Top Promotional Products of 2016

Every year new items are released and become trendy as promotional merchandise. Promotional products are any items that can be used for marketing or advertising. Typically businesses like to include a logo, slogan or company name on their promotional merchandise.

Promotional products could be a pen, bag, shirt, hat, jacket, water bottle, coffee mug, clock, journal, etc. that is given to a prospective customer or client.

New items are released yearly and become on trend. Businesses need to stay on top of the trends as an important aspect of promotional items is that customers continue to wear or carry the item. After you give your promotional merchandise to a client, you want them to carry the item around to display your brand to as many people as possible. This is how promotional items bring an ROI by increasing brand recognition and creating a stronger connection with a customer.

If you want a promotional item seen a lot a phone port like this one here would be a good idea.

Credit Card Sleeve

Phones are always in people’s hands, held up in front of their faces. Why not stick your logo on it? A credit card sleeve can be stuck to the back of a mobile phone to hold people’s credit cards in lieu of having to carry a wallet or bag. See out card sleeve here that can be personalized with your company logo.


Coolers have been a popular promotional product for many years and 2016 was no different.

Gift your customers with a cooler that you know will be taken to large group events like football games or company picnics to be seen by potentially hundreds of people. Placing your logo on a cooler and gifting it to a customer means increased brand recognition as the useful product gets toted around. See one of our coolers online here.
