Is it that time of year when it is too cold for short sleeves, but too warm yet for a jacket? It’s just perfect, then, for promotional hoodies. If by some chance you have managed not to become acquainted with hoodies, they are basically sweatshirts with hoods, with a zippered front or pullover style, with a drawstring to adjust the hood and a large pocket across the bottom front. They frequently have designs on the back or on the sleeves.
They are worn by boxers before matches, by skateboarders, and by fans attending sports events of all types. Hoodies have been in the U.S. since the 1930’s, when workers in northern New York state wore them in the freezing temperatures. Their emergence as a fashion trend took off in the 1970’s, when the movie Rocky made them popular.
Hoodies with a company logo constitute great promotional products. They have a large imprint area available for your logo so that is easily seen and recognized. Because of the large diversity of places in which they are worn, your advertising area is extended and your exposure multiplied. This means that your advertising dollar goes a lot further, and accomplishes more.
Children as well as adults love these custom logo hoodies, and they are available in youth as well as adult sizes. You can select from a wide range of colors and styles, to blend in with or contrast your logo.
The hyp apparel Portland hoodieis a great example of a best-selling promotional hoodie. This hooded sweatshirt is made of 100% rugged cotton French terry and is specially dyed and treated to provide a vintage look. It features a durable braided cotton drawstring, kangaroo pocket and V-notch stitch detail at the front neck. You can also elect to purchase a super heavyweight hoodie for those extra cool days.
Promotional hoodies will provide you with exceptional advertising results for a reasonable investment. You can give them as gifts, or use them for employees. They also make good team apparel, and can even be sold in school stores for the fans. Be sure to consider adding them to your marketing plan.
T shirts have been with us since the 19th century, and were originally worn as undergarments rather than as standalone shirts. They were valued because they were inexpensive, easily-cleaned, and easy to fit. They became popular as outerwear during the 2nd World War, and gained in recognition in the 1950’ when they showed up in the movie “A Streetcar Named Desire” modeled by Marlon Brando. Since that time, promotional t shirts have continued with a constant rise in use and esteem.
Custom shirts are worn by men, women, and children of all age groups. They can be plain white or different colors and most have traditionally been made of cotton, though many also come in different materials as well. They can be plain, patterned, or have a company logo emblazoned on them. As promotional products they’re unrivaled, both because of their low cost and because of their wide use. One of the most widely-known companies to use T-shirts for advertising and branding was Disney with its many popular cartoon characters. We’ve all seen the smiley face t-shirts, and whenever you visit a resort or restaurant, it’s common to see them use company logo t shirts.
T-shirts today run the gamut in price range. You can select inexpensive promotional t-shirts such as the Hanes 100% cotton tagless t-shirt to give away to a large audience. Hand them out to valued employees or customers as a token of your appreciation.
At the other end of the spectrum, you can opt for a more expensive, higher quality piece of apparel like the alo ladies t shirt. Make every workout count with a shirt that moves with you and keeps you comfortably dry and cool. Made of 92/8 polyester/Spandex, it has StretchFlex technology that provides comfort and freedom of movement.
Choosing promotional t shirts as part of your advertising campaign is a smart move, which will help you reach the audience that you are targeting, and attain the goals that you have set.
Do you, your customers and employees do a lot of traveling, either for business or pleasure? Do you frequently have to carry large numbers of identification or documentation such as passports, tickets or boarding passes? Have you had problems in the past trying to find some convenient place to store your traveler’s checks, hotel or motel booking information, and other related items? The typical men’s wallet simply isn’t roomy enough to hold all of the belongings that are a necessity when you travel. Handing them to a woman to carry in her purse might help at times, but this really isn’t an ideal solution.
Custom travel wallets are a great solution. Basically, these promotional travel wallets are small, flat cases which hold your personal information and money. This can include cash, credit and debit cards, traveler’s checks, driver’s license, passport information, business cards, pictures, hotel information, plane tickets and even more. Even loaded with all of your information, they still fit conveniently in your pocket. Losing any of these items can be devastating, and you want to know that they are safe and secure at all times.
Because of their usefulness and value, these travel wallets make marvelous promotional products. With your logo notably displayed on them, it is seen by not only the person carrying it, but also by everyone who comes in contact with them while it is in use. This means your advertising is being seen anywhere that the person travels, allowing your advertising to reach into areas where it would ordinarily be difficult for you to reach with traditional advertising tools. Each of the promotional travel wallets that you distribute rapidly returns your investment many times over in marketing power.
Are you looking for a gift that will not only be appreciated but also used again and again? Custom travel wallets are not a gift that will be tucked away and forgotten. Your customers will be pleased to receive them, and more than happy to use them. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness and insight into what they really need. Speed them on their way the next time they travel.
Imagine this completely fabricated scenario based on absolutely no real-world experience: You are sitting there sipping a soft drink from a paper cup. Something startles you, and you momentarily tighten your grip. Immediately the cup collapses, and you have soft drink all over your lap. Does that sound familiar? No, of course it doesn’t, but just pretend with me for a moment. Maybe you set your paper cup down, someone bumps the table, and your beverage spills all over the place. Oh golly, What a disaster!
For these completely hypothetical occurrences, a personalized tumbler with straw can be the perfect solution!
The best promotional products are those which both solve a problem and fill a desire; items that are both needed and wanted – all while advertising your company in a positive manner. By supplying your customers, potential customers, and employees with a promotional tumbler with straw, you are saving them from spills that are at the very least inconvenient. At the same time, you’re skillfully promoting your company’s image by displaying your logo prominently on the tumblers.
These tumblers do not need to be expensive to be effective advertising tools. Even on a small budget, you can successfully promote your business and brand. When you are doing your marketing research and setting up your advertising budget, decide how much can be allotted for the purchase of your custom tumblers with straws. Then determine how you will go about distributing them. This will tell you whether you should spend more on each tumbler, when they are to be used as gifts, or whether you should keep the cost of each unit low for a more large scale giveaway for a tradeshow or other event.
You can select inexpensive tumblers like the 20 oz. Stadium 2 Go with Straw. This tumbler has a large 7.5″ x 2.88″ area for your logo imprint, and makes an excellent advertising item for large scale promotions.
For tumblers used as gifts, you may prefer a design such as the 27 oz flip top freedom, a double wall insulated acrylic tumbler with flip top sipper lid.
Whatever style of personalized tumbler with straw that you choose, these items fill a definite need and will help to promote your company image and growth.

