Advertise your Brand with Promotional Embroidered or Screen Printed Polo Shirts
Polo shirts are knit t-shaped shirts. The long or short sleeves are usually finished with a ribbed knit cuff. Two or three buttons decorate the front placket and some styles may include an optional pocket. The finishing touch of a promotional polo shirt is the collar which may be a contrasting colour. Increase your brand awareness with custom designed promotional products. One of the best investments in promotional advertising is wearable apparel from Red Fish Marketing. Embroidered and screen printed corporate sports shirts are an effective way to build your brand name. There are several factors that must be considered before choosing the company polo shirt that will best represent your business.
The natural choice is 100% cotton knits. People with sensitive skin prefer a cotton polo shirt because it is breathable and does not trap moisture against the skin. Environmentalists love cotton due to the fact it is naturally biodegradable when it has outlived its usefulness. Cotton is a great fabric for warm or cold climates. The natural absorbency of cotton can create a problem with some stain removals. Cotton polo shirts are also prone to wrinkling.
- Poly cotton blends
Combining polyester or other man made fibres with cotton allows your company polo shirt to be more forgiving in active situations. Blending other man made fibres with cotton reduce the wrinkle factor and keep the shirt from stretching out of shape. Be aware of the different percentages of poly blends. The less cotton in the blend will result in less absorbency. This will create an accumulation of moisture between the shirt and skin, causing discomfort, odours and possible bacteria growth.
- Special moisture-wicking fabrics
If you are considering promotional apparel for golfing or outdoor activities you must compare the features of special fabrics designed to prevent saturation from sweat or weather conditions. Fabrics are chemically treated to wick away moisture as soon as it occurs. Verify that the treatment used for your promotional shirts has been performed on the yarn fibres individually, such as with Cool Dry and Clime-Dri fabrics. These polo shirts will retain their moisture wicking characteristics longer than fabric that has been treated after weaving or knitting. Promotional polo shirts distributed at golf outings will be worn more frequently if they are constructed from special moisture resistant material. It is true that these fabrics will cost more than other material choices, but it is the best choice if image and quality are important to your business.
Two ways to print your message on promotional corporate polo shirts
- Screen Printing
The process of silk screening your corporate and sports shirts is an economical choice if you are considering purchasing a large quantity of promotional polo shirts. A separate screen is required for every colour so keep this in mind when planning your advertising allowance. Some fabrics are not acceptable for the silk screening process. Check the manufacturers label for fabric content. Your message will last for years if the ink is properly cured on to a compatible fabric. Branded and screen printed polo shirts are a cost-effective way to promote your business.
The classier approach to applying your custom logo to your branded polo shirts is with a needle and thread. Embroidered promotional polo shirts are a bit more expensive, but the image they portray is worth the extra cost. The embroidered design on a quality shirt usually outlasts the garment. You can design your own embroidered company polo shirt with the logo design tool available from Red Fish Marketing.

It takes a strong quality fabric to withstand the use of a child. Playing outdoors exposes their clothing to abuse and unidentifiable stains. Choose high quality stain resistant fabrics for your company polo t-shirts for children. Many schools have retired the cotton oxford button down shirts with knit polo shirts as part of the school uniform. If your company is considering the distribution of promotional polo shirts to children, be sure your company message is suitable for young viewers.
