It may be cold now, but in a few short months Spring will bring its warmth. The season of outdoor events will begin on the Emerald Coast. Every weekend will be filled with festivals, 5K races, and other fun outdoor events.
Anyone attending an event wants a t-shirt commemorating that event, right? Attendees have come to expect it. If it’s a race, a custom race shirt is typically included with registration. However, for festivals, guests are willing to shell out big bucks if the event shirts have a great design.
Shirt Style Is Important
We love helping our customers not only with great design, but also with choosing the perfect shirt to print your design. You see, a comfortable and stylish shirt is very important if you want them to continue to be wear the shirt throughout the year. By spending a few extra bucks on a better quality shirt, you are investing in a walking billboard that will promote your event for the next year.
Whether you want a brand name shirt, or an off-brand with similar qualities of the expensive brand names, we can get them for you.
What You Need To Know
In order for us to guide you to the right type of t-shirt and the right design, we need the following information from you.
- Who’s Attending? – In order to get the right shirts, we need to know the type of crowd you expect. For example, if the event was a high school senior class event, the shirt style should be completely different than if it was a snowbird event with mostly senior citizens. Younger, hip styles don’t go over well with older generations, and the sizes also don’t always translate. A medium juniors style shirt isn’t the same as a unisex medium t-shirt. We know our fabrics and we know the current styles. We are here to guide you through the process of selecting the perfect shirt for your audience. The type of audience also helps determine the shirt design.
- What’s Your budget? – This is often determined by whether you are giving away the shirts, including them with registration, or reselling them at your event. For giveaways, you may opt for the lower priced shirt options, however, if including them with a registration or reselling them, you can completely recoup the cost. This allows you to upgrade to a premium type of shirt so the recipients will love the shirt and wear it often. We can help you find the most appropriate shirt for your budget. If you need an elaborate design, you’ll have to also factor in design charges depending on the complexity.
- When Is The Event? – This may seem obvious, but we have to mention it. Some blank shirt styles take longer to receive them, which can delay the production time. Additionally, creative design takes time and can’t be rushed.
