I’m a soccer mom.
I have not one, but two kids, who play for travel soccer teams, so not only do I spend a lot of time behind the wheel of my minivan (I used to be cool), I spend a lot of time on the sidelines of soccer fields, usually languishing in one of Chicago’s various weather extremes. These weather extremes have necessitated the purchase of a whole lot of gear for the kids as well as for the rest of us cheering from the sidelines. What I’m thinking is that soccer clubs might as well profit from all this soccer-related-gear-shopping with some custom printed items that brand and market the club.
I’ve seen some clever vendors selling custom sweatshirts, t-shirts, and other soccer-related gear with great success at many a tournament. In fact, I’ve plunked down plenty of cash and plastic so the kids can sport the latest and greatest tournament-marketing gear.
This season of soccer is winding down, which means that travel soccer tryouts are almost upon us. It’s the perfect time for soccer clubs to print up some promotional products to set up for sale to new and returning members. Putting promotional, soccer-related gear up for sale at tryouts, tournaments, and other club related events is not only good marketing, it’s a great way to raise some needed funds for the club to purchase expensive new club items like soccer goals.
Check out some of the products the Show Your Logo sales team and I recommend that clubs offer up for sale to players, families, and fans.
Custom Drawstring Backpacks with Mesh Ball Pocket
These drawstring backpacks are an affordable way for kids to tote their soccer balls, water bottles, and other soccer gear to and from practice and games. The addition of the club’s name and logo make these bags a great gift to hand out to new players. They’d also be great for little kids who don’t necessarily need to tote as much gear as the big kids do.
Print or Embroider High Quality Custom Soccer Backpacks
My soccer playing kids have their own durable, custom printed backpacks showing off their club’s name and logo. With a pocket to hold their soccer balls, their water bottles, and plenty of space inside for necessities like sunscreen, lip balm, and soccer jerseys. All the kids on travel soccer have them and use them at practices and at games.
Soccer Ball Water Bottles
With the addition of the team name and logo on these fun, soccer-themed water bottles, players, parents, and fans alike can show their support for the team while staying hydrated.
32 oz Translucent Water Bottles
What’s not to like about these affordable water bottles? I like that you can see how much water is left in the bottle. I like that they have a generous 32 oz capacity. I like the simple push/pull lid. And they’re BPA free. With the addition of the club’s name and logo, they’re a winner.
Custom Water Jugs
Print the club’s name and logo on these 64 oz capacity water jugs. Don’t let those water bottles go dry on the hottest of days. These jugs will provide your players with a refill or two out on the field.
Soccer Sports Schedule Magnets
Kids and parents lead busy lives these days! Print the team schedule for the season on these sports schedule magnets and make the soccer schedule a little easier for everyone to manage.
Custom Car Magnets
Speaking of magnets, wouldn’t this custom magnet look fantastic riding on the back of my minivan? I like that it’s not a sticker. Some of us are fussy about not messing up our rides. My minivan travels to a whole lot of soccer events. Those are some seriously great locations to do some marketing for the team.
Custom Folding Bag Chairs
What are you practically guaranteed to see on the sidelines at every outdoor soccer game? A line up of folding bag chairs. Supportive parents would delight in cheering from custom chairs depicting their child’s team name and logo.
Custom Travel Blankets
What else do you see all over the soccer sidelines in chilly (or freezing) weather? Blankets, of course. These blankets can be customized to your specifications. A handy carrying handle makes toting this blanket between the field and the car a cinch.
Custom Shade Canopy
I highly recommend nabbing a spot in the shade of one of these easy-to-set-up shade canopies when you have to attend a child’s 2:00 PM soccer game in the dog days of August.
Custom Mini Personal Fans
Benched players and fans alike will appreciate the gentle breeze created by these personal mini fans under the sweltering sun.
Personal Water Misters
A little spritz from one of these personal water misters can do wonders to cool you down.
Custom Head Scarf
These wicking head scarves keep sweat and hair under control. Super important in the middle of big game! Customize them with your team name and logo.
Custom Print Athletic Sleeves
It’s hard to imagine wanting to pull these on now that’s it’s getting seasonably HOT in Chicagoland, but these athletic sleeves may be just the thing to warm up those soccer players on the coldest of days. A variety of colors helps you customize these athletic sleeves to meet your team’s needs.
Custom Soccer Stress Ball Keychains
Everyone has keys. Let players, parents, coaches, and fans alike show their team spirit when they tote their keys on these fun soccer ball keychains. Printed with the team’s name and logo, everyone will know who you’re rooting for.
Custom Print Soccer Pens
Stock the team store with affordable items like these custom soccer ball pens. Of course they also make great gifts and give aways, and with the addition of the club’s name, logo, and contact information, these pens will complete some serious marketing duties.
Players, friends, family, and fans can show their support for the team in most affordable way. These custom bracelets are fun and affordable for all.
With 750,000 promotional products available for customization, we have a product for every kind of customer on every kind of budget. Let us know what you’re looking for to brand and market your club. We’ll help you find the right products at the right price.

