American Swag:<br>The Best USA-Made Promotional Products

By purchasing promotional items that are made in America, you can do more than show your patriotism: you can also win over potential and existing customers. According to a 2015 survey from Consumer Reports, 84 percent of Americans believe that USA-made products are reliable, and only 10 percent say they don't make an effort to purchase products that are made in America.

USA-made products can benefit you, too: without the tariffs that are often associated with imported goods, domestic products can actually be less expensive than their foreign counterparts. Luckily, there are plenty of American promotional products you can use to grow your brand while showcasing your national pride, saving money and gaining consumers' favor.

Here's the best American swag to give your recipients.

Apparel

Apparel that's made in the USA is high-quality, looks great and is perfect for displaying your logo loud and proud. You can never go wrong with custom shirts, hats, and other apparel.

The Port & Company® All-American Long Sleeve Tee is one of our favorite made in USA t-shirts. Crafted from soft cotton and reinforced with a double needle hem, this t-shirt is built to last:

Bags and Totes
