DECORATED APPAREL

In line with SOBO’s core values, we help clients make the most creative decisions when it comes to their branding. Not only are we masters of product development, but full blown fashionistas as well.

The creative possibilities for apparel are endless, but we wanted to show off some of our favorite decorative techniques. From screen-printing, to transfers, to embroidery, we can do it all.

Don’t see what you’re looking for? Don’t worry, we can handle that too.

Don’t know where to start? Reach out! Our SOBO representatives will work with your branding and budget to recommend the right products and techniques for you. We start by recommending apparel you actually want to wear. From there, we guide you through the decoration process and find the right solution for your brand. The result? SWAG with Style.

FAQs

How quickly can I get my apparel?

The standard lead time for apparel is about 7-10 business days plus time in transit.

What if I need my apparel sooner?

Rush pricing is available. However, rush fees and expedited freight costs add up quickly.

How much will my order cost?

Pricing for custom apparel is dependant upon the quality of the garment, type and number of decoration locations and colors (this doesn’t affect all decoration methods). Fortunately your dedicated SWAG specialist will work with any budget and simplify the process for you to produce a final product we know you will love!

Are there minimum order amounts?

While we hate limitations, certain printing processes are more difficult and a minimum order amount is required.

What file format do you need my logo in?

All files should be in vector format. Vector format means that all contents of the file are outlined. These files usually end in a .ai or .eps. Not only will this ensure your art is print ready, but it will allow our design team to provide a mock up.
