June 2012 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!

Is it just us, or has 2012 flown by? It’s just about summer and it’s time to plan for our June 2012 promotions!

As the first month of summer, June is the perfect time to plan out all of your summertime and warm weather promotions. Anticipate all of the time your clients will spend outdoors by equipping them with branded Frisbees and sunblock.

The warm weather and the lack of school brings tons and tons of summer sport leagues. Make sure that your players are equipped for their games with imprinted bags and stay nice and hydrated with water bottles.

What else is happening in June? Let’s take a look (click to enlarge):

With June comes Father’s Day! For the dads in your office or client list, treat them to items that they can use all summer long, like golf ball caddies for the links or grilling sets for outdoor meals and tailgating.

By mid-June, the majority of colleges and universities have ended for the year, so there will be swarms of new graduates. Whether you want to congratulate them for four years of hard work with a commemorative key tag, or guilt them into donating to the alumni fund with tote bags, or entice them to work for your company, there are plenty of ways to get your brand name into those eager hands.

Prepare your customers for summer months and camping trips by outfitting them with logo coolers. They can kick back with a cool drink and eat the lunch they packed. When the sun goes down, an imprinted lantern will help keep the party going.

All of us here at Quality Logo Products are excited for June 2nd. We love throwing a party in honor of our stress ball mascot Bubba, and we know that he just adores the attention.

If any of the products in our calendar interested you, you can find them on our site here: Rubberized Sunglasses, Flag Stress Reliever, and Captain’s Chair.

    National Candy Month! SWEEEEEET!

    Sunglasses Day sounds pretty cool too.

    I love June <3 Nice rundown Mandy, I had no idea some of these fun little "holidays" even existed 🙂

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      National Candy Month is definitely sweet. I think we need to celebrate it all month long in the office! 🙂

  2. Jill Tooley

    I’m going to wear my sunglasses on Sunglasses Day no matter what time it is! I’ll be the coolest person at the office that day! 😀

    It’s going to be summer in less than a month? Didn’t we just have snow on the ground not too long ago? Yikes…

  3. Mandy Kilinskis

    Maybe it’s just my love of 80s music, but I always thought that people who wore their sunglasses at night were super cool.

    Yeah, I’m not really sure when summer got here. Since I seem to be the only person that doesn’t really like summer that much, I’m not too excited about it. 🙁

  4. Rachel

    Adopt a Cat Month? Heck yeah!!! Combined with Candy Month, this makes June more awesome than ever.

    Thanks as usual for the calendar, Mandy — these are always a fun read. 🙂

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      Are you going to adopt a kitty during June, Rachel? Maybe eat some Skittles as you do? 😉

  5. Candice J.

    National Candy Month??? I think my daughter and I can get behind that for sure!! Also I’m pretty excited about Fathers Day. I think if you’re blessed enough to have a great one still in your life there’s nothing better then to have a day to honor them! I suppose I’m just sentimental like that! I would love to adopt a cat….if my daughter wouldn’t try to ride it, or fight it. I guess I’ll have to wait a little longer to partake in that festivity.

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      I question anyone that CAN’T get behind National Candy Month. I mean, come on, candy!

      And maybe in a couple more Junes you can give a cat a home. 🙂

  6. Extreme John

    Ahhh it’s time for my most helpful read of the month. Thank you as always for the June setup. I have a ton going on today, so it looks like this bad boy will be getting multiple shares.

    Happy Friday!

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      I’m glad that you enjoy our calendar posts, John! As long as you keep finding them useful, I (or one of the other bloggers) will keep writing them!

      And we’ll take all the shares! Good luck with the events today (I saw the pictures on Google+) and have a great Friday! 🙂
