Shirts for Weird, Wacky and Unofficial Holidays

They’re bizarre, unique, wacky and completely unofficial however they are a lot of fun and make our days, weeks and months more enjoyable. We’re talking about shirts for Unofficial Holidays. These holidays aren’t your traditional Federal holidays like Independence Day, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Most of them are off the wall like “Walk Around Things Day” (April 4th) or “Hug Your Cat Day” (June 4th). However there are many Unofficial Holidays that have meaning to someone else which means the opportunity to sell more apparel!

For instance April is National Welding Month. The entire month gives us the opportunity to pay tribute to the professional welders who help build America every day and the future welders who will continue the advancements in welding. Now this is a holiday that isn’t celebrated by the masses, however this month is important to those in the industry. Think about the opportunity here. There are hundreds of thousands of welders and student welders in the US. We’re sure there are even dozens of welding companies in your local area that would find this month to be important. You have the opportunity to make this month special to them. What better way then to provide them custom apparel with unique design layouts from the Idea Book?

No matter what the holiday is, there is an opportunity to find customers through promotional giveaways. Let’s take a look at some more unofficial holidays that are coming up in April. These will give you ideas for the type of customer or designs you will expect to see.
