Shirts And Hoodies.


I noticed the thread on job site signs is active again, and I thought I would share what we did for a little advertising. Cost wasn't much, and if things are going well next year, maybe we will give away hoodies. New hats will be here in a few weeks.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


Local....36 shirts and hoodies was a little over 5 bills. Probably cheaper online, but I try to trade local. Hats kill us....much cheaper online, but I still buy local and get them embroidered....36 for 3 bills, quality hats. Cheap ones online, embroidered, are $4 each, if you buy a 1000 or so.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


J,

Call me a cynic, but be a little careful about who you hand out gear to like that, especially if the company name is on the back.

With the way those are designed, John Q. Public will assume that whomever is wearing one is your employee. If somebody wearing one gets stupid in a bar, for example, it has the possibility of reflecting poorly on your company.

Just something to keep in the back of your mind.

BTW, the shirts and hoodies look great.

They are not for give aways Ron, and you are right. If I gave hoodies away next year, they would have the small logo only. Heck....this could be my last year before the son takes over..and I promise you he will be too cheap, or broke to do it.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


You guys are a riot....I can't imagine wearing someone's "colors" if I have my own....I really like the BuildBlock tee shirts, and was thinking about trying a new design, but a lot of you know that what you see is what I have always had.....and I do not wear the BuildBlock shirts any longer...since we ain't getting along to well these days.

I'm with ya, I can't imagine wearing someone else's gear. Even if it is just a T, or jacket. Although I do wear whatever hat I grab first.

I wear manufacturers jackets and hoodies, but I always have my T underneath. I have some hoodies with my stuff on it but I need some new ones, the old ones are just too dirty.

I wouldn't wear a direct competitor's "colours", but having a shirt or hat from different people or places is kinda neat. Can be good conversation starters.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


I have a ton of hoodies, sweatshirts, tee's tanks and this year some nice polo's. They make up my work cloths. Too expensive to give them away to people who mught not ever wear them. I save them for workers and those who I know will wear it. All good quality Russel stuff.
