Want to make a statement? Do it with logoed apparel! With just one glance at customized polos, your employees, customers, and prospects get a feel for your brand. A crisp, embroidered polo shirt reads differently than a screen printed t-shirt or an embroidered dress shirt. What story do you want your branded apparel to tell?
Polo shirts are available in an impressive variety of brand names, sizes, colors, as well as fabrics and finishes. When choosing the right polo for your needs, consider your budget, desired imprint method, your target market, and how and where you expect the polo shirts to be worn. Polos are available in budget-friendly and basic 100% cotton varieties as well as in pricier name-brand performance fabrics. If your target market includes both men and women, you may wish to shop for shirts that provide companion styles designed to fit both genders. Will your branded polo shirts be a regular component of employee uniforms? A cotton/poly blend polo may be your best bet since this type of fabric holds up well to frequent wash and wear. If you intend to hand out customized polo shirts at a golf outing or other outdoor event, a polo manufactured with wicking performance fabric is ideal. Performance fabric pulls moisture away from the skin, keeping people cool and dry even in the hottest conditions.
Besides your target market, you’ll need to consider your desired imprint method when choosing the perfect polo shirt. While a few polos can accept screen printing decoration, most are customized through embroidery, typically on the left chest. However, other less common decoration methods are available on certain polos. These decoration methods feature a subtle, tone-on-tone imprint, also typically on the left chest. Laser etching actually removes the surface of the fabric to create the imprint and is ideal for both big and small imprint areas as well as detailed designs. Debossing is another decoration method providing a subtle, tone-on-tone look for your logo. In the debossing process, a metal die plate created with your logo is pressed into the fabric of each polo shirt, creating a multi-dimensional look.
