However, many business leaders are unsure of how to go about printing your business logo on polo shirts. Luckily, the process is not particularly difficult.

    Unlike other items of clothing, personalized clothes cannot be purchased in a traditional store. These items must be custom made at t-shirt printers. Online t-shirt printers like,  have the experience and equipment needed to successfully print a durable logo onto a polo shirt or hoodie. However, it is important to note that not all efforts at printing on t-shirts are equal. Depending on the type of fabric used, the ink’s lifespan will vary.

    Faded uniforms will not instill a sense of trust into potential customers, but unfortunately, if the correct fabric is not used in the printing process, then the ink will not take. Typically, most t-shirt printers use shirts that contain synthetic fabrics. These fabrics are not as effective as cotton at absorbing ink. This results from the material’s lack of pores. Cotton is an extremely porous material, and as a result, it is able to thoroughly absorb ink.

    Regardless of the reason for your need for printing on t-shirts, it is important to get the best deal possible. Excessive uniform costs can have a profound impact on a company’s profit margin. Luckily, personalized clothes are an economical way of creating a professional look for your team. Usually, t-shirt printers will offer a bulk discount, and this is another way that businesses can drive down their uniform costs.

    Repeated studies have shown that professional looking uniforms can dramatically improve the public’s perceptions of your company, and there has also been research that suggests it can have a positive impact on workplace morale. Whether you are ordering zipper hoodies with team logos or professional looking polos with your company’s logo, a t-shirt printer will be able to provide the clothes you need. For those needing a large number of custom t-shirts, these printers will typically offer heavy discounts for bulk orders. By utilizing economical uniform options, it is possible for businesses to create a professional look without sacrificing their profit margins.

    Tips on Planning a Great Bachelorette Party

    No comments yet

    There’s a little bit of etiquette involved in planning a bachelorette party. Typically, the tradition is for the maid of honor and the bridesmaids to throw the bride a bachelorette party. Nothing is written in stone, but it is pretty customary for all the bridesmaids to chip in on the night of fun. The bulk of the responsibility usually rests on the maid of honor’s shoulders, but often times there is a born party planner in the group and it can often be better for everyone to let that person take the lead.

    When it comes to budgeting, I recommend setting a limit that is comfortable and reasonable for all the brides maids and then collect the money up front. This enables you to plan within your budget right from the start and eliminate hard feelings that will put a damper on the fun evening

    Another thing that you will really want to take into consideration is remembering who the night is really for. This means thinking about what the bride will enjoy. Is the bride the mild or wild? This will help determine what bachelorette gifts, games, apparel and decor will be right.

    Once you’ve got a theme, It’s a good idea to start planning ahead. I know this sounds silly, but it’s amazing how quickly time slips away. Believe me, you don’t want to find yourself empty handed when the big night comes around. You’re going to want to start shopping a few weeks out and ordering any gifts a minimum of two weeks prior to when you need them. Most bachelorette gifts are ordered online nowadays. The internet has certainly made it easy to get great gifts at reasonable prices. You will want to take shipping into consideration when making your purchase. Ground shipping is often going to give you the best rate, but again, planning ahead is going to be a big help with this.

    As with many things, the internet is a great place to get started with not only shopping but planning as well. Bachelorette parties have become big business, so just type in “bachelorette party” or bachelorette party ideas” into Google and the first page results should give you plenty of information to kick start your brainstorming.

    Personalized or custom gifts have become very popular over the past few years. This is another area that online shopping has really made getting great personalized gifts like custom t-shirts at a fairly cheap price. Custom bridal t-shirts have proven to be a big hit for helping the bride stand out or even keeping the party members from getting lost after a few drinks. With you can make personalized gifts for bridal parties that are sexy or funny. We have everything from custom bachelorette party t-shirts that you can personalize or choose from to items like custom panties that you can make a little more intimate for later.  Whatever you decide – your bridal party will look great. Check out our Top 12 bachelorette party t-shirt ideas to get you started.

    Here is a quick checklist to help get you prepared when planning a Bachelorette Party:

    1. Pick a date and send out invitations ASAP. Timing is everything.
    2. Collect the money from the bridesmaids. Do this on the front side.
    3. Pick your party’s flavor; mild, hot or extra spicy!
    4. Leave enough time! Order your gifts and accessories with enough time to spare.
    5. Are you going to need an ice breaker? If so, here are some game ideas designed to get the party warmed up.

    • A scavenger hunt
    • How well do you know the bachelorette?
    • Bride and Groom Trivia
    • Cocktails, perhaps?

    6. If you’re going out, be prepared and take a little extra cash, because coming up short sucks, and you don’t want to be that girl.

    Lastly, enjoy your time together. You are the bridal party, the bride’s closest friends and family. Have fun!

    Connecting With Customers Using Branded T-shirts And Clothing

    No comments yet

    Custom t-shirts and apparel make fun personalized gifts, but they aren’t merely a novelty item. For a small business, they can be used as a cost effective and powerful branding tool. Many custom t-shirt companies have expanded the line of merchandise available for personalization and custom design. Not only do they offer various types of shirts for men, women and children, they also offer bags, hats, buttons and many more items that weren’t previously available. Savvy business owners can use this to promote their brand and get a competitive edge in their market. Here are three specific ways in which custom apparel can help small businesses make a big impact.


    At some point in time, most businesses make a public appearance. Whether you get involved in charity work or enroll in a weekend seminar, having company t-shirts printed shows that you function as a professional team, and shows others that you take pride in your business.


    If you have a brick and mortar retail location, it is important that your employees stand out. Having a dress code is okay, but having a uniform is better. Imagine you are in Starbucks grabbing a morning coffee. No matter what location you frequent, the baristas always wear green aprons screen printed with the company logo. It creates a cohesive experience that goes hand-in-hand with their brand. So if you are a small coffee shop, why not design aprons or shirts that represent your brand. It might not seem like a big change, but it will make your customer’s experience more memorable.

    Even if you don’t have a location, your company can still benefit from custom t-shirts or apparel. For example, if you offer a delivery service, you can have your employees wear custom hats or carry messenger bags emblazoned with your logo. Not only will they look great, but it also creates buyer confidence. If you saw a man in a brown t-shirt and brown shorts carrying a package to your front door, you would immediately assume it was a UPS delivery. Your company can have the same immediate recognition with the right custom apparel and accessories.


    Everybody enjoys getting something for free. As a business owner, you can take advantage of this by giving away customized merchandise to promote your business. If you own a restaurant, you could give away t-shirts or buttons to patrons who come on their birthday. If you own a pet store or are a veterinarian, you could customize bandanas to give out to dog and cat owners.

    There are so many possibilities for business promotion with custom t-shirts and apparel. Using online custom t-shirt design sites like has never been easier, and many offer quick turn around for those last minute projects. From employee apparel to promotional give-aways, using these services is a surefire way to create a lasting impact on customers and keep them coming back to your business.
