Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is vital to the wellbeing of many businesses and their staff and customers. PPE is a huge category with a vast range of product encompassed; from items like helmets and hi-vis jackets to face masks, gloves and goggles. A ll of these items can be customised with your business name or logo. Some businesses already do this but a lot provide unbranded equipment as standard.
If you’re a start-up or entrepreneur, you may think that having branded items such as logo workwear is something of a luxury when there are so many other demands on your budget; from advertising, marketing and staff to premises, packaging, raw materials and equipment, it can be hard to know where to start.
The short simple answer is, yes. Even with the huge diversity in modern day event types they could all benefit from free branded giveaways, especially if your particular event occurs annually or just a few times per year. There are countless examples of events with incredibly successful strategies involving the use of branded giveaways. Giving away embroidered hoodies at a music festival or sporting event is a sure fire way to further knowledge of the event itself but it can also help to make future events more successful by raising awareness and creating a stronger link between the customer and the even itself.
Events like iron man contests, The Colour Run and most notably the increasingly popular obstacle race brand Tough Mudder are challenging events that entrants sign up for and pay to compete in. Other events like marathons have given away branded t-shirts to competitors for a long time. These are great examples of the types of events really capitalising on branded giveaways but, the benefits aren’t just restricted to the sporting area. Guided tours, gaming competitions, charity events, motor racing… the list is almost endless.
So, whether you’re running a Tough Mudder or planning a charity fundraiser, what are the upsides of investing some of your marketing or production budget in branded giveaways?
Increased Customer Satisfaction
If your event requires participants or attendees to pay to entre, providing a free t-shirt or other similar item goes a long way to creating goodwill. While the item itself may not have a huge cash value, we all love the feeling that we’re getting a great deal. Consumers like to have something physical to show for their spend – a free branded gift at registration goes a long way to creating a happy, satisfied customer.
Anyone who gets a free shirt or similar won’t just get it and place it in their cupboard never to be seen again, particularly for the events in which the giveaway item is a sign of accomplishment. Anyone receiving a branded item for participating in an event such as a marathon will likely take pride in ownership and be more likely to show it off regularly. Even if your customers only wear their free personalised hoodie or t-shirts to the gym or to the shops it still means a lot of additional exposure for your event. Wearing a piece of marketing is a big show of advocacy, in essence you create walking ambassadors just by providing the outfit on which to display your message.
Professionally produced branded items create a positive impression of the event represented. Just keep in mind that poor quality or badly thought out items have the exact opposite effect.
Sense of Community
Similarly to spotting someone in the street or in a coffee shop with the t-shirt of a band you like, offering customers an event branded item to where after the day itself has passed creates a sense of community and rapport. Nurturing this relationship can mean ongoing advocacy and creates a feeling of being part of something bigger. Participants are likely to tell more people and return more often – helping to create an even more successful event next time.

This Friday is official Christmas Jumper Day which was created to raise money for Save the Children UK and “Make the World Better with a Christmas Sweater”[i].
Offices across the country are joining in the fun and here at Logos4Clothes we have been researching the very best Christmas jumpers around. Do you think that we’ve found the best ones?
10. At number 10 we have a relatively tasteful men’s jumper, suitable for those who like to get into the festive spirit but without looking like too much of an idiot. This jumper has successfully combined festive patterns with reindeer but in an attractive way.
9. Closely following the above is this Santa & Rudolph jumper from Karma Clothing. Again, relatively dignified for a festive jumper, this is quite a nice compromise if you have a Christmas Jumper day at work but don’t want to go too over the top. However, it is not outgoing and garish enough to move beyond position number 9.
8. Truly traditional Christmas jumpers feature some kind of geometric headache-inducing pattern which epitomises bad taste such as this Polar Bear-covered one . While the pattern is vile, the colours are not quite gaudy enough to be truly offensive.
7. As we move into position 7 however we most definitely have entered the world of offensive to the eye, repugnant, and heinous. Monstrous
jumpers such as these always appear in December – but to be fair Christmas would not be the same without them.
6. Which is worse taste between 6 and 7 might be debatable but this jumper looks like a festive jockey top, it’s such bad taste that you can’t help but wish you owned one!
5. As we move into the top 5 the competition steps up a peg or two and is now pretty fierce. This elf jumper is a little bit of fun to brighten up a dull day at the office on Christmas Jumper Day!
4. If you’re going to wear a Christmas jumper, why not get well and truly stuck in by going as an actual Christmas pudding? Whoever goes out in the legendary jumper has a big *thumbs up* from us!
3. An attractive collection of colours and a really Christmassy setting, this jumper looks very tasteful compared to some others on our list. Look closely however and you will see that Santa’s in a spot of bother! –That’s why it’s in our top 3.
2. Just missing out on the top spot is this Santa jumper. We’ve already had a jumper that makes one look like an elf, but who would be an elf when they can be the big man?
1. And at Number One we have this glorious fireplace jumper. Not only is it a combination of the ultimate Christmas colours and the romantic fireplace scene but the fire itself also LIGHTS UP AND MOVES! The ultimate Christmas jumper.
With only a month left until Christmas Day, it is the busiest time of the year for most businesses; everybody is rushing to purchase gifts for their family and friends while there is still time.
While it might be the most exciting time of year, it can also be the most expensive time of the year as well which can lead individuals and businesses to worry about their finances and how they will pay for everything they need.
Here at Logos 4 Clothes however, we have got into the generous, festive spirit early which is why we are providing lots of exciting offers up until 30th November. Take a look at our brilliant discounts:
10% DISCOUNT until 30th November on:
Particularly over the winter months when the temperatures have dropped, the air is icy, and you want to wrap up in layers, hoodies become a staple piece of clothing for pretty much everybody. Even on the trip to and from work, popping a hoody over your suit is an easy way to keep warm and comfortable.
Take advantage of the 10% discount while you can by embroidering your logo onto clothing that your audience will find truly useful (as well as stylish) this winter.
Likewise, fleeces are another popular choice of attire during the winter. At Logos4Clothes we provide many different styles of fleece, all of which can be purchased in the colour that you want – whether that is simply your favourite colour generally or one that matches your brand. These might be a more practical alternative to hoodies, especially if you (or your target audience) enjoy winter walks.
While fleeces and hoodies might seem more appropriate at this time of year, other types of clothing such as polo shirts are necessary as the weather gets warmer. Purchase discounted polo shirts now in preparation for the summer months.

Personalised Hoodies come in various forms, you can have printed hoodies, embroidered hoodies, and in some case you can have both print and embroidery.
One of the most commons ways is to have an Embroidered logo or motif on the front, generally with a College, University or club badge, and then an individual name printed on the back to finish your Personalised Hoodies.
Here are some recent examples, and you can find lots of ideas here to select your Personalised Hoodies, you decide whether you have printed hoodies or embroidered hoodies.
