2015 is well underway and here at Coed Monkey, we've already been able to see some trends emerging. After a great 2014 with over 65% growth in sales of Custom Printed T-Shirts/Apparel for clients around the country, we feel like we've been able to get a pretty good sense of what the market wants, and as the market has demanded a few new styles, we want to be the first to bring them to you and let you in on the "industry scoop" to help you plan for your next order, considering the 2015 Custom Printed T-Shirts Trends!
Here are the 3 biggest things we're noticing about shirts in 2015:
1. The emphasis on the Neckline/Collar.
This is for both men and women... while this might not be for 99% of the population, but A LOT of people are gravitating to a larger/wider neckline. Whether that is a V-Neck over the traditional crewneck, or the new, modern scoop/swoop neck for both guys and girls. Here are a few products that we've really seen take "market lead" in this... the links will take you to our distributor's sites, but we can print on any and every one of these shirts... just let us know what you'd like:
2. Slim-Fitting & Thinner Hoodies
A lot of people have been moving away from thicker hooded sweatshirts and moving towards a thinner, t-shirt material-based hoodie, for 2 reasons... First, it is much cheaper than the traditional thick hoodies and second, they are a lot of softer, slim-fitting and can be worn for more of the year. Here are 2 of our favorites:
We really love providing our amazing clients around the country with the softest, custom printed t-shirts to set their brands apart in their respective markets... so our best clients constantly push us to innovate so they can truly stand out from the competition.
One of our favorite new innovations has been our Signature 24 Carat Mirror Gold Ink... it's a true head-turner and something that is 100% guaranteed to make your brand or event stand out in the crowd! But instead of just telling you about it though, we decided to make a quick video so you can actually see our Signature 24 Carat Mirror Gold Ink in action:
This is perfect for special occasion t-shirts, (like if you hit a sales goal, achieve a certain # of team members, reach a special anniversary of the business, etc.). and although it might throw of the "branding" of your business by not printing your logo in the marketing-approved pantone color, everyone will love that you decided to take a risk on something truly remarkable- for that amazing achievement.
If you're interested in ordering our 24 Carat Mirror Gold Ink on your next custom t-shirt order, you can easily just mention it in the "Additional Info" section of the Checkout Process, or mention it to your Coed Monkey Order Rep and they can help you!
Please let us know if you had any questions, because we wanna make sure you look amazing in soft, custom printed t-shirts (that fit your budget!) and turn heads!
No matter the size of order, we know that price is always something that's a big part of the decision process, when someone is thinking through where to order custom printed t-shirts. Fortunately, ever since we started 13+ years ago, we have been able to offer very competitive prices that compliment our high-level of customer care, but we are still always looking for ways to help our customer save money on their orders.
Since we get asked so frequently for ways to save money on large orders, our founder Bill decided to hop in front of the camera to outline one BIG money saving technique that some of our largest clients use. And while this video may best apply to someone that is ordering hundreds or thousands of t-shirts per year, another simple way to cut costs is to relook at how many ink colors or logos you are having us print on your t-shirts... along with possibly choosing a different brand.
Our Coed Monkey Brand Reps are always here to help, so please let us know if you had any questions, because we wanna make sure you look amazing in soft, custom printed t-shirts (that fit your budget!)
Since American Apparel's last round of bankruptcy, and acquisition by Gildan, America has been wondering what the future of American Apparel will be... and what all of this means for Screen Printing on American Apparel t-shirts.
