There are so many choices when shopping for promotional clothing or printed t-shirts. You may be thinking that the main choices are various colored golf shirts with the name of the company embroidered on the upper left quadrant. If thatís your image of promotional clothing then youíre in for a big surprise.
Like most things in life today, there are choices. You donít have to assume golf shirts are the only choice, unless thatís what you prefer, of course. There is a large variety of apparel that is embroidered or printed today. These items include caps, vests, shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, jackets, aprons and jogging bottoms to name just a few. The various types of clothing can be worn by employees, given away to customers or used as rewards for business. Many companies sponsor youth sports teams which develops brand goodwill when people see the young athletes wearing clothing with your company name on it.
Besides the type of clothing, you can also choose quality. Not all embroidered shirts are equal. Itís important to purchase items that have good quality because your brand image can be damaged when people are seen wearing clothing that has inferior quality. That doesnít mean you have to pay an exorbitant amount for promotional clothing. It only means you need to avoid wasting money on inferior clothing that will soon have to be replaced or will harm your brand or reputation.
Other clothing characteristics to consider include color, embroidery vs. printing, and content. Content refers to what is embroidered or printed on the clothing which can include name, logo and/or a message.
Itís always good to have choices and especially when those choices can help you build your business. So think golf shirtsÖor not. The choice is yours.
