When working with your marketing materials and deciding between digital and offset printing, among a host of other choices, it pays to sit back and analyze your needs.
Perhaps you own a retail apparel shop and want to showcase a few of your own humorous t-shirt designs. There are many screen printers in London that can help you bring these designs to the racks of your store. Your patrons will love your humor; you will love the incoming profits!For example, maybe your band has a showcase at a local pub. Ask a friend to setup a table and share Calendards Printing t-shirts about your band. This is a great way to start merchandising and creating a buzz about your music! Many groups taking part in marathons and charity events like to have personalized and customised t shirts.
When you feel swamped with all the specifications you need to make for your marketing materials, take a short pause and answer the following questions.
As far as motifs go, you’ll probably want to avoid them. Some people may try to convince you to print a motif next your name that ‘says’ something about you. Sometimes this can look okay, but in general it dilutes the professionalism of your personalized stationery, and almost looks comical.
Remember when screen prints and iron-ons used to fade and peel? Or if you ordered a shirt, there were a lot of limitations on size, color and location of the print? Sometimes you even had to let a company’s artist come up with the design. If you did have your own logo or picture, you would have to go to great lengths to get it put on the shirts and it still may not look exactly like you wanted. Today, you can simply make your design, e-mail it to the screen print company, and expect that your exact design, color and specifications will be what ends up on the custom t-shirt.
Step One. Trace your artwork that says “I Love JB” on a tracing paper. You can make it as one phrase of per letter. Pin the cut outline on the fabric and cut it. If you don’t want to use pins, just use a water soluble marker. Choose the color of the fabric that would be very visible in your cheap promotional t-shirt.
You may also consider using a monogram instead of your full name. If you choose to do this, do not include ‘from the desk of’ on your notecard. The only issue with the monogram is that it is not easily recognizable as yours, whereas there’s no guessing if you choose to print your name.
Key Tags- Key tags look good on your car keys especially when customized. Exhibit your support for your favorite basketball team by utilizing custom shaped key tags with their logo on it.
