It is human nature to want to get a great deal. We all want to be paid more for what we do and pay less for what we get, it is just a part of our DNA. A wise man once told me that it is not the discount from a clear price (such as 10% off of $5.00) that determines if you are getting a good deal, it is the price you pay at the end of the day. (using the $5 reference, did you pay $4.50 or more or less?)
During the cooler times of the year, people seek a comfort garment just like comfort food and the demand for sweatshirts and hoodies increases to fulfill that urge to be comfortable. The benefit of sweatshirts and hooded sweatshirts is that they are easy care and not in need of ironing. The puffy unfitted size goes over anything or can be worn without a clothing article under it Lanesha.
Customizing a hoodie or sweatshirt with a monogram or your first name is kind of cool, not too common and thusly a great way to make an impression at minimal cost and effort. While most buyers are not wanting to rock the fashion boat and choose to personalize their sweatshirt on the front left or right chest, I like to take a somewhat bold effort and have my name embroidered on the shoulder.
You can get a lower wholesale price if you ask for embroidery savings by using the embroiderer’s house or generic font, as they should not charge you for setup or digitizing. Digitizing of a custom font can cost as much as $100!
If you are purchasing for your family, yourself or for gifts, be sure to email or write the exact spelling so that no one is unpleasantly surprised when a nice sweatshirt has the wrong name on it. Unintentional goofs like that are expensive to fix as the garment is usually replaced and there is added shipping costs and delay. Delay is an expense in that you may be forced to pay expedited shipping and / or have to take on undesired stress by telling that special someone that their gift is going to arrive late.
Plan early, write clearly and inspect your purchase carefully just as soon as you can upon receipt. Too many buyers make the mistake of waiting until the big gift giving day and then play catch up to make things right.
