I remember a couple of years ago printing a shirt that said “WOD” on it. We we’re pretty confused and so we looked it up to see that it stood for Workout of The Day. I also remember thinking this CAN’T be just one workout, this must be for the whole week or something. (Hence the expression we’ve since printed as well, “Your workout is my warmup!”)
Well since that day we have printed countless CrossFit and other fitness apparel. I mainly am writing this to acknowledge that as a community these are some of my favorite customers. Most of these Guys and Gals are not only energetic, but very enthusiastic about their designs. These gyms sell a lot of swag and I’m grateful for how many choose us to be their partner in creating some pretty kick ass merchandise.
We’ve been fortunate too to do some of our own in house designing for a lot of gyms, and the results have been quite awesome if I could stay objective! We are going to put together a few special packages for gyms in the next couple of months, so if you own a gym, please check back soon, as we’ll have a new page for you guys!
Okay…that was my Blog of The Day!
Wow, I’ve been meaning to post something for the last several weeks, but haven’t been able to get around to it. We’ve had some pretty massive jobs the last few months. I feel like each week there’s a new order exceeding a few thousand shirts followed by our usual orders for 100+ shirts. Lots of printing going on! On a separate note, Erin and I just had a baby… Oliver! He’s definitely the most serious member of the family…I’ve had a lot of customers ask to see pics so it’s easier to just post some here. We probably won’t put him to work for at least a few more months though! Here’s some of the stuff we’ve been up to this summer. Also, make sure to join our Facebook page to see more up to date info!
People ask me on a daily basis which shirts do I prefer? It’s a tough question with so many styles out there. I think that some people emphasize the design dramatically and then cheap out when it comes to the shirt. I am personally more of a fan of going with a nicer shirt or something a little different and keeping the design simple. But really the type of shirt to get is dependent on what the shirt will be used for. Gyms and fitness types like to go with Blends like the Next Level Triblend or Next Level CVC. On that same note blends are very popular with the younger generation since they can print more “Vintage” looking designs on them which is HOT right now…but we tend to use American Apparel Track Shirt and Canvas Triblend more for those. If it’s a 100% Cotton shirt you are looking for you can’t beat Canvas 3001, it’s soft and cut well, but you can save a little money and use Anvil which makes a really great “Fashion Fit” shirt in the Anvil 980. If you want a 100% Cotton shirt that is more affordable and has a ton of color options you can’t turn down the Gildan 5000.
Ladies shirts are a whole other breed! Bella has tons of really cool styles as does Alternative Apparel and Next. All of which carry the ever so trendy burnout. Don’t shy away from some of the cool Tunic styles or interesting cuts. Those always sell better than just your standard boring shirt!
I realize this blog was more technical and consists of me basically rambling of a bunch of shirt options. We have a FAVORITES page with some of our current favorite styles, but as always you are more than welcome to contact us in regards to any ideas you might have or if you want some assistance picking out the best shirt for your needs!
