Since we only have to suffer through 12 more days before we elect a new Commander-in-Chief, maybe this will be the last election-themed Round-Up. Maybe. At least this week, we’re taking a lighter approach. The first two blogs are about weird and wacky political promotions found during this campaign cycle.
Last week, we touched on the popularity of camo caps in the market. This week, we’ll talk about how to properly decorate camouflage, so that your branding is highly visible as you gear up for Hunting Season.
This article focuses on political promotions created and distributed not by the candidate or their party, but by everyday supporters with enough capital to manufacture and distribute the very off-color products listed below.
- “Dump Trump” Tolilet Paper
- “Hillary’s Pantsuit” T-shirts
- Clinton & Trump Cookie Cutters
- “Dumps for Trump” Dog Waste Bad Dispensers
- “Grillary Clinton” Spatulas
- Donald & Hillary Chia Pets
- “YASSS QUEEN” Vinyl Stickers
- “Adorable Deplorable” Baby Onesies
This list includes piñatas and sneakers made in each candidates’ likeness, Trump socks with 3D hair, and the Hillary Clinton woman card, among others. The Advertising Specialty Institute also provides a short (1:22) video featuring their favorite political promotions from this race.
We all know that Blaze Orange is the perfect complement to any camouflage garment, but this article also suggests additional neon colors such as pink and yellow. Also, adding a white outline to any text or simple image will help it pop against the muted camo pattern.
When decorating on camo with heat transfers, it is important to select thick materials with dye-blocking adhesive, so the dyes from the pattern don’t bleed or migrate through the design.
