Darius Rucker said, “There’s two times of the year for me: Football season, and waiting for football season.”
With the preseason here, Fantasy Leagues are gearing up and parties are being planned all across the country. That’s not the only thing getting into full swing, though. School football teams and themed promotions are just around the corner, too, and for that we have the perfect smorgasbord to fulfill all of your game day events!
Fun to throw and more fun still as a work day distraction (Show Your Logo tested & approved), plastic and foam footballs are great items to toss out at events with your logo printed on the side. Both allow for a double sided imprint and are available in a wide array of colors allowing you to replicate your own or your local team’s colors!
For something a little less traditional but with great reusability are the sports themed bags. These vary based on sports and themes and are preprinted with the appropriate detailing for the ball imprint.
Nothing says support like having a magnet or bumper sticker with your favorite team on it! (Okay, plenty of other things probably say it more, but none are as fun as these!) Coming in all different shapes and sizes, these magnets feature a magnificently wide imprint area to include school logos, mascots, business information, and more.
Another item that comes ready and shaped in any sports theme you like, cheering sticks are a great way to show off some flare on game day. They also can make great parade or assembly giveaways as they are lightweight and easy to throw. These can also go hand in hand with our inflatable noisemakers that, while they are limited to a single shape, come in a wide array of colors so you can still show team spirit!
Hydration is the key at sporting events whether you’re a player or spectator. Some of those dog days of summer games require water while out in that early evening sun, and those fall nighttime games will leave you wanting some coffee or hot chocolate. The good news is that all of these items make for great giveaways at games, items to sell, or promotional products with team logos.
We Americans love our sports, but I don’t know too many that enjoy those bleacher seats. Stadium cushions offer a large imprint area and a wide variety of colors. The advertising options and price point make these a fantastic option for any business looking to promote themselves during game season.
There are two different versions of this blanket that we feature. One is all fleece while the other has a tarp bottom. While there are not as many color options with this item, I highly recommend the blanket with the tarp. I took one to Comic Con this year and it worked great when stuck sitting in the grass during those long Hall H lines during the wee hours of the morning. They’re large enough for two people to lie down on or three to sit and allow a waterproof cushion between you and the ground.
This list really only scratches the surface on all the options we offer for sports giveaways, and just because we’re bringing this blog out at the start of football season doesn’t mean we’re just limited to football for promotional products. Browse our website or give us a call today at 888-253-5800 for any recommendations or inquiries for your team or business so we can start helping you show your logo!

With winter finally behind us, it is time to start thinking about outdoor activities. Yay! Let’s get some vitamin D! I love being outdoors. I like running with my crazy, uncontrollable chocolate lab. Did I mention he was crazy? Yeah, he actually walks me around. I love biking, or hiking, and I have definitely been known to do absolutely nothing except lounge around on my back porch while drinking one too many pale ales. The outdoor activity I like to do most though? PICNICKING! Who doesn’t like to go on a picnic? Ah, I can just picture it now. A delicious sandwich is moments away from hitting my mouth. An ice cold beer is chilling in my cooler. The warm breeze is flowing through my hair. Tall grass is slowly itching my legs, and ants are crawling up my shorts. Wait. WHAT?!?! Ants up my shorts? Okay, I can see why picnics are not everyone’s thing. BUT, thanks to ShowYourLogo.com, and its low cost travel products, anyone can have the perfect picnic this season.
First things first. We need to get rid of those ants in my pants. I mean, what if they are fire ants? Then, my pants would be on fire!! So, I need to get a blanket. Not just any blanket though. I only have two hands, and if my infant son and previously mentioned dog come along, I really have no hands. So, I need something with a strap to rest on my shoulder. I recommend the custom printed roll up blanket . It has a velcro closure and is perfect to sit on during a any outdoor event. It will be particularly hard for the ants to climb up on the blanket, and the itchy grass will no longer irritate my legs. #Winning!
Next, of course I have a salad. Regular Tupperware just doesn’t get the job done. I have no where to put my dressing!! This is why the 3 piece salad shaker is a must for any traveler. This handy 4 cup plastic container includes a plastic fork, and a removable 4 table spoon salad dressing holder. Now, I wouldn’t eat salad any other way.
Subsequently, after eating, we want nothing more than an ice cold beverage. Ever have a cooler packed with a bunch of cans, and when you open the bag you come to realize that all of your cans have toppled over and have been partying without you? Ever open said can and gotten drenched because of this shaken disaster? Yes, me too. The round insulated cooler bag has rid me of hyper carbonation by allowing me to pack the cans in a round formation, keeping all of them compact until we are ready to drink them. I can fit up to 12 cans plus ice and everything stays nice and cold thanks to the foil laminated PE lining.
The last essential for this perfect picnic is a portable Bluetooth speaker. From the relaxing sounds of Jimmy Buffet, to the dance party jams of Jay-Z, sync this little guy up to your device for big sound of whatever music you prefer! Can’t connect? Don’t worry, this product also has an auxiliary input jack for connecting non- Bluetooth devices. Can’t miss a call? You are covered, as this product also has a microphone and answering capabilities.
Looking for something to do this summer? Go have a picnic! Now that you have the best how to guide listing the best picnic products out there, this will be one picnic you will want to repeat for years to come!

