4 Of The Most Creative Promotional Products Ever Made

promotional t shirtsAbout 95% of Americans wear t-shirts, and a large percentage of those are from promotions. Screen printing promotional t-shirts may be a great way to market your business to the masses, but some companies like to take their marketing to the next level.

Around the world, different companies have come up with increasingly creative ways to market their brands, but these five really take the cake. Here are some of the most creative and crazy promotional products ever made.

Yoga Straw
More than a few companies have geared their promotional products towards people’s stomachs, but this one is especially creative. The Y+ Yoga Center in Shanghai, China, imprinted a person on the bendy part of a straw to make them look like they were performing a different pose every time the straw was moved. Talk about extreme flexibility.

Colgate Does Ice Cream
Yet another marketing ploy aimed at the stomach. Colgate Palmolive in Thailand gave out ice cream bars and cotton candy during Oral Health Month and at other events throughout the year, but when you finished your ice cream, the treats’ sticks were shaped like a toothbrush and contained a reminder to brush your teeth after that sweet snack.

Brussels Gets Literal
In an effort to make airline passengers more aware of the dangers of pickpockets, Brussels Airlines got literal. In this campaign, they slipped rubber hands into passenger’s unattended bags at the airport with the message, “This hand just slipped into your back. Beware of Pickpockets.” What a literal take on advertising.

Fake Cockroaches
If you don’t like bugs, this marketing ploy isn’t for you. In an attempt to alert people to the possibility of cockroach infestations, D.D. Drin Insect Elimination took fake cockroaches and slipped them under people’s doors at their homes. A message on the fake bug’s belly read “See how easy it is to get into your house?”

Fortunately, most businesses don’t go to such extreme lengths. Usually, customers are thrilled with promotional tote bags — and totes can provide an avenue to include more products, such as promotional towels or t-shirts.

However, there is a lesson to be learned from these wacky marketing ploys, and that’s to make your promotional t-shirts, towels, or whatever you may create, something that stands out and showcases your business. So next time you order t-shirt printing services, make sure you’re actively thinking about how your promotional items can work for you.