We’ve all heard the phrase “the child in all of us.” Nowhere is this more evident than when it comes to playing with toys! That is why promotional toys should be such an important part of your marketing campaign. We all know what happens when a little boy gets a toy train set for Christmas-dad is right there on the floor with him setting up the tracks. And who is next to the little girl playing with the new Barbie doll or dollhouse? We all get older, but it is the rare person who loses their love of toys.
Many of us collect toys through the years. Everything from dolls to matchbox cars to old fashion wooden toys are sought out from garage sales, second hand stores and estate sales, as well a from other collectors. Company logo toys have always been a favorite among collectors. Check out any old toy with the coca cola logo, and see what they sell for! Collectible items with the Marvel and DC logos sell for premium prices, as do many others.You may not own a business that is on the level with Coca Cola (yet!), but when you are searching for a promotional product for your company, you really should consider promotional toys.
Inexpensive items such as crayons, ping pong balls, Frisbees and hacky sacks, to name just a few, are tremendous for advertising when emblazoned with your brightly colored logo. These toys can be given away in large quantities at tradeshows, conventions and other events.
More expensive items, such as a football bean bag throw, a premium poker game set or a stuffed plush bear with your logo, make wonderful gifts for employees and customers and their families.
No matter what business you are in, there is nothing like adding a little fun to your advertising to get your customers involved. Of course, if you happen to be in the toy business, or in any business that involves children in any way, there is no better choice for a promotional product than toys! Hospitals use them, doctors and dentist offices have found them very helpful in calming young patients. There are few businesses that can’t benefit from the use of promotional toys!

Ready for a trivia question? What traditional sporting item has been around for over 30,000 years, and was part of a collection of King Tutankhamen, and is still used today? As you probably guessed by the title of this article, it’s the boomerang, of course! Something else that may surprise you is the fact that using promotional boomerangs as part of your advertising campaign is the a fantastic idea for many businesses.
Children love these boomerangs, but most adults are also unable to resist throwing one when they have a chance. We’re just so fascinated with how they work. Although we now use them mainly as sporting or play items, boomerangs have also been used for hunting. There is even a world championship for boomerang throwing now. They were mostly made from wood, but bone boomerangs have also been discovered. Today, they can also be comprised of plywood, plastic or composites.
Custom boomerangs have a very large area for displaying your logo or other information where it can be readily observed. You can purchase an Australian style plastic boomerang with a 3” x 0.75” imprint area for your logo or company slogan in a variety of colors. These logo boomerangs are extremely inexpensive but don’t fall short on value, making them a reliable advertising tool.
Boomerangs work well for advertising most any type of business, and can be distributed easily. They are inexpensive enough to pass out at tradeshows, conventions, seminars and other events, as well as at schools and camps. Sporting goods stores find these promotional boomerangs an invaluable advertising tool, and many sporting events love to hand them out before a match or game. Although almost any item can be used as a promotional product, something such as custom boomerangs are a little different and unique, and will stand out from the more common items such as pens, key rings and lighters. When you are trying to make your business stand out, choosing something which stands out from the crowd is always a good idea.

A large version of your logo spread across the front or back of the shirt is easily visible even from a distance.
These shirts make great semi-uniform shirts for your employees, easily identifying them on the job. They are also perfect for company picnics or other outings, showing that every member is part of the group. Families of the employees also love the shirts, and there are sizes for every age and size group.
Custom shirts make great gifts and souvenirs for people attending charity events, such as a heart walk or motorcycle rally. You can purchase a large number of them at a reasonable cost and provide one for each member when they register for the event.
Cheap promotional t shirts also make great gifts at tradeshows and conventions, and go on passing your message around every time they are worn.
You aren’t limited to plain t shirt designs, either. Select something a little different such as the ladies racerback tank or the ladies deep v-neck tee for something a little out of the ordinary.
You can also select a shirt like the J America men’s long sleeve Henley made of 7-oz, 100% brushed cotton. This 4-button Henley is as soft as it is durable and can be embroidered with up to 8 colors and 7,500 stitches. Any customer would be pleased to have one of these high-quality shirts.
