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 in the 1950’s gained in recognition 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.
These custom shirts are worn by men, women and children, and by all age groups. They are plain white, different colors; most have traditionally been made of cotton but now also come in different materials as well. They can be plain, patterned, or have a company logo emblazoned on them. As promotional products they are unrivalled, both because of their low cost and because of their wide use. One of the best known companies to use T-shirts for advertising and branding was Walt Disney with his many popular cartoon characters. We have all seen the smiley face t-shirts, and whenever you visit a resort or restaurant, it is common to see them use company logo t shirts.
T-shirts today can be as inexpensive or as expensive as you choose. You can select cheap promotional t-shirts such as the Fruit of the Loom Best 50/50 T-shirt for as little as $4.08 apiece. For this price, it is possible to give away large numbers of them, or to use them for your own employees.
At the other end of the spectrum are more expensive, high quality shorts such as 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.