Hopefully you’ve had time to digest your Thanksgiving turkey, wash all that china, and put up the decor for the holiday you celebrate in December. Now that it’s Monday morning and you’re back in front of your computer shopping for holiday gifts for your family and friends, it’s time to think about what you’ll be giving your employees, customers, and clients, too.
It can be challenging to think up a gift the whole office will love, but there’s an easy solution. In fact, there’s an easy solution that’s not only budget-friendly, but shows off your logo as well.
What’s a gift everyone loves?
Print your logo on snack food, and you’ve created an affordable holiday giveaway everyone can sink their teeth into.
Here are a few Show Your Logo favorites, starting with that cookie tin up above. Each tin comes with four each of gourmet chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, chocolate double chip and crystal sugar cookies. There’s enough here for a small office to share. Tins can be customized with four color art, a photo, or your company logo. Stock holiday designs are also available.
Here’s a tasty classic. Print your message or company logo directly on these 2 1/2″ round cookies. Cookies are individually cello wrapped and come gift-giving-ready in a tasteful organza bag. Promotional gift giving doesn’t get easier than this!
Ok, we do have plenty of easy-to-give promos to choose from. Here’s another option, all boxed and ready to go. All you have to do is pick up the phone, place an order, and sign for delivery before handing over these gift sets to your employees or customers. Each of these gifts sets includes a custom printed mug in your choice of colors: black, blue, brown, cream, green, or red. Add your choice of packaged snack foods (in a wealth of choices like mints, chocolates, nuts), a gift box with ribbon and you’re good to go this holiday season.
Customize mug stuffers with your logo and give more than a promotional mug these holiday season. Choose from a wide assortment of candies and snacks to include in these cello bags–available in gold dots, red swirl, and black diamond As for the snack food to include in the cello bags, I recommend anything chocolate. However, you can go with mints, gum, cashews, Skittles, animal crackers, and more. Tons of choices!
Speaking of mug stuffers, here’s an adorable option. Check out these S’mores mugs stuffers. Each kit includes two graham cracker sheets, one Hershey’s Milk chocolate bar, and two marshmallows to make two S’mores servings.
Chocolate covered pretzels? Yes, please. Customize the tasteful gift box (tied with gold ribbon). Inside you’ll find six gourmet pretzels in three irresistible flavors: milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate with candy coating.
Make holiday gift giving easy on yourself, on your budget, and and your marketing efforts when you customize snack food gifts at Show Your Logo.

