How to buy Custom Apparel

So you have a made the decision to purchase custom apparel for your business/ event but you’re not sure where to start.  Don’t worry you’re not alone.  Ordering custom apparel can be a daunting task especially if it’s your first time placing an apparel order.  

We have put together a small starter list to help you understand the different options available to you and a little more information on how custom decorated apparel is purchased.

Before you place your apparel order you should be asking yourself the following questions.  

What type of apparel are you looking for?

  • Is the apparel for an event and a 1 time use?
  • Are you looking for a polo, t-shirt, hoodie, jacket, long sleeve shirt?
  • Do you have a preferred decoration?
  • How many printed locations?
  • What time of year is it for?  Indoor or outdoor use?
  • What is the quantity needed?
  • What is the budget?
  • What is the timeline?

Artwork for Apparel
Depending on your artwork, there may be a best decoration option available.  Determining the best decoration for your artwork is key not only for quality but also for pricing. 

EG. Some logos may have too much detail for embroidery, some logos have a gradient and are better for transfers, other logos are a 1 colour which is best for screen printing.   

Apparel Decoration
Whether you print 1 colour print on a cotton t-shirt or you print a full colour logo on a polyester jacket your artwork may work better with a specific decoration method based upon the artwork or garment you’ve chosen.  
Each decoration method works best with specific types of fabric and colours. 

The most popular apparel decoration methods are Heat Transfers, Embroidery, Screen Print, Direct to Garment, Deboss, Applique, HXD, inFusion, and PVC Emblems.

Budget
It’s always best to try an establish your apparel budget.  If your budget is $10 per shirt for 150 shirts, $65 per polo for 15 polos or you have $40 to order one shirt it’s a great idea to have a number in mind.  It will help your apparel partner determine your best options up front without creating a lot of unnecessary work and wasted time.

Timeline
In a perfect world you could place your order for custom apparel today and have it delivered tomorrow.  Unfortunately that is not the case.  It’s always best to leave yourself 3 weeks to make everything run smooth.

A normal apparel order takes 24-72 hours for a proof, 5-7 days production time and 1-3 days shipping.  This example does not include a backordered item or shipping errors.

Apparel Samples
If you have enough time or you are using 2 or more decoration options it’s always a good idea to get a pre-production sample.  Blank or printed samples usually come with a fee.  Talk to your apparel partner.

Rush Order Apparel
Not always the best option to leave your apparel to the last minute but thanks to direct to garment printing t-shirts, polos, and hoodies are available with-in 48-72 hours.

Do the products or services you’re providing your customers connect with them on an emotional level?

Do the products or services you’re providing your customers connect with them on an emotional level?  A great example of this would be a professional in the fitness industry offering dietary or exercise programs for example.

The goal is leave such an impression on the client that when they leave each appointment they’ll continue the motivation and program until the next appointment.  The reality is most of us need a little push from time to time and giving your client a little something to remind them a) why they are doing what their doing or b) you want to make sure they are always thinking about you.

A great way to keep your customers focussed on your business, products or services is giving them a branded promotional item they can wear or use on a daily basis.  A great product for this may be a wristband, a hat or a keychain.

Every company has different marketing goals for their products or services and identifying that “hot button” for your customers is essential to reaching your marketing goals.  Building strong relationships is a great goal but in the end we are all in business to make money.  Try to position yourself where others are not and do your best to ensure you’re touching your customers as often as possible.

We have a huge selection (300,000+) promotional solutions that will fit almost any marketing strategy or customer mix.  Visit our Promo eStore and choose from our huge selection of coffee mugs, pens, hats, clothing, bags, sporting goods, safety kits, usb drives, lanyards, bracelets, wristbands and more.Anything Printing Promotional ProductsStand out in the crowd with our quality promotional solutions!  Contact us for more information sales@anythingprinting.ca.
