An imprinted apparel item serves as a walking advertisement and brand identity for your business. If smartly chosen, it provides a stylish appearance for your front-line staff and becomes a memorable gift to VIP clients and strategic alliances. When selecting apparel for imprinting or embroidered decoration, you’ll want to consider the following 3 factors in addition to color and logo design:

  •  Fabric function – Where and how will the apparel item be used or worn? Things to consider when choosing a fabric are qualities such as water-resistance, moisture wicking, antimicrobial, and anti-shrink/anti-pill.)
  •  Gender of recipient – Men’s and women’s shirt styles vary greatly, with the latter being more tailored to fit to the contours of a woman’s body. Logo placement may also be affected, as most experienced buyers will steer clear of placing a logo on the chest of a women’s style shirt.)
  • Quality of garment – This includes issues such as dimensional stability, garment construction, and fabric type. Apparel quality directly affects longevity and, therefore, the return on your marketing investment.)

We provide both embroidery and screen printing services for your corporate apparel items. An embroidered logo or design gives your apparel a sophisticated look and can be applied to number of different textiles. A screen printed design for your custom apparel can utilize multiple colors and textures on the same item while being applicable to a large number of fabrics. We will help you select the right process to match your look, needs, and budget.
