The Most Popular Promotional Merchandise for Summer Campaigns

The sun is shining, and it feels like summer is finally here! When you think of summer you tend to think of BBQ's, taking walks in the park, visiting the beach and the overpowering smell of sunscreen. It is scientifically proven that people are happier when the weather is better, people embrace that get-up-and-go attitude to everyday life.

Summer has wonderful marketing potential for your business - you can look to brighten your customer's day with promotional merchandise that they associate with the summer months. We want to run through a few popular items that you can look into for your next Summer campaign.

Tote Bags

There’s a reason cotton tote bags are one of the most popular items that we sell. As well as boasting a significant space for your branding, they are incredibly practical. In fact, practicality and usefulness are ranked incredibly highly when people look to take promotional merchandise. Tote bags are perfect for Summer because they’re a great accessory for days out; they offer a convenient way to carry flip flops and sunscreen, all the while showing off your company logo.

Long Handle Portobello Cotton Bag

These Long Handle Portobello Cotton Bags are a great eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags whilst displaying your brand in a full-colour design. 

Sunscreen

We highly recommend branding sunscreen with your logo this Summer. In the UK people can be quite caught off-guard and unprepared when it comes to the Summer rays. If you’re taking your brand to an event with children, then why not gift branded sunscreen to the attendees. Not only will you help save some skin from burning, but your brand will also be remembered as providing a valuable product. Brownie points for you!

F30 Travel Sunscreen Bottles

You're not only going to be saving people's skin, but also space with the handy F30 Travel Sunscreen Bottles. Have your design printed on these fun-sized sunscreen bottles to ensure your brand is appreciated with every squeeze.

Games

From footballs to cones, there is a variety of merchandise that can be branded with your logo and used to play games. When the rare and welcome occasion that the sun comes out does occur, we want to be outside as much as possible. Get your brand outdoors and encourage exercise with outdoor fun.

Medium Flyer

Branded flying disks are the ideal way to ensure your brand awareness sores to new levels! These Medium Flyers allow you to have your design across a vast space.

Lanyards

Festival season is here, so people will be looking for the most convenient way to carry their keys around. Look no further than a lanyard. Lanyards have a long printing area so your logo can be printed over and over again, and seen by passers-by over and over again. It’s a great way to get your logo seen by lots of people in one place.

Express 20mm Full Colour Lanyards

Have your brand promoted repeatedly in full-colour along this 20mm lanyard!

Utilise this beautiful Summer weather by putting together your own campaign with promotional summer merchandise. There is such a huge range to choose from that we are sure whatever your theme is, there will be a product to match it.
