Get the Word Out About your Business: Use Promotional Apparel

Jun 2, 2008
Ask anyone and they will tell you how much they love going somewhere and getting something for free. The promotional give-a-ways at sporting events are usually those relating to apparel such as hats, t-shirts and more.

Promotional apparel is a very effective way in getting the word out about your business. Your company name is embossed on the apparel of your choice and everyone will see your business name worn by many people.

Shirts are probably the most popular type of promotional apparel that is used and probably the most inexpensive. There are several major apparel groups such as Hanes or Fruit of the Loom that work with companies who make bulk purchases for shirts that are used to print your designs on or other items.

For only $5.00 per shirt or less, if you bought in bulk, you can see how you can't go wrong with choosing such an effective promotional item.

Another popular apparel choice used for business promotion is a hat. You can easily print your company's name or logo on the front. This will get people to immediately notice your company name when they are looking at someone who is wearing the hat. Hats are an attractive item for anyone to wear and will draw attention to anyone. This is why it is a great choice as a promotional item. They are also relatively inexpensive to purchase. You can keep your costs below $5.00 per hat if you don't choose something that is overly complicated.

A very unique concept for marketing and promotional items are those found in the kitchen. Oven mitts, aprons, and towels, all embossed with an organization's logo are a reminder everyday of that particular company. A little trick to remember is to buy kitchen apparel that is attractive or appealing so that the item is not put in a drawer or cupboard and then forgotten.

One of the last types of apparel that I'll mention here is athletic apparel. People who exercise often will need athletic apparel and if you give it away to them for free they will be very happy. All you have to do is put your company logo on the apparel and they will be a walking advertisement for you. You can put your logo or company name on headbands and wristbands. These are relatively cheap and will cost less than $2.00 a piece.

As you can see, there are many benefits for companies to use apparel as promotional products. They not only give your company a continuous stream of free advertising but your product or business name will be recognized everywhere. Maybe the next time somebody wants to buy a particular item it could be your company that they choose.
