Hatswork Round-Up: June 23, 2016

June 23, 2016 - By Emily Potter

This week we’re discussing the winning promotional products strategy of HBO’s hottest series, looking back at some highlights from Promotional Products Work! Week, and touching on some decoration techniques we haven’t covered before.


How Game of Thrones Uses Promotional Products

With only one episode left in Season 6 of Game of Thrones, how could I not select this article from HALO Branded Solutions? The title says June 23rd, but make no mistake, Winter is Coming. This week’s episode was a doozy (spoiler alert) Ramsay Bolton was eaten by his own hounds, courtesy of Sansa’s well-deserved vengeance, and Winterfell is once again under the rule of our beloved House Stark.

The book and television series is a winner when it comes to their branded products. They have everything from standard apparel and mugs to costumes and replica goblets. You can buy a cap with the stark dire wolf and at the same time purchase a duplicate of Renly Baratheon’s crown. We can all learn from the franchise’s use of creativity when considering new promotional products of our own.


The Industry Celebrates Promotional Products Work! Week

A few weeks ago, we shared with you about Promotional Products Work! Week (PPW!W) and urged you to get involved. Outdoor Cap even hosted a contest we reported on. This article, written by PPAI, delves into how some organizations across the country celebrated the week. PPW!W was held May 23rd – 27th.


Cap Decorating Methods

Printwear discusses several headwear decoration methods we’ve mentioned in our All About Headwear series. Some techniques are ones we’ve covered, like sublimation and embroidery. Others that we haven’t gotten around to include: patches, screen-printing, rhinestones, and vinyl.
