Are custom screen-printed t-shirts good promotional items?

Promotional products are an excellent way to promote your brand. Still, sometimes it’s difficult coming up with the right product to give away during a promotional period like a sale, grand opening, or trade show. If you’re considering custom screen-printed t-shirts as a promotional item, our team at Four Seasons Screen Printing can help you see why they’re a perfect promotional item.

They spread your brand through word-of-mouth.

Word-of-mouth is one of the most affordable and effective ways to spread brand awareness. While even your most loyal customers aren’t going to walk around constantly telling everyone they meet that you’re the best at what you do, they can passively promote your brand for you by wearing a t-shirt with your logo. One of the great things about giving away t-shirts is that it’s a one-time expense that continues to promote your brand for years. Even if they eventually donate it to a second-hand store, someone else will eventually buy the shirt and start wearing it again.

They’re useful.

Promotional t-shirts can be useful to you and those you give them to. Your team can wear some of the t-shirts to unify them during a special event and make them easy to identify. Additionally, people always love having extra t-shirts around the house that they can wear while running errands or hanging out around the house. Even if your promotional t-shirt turns into a grubby shirt, the wearer will be glad they have it.

They’re cost-effective.

The cost per unit of custom screen-printed t-shirts can be adjusted based on the type of shirt you print on and the size of the design. An order of low-cost shirts with a simple design isn’t likely to break the bank. You can make a large order without chewing up your entire budget for your promotion. You also won’t feel bad about giving them away to anybody willing to take them.

You can always make new ones.

Eventually, you’re going to run out of promotional t-shirts. Fortunately, you can always order more. Ordering more of the same shirts is easier than placing the original order because the fulfillment company still has your original order on file. Place an order for more shirts any time you run out or have another promotional event coming up.

Everybody loves a free t-shirt.

There’s a show from the 1990s where two characters always try to take over the world. In one episode, they succeeded in their plot as they lured the entire world’s population to a paper mache replica of Earth. Their lure? Free t-shirts. Their lone reason for using t-shirts was that everyone loves a free t-shirt, and it worked.

This still holds true today as you can hand a free t-shirt to just about any passerby at your storefront, table at a trade show, or a stand on the street, and they’ll take it. Getting shirts on customers' backs is far easier than handing out free food, drinks, or even pens. With enough free t-shirts, you can spread your brand across town in no time.
