Welcome back to Swag in the Wild!
Since day one of SwagUp, we’ve believed in the importance of high quality branded swag — especially for growing businesses passionate about their mission. Because good swag isn’t just a promotional tool; it’s also a physical connection between members and a community!
Founded by Daniel Snow, RapTV is a multimedia organization that started with a simple Instagram page. Today, that same account has over 6.4 million followers and is a hugely popular community for fans of rap culture.
HPL Training (HPLT) is a unique community started by entrepreneur and high performer Brian Mazza. The HPLT retreat is described as “a celebration of laser-focused like-minded humans” where individuals gather for three days and go through human performance growth activities in a team environment, including keynote speakers, sunrise yoga & meditation, multiple HIIT workouts, team runs, and more.
🚀 SWAG PROJECT
PURPOSE: High Quality Custom Branded Shirts
SWAG SUCCESS INGREDIENTS: Bulk Swag, Curated Swag Catalog, SwagUp Platform
THE DETAILS: The RapTV team knew a high quality brand deserves a high quality shirt. While it’s easy to slap a logo on the cheapest shirt you can find, the truth is people won’t wear an uncomfortable or badly designed shirt. And logo placement matters more than you might think.
It doesn’t have to be complicated but it does have to match your brand’s style. Subtle or bold? What kind of ink? How many colors? 100% cotton or a triblend? Your Swag Expert can help you figure out the best choice for your brand. Props to the RapTV team for creating these on-brand shirts, nicely screen printed with their front and center.
(And in case you were wondering, yes, that is the ever-popular Bella + Canvas Tee 😉)
