Top 10 Promotional Products for the 4th of July, State Fairs and Other Summer Events

Memorial Day marks the unofficial first day of summer. Weekends will be filled with picnics, BBQs, festivals, 5ks and parades. No matter what type of event you are organizing, show your patriotism with American made promotional products.

Buying American made products is good for the environment and the economy. Additionally, products made in the USA are safer. American made manufacturers are heavily regulated and have to abide by strict regulations to minimize pollutants and protect the environment. Recipients will also notice the Country of Origin labeling and appreciate receiving American made promotional products. Buying American made products reduce your carbon footprint by not having to pay for the fuel and energy needed to ship products from overseas.

American made t-shirts are popular eco-friendly promotional products for group picnics, parade participants, festival workers and race day swag. T-shirts can be fully customized with a group’s name and patriotic message.
