Last-minute branded summer merchandise

It’s not too late to brand the coolest products this summer

Our first summer outside of COVID restrictions has been a wild one. From raging heatwaves to incredible Lionesses, the British summer has been nothing short of record-breaking! But it’s not too late to take advantage of the warmer weather in your next promotional marketing campaign.

With festivals, exhibitions, and outdoor events attendance levels being busier than ever, there’s no better time to promote your brand outside before the summer months come to a close.

Custom branded drinkware

With temperatures reaching a staggering 40°C in mid-July, keeping cool and staying hydrated has never been more important. At Sycal, we can offer a smorgasbord of custom-branded promotional sports and water bottles designed to resonate with a wide range of demographics. If you’re looking for something budget-friendly, stylish, practical, or environmentally conscious, we’ve got the bottles in all styles, shapes, and materials.

From classy metal options to unique fruit-straining bottles, there’s drinkware for everyone at Sycal.

One model that has seen a huge surge in demand this summer is the custom-branded Alice Bottle. More commonly referred to as “the Love Island bottle”, this double-walled white stainless steel option with straw and screw-on lid is a great product for those keeping up with the latest trends.

If you’re in the market for something sustainable, why not consider the H2O Eco Bottle manufactured from Prevented Ocean Plastics. These are materials that have been collected and recycled that would have ended up in our waterways and oceans. Every single bottle comes with a QR code linking to specific data of where the plastic in the product came from. These are personally one of my favourite products. They’re practical, stylish, and come with a great story to demonstrate your environmental concern. If you’d like to receive a free sample of this bottle, request our Summer Merchandise Catalogue and sample pack here!

With the hot weather expected to last longer through the year than in previous years, promotional water bottles are becoming an evergreen branded gift idea.

Custom branded umbrellas

It almost feels sacrilegious to talk about the rain in the summer months, but what is the British weather if not unpredictable? That’s why custom-branded umbrellas are still practical promotional marketing tools, even in July.

Custom branded umbrellas aren’t just a great defence against unexpected showers, they’re one of the most effective branded merchandise options to help showcase your logo and enhance your brand recognition. Research by BPMA discovered that compared to alternative branded products, promotional umbrellas are almost likely to be kept for 80% longer, meaning your logo or marketing message will be making more impressions over its product lifespan.

With features including storm-proofing, reflective linings, automatic opening and closing, there’s an umbrella for everyone this summer! Utilising Thermoprint technology, you can customise every panel of the umbrella in countless ways to ensure your logo, colour scheme and marketing message stands out, whatever the weather.

Fun in the sun!

Whether you’re inside, outside, at the beach, in your garden, or at a festival, summer is the time for letting your hair down and having some fun! At Sycal, we can source a huge range of promotional corporate gifts and giveaways designed to create smiles in the warmer weather.

If you’re looking for sports, games, or leisure equipment, we offer a wide range of professional and novelty levels of branded equipment. Whether you’re looking for frisbees, beachballs, table tennis paddles, golf equipment, official-size footballs and everything in between, we can put your logo and branding on it!

If you’re after something novel and fun to make an immediate impact, why not consider a custom-branded can holder? Maybe a custom-shaped lilo inflatable? Or even a branded deck chair! The possibilities are endless.
