Summer is the perfect time to find new customers and grow your business! Here are a few ways to capitalize on branding as summer approaches:

  • Decorate a booth at your local fair. Use a custom table cover or banner to draw attention to your products or services.  
  • Give custom tote bags to loyal customers at farmers’ markets. They will appreciate having a sturdy bag for their produce and will remember your brand.  
  • Make summer giveaways fun by handing out custom Frisbees® with your logo at sporting events! 
  • Don’t forget to show appreciation for your workers! Custom hats make excellent summer gift ideas for employees working outside. Your office staff is sure to love USB fans they can plug into their computers!
