…the campaign trail, that is.
As a wide Republican field continues to be whittled down to a select few, incumbent President Barak Obama has already started building his campaign for the 2012 election—even though it’s still roughly eighteen months away. While his campaign store is full of the usual suspects such as custom yard signs, rally buttons, and campaign bumper stickers, there are a couple limited edition items that demonstrate the president’s dry sense of humor.
In response to the long-running controversy over his long-form birth certificate, President Obama has stocked his campaign store with a custom t-shirt and a campaign coffee mug featuring his picture and the phrase “Made in the USA” underneath on the front, and the long-form birth certificate on the back. Clever and cheeky, the shirt and coffee mug match the attitude that many people have taken toward those individuals that have continually called for the birth certificate, even when evidence confirming the president’s citizenship has already been presented.
While InkHead carries several Made in the USA promotional products, today let’s look specifically at promotional items that would be perfect for political campaigns.
Last November, we examined the Politics of Promotional Products and found which type of promotional items each political faction prefers. Specifically, we learned that “Republicans like food gifts, Democrats prefer logoed pens and independents might scoff at anything less than a brand-name shirt.” These are not the only items that will work for raising awareness of your political campaign, however. The items listed below will excite your candidate’s base and connect him or her with new voters.
This is just the beginning. If none of these items will work for your campaign, feel free to peruse InkHead’s entire catalog of nearly 20,000 items to find the one that works best for you. If you need a hand finding that perfect item, please call us at 800-554-0127 any time between 9 AM and 8 PM to speak with a Promotions Specialist, who can help you locate a suitable item for your campaign.
Although the 2012 presidential election is still several months away, President Obama has not wasted any time in setting up his campaign store, which serves to collect donations from supporters and gain notice from would-be voters. More immediate is the 2011 elections, which are only a few months away. If you are considering a political office or work for someone who is, then you should order products such as campaign car magnets, custom coffee mugs, and personalized water bottles (or any of the other products mentioned here) to reach and connect with potential supporters.
