As the summer months appear on the horizon, all thoughts turn to fun in the sun—and ways to beat the heat! When it comes to summer swag, customers and employees will clamor for what’s cool. And as summer rolls on, summer promotional items will be hot, hot, hot!

The hottest days come in July for most parts of the country. As the dog days of summer approach, promotional fans, water bottle giveaways and other cooling gifts are sure to see a lot of use.


Towels to keep them refreshed

Cooling towels wick away sweat while staying dry to the touch, but the true magic happens when they are rinsed in water. Specialized air pocket construction helps keep the towel feeling cool, providing immediate relief on hot days.

The Rainier Cooling Towel offers this incredible technology in various cool colors to make your brand pop while keeping your customers and employees comfortable.
