What is company swag?
Company swag refers to promotional items or merchandise that a company gives away to promote its brand or products. This could include items such as t-shirts, hats, water bottles, pens, stickers, keychains, or any other type of branded item that a company might give away or sell to customers, employees, or other stakeholders.
Swag is often used as a marketing tool to build brand awareness and loyalty. Companies may give swag to customers as a reward for a purchase or as a way to thank them for their loyalty. They may also use swag as a way to attract new customers, especially at trade shows or other events where they can give away promotional items to people who stop by their booth.
Employees may also receive company swag as part of their employment package, or as a way to recognize their achievements or milestones. Swag can help build company culture and team spirit, and it can also be a fun and creative way to promote a company’s brand.
1. Remote Employee Swag Kits
Onboarding new talent in a remote work world is challenging. New remote employees can easily feel disconnected and isolated from their coworkers and the company without a physical office.

Our great selection of custom apparel, WFH accessories and custom tech give you full control to make new employees’ first experience with your company a good one.
