According to the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI), consumer recall is the highest for logoed apparel as 85% of consumers remember the advertiser logoed on t-shirts and hats. Outerwear such as sweatshirts and fleece jackets are popular items in the Grand Rapids area and have a consumer ownership average of 16 months. Did you know a single item of promotional clothing owned for 16 months can garner 6,000 views? Considering that about 15% of consumers own logoed outerwear in Michigan, that’s a lot of impressions!
American businesses spend more than a third of their promotional products budgets on apparel – and it’s no different in Kent County because we’ve seen it again and again, Michigan residents love getting free items they can wear and this helps the business generate more impressions every time. Have you seen crowds go crazy when Detroit Lions or Pistons t-shirts are balled up and thrown into the crowd at games? All that just because they’re getting a free t-shirt. And the team just garnered a free walking billboard everywhere that fan wears the t-shirt. Consider how your business, regardless of size or industry, could benefit from having its logo walking around Grand Rapids on a t-shirt you gave away during a promotional event.
