Customised Products for Your Non-Profit Organisation

Most people think of promotional products as marketing tools for businesses to hand out at trade shows or to use as giveaways to customers. But it should also be known that the same products that help to brand businesses can also serve non-profit organizations in a similar fashion.

For non-profits, customized apparel and products can be multi-tasking wonders, especially at fundraising events. When your organisation hosts an event, your staff can be outfitted in customised t-shirts, polo shirts or hats. Non-profit employees work hard and appreciate the gift of customised apparel that reinforces their passion for the cause. In addition, customised shirts and hats display professionalism while still being fashionable and comfortable. Your staff members will also continue to wear these items on their off time, spreading word of your cause and branding your organisation.

Custom clothing is also a great gift for volunteers. It shows your appreciation for their efforts and is a great way for them to proudly display their support of your mission. With so many clothing options to choose from, you can tailor the items to suit the specific needs of you volunteers. Fixing a structure outside in the cold? Provide them with windbreakers or plush hoodies. Spending the afternoon landscaping in an underserved community? Hand over some water bottles or visors for sun protection. Other useful items at events are tote bags, lanyards and rain gear all bearing the organisation’s logo. These thoughtful gifts will not go unnoticed and will increase recognition of your work with every use.

Hot Branding Tips for Winter – Jackets

Helping you keep warm

With news headlines reading “No respite from gloomy weather” or “First snow, now black ice hits south” we know that winter is well on its way, or in some places around the country it has very much already arrived! In Turangi (just south of Taupo) the other day they woke up to a chilli -5C, which was the coldest temperature in the country. Even Auckland and Christchurch only had one degree difference!

EmbroidMe: Hot branding tips for winter - Jackets

You may get condensation on the windows at home and have the windscreen frozen-over on your car, or if not, we’ve all experienced the rush of bitterly cold air when you go and open a door to outside! Driving to work can also start out cold as you wait [patiently?] for the heating to work. On days like this motivation to leave the house can quickly fade.

When it comes to winter fashion many people would tell you that the trick to keeping warm is by wearing layers, but that can cause an issue for your companies branding. Business uniforms provide excellent benefits for your business (read our previous post), but in winter the company logos and brands frequently get hidden behind non-branded jackets. Branded jackets give credibility to staff in the same way a branded shirt does, and including a branded jacket in your uniform dress-code means staff and team members will take the brand with them wherever they go.

About.com says that branding is your identity in the marketplace and that it’s important to realise that how you package your brand is an integral part of your business. Just by looking out into the world today, it’s easy to see why brands are more important than at any time in the past 100 years.

A good brand confirms credibility, and reassures customers that the plumber, builder, or any type of tradesman or delivery person that turns up to their house is actually from the company they called. But it’s not limited to that. Sports teams and coaches are easily seen, professionals are identifiable in meetings, event staff and road-workers are visible, salesmen gain credibility, and ultimately everyone is kept warm. Don’t only provide your staff or team with a uniform to promote your brand, invest in jackets to ensure that your brand isn’t hidden.

“Therefore it makes sense to understand that branding is not about getting your target market to choose you over the competition, but it is about getting your prospects to see you as the only one that provides a solution to their problem.”

EmbroidMe: Hot Branding Tips for Winter - Jackets

Hoodies and Sweats explained by Aurora

hoodieAt EmbroidMe we work with many clothing, apparel and promotional product suppliers. This post is dedicated to our Hoodies Supplier Aurora. Aurora – the hoodies and sweatshirt specialists! – With sizes from kids 2 yrs up to 7 XL, different weights, different fits, and multitudes of colour options, a very comprehensive range is available. Below are a few notes to help you choose which garment is best suited for you: hoodies

Hoodies Weight & Quality

Aurora have four ranges:

  1. Lightweight: 200-220gsm
  2. aurora280: Mid weight 280gsm
  3. aurora360: Heavy weight 360gsm
  4. premium400: Super heavy weight 400gsm

When comparing brands, it is possible for a lighter weight fabric to feel thicker than a heavier one, due to construction and brushing differences. The weight doesn’t necessarily reflect the quality; it is possible to get poor quality heavy weight hoodies, and likewise good quality lighter weight hoodies. Aurora garments feature high quality yarns to ensure optimum long term performance.

Hoodies Fabric blends:

Typically hoodies are made using a cotton/polyester mix. The different blends each have advantages:

  • Higher polyester content fabrics such as the aurora280 range are usually more colourfast, less prone to shrinkage, and longer lasting
  • Higher cotton content fabrics such as the aurora360 and aurora400 ranges usually pill less, and screenprint better.

Aurora360 and aurora400 cotton rich styles utilize high grade fibres, dyes and mill processes to produce fabrics rivaling poly/cotton for colour, shape and shrinkage control, while providing an easier fabric to print on.

Hoodie Sizing and fit:

Some hoodies are designed to be more fitted than others, hence an XL in one style may have a different fit to an XL in another style. Aurora ‘Classic fit’ is generous but not baggy, while Aurora ‘Fashion fit’ features closer fitting body and sleeves. Different fabrics can affect the fit; styles featuring ‘stretch’ fabrics are designed to fit closer than non-stretch styles. Aurora womens styles are sized 8, 10, 12 etc. As different sizing are used by different countries and manufacturers, it is often difficult to compare directly. An Aurora womens 8 usually equates to a womens XS (US sizing), 10=S, 12=M and so on. ALWAYS use sizing samples from the correct range. Source: auroraclothing

T shirt Printing – Screen Printing vs Digital Printing by EmbroidMe

EmbroidMe HamiltonT shirt Printing with Screen-Printing

When most of us think of t shirts printing we think of traditional screen-printed t shirts. The process of screen-printing is the oldest and most proven of the four common methods of garment imprinting, it is also the most labour intensive. Screen-printing lends itself well to large run orders as well as to simple logo work. The more colours and the smaller the order the less that traditional screen-printing makes sense. Unlike the other three processes discussed here, with screen-printing once the artwork is done on the computer: the work really begins.

A typical 4 color screen-print for a t shirts printing job can take 2 hours from the time the artwork is done on the computer until the first garment is printed. Once the job is set up, though, t shirts printing can be produced at a very high rate. Orders of 12-24 shirts are definitely not practical with a screen-printing set up and many screen-printers won’t take an order for less than 50-100 garments.

Once everything is setup a traditionally screen-printed garment may only have 10-50 cents worth of ink on it, however, the typical screen-print job costs $10-30 per color to set up. Because screen-print inks can be opaque, screen-printing lends itself to white, light and dark garments (though printing on darks does require a bit more skill than lights and whites).

Other issues of concern with screen-printing are workspace and disposal of waste products as well as a moderate learning curve. Overall, if high volume production is your main objective, screen-printing is a good route to explore. Learn more about SWF East’s screen-printing solutions.

Digital Printing Transfers are Ideal for:

  • Promotional Wear

Due to their rapid turnaround and fantastic high-resolution finish and vibrancy, digital transfers are our most popular choice for promotional campaigns.

  • Uniforms

For smaller businesses with full-colour logos, you can’t go past a digital printing transfer. Where embroidery & screen printing aren’t possible (or cost effective) for your chosen application or order quantity, digital printing transfers are the perfect substitute! With the added option of printing small runs of 1+ units as you require them.

  • Custom T-Shirts & More

With the ability to recreate photographic images in high-resolution (and with no minimum orders) digital transfers remain a popular choice for our steady stream of local artisans and their one-off t-shirt designs.

  • Garments for Printing:

Digital printing can be used for an extensive range of clothing products from tees, polos, hoodies to hats and flags etc suited for all budgets.
