We’re taking a cue from Oscar buzz this Sunday, to focus on past movie swag!
The array of iconic, one-of-a-kind collectors’ items in the book “For Promotional Use Only” is a window into what has been done in the past and what to look forward to in trends in the future. Thanks to this amazing book, a whole new generation gets to appreciate the power of branded merch has in creating exciting and building a cult following.
Some of the interesting pieces showcased in the book will surely make you nostalgic:
In current times, branded merchandise has become a unique income stream and buzz-generator for celebrities like Justin Bieber and Travis Scott, both of whom have ushered in a New Era of trendy, branded clothing to promote their music. Celebrities aren’t the only people doing it, late last year Tim Hortons came out with their limited edition clothing and No Frills is known to sell their “No Name” limited edition items. Every week there seems to be another special merch drop by a big brand name which is then almost immediately sold out.
Take a cue from this trend and create a marketing strategy that includes products – or even one product – that would only be available for a limited time and/or in limited numbers. It can be a brand-new product or a product with new decoration. It can be created for a special event or celebration, or as a reward for a special achievement. These products, once sold or given out, are no more after a certain time or quantity. It’s really just all about creating buzz, excitement, and the FOMO feeling!
With inspiration from above here are some fun merchandise ideas we can implement for your big event!
Keychains For a New Home or Office
After celebrating the big event, its nice for your employees to have a little something to take away a reminder of the occasion. A small token like a keychain is useful.
Limited Edition Headwear
Headwear makes a great collectible piece for companies that may be debuting special team or section logos. Keep them fresh with different designs so each one will be sought after by employees that are lucky enough to receive them!
Special Event Gear
New Product Launch? New office or store opening? Is your company joining together to do volunteer work or run a charity race! Make it more meaningful by creating a team uniform to bond together and remember the excitement. We can help you create just about any memorable apparel pieces to cherish long after the event has passed.
When it comes to creating limited edition merch, remember to keep it fresh, think out of the box, and create a lasting memory that all your team members will remember for the coming years.
