Promotional ponchos are a damn versatile and practical way to advertise your biz. These branded items can be rocked at outdoor events like sports games or even for rainy days when ya don't wanna get soaked. But with so many bloody styles and materials out there, it can be a bit bloody overwhelming trying to pick the right one. No worries, mate! In this article, we'll give you some pointers to help make your decision easier.

  • Choosing the right material (waterproof vs water-resistant, PVC vs PEVA, nylon vs polyester) is crucial for effectiveness and durability.
  • Eco-friendly, reusable options are becoming increasingly popular, catering to consumers with environmentally conscious values.
  • The Uniform Shop's collaboration with Cubic Promote showcased how promotional ponchos can boost brand awareness and drive customer engagement.

Best Materials:

Waterproof vs Water-Resistant

One of the first things to consider when choosing a material for your promotional poncho is whether it should be waterproof or water-resistant. While both options offer some level of protection against rain and moisture, they differ in their ability to withstand prolonged exposure to wet weather.


PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and PEVA (polyethylene vinyl acetate) are two popular materials used in promotional ponchos. They're lightweight, durable, and easy to print on. However, they also have different properties that make them suitable for different types of events.

Nylon vs Polyester

Nylon and polyester, mate, are synthetic fabrics that are top-notch when it comes to sturdiness and flexibility. They're often used in crafting durable backpacks or trendy jackets, but who knew they would be ace choices for ponchos too? With their breathable properties, it helps reduce the buildup of moisture under the poncho while wearing them over long periods - especially perfect during those scorching summer months!

Reusable Options

Switching to reusable clean-shower liners and bags instead of one-time use items might sound unexpected for some, but from an eco-friendly angle given our planet's ever-changing state, it has become more relevant in contemporary consumer culture! These environmentally friendly options cater to those who look inwardly on their values without compromising performance. As more companies sustain their effort towards maintaining a lasting message with universal standards, this trend will steadily grow!

Custom Printing Options

Selecting materials is important when planning what design features are achievable. Some fabrics, like nylon or polyester, can be printed with any colour imaginable and offer high-resolution images on their surfaces while others need vinyl transfer options to achieve unique designs.

Perfect Promotional Tools

The Uniform Shop, a leading provider of workwear and uniforms, approached Cubic Promote to create an innovative marketing solution for their outdoor trade show. The decision was made to distribute promotional ponchos, customized with their logo and brand messaging. As weather conditions turned unpredictable, attendees flocked to The Uniform Shop's booth, eager to grab a poncho and stay dry. The striking design and practicality of the ponchos sparked conversations and led to an increase in social media engagement. The Uniform Shop's collaboration with Cubic Promote proved that promotional ponchos are an effective way to boost brand awareness and drive customer engagement at outdoor events.

Any dodgy decisions may damage your brand's reputation and cause potential revenue loss - you don't want that! A top-quality poncho could be just what your marketing strategy needs to stand out in the crowd mate.