There’s no denying that promotional products are effective marketing and branding tools, but it’s essential to choose the right products for your target market. What else is essential? Making the right decision regarding selling versus giving away those promotional products.
When I was finally able to choose my electricity supplier instead of being forced to buy from ComEd, I immediately switched to a company that saves me a few bucks every month. Now the company sends me e-mail every once in a while, usually to inform me exactly how much money I have saved by using their company rather than ComEd. Cool. Anybody who knows me knows I love saving money. I’m a coupon clipper. I won’t pay finance charges. I shop electricity supplier rates.
Yesterday I got an e-mail from this electricity supplier inviting me to peruse their online store where they are selling promotional t-shirts. Naturally I had to click on over. I never pass up the opportunity to see what other companies are doing with promotional products.
Was I surprised to see an electricity supply company selling their own promotional t-shirts for $20 a pop? Uh…yes.
Maybe they’re paying too much for their custom t-shirts? Maybe I’m saving so much on my electric supply bill that they have to turn to overpriced t-shirts to turn a profit? I’m not sure. All I can tell you is that there is no way, no how I’d pay $20 for a promotional t-shirt advertising an electricity supply company. Am I wrong? Is anyone out there clamoring to pay $20 for one of their t-shirts? Employees? Perhaps. Close relatives? Maybe. Customers? I’m guessing probably not.
Of course there are plenty of companies and organizations that can successfully sell their own promotional products. There are retailers who sell their own promotional t-shirts to teens who feel compelled to advertise the fact that they paid $45 for their $3 t-shirt. There are team t-shirts that devoted fans must wear to show their loyalty. There are certain organizations we all feel inspired to support via logo apparel. I have paid over $20 for for t-shirts supporting the Avon Foundation, for example.
I bought a promotional t-shirt at Sea World for my daughter. It was nearly $20. I remember because I always grumble about how much it actually costs to produce one of these shirts at Show Your Logo versus how much these places charge you.
I’ve made similar purchases for my kids at zoos, theme parks, and national parks. I suppose they enjoy advertising where they’ve been. Those kinds of places can successfully sell their own promotional products.
What I’m suggesting is that unless you own something like a theme park or a zoo…or unless your brand is awash in undeniable cool-ness, it may be advisable to give away your promotional products. That electricity supplier has the custom t-shirts in hand just waiting to become walking billboards with a personal endorsement by the person wearing the t-shirt. That’s some pretty amazing advertising. Promotional products have a proven record of making the most impressions on people for the money. Fact!
What the electricity supplier should do is a t-shirt giveaway. Think of it. I’m out mowing the lawn wearing my free t-shirt showing off their company name and logo. (Fact: Give me a free, promotional t-shirt and I will wear it. Even if I hate it. I’ll wear it to mow the lawn. Or paint the house.) My neighbor stops by, sees my t-shirt, and asks about it. She may just be inspired to go save a few bucks by switching over, too. That’s not a bad deal for a t-shirt that can easily cost that electricity supplier less than $5. Imagine the implications of my decision to wear that promotional t-shirt to the grocery store or the pool this summer.
But I will not pay $20 for a t-shirt advertising an electricity supply company. I’m a customer who loves the savings provided by the company. Their t-shirts are even kind of funny…you know…for a company advertising cheaper electricity. But this money-saving mom is not going to pay $20 or even $5 to market their business. Fact: Their target market shops for cheap electricity. Did they miss the mark trying to market their overpriced t-shirts to someone like me?
Need a better deal on your next order of custom t-shirts? Need some expert advice on delivering the best promotional products out there for your target market? Contact the Show Your Logo sales team. They’ll help you out.

“A father should be his son’s first hero and his daughter’s first love.”

