Shop Custom Sunglasses Design Your Own Sunlasses

Sunglasses are a versatile and affordable product – making them a perfect promotional item. With so many custom styles to choose from, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect pair for your intended audience. This guide will help you find the right style and material to suit your consumers or guests—as well as fit your budget and schedule.

Custom sunglasses are used not only as promotional giveaways but are also used as favors for weddings, bachelorette parties, class and family reunions, 5K runs, and more.


The most popular sunglass types never go out of style: Aviator, Malibu, and Wraparound.


Aviator sunglasses are a classic and timeless style. Most of our personalized Aviator glasses include a thin metal frame and are available in different price options, from discount shades to designer brands like Ray-Ban. If you’re looking for unique options, be sure to check out our mirrored aviators available in five colors!



Malibu is the most popular style of sunglasses thanks to its versatility and fun factor. Our custom Malibu sunglasses are available in neon, two-tone, tortoiseshell, and more. For a way to give your brand optimal exposure, try our full-lens imprint option, fun for sporting events and parties! We also offer this style in children’s sizes for a great price, so you can find the perfect pair for everyone at any event.



Wraparound sunglasses provide a comfortable and snug fit, so they’re great for sporting events and after-event use. Our custom Wraparound sunglasses are available in a variety of lens tints and frame colors, plus polarized options as well. Be sure to take a look at our discount options or designer shades from Bolle, Oakley, and more.


An important aspect to consider before selecting promotional sunglasses is the right frame material, choosing between plastic, metal, polycarbonate or rubber.


Our personalized plastic sunglasses are available in a variety of styles, including wraparound, panama, malibu, and more. Plastic glasses give off a sporty and athletic feel, so they’re perfect for sporting events and outdoor activities. We also have fun plastic options such as beer goggle sunglasses, “Happy Birthday” sunglasses, and jester sunglasses. Keep in mind that plastic is more likely to break, so if you’re looking for a more enduring material, try our custom rubber sunglasses or other options.



Our custom metal sunglasses are available in aviator styles with silver and gold finishes. The thin metal frame allows your logo to display clearly on the lens; if you prefer adding your logo to frame sides, take a look at plastic sunglasses instead.



A variety of polycarbonate sunglasses are available in malibu, wraparound, and aviator styles in a wide selection of colors. The polycarbonate material is impact-resistant and provides protection from UV rays. Thanks to polycarbonate’s UV protection and lightweight feel, this material is great for sporting activities like cycling and running. A selection of safety glasses are also offered in this material to for eye protection on the job or at home.


Rubber is the most affordable frame material and the least prone to breaking. With many colors and discount options to choose from, our custom rubber sunglasses are also available in children’s sizes and make great giveaways at tradeshows, college campuses, company picnics, and more!



Brand recognition can play a key role in choosing sunglasses and depending on your audience, designer shades can be a worthwhile investment. Custom designer sunglasses are a great gift for employees, clients, or staff, to show your appreciation.