We’re expecting record high temperatures in Chicagoland today, but I’m already thinking about the upcoming holidays. Before long, all the retailers will be on the same page, displaying twinkling holiday string lights right alongside the garish Halloween decor. I like to get a jump on things because A) I don’t like to pay full price for anything. Ever. And, B) the holidays are a humongous, overwhelming project between all the gift selection, wrapping, distribution, cooking, cleaning, and entertaining. In other words, the sooner I get started, the better.
The sooner you start thinking about your order of promotional calendars for the New Year the better, too. Waiting until December to order your promotional calendars is kind of like assuming you can sleep in until ten on Black Friday and still find all those amazing good deals at Target. Not a chance, right? By 11.m. on Black Friday, it’s all picked over. The items on your shopping list are no where to be found.
Get a jump on your promotion for the upcoming new year and be certain you can get your hands on the products you want. There are so many promotional calendars to choose from. Here’s a small sampling to get the ideas flowing.
Promotional Wall Calendars
Spiral bound or stapled? Wildlife, barns, beaches, mountains, or classic cars? Whatever theme you could want in stock image wall calendars, chances are it’s out there. Just ask. We’re more than happy to help you find the wall calendar that best fits your brand or promotional needs.
Power Magnet Calendars
If you’re going to distribute magnetic calendars, the magnet might as well be a tough as can be. This magnetic calendar is thicker and stronger than most, meaning it can secure up to eight pieces of paper. Display the date, promote your business, and help your customers organize their work spaces with one great product.
Custom Printed Mouse Pad Calendars
This product is like giving away two products in one. Keep your company name, logo, and contact information accessible all year long when you give away these practical promotional products.
Magnetic Photo Frame Calendars
Customized magnetic photo frame calendars will keep loved ones visible alongside your logo for the long haul.
Promotional Desk Calendars
These handy, affordable promos come with a convenient mailing envelope. Not in the mood for stuffing the calendars inside the envelopes? Call for pricing on factory assembly.
Daily Cube Calendars
All your clients and customers can benefit from one of these promotional daily cube calendars on their desk at home or at the office. Display your company information on a product they’re going to look at all year long.
Case of Sticky Notes with Calendar
This imitation leather case sports a high end look while providing your customers with some practical items like a selection of sticky notes and flags as well as calendar.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Take care of that order of promotional calendars for the new year well before Black Friday. Our sales team is happy to help you find the promotional calendars you need to suit your branding needs as well as your budget.

First stop? Superman…the ride. Afterwards, we were conveniently shuttled through the Super Hero gift shop. Check out those logoed acrylic tumblers. We can get you those tumblers for a LOT LESS.
This blogger took some time out for the 4th of July weekend to spend some quality time with the kids. One of our stops? Chicagoland’s amusement park Great America. Even so, promotional products are usually on the brain, even after it’s been scrambled on that horrible roller coaster aptly named “Demon.” (Take out your earrings. Pack a helment. And ibuprofen.)
I had to snap a picture of the lovely, blue acrylic tumblers I spotted after we took a flight on Superman. Wow, Great America. Mark those up much? No biggie. We like sipping from our very own custom printed tumblers anyway.
As we cruised around the park, I continued to take pictures of all the logoed stuff. Just for you. And everywhere I looked, people were looking, touching, admiring, and plunking down their cash and credit to take it all home. What a wonderful world when you can make money on your own advertising stuff! Good for you, Great America! As for the rest of you? If your brand can swing it, do it!
In addition to those fun acrylic tumblers, I spotted plenty of other logoed merchandise.
The proof is in the park. Everyone loves, loves, loves promotional products.
Custom Sunglasses with Printed Lenses
These were everywhere. They’re all the rage. YES, you can see right through them. YES, Show Your Logo can customize sunglasses just like these to suit your brand, and I promise it will cost you way, way less than what G.A. is charging per item.
Light Up Stuffed Animals in Bags
Holy cats, Batman. This toy is cute, comes with its own carrying bag, and there’s a light up feature. Thank goodness my nine-year-old triplets are boys. Had they been girls, I probably wouldn’t have escaped this gift store without plunking down my own MasterCard. What kind of stuffed animals can Show Your Logo print for you? You name it. We’ll print on it.
Thrill Apparel…as in Custom T-Shirts and Promotional Hats
Here you were able to purchase the appropriate merchandise to let the world know you were brave enough to try out X-Flight.
I was not one of them.
As if you needed any proof that people love their promotional t-shirts, hats, stuffed animals, acrylic tumblers and more. We sell it all right here for thrilling low prices.

Custom Print on Car Coolers
