Summer is officially in full swing! It’s hot outside. People are heading out on summer vacations, many for the first time in a long time. We’re all out here trying to embrace the sunny weather while beating the heat, enjoying longer days and warm sunsets.
But the things we do aren’t the only things that change a lot with the seasons. Summer also means swapping out warmer, more muted pieces for bright, sunny ones. It affects the things we wear, purchase, and use.
And as a business owner, you can totally capitalize on that! It’s a great time to introduce a new seasonal collection to your shop and help your customers fully embrace summertime, all while providing products that fill your customers’ needs and help them express their unique sense of style.
Rather than going full DIY, creating custom products online is a great way to personalize products without having to do all of the leg work of actually producing them. With platforms like The/Studio, you can choose from a wide variety of product types, materials, designs, colors, and so much more to make something that’s totally unique and perfect from summer. You can upload your very own artwork to have printed on your products or have our in-house team of designers create something beautiful for you. Then, all you have to do is sit back and wait for your gorgeous custom products to arrive at your doorstep so you can sell them, distribute them to your team, use them at your next family reunion, or whatever your big plans are!
Of course, coming up with the right summery concept and design is easier said than done. After all, you want to be original, but also relevant and on-trend!
Over the years, we’ve helped so many businesses create custom products for the summer season, from custom pins to custom patches to custom hats and beyond. Here are 20 of our favorites – let them inspire you and get your creative juices flowing before you head on over to our DIY product creation tool!
