I love looking over my shoulder to see what folks in the USA have done in the promotional merchandise space. Australia traditionally has followed trends from the USA when it comes to custom branded merchandise. Some of the best merchandise I have seen have come from sporting ones, such as the US Golf Open Championship.
Trends from Golf Event
Stylish garments and hybrid types of clothing always come from the USA. In most instances, they hit the mark. Take this sweater, for example. It looks and feels like a standard custom branded sweater, but add a Zip, and a high shawl collar, and you get something quite spectacular.
Natural Wood look Cases
What makes regular things look classy? The US PGA knows I know, and now you know too. The answer is, wood combined with laser engraving. These personalised phone cases feature wood grain textures and a laser engraved graphic onto the surface.
Stripes on Shirts
Another way to add instant class to a garment is to add strips. These promotional polo shirts with stripes across the body and chest is a perfect example. Lines make things distinctive and keep things interesting.
Poker Dots on Clothing
With better branding techniques, it means companies like ours can create custom branded hats and shirts with more custom branding coverage. The USPGA created this merchandise, with a cap and shirt that feature graphics that cover the surface of the garment. Looks pretty good right?
Pastel Colour Tees
Black and white colours have always been considered neutral tones. This means they are safe options that enable the item to be used in a variety of settings. There is a 3rd option when you need something neutral, though. The 3rd option is pastel colours. Softer pastel colour tee shirts generally have a broad appeal and is a good option, when black and white may be a little too plain for your liking.
