Finding the Best Customised Clothing for Your Organization ~ Uniforms, Team, Corporate

Stocking your gift shop or boutique with customized clothing is a great way to increase profits, attract attention and boost sales. Customized or custom apparel make an excellent addition to your existing product line and can keep your customers coming again and again. Custom clothing is also great for companies, sports teams and academic organisations such as schools, and tertiary providers.

Custom Team Apparel

One form of popular customised clothing is team apparel. Outfit the team in your colors and print your logo or symbol on the front with players’ names and numbers on the back. You can get as creative as you want with custom team apparel, imprinting items like small graphics, slogans and custom lettering. The sky is the limit when it comes to customisable clothing for your sports team. And of course, team supporters will want shirts and hats as well!

Corporate Apparel

Whether you are planning a uniform program for your office staff or simply want to provide incentives to your sales staff, there is no better choice than customised clothing. Windbreakers, embroidered polos and fleece jackets with your company’s logo can make cost-effective gifts to inspire your sales force. Custom uniforms will help boost your team’s image, encourage healthy competition and increase camaraderie. Custom corporate apparel comes in a variety of styles to fit your company’s needs.

Companies, organisations and retailers have trusted the specialists at EmbroidMe for over a decade.

What’s Trending in the Promotional Products Industry for 2015?

With the new year underway, promotional marketing experts have spent January scouring the promotional products industry for the most innovative ways to promote your brand.

May 12

Items that could be used every day and make your life easier are a big trend as marketers want to ensure their products serve to benefit their prospective customers and make a daily impression.

Ever-popular items like pens, bags and cups appear with new innovations every year. For instance, bags with reflectors built in for safety are new this year, as are pens that can also be used as a stylus with touch devices. Even ceramic mugs with quirky additions like a chalkboard finish for writing notes on them are available. Every year, suppliers come up with creative solutions to liven up promo products.

As usual, we saw a huge surge in the number of tech gadgets as well. Chargers, Bluetooth speakers and triple USB ports were in high demand. Multitasking items like wireless headphones are indicative of our modern on-the-go lifestyles. Now, with the number of smartphones booming, accessories and cases are also increasing in popularity every year. Items like phone wallets with stands, tastefully branded, are popping up everywhere.

Wellness is a growing trend in promotional products. Water bottles are a big hit, especially those you can hold while you run, and some are even collapsible. Related to this trend are fruit infuser drops to flavour the recommended eight cups of water a day.

Sunglasses are still as popular as always, featured in a variety of fun colours and stylish options.
Customising apparel is a mainstay of promotional marketing. Recognizing the longevity of promotional apparel items, marketers are opting into sublimation printing for brilliantly coloured, long-lasting imagery that won’t fade as the item goes through multiple wearings and washings.

Video marketing is taking the promotional products industry by storm! Imagine opening a designer box of chocolates to find a promotional video inside – what a way to make an impression! Logoed packaging in general, “marketing in a box,” is becoming a big trend.

We’re excited to see how these new trends play out through the year.

Promotional Products generate up to 50% higher consumer recall rate than TV, print and online advertising!

flash drive promotional productsLatest research from PPAI’s reveals that promotional products are the hands-down winner when it comes message recall – generating a 15-50% higher consumer recall rate than TV, print and online advertising!

The first ever in-depth independent national survey into the power of promotional products in the UK questioned businessmen and women about their behavioural trends and preferences for different promotional gifts.

Key findings:

  • Promotional products can deliver a higher or equal ROI than most forms of advertising
  • 66% of respondents said they could remember the brand on the promotional products they received during the last year
  • 79% said they were likely to do business with the company in the future
  • 8 out of 10 (84 per cent) respondents said that a branded promotional gift increases brand awareness
  • Over three quarters (87 per cent) of recipients said they kept a promotional gift for longer than 12 months
  • Over half (56 per cent) of respondents said their opinion of the brand /company was more favourable after receiving the promotional product

Promotional products can deliver higher or equal ROI than most forms of advertising

One of the most significant findings of the survey is that promotional products can deliver a higher ROI than radio and outdoor advertising and a ROI that is equal to TV and print advertising. The cost per impression for a mug is £0.001, a mid-range pen £0.001, a calendar £0.004, a USB stick £0.005 and an umbrella £0.003. With an average cost per impression of £0.003, these figures compare extremely favourably with the cost per impression of other media with TV coming in at £0.008, radio at £0.003 and advertising hoardings at £0.003.

promotional products BPMA survey

New statistics show conclusive link between promotional products, branding and sales.

