Introducing HYOU, a Brand New Full Color Apparel Line by SnugZ USA

HYOU Full Color Apparel

It does exist: something to make people look up from their phones. And maybe (gasp), Instagram it. It comes in the form of HYOU wearable promo products. Our full-color dye sublimated hoodies, tees, and backpacks are truly next-gen swag. You can start with a minimum order of one, but we have a feeling you’ll want way more than that.

We’re not saying HYOU gear will get you more street cred, but we’re not not saying it either. Collab with our design team for a totally branded aesthetic. Every item is made with quality construction that looks and feels primo—and vibrant colors that stay legit for years. 100% customizable. 100% fresh. 100% Uniquely HYOU.

Azure Import Men’s Dye-Sublimated Short Sleeve T-Shirt

When a grown man clotheslines a kindergartner for t-shirt cannon swag, it better be for good reason. We’re not saying any tee justifies that…but these kinda do. Absurdly soft. Impeccably made. Customize the entire design with our creative team. Distribute for any occasion.

Hazel Import Women’s Dye-Sublimated Short Sleeve T-Shirt

Women don’t want a one-size-fits-all t-shirt that looks like a mumu and itches like a granny sweater. They want this one. With a feminine cut, super soft material, and fully customizable design, it’s a real lady magnet. Which means, it’s a business magnet too.

Indigo Import Unisex Dye-Sublimated Pullover Hoodie

Is your promo gear #woke or a joke? Our pullover is clearly the former. This fully-customizable, hoodie will be a wardrobe staple for anyone lucky enough to score it. A walking advertisement that looks and feels dope.

Jade Import Dye-Sublimated Backpack

No one wants to roll up to college, the gym, or a flight with a monogrammed Jansport. LO-SER. They want this sweet pack to redeem their nerdier elementary years. Comfy, stylish, and functional to boot. Customize it completely with our design team.

Rusty Import Unisex Dye-Sublimated Raglan Sleeve Full-Zip Hoodie

Public-cazh: socially acceptable and in demand. Time to get on-trend. Our full-zip hoodie looks fresh, feels like it’s made of kittens (meow), and screams high-class taste. Customize everything with our in-house design team.

Topaz Import Dye-Sublimated Technical Backpack

First came the drawstring backpack. Then came our Tech Backpack. It’s kind of like jumping from amoeba to homo sapien, but you get the picture. Sturdy zipper and design. Ergonomic shoulder straps. Laptop pouch to boot. Ideal for carry-ons, the office—you name it. Oh, and businesses who want to treat-yo-customers.

9 Ways to Give Mom the Peace and Serenity She Deserves this Mother’s Day

Mom. Mere. Mutter. Makuahine. Mathair. Madre. Okaasan. Mater. Mama. Me. Mam. Moeder. Ahm. Mae. Mor. Ema. Ina. Aiti. Mana. Ma.

Around the globe there are hundreds, if not thousands, of ways to say Mom. Think, deep down, what comes to mind when you hear that simple three letter word? Love? Affection? Appreciation? Devotion? Fondness? Friendship? Respect? Tenderness? Care? Birth? Life? Sacrifice? Fun? The list of emotions we feel and the memories we have of our mothers is practically infinite.

No matter which culture you embody, we can all agree on one thing: Moms everywhere are the all-knowing, multi-tasking, no-days-off heroes that deserve to be celebrated and recognized, and not just because it’s Mother’s Day. It’s the one relationship in this life which effortlessly raises the bar above all other relationships on this planet, and these women deserve the best 365 days a year for their commitments as Mom.

Whether she’s pursuing a career, wrangling kids, running the household, or perhaps all of those things, give Mom the peace and serenity she deserves this Mother’s Day (and every day).

Here’s a few custom gift ideas to show Mom all of your love:

Does Mom really need a reason to loosen up and unwind? Zen essential oil infused bath salts are as good excuse as any. All she needs to do is dissolve in water and drench herself in rich essential oils and sea salts for the ultimate in pampering and relaxation.

Willow 16 oz. Wide Mouth Mason Jar with Recycled Felt Sleeve

Every once and a while it’s not only okay, but encouraged, to stop and smell the roses. For Moms this occasion should surely be more than one day a year. Picture your mother sipping her favorite tea, coffee or really any beverage she wishes to delight in out of this trendy Mason jar with a fashionable felt sleeve with an elegant leather handle. Did we mention our felt is sustainably made and produced from recycled plastic bottles?

