People Love Customized Scrubs

// posted by Cam Schultz

Aug 09

There are roughly 34 licensed healthcare facilities in San Diego, and all of them will have medical personnel in scrubs. It's such a big part of the medical culture that a TV show about a hospital is named after them. With this ubiquity, it is tempting to order generic scrubs or get sloppy about their appearance. After all, no one cares if the equipment is decorated. However, scrubs are more than just equipment; it is part of your staff's identity. So why not create a customized design for your scrubs? You can have your staff vote on a logo or a font for their name which can then go on all of their scrubs. That way, not only will your scrubs be very chic and give everyone a little fun, but you will reap the following advantages.

Gets Employees Engaged

    A survey conducted by Bain discovered that people who got customized products were more engaged with companies than those who didn't. They stayed twice as long on the company's website and felt more loyal to the brand. This translates into our work environment, too. When we get specialized uniforms, we pay more attention to our work environment and get excited about our company's possibilities.

    And if you think about it, what your staff wears is an important part of their work environment. They bring it with them between nurse pods and offices. They will see the results of your customization every time they go to the bathroom at work. All this extra engagement will cut back on turnover and burnout in staff members, and give them the boost in morale that they need to see them through the long shifts they have to work.

Cheers Up Patients

     Ever walk into a room, spot someone wearing a clever t-shirt, and immediately smile? We can't help it: play on words and beautiful artwork lifts our mood, making even serious business fun. And let's face it, some of your patients are nervous. They are about to receive life-altering news in some form, or they worry that some little symptom indicates the onset of cancer. Some patients get nervous just about hospitals and lab coats in general. These upset patients are not in a good position to handle what the doctors and nurses are telling them. Their internal voices are screaming, so all they hear is 'doom, blah blah, doom.' Then they can't hear what they need to do to recover. 

    But get patients smiling with charmingly customized scrubs, and even patients that are about to receive bad news will be in a better frame of mind. They will be able to absorb information and follow instructions better. 

Cements Your Brand

    Your facility has a lot of competition, and you want to do everything you can to reward patients who choose you over the other options. Unique scrubs add to the general impression that your facility is a good place to stay while you recover your health. This impression can spread, too. A lot of people tell stories about their hospital stays. Customized scrubs might get a mention when your recovered patient talks about her or his illness and hospital stay, and even if they don't get singled out, they comfortable atmosphere it contributed to will. Customized scrubs may feel like a little thing, but anything that highlights your place will make your facility memorable, thus encouraging more people to choose you.

     So here we have 3 good reasons to order customized scrubs for your staff. Fortunately, EmbroidMe has years of experience with customizing scrubs and can produce ones that everyone will love. If you are interested in getting the spiffiest scrubs you can for your facility, contact us.

What do you wear at weight loss camp? If you run a fitness camp, chances are many of your guests spend much of their stay wearing t-shirts, so how about getting custom t-shirt printing to help make their experience more special while you promote your resort? Here are some of the advantages of getting your own custom t-shirts along with creative ways to use them.

Build Team Spirit: One reason that weight loss camps are so popular is that they offer social support. Wearing the same clothing is one simple way to send the message that everyone is on the same team so your guests can start getting to know each other, and find ways to help everyone to reach their weight loss and fitness goals.

custom tshirts for your weight loss camp

Fight Stigma: It's no secret that being overweight or obese sometimes exposes people to discrimination or other negative treatment. The stigma of needing to lose weight can actually become a barrier to taking pounds off. Your custom printed t-shirts could help to change people's thinking so they can become proud of making the decision to do something to improve their lives and their health. Maybe you'll want to print funny or inspiring fitness slogans on your shirt, along with your name and logo.

Be Practical: On top of everything else, providing t-shirts to your guests just makes sense. They're going to want something comfortable to wear for their workout sessions and maybe for sleeping. Plus, if their days are packed with planned activities from breakfast to bedtime, they're not going to have much time to spend thinking about what to wear.

