Techdirt is an influential blog that delivers keen insights into technologys legal challenges and related business and economic policy issues.
The Techdirt team is also pretty savvy when it comes to spotting an opportunity for clever promotional products that, in their way, augment the blogs brand and help it to raise funds to support its mission.
Case-in-point: Government Attic recently filed a Freedom of Information Request that resulted in the release of posters the National Security Agency (NSA) made in the 1950s and 60s to remind employees about security. After Techdirt got feedback about the posters, they decided to reproduce the prints on T-Shirts, hooded sweatshirts and coffee mugs. The branded merchandise has been on offer in the blogsswag store on Teespring. All profits from sales of the merch support Techdirts ongoing reporting on copyright, technology and innovation.

The use of once classified information as swag is a nice match for the Techdirt brand. After all, the blog is focused on journalistic digging on delving deep to uncover the real roots of important issues at the intersection of technology, business and related economics.
Also, quite honestly, the merch is cool in a retro way that we dig. Check out a few examples below.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un are set to engage inhistoric face-to-face talksregarding possible nuclear disarmament of North Korea in Singapore. While the potential geopolitical implications are beyond our humble scope, we thought wed mention this: There are promotional products tied to the summit perhaps not a surprise given the global interest in the event.
The Straits Times, an English language broadsheet newspaper based in Singapore, had the below prefilled, single-use water bottle on offer:
At least some folks were eager to get their hands on summit swag:
Thoughts and prayers to friends and colleagues inSingapore. Oh, and please grab any summit swag you can lay your hands on.TrumpKimSummit
Others disparaged The Straits Times summit-branded merchandise:
Some slightly silly Singapore summit /MqTmYumJm6
Additionally,Los Angeles Times reportedthat, on the ground in Singapore, there were cardboard fans and coffee cups that showed depictions of Trump and Kim. BBC Asia Bureau Chief Imelda Flattery noted that the summits media center had summit-branded coffee cups:
Even the coffee cups are themed at the Singapore Summlt media centre. Theres something of the Royal Wedding about all this..
Back in May, in anticipation of an earlier round of proposed talks between Trump and Kim that were cancelled, the White House Communications Agency was selling a coin or medallion since it has no currency value. It was to commemorate the meeting:
Theres now a White House Military Office coin for the upcoming Trump Kim Jong Un summit. The North Korean dictator is referred to as Supreme Leader Kim Jong m/tFAmE813Y1
It appears there will be more coins/medallions. The White House Gift Shop was making newcommemorative coins available for pre-order as of Monday. The gift shop website said images of the first coin apparently there will be another as well for a series of three — would be released on Tuesday June 12th. Coins were expected to begin shipping Aug. 1.
Beyond the merch, theres a bit of a surreal atmosphere surrounding the summit between two of the worlds most controversial leaders. For example, people were lining up in Singapore to take pictures with Kim and Trump impersonators. Picsreportedly cost $11.
Hong Kong-based impersonator Howard X, who has attracted worldwide attention in recent months for his impression of Kim, appeared on stage with Trump lookalike Dennis Alan.
Another element kicking the What the heck? factor of the summit into overdrive was the fact that Dennis Rodman, the eccentric former NBA star, was traveling to Singapore. Rodman says he is a friend of Trump and Kim. He was going to Singapore as part of a promotional push for a digital currency for the cannabis industry. While certainly not expected to figure in the talks, Rodman was offering to be a facilitator for Trump and Kim:
Thanks to my loyal sponsors team , I will be flying to Singapore for the historical Summit. Ill give whatever support is needed to my friends,@realDonaldTrumpand Marshall Kim Jong Un.pic.twitter.com/QGPZ8nPrBE
Los Angeles Times reported that about 2,500 members of the media have registered for the summit. Thats the largest contingent ever hosted in Singapore, according to The Straits Times.
From free swag to swanky branded merchandise, Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia abounded with promotional products. There was everything from official logoed event gear for purchase, to giveaways from a variety of vendors and exhibitors, including household name brands like Xfinity and 5-hour Energy.
