Getting Attention With Controversial T-Shirts May Be Effective, But Is It a Good Idea?
One of the best ways to raise visibility for any given issue is by using controversial t-shirts. Sometimes this is unintentional as a store is caught selling a shirt with an image or a message that is insensitive and there is an outcry to have it removed. A more common instance is for an artist or group to intentionally create a shirt that is offensive to gain exposure by utilizing that age old adage “any exposure is good exposure”.
Well, that’s not always the case — just ask the owner’s of Solid Gold Bomb, who recently closed their doors due to a tasteless tee campaign. You can read the full article about them here at CNNMoney.
Shirts are a particularly effective way to promote a message since they are easily seen in public and people can wear them to any number of busy areas. They can also attract extra attention with their actions to make sure the message on the shirt gets as much visibility as possible. T-shirts are particularly popular as away of making a social statement as they are easy to make; especially with online t-shirt creating tools like the one here at www.funkytshack.com — consequently making controversial t-shirts much more prevalent. The t-shirt is the ultimate in quick and inexpensive social marketing.
For anyone wanting to make a custom t-shirt on their own there are a variety of materials available in almost any store or online that can be used to create a single shirt with a specific message. Those who want to start a trend can have a local printer make a limited run of controversial t-shirts that do not cost much. If people are willing to pay for the shirt and support the message, then this becomes an especially attractive way to get a message to a community. This is an effective strategy for a community group or local organization that wants to raise awareness of an issue. It is even a popular way to raise funds to support a cause.
Printing t-shirts to sell as keepsakes or souvenirs has excellent potential to help bring in donations. It will also raise awareness as a wider network of people will be exposed to the message, but you walk a fine line when piggy backing off of a controversial message. It may gain you great exposure, but often times with negative repercussions for the business associated with the message like Nike’s “gold digging” shirt shown in this post. Any time a company gets in the news for pulling an insensitive product from its shelves, there is always an increase in the number of people making their own controversial t-shirts. Just be careful that the message doesn’t diminish business.

It is no secret that printing your business logo on polo shirts is an excellent way of making your employees look more professional. However, while this may seem like common sense, numerous studies have validated this point. According to one government study, customers’ perceptions of a business experienced a dramatic increase in favorability ratings when employees are seen wearing professional looking uniforms. 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, www.funkytshack.com 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.

Think about the many holidays throughout the year, from the countdown clock for New Years Day, hearts for Valentine’s Day, Irish shamrocks, sparkling flags or Born Free shirts for the Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day.

Many Brides to be come to FunkyTshack.com for their personalized Bachelorette party digs and we love all of the creative ideas we see come through here. We print personalized messages on just about everything under the sun, well when it comes to apparel and accessories at least. Recently, we had one ambitious Bachelorette party planner come to us for custom printed tank tops for their bachelorette event, which we were happy to assist with. This party planner was also helping with the ceremony and reception set up and gave us some information about some really cool things that we don’t personalize.
Typically, we’re not in the business of promoting other businesses, but we are in the business of personalized items and these wedding gifts were really pretty cool. We liked the fact that these items could be used a more serious and elegant addition to the lighter and perhaps more humorous items you may find or create here on FunkyTshack.
So, what is it already? Custom engraved crystal wedding gifts on crystal items designed by world renown crystal companies Swarovski and Waterford — BAMMM!! Just blew your mind, right? Well, maybe I didn’t blow your mind, but at the very least it is pretty cool.
When people want custom printed apparel, they come to FunkyT, because that’s what we do, but when people are looking for personalized crystal toasting flutes, cake toppers, serve ware and things of that nature, where do they go? They go to the Irish Crystal Co., because who better to work with fine Irish crystal, than the Irish Crystal Co.?
Personalized wedding gifts are nothing new to us, but the Irish Crystal Co. has combined their mastery of crystal and glass engraving with some of the most sought after collectible crystal gifts including toasting flutes and cake servers by world renown brands Waterford and Swarovski Crystal. People seek out and cherish both Waterford and Swarovski fine crystal — combining these popular crystal items with elegantly engraved and personalized messages for weddings and receptions has allowed Irish Crystal Co. to carve out a new niche within the personalized gift market, and we’re happy to say it’s not ours.
The wedding industry is big business, constantly keeping up to date with the latest and greatest trends, styles, and accessories — not an easy feat when the customer base is full of discerning brides. One thing that personalized crystal wedding gifts offer that make them unique is that the customized accessories are used during wedding events and then become cherished keepsakes for many years to come. Crystal, unlike personalized napkins and t-shirts, are show pieces. I’m sure some of our designers would say that their t-shirt designs are show pieces and even cherished keepsakes, but they surely aren’t home accents. Crystal can work as a gift, an accessory and can even become elegant home decor, that inspires conversation and reminds us of things that are far more important, like our ties to one another.
One of the most popular crystal engraved items for wedding events are the engraved crystal champagne toasting flutes. Irish Crystal Co. can engrave on a variety of different Waterford Crystal toasting flutes. Personalized crystal toasting flutes come in pairs, making them a perfect item for personalized bride and groom keepsakes. Custom engraved glasses make quite the statement whether you are raising a toast on your wedding day, first anniversary, or fiftieth.
It’s quite surprising what items, usually taken for granted, can be transformed into a priceless reminder and cherished gift. Take for example the engraved Lismore cake server by Waterford. Typically, cake servers are discarded or stored away after use, but a personalized cake server by Waterford — well, that is something perfect in design and function, making it a worthy serving piece for display. Gone are the days of the classic bride and groom cake toppers, replaced by truly classic and collectible crystal figurines by Swarovski. It’s long been tradition to save the top layer of cake, but soon we may have an entirely new tradition of saving collectible crystal cake toppers to commemorate the special day.
So, for people seeking a completely custom and personalized wedding event, start with FunkyTshack.com for your personalized bachelorette party t-shirts and apparel and then check out IrishCrystalReno.com for elegant crystal accents ranging from Swarovski crystal figurine cake toppers to Waterford engraved toasting flutes.