Here’s a list of Father’s Day inspired quotes to get you started.
1) “Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.” ~Bill Cosby

6) “It is a wise father that knows his own child.” ~William Shakespeare
7) “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” -~Mark Twain.
8) ”Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” ~Ruth E. Renkel
9) “If a son is uneducated, his dad is to blame.” ~Chinese Proverb
10) ”A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” ~Billy Graham

12) “Of all the titles that I’ve been privileged to have, the title of ‘dad’ has always been the best.” ~Ken Norton
13) “The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them.” ~Confucius
14) “Noble fathers have noble children.” ~Euripides
15) “My father taught me to work, but not to love it. I never did like to work, and I don’t deny it. I’d rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh — anything but work.” ~Abraham Lincoln

No two dads are alike, but I can’t say I’ve ever met a father who doesn’t like beer, BBQ, and some R&R. In that spirit, we’ve put together a list of promotional gifts we think will fit the bill for some Father’s Day advertising just fine.
Father’s Day 2013 lands on June 16th this year. If you have plans to make dads the target of your next marketing and business branding campaign, the time has come to place an order for the perfect promotional products.
The following is a list of products we feel confident dads will really appreciate, use, and enjoy. With the addition of your screen printed business or organization’s name and logo, you’ll create the opportunity to make hundreds of impressions on all those beloved dads. Everybody wins!
Custom Print Barbecue Sets
Is there a man alive who doesn’t love to grill? Or eat food hot off the grill? I have yet to meet him. Even the (one) staunch vegetarian dad I know loves to grill his exotic vegetables. Whether your dads are carnivores at heart or prefer smoky vegetables drizzled with balsamic vinegar, they’re all guaranteed to put this custom BBQ set to regular use.
Custom Print Bubba Keg Custom Drink Coolers
Dads can fill these custom printed Bubba Keg coolers with the beverage of their choice. Dual-wall insulation keeps those beverages good and cold, and the push-button spout makes for relaxed beverage dispensing. This manly cooler holds 128 oz of Dad’s favorite drink. You know. Beer.
Custom Bottle Coolers
Dads love cold drinks. Help him out when you gift him with these custom logo bottle coolers. Insert your glass bottle into this insulating, bottle-shaped-jacket, complete with zipper. Keeps the coldness inside the bottle!
Custom Coleman Coolers
Continuing with the BBQ/beer theme, we feel very strongly about custom coolers. At least my husband does. He collects promotional coolers the way some women collect shoes. We have at least one in every size. If you need a different size other than the one pictured, feel free to contact our sales team. You name your cooler. We’ll print on it.
Beverage Sling Can Coolers
Print these tube-shaped can coolers and dad can easily sling a six-pack over his shoulder, keeping those cans cool all the while. If you’re looking for an affordable, clever way for dad to transport beverages, this promo product is pretty slick. When dads have a passel of kids and gear to wrangle to events like a Father’s Day picnic, these coolers keep hands conveniently free.
Custom Folding Bag Chairs
Travel chairs are a promotional gift every dad can certainly use. They’re perfect for all kinds of outdoor events like a backyard BBQ or the kids’ soccer game. Of course, dad can simply set up these comfortable, portable chairs wherever he is and get some R&R in the sun. It’s what Father’s Day is all about!
Custom Key Chain Bottle Openers
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly promotional product for your Father’s Day marketing promotion, these bottle opener key chains may be just the thing. As long as he doesn’t lose his keys, he’ll always know where his bottle opener is.
Cheap Custom Sunglasses
Another super affordable option? Cheap custom sunglasses. If you’re looking for something higher end, we have those, too. Aviators? Check. Made of recycled materials? Check. Brand name? Check. Describe your ideal promotional sunglasses to our sales team and we’ll locate them for you.

