Best practices for your customizable clothing
We talked about T-shirts at the beginning of this article, but the following advice can apply to all kinds of customizable clothing.
1: Bet on Quality
Make sure to choose quality pieces, it is better to invest a little more on the unit cost and look worn out than to leave your t-shirt in a corner due to poor quality. Quality will also have a significant impact on your branding, so it should not be taken lightly.
2: Choose the material well
Similarly, pay attention to the choice of material. Especially the quality of cotton. These materials should also be in line with the values of your brand. Some suppliers, for example, offer certified organic organic cotton.
3: Get started with successful integration of your brand
Don’t rush your brand integration, think about how your brand will integrate, and oversee the quality of personalization.
Before ordering t-shirts in large quantities, order 1 or 2 with different materials and integration techniques to choose from and appreciate the integration of your brand. Some suppliers even offer real or virtual samples to better understand your brand integration before placing an order.
4: Be creative
To always optimize the chances of being worn and appreciated by your customers, make sure T-shirts incorporate your brand in a creative way. Why not hire a designer to help you create an original model.
Sites like Malt or LinkedIn can help you find a designer for this assignment.
5: Keep the deadline in mind
Depending on the suppliers you choose and the level of production quality, lead times can vary from 7 to 15 days, please inquire when ordering and take this into account when organizing your communication campaign.
