Screen Printing CrossFit T-Shirts & Other Apparel
CrossFit is a type of workout routine that has been trending in the recent years and largely grown as well. Everywhere I turn I see another CrossFit, especially in New York. Currently we screen print CrossFit t-shirts, tank tops and hoodies for many CrossFit gyms around Brooklyn New York, but also around the world and I love doing so!
Why I love screen printing CrossFit t-shirts?
First of all, I love printing t-shirts for all customers – so don’t get me wrong here. But in regards to CrossFit gear you have to look at who will be wearing the merchandise. I have to say that I have never seen a niche so excited over their gear and so supportive over the gear. We screen print for many gyms all over and I don’t see any gym that sells as much merchandise as I see when we print for CrossFit gyms. That is because the members are very supportive and love to rock the gear. If you look at CrossFit Steed located in Brooklyn for example, we designed some nice raglan t-shirts for them for their 1 year anniversary They listed it on their website and literally overnight they sold it to over 100 members! I see this over an over again with several other CrossFit gyms we screen print for.
CrossFit merchandise and types of garments:
Over the years, printing for a certain niche you tend to learn a lot about them in regards to what they do and do not like. What I have learned about CrossFit members is that they LOVE to order Triblend t-shirts. I am not sure if it is because it absorbs sweat well, or doesn’t shrink to much, but they love it. We’ve printed for CrossFit gyms in Brooklyn New York, Queens New York even printed for gyms in Thailand and Israel and they always choose the Triblend shirts.
They order frequently:
For the CrossFit gym when they sell shirts to their members, they not only advertise but also fundraise in a way. Figure they order a shirt from their screen printing company at $7-$10 per shirt and sell it for $20 to each member. They can make almost $1,000 for 100 members, which is awesome money! So because they know their members love to wear the gear, they always come up with new designs and new ideas. This way the members are always buying the new merchandise.
How can you go about ordering custom CrossFit T-Shirts?
It’s pretty simple actually. If you own a CrossFit gym you want to first come up with a design, or idea based on your gym’s theme. I’ve seen a lot of designs based on barbells, cattle bells and horses, all are related to power and strength. The next step would be to find a screen printing company that prints custom CrossFit t-shirts and apparel. Simply go to Google and type in Screen Printing Companies Near Me, look through the results and I am sure that one of those companies can handle your job. After that, let them mock it up for you on a line-sheet, this way you can post it around in your gym and online. This will allow you to collect preorders and save money when ordering. Place your order, wait a little bit of time to allow the gear to be printed, and Walla you have some CrossFit gear!
