The polo shirt is a versatile piece of clothing that serves various purposes for different people. There are so many ways of going about polo shirt printing. People tend to perceive polo shirts as a shirt only for casual occasions. This could not be further from the truth. Polo shirts actually started out as sporting attire, catering to the British ruling class back in the 1920s. Athletes playing sports such as polo, tennis, and golf commonly have polo shirts as their clothes of choice. Basically, polo is a fancy people’s sportswear.
Sports aside, polo shirts can also be used as a team jersey for companies and organizations, because of their unique combination of both stylish looks, and well as utility for more physical activities. Hanging out with the guys? Team gathering? Polo! Time for football? Maybe polo (we’re not too sure about this one)?
Now here are some tips on getting your polo shirt printed. There are 3 important tips, so keep them in mind! First up, keep it simple. Polo shirts look classy and stylish. A simple design will do the job. Sometimes, less is more. This is especially true for polo shirts. Over-designing the polo shirt may not be what’s best, and you may come to regret it one day while having it on. Therefore, go for a simple or relatively compact design that will be loud but not obnoxious about what you want portrayed.
Polo tip 2: Be mindful of colouring. Without a good selection of colours, your polo shirt will not have the look or feel desired. When you see red, you feel heat and aggression. With blue, cool and calm. That said, different colours make you feel different things, as it should. Do consider how you want yourself and others to feel when they lay their eyes upon your shirt. Also, be careful about how you choose to place your colour on the shirt. After all, you want that shirt to look like a masterpiece, not a randomly coloured scrawling.
Finally, choose the right printing method. Different methods come with their own price tag, but it is definitely worth it. 3 common printing methods are Silkscreen printing, Embroidery, and Heat Transfer or Vinyl Sticker Printing. Silkscreen printing is the best solution for class t-shirt, workman uniform, and event t-shirt for its vibrant finishing and long-lasting durability. Silkscreen printing is a popular choice and well-known for cost efficiency. In other words; the more you print, the less it costs you. Custom embroidery is suitable for those looking to have a logo with more than 5 colours or logo sized artwork up to 10cm x 10cm with a professional image and elegant finishing. The logo designs will be converted into a digital format and the embroidery designs will be directly inserted to the shirt. Perhaps you fancy a gradient and tone design with individualised names and numbers for a sports jersey? The heat transfer printing will be the most suitable for small quantity order, with multiple designs and colours that do not add on to your cost due to each design is printed and cut individually.
