Before and After–What A Difference Lettering Makes

It seems I’m not the only one who thinks that the idea of promoting the service of adding lettering to existing or pre-printed garments is a good idea. Josh Ellsworth mentioned that he laughed when he read my blog post this morning about the MI Elite Volleyball club because his already submitted article for the March issue of Printwear Magazine covers a similar topic. I will post a link to the article when it is available online. Josh puts an interesting spin on the art of personalization and has a lot of great ideas and before and after photos. I can’t reprint the article here, but he did say I could use a few of his photos as a preview. Thanks for the photos Josh. As you can see…lettering adds value to just about any shirt. Value people will pay for!

These pictures are important because not everyone thinks it is possible to add lettering to already preprinted or pre-embroidered items, or that it is necessary to use the same method of decoration for both the main logo and the custom text addition. A heat press gives you the ability to add lettering to just about anything. Take a look at this sports bag, which features an embroidered logo. The custom name was added with a heat press.

Name added to sports bag in Fashion Film Electric, a CAD-CUT material. The logo is embroidered.

Thanks to Josh Ellsworth and MI Elite Volleyball Club for furnishing the photos to show what a difference lettering makes.
