Pier32 provides promotional clothing for corporations, organisations and educational establishments and our promotional t-shirts and other apparel are used extensively for product launches, marketing, advertising, campaigning and fundraising. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your own investment in promotional clothing...
Investment Or Cost
If your promotional garments are to generate income or funds then you should consider them as an investment. If your clothing is intended to raise awareness of a cause or campaign then they are a cost. Either way, you need to get the most from your expenditure and we're here to help you choose wisely. Don't be too shy to ask for advice - we've been doing this for many, many years and have been involved in everything from rock concerts and TV programmes through to political campaigning and charity fundraising.
Expressions become cliches for a reason and the saying that "less is more" definitely applies to promotional clothing. With careful design you can actually get great value this way as printing or embroidering fewer colours can save a few pence or more per garment, which obviously mounts up if your event requires 1,000 t-shirts for example. Our Artwork Manager has been producing designs and images for t-shirts for around 30 years and is here to help.
The t-shirt remains the promotional garment of choice because it is simple, affordable and easy to wear. We have dozens of different t-shirts though, so how do you choose? Some key factors to consider are how many times it is likely to be worn, will the wearer be involved in any physical activity and, if for a specific event, how warm or cold is it likely to be on the day? And, for something else to consider, the most popular alternatives to t-shirts are hoodies and polos. Again, we're here to advise, just call or email as we'd love to hear from you.
To summarise, promotional clothing is an excellent way to raise awareness of your product, brand or cause. Printed correctly, t-shirts will have a long promotional life with a large physical area for you to get your message across, becoming a walking billboard that works on your behalf.
