Australia is heating up, which means it's time to start getting your marketing merchandise organised for spring and summer events, campaigns, and giveaways. Not sure where to start? Don't worry; we've got some tips for selecting the right custom products for your warm-weather campaign.
Lightweight Items are Winners
Nobody wants to carry around cumbersome products at the best of times, but during spring and summer, there's nothing worse than lugging something heavy around -- even if it's a useful item. That's why we suggest looking at lightweight promotional products that are easy to carry, feature breathable material where possible, and feel like a treat to have with you rather than a burden.
Single Colour Logos Are All The Rage
The trend we're seeing in promotional products this season is that a lot of businesses are ditching the full-colour digital prints and opting for simple, one-colour designs instead. While a lot of this depends on your logo and the message you want to convey, we think there's going to be a lot of stylish single colour designs at expos and conferences through spring and summer.
You Can't Beat Eco-Friendly Gifts
One trend we're not seeing change at all in the past 12-18 months is the increased demand for eco-friendly promotional products. Eco-friendly can mean items made from recycled or ethically sourced materials, reusable long-term use goods, products made to biodegrade in the right conditions, and gifts made from natural fibres like calico or wood. We all want to lessen our impact on the planet, so these items and your organisation will do its bit by investing in eco-friendly products rather than single-use objects.
Promoting your brand can often be a difficult task. Practical items may be too small or not noticeable enough. For this reason, we believe wearing your brand is the number one way of getting people to consciously and subconsciously take note of your name. Here are the best ways to wear your brand.
1. Promotional Caps and Visors
Logo branded caps and visors are the staples for brand recognition. Headwear is worn throughout virtually every season of the year, meaning it is a regular form of marketing. More importantly, when talking with someone, your face/head is the first thing that people see meaning your brand or logo will instantly come to their attention!
2. Custom Branded Sunglasses and Eyewear
What better way to complement your promotional cap than with some branded eyeglasses? Eyewear has the same applicability as headwear but is lightweight and puts a trendy tweak on promotion. These are great for indoor, outdoor, sporting and work-related activities. You would be remised if you did not pair your promotional caps with sunglasses.
3. Casual and Workwear Apparel
The last and most obvious means of promotion is through shirts and jackets. Strapping your name across a jacket is a great way to get noticed. Similarly, neatly placing your logo on a business shirt is also bound to get people talking. One of our most popular options is a classically embroidered promotional polo shirt. The permutations here are endless and wearing your brand is certainly the most effective means of promotion.
