Hot Trends in Promotional Products for 2017

The new year is here, which means for many businesses and organizations it’s time to begin planning their promotional product budgets for the next 12 months. In some cases, it’s also time to begin ordering the products for the whole year. If this is you, you may be worried that ordering a product at the beginning of the year means it may be outdated or out of demand by the end of the year.

Fear not, here are several trends that are guaranteed to still be hot throughout 2017.

 

Going Green in 2017

Going Green

This has been a trend for years, but it is not showing any signs of slowing down in 2017. Promotional products that are made with environmentally friendly materials or designed to help users live their everyday lives with a green touch are sure to be in high demand.

Heathered Fabric

Heathered fabric was the go-to style for t-shirts and other clothing items last year, and it will certainly continue to dominate in 2017. The texture of combining several slightly differently colored fabrics is becoming the standard for high-quality, fashionable garments throughout the industry.

This year, there are even more products, styles and colors that feature heathered fabric. No matter what product you want to promote your business, there are options that feature this in-demand style.

Latest and Greatest Tech

Every year, consumers and business owners are buying the latest gadgets and updating their current tech. One of the downsides of getting new gadgets is the need to replace all of the accessories that go along with it. If your brand can save your customers a little bit of money by giving out something they’ll use every day with their new tech gear, they’ll be very thankful.

Power banks, like this UL Listed Power Bank with Speaker, are extremely popular since battery life with new phones never seems to be enough for a whole day’s use or a long flight.

Value of Quality

If there’s one trend that applies to every promotional product in every industry, it’s this: the quality of your product has never been more important. The promotional products you use to promote your brand are an extension of your brand. You wouldn’t want to promote your business with an inferior product.

Now, however, consumers are valuing this quality more than ever. Businesses know the value of promotional products to their businesses, and so many are giving away great products. Your customers can’t use every promotional product they receive, so they will gravitate to the more quality product.
