Shirts Can Be a Great Asset in Your Arsenal of Promotional Products

Choosing the right shirt to use as one of your promotional products can be overwhelming. The material of the shirt, design, fit, and cost all play a part in how successful this item will be. You are investing money into this, and you will want to know you’ll be getting a good return on it.

The overall quality of a shirt is very important. This is the first thing people will notice, and it will definitely reflect on your business. Sloppy, ill-fitting clothing will cause a poor first impression. Make sure the fit is right for those who will be wearing it. You also want the shirt to feel comfortable as well as be durable enough to survive many washings. The goal is to have a garment people will wear time and again which will give your company further exposure.

There are a few basic questions you can ask yourself to help narrow down your options.

• What is the shirt worn for?
• How often will they wear it?
• What type of person is wearing it?

If a shirt will be used while people are at work, it needs to be durable with reliable construction. If it is just for one specific day’s event, this won’t be as important a consideration. On the other hand, when you expect those wearing it to use it on a daily basis, invest in the best quality you can afford.

Make sure the garment you select can handle the type of decoration you are thinking of. Cotton works nicely for DTG while polyesters are best for sublimation. Both can be used for screen printing. Keep in mind your budget, and start with the most affordable shirt before considering upgraded options.