Stephen Barker, BPMA board director, said: “These figures show that promotional merchandise is a highly cost-effective form of promotion which gives a ROI that is higher or equal to all other forms of media. While radio and advertising hoardings have a relatively comparable cost per impression, they have a higher cost of entry than promotional items, requiring far larger sums to be spent to achieve this cost per impression. With an average cost per impression of £0.003 promotional items achieve a comparable ROI to media requiring a much larger outlay and it enables companies with a modest marketing budget to punch above their weight in terms of the level of exposure achieved.”

The survey also examined how much the respondents opinion changed after receiving a promotional item, giving a measure of how such products can affect feelings, perceptions and buying activity. Over half (56 per cent) of respondents said they felt more favourable towards the brand/company. When asked how much more or less likely they were to do business with the company in the future after receiving the promotional item over three-quarters (79 per cent) said they were more likely.

All You Need To Know About Apparel, Uniforms and Branded Products

Consider Your Industry
When thinking about the uniforms or apparel requirements of your business, take what type of work you are doing into consideration.

For example, are you doing manual labour outdoors?  Are you working in tight areas?  Are there regulatory considerations to factor in?  Are you working in the food industry or in areas with flammable materials?

Answering all of these questions will help to determine the right garment for you and your staff.


Cheapest Is Not Always Best
When considering a promotional product purchase, remember that cheapest is not always best.  In fact, it rarely is.

Say you were considering the purchase of some promotional pens to give away to some of your VIP clients.  Faced with the choice of a basic biro for, say, $1.50 or a more premium option at $3.00, which would you choose?

The cheaper one, right?  Not necessarily so!

Remember – the last thing that a client sees as they throw a faulty promotional pen into the bin is what?  YOUR LOGO!


One Size Doesn’t Fit All
Unfortunately a Size 10 isn’t the same everywhere you go.  And we don’t mean from country to country, we mean from local brand to local brand.

Each of our major stocked brands will have slight differences in their sizing, so the best thing for you and your staff to do is to visit our showroom and try on the polo shirt or business shirt to ensure that you get the right size for you.

Most of our catalogs will have a sizing chart inside that will help guide your decisions.  Our helpful staff will also be able to guide you through the process of getting the right uniform size.

Cotton Shrinkage
While most cotton garments are pre-shrunk in the production process, you should still allow for up to 3% shrinkage when trying on your uniforms, polo shirts and trousers.

To Screen Print or Not to Screen Print
Screen printing as a general rule becomes more effective the larger the order size.  The cost of the screens, multiplied by the number of colours, added with the number of prints that need to be done to your shirts can be quite expensive if you only have a shirt run of 20 shirts or less (especially for multiple colours).


However there are various options available to you:

* Vinyl Transfers – digitally printed or computer-cut and available in small runs.
* Direct-to-garment printing – able to print one-offs of photographic images direct onto your polo shirt

Speak to us about your uniform and we can help recommend the most cost-effective solution for your needs.

So Many Promo Products to Choose From!
We know that our extensive list of thousands and thousands of promotional products can be daunting.

Here’s an easy way to narrow down which is the most appropriate promotional product for your business – simply ask yourself these 3 questions:

1. Who is the intended end-user of the promotional product or giveaway?
2. Where will they be when they are most in need of my products and services?
3. How can I promote to them when they are in that situation?

Here at EmbroidMe, we can show you samples and help you find the best apparel and promotional products to meet your needs.