Held Thursday through Sunday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, the pop culture event featured talented comic book artists, unique toys and comics for sale, in-person autograph signings from celebrities such as Sebastian Stan, Elijah Wood, Jason Momoa, Sean Astin, and Henry Winkler, and much more. I swung by to check out the merch on offer (tough gig, I know). Heres what I foundand a saber fightkeep scrolling…
First up, official Wizard World Comic Con branded merchandise! As you can see in these first four photos, wearables, totes, drawstring backpacks and lanyards were part of the mix.
DKMS is a nonprofit that helps blood cancer patients find matching donors. To get Comic Con attendees engaged with its mission, the group came up with what the best giveaway I spotted from an exhibitor: This branded cape. Its a perfect product to connect with the superhero-loving Comic Con crowd. DKMS was also giving out the below earbuds in a branded clear plastic slide-open pouch.
Xfinity was promoting HBO GO with the above hat, which attendees were snapping up. Xfinity, which offers cable, internet, telephone and wireless services, also co-branded with Wizard World on the below freebie tote. Neat aside: Xfinity had screenprinters creating totes on the spot.
You could get these 5-hour Energy sunglasses by participating in a basketball shootout game at 5-hours tent booth, which had a real-world game set similar tothisfor the hoops fun.
A super friendly woman at The Lasik Vision Institute table asked me if I was interested in Lasik surgery. I felt bad telling her not really, but she was still nice enough to give me this credit card holder to slap on the back of my phone.
Lots of parents attend Wizard World Comic Con with their kids. It makes sense then for a charter school like Commonwealth Charter Academy to promote at the event. As part of the effort, Commonwealth was handing out free pens, drawstring totes, dog-shaped stress toys, and info cards with a friendly dog mascot.
Army recruiters had a table at the event, too. The guys were very friendly and insisted I take this water bottle and keychain. I was happy to oblige.
A fair share of movie promoting was going on, and there were various types of swag to support the hype-push. I scored these Teen Titans buttons at a booth after playing a little game. To get the buttons or potentially other movie-themed freebies you spun a game wheel. You got whatever swag item the wheel fell still upon.
TV station PHL17 was promoting itself. By liking the station on Facebook, you were entered for a chance to win one of these fun show shirts, I was told.
Well, T-Mobile wasnt about to let itself be missed, was it?
Dudes from The Saber Legion, an international saber combat organization as it were, had quite the duel. I didnt record to the end because it went on a bit (sorry), but the fellow in all black emerged victorious (Im pretty sure).
Clear tote bags are the rage of the runways which means the trend could soon be sweeping the promotional products industry too.
While the roots of clear tote bags might be utilitarian, some high fashion labels have suddenly fell in love with them, creating astoundingly expensive offerings in the category. ThePrada totebelow is a great example of the trend. It was retailing online at Nordstrom recently for $1,040 beforeselling out.
Made in Italy from PVC, the transparent tote features Pradas black logo print across the front and a white canvas trim. In a little nod to privacy, the push-stud top closure reveals a detachable zip-fastening pouch for storing essentials out of sight.
Meanwhile, this transparent Kara PVC Pinch Tote is another example of transparency couture. It retails for $325 hardly even the cost of a lunchtime appetizer for your average Manhattan billionaire.
For those of us sitting in the proletarian seats, though, theres good news. You can still get in on the namebrand clear tote trend for a relatively reasonable price. Urban Outfitters offersthis totefor $25.
Interestingly, the high-fashion transparent trend extends beyond totes intoother bag categories, including reusable shopping bags.The bagbelow is an exclusive collaboration betweenVoo Storeand Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons. Available for about $180, the bag includes a dustbag that can also be used as an inner compartment.
Given the popularity of clear bags in fashion circles, promotional product distributors should anticipate that demand from clients in the promo space will increase, too. And who knows the trend could proliferate well beyond bags altogether, if this tweet from Prada is a clue.
