We've already looked at the ways that custom designed team apparel can be used by your team members in a variety of ways in a previous blog. Here, we want to see how your team can use professional screen printing and custom embroidery services to broaden the definition of "team apparel" and benefit as a result.
Here are some additional creative ways to get customized teamwear working for your team, your fans, and your school!
Get The Fans Involved With Snazzy Team Apparel!
It's a mistake to limit team themed wearables to strictly team members only. Send players home to sign up family and friends for custom team apparel orders, advertise the same through school based media, and get some people out knocking on doors too.
You can accomplish several things with this kind of a plan. First, you outfit your fans with snazzy, fully branded teamwear they can wear in the stands. That encourages them to get involved, while their very own T shirts remind them to show up for the next game!
Second, it means you gain an extra stream of income through sales of customized T shirts, sweaters, hoodies, hats, water bottles, and a host of other possible sport-related products. It's a fundraising method as well as a team spirit booster all at the same time.
Create More Variegated Team Apparel
Let's face it, your fans are all different and have different tastes and clothing preferences. As for the team itself, they need to be more streamlined, wearing the exact same thing to bespeak team unity. But that unity can include more variety when it comes to non-team members donning your team's apparel.
Create several different basic designs, perhaps featuring your team logo in a new, visually arresting way, reversing team colors for fans who make it to away games, or presenting a screen printed photo of the whole team in full gear. If you've won championships in the past, be sure to print up limited edition commemorative apparel to honor your team's achievement!
Branch Out To Non-clothing Items
Don't be satisfied with only producing and selling to your loyal fans strictly "clothing." Things you can wear but you don't normally call "clothes" can also be screen printed or custom embroidered and can also count as apparel.
Consider having a professional team apparel company make for you custom team-branded sunglasses, glasses and contacts cases, bracelets, lanyards, flags, hold-up signs, water bottles and water bottle insulating cases, smartphone cases, backpacks, duffel bags, and more. There are few limits besides your own creativity.
Anything you can put on or carry that people might want to bring to your games is a good candidate for being printed with team logos, colors, name, and mascot.
