Top 5 Categories in Promotional Products for Sports

When we think of sports, we think of everything from teams to schools, gear and winning! At the Gear Group we have staff members that are collegiate and national team sports fans, athletes, as well as, parents with children in youth sports, ranging from hockey to football and gymnastics. We LOVE sports! And have been fortunate enough to help teams, organizations and athletic associations with a wide range of sports apparel and promotional products for their games and events. We’ve done everything from shirts for t-ball teams, prizes and giveaways for mud runs, gear and medals for athletic conferences and much more.

Boonie HatWe know sports gear and are dedicated to helping our fans get the best products for their needs. When we jumped into the sports industry, we knew we had a choice to either be an order-taker, as many companies do, and offer “canned” ideas for sports related items – there are a ton. Or, we could build our expertise and further the goals of our customers by offering creative ideas and custom gear that get people excited. We chose to be creative experts who offer solutions.