Order blank t-shirts at wholesale prices for all those events that include DIY t-shirt crafts.
Most of our customers place orders for custom t-shirts showing off a high quality imprint. However, did you know that Show Your Logo can also sell blank t-shirts at wholesale prices? If you’re planning an event that requires more than a couple dozen blank t-shirts for your guests to design and decorate, purchasing wholesale t-shirts can be an easy way to save a few bucks.
If you’re not already following our Pinterest board titled “Fun With T-Shirts,” you may be unfamiliar with the concept of taking a bleach pen to a perfectly good t-shirt. My daughter and I, confessed Pinterest junkies, are always on the lookout for something new to create or try. The bleach pen t-shirt project we’re going to show you in pictures, right here, is inspired entirely by Pinterest. We decided to put this idea to the test.
Step One: Get a bleach pen. Don’t have one handy? In the mood to make your own? We’ve pinned a recipe for making your own bleach gel on that Fun With T-Shirts board. (All you’ll need is regular bleach, some cornstarch, and an empty glue bottle.)
Step Two: Locate a blank t-shirt that could use a little something. Old? New? Doesn’t matter. This 100% cotton t-shirt is completely blank and ready for some bleach.
Step Three: Place some newspaper or cardboard inside your t-shirt. You don’t want the bleach gel to leak through and ruin the back of your shirt.
Step Four: Got a design in mind? We found a cool design we lifted from the pages of the Sunday Target ad. Here’s the girl getting to work. (She’s a much better artist than I am!)
Step Five: After you’ve finished your design, let the bleach gel sit on the shirt for about 10 minutes.
Step Six: Remove the newspaper from inside your t-shirt. CAREFULLY rinse your t-shirt under some running water. Make sure you don’t let the bleach gel touch any other areas of your shirt.
Step Seven: Admire your finished product! It’s soaking wet and smells like bleach, so you’ll want to run it through the laundry.
We give this Pinterest project two thumbs up. It was a fun, affordable way to customize a blank t-shirt. We think it would be a great activity for a party or an event that calls for a crafty activity. If you’re in need of some blank t-shirts at wholesale prices, contact Show Your Logo today.

I love the idea of printing a succinct quote on promotional products.

Check out our list of 20 quotes related to those upcoming graduations.

5) “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela

Posted on May 6, 2013 by showyourlogo
Over the weekend I read about an inspirational not-for profit organization in the pages of Guideposts magazine. (Check them out on their Facebook Page “Guideposts for Kids Comfort Kit.”) This organization donates “comfort kits” to hospitalized children. What’s inside each kit? A coloring book, a stress ball, a CD of soothing music, a plush toy, a journal, a prayer card, and more. All items in the kit were selected to entertain and comfort sick children and their families.
I immediately thought that it would be completely feasible for hospital emergency rooms, children’s hospitals, and pediatric doctors’ offices to create their own promotional comfort kits.
My mind also flashed back to the day one of my boys, only one-year-old at the time, tripped over a toy and slammed his head against the corner of a piece of furniture. The trip to the emergency room culminated in several stitches as well as the gift of a promotional plush toy from the hospital emergency room staff. I remember how grateful I was at the time that it eased his terrified, hiccuping cries. That’s a powerful gift that you don’t soon forget!
What recommendations do we have for promotional items to include in care kits to be distributed by hospitals, emergency rooms, or doctors’ offices? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Print Drawstring Backpacks
Put your collection of soothing, entertaining gifts in these affordable, drawstring backpacks. They make terrific gift bags and can be used again and again for other purposes.
Custom Notebooks with Pen
People of all ages can find comfort and healing in journaling and drawing. Give them the tools that they need with the customized notebooks with built in pen.
Custom Printed Crayons
If you’re a kid and you’re going to draw in your custom notebook, you’re probably going to ask for crayons. Here they are.
Custom Print Stuffed Animals
I already mentioned how much comfort my own son received when he was handed a promotional stuffed animal during his emergency room visit. Your hospital, ER, or pediatric office can deliver the same sort of soothing with these promotional stuffed animals…or the stuffed animal of your choice. Promotional plush squirrel anyone? Feel free to contact our sales team to inquire about the stuffed creature of your choice.
Custom Stress Balls
I chose the heart shaped stress ball because it seemed the most soothing of shapes. However, sometimes laughter is the best medicine. If a custom stress pig is what you have in mind as part of your comfort care package, we have those, too. We have all the shapes and varieties. All you need to do is ask. No matter which shape you choose, squeezing on a stress ball can reduce some serious anxiety.
I don’t care how old or young you are. Everyone loves a soothing back massage, and you can’t screw it up when you use one of these promotional back massagers.
Promotional Putty Eggs
I know I just wrote that laughter is the best medicine, but I’m going to say it again. To quote Dr. Seuss, “Fun is good.” These putty eggs coupled with a sheet of Sunday morning comics = good times. Want to crack a kid up? Press some of this fun putty against the inky page of a comic strip and stretch out the faces.
Print Pocket Puzzles
Who says you need an iPod and an app to have a good time? These old-fashioned, promotional puzzles provide plenty of affordable entertainment. Want to race?
Logo Playing Cards
How many games can you play with a deck of playing cards? I’m not sure, but there are a whole lot out there. A simple game for little kids? Go Fish.
The promotional products here? Just the tip of the iceberg. If you have something specific in mind for your comfort care package, contact the experts on the Show Your Logo sales team. We’ll help you find the perfect give aways for your target market as well as your budget.
