T shirts have been with us since the 19th century, and were originally worn as undergarments rather than as standalone shirts. They were valued because they were inexpensive, easily-cleaned, and easy to fit. They became popular as outerwear during the 2nd World War, and gained in recognition in the 1950’ when they showed up in the movie “A Streetcar Named Desire” modeled by Marlon Brando. Since that time, promotional t shirts have continued with a constant rise in use and esteem.
Custom shirts are worn by men, women, and children of all age groups. They can be plain white or different colors and most have traditionally been made of cotton, though many also come in different materials as well. They can be plain, patterned, or have a company logo emblazoned on them. As promotional products they’re unrivaled, both because of their low cost and because of their wide use. One of the most widely-known companies to use T-shirts for advertising and branding was Disney with its many popular cartoon characters. We’ve all seen the smiley face t-shirts, and whenever you visit a resort or restaurant, it’s common to see them use company logo t shirts.
T-shirts today run the gamut in price range. You can select inexpensive promotional t-shirts such as the Hanes 100% cotton tagless t-shirt to give away to a large audience. Hand them out to valued employees or customers as a token of your appreciation.
At the other end of the spectrum, you can opt for a more expensive, higher quality piece of apparel like the alo ladies t shirt. Make every workout count with a shirt that moves with you and keeps you comfortably dry and cool. Made of 92/8 polyester/Spandex, it has StretchFlex technology that provides comfort and freedom of movement.
Choosing promotional t shirts as part of your advertising campaign is a smart move, which will help you reach the audience that you are targeting, and attain the goals that you have set.
