Tree & Leaf Clothing has been in existence since October of 2005. Prior to starting this business, John Milner and I had very little to no experience in screen printing let alone knowledge of the ability and power a mere t-shirt has. I am rarely given the opportunity to expound on just why a t-shirt is one of if not the best advertising method. Here are a few factors that have readily reiterated themselves to me since I've been in the t-shirt business. My family has owned a graphic design firm since 1952, and I've been around every type of advertising available. I am convinced that t-shirts are the most effective and price efficient form of advertising available.
T-shirts last longer.
When deciding what media to use for your next advertising campaign consider how long your advertisement will be publicly visible. For a 1/4 page ad you'll be paying about $400 per ad run in a weekly publication. You could take one weeks worth of advertising ($400) and get approximately 50 one color front and back t-shirts at Tree & Leaf. The advertisement in the newsprint may only last a month, however it is safe to say that the t-shirts can be worn for over a year, with a print size of 13"x15".
T-shirts are conversation starters.
Those same 50 shirts you purchased will undoubtably be seen throughout your local area if not outside your state. Depending on the demographic of t-shirt wearer, you're shirt could be seen by thousands of people annually. In many situations, your advertisement can become much more than just a print, but a conversation starter. There is no one better to talk about your company, event, or website than an active consumer within your business and wearer of your t-shirt. Small talk and personality go a long way in advertising and t-shirts open dialogue.
People WANT t-shirts.
If you decide to use your shirts as a money maker, you can easily charge double the cost of goods. If you decide to use your shirts as a giveaway promotion, you will never run short of individuals willing to accept and wear a free t-shirt. We've all seen people fight over t-shirts at sporting events and concerts - the masses want free t-shirts.
