The 50 (ish) Ways to Brand Your T-Shirt

Did someone say that t-shirts were boring and not hugely versatile and exciting as branding tools? Certainly not while on our watch!

At our latest count, we found 50 ways to brand a T-shirt and maximise the visibility of your brand.t-shirt feb newsletter

In our opinion, the humble t-shirt is one of the most versatile, re-usable and practical merchandising product you can brand.

And we can prove it!

  • A t-shirt is highly visible and an easy win for any networking, meeting, marketing event or activity.
  • It is low cost, effective and immediately creates a group of brand ambassadors.
  • It is a relatively small investment for a long-term endorsement and brand gain.

There are many ways to brand a t-shirt.  Embroidered or printed logos, embedded images, embellishments, use of brand colours in the material, appliqued, etc…the list is very long.

In the Pink (but very Green) Sourcing Team House, we brainstormed all the available options and found we had documented more than 50 different ways !