Encourage Follow Up: Fortunately, many of today's best health spas are far more focused on encouraging long-term lifestyle changes instead of aiming for rapid weight loss that may not be sustainable. When your guests return home with their t-shirts, they'll have a tangible reminder of all their hard work and valuable accomplishments. That simple memento may help them to maintain their motivation to eat healthy and exercise regularly. If they choose to stay friends with the other guests they met during their camp days, they can even wear their shirts when they get together for formal or informal reunions.

How can you present and use your t-shirts? Maybe you'll want to give each a guest a welcome packet when they check in that includes their shirt and any additional gifts, along with all the materials and supplies they'll need for their stay. If you're offering a more luxurious package you might even provide a full wardrobe. Consider filling a basket in their bedroom each evening with everything they'll need in the morning including their t-shirt and other workout wear for the day, the daily schedule and menu, and any educational handouts.

In addition, those t-shirts are perfect for photo opportunities when you're taking pictures for your website or your guests want a shot of themselves and their new workout buddies to post on their Facebook page or Instagram. You could also decorate your lobby with group photos of each graduating class so each batch of new arrivals will see that they can do it too.

While losing pounds and wearing smaller-sized clothing is not the only way to measure your fitness, it can be one of the most noticeable pleasures of losing weight. You might want to let your guests know that you're happy to accept their original t-shirt back if they need to trade it in for something smaller when they leave.

Logo T-shirts Promote Your Podcast

Jul 12

If you recently started a podcast, you have stiff competition. Podcasts are proliferating on the internet, and they fill every niche. How many active podcasts exist is hard to estimate, but there are an uncountable number of them listed on iTunes, even if you are only looking in the history category. And that does not include the local ones like the ones stationed here in San Diego. The university has class lessons broadcast on a podcast, and there is a local podcast that covers the San Diego lifestyle beat. 

   Your new podcast does not have to go unheard, however. One good way to make your podcast stand out is to give or sell to your listeners custom designed logo t-shirts. These are wearable works of art with your podcasts name on it which may very well give your show the boost it needs.

Classic Swag For The Digital Age

    While Southern California can be full of high-tech attractions, the classics are still beloved here. T-shirts with screen printed logos go back to the 1960's, and they are ingrained in our culture as a form of personal expression. Giving t-shirts to your subscribers, whether you offer them as free swag at a podcasting convention, offer them on sale as part of your show, or give them to donors, is part of a grand tradition that your podcast listeners will want to join. Besides, this could be audio's second Golden Age, so hearkening back to an earlier tradition makes thematic sense.

Mobile Promotion

   San Diego's warm climate and beach-life attitude make t-shirts the apparel of choice for many activities. Why shouldn't your subscribers sport your logo t-shirt while they are at it? They will spread the name and theme of your podcast everywhere while they go grocery shopping, do their banking, or work in the community garden. At the very least, it will make your logo familiar enough to anyone looking for a new podcast so that they might give you a listen, just to see why that person they saw was wearing the same logo. Familiarity makes your podcast safe to try in the minds of the searchers.

   In the best case scenario, people ask the wearer of the shirt about the logo, and your loyal listener gets to talk up your show. Subscribers can make the best pitch to potential listeners, too: they know what interests the other person and they are not directly affiliated with you. This makes them a sort of user social proof: their enthusiasm proves that other people like this podcast, which encourages people to try it out. This sort of user recommendation is a powerful way to recruit new listeners, according to TechCrunch.

Reward Your Donors

   There is a running joke on one popular podcast about what the host will give donors, from beer to a wild boat trip. This reflects the need of anyone with a podcast to give their donors something valuable for their contributions. Logo t-shirts fill this niche nicely, especially in the San Diego market, where t-shirts are guaranteed to be both decorative and practical. Beautiful t-shirts with your catchphrase and logo screen printed or embroidered on it will make a $5 donor feel like part of the in-crowd. More practically, it will encourage more giving. These shirts act as a tangible acknowledgment of your listeners support that will inspire gratitude in them, which study from Berkeley has shown will make them more receptive to giving at your next big drive.

