Time to get Organised for next Season’s football Launch

The cricket season is barely underway so it may seem odd that we are promoting custom branded footballs. The value of promotional products is their longevity, and for that, your branding has to last.

To print custom branded footballs with a life lasting branding, on we need to print these at time of construction before final finishing layers have been applied. Otherwise, we risk the brand being rubbed off through abrasion and moisture.

From design confirmation to delivery it takes approximately 120-150 days (unless you want to foot the extra bill for airfreight). So if you want to include branded footballs; the best time to start is now.

We have a range of footballs available for all budget types from generic balls to major brands like Sherrin, Steeden, Gilbert, Spalding and Buffalo.

Full-colour printing is available across the whole ball and you can use the retail brand (eg Sherrin, Steeden etc) for extra credibility. There is miniature, mid-size and full-size versions available in a range of colours. Also, the materials range from leather to PVC and synthetic rubber.

Custom branded footballs work well for

  • Corporate Events
  • Incentive to buy programs
  • Trade shows*
  • Brand launches
  • Seasonal promotions

* One of my favourite trade show promotions is to give away a miniature branded ball to all attendees with the full size available on the stand for exchange (ie incentive to buy, contact details – whatever is the trade show objective).

A Promo with Bounce

Sporting items have been a popular promotional item for years due to their versatility as both a good branding option and useful and fun item for the customer. The affiliation of tennis with summer makes branded tennis balls a great summer promotion.

We supply generic tennis balls which are fine general promotions and for man’s best friend. However if your customers are serious tennis lovers; then a retail brand like the Wilson Tennis balls pictured are better suited as performance is important.

Bag Rules for Stadiums could be Clear

Security at stadiums for sporting and entertainment are becoming ever more restrictive. In a lot of NFL stadiums in the US bags are not permitted full stop. The same may soon apply here in Australia.

One option that the MCG and other Melbourne stadiums are assessing is “a clear bag policy”. This would allow security to quickly assess the contents for allowing not only quicker but also safer processing.

We have a range of clear PVC totes which are perfect for sporting events, concerts, picnics and more. They also make for great puns for tagline for products that have a “clear” message.

Bottle up for a World Cup

Bottle-up-for-a-World-Cup-BlogFor the 200 FIFA World Cup of the Brazilian soccer team uniform was made of recycled plastic bottles – about 8 bottles per jersey. The plastic bottles retrieved from landfills in Japan and Taiwan. After being melted down they were turned into yarn to produce the materials.

By using recycled PET bottles, Nike reduced their energy consumption by over 30% compared to normal polyester. They also saved over 13 millions bottles from going to landfill.

This same process is available in Australia to the promotional products industry. Pictured here are promotional polo shirts and caps which are made of 100% RPET recycled material. These promotional items also come with a swing tag proclaiming the environmental benefits of this material so you can subtly boast your green credentials.

How to be known for Safety

Marketing messages work best when they work on the subconscious of the recipient. This is because the recipient has a feeling of self discovery which creates ownership of the message.

Promotional LED Light Cap

LED Light Cap

One way to use this little gem is to use promotional products that send an underlying message. We usually find this works best when the branding message is with no mention of the capabilities of the promotional product.

Hi Vis Wrist Band

An example here is to use personal safety products like Hi Vis Wristbands for runners, LED lights that clip onto backpacks and bicycles. You brand is exposed to your customer with a product that protects them – now that’s a great place to be.
