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!

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.

Print your logo on promotional tie dye t-shirts in a variety of eye-catching colors. Groovy!
In one of last week’s posts you learned that the ancient Greeks and Romans were fond of flip flops. This week we’re sharing another summer-themed promotional product brought to you by some ancient people: the process of tie dyeing! The earliest surviving evidence of tie dyeing dates back to about 500 AD and Peru. Modern tie dyeing (you know…the psychedelic kind) became popular in the late 1960′s and into the 1970′s thanks to the likes of rockers like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and the Rolling Stones.
Tie dye never entirely faded away. Many products, including promotional products available for customization right here at Show Your Logo, come in ultra cool tie dye patterns.
Tie dye says summer to me. It takes me back to tie dyeing white t-shirts using rubber bands and buckets filled with RIT dye at summer camp.
In need of some tie dye promotional products to brand your business this summer? Check out the many varied promo items available in tie dye looks ranging from rainbow to complimentary colors to a bright, uniform look.

National Hot Dog Day may not be an officially recognized holiday, but it’s certainly a holiday worth celebrating as evidenced by the fact that Americans consume approximately 7 billion hot dogs in an average summer. In 2012, Americans spent $1.7 billion on hot dogs in grocery stores alone. We clearly have some cash to burn when it comes to the hot dog.
You may or may not be in the business of hot dogs, but you may just want to capitalize on Americans’ adoration of these delicious tubes of salty, processed meat. How so? Whether or not you own a chain of hot dog stands, hitch your logo to a celebration of National Hot Dog day with some fun, affordable, hot dog-themed promotional products.
National Hot Dog Day is celebrated every July 23rd. Plenty of time to order the perfect promotional products to commemorate the day and put your marketing dollars to work.
Show Your Logo is your source for custom printed logo apparel. Do you have a hot dog-themed design in mind? Our in-house graphic arts team can work with you to design the perfect custom t-shirts, employee polo shirts, and embroidered baseball caps.
Serving up hot dogs at your company picnic on National Hot Dog Day? Set everybody up with custom printed aprons to show off your company name and logo. Once the hot dogs are gone, everyone can hang onto a useful promotional product to commemorate the day.
Promotional Non Woven Aprons
Two front pockets and two tie straps as well as water resistant polypropylene make these aprons a durable, affordable choice for all those grill masters.
Custom Print Grill Cooler Sets
What else could the people manning the grill possibly need on National Hot Dog Day? The grill itself, of course. We offer a huge selection of custom printed grills. Here’s one we think is pretty cool—the carrying case doubles as a beverage cooler.
Best practice when grilling hot dogs: use tongs instead of a fork to remove the dogs from the grill. Piercing the hot dog allows juices to escape, which could result in a dry hot dog. Custom printed tongs, therefore, may just be the perfect give away to brand your business on National Hot Dog Day on the cheap.
And if you DO own one of those hot dog stands? If you ARE in the business of selling your brand of hot dogs to supermarkets and restaurants? You may just want to create a memorable way for your customers to contact you. Check out these fun-filled, affordable hot dog-shaped stress relievers:
Hot Dog Stress Reliever with Mustard
Approximately 87.6% of adults identify mustard as their favorite hot dog condiment. (Kids prefer ketchup.)
Hot Dog Stress Reliever Toy with Mustard and Relish
These delectable looking dogs truly are made of foam.
Chili Cheese Dog Keychain Stress Relievers
It’s a chili dog. It’s a stress reliever toy. It’s a keychain. It’s also a great marketing tool capable of reminding your customers of your company name and logo and phone number each time they reach for their keys. Reaching for their keys just might make them hungry for a chili dog, too.
Speaking of condiments like mustard, ketchup, relish, and chili, many people like a few condiments to choose from when consuming hot dogs. Set them up for successful hot dog consumption with custom printed condiment accessories. Take a look at a few options that would make your company name and logo a stand out among the ketchup, mustard, relish, and diced onions:
Promotional Condiment Squeeze Bottles
Print on these squeeze bottles and keep the hot dog bar well-stocked with the basics like ketchup and mustard. These condiment bottles also make excellent, affordable giveaways.
Custom Print Salt and Pepper Shakers
These sturdy acrylic salt and pepper shakers can be printed with your logo as well as your contact information. Brand your business from every table! Everyone can use a salt and pepper shaker. Make them part of your hot dog-themed promotional give away.
Hungry for more great promotional product ideas? The sales team at Show Your Logo is always chock full of promotional product marketing ideas perfect for your brand as well as your budget. Contact them today for all your promo item needs.

June 21st marks the first official day of summer. Get your flip flops on, apply some sunscreen, don’t forget your hat, and head outside to soak up the sun. What to do while you’re out there? If you’re not lounging in a comfy promotional bag chair or diving into a refreshing blue pool, you may just wish you had some outdoor games custom printed with your very own company logo.
And if you don’t happen to own your own company, you may be an employee of a company who would most appreciate the gift of a logoed outdoor game. Printed outdoor games make excellent gifts for employees and customers alike.
Show Your Logo can print on outdoor games for all kinds of customers on all kinds of budgets. We’ve gathered up a few examples to show you. Take a look.
Promotional Squirt Guns
Looking for classic, affordable summer fun to brand your business? I don’t care how old you are. Squirt gun fights on a hot summer day are always a blast.
Custom Printed Foam Dart Guns
And if you don’t want to get wet at your outdoor event? Consider affordable promotional foam dart guns. Good times.
Logo Cornhole Boards and Bags Game
Customize cornhole boards and bags to your specifications. Here’s a classic game that will be pulled out of the garage or storage shed for all kinds of outdoor events for years to come. Give your logo and marketing dollars some staying power with this great promotional product.
Custom Ring Toss Games
Here’s a great giveaway that’s easily transported to the beach, to picnics, and to the park. This is an affordable, super portable option in outdoor promo games.
Personalized Horseshoe Game Set
The game of horseshoe tossing is reportedly traced right back to the ancient Romans who pitched metal rings into stakes pounded into the ground. Whether or not they utilized horseshoes is open for debate. No matter. The rings supplied with this game of horseshoes aren’t actually horseshoes, but they’ll do nicely for some summer time, outdoor entertainment.
Custom Printed Croquet Sets
Croquet sets are synonymous with English tea and Alice In Wonderland. If you’re planning a more formal outdoor event (you know…sans squirt guns), this personalized croquet set will fit in just fine.
Logo Paddle Ball Sets
What do I like about this paddle ball set? The see-through case that keeps it all together. I don’t want to go searching around the garage for the second paddle or that little blue ball. Customize this outdoor game with your logo your marketing dollars are certain to score big.
Promotional Bocce Sets
Here’s another example of an outdoor game with some history and some dignity. (You know…if your brand isn’t about squirt guns and foam darts.) Customize this classy set with your company logo.
Shuffleboard Sets Customized with Your Logo
What does a game of shuffleboard say to you? I’m thinking cruise ships and motels. Shuffleboard speaks of lazy days. These scoreboards aren’t painted on the asphalt like the kind I remember. Pick up the aluminum scoreboards and transport them (and your logo) wherever you want to go.
Print on Tetherball Sets
This set includes durable steel posts. If you’re in need of some high energy find (think a few notches above shuffleboard), an intense game of tetherball may be just the thing.
Do you have another outdoor game in mind? The team at Show Your Logo is more than happy to find the promotional products you need or desperately want to play at your upcoming event. Give us a call today.
