Here are some moments from our 20th anniversary.

WISE Memorabilia

WISE members may purchase many different types of memorabilia -- a great and fun way to proudly display your membership in the WISE organization.

A large number of items: tee-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, coffee mugs, cups, tote bags, calendars, jewelry, and other items  (silk-screened or embroidered with the WISE logo), are available through Cafe Press (silk-screening) or Guertin (embroidering).  Two different WISE logos can be selected -- the standard logo or one celebrating our 25th Anniversary year.

You can order custom WISE items by going to the Cafe Press website. See the Cafe Press brochure for additional information about these celebratory products.  Call Guertin Graphics at (508) 798-0060 or see Guertin's flyer for email ordering information.
