Trending: Tie-Dye

Are you feeling the 70's nostalgia? Tie-dye is making a comeback, and it's here for summer merch! You may immediately think about shades of neon when you think about tie-dye, but this pattern has been reinvented to include pastels and neutrals. As a print that can be as subtle as you'd like it, tie-dye is a great way to incorporate some pattern into your corporate wardrobe!


Trending: Copper Tones

Gold and silver have had their moments, and now it's copper's time to shine! This metallic is a trending option for drinkware, housewares and accessories alike. There are multiple shades of copper to choose from, ranging from deep orange-ish shades to lighter bronze options. Copper tones are a great way to spruce up your every day essentials and turn them into something modern.


Trending: Light Oak Accents

Elements of nature are becoming more and more prevalent in custom merch. As wood accents have always been a favorite element to housewares and drinkware, shades of lighter oak are fresh, warm and inviting. Light oak is a timeless pattern and a great option for modernizing your merch.


Trending: Pet Accessories

You love your furry friends, and we do too! Custom pet accessories have become a household staple, as the number of pet owners has drastically increased due to the quarantine time period. Choose from custom collars, leashes and even bowls. Show your employees' pets some love by gifting custom pet accessories as your next employee gifts!


Trending: Drinkware Meets Technology

Drinkware has officially been taken to the next level with new brands Ember and LARQ. Combining tech elements with classic styles has allowed these brands to change the game of custom drinkware. Ember allows one to keep their beverage at their ideal temperature through an app on their phone, while LARQ includes a self-cleaning ability through a UV light.
