T-Shirt Printing For Construction Companies Around Brooklyn

T-Shirt Printing In Brooklyn: Construction Companies

If you are a screen printer, work for a screen printing company, or looking to get into the t-shirt printing field I would defiantly advise you to target some construction companies. Gaining a customer who has a company in the construction, plumbing, electric, or even pest control field is in fact gaining a repeating customer – They just keep ordering. Also, when they order, the t-shirts and hoodies they design are so simple and easy to print, it’s a no brainer.

Order large amounts:

Think about it in the eyes of a contractor; They wake up in the morning, brush their teeth and throw on some clothes. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to make sure those clothes, specifically the t-shirt and sweatshirt have some kind of advertisement printed on them? So contractors order t-shirts, hoodies and various other apparel screen printed with their logo and information on them. Now figure this contractor is the owner of the company and he has 15 employees working for him, he would of course want all 15 of these employees wearing the company branded uniforms. This way he just multiplied his exposure by 15 times! So suppose he now has to order at least one t-shirt and hoodie for every day of the week, time the 15 employees he has working for him – that’s over 200 pieces being printed!

Repeated orders:

The thing I love with contractors and owners of construction companies is how many times they come back and order from you. Why do I say this you may ask? Well the reason is because they fire and hire employees very frequently. Lets just say and employee received 7 hoodies and 7 t-shirts, but quit two weeks into working – you aren’t going to take his uniform back from him. In addition, think about how much dirt is going to be accumulated on the garments. The employees are dealing with construction materials on a daily basis and either dirty, or damage their uniforms pretty frequently. As a result the contractor tends to order uniforms pretty frequently.

Simple and easy designs:

Isn’t it every screen printers dream to have an order for 72-144 shirts with a front left chest and a full back using black ink? I’ve printed so many jobs where the shirts are safety green, or safety orange with black ink front and back. Another common color combination is navy colored t-shirts with white ink front and back, again very simple and easy to print, as you can see in the image to the right. Once in a while through, you will get the once customer who has a really nice and intricate design with 3-4 colors that need to be printed. I am not saying that’s a bad thing, god for bid we love every customer the same way, I am just pointing out that not all orders are as easy to print.

The Brooklyn t-shirt printing industry has vastly grown over the year and much of the business being distributed around the screen printing companies is coming from contractors, electricians, plumbers and exterminators.

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!
