Let’s face it, if you’re going to win new business in this economy, you have to have a few good ideas up your sleeve. It’s time to start getting your spring orders booked. Whether you want to keep old business or drum up new business, you will need to bring samples of your best work and ideas to your customers. Don’t wait for them to come to you this year. There are so many people getting into the garment decorating business as a way to supplement their incomes , you will have to be on your game.
If you’re looking for ways to take normal school or team logos to the next level, make sure you know about distressed looks. We have been showcasing garments and samples with distressed one and two-color looks at tradeshows throughout the year and it has attracted a lot of attention. This look is hot now and will continue to be hot next year. Make sure you’re the one offering this to the schools and teams on your list of prospective customers this year. It’s an easy way to make something old look new again by making it look old (did that make sense?).
You can show the same logo in both distressed twill appliqué (needs to be sewn) and then again in distressed flock (a no-sew option). This gives your customer a choice when it comes to price points. You might be surprised how popular distressed flock is. It’s one of those things you have to see to appreciate. The photos here don’t really do it justice but if you could see and feel these samples you would know why the product is one of our best sellers. Make sure you have this look in your arsenal of logo choices for your customers. And if you haven’t started making your sales call lists yet, what are you waiting for?
