Hatswork Round-Up: December 20, 2018

In today's Round-Up, we're looking at a movement led by educators 1 across the U.S. We'll also talk about how one piece of the NBA's 2 promotional apparel became all fans could talk about at the 2018 finals. Finally, another food brand 3 dropped a line of funny merch 4.


Promotional Products and the #RedforEd Movement 5

Earlier this year, teachers in the public-school system 6 started a movement known as the #RedforEd campaign, which advocates for things like fair pay and adequate state funding. Teachers 7 and supporters from all over the country wore red in solidarity and many marched in protest.

This sparked another micro-moment 8, which distributors jumped all over providing red shirts, hats, buttons, signs, etc. How else can educators 9 benefit from promotional apparel? Think outside the box; it's not just booster clubs 10 and band camp 11.

Moral of the story? Always, have another set of eyes look at your promotional apparel designs before they go into production.
