Companies across the nation are continuing to embrace LGBTQIA+ communities and employees. After all, employees want to feel they can be authentically themselves in the workplace and be accepted at work. What better way to have your company show support for the Pride community than by designing and offering branded swag! Of course, your allyship shouldn’t start and end with swag. Supporting, embracing, and caring for your LGBTQIA+ community swag requires a nuanced and holistic approach. However, offering swag is a helpful way to make people feel welcomed and feel comfortable being themselves at work. It also brings teams together to support Pride month!
Our very own Swagstronauts have put together a shortlist of favorite pride swag items we love to make for our clients.
☝Tip: Pride swag can present some challenges due to the number of colors needed. Like other branded swag, Pride branded swag items have imprint charges that are usually calculated by the number of colors in the design. So, keep in mind that more colors may equal a more expensive custom item.
With this in mind, our team has curated this list of Pride branded swag items to keep you within budget, with high-quality selections that are sure to be a total success with your teams!
