Hats in the U.S. generate 2,288 impressions, in their lifetime. And especially in the summer heat, your prospective clients will be thrilled for added sun protection.

Of course, you can’t consider apparel without thinking about the classic T-shirt. Clients love T-shirts for their comfortable fit, versatility and easy care. In fact, 44 percent of U.S. consumers own a promotional T-shirt, which means if you’re not making them, your competition probably is. With a T-shirt in your lineup, your brand will garner impressions at gyms, sporting events, concerts and practically everywhere else.
Currently, “athleisure” is the word heard around the world. Everyone from models to spinning instructors have embraced the athletic trend and bridged the gap from gym clothes and street wear. Any piece of apparel that features moisture-wicking and breathable properties is a product your prospective clients will appreciate.
While they’re more expensive to produce, jackets are always a safe bet for building your brand. If you need proof, 95 percent of those who own logoed outerwear can recall the advertiser’s name.
