When promoting your business by having your staff wear branded clothing or by giving your clients or members, promotional gifts etc, take some time to decide what outcome it is that you wish to achieve.
Things to consider is the budget that you wish to allocate to the promotion of your organisation using these methods, the time frame that you have to organise products for your event or promotion.
Clothing can now be screen printed, embroidered or sublimated. Each of these methods has a cost involved and a time it takes to either decorate or manufacture. Each method has its own place in the industry and will be suitable or not suitable for your requirements. For instance a major promotion where a company is handing out many many hundreds of tee shirts would be best catered for by screen printing as the costs will be kept quite low, where as providing polo shirts with many sponsors logos attached would now see sublimation as the decoration of choice.
As a rule embroidery and screen printing will take approximately 2 weeks from artwork approval. Sublimated products will take anything from 4- 8 weeks as the garment is individually designed and manufactured for purpose.
When considering promotional gifts you must also consider pricing, relevance to your requirements and decorating time. It is a very stressful process when a client rings asking for products three days out from an event!!!! Not only for the promotions company but also for the organiser. Like anything when planning your promotion give yourself plenty of time and ensure that you not only choose the right products but have the products there in time for your event or promotion.
