Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


That think painting shirt is awesome - real branding for sure.

Mine are so basic I'm ashamed to post, but here goes...

I think I paid about 10 ea. for the new sweats - jerzees brand super sweats.

My puzzle logo is supposed to be four different colors so the guy gave me a discount or so he's says

Still waiting on the colored version...

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


Online...I am way too cheap to spend three to four times the amount locally. I get them from here: www.queensboro.com/

And they are really good quality.

I have mine made locally. I buy the shirts and drop them off at the ladies house. She has them ready by the end of the day. Most of my work shirts are polo, good luck doing that online....

The polos are nice, I posted a picture but dont know what happened. I will try to fix it. They can be a little itchy in the warmer weather.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


I get mine locally. I use the sport-tec athletic polos (actually looked in the closet at the tag!) With the logo stitched in. I normally can't stand the feeling of polo's, but these are wicked comfortable. They hang loose, and stay cool in the heat. I actually prefer to wear them over my T's.
Not much worse than showing up to a clients with pit stains.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


I just bought 36 t-shirts, a dozen long sleeve shirts, a dozen hoodies (yes Nick you may have one), a dozen windbreakers, 2 melton jackets and one leather jacket for myself. I was just around 2k for everything, $ 100.00 or so was set up fees for the logo.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


They are conversation starters and branding for sure. I have received lots of leads from people seeing our shirts , hats etc. I know because they tell me and then they want one. I like to have fun with my designs but always remain loyal to my logo and colors. My community knows I ride because of my bike which is also branded and I ride out and about with my gear on. I have my painter biker logo on my trucks and trailer and its a big conversation starter which often leads to work! Is it overkill...I think not its how I make my living.

Customers love it when they get a gift after a job and most are very inclined to wear them whether out and about or doing yard work but either way guess whos name is being branded and seen thinkpainting...

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


We have ours done local. Hats and Polo's. I never wear company shirts, I used to, my leads do though. I am getting some hoodies made, good idea. I will wear that. Always where a company hat, camouflage for hunting and give aways to subs. They always wear the camos. Have to get good stuff made to make people wear them. Underarmour royal blue, pro style fitted with HBA logo on the back and ours on the front, or Realtree camo with the same.

Re: Shirts And Hoodies.


About 10 years ago i had some shirts and sweats made up using
Jerzee's 29m, i still have and wear them and they have been through hell. Really a durable quality material and recommend them.
