Default Customized Company Shirts To Wear During Shows, Conferences, And Expos

Does anyone have experience with or know of a brand/company that sells professional shirts with company logos? I have found some shirts but they seem to be of a lower quality and do not fit well. I am looking for high quality, well fitting, long sleeve button-up, and in a red color. One example is the upper arms on the shirt I have seem like they were made for Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Default shirts

Hi Nick,

We've run into similar issues. We usually end up buying the shirt we like/want from a regular store then bringing it to a local print/embroidery shop. Depending on how many shirts you need, that may or may not work out and then of course, it's typically more expensive as well.

Can you buy online, in bulk from a traditional store like Eddie Bauer, Lands End, Haggar, etc. and have them shipped to a print shop?

Not sure if this is really all that helpful.

Best of luck!

There are lots of promotional product websites our there that will allow you to pick from a wide variety of shirts and then upload your logo and place your order. Here are a few options:

www.staplespromotionalproducts.com
www.branders.com
www.4imprint.com
www.customink.com

Good luck!

Default Here are three sites I've been pleased with

www.spreadshirt.com
www.cafepress.com
www.corporatecasuals.com

The last one has a variety of name-brand shirts and styles. Good Luck!

Default T-shirts we all make the same items, but...

Yes, all of the promo dealers sell the same items, try them all out because t-shirt pricing is all set on the manufacturer's price, meaning, we all get it for the same price, it's just the mark up your promo vendor does to get the sale. Some sell at different levels, so price it out and ASK FOR SAMPLES, we send them all the time just to make sure the people can touch and feel the items. Also, in the t-shirt business, how the pricing goes is white, then gray, then colored. It all depends on QTY and locations of imprint and colors of imprint. Hope this helps and good luck! Kellie
