2020 Wrap-Up: Our Most-Shared Promotional Products Stories of the Year
One of the best things about digital publishing is how easy it is to share stories. Word travels instantly, and you don’t need to send newspaper clippings or magazine articles in the mail to show your friend something interesting.
Social media and journalism go hand-in-hand these days, too, as it’s a primary means of getting the word out to people who don’t subscribe. We’re grateful for all of the shares we’ve gotten this year, so we wanted to round up our most-shared stories. (Click the article titles to read each story.)
