Why Print Retail Quality Shirts:
If you are the buyer for your retail store, your store needs custom shirts and hats with your brand name. Custom shirts and hats for your clients will give you a uniform look, increase customer loyalty, and give you higher brand recognition.
Three main reasons for quality retail shirts:
When clients receive a custom shirt from your store, they are likely to wear over and over again. Imagine the visibility your brand is receiving on a daily basis… long after the shirt is received! Now, think of how the likelihood of wearing the shirt increases when you have a fantastic design instead of the standard brand shirt. A good design goes a long way when it comes to custom shirts!
How To Ensure Best Quality for the Best Price:
Guarantees: This may sound simple, but you’d be surprised how many print shops don’t guarantee their work. Make sure that your shop provides, in writing, a 100% quality guarantee.
Buy Quality Shirts: Quality control of the garment manufacturer is huge when printing shirts. Little things, like the collar not being perfectly center or the sleeves not matching, can be detrimental when printing... things that pass through on lower-grade shirts will be clearly visible when you slap that perfectly gorgeous (and straight!) logo across the chest.
Comfortable Prints: No one wants to buy a high quality shirt with a plastic-type print… make sure your shop offers soft-hand water-based screen printing!
How To Print Quality Retail Shirts:
For your store’s shirts, most places print a simple one or two color chest print of your brand logo and / or name. If you really want to stand out from other stores, we recommend going with a multicolor print. Think of all the typical brand shirts out there, and how they usually use a cheap shirt with a boring design … now imagine seeing a colorful shirt with a classy design. Clients are more likely to wear these shirts, thus increasing your brand recognition and loyalty.
Usually as a center chest print, the front custom print will be about 10” x 10.” This print will significantly add to the professional image your brand deserves, as well as offering the client a custom shirt he or she can be proud to wear.
The back of your custom shirt will have your logo printed larger across the shoulder blades, approximately 11” x 6.” Below your logo, a good idea may be to print a cool design. Of course, these locations are flexible and will be unique for each purpose, you also may want to consider placing the prints in unique locations such as a hip print or a shoulder print!
Unique prints on your custom shirts will greatly increase your brand’s visibility to the public as they are very eye-catching… Remember that client who stops at Foodland or Don Quijote wearing your custom shirt?
Remember: Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
When it comes to screen printing, you get what you pay for. A company that has slightly higher prices will likely be able to offer more value and deliver a higher quality print and have better customer service. You’ll be more pleased with your experience.
Inexperienced (cheap) printers can print a custom retail shirt or hat that looks good for a day... or two... for a low price. Your apparel will be showing signs of age after the first or second wash. The ink will be cracking and the ink may even bleed. What a waste of money!
An experienced printer is able to guarantee their work and offer you much more value for a slightly higher price. Your brand’s shirts will look great for years to come. You will feel much more satisfied with your printing experience and will have been happy to pay the extra buck for a shirt so that it lasts.