Just Out of Curiosity, What Do You Really Know About Reef-Safe Sunscreen?

Last May Hawaii’s state legislature passed a bill that prevents the sale of chemical sunscreens that not only cause harm to your body, but have been linked to coral bleaching. Senate Bill 2571 prohibits the sale and distribution of any sunscreen that contains common UV-filtering ingredients, such as oxybenzone or octinoxate beginning January 1, 2021. According to the Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology “chemicals in sunscreen kill coral and result in DNA damage in larval and adult stage coral. The impact on DNA limits coral’s ability to grow and develop healthily.”

Awareness is growing that sunscreen is a large contributing factor when it comes to one-fifth of the world’s coral reefs dying off over the past three years. It is estimated that anywhere from 6,000 to 14,000 tons of sunscreen, or the equivalent of 25 to 60 million bottles (yes, you read that right), wash off of swimmers and deposit into coral reef areas each year.

Reefs are not only dying at the hands of chemical sunscreen, but global climate change plays a main role as well due to rising ocean temperatures that cause coral to bleach. Why is this such a big deal?

  • Millions of tourists are drawn to the colorful reefs every year (highly vulnerable to sunscreen-induced coral bleaching)
  • According to the Smithsonian 25% of ocean life depend on reefs for food and shelter

So, in essence, we as humans need to take care of these spectacular ecosystems.

What can we do to help in the promotional products industry?

In order to save coral reefs there’s a lot of work to be done, but our choice as businesses and individuals in the Promotional Products Industry to promote reef-safe sunscreen can help reduce our impact on the environment! There are plenty of reef-safe options on the market for your consumers to choose from and that’s a great start.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN ORDERING REEF-SAFE PROMOTIONAL SUNSCREEN

SPF 30 lotion, SPF 30 lip balm and our mineral based zinc are all reef-safe sunscreen options from SnugZ USA.

  1. Avoid the ingredients Oxybenzone and Octinoxate
  2. Try out a mineral based sunscreen with the ingredients Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide
  3. Ingredients must be “non-nano”, meaning the ingredients particles must be able 100 nanometers in size so they can’t be absorbed into coral
  4. Indicated on the label that the product is indeed Reef-Safe – Do your homework and check the ingredients to be sure

Hand Sanitizer: An Effective Way to Promote Your Brand This Winter

As fall turns into winter we all know deep down, even though some of us have a hard time admitting it, that the inevitable and dreaded cold and flu season is soon to follow. Not to scare you, but some might say it’s already here (Pssst…they’re right). Just like a bear goes into hibernation in late November you can count on the Bad Nasties to re-surface from their abhorrent abyss where they’ve been lurking and scheming as to how they’re going to get you sick.

Bad & Nasty

People need to be saved from that unpleasant sick-day-ending to the story. Why? Well, because SICK DAYS SUCK. I bet right now if you were to pause and really pay attention, whether you’re at work, school or taking a stroll to your favorite coffee shop, you’ll hear those all too familiar sniffles, sneezes and coughs.

During these cold months custom branded hand sanitizer is a great opportunity to not only gain exposure for your company, but to lend a clean hand (pun intended) and help prevent people from getting sick. Here’s why hand sanitizer is an effective way to promote your brand this winter:

1 – Sanitizer is a need, not a want. When is comes to health there is no compromise. People will do anything to avoid coming down with the flu. Can you blame them?

 

2 – Put your brand in their hands (literally). Right this moment someone is reaching into their purse, opening their glove box, heading for the medicine cabinet…you get the picture. Your name and logo will be seen and touched tens if not hundreds of times a day per person. The numbers really begin to add up.

 

3 – At home, in the car and don’t forget the office. That brings us to our next point, hand sanitizer is a budget friendly item. Meaning, give your customer 2 or 3 to keep you top of mind wherever they have a need for sanitizer.

 

4 – Going, going, gone. Each and every drop of that hand sanitizer will go to use this cold and flu season. Your marketing dollars will go further with custom branded sanitizer.

