The image of a business is an essential element that should be safeguarded at all times. This image is portrayed in several ways, from the way employees dress, to their behaviors and several others. Some companies prefers to have custom made clothes for their staff, something unique and something that will represent the company. When it comes to dress code, the company can decide to have a formal dress code to be worn during office hours and on weekdays, and a casual wear like T-shirts to be worn on weekends or during fieldwork days. Additionally, casual t-shirts can also be used in other ways such as marketing tools when the company is running a promotion. In Charleston SC, companies such as Palmetto Blended has mastered the art of T-shirt printing.
Here is a guide that can help when designing custom made T-shirts for a business.
How are the custom made T-shirts going to be used? There are several designs for custom making T-shirts, all representing a certain use.
Another point to pay attention to is the material of the t-shirt. Factor in the type of printing to take place before coming up with the right fabric. This is because different fabrics are ideal for different methods of printing and embroidery. For instance, embroidering a logo or any wording on a t-shirt made of light fabric will not give the best results. Also consider the weather conditions of the location of the business or where the t-shirts will be worn most. A t-shirt made with a heavy fabric cannot be used in coastal or hot areas. For coastal areas, one can choose lightweight custom made t-shirts like the ones from Palmetto Blended who specialize in screen printing t-shirts.
Factor in the color of the t-shirt. What colors does the business use? Try to match the color of the t-shirts with the business colors so as to have some uniformity. The purpose of the customized t-shirt will also help in choosing the colors, e.g. if the garment is required to support a particular event that has its own color theme, then the printing can be adjusted to fit the theme of the day. Other determining factors when it comes to colors is the color of the logo. Having the same t-shirt color with the same color on the logo may not be a good idea. E.g., you cannot have a green logo and still use a green fabric for the t-shirt since the logo will not be clear and visible. Another determining factor is the wording to be printed on the t-shirt as well as the font of those wordings. To have a clear visible message on the t-shirt, choose a different color font for the wordings and the t-shirt.
Lastly, work with the people who will use the t-shirts, an in this case the employees of the company so as to have their views on what they would like to have.
