Meet the 2023 Merch Madness Winners!

It’s been an exciting week of tough competition, and the Merch Madness champions of 2023 have finally claimed their title! With lots of close calls, upsets, and rising underdogs, competitors and spectators alike were on their toes for each matchup!

Over the last week, fans supported their companies by voting for their merch photos via our Instagram story! Our competing brands rallied their fans to vote for their photos, and their friends, family, and customers showed up consistently to vote each round! It was a fun display of brand pride and strong competition.

Now that the fans have cast their votes and the competition has come to a close, it’s time to introduce the 2023 Merch Madness winners!

First Place

Meet the 2023 Merch Madness Champions: Varieka Construction! Taking a confident stance in their custom workwear, the Varieka team took home the grand prize of $500 in Merchology Credit!

The Varieka Construction team is sporting their custom Carhartt gear. The logo-embroidered Carhartt Men's New Navy Midweight Hooded Sweatshirt is a sturdy but lightweight cotton/polyester blend that makes a great mid-layer for chillier days. The corporate Carhartt Men's Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip Mock Sweatshirt is tough enough to withstand heavy work and cold, windy days. The custom Carhartt Men's Navy Force Cotton L/S T-Shirt is extremely comfortable and allows a wide range of motion for employees who are always on the move.

Second Place

In second place is the super cool and extra spunky San Diego Gaggle youth baseball team! They struck a pose on the diamond, and their awesome photo earned them $150 in Merchology credit.
