The Mass Customization Trend

Posted by Frank

Henry Ford built a car that the average worker could afford and to accomplish this he created the mass production model. Ford once said “that people could have their Model T in any color they want – so long as it’s black.” A century later, this one size fits all model doesn’t satisfy today’s customer.

Back in 1995 when I started LogoSportswear I realized that sooner or later the forces of computer design, e-commerce and digital printing would enable custom sportswear without minimums or setups. And every year since, the promise of this new business paradigm, often called Mass Customization, has grown to fruition and allows us to deliver more and more custom sportswear choices with near mass production prices and efficiency.

The mass customization trend is happening across all industries. Examples include Dell’s made-to-order “personal computers,” Mini Cooper’s mass customized cars, and you even create a custom mattress by choosing the materials, softness, dimensions, and features for a personalized experience.

The Wall Street Journal discusses the mass customization trend in article today called “The Rise of Holiday Me-tailers.”

Why Dye Sublimate Dry Performance Sportswear?

Posted by Frank

Most companies in the promotional products industry struggle with custom apparel merchandising. They lack the in-house design and production know how that enables us to offer more custom sportswear choices, without minimums and setups.

It takes apparel FOCUS to keep up with market trends such as new styles, fabrications, decoration options and online design/merchandising technologies. That is why we are considered a leader in our industry.

A big trend today in active sportswear is dry performance or moisture management apparel. Dry performance t-shirts, polos, team uniforms, etc are mostly made of polyester yarns and are engineered to wick moisture away from the skin and transport it to the outside of the fabric. These products keep you cool and dry. We offer both compression and loose, relaxed dry performance wear.

Traditional screen printing or cad printing covers fabric with ink or film, making it difficult for air or moisture to pass through. Dye sublimation printing, on the other hand, maintains a fabric’s ‘wicking’ characteristics.

When sublimation dye is placed next to polyester and heated, the polyester molecules open. The sublimation dye turns into a gas and then penetrates the fibers of the fabric when heated. After the heat is removed, the polyester molecules will close and permanently trap the sublimation dyes. The image gets indelibly transferred to the polyester garment. When the fabric cools the fibers close and permanently retain the brilliant color of the sublimation dye.

dye sublimation jerseys and sportswear

Dye sublimation is permanent and becomes part of the fabric. It makes a t-shirt or jersey a light weight, breathable feel and rich, long lasting, brilliant full color. We GUARANTEE that it won’t ever crack or peel.

One important note is that dye sublimation does have limitations in that it only works with light colored shirts and can not be used for designs that require white printing.

Team Appreciation Shout Out

Today we are celebrating Employee Appreciation Day. On behalf of our managers, we want to thank our employees for their hard work, dedication and caring attitude. You have helped make 2010 another record year.

We are bringing in lunch and offering all team members a free shopping spree from our Outlet. Each employee was also given this tackle twill decorated, hooded sweatshirt–sewn by our embroidery department to commemorate our fifteenth Anniversary.

I also wanted to share a nice testimonial for our Logo GiveBack program.

This past October 2 was LIVESTRONG Day, an event held at LiveStrong HQ and attended by staff, volunteers, partners, donors, and survivors as part of global awareness day to raise awareness and support the fight to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

LogoSportswear supplied custom fan jerseys for the event. The date 10/2 had special significance. We donated yellow and black jerseys with the numbers 10 (on the front) and 2 (on the back) to wear in support of the mission.

Posted by Frank

Fall is in the air now is a good time to be on the lookout for new custom jackets for your next outdoor events. This season our site is stocked full of fashionable custom jackets, sports jackets, and work jackets.

Though our jackets meet the highest quality standards, it’s the jacket decoration that makes your logo or design come to life. Until now we have only offered small format embroidery online design. Today we introduce a new full-back embroidery/twill option for custom jacket backs. Best of all you can design your jacket back inside our online designer.

Now you can turn your team into walking billboards–large, full-back embroidery/twill will make your jacket stand out. You can upload your logo or design and we will convert it into full back, three-dimensional embroidery. This premium process is stitch intensive and more expensive than small format but well worth the price.

There are no minimums and we eliminate any custom logo setup charge if you purchase just six of the same custom jackets. Provide embroidered jackets to your staff and show how much you care about them.
