5 Hot Summer Promotional Items

Summer is here and you could be selling the essentials with your logo or branded design featured on it. We are here to help you pick a product that is relevant to your target market and appealing to your customers. From sunscreen to tote bags, here is a list of the top 5 products we are seeing this summer that can help you brand your organization.

1. Sunglasses

We know environmental consciousness is a growing value of consumers. As most promotional sunglasses are made entirely of plastic, this is not always the ideal product; but there are alternative hidden gems. We are proud to be an approved promotional distributor for our friends at WUDN whose products are eco-friendly and made from locally sourced wood. With several different options for sunglasses, our favorites are the styles crafted from recycled skate decks.  Other options include ebony wood, zebra wood, and bamboo. You can hug the trees while also rocking them on your face!

2. Coolers

Keep your summertime drinks cold in the place they belong, your cooler. This is yet another surface where your logo or custom design could shine. Next time a customer catches your cooler peeking out from behind a booth and it’s smothered in an awesome design, your brand will be spoken for. Coolers can also be high end gifts for your executive employees or most critical clients, as a way to say thank you with class, a sense of adventure, and a touch of your brand. We are thankful to be approved promotional distributors of some of the largest brands including: RTIC, YETI, Pelican, Igloo, Coleman, and Bison.

3. Totes

Brands such as Lulu Lemon have seen tremendous success using totes as a branding weapon. Since the growing awareness and efforts to be environmentally responsible, consumers are proud to reuse totes bags for many purposes. This makes custom tote bags an effective brand exposure tool. Lulu Lemon’s tote design is so well known that many can spot this branded bag from a mile away, and that’s brand recognition at it’s finest. A tote is comparatively larger than many promotional products which means lots of canvas to paint on, quite literally. We suggest taking full advantage of this space by not just slapping your logo on the side but investing in creative design work. You need a design to catch the eye from far away, be memorable and relate to your cause. Lucky for you this is our forte and passion! 


4. Sunscreen

While sunglasses, totes, or coolers may be a larger investment, we also have suggestions for smaller summer promo items. Smaller items such as sunscreen can make for an easy giveaway product people will actually use in the summer. These can be easily tossed in a beach bag or glove box for spontaneous outings in the sun and a quick reminder of your organization.

5. Coolies

Coolies, also known by the brand name Koozie(R), are insulated beverage holders. There is no better season than summer to put these on the shelf. Perhaps you can match a burlap coolie with your hipster mason jar glasses for customers sitting outside. Coolies have come a long way and AMB3R is now offering fabrics like burlap, denim, suede, metallic and velvet to create a variety of looks.
