Hatswork Round-Up: September 29, 2016

September 29, 2016 - By Emily Potter

Today, we’re looking into promotional clothing that combats the Zika threat. We’ll also talk about selling promotions to tire and auto shops, and look at some upcoming holidays in October.


Zika Threat Leads to Demand in Repellent Promotional Clothing

Following the Zika epidemic, several promotional product companies and apparel manufacturers are heeding the need for clothing that repels mosquitos. The most common pieces include shirts, pants, hoodies, and socks.

If the virus continues to spread throughout the U.S., other items such as hats, facemasks, neck tubes, scarves, and gloves may be necessary.


The Value of Promotional Clothing for Your Tire Business

Here at Hatswork, we’re always bringing you tips to sell caps into different industries. This article is all about promotional products for tire and auto shops. The article suggests companies should spend a bit more to select a useful, high-quality promotional product over something like a keychain or pen.

Millar’s Point S Tire & Auto Service cites promotional clothing such as hats and t-shirts among the most popular products with its customers.
