You’ve probably seen people walking around at barbeques, family reunions, and trade shows while wearing custom shirts. But have you ever thought of ordering a batch of custom shirts for yourself or your company? We get orders for all sorts of occasions; here are just a few of the reasons people have designed a shirt.
School spirit isn’t just around during sports seasons. Ordering a batch of custom t-shirts for a school can help you ramp up excitement and get students to feel involved. Try purchasing shirts themed around the yearly school fair, graduation, or even an informal dance. Include the school name, the date, and the title of the event; if you want, you can even have a contest to have the students design an image for the shirt. If students have a yearly chance to get their artwork worn by everyone in the school, they’re bound to come up with some incredibly creative ideas.
You can also order shirts with your school’s logo, mascot, or letters. Students should be proud to be a part of their school and their education, and having a piece of custom apparel will make them feel more attached. And, of course, it’s hard for a highschooler to have too many t-shirts. The faculty can even get in on the fun, showing off their pride in their work.
When’s the last time you threw out a t-shirt that didn’t have holes or stains? It usually doesn’t matter what logo is on that shirt – if it fits your outfit, you’re probably going to wear it. This makes t-shirt giveaways an excellent way to support your business. The logo on the shirt won’t just be in your customers’ minds; it will also be visible to everyone they come in contact with.
Of course, you have to remember to tie that shirt to a good memory if you want to have a positive association with your brand. Make the giveaway part of a larger event or contest, and your customers will be wearing your logo for years to come.
If you aren’t sure where to start with your promotional giveaway, pass some of the shirts to your employees and their families before a company event. For example, think of all of the shirts you see and read while you’re waiting in line at an amusement park. If you’re taking the office out for a day of fun, give everyone a shirt, and let them promote the business while they’re waiting to ride a roller coaster. This also works for community fairs and trips to the museum or zoo.
Even if your company doesn’t have an official uniform, you still occasionally need your employees to be recognized. One way to do this is to print a series of custom staff shirts.
These shirts can help increase awareness of your business during door to door sales, trade shows, or any event in which you or your employees are representing the company. The shirt turns you into a walking business card, promoting your brand every time you walk out the door.
Depending on your style of business, consider ordering polo shirts or even investing in embroidery. Your logo doesn’t have to be printed large; even a subtle reminder of your workplace can help increase the number of clients who call you back after your initial conversation.
If you take part in a large event or visit a yearly festival, you’re going to want to remember it. One way to give visitors a keepsake and help promote your event for future years is to give out custom t-shirts with the event information. If the event was fun, they’ll wear the shirt, and remember to come back next year.
This is especially true for large scale runs, walks, bicycle rides, marathons, and other sporting events. Participants will be proud that they attended; giving them a shirt shows recognition for their achievement. If you know ahead of time, consider printing the names of major participants or attendees on the back of the shirt. You can also print the names of sponsors, which will help fund the cost of both the shirts and the event itself.
When you fall in love with a new band, you usually want to tell everyone. T-shirts with your band’s logo on them are a great way to let your fans show their support, and increase your listeners. Sell your shirts after concerts, or give them away to a lucky number of fans at the show itself. When they walk up to purchase a shirt, they’ll probably take a look at albums, too, helping get even more of your music out there.
Of course, you can also print a few custom shirts for the band members themselves. Walking onstage in matching gear can help you get attention, especially if you’re playing at an event that features a lot of musicians. After countless amazing songs, it can be difficult to remember the name of that one band you liked – unless they were wearing it on a shirt.
From staff parties to a large scale family reunion, people want to remember their favorite events. Screen printed t-shirts can be ordered for events of nearly any size. Give everyone a shirt for the office barbeque, or to celebrate your end-of-semester party. When they pull it out of the closet years later, they’ll remember all of the fun times they had.
Custom shirts also make a great way to recognize fellow partygoers, especially if you’re going to an amusement park, museum, or somewhere similar. When you’ve got 30 family members from across the state, knowing which shirt color to look for can be a lifesaver in a large crowd.
Do you have the funniest idea for a t-shirt? Get your witty saying screen printed, and you can start your own online clothing line. Because you can order shirts in various quantities and in different sizes, nothing is stopping you from waiting to place that order until a customer places theirs. Just remember to factor the cost of the printing process itself into the price of the shirt. If you order in bulk, you can sell the shirts for cheaper – but keep in mind that you’ll have to keep a large stock around.
Because custom shirts are so affordable and easy to order, you can get them for nearly any kind of event. Design a few shirts to share with your friends, or plan a large order for your entire workplace. If you can dream it up, you can make a t-shirt out of it.
