Even after the downfall of civilization, these promotional tools will continue to raise brand awareness!
You probably have more important things to do than ponder an unlikely zombie apocalypse or how such an invasion would affect your company’s promotional efforts, but a slow work day can get the creative juices flowing and set the imagination reeling. Such out-of-the-box thinking can lead to a deeper examination of your promotional product inventory and inspire new ideas for creative branding. (Just indulge us here…)
Sure most of the products on this list can be used by camping enthusiasts and nature lovers while other items wouldn’t be out of place in an emergency preparedness kit. But don’t underestimate the niche market of outdoor survivalist types and doomsday preppers. Heck, you may even have some distant cousins that are just itching to re-stock their old Y2K bunker!
No, not all of these products are weapons or lifesavers, but if you can get a hungry zombie to bite down on a freebie promotional pen instead of your arm, then hey, you live to see another day! And who knows? Maybe when society begins to rebuild, one of these custom printed products will have survived with your logo intact to make your brand an industry leader in the renewed world!
A lot of abandoned cars and trucks litter the landscape after an outbreak of whatever it is that re-animates zombies. So these seat belt cutter tools will come in handy when you inevitably have to rescue your new friends and allies after they’ve been involved in a post-apocalyptic fender bender. The steel point works well for breaking glass and is probably good for busting zombie heads as well, though that latter use hasn’t been product tested yet.
If you think bottle openers are hard to find now, just image how tough it will be after all the stores and kitchens have been ransacked for supplies! With this little multi-tool, you’ll be able to open cans, pop tops off of bottles and twist off rusty and dented lids with one tiny convenient portable gadget. Less time hunting down can openers means you’ll have more time to hunt for actual cans of food!
Prevailing national infrastructure concerns lead one to believe that electrical grids probably won’t be too reliable after a zombie outbreak. And with our current addiction to smartphones and other handheld gadgets, anything solar powered will be a godsend in the zombie apocalypse. Take these solar power banks for instance. They will help keep radios and walkie talkies charged for emergency communication. And you might even be able to keep playing video games on your phone!
LED flashlights are a no-brainer for your post-apocalyptic supply list! These handheld lanterns will help you explore (possibly?) abandoned building as you scavenge for supplies. And the exterior Mossy Oak® camouflage allows you to strategically hide it in outdoor locations for night time emergency escape situations. The ultra-bright LED is sure to illuminate a safe path to your next secure location!
Sticking with the importance of flashlights and remembering what was stated above regarding the electrical grid. Yeah, you’re going to want one of these hand crank flashlights. You might even want to start doing your hand exercises now to make sure you’re in shape for the inevitable workout you’re going to get using these things. Batteries, shmatteries…
Optimistic survivors of the zombie apocalypse will want to hold onto some relics from the past for when they eventually get around to rebuilding society. Protect jewelry, important documents, ID cards, money and small electronic devices, like smartphones and flash drives, and keep them safe from the elements with these waterproof storage cases. The world will eventually get around to rebuilding itself, so make sure to keep these small remembrances of the old world secure!
The previously mentioned Mossy Oak camouflage pattern is going to be very popular in the zombie apocalypse for both utilitarian and fashion reasons. Keep your survival supplies close to the hip with these stylish and multi-functional fanny packs and keep both hands free for holding weapons and pushing back zombie hoards. Available with either pink or olive trim because even though society may be crumbling around you, fashion will never die!
Sick of camouflage yet? Well, too bad! You better get used to it because camouflage is going to be absolutely EVERYWHERE in the zombie apocalypse! Wear camo gear and stay very, very still, and hopefully the zombie hoard won’t notice you as it shuffles by. And you’ll need to stay armed but not with a shiny steel blade that could reflect bright light. You’ll want one of these camouflage bullseye knives, great for cutting rope and cutting your way through a herd of zombies!
Let’s face it. Certain aspects of the zombie apocalypse are going to be downright gross – wet, slimy, smelly, gooey gross. So you’ll definitely need to invest in a good pair of gloves for when you inevitably come in contact with whatever zombie fluids may be out there. These neoprene latex gloves are flock lined on the inside so no matter what kind of goop you’re scooping up, your hands will stay warm and dry on the inside!
If you have a small first aid kit tucked away in a glove box or back of a drawer, you may want to take an inventory or make note of exactly which drawer it’s hiding in. First aid kits will become exponentially more valuable in the zombie apocalypse. They may even become a new form of currency as survivors trade them for food and other supplies. This particular model features a convenient handle so you can attach it to belts or backpacks. (Come to think of it, these are pretty handy even before the zombie apocalypse. You should probably know where to find one of these first aid kits any day that you bother to get out of bed.)