 

5 – They’ll thank you. At the end of the day it’s about developing and nurturing that relationship with your customer. In the end they’ll remember how you gave them a cool item that showed care for their well-being.

 

Hop on over to SnugZUSA.com and check out how we can help you customize the perfect branded sanitizer. Several bottle and fill options available!

Character Traits: Variations in Natural Leather

NO TWO HIDES ARE ALIKE

With every order, the Traverse craftsman starts with the raw ingredients – a piece of leather and a brand logo.

But instead of working with detailed blueprints, the master crafts his work one stitch and cut at a time. Just enough

structure to provide a template while still leaving room for improvisation and creativity. The result is not only

the longest lasting promotion you’ve ever seen, but one which elicits a visceral response above and beyond mere function.

Traverse has emerged as more than a great promotional product – it’s an emotional charge to the senses.

 

CHARACTER TRAITS

Variations that are found in natural leather make for a truly unique promotional product. Traverse leather goods elicit a

response each time they are shared and used. It’s a piece that will be kept and integrated into your life for years to come.

Learn more about each leather characteristic below.

[half]

 

[/half]

[half end=”true”]

WRINKLES

When an extra thick piece of leather is bent back on itself naturally, it adds character that creates dimension. It’s true what they say, a wrinkle merely indicates where a smile has been.

 

 

 

 

 

 

[/half]

[half]

SCARS

These are heralded events in the lives of our cows and bulls – a tussle with the tough mesquite bushes, a battle, a run through the barbed wire fence. Typically these will surface as long thin black lines. The appropriate response is a nod of respect for a fight well fought.

[/half]

[half end=”true”]

[half end=”true”]

STRETCH MARKS

These serve as an indication of life. Stretch marks occur with extremely fast growth or living large and in charge. Either way it means this animal was at the top of the metaphorical food chain. Share the glory and the gluttony.

 

 

 

 

 

[/half]

[half]

CALLOUSES

And you thought the raised teats on a Longhorn were just for good looks? Callouses provide a great guard that limits scrapes and cuts as the cow walks through fields of prickly cacti. Callouses are the result of these life patterns, rubbing that itchy spot with your horn or sleeping on your side. See? Habits do make a difference. They will appear as small, circular, smooth markings.

[/half]

[half end=”true”]

[half end=”true”]

INSECT BITES

These are visible signs that we’re not the only ones who battle tiny jaws, stingers and suckers. They may appear as tiny black or off-colored spots. Stand in stoic appreciation of the creature who was unable to slap a mosquito with its hoof.

 

 

 

 

 

[/half]

[half]

VEINS

One of the key marking of a well marbled leather hide are veins. Note to be confused with a blood pumping body builder caught in a Vesuvius moment. Hmmm…Vesuvius Veins. It sounds like an iconic rock band or a really nice piece of leather.

Don’t just live life, Traverse it.

With every order, the Traverse craftsman starts with the raw ingredients. A piece of leather and a brand logo. But instead of working with detailed blueprints, the master is able to craft his work one stitch and cut at a time. Just enough structure to provide a template while still leaving room for improvisation and creativity. The result is not only the longest lasting promotion you’ve ever seen but one which will elicit a visceral response above and beyond the mere function of the leather good itself. A smart brand wants its reputation to be associated with multiple fibers of a quality experience. Traverse has emerged as more than a great promotional product – it’s an emotional charge to the senses.

A few months ago, a distributor customer of ours called seeking a unique promotional item for a client that truly embodied our craftsman mantra we not only made her a beautiful leather purse and notebook which instantly became incorporated into her brand’s daily workflow, but we also made a film to tell the story.

What we found has implications for the entire promotional industry. If you think about it, every brand has a story. And for those whose story is dedication to being the innovators, the disruptors and the leaders in their category – this is what being a craftsman is all about. This is the essence of what it means to TRAVERSE life. By taking the path that leads to the unknown is risky but it’s the only way to truly break new ground. Brands who understand this inherently surround themselves with products that stand for the same thing. Traverse leather goods elicit a response each time they are shared and used. It’s a piece that will be kept and integrated into your life for years to come.

We invite you to explore our new Traverse leather line which includes journals, notebooks, wallets, accessories and more.

Don’t just live life, Traverse it.
