So you have set up in business on your own. You need perhaps two polo shirts, one hoodie and maybe a coat if it rains.
Budget of £100. But what the heck is that £36 originators fee?
This was a question asked of us last week, by a lovely guy just setting up in business for the first time as a plumber.
It was difficult to explain to him that the traditional methods of making personalised clothing required a lot of artwork preparation. In the case of screen printing, this was to make the screen. Very cost effective if you are looking of a run of 100 units of the same size. Ditto embroidery, although once set up, I believe the size can be adapted.
Either way, no use to the single trades person wanting just a few units.
This is where the new clothing vinyls win out. Not only is there no extra cost for artwork or origination. But you could order single items and have a different effect on each. Glitter? Definitely! Foil? If you want it! Glossy? Why not! Embellished in snakeskin? Weird but possible!
In fact, from our training course, we managed to get all these lovely effects from just one make of clothing vinyl. And it works on fleece, lycra and waterproof jackets as well as polo shirts.
What would you choose?
