Company shirts are wearable billboards
Wearing a shirt with your companies logo on it is like walking around wearing a billboard. Depending on where you go that day, if you are wearing a company shirt, a countless number of people will be exposed to your brand. At Viera Social Media we believe that company shirts are a highly effective way to market your brand. If you own a small business, you can benefit from wearing t-shirts with your logo on them.
One helpful hint is that shirts come in different materials and prices. Make your that you choose shirts that you will actually wear, and not just the ones that are cheapest. Wearing company shirts is a great way to market your business. However, they are a waste of money if you buy shirts you don’t actually want to wear just to save a few dollars.
The logo file types you will need
You may think that simply having any logo file will make it easy to get it printed on a shirt. However, what you may not know is that you need certain types of files for each of the different shirt printing methods.
With screen printing, for example, your logo needs to be in an editable vector format. A .JPEG or .PNG will need to be converted into a vector format so that the colors can be printed separately and screen printed. While most screen printing companies will convert your .jpegs to vectors, it will delay the process.
You can use a .JPEG or .PNG for DTG also known as Direct to Garment printing. However, it must be high-res or the design will look fuzzy and pixelated. We can help take low resolution files and make them into vectors so that they will look crisp and sharp when printed DTG.
