When you’re ordering a promotional product, whether it’s a series of pens or tote bags for a contest, it’s tempting to purchase the cheapest possible. If you’re giving something away for free, it makes sense to spend as little as possible, right?

But in reality, promotional products are just as important part of your marketing program as a well-designed print ad. If done correctly, your return on investment (ROI) can be far greater than the amount you actually spent in the first place.

In this post we’re exploring the history of screen printing, which appears a murky topic until the last century, when the process really took off.

Most accounts put the birth of screen printing in China during the Song Dynasty (960-1279 CE), while there are strong claims for the origination of the technique by other cultures around the Mediterranean. During the Song Dynasty, the screens/stencils that were used for prints included block shapes held in place by human hair in a wooden frame. Hair is sufficiently strong and fine to support the stencils, while allowing ink to reach the substrate.

Starting a company is a challenge of its own. You need to form a business plan, decide what service or product you are offering, and get a logo and a website. If you’re selling a product, you also need to prepare your stock, decide how you are packaging it, and consider renting an in-person storefront. But even once everything is ready to go, you can’t just expect customers to come walking in your door. They need to hear about you first – which means you need to find a way to promote your company.

If you’ve ever seen an old image of pioneer women sewing with a hoop, you’ve probably seen basic embroidery. Humans have been using colored thread to put images into cloth since dyed thread was invented. Instead of using stitches to hold an article of clothing together, the stitches are used to create a pattern or an image.

High school and college are big deals when you enter. The next four years will have a huge impact on your education and social life. Because of this, it’s important to encourage students to participate and feel included. The closer they feel to the school, the more motivated they will be. One good way to promote student involvement and your school in general is to hold a promotional t-shirt giveaway.
