Cool Summer Promo Items

With summer time now officially upon us, it's probably an appropriate time to offer up some great summer related promotional product ideas. Whether you're trying to reach people at the beach, the pool, at cookouts or at the ballpark, there are lots of ways to effectively showcase your branding message once the heat and humidity hit.

Here are some examples:

Summer Stuff

Beach Towels are one of the staple items of summer. However one of the challenges with these is that creating something with a really dynamic design is often costly, especially if you're not looking to order a lot of towels at once. With a design incorporating 4 or more imprint colors, those $120.00 screen charges really start to add up.

Here's a solution. The Westmoreland Collection of designer beach towels. These are a series of creations by artist Scott Westmoreland who's work is sold in galleries nationwide. Choose from a series of 'stock' designs (standard sized or over sized) add your logo and you've got the type of towel that will get plenty of use -- meaning lots of exposure for your brand. You can order as few as 36 at once starting at $18 each with no set up charge.

Seaside Beach Tote-

Anyone heading to the beach needs to take a tote bag and here's a pretty cool option.
