Promotional T-Shirt Used For Advertising

Did you recently open a new company, business, or startup? Are you looking for a way to get your name out there?
We’ll what I always suggest to my customers is free branded giveaways and what better to give out than a custom t shirt printed with your logo on it. I always tell my customers, customized t-shirts are like a walking billboard. Imagine you print up 50 shirts and hand them out to people over 50 cities. Now every time that person will walk around that city, your company is being advertised. Now take that and multiply it by the 50 people you gave those t-shirts to, you now have exposure in over 50 (moving) locations!
Now the question is what type of shirt should you get? Should you spend tons of money and get a great quality t-shirt? Pr should you pick the simplest shirt with the most basic print in order to save money? We’ll here is my suggestion, in simple words save money! But it’s a bit more complicated than that. On the one hand you want to save all the money you can – this way you can order the most possible shirts which will allow you to gain the most possible exposure. But on the other hand, you want to get some good quality t-shirts in order to keep your brand reputation up and have people notice your brand. So I think it’s best to choose a good brand shirt that is still affordable, something like the Anvil 980. This shirt is made of a soft style ring spun cotton, this gives off a very soft feeling to the shirt. It also has a very European cut, where the shirt hugs the body rather than being a boxy cut. Then I would print just a single color imprint on both sides of the shirt. This would give off advertisement in the front and rear of the shirt as well.
Hope this helps!

Should I Spend The Extra Money On a Softer Better Shirt

When ordering custom shirts customers are always asking for better quality shirts as well as many other questions. But is it really worth it to invest in a better types of garments? The answer to this is really that it depends on what the shirts are being used for.

If you are ordering the t-shirts as a promotional giveaway in effort to advertise your business, then of course the less money spent for the most exposure the better. Therefore pick the cheapest shirt with the least amount of ink colors bring printed on it and save yourself some money. T-shirts are a walk billboard, so regardless of whether or not the shirts are rough, soft, big, or small your message will still get across.

Now if you are trying to start a clothing line or looking to order garments for your retail store, I would definitely suggest to go with a higher quality shirt. At the end of the day we’re all in it to make money, so it is important to look at the numbers associated with the shirts. A customer comes in and places an order for a basic Gildan t-shirt with a 1-color front imprint and tag print on the inside neck area. He pays just about $7-$9 per each t-shirt and can probably retail it for $15, maybe $20 if the brand is already built and there is a demand for the product. On the other hand, take for example a Next Level Apparel or Bella Canvas t-shirt with the same 1-color front and tag print on the inner neck area. You might end up paying closer to $9-$11, but the retail markup is higher because the shirt is a much better and softer feeling shirt. The end user would actually pay more for a higher quality garment, probably around $23-$30 depending on the brand. So in essence, if you are an owner of a retail store, clothing line, or trying to start a line I would most defiantly suggest to try either a Next Level Apparel shirt, or Bella Canvas shirt.

Next time you stop by your local screen printing company, ask them to show you a Next Level Apparel t-shirt and you will see what I mean.
