2. Shirts Unite Culture: The primary impact of free shirts hits your company first. Your employees, co-workers and volunteers spend a huge portion of their life investing into what your organization is doing. Shirts unite the culture visually and tangibly. It gives reference for who is on the team and “who can join the team”. A high quality, super soft custom shirt reinforces that value of the efforts of the employees.

3. Individuals Trust Brands: Long standing social structures and economies are in the midst of disruption. As the world continues to change, individuals are increasingly putting their trust in brands that provide the best innovations in their field. Shirts give those brand trusters the opportunity to share the story, necessity and service of the brand to others. This is one of the most powerful ways to proliferate word-of-mouth referrals.

4. Shirts Communicate Value: The service your organization provides is valuable to your community. While some people may be able to feel the impact of that service physically, many can’t. A quality shirt gives individuals a physical and lasting representation of your brands value. Every time they don the shirt, they are reminded of their experience with you and the emotional connection they have to your organization.

5. Shirts are for All People: With the advent of social media, companies are now appealing to consumers on a global level. Finding ways to connect with such a broad audience can prove difficult. Few things cross cultural, economic and gender boundaries as much as a shirt does. Your team’s investment in a quality custom shirt has a lasting impact for all people.
