Austin Promotional Products

Austin, Texas is the state's capital and home to a vibrant culture, lively music and film industries, as well as Fortune 500 companies such as Dell and Whole Foods. The city of Austin is located in Central Texas within Travis County, but Metro Austin stretches out to Williamson County to the North, Hays County to the West and Bastrop County to the East. The city has grown exponentially and was the third-fastest-growing large city in the nation from 2000 to 2006. Austin's population continues to expand out from Downtown Austin to Round Rock, Wells Branch, Pflugerville and out as far as Georgetown and San Marcos. With its growth, Austin also has initiatives in place to sustain the businesses and culture that Austinites have grown to love with their unofficial slogan "Keep Austin Weird". From tie dye t-shirts and hats to bumper stickers, Austin promotional products with the Keep Austin Weird logo are sold to support smaller, local businesses and to keep the fun, eclectic culture in place.

Austin at Local Music Festivals

As of 1991, Austin's official slogan became The Live Music Capital of the World® because of the number of live music venues in the city. With so many music venues, many artists and musicians play shows in Downtown Austin and the surrounding areas of Travis Heights and West University, but live music can be heard anywhere in Metro Austin. Surprisingly there are also some great venues worth driving to in San Marcos and Pflugerville. Austin has also become internationally known for its music festivals from South by Southwest and Urban Music Fest to Austin City Limits. South by Southwest attracts the best talent in music, film and interactive from all over the county. It is one of the highlights of the festival to get your South by Southwest Big Bag and discover all the merch inside from musicians and sponsors. The SXSW Big Bag's are filled with swag such as pens, magnets, koozies and t-shirts and are given to every registrant when they check in. These custom products received at the festival can be seen all over the conference halls and at the numerous music and film venues around the city.

Austin's Film Industry

Austin has become a featured destination for filming movies, television shows and commercials in recent years in large part because of the incentives and promotion from Austin's Film Commission. Austin has played host to hundreds of films both big budget and small independent films; some of the more famous films include Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Varsity Blues, Miss Congeniality and Dazed and Confused. Austin's mild weather and beautiful topography make it an ideal place to film with hills to the West in Hays County and agriculture to the East in Bastrop County, as well as city backdrops in Downtown Austin, Travis Heights and West University. The Austin Film Commission should use imprinted items to continue to promote the city of Austin to indie filmmakers, as well as blockbuster film producers and directors. Unique products such as clapboard shaped key chains, imprinted film reels filled with popcorn or custom director's chairs would make great promotional items for the film industry.