    While podcasts are high-tech, their promotion should include the classics. If you want to spread the word about your show with t-shirts, contact us. We are experts in creating logos and designs, so let our art compliment and promote yours.

While visibility is nice for any organization, it's an essential part of your mission when you're running a neighborhood watch group. Neighborhood watch groups are one of the most effective ways to reduce crime, and they have many other important benefits for a community. Promotional clothing and other products can be part of that success by giving you more visibility.

Speaking of success, San Diego has an especially impressive record. The San Diego City Council reports that there are more than 50 neighborhood watch groups in our area, and many news sources confirm that San Diego's crime rate is the lowest it has been in nearly 50 years, partly due to close ties between local authorities and community members.

If you want to get involved, here are some suggestions for buying and using promotional products, and other aspects of starting and maintaining a neighborhood watch group.

watch group promotional clothing custom

How to Use Promotional Clothing: You might want to purchase a variety of items including t-shirts and hats in both adult and children's sizes. Your individual mix may depend on what's popular and useful in your neighborhood. For example, if you're in one of the more pedestrian friendly areas in San Diego you might get hats or shirts for volunteers doing neighborhood walks. If you expect to do a lot of graffiti paint outs and clean-up events, you may prefer an ample supply of custom scrubs so people won't mind getting messy. Depending on your activities, it may also be appropriate to have logo goods available in English, Spanish, and other languages to make a positive and inclusive statement. Whatever happens, you'll have plenty of opportunities to use and display your clothing at your own meetings, block parties, and service projects, as well as recruitment and educational activities done in partnership with other neighborhood organizations.

How to Pay for Your Promotional Clothing: Local employers and small businesses may be willing to help cover expenses for many things including logo goods, especially if you offer them recognition for their contribution. That way you may be able to provide free items to motivate and thank your volunteers. You may also want to consider charging membership fees or selling promotional items to raise funds. In addition, you can find many helpful examples online of how other neighborhood watch groups are raising funds from traditional rummage sales to Go Fund Me campaigns. While fundraising isn't necessary, it may enable your group to be more active and accomplish more.

Online Presence: Naturally, many neighborhood watch groups have websites, Facebook pages or some other online presence these days. In addition to recruiting volunteers and offering your logo goods for sale, you can provide safety information and reminders about issues like keeping your alarm system turned on and being especially vigilant during the holidays.

Other Benefits: While security may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a neighborhood watch group, the benefits extend much further. The greatest value may be in helping people to get to know their neighbors and feel connected. In addition to reducing burglaries, neighborhood watches can provide designated block parents and safe houses for local children, help lost pets find their way home, and provide a head start for organizing and responding to other crisis situations like natural disasters and medical issues. When you or a neighbor wear your logo products you could be sending an important message about how to find someone trained and available to help in an emergency.

At EmbroidMe San Diego, we are happy to assist you with any branded apparel or promotional items you and your neighborhood watch will need. Contact us today to discuss how you can use logo goods to raise awareness and promote your cause.

While all promotional clothing is valuable, some types of promotional clothing will work particularly well. Sometimes, companies just need to emphasize specific types of clothes, and they'll get a better reaction from the people who receive the promotional clothing. 

Promotional Clothing for Every Season

Many different types of promotional clothing will only be appropriate during certain seasons. 

stylish custom promotional clothing

Promotional clothing that can be worn in nearly all kinds of weather will be particularly popular. 

Customers have consistently favored clothes like these. For instance, many people will automatically purchase clothes that have built-in layers, because they'll think that they're getting a good deal.

These people will also know that they can get a lot of use out of clothes like this. Styles like this will be especially appealing to today's customers, who are interested in saving money and sustainable clothing design.

Promotional 3-in-1 jackets should be very successful as promotional clothing. People who get 3-in-1 jackets that they like will often wear them for most of the year, which is possible with outerwear like this. 

