Our Team’s Favorite Custom Products for Summer 2022

As the weather starts to warm up, there’s no better time to start looking into new custom products for all of your friends and family. Whether it’s lightweight layers or sunny accessories, our team of product experts has spent the last few weeks getting to know the best products to carry you through summer in style. Here’s what they have to say about these awesome seasonal items.

A custom hat featuring a design that says "your design here"

Get ready for a blast from the past. Not only are bucket hats making a comeback, some popular brands are also showing that they never went away. “The brand ‘The Game’ was a really cool brand back in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, and it still is,” Jason G. says. He also loves that The Game Ultralight Booney Hat comes in a number of different color combinations so you can make it match everything your group does, and its functionality makes it easy to take wherever you go. Arlie Y adds that, “it’s easy to throw in your bag and the adjustable toggle drawcord means it won’t blow off if you are on a boat.”

A custom notebook featuring a design that says "your design here."

Never lose track of your important meeting minutes again! Our team absolutely loves this flip notebook with a surprising twist. Ann C says, “Technology is advancing how we can take notes in the traditional manner by hand, yet store them electronically with the ease of an app. The RocketBook Executive Flip Notebook Set is perfect for note taking, making lists, and brainstorming. The technology allows you to upload your ideas to the cloud for easy organization, then wipe clean and reuse for the next meeting or team collaboration!” How cool is that?

A custom silicone pint glass with a design on it that says "Your design here"

Meet the most versatile glass you’ve ever laid eyes on. The Silipint 16 oz. Straight Up Silicone Pint Glass is made of silicone which makes it flexible enough to put in your pocket, but also sturdy enough to use as a cup. The silicone material also means that this cup insulates both hot and cold beverages, while resisting damage from high temperatures, like sitting next to a hot grill. It’s the perfect cup for cookouts, camping, and sporting events and Jason G. adds that “the fact that you don’t have to worry about them breaking is a great thing if you use them around the pool!” 

A custom tote bag featuring a design that says "your design here."

When it comes to tote bags, you CAN take it with you. Boat totes embody the spirit of warmer weather and outdoor activities, and the Embroidered Medium Premium Cotton Canvas Boat Tote Bag is no exception. This bag offers the option to upgrade your design to embroidery while staying moderately priced, which gives the bag an even more professional look. Ann C. also adds that, “this style features a rainbow strap as one of the color options which is a hot trend not only for Pride Month and The Home Edit but because of the overall feel-good factor that everyone associates with rainbows.”

A custom towel featuring a design that says "your design here."

Forget the beach body, we all know its really all about having the right beach towel. “Full Color Midweight Beach Towel allows the customer to truly be creative and use the entire towel to showcase their logo or message,“ Ann C. says. Not only is this towel a great way to display your design loud and proud, it’s also made out of a soft mix of cotton and polyester that feels great to touch while still ensuring vibrant colors through an advanced sublimation printing technique. On top of all this, Staci J. calls out another perk of this custom towel. “What I love about this towel is how lightweight and transportable it is. At first impression, I thought it was ‘too thin’ to serve as a good beach towel but man, was I wrong. After using the towel, I began to appreciate the modern, lightweight material for its versatility and compactibility.”

A custom blanket with a leather carrying case that features a debossed design that says "your design here."

Get reacquainted with the great outdoors in comfort. The last few years have seen a rise in popularity for the picnic blanket, and this blanket rises above them all. Not only does the Field & Co. Debossed Campster Picnic Blanket offers superior softness with its polyester fleece construction, it also allows you to showcase your design or logo in superior style with one of our high-end decoration methods: debossing, which presses your design directly into the leather carrying case. Ann C. tells us that not only is this a great blanket for all of your outdoor activities, it’s also a great example of the “quality and features of a ‘better’ blanket.”

      I’m looking for workout type tank tops. It’s called string tank tops. It’s what the bodybuilder heavy lifters wear. Do you have those available or just a regular tank tops?
