How To Decide if Custom Embroidery is Right for You

Custom embroidery has the power to transform an ordinary garment into something unique – but how do you know it’s the right choice for you? With so many other options for customization, it might be hard to decide. To help make your decision easier, we’ve composed this mini check list of instances when custom embroidery is best.

  • What type of garments are your looking to embroider? Garments like polo shirts, button downs, sweatshirts, jackets, and even pants are perfect candidates for custom embroidery. Regular cotton t-shirts are not often embroidered because the fabric is so light that the stitching would weigh them down.
  • Are you looking to customize a small area like a pocket? When customizing areas such as jacket pockets or pockets on bags, embroidery allows for the highest quality customization.
  • Do you want to customize hats? The best way to customize any type of hat, whether it’s a baseball cap or a beanie, is to embroider them. It’s long lasting and provides a high quality, polished look.
  • Are your custom garments for work purposes? Embroidery allows for a more finished look. It works best with garments such as polo shirts and button downs, and is a great way to look professional while having fun and being comfortable.
  • How many colors are in your logo/preferred text? By embroidering your garments, you give yourself the option of having anywhere form one to 16 different colors in your logo. Other methods of customization such as screen printing are limited to only 5 colors.

If you found yourself nodding yes to any of the above, embroidery is the best method of customization for your garments. By choosing embroidery, you opt for a high quality, long lasting look that is both creative and professional.… Continue reading

Three Steps to a Seamless and Successful Spirit Wear Fundraiser

Spirit wear is one of the most enjoyable ways to show your school pride, no matter what age. With the fall season in full bloom, the time for spirit wear fundraisers is upon us. Before you get started organizing your school’s or your team’s fundraiser, follow these three key steps to making your spirit wear fundraiser easy, stress free, and – most importantly – successful.

amity-dance-team-spirit-wear-fundraiser1. Choose your logo and garments first. Choosing what logo you want to put on which garments is the single most important step to making your spirit wear fundraiser successful. The logo is the easiest to choose, as schools already have mascots and preferred fonts. Choosing garments is the next important decision, and often the most difficult decision when planning a spirit wear fundraiser. Many schools and teams think that by offering the widest variety of garments, their fundraiser will be the most successful. However, the opposite is true. By offering only a few select items – sweatshirts, shirts, and sweat pants, for example – your fundraiser will not only become easy to manage, but highly successful because people can quickly choose what they want and turn in their order forms quickly.

2. Send out your order forms. Once you’ve decided on your garments and logos, print out your order forms. Give students and parents at least a month to decide on what garments they wish to purchase.

3. Place your orders. Wait a week after their deadline, as there are bound to be a handful of late orders, and then place your official order. This will give parents, students, and yourselves enough time without feeling overwhelmed during your spirit wear fundraiser. By waiting an extra week after the deadline, you have a higher possibility of only needing to place one large order.
