It’s a day for parades, picnics, apple pie, fireworks, and proudly displaying our patriotic spirit. But did you know that the Fourth of July has only been a paid federal holiday since 1938?
On July 4th every year, Americans from all walks of life wear their patriotism on their sleeves … or on their hats, sunglasses, umbrellas, or a host of other items. By placing your name and logo on a promo that displays the colors of the American flag, you can earn hundreds of valuable impressions for your brand during this patriotic season — and create a positive association between your organization and a beloved national holiday.
Here are a few ideas to consider:
Stars & Stripes Pencils: Everyone can find a use for a good pencil, and they’re compact enough to slip into envelopes for a direct mail campaign.
American stick flags: What’s Independence Day without flags? Help attendees at patriotic events, parades, or rallies show their support with colorful cotton American stick flags. They’re small enough to fit into a pocket, but they make a big impression!
MopTopper Red, White, and Blue Stylus Pen: A combination of pen, stylus, and microfiber screen cleaner, this popular MopTopper character now has a patriotic version that will stand out on any desk, leaving a lasting impression for your brand.
Patriotic Stars Umbrella: With the summer sun also comes the daily chance of afternoon showers, and your customers will need to keep an umbrella handy. Help them stay dry with a sturdy umbrella that also shows their patriotic spirit.
Flag-Shaped Hand Fans: Hand fans are the ideal “mini-billboards” where you can really let your brand shine — and in the July heat, they’re sure to be in high demand. Choose a flag shape and create a design that incorporates Old Glory with your brand for a promo that’s sure to be a hit at outdoor Independence Day celebrations.
Patriotic Sunglasses: The perfect giveaway at picnics, barbecues, and other outdoor events, these stylish shades ward off the bright summer sun with a distinctive all-American flair.
