Making money with Spirit Wear

making money with spirit wear

Kirkwood Trading Company – Spirit wear headquarters

Making money with spirit wear – where to begin

Making money with spirit wear is a solid way to raise revenue for a school, sports team, or any kind of organization. It’s a very old fundraising method that has actually gotten easier over the years. Aside from being a cost effective marketing tool it also raises awareness of unique. I’ll use a youth baseball organization in this example. Youth club baseball is a competitive industry and the various organizations do a great job of promoting their organization through their custom jerseys, t-shirts, jackets, bags, sweatshirts, etc. In this day and age these baseball organizations are not limited to a blue sweatshirt with white writing. The options are endless so now the goal is to not only to market the organization through spirit wear, but marketing through unique spirit wear. Now they can get a blue sweatshirt with white contrast stitching and camo piping down the sides to allow them to stand out even more. It’s not just about using apparel to raise funds but using apparel that is unique.

Making money with spirit wear – The market

The easiest thing about making money with spirit wear is you have a captured audience. Every school has their student body and every team has their fans and every foundation has their supporters. Sometimes the market can dictate what you want to offer and bouncing ideas off the potential buyers is a great idea. Often times people just want to have something to wear to show support.

At Kirkwood Trading Company we print a lot of custom spirit wear for area schools and teams and foundations. There are always going to be those staple pieces of apparel that will always sell no matter what. However since we are in the business we are always trying to present our spirit wear customers with new trendy ideas that they can include in an order form or incorporate on their spirit shop website or school store. We have one particular high school client who sells tons of basic sweatshirts of varying school colors with a simple school name printed on the chest. Those aren’t going to go out of style but from a profit standpoint, once a student buys that sweatshirt they may buy one more throughout their school career. So the idea is to offer different pieces each time as well so those kids who have the staples will also be interested in new and different spirit wear.

making money with spirit wear – basics

Making money with spirit wear can be simple. Nobody has to reinvent the wheel. You simply need to know your audience and their taste for the types of logo wear they’ll wear to promote. Basics will always be in style but you also want to offer a few unique pieces of apparel as well. Introduce a ladies cut or a youth style shirt. Today the most popular styles are the moisture wicking performance fabrics. There will always be people who strictly like cotton but today it’s almost a 50/50 split between customer preference.

Simple designs go a long way. A unique eye catching design not only attracts the buyer but also attracts people to look at it in passing. There is a reason why every major professional sports team has multiple outlets to sell their apparel. They know they have a loyal following that crosses state lines and ever countries. Spirit wear for youth sports and schools is no different, you just have a smaller demographic.

making money with spirit wear – exposure

Physical brick and mortar spirit shops will always thrive. Especially in a setting such as a school. With the technology we live in today people can increase their sales by 50% with a simple online presence. I know Kirkwood Trading Company offers our clients free online spirit stores. We put them together, handle order processing, and if need be shipping as well. Schools for instance can increase their sales with an online presence to their alumni. We have introduced online spirit stores to our clients and they have all had a significant increase in sales mainly from alumni and parents of kids who don’t have the time to go to the school during the stores open hours.

If you’d be interested in learning more about increasing profits and getting the most out of your spirit wear feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to show you how we can help. Here are a couple links.

Custom Printed Soccer Jerseys | St. Louis

custom printed soccery jerseys

Outfit your team in jerseys

Custom Printed Soccer Jerseys

Custom printed soccer jerseys aren’t what they used to be. Today many teams, especially youth and indoor are substituting the traditional jersey for a moisture wicking performance poly tee. In fact even the major brands are offering several styles in the moisture wicking tee. The nice thing about these are that they are very cost effective which is great when you are talking about a kick around indoor league or kids who will outgrow the jerseys by next season.

Typically 12-16 custom printed soccer jerseys with a 1 color logo on the front with a name and number on the back will run around $15-$18 per jersey. It just depends on the particulars of shirt style, color, and whether it’s standard lettering. This is pretty much the going rate from Kirkwood Trading Company. We print a ton of jerseys for many different kinds of teams each year from youth soccer to adult indoor fun leagues.

The quality of the jersey is key especially if you are talking indoor. The best fitting and comfortable tees are the polyester tees with the moisture wicking properties which are also light weight. Gone are the days of the thick cotton shirts that just hold the moisture in.

When it comes to custom printed soccer jerseys we can also assist in logo design. We’ll be happy to show you different font options for the names and numbers and even the various options for the texture of the lettering and numbering.

In addition to jerseys we carry soccer socks and shorts as well as bags. We can cater an entire uniform for your needs and even provide the spirit wear.

Custom printed aprons in St. Louis

custom printed aprons

custom aprons

Custom printed aprons are a great addition to a company’s brand. A lot of companies keep it to a hat or shirt and then keep the apron blank. If aprons are part of the brand or uniform it only makes sense to have those customized as well. While aprons are not a huge seller there is some nostalgia in the places that still make them part of their everyday business.

I remember in high school I had a job where an apron was part of the uniform. These things were just terrible. They were one size fits all so to make them really fit often times we had to fold them up to make them look right and it was just a big pain. Fortunately these are not something that got lost with technology because not they make aprons where all of the straps adjust with a simple pull. They are great and make fitting anyone a snap. In addition there are more colors available now than ever before.

There are two main process to provide custom aprons. There is embroidery which is more costly and then there is custom printed aprons through screen printing. The nice thing about screen printing is that it’s a more cost effective method. Especially if the job detail is one where aprons get dirty such as coffee houses or bakeries. You will find a small variety of nuetral colors and basic colors available. Kirkwood Trading Company can help you pick the right apron for your particular need and also assist with design and print colors.

Custom Graphic T Shirts

custom graphic t shirt printing

Kirkwood Trading Company

Custom Graphic T shirts are about to get really popular. Sure, their popularity has never waned but with the increased shirt colors, styles, brands, and materials people who never use custom logo wear for promotion are starting to see the benefits. Trends are always cyclical and with today’s trends leaning towards lighter and thinner shirts, more companies than every have jumped on board. More and more companies are increasing their product line to cater to the ever growing popularity that is the custom graphic t shirts.

Custom Graphic T shirts – Printing

Today when you place an order for custom graphic t shirts you may notice a softer feeling more vibrant logo. Companies have reformulated their inks and I know from first hand experience here at Kirkwood Trading Company, when we are printing custom graphic t shirts there is a new softness to the inks. The inks go down easier and feel softer. So the weight of the shirt doesn’t really matter much anymore because the inks are thinner and softer. Of course there are some conditions where this may not be always be the case based on certain designs. For the most part this holds true.

Custom Graphic T shirts – Pricing

Custom Graphic T shirts range in price today more than ever. With all the different manufacturers and styles and colors a large gap has been created. The difference between a basic cotton t shirt and camo t shirt may be several dollars. Same holds true for a cotton t shirt and sublimated polyester tee. For the most part, 90% of the people purchasing custom printed t shirts will be in the lower spectrum of cost. This isn’t a bad thing as the quality and softness of t shirts has remained low because of manufacturer competition.
