Editor's Picks: Hats Off to (Roy) Harper
If The Beach Boys are the musical equivalent of summer, then it's obvious what Led Zeppelin is analgous to: hats.
Not buying it? Yeah, me neither. I was just looking for an excuse to link some Page and Plant, and also to segue into this week's Editor's Picks selection of promotional hats. Everyone knows the promotional benefits of baseball caps, but there's a whole other world of headwear to consider. From rock 'n' roll-approriate bandanas to some other, less traditional pieces, there's a world of premium and imprintable headwear out there. Here are just a few of the choices you'll find on the free product search engine on PromoMarketing.com.
A Standout Among Blend-Ins
The bandana has been the signature headwear of the rocker (Ozzymandius headbangerus) since the species' discovery in the 1960s. As part of its continual evolution and adaptation to the environment, it has taken on various forms of camouflage for survival, like this Outdoor Cap Camo Bandana from Sportsman Cap Network. The cotton and polyester piece features a mossy oak print, allowing the rocker to blend in while hunting its prey, the elusive square (Dorkus malorkus).
Too Metal For One Hat
When heavy metal gets too heavy, a bandana won't cut it. At such times, like when the double-guitar solo comes out, the serious protection offered from WOWline's Imprinted Construction Hard Hat is the only solution. The bright yellow plastic hat is sized for adults and features a 2x1.25" imprint on the front. Oh, and it's good for construction-theme promotions too.
Please Bear With The Puns
There's a lot that could be said about Bear Head from Foamworx, but it can be summed up in one word: "awesome." If you were going to use a second word, it should be "awesome" again. The open-cell foam helm is available in 13 colors and can have a 5" diameter imprint. Do you know what could go in that imprint? Here's a hint: it's the word "awesome."
