We are working to come up with an 'Accessories Section' to promote our tee shirt line and overall brand. The most obvious is stickers and we are working to have some made (i had an earlier thread on this - logo stickers).

We were also thinking of possibly having some Pint size beer glasses made with our logo on them. Just wondering if you all think 'accessorizing' the brand is a good idea and if so what are some other suggestions you might have for things we could have made?

Thanks for the help!

If branding is your goal, I then accessorizing is a great idea.

I think the products that you use to accessorize is market dependent, though.
Nick(neato) at RocketRanger (selling baby clothes) isn't going to have beer mugs for sale! But some fridge magnets or notepads might be great.

It all depends on your market, and what else you could tie your products to.

That is a good point, one thing I thought of since we are working to attract the Outdoor Industry, maybe some caribiners with our web address on them of water bottles with our logo?

Why mini beer glasses? They sound cute, but realistically, what does beer have to do with your brand?

Your website says your vision is "To inspire outdoor enthusiasts.." so why don't you go for an outdoors theme, and have items that people would use while enjoying those outdoor activities that are featured on your shirts.

Also, what are you going to do with the items? Do you want to sell them as part of your line, or give them away with orders as a promotional thing?

I would think if you were going to be selling them as part of your line, higher-end items such as polycarbonate water bottles, backpacks, etc. would be really good.

If you're giving them as freebies, stickers would be good, or maybe frisbees, or caribiner clips.

If you google "promotional" you are going to come up with a ton of places to buy these. Since your clothing line is organic I will also mention one company I heard of recently, http://www.fairware.ca/, which sells ethically sourced promotional products.

Anyway that's my 2 cents.. Let us know what you end up doing :)

Speaking of license plate frames: I love that idea especially if you have a cute tag line or cute tee shirt sayings.

Does anyone have suggestion s for where to get top quality license plate frames that have room for words? I'm thinking stainless steel would be the best.

Every time I've done an engine search, I get deluded with frames that don't have enough room for words or have car logos on them etc. etc.

Can anyone make a suggestion?

I think conde sells some (although they don't picture the "frames" on the site, you might be able to contact them for more info on them):

Buttons are cool and some people collect them. Younger people seem to be into them boys and gurls and they don't cost much to make.

I think it mainly depends on your target market.

If you market to children give away books to there parents.

If you market to pet owners give away pet food samples.

I think you need to relate how your customers will wear your products and what kind of things do they like.....have a look on Cafepress for examples. Although, I'm not really sure about just putting a logo on an item. I'm heavily into accessories myself. I agree with lawaughn on this topic though. Focus on your target market and build your accessories around them.....putting a logo on a hat just makes it a promotional tool rather then an actual product for sale. Those are my thoughts, but accessories are worth it.
