is a joke post!

A neon clock with the company logo on it. That's right on the verge of insulting, right there.

How did you ever get to the point where you run a company when you write like this? ^^^

I also "run" a company. My employees like MONEY same as me. We pay cash bonuses to our supervisory employees and Walmart, (Yeah I know the evil empire), gift certificates to our general employee base. The gift certificates are scaled based on years of service. It has worked well and I am sure will go off better than a clock.

I hope he's pulling our leg. It would feel like a slap in the face to receive something like that.
