December 1, 2016 - By Emily Potter

In this Round-Up, we’ll discuss how non-profits can raise more money by spending more money on promotional products.

We’ll also have a Throwback Thursday (#TBT) to some vintage Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians baseball caps.

Finally, we’ll look at 6 tips for choosing corporate gifts this holiday season.


Increase Brand Awareness with Branded Merchandise

This article answers the question, “Is investing in promotional products worth it for non-profits?”

When you’re in the business of raising money it can be difficult to justify spending money without an anticipated ROI.

We know that #hatswork (excuse the shameless plug), but this article breaks it down so that you can rationalize spending a portion of your advertising budge up front so that you can maximize your donations later.


Retro Cubs & Indians Hats

Tomorrow marks the 1-month anniversary of the first Cubs’ World Series win in over 100 years. It’s been over 60 years since the Indians have won a title, but they’ll have to wait at least 1 more. In honor of that history making moment, here is a little #TBT to some vintage caps from the Chicago and Cleveland teams.
