May 7, 2024

Summer’s here, and with it comes a jam-packed schedule of activities: picnics with the fam, concerts on the lawn, road trips out to the coast. Good marketers know these are prime opportunities to connect with potential customers. But with so many brands vying for attention, how can you make yours stand out?

Here’s a hot tip: make sure your tactile marketing efforts are more than just a summer fling by picking promo that your customers will love – and use – throughout the summer! So slather on the sunscreen this season and see that your brand gets plenty of exposure (just not the UV kind) with the hottest summer swag. We’ve picked out 8 of our faves to help you dive in.


1. Concerts

Summer nights are perfect for outdoor concerts. Help your customers navigate lines and crowds in style with a custom clear waist bag. This trendy and functional accessory keeps essentials secure while staying within most venue policies, letting your brand shine through the crowd.

2. Amusement Parks

Amusement parks mean all-day fun – and staying hydrated is key! Keep your customers cool and hydrated with a branded hydration sling. They’ll have hands-free access to water all day long, and your logo will be right there with them on every ride.

3. Sporting Events

Whether they’re cheering on a local professional soccer team or hollering from the little league sidelines, elevate your customers’ bleacher experiences with the branded GameChanger Stadium Seat! It offers comfy, convenient seating, making those long games a breeze – their lower back will surely thank you.
