Our Fave 5 Promotional Products of the Week: Supporting Local Business and Empty Stadiums
This week, there have been plenty of small businesses like coffeehouses, bars and restaurants using promotional products to recoup losses from having to shut their doors. We miss some of our local haunts, so we are happy to see them turn to promotional items as ways to keep the lights on and get local support. We included a few of them in this week’s edition of the Fave 5.
1. Ortlieb’s T-shirt
One of Brendan’s favorite spots here in Philly (thanks to an abundance of tacos and good live music) is using T-shirt sales to help cover costs. This is actually their second T-shirt release since having to shut down temporarily.
2. University of Louisville Lamar Jackson Bobblehead

Reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson is no stranger to collecting prestigious honors, having won the 2016 Heisman Trophy at the University of Louisville. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is commending the now-Baltimore Raven's collegiate feats through this $40 bobblehead that's set to ship in July.

These new t-shirts by @perryshall are so cool you’ll want to wear them outside even if it’s the middle of winter. They are printed on a super soft cream colored shirt and are available at all of our cafes right now!

Folks, this is not only the best coffee in Philly, it’s possibly the best in the world. Good news for you: You can have it shipped and delivered. You don’t have to be local to support a rad local business.
4. 'I Wasn't There' Wrestlemania T-shirts
#WrestleMania 36 will be historic event in #WWE history, and you won't be there! Declare to the world that you did your part and stayed home with a new “I Wasn’t There” tee at #WWEShop. #Smackdownhttps://t.co/8a60F8I5zs pic.twitter.com/jTwRwGVy60

COVID-19 is going to leave Wrestlemania 36, slated for April 4-5, without any spectators, so the WWE Shop is peddling two tops that will give fans a branded way to mark their unprecedented absence away from their heroes.

If you can’t go to your favorite places, you can buy gift cards to use soon. We love these Yards gift cards almost as much as we love their beer. (Also, we swear we drink more than beer and coffee. We have a water once in awhile.) Nothing like clean branding.