It should also be noted that promotional clothing should be more effective if it's practical for people to wear for most of the year. It means that people will spend even more time subtly displaying advertising the company's logo. This is something that all companies should keep in mind. 

Sensible Fashion

Some companies might think that people who care more about looking a certain way won't care about the versatility of a particular item of clothing. In fact, the opposite is sometimes true.

People who develop their own style will often wear clothes connected with that style all year. For instance, people who enjoy plaid flannel shirts will sometimes wear them even when it's warm outside. They'll love finding clothes associated with their chosen style that won't be impractical for them to wear whenever they want. 

Of course, people who don't particularly care about wearing any specific style will still love versatile clothes like 3-in-1 jackets. Many of these people favor clothing that's considered sensible, and 3-in-1 jackets certainly fall into that category. 

Companies should try to get a sense of the 3-in-1 jacket styles that are available. If they create promotional clothing like this, it should be loved by their audience members all year, regardless of how concerned they are with fashion in general.  

Popular Modern Clothing Styles

Companies that want to offer the most valuable promotional clothing should pay attention to modern fashion trends. For instance, clothes that have more of a vintage or traditional look have been everywhere for a while now. Lots of traditional clothing was appropriate for a wide range of different seasons, making it very sensible for most people, and making it efficient as promotional clothing.

Promotional clothing that has a very classic vibe to it, even if that effect is very subtle, should be very well-received by today's customers. Many modern fashion customers like large sweaters and turtlenecks, which were just as trendy late in the twentieth century.

They also like elegant shirts that have something of a tailored look to them. Vintage clothing from many time periods is in style today, and promotional clothing that takes advantage of these trends in some way should really be loved. 

Many companies should also be happy to note that promotional clothing is becoming trendy in its own right today. Shirts that feature graphics and logos have always been popular, but clothing like this is being much more heavily emphasized in modern fashion.

Companies can display their logos very prominently on their promotional clothing today since it's the sort of thing that many modern fashion consumers like. They want their clothing to be distinctive. A shirt with a logo can be more interesting than a shirt that's completely unadorned. Many modern fashion consumers will wear promotional clothing very enthusiastically, making it even more effective in the process.

Every Saturday morning, millions of Americans climb out of bed and eagerly head out to garage sales. These intrepid hunters seek treasures considered trash by some, but there is no doubt about the tremendous popularity and draw of these events.

That's why garage sales, also known variously as rummage sales, yard sales, tag sales, white elephant sales and estate sales, are among the most-effective, visible fundraiser options for organizations. The overhead costs associated with garage sales are often next to nothing, especially considering the stock for sale is usually donated, and volunteers make up the willing workforce.

That's why purchasing custom-made, screen printed shirts is well-worth the small investment. Below are four reasons why getting shirts for your faithful crew of volunteers will take your fundraiser garage sale to the next level.

Lets Customers Know Who Can Help Them

No doubt you have noticed that employees at grocery and general merchandise stores wear uniforms of some kind. In fact, most persons who work with the general public in a sales or service capacity wear some type of identifying garment.

That's a huge benefit to the general public, especially for those who need assistance with finding a product or help with other issues. You can duplicate that benefit for your garage sale customers by getting custom tee shirts for your volunteer staff.

screen printed shirts and community yard sales

Tee shirts with lettering, logos and uniform colors, especially bright, cheerful hues, will serve to alert customers who might ask for pricing information or need help with loading heavy goods. Name tags alone are too small to provide the splash you want, but screen printed shirts are readily visible. You can build a lot of goodwill among shoppers when you let them know you are ready and willing to help.

Improves Event Organization and Management

Large events, such as a community-style garage sale, can make organization and planning a real challenge. That's where custom printed tee shirts can improve things immeasurably.

By having volunteers wear matching tee shirts, you will immediately be able to recognize your crew from a distance and know who is doing what at a moment's notice. This will prevent a lot of fruitless and frantic searching around a crowded sales site and save you time when you need to find someone.

