Fall Sport blog cover image

With the approach of the fall season, not only are kids back in school, but fall sports are starting. And that means there is a big demand for:

  • customized jerseys
  • warm ups
  • fan wear
  • and now even customized sports balls!

So how can your business meet the demand for custom made jerseys and related clothing this season?

More than that, how can you give your customers more unique offerings and upsell them on premium looks?

Customized Jerseys

Every year, sports teams (whether the Profesional, Minor League, College, local schools, clubs, etc..) are in need of new, customized jerseys. It’s a standard of team sports, and while some of your customers may just want the same old colors, fonts, and layouts that they’ve always gotten, many schools and clubs are looking for ways to stand out. For example, the Oregon Ducks College Football team always tries to push the envelope with their flashy colors and unique number styles.

As a garment decorator, you can utilize the latest, fashion forward materials and styles to give your customers that unique look they’re wanting. And while it’s true that specialized materials come with a price, many teams and clubs are willing to pay that little extra to stand out from the crowd. But if you never offer it, they may not even know it’s an option.

So what are some of the options for giving your customers a premium looking jersey?

What about going beyond the plain, solid color vinyl for your names and numbers?

Fan Wear

If you’re already customizing and decorating jerseys for the team, why not offer to make some fan wear?

Does the team have a mascot? Create a 1 color or multi-color transfer of it to put on t-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts, hats, and more.
