You may have seen the excitement at an arena or special event when T-shirts or other promotional items are shot up high into the seats for excited fans to catch a treasure of the game or special event they are attending. One of the top suppliers of these specialty cannons is located right here in Colorado. The company is Air Cannons, Inc., which has supplied hundreds of sports teams and event venues with personally designed cannons and a variety of promotional items.
Air Cannons are in action just about every night in arenas and stadiums around the nation and around the world. One recent development provided by Air Cannons, Inc. is the added convenience of shrink-wrapping the T-shirts so it’s more convenient for the shooter to blast out more shirts in a shorter amount of time. And they’ve added new products that can be shot into the crowd.
Personalized cannons built by Air Cannons, Inc. have been featured in such shows as “American Chopper”, “Pimp My Ride” and in a commercial for ESPN. Air Cannons are used as a marketing tool at events to excite the crowd, but also to brand the sports team or their sponsors. Besides shooting T-shirts, the air cannons can also shoot other items that include coupons or other branding materials.
Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, had this to say about air cannons in his January 15, 2007, blog posting, “The minute the T-shirt cannons or slingshots come on the court, field or ice, every man, woman or child of any age is up screaming their head off trying to get a free t-shirt. They have no idea what is on the shirt. They know the chances of getting one are slim, but it doesn’t matter. It’s t-shirts gone wild.”
With the new shrink-wrap service, each t-shirt will be wrapped in plastic and ready to launch, providing a nice professional look when a person catches the shirt. The shrink-wrap also protects the t-shirts from dirt and scuffs in case it hits the ground. Previously t-shirts were wrapped in tape or rubber bands to keep the t-shirt together while in flight.
Air Cannons also provides custom promotional products that symbolize your company and are perfect for launching out from an air cannon. Ideas include foam formed bottles, cans, stuffed animals, and soft toy cars. Promotional products can be imprinted with coupons and contact information. With hundreds of possible shapes, stress relievers provide a unique marketing tool for companies.
“We know the crowds light up when our cannons come out during breaks, and we’re looking forward to seeing that happen more often with our continued growth at arenas and events worldwide,” said Jake Wilson, co-owner of Air Cannons, Inc.
