Embroidered Custom Apparel Helps School Spirit Shine

One way to instill school pride and enthusiasm in students is to offer clothing with school logos and names imprinted on them. Students like to dress up in their official colors to look stylish and support their school in special events or for everyday wear in class. When schools offer custom screen printed or embroidered apparel, they give students the opportunity to show school spirit in a number of ways.

Wear to Games
When students attend games, it is important for them to wear clothing with the school’s name on it in team colors. Not only does this show their classmates that someone is rooting for them, it also shows opponents that the team and its supporters mean business. Custom hoodies, ball caps and embroidered T-shirts show school spirit and add excitement to the crowd in the stands.

Spirit Day
Spirit day is often celebrated in the fall. It may be tied into homecoming, a big game or alumni day. Pep rallies and inter-class competitions are even more fun when students are decked out in official colors. Schools can encourage students to wear their favorite custom apparel to show their pride.

Fundraisers
Fundraising has become an important part of supporting a school’s budget. These events are also used to support a worthy cause in the local community. Candy sales, car washes and raffles are all popular ways to raise money. As representatives of their school, children should wear their T-shirts, jackets and sweatshirts so that donors can see where they are from. Not only does this encourage people to support local schools, it gives the fundraising effort an added boost in making it look official.

Competitions
When athletes and extracurricular activity groups attend competitions, they should have matching clothing or uniforms that designate who they are and where they’re from. This shows school pride and helps teammates show support for each other on the sidelines or in the stands.

Field Trips
When kids attend field trips, they can wear clothing emblazoned with official colors and logos in custom embroidery. It helps the teachers and chaperones keep track of them in a crowd, and gives brand recognition to the school itself. This is also a good time to take class pictures and group shots to be used later in the yearbook.

Regardless of the occasion, wearing custom embroidered apparel is a positive reinforcement of showing spirit, support and pride for schools. Large orders can be placed so that items can be sold in the local bookstore, on campus or at various events.

Ordering Sports Team Uniforms & Spirit Wear is Easy With Custom Web Stores

Every sports league can’t wait to jump into game time as the season creeps closer and closer. The kids are anxious and the parents are just realizing how much prep work is really involved. The team needs uniforms, spirit wear, coach’s gear & possibly extra products to sell at the game for fund raiser purposes. Whew… that’s a lot to organize!

It would be great if money was available up front & the team only had to do one big order. But that’s sadly not the reality. Money is difficult to collect from each child and there are always roster changes after the team gear has been ordered. There has got to be a more efficient way to organize orders & payment.

Custom Web Stores are the perfect solution. For example, a soccer team has its own online web store where the individual players can order their gear and pay online via credit card. No more bulk orders, no more hassling with money – it is seamless and easy.

Now how does a league go about setting up a custom web store? You’d be surprised that many of the custom apparel shops that provide team gear can also create & maintain your teams online store. Once the apparel designs are completed and sent into production the shop takes pictures and uploads the products to your custom web store. From there the individual players access the website, place their orders, pay online & pickup at the shop location.

Now that the parents don’t have to stress about apparel orders and handling money, their energy can be spent cheering for the kids at the big game!

Custom Apparel and Accessories for Christmas

The stores are decked out with snowflakes, bright lights, and festive colors. Everywhere you go there is cheery music playing and people bundled up in warm winter clothes. These sights can only mean one thing – Christmas is almost here!

It can be tough to get in the Christmas spirit when tackling massive shopping lists and holiday decorating projects, but don’t let that get you down! Custom apparel and accessories can help you create family memories, buy for the hard-to-shop-for people on your list, get you and your home looking festive, and leave you feeling jolly! I have put together a few ideas that may come in handy during this Christmas season.

Christmas Home Decorating

How do you set your home apart when everyone you know decorates for Christmas? Sure, you have lights strung, a tree decorated, and gifts wrapped with pretty paper and fancy bows, but so does everyone else. To set your home apart, customize accessories for the season.

An easy way to update your living room for Christmas is by adding a custom throw blanket. A blanket will keep you or your guests warm during the cold winter months and you can customize them in so many ways. If you have young children, maybe decorate your blanket with a big picture of Santa or his famous red-nosed reindeer, Rudolph. For a more elegant look, try snowflakes or pretty poinsettias.

Customizing stockings can be fun for the entire family. Add names on each stocking in a matching font for a consistent look, then let each person in your family personalize their stocking with holiday graphics. You can also customize Santa hats which would be fun for parties or caroling.

If you have a dog, include them in the holiday happenings by making them a custom t-shirt or bandana. Add cute phrases like “Sorry Santa, I ate your cookies” or “Santa’s little helper.” I like to dress my dog in a pink ringer t-shirt that says “Santa, I’ve been good” on the back.

Christmas Apparel and Holiday Party Ideas

If Christmas parties are in your holiday plans, try creating custom t-shirts. A long sleeve shirt covered in sparkly snowflakes can look sophisticated on a designer t-shirt and can be worn all season long. If your family gives portrait greeting cards, why not create custom shirts for everyone before you have the portrait taken.

Have you ever been invited to an ugly sweater party? These parties are becoming a fun holiday tradition, so why not start your own spinoff with an ugly t-shirt party. Have guests create their own ugly holiday themed shirt a few weeks before the party. Then, on the night of the party, have guests vote on the ugliest shirt. You can even offer a grand prize to the guest with the winning design. Remember to take photos of everyone in their creations! As a thank you to all who participate, make goodie bags with customized buttons. Many t-shirt design websites offer buttons and other accessories to personalize that would make perfect party favors.

Custom Apparel and Accessories for Everyone on your Gift List

Custom apparel and accessories can make gift giving a breeze. Do you have someone on your shopping list that is just so darned hard to shop for? I think everyone does. Why not create a custom t-shirt for them to unwrap Christmas morning? They are guaranteed not to have it already, and knowing you created it just for them will make the gift even more memorable. For the cooking enthusiast, create a custom apron and wrap it along with new cooking gadgets. Do you have any sports fans on your list, the kind that have already purchased everything related to their favorite team? Why not make them a new shirt or a baseball cap. Really, the possibilities for custom gift giving are endless!

Have a Holly Jolly Custom Christmas!

Don’t forget that the most important ingredient to a successful Christmas season is happiness! Reduce your holiday stress by opting for personalized gifts and accessories this year. These ideas are sure to make your celebrations memorable and fun for everyone. Have fun creating your custom t-shirts and accessories this Christmas!