In addition, you can go a step further and use color schemes to help identify various roles. For example, you may want to provide cashiers with lime green shirts and your loading crew with red shirts. The specifics are really up to you, but color-coding staff will help make your sale go more smoothly from a management perspective.

Increases Event Security

In today's environment, security and safety are "must haves", and you can't afford to let your guard down at a large, community garage sale. Providing volunteers with event tee shirts can help increase security levels on several levels.

First, any would-be criminals will be immediately alerted to the fact that staff are in close proximity and are watching their activity. This can discourage the bad guys from attempting anything that might compromise the security of the sale.

Second, customers can also know how to get help quickly in case something unforeseen happens. For example, if there is a medical emergency, it is comforting to know that a volunteer can be quickly located so an ambulance can be called.

Doubles as a "Thank You" to Volunteers

Last, but not least, custom screen printed shirts are a great way to tell your volunteers, "thank you." Shirts provide a tangible reward for those who make your sale possible, and they also are lasting reminders of the hard work and dedication involved. You can bet that a tee shirt will be a much-appreciated token of your esteem for a job well-done.

If you are looking for screen printed tee shirts or any other type of custom apparel, be sure to contact EmbroidMe San Diego today. We are your "go-to" custom apparel company and can provide what you need to help make your event a huge success.

Going on a mission trip is one of the most exciting and enlightening experiences anyone can embark on. Leaving your comfort zone, learning new skills, and doing something that really matters are important parts of your spiritual life, but none of that can happen without a lot of planning ahead of time. In fact, one of the most difficult parts of planning, organizing, and running a successful mission trip is keeping everyone together and bringing them back together after splitting up into smaller teams. The more crowded your airports, bus stations, and local streets are along the way, the harder it is to keep track of your group.

Keeping Track of Your Mission Trip Members

The further you take your mission trip from home, whether you're going across the state or across the world, the more important it is to make sure that no one gets lost or separated in a place they're unfamiliar with. This is especially important for youth group mission trips no matter what distance you travel. You can use a variety of tools and technologies to track group members but the best approach is good old-fashioned line-of-sight. If you can see every member of your group, you can regather them easily.

How do you keep track of everyone even in a bustling crowd? The key is to make every member of your group visually distinctive and easy to identify as one of your teammates. 

mission trip custom embroidered shirts hats

Bright Custom Embroidered Shirts

Mission trip groups have been figuring out how to stay together during travel for decades, likely much longer, and distinctively colored matching clothing has always been one of the best ways to quickly visually identify every member of the group and fetch them from wherever they might have wandered off to. Rather than trying to wear all the same color and winding up with eighteen different shades of 'bright blue' that will still blend with the crowd, your best approach is to get your trip group a set of matching custom shirts.

If your mission trip has a logo, title, theme, or mission statement that you've been using throughout the planning and fundraising phases, this is the perfect opportunity to keep on running with your theme by emblazoning it on your shirts. If you don't have a logo or a few important words assigned to your trip, go with the name of the church or work together as a group to design the shirts you all want to wear. By choosing a solid-color shirt with a modest embroidered image, you can all travel as a matching group while remaining semi-formal and respectful of the people you meet and your hosts at the trip destination.

Matching Travel Hats

When on a mission trip, there will be a lot of instances where hats should be removed. In sister churches, visiting host families, and showing respect for the things that matter to others. However, when you're walking together outside, moving through a busy airport, or taking a crowded bus, nothing makes it easier to identify each other like distinctive and matching hats. Brightly colored hats can allow you to identify stray members of the flock even in very tightly packed situations where shirts can be hard to spot.

If your mission is taking place outside, like building houses or digging wells, baseball caps, bucket hats or even stylish wide-brimmed hats to keep the sun off. If you're going somewhere cold, it might be more appropriate to get a set of matching soft beanies instead to keep everyone's heads and ears warm while simultaneously making them much easier to spot. Hats can also be embroidered with the mission trip or church logo, bringing greater unity to the group and making them more identifiable.

