If you’re a follower of Taco Bell on Twitter, you may have seen them recently post a Tweet officially announcing their new branded Taco Bell socks. At a time when more and more businesses are printing logoed products and branded merchandise, the illustrated socks have already generated plenty of hype for the Tex-Mex fast food specialists.
With over 6,500 restaurants across the United States, Taco Bell is one of the country’s most popular fast food franchises. Every year more than 2 billion of us enjoy their tacos, burritos, nachos and plenty of other meals. However, we can now enjoy a reminder of the popular fast food chain wherever we are. The socks are expected to hit the shelves in the coming weeks, most likely from their own Live Mas clothing website, alongside the likes of t-shirts, jewelry and beach towels. We do not know when the socks will be on sale, but Taco Bell’s official Tweet stated that the product is “not a drill”, so we can expect that they are more than just a concept at this point in time.
The socks are also expected to be available on the website of Los Angeles based apparel company The Hundreds, who collaborated with Taco Bell on the project. The clothing brand has labeled themselves the world’s first “social merchandising company”, creating clothing that mirrors California’s past and present culture. As seen on Taco Bell’s official Twitter profile, the fashionable company have produced two color schemes for the socks, both of which feature illustrations of tacos, burritos and taco pizzas.
Taco Bell has a history of producing branded promotional products for their fans, and many smaller businesses are also now beginning to recognize the marketing potential of custom promotional merchandise. Whether it’s a pair of socks, a t-shirt or a basic lanyard, more and more businesses are benefiting from the frequent and long-term exposure which results from an investment into wearable promotional products.
In fact, recent research showed that over 80% of consumers will remember the company that produced our promotional products. This makes t-shirts and other wearable items an ideal option for businesses looking to improve their visibility. On top of this, we cannot forget the hundreds of daily impressions which a wearable promotional product will generate for your business. It is not often that we find ourselves looking at other peoples’ socks, as would be the case for Taco Bell, but a custom printed t-shirt or bag can do wonders for boosting your company profile. If you’re going to be giving out your logoed products for free, which sadly will not be the case for the upcoming Taco Bell socks, then research shows that you’re also more likely to win over new customers.
Here at Wearable Imaging we offer a variety of wearable custom promotional products, each of which can be branded with your company logo at an inexpensive cost. We offer you wearable logoed products like t-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts, as well as accessories like hats, caps, scarves and gloves.
