13 Promotional Product Trends to Watch Out for in 2013

Trends in Drinkware
If you haven’t tried infuser drinkware yet, now’s the time to start. These aren’t last year’s water bottles, that’s for sure. And whether it’s your hot coffee or iced tea, Contigo drinkware offers spill-proof security. Just looking for an iconic and beloved standard tumbler? Tervis has you covered there. Meanwhile, if you prefer your fresh water straight from the tap, revolutionary filtered drinkware is the way to go.

Trends in Housewares
For the foodie and amateur chef alike, there won’t be a more popular product this year than stylish, personalized food containers, which make each weekday lunch a gourmet treat. And since 2013 is sure to be a year for sports lovers, don’t forget all the premium custom tailgating products gear.

Trends in Apparel
Personalized clothing is always in style, but InkHead predicts that poly/cotton apparel will take off in client wardrobes. Of course, Trimark apparel also looks ready to take off this year, with fashionable and climate-comfortable tops. Expect the ruggedness of camo and the Hollywood dazzle of custom sunglasses to also skyrocket to popularity.

Trends in Tech
Mobile devices will be more prevalent than ever in 2013 – and keeping your clients connected with premium smartphone and tablet tools is a must. And don’t forget the ever-expanding popularity of custom USB drives.

Perennial Favorite: Full-Color Products
Inkhead’s pretty good at predicting promotional trends, but the only assurance for the coming year is that your product will look great and excel with imprints in bright, full color, which is eye-catching, brand-building.