Planning a successful mission trip is all about looking into the future and determining where you will need preparation before you depart. By planning to make everyone easy to spot in a crowd with custom matching shirts and/or hats, you can significantly reduce the hassle and worry of moving in a group through crowded environments.

Promotion with Custom T-shirts

// posted by Cam Schultz

Apr 18

The great thing about promotional custom t-shirts is that once they're given out or sold, they keep marketing your product passively for as long as the people continue to wear them. People will often take t-shirts that you hand out, and they will even buy them under many different circumstances as well. Here are a few surprisingly powerful ways you can use shirts to promote your business.

Free T-shirts are Like a Drug

If you can in any way, at any time, convince someone that you will be giving them a t-shirt that can be construed as "free," then this it's hard to overstate the kind of pull this has on people. Even if you do it in a way that's as efficient for your business as possible, it will help. For example, you could make it so that you give out the shirt only when customers decide to sign on to a newsletter or reach a certain milestone in purchases or decide to join some yearly subscription.

If people think that they're getting something for free, they will often go out of their way to make sure that this is what happens.  And then at that point, you have free advertising going forward.


People Go Crazy for Contests

Another way you can give out shirts that won't break the bank and will make it so that you are making the best use of all resources available to you is giving out a shirt in a contest. That way, you get the best of both ends, basically. Giveaways can generate a ton of publicity pretty much regardless of their scale.

Nothing makes people's ears perk up quite as fast as "giveaway contest." It's just baked into human nature. We're hardwired to look for deals. You can share these kinds of contests just about anywhere you want, as well. Or, even better, you can share them absolutely everywhere.  Meaning, you can share them on Twitter, on Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and everywhere else that you want, depending on what your product is.

That's one side of it. The other side of it is that once you've spent the money on a shirt to give away, promoting your product or service while doing so, the shirt itself can have your brand logo and message, and it will be a walking billboard from then on out. The more you do this, the more that you'll benefit from it. Plus, everything will synergize because, if you keep doing these contests on a regular basis, both the shirt and the person who received the shirt will end up being a sort of free passive marketer for you.

Plus, this person will likely sing your praises because of their experience. They'll also often talk about the giveaways with their friends and acquaintances, long after the last contest they were involved in is over. This will go round and round and add up to a lot of extra traffic for you.

Don't Forget the Special Events

Another important thing to consider is that you can make shirts specifically for certain events. So, if you're doing something promotional for a particular event your company is running, you can create a shirt to commemorate it, and this can be its own kind of promotion. This helps because people often feel a sense of pride about going to just about anything. Even if it might not seem like people would be highly excited about a particular event, you might be surprised about how those shirts might move and how promotional they can be for the event and for your company both before and after.

Custom T-shirts

T-shirts are inexpensive and fantastic for all ages. You can customize them with your VBS theme. Most VBS publications have clipart and logos you can purchase and then use on things like t-shirts and we can do that. There are many ways to use promotional t-shirts in your VBS. Each class can have their own color t-shirt. If you divide up into teams your team colors would be a great place to start. You may be on a limited budget and unable to provide shirts for each child consider having them made for the leaders.

Customized products for VBS

Embroidered Shirts

Embroidered shirts, such as polo shirts, are very professional looking. Everyone will know who the staff and teachers are during VBS with customized shirts. The pastor needs one of course. Providing the teachers with personalized shirts will make them feel special and provide a sense of unity.

Customized Hats

Hats can be just plain fun and everyone likes them. They can be used in so many ways during VBS. Personalized embroidered hats can be used in place of t-shirts to mark teams, classes or other groups. Leaders can have one type of customized hats and kids another. Hats can be used to pin awards on as well. Let the kids work towards earning a hat embroidered with their name.

Custom printed bags are a great way to keep kids organized during the week. They can use them to carry their Bible, activity sheets and whatever they make back and forth. No loose papers lying around the church. Have bigger bags custom printed with the theme name and the teacher's name and help them to stay organized as well.
