As a team member, you know how important it is to have an identity. There’s a reason that sports teams, employees, and students all wear uniforms. They provide a cohesive, easily identified look that makes membership clear. Uniforms first became popular in the sports industry in the mid-20th century, and today, the white pinstripe uniform worn by the Yankees is considered the most well-known in the nation.
It’s true that not all teams and organizations can afford uniforms as intricate and complete as those of the New York Yankees. However, custom printed tank tops, tee shirts, jerseys, and sweatshirts are all affordable uniform options for employees, teams, and organization members.
Custom screen printing is, in fact, a fairly old art. First dubbed “serigraphy” in the 1930s, screen printing involves transferring an image onto cloth by way of light, an emulsion liquid, and a screen. So what are all your options?
Custom Printed Tank Tops
Ideal for teams of waitresses, athletes, or volunteer groups working in the summer, custom printed tank tops provide style and uniformity all in one neat little package. Ribbed tank tops might be difficult to work with, but flat styles are still a stylish option.
Custom Printed Tee Shirts
This is often the go-to to option for many teams and organizations, as they can be worn by anyone and everyone. Custom tee shirts can include designs on both the front and the back, can be printed in many colors, and lend an air of casual uniformity to any group, team, or organization.
Custom Printed Jerseys
Jerseys are the clear choice for many sports teams, though few realize that custom screen printing is an option for this medium. Screen printing makes it easy for each jersey to bear the same design on the front of each shirt, but a different design on the back, delineating each player as an individual.
Custom Printed Sweatshirts
Sweatshirts are perfect casual wear for team members who want to show their pride off the field, out of the workplace, and around the community. Whether you opt for hooded or hoodless styles, there’s something to be said about combining warmth and a little team identity.
Custom screen printing is a great way to help your team, group, or organization feel like a unit. Whichever style you choose, know that you’re providing members with an important way to unify, show support, and create brand awareness. It’s a win for everyone!
