The cost effectiveness and customizability of screen printed apparel and promotional products is usually well taken note of by entrepreneurs during the hot summer months, but it would be a mistake to neglect the winter season, for there are numerous smart winter wear items you can get screen printed as well.
In fact, whether you're talking about employee uniforms, promotional giveaways, team apparel, or customized apparel for clubs and other organizations - winter provides many unique opportunities for "smart" screen printing strategies.
Here are 6 representative ideas on how you can incorporate screen printed products into the winter season:
1. Branded Beanies
Even in Florida, a winter hat makes life more comfortable on the coldest days of the year. Besides that, beanies are in style and extraordinarily comfortable, and you can custom brand "light duty beanies" for warmer climates. A logo or brand name running along the top front center of the hat is all the printing it will need, in conjunction with your company colors, to be effective.
2. Jackets & Hoodies
No matter where you live, you grow accustomed to the climate and when it's the coldest time of year, you may want a jacket, windbreaker, or hoodie. In Florida, that may mean at temperatures that would be considered mild in more northerly states. For your most loyal customers or for your hardest-working employees, a quality, branded jacket or hoodie can be a welcome reward. And you can say essentially the same thing for custom embroidered sweaters!
3. Warm Driving Gloves
You don't normally need gloves, even in the winter, in the Sunshine State, though there are a few exceptions. But make them sufficiently warm and comfortable and add easy gripping ability to the inside fingers and palm areas - and your branded winter gloves can double as nifty driving gloves.
4. Jogging Accessories
With hurricane season past and not too much rain or wind, December, January, and February in Florida can be a great time for people to get out and jog. Why not create some branded jogging pants and/or sweatshirts, along with tote bags, water bottles, and headbands? Throw in some screen-printed Ts as usual for the warmer days, and you can generate high customer satisfaction among sports and exercise enthusiasts via promotional giveaways.
5. Coffee & Cocoa Mugs
Let's face it, the colder it is, the more hot drinks people are going to consume. Winter is the time for more coffee drinking, hot tea, cocoa in a mug, and hot apple cider! A relatively inexpensive way to show your customers you care and to promote your business is through brand printed mugs.
6. Holiday Specific Products
Finally, we should be remiss to not mention the potential for holiday specific screen printed winter wear and promotional products. Pair your brand colors, name, and logo with pictures or products to do with Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's Eve & Day, Valentine's Day, and more, and you find a way to meaningfully connect with your customers in a memorable way.
