A polarizing topic, Back to School season is about to make its grand appearance. Soon, floods of contrasting groups - some showing their support while others brood in disdain - will be seen rushing to nearby stores to begin their preparations. Teachers, parents and students alike will put their differences to the side and work together towards a common goal: stock up on pens, pencils, notebooks, backpacks uniforms and other supplies that will be essential to the new school year.
The truth is we’re all sorry to see our summer vacation come to an end. However, a brand-new school year brings with it a swamp of opportunities, strategies and resources that promise to elevate us closer to a better future. Follow us inside our Back to School Catalog and learn how branded promotional items can help your business or organization this season.
As the Sun reaches its highest position in the northern hemisphere, we can feel the energy rising as people get ready to welcome the summer solstice. That means crowds will be flocking to the sea or the nearest lake, visit local attractions with their young ones, and just plain enjoy the joy and warmth of the season. Summertime can be slow for certain businesses, however, there’s no reason to stop engaging your audience. Dive into our downloadable 2019 summer catalog for seasonal promotional items that will help you stay connected with the relationships you’ve built so far, as well as create the opportunity for some new ones.
While the summer months are traditionally a time when families get to celebrate, rest and spend more time together, this doesn’t always translate as an abundant time for businesses. Unless you’re a fairly new business owner and aren’t exactly sure what to expect this season, I’m certain you’ve been preparing for the unpredictability associated with this time a year. However, I want to tell you there is a lot more you can do to boost your revenue in the wake of the summer solstice. Follow me inside for the top 7 promotional items you can use this period to create more awareness about your brand.
Browsing the web in search for the latest trends in promotional items may sometimes feel a little soul crushing. Can you ever be sure you’re getting the right item for your brand? Will your custom giveaways communicate an accurate translation of your message? The uncertainty can make the shopping experience somewhat daunting, but at DiscountMugs we strive to make the process easier. Follow us inside our most current catalog to shop the latest deals, new arrivals and explore market tendencies that can help strengthen your marketing efforts this season.
In the last ten years or so, swag bags have evolved from the occasional freebie sack to essential event goody items corporate groups and organizations across industries can’t live without. Business owners and marketers around the country find themselves on the constant lookout for new and unique ideas to complement their promotional approach and help grow, nurture or engage their audiences.
The act of giving and receiving is gratifying, but the process of buying gifts for others does come difficult to some. Group gatherings like a bachelorette party or a corporate outing with employees to help build team dynamics can add to the pressure.
No matter the occasion, a gift is an opportunity to show those close to us we appreciate their company and the joy they add to our lives. When gifting in large volumes you’ll need to take several variables into consideration, and these won’t always match up against one another. However, good news is at DiscountMugs we have a knack for life events such as these.
Although there’s still snow pilling on some parts of the country, Spring will officially arrive in a little less than three weeks from today. As with all things, there’s a season for new beginnings, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to leave the winter blues behind to start thinking about spring promotion approaches and ideas.
Winter is perhaps the most severe of the seasons (however, depending on where you are, some will argue summer often competes for first place). Nevertheless, there’s something romantic and peaceful about a snowfall, a quiet crystal night and frosty windows, that continues to capture the imagination of humans and influence their behavior.
While it is true that the way we react to our surroundings is in fact determined by our experiences, you can still make the most of the frosty season no matter how icy the plunging temperatures get this year.
The winds of winter are here. Long gone are short sleeves and tank tops, and everywhere we go we see layers and sweaters keeping our peers warm during the day. With the season, we can look towards a cozier time indoors but also the opportunity to enjoy outdoor sports games like football and soccer with a more dramatic effect.
According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), 46% of Americans were projected to watch the Big Game at home or a friend’s house in 2018. Although it may be early to call in for numbers this year, everyone knows the game of games is bound to bring in large crowds and you deserve a slice out of that pie. A comfortable sofa can and will be your prime competitor on football’s biggest game night, but our football inspired promo ideas can get them to ditch the couch. Get everyone excited with our promos and event ideas and bring the atmosphere of America’s super Sunday to your event.
If you find yourself reading now, it means you’re thinking ahead and looking into ways to make 2019 a year of success for your business or cause.

Promotional products are an investment and you’ll need to tap into all the different venues in which they can be used to reach their full potential.

Our clients and employees should most definitely make it to the list, and with that in mind we present DiscountMugs’ 2018 Top 10 Promotional Products: The Holiday Gift Guide Edition.
