Swag, especially good swag, can be important. Thats where Swag.com comes in. The company, which launched 15 months ago, aims to be a way for companies to get quality swag to help people rep their brands.

People think of swag as junk, but it shouldnt be, Swag co-founder Jeremy Parker told TechCrunch. It could be an amazing marketing tool if its built right.

Swag.com offers products like water bottles, umbrellas, shirts, jackets, USB drives, bags and other items from brands like Patagonia and Case Logic. Once you pick the product, you upload your designs, specify how many you want printed and then wait for Swag to send you the production mock-up for approval.

Standard production time takes about 15 days, while priority production takes 10 days and costs a bit more. Production doesnt start until the customer has approved the mock-up. Because Swag works directly with the manufacturer and vendor, it doesnt have to hold any inventory.

Were like Barneys but without the inventory, Parker said.
