T-shirts are everyone’s favorite piece of clothing. They’re comfortable, versatile, creative and easy care. Best of all, they don’t need any ironing. T shirts are also a good way of making a statement, with an endless choice of colors, graphics and text to catch attention. Not surprisingly, t shirts are also a favorite promotional item, with businesses, schools, and social events creating special designs for special occasions. Along with other related items like custom promotional tote bags and even promotional towels, they get your name and message out there.
Everybody loves t shirts
That’s what makes t shirts such a great platform for promotional messages, whether they’re about an institution, an event or a cause. T shirts are among the most popular items of clothing in the world. In the U.S., which can fairly claim to have invented them, 95% of people wear t shirts. And around 90% of them, or nine out of ten, own at least one favorite T-shirt that they would never consider throwing away.
Given the widespread popularity of t-shirts, it’s not surprising that the T-shirt industry in the U.S. is growing rapidly. In the five years from 2009 to 2014, it has grown by over 24.2%. The promotional products industry in the U.S. too is expanding, and has seen its revenues rise to $18.5 billion in 2011.
Design and comfort make Ts popular
Screen printing has added an extra dimension to t shirt design and made it easy to print just about any kind of design and message on promotional t shirts. T shirt printing services can also create a custom design just for your t shirt or custom promotional tote bags. Creating limited edition promotional t shirts is a good way to ensure their popularity.
Especially if it’s for an event, such as a music concert or sports even like a race, having the official t-shirt or custom promotional to tote bag establishes the user’s bragging rights without saying a word.
Comfort is at least as important as design when it comes to t shirts. Cotton is one of the most breathable and comfortable fabrics. This is why it is produced in eighty-five countries around the world. Fifty-five cotton-growing countries are also cotton exporters. The U.S. ranks second in the world in cotton production and is the largest exporter, shipping anywhere from 40 to 60% of the cotton produced to destinations abroad.
T shirts are mobile advertising
Mobile and free, that is. Most people are happy to wear promotional t shirts with logos and designs from businesses, organizations and causes that they support. The message goes with them wherever they go, giving you hours of free advertising that’s also free ranging.
When choosing colors and graphics, it is important that they catch people?s attention. They should also make people want to wear the shirt for days after the event at which it was bought. That means creating designs that are funny, interesting, or trendy. Shirts can be created around existing brands. For t-shirts commemorating events, they should be comfortable and durable, to last a long time after the event is over.
Promotional materials that draw upon the popularity of t-shirts can be very successful in meeting their goals, since the wearers are enthusiastic bearers of your message. Designs can be completely customized with regard to graphics, printing, colors, size, and more. Custom promotional tote bags and Ts are one of the best ways to let the world know about your business, organization, event or cause.
