Adding embroidery or custom graphics to t-shirts, hats, jackets, and other clothing items is a great way to brand your business, unify your sports team, portray information to your community, and much, much more. Although creating the design is an important part of creating custom clothing, you should also carefully think about the actual clothing you have us embroider or print on at Common Threads Embroidery and Apparel. Here are a few of our top tips for choosing apparel for your next custom clothing project:
• What purpose will the clothing serve? If the garment will only be worn once, you can go with a lower-quality item. If you want the recipient to wear it time and time again, like as an employee uniform, for example, you should go with a higher-quality item.
• What do wearers expect from the garment? If your wearers want comfort, you may want a product featuring tri-blends. If your wearer expects a fashion fit, you may want to go with a premium brand.
• Where will people wear the product? If you’re creating t-shirts for a softball team, for example, you might want to go with a clothing item that wicks moisture and helps control temperature.
• What is your brand identity? Whether your brand prefers more classic fits or has a fashion-forward vibe, take your brand identity into account when choosing custom clothing to have embroidered or printed on.
