    ISlide For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    Breast Cancer Awareness Item

    Our limited edition pink slides are here!  

    At the heart of this collection are our cancer awareness slides, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We’re taking steps to support cancer awareness with the Ellie Fund - a foundation that provides essential support services to breast cancer patients throughout Massachusetts. The latest in our ISlide4Good campaign, this new partnership introduces two exclusive Ellie Fund slide designs for sale in our online shop with a portion of their sales being donated directly to the cause. In addition, we will donate $4 from EVERY slide purchased on our website in October back to the Ellie Fund!  In addition to selling various other pink designs in our Slide Shop, you can also customize your own pair. Check out our full pink collection or click here to start designing your own! 

    Now, more than ever, we challenge you to Stand In What You Stand For to help us raise money in the fight against breast cancer.  

      

    ISlide Back in The Tank

    ISlide Back in The Tank

    In honor of the re-airing of our Shark Tank episode tonight, we only thought it fitting to share our blog from last Fall, recapping our behind-the-scenes approach to designing ISlides for each Shark. Tune in tonight at 8:00pm EST to check us out......as well as the 3 stages of JK's crying face. 
    **********
    This past Friday (9/23/16), we were on the season premiere of Season 8 of Shark Tank. It was an unbelievable, unforgettable night. A lot of people saw the episode, but what a lot of people didn’t see was the all the prep that went into it. This blog is about one of the coolest things we got do as we prepared to pitch: make VERY unique, one-of-a-kind, ISlides for each Shark. 

    In honor of having received an offer from him, we'll begin with Robert Herjavec’s ISlides.

    When he’s not running his cyber-security company, Robert is a HUGE car guy. And we’re not just talking about buying them; we’re talking about racing them too. Professionally. To say this is something he is passionate about would be an understatement, so we knew this had to be a huge part of the design. We started by designing the top straps with a checkerboard pattern, inspired by the checkered flag at the end of car races.

    Centered on each slide, on top of the checkerboard, is an “RH” logo. This was inspired by the Ferrari logo, which is what he races with Team Herjavec. We switched the colors up to match his Croatian heritage.

    Finally, the side personalization for Robert featured his last name on one side, and a lock on the other, which represents his cyber-security business. Robert also happens to be a huge fan of slide sandals, and must have really liked these, because he put them right on. He also offered us a deal, which we ultimately declined, but hopefully that doesn’t change his opinion about the slides themselves.

    The Intern's Journey

    We just wrapped up our biggest and most successful summer internship program to date, with 13 college students working full-time in all facets of our company. When asked what was their favorite part of their ISlide internship, here's what they had to say!

    "My favorite part of the internship was being able to truly contribute ideas that made a meaningful impact on the company day in and day out while gaining valuable experience, friends, and memories that I'll always remember." - Tara (Marketing)

    "My favorite part of the internship was working under JK and learning what goes on inside the head of a CEO of a quickly growing startup. I learned how to think differently, think creatively, and think quickly."- Little Stevie (Jack of all Trades)

    "My favorite part of this internship was being able to make an impact from day one. My opinions and ideas were valued and actually encouraged. The experience I had at ISlide was very unique and very rewarding." - Lauren (HR)

    "My favorite part of this internship was learning what goes on inside a quickly growing company, as well as the experience I gained throughout.  Whether it was client facing or inside sales, I learned to be persistent and work hard, as our CEO JK says, "There is no luck in sales.  The harder you work the luckier you seem to get."- Austin (Sales)

    McGregor vs Mayweather

    McGregor vs Mayweather

    McGregor vs Mayweather will be the fight of the century. Whoever wins will impact the fighting world for the rest of time. If Conor McGregor wins it could mark the end of modern boxing as we know it. Not to mention it would prevent Floyd Mayweather from reaching the 50-0 mark that has not been reached by any boxer ever. But if Mayweather wins it will cement his legacy as the best boxer in history, going undefeated in 50 bouts. 

    Just like it is certain that this will be the fight of the century, it is clear what each athlete stands for. Mayweather stands for bravado, winning, and cockiness. McGregor stands for Ireland, pride, and talking shit.

    Inspired by his "Fuck You" suit that took the media by storm. We decided to make McGregor and his team slides to match that iconic suit.

    I SLIDE FOR #9 PAUL//PGO

    I SLIDE FOR #9 PAUL//PGO

      Paul's Favorite Time Of The Year 

    Tailgating with the crew. It's a way of life -- and my favorite end of summer event. A time that we come together as an Islide family and celebrate our accomplishments for the summer season. A way for us to thank our interns, who have grown with us. We all appreciate their drive and effort.

    Four years' now we have done our "PGO" event: The Paul Gibson Open.

    Tailgating. Beer. Friends. Games. Food.

    There is nothing like spending a summer afternoon with friends and family; cold brew in hand and the grill turned up.

    Maybe next year, I'll see you there.

    - Paul
