Screen printing or Embroidery?
It can be hard to choose between having your apparel screen printed or embroidered
. Both styles are excellent attention getters
and can serve as great advertisement for your organization or company. To decide if you would like your apparel screen printed
or embroidered - consider your ultimate goal and audience.
If you have a large logo, lots of colors, or possibly a list of names you want to include - screen printing
is a better option for you. This might include family reunions
where you list the family names or a sporting event where you list all of the participants. Screen printing
is a bit more casual but does provide for large, eye-catching designs. Opt for screen printing
on one of our brightly
colored men's or women's tee shirts
to advertise your company. Screen printed
tees are a great way to advertise - the more you buy, the cheaper they are. Pass out tees as door prizes and give-a-ways...the more you pass out, the larger your marketing reach!
If you are looking for a more professional look, embroidery
is probably a better choice. Embroider is a bit more "dressed up" and is excellent for businesses and companies looking for a classy edge. Embroidery works well when creating dressed up uniform shirts for staff members or students. Adding embroidery to a ladies'
or men's tailored shirt
gives your company an edge over the competition.
No matter what your goal - Bender Shirts
can provide the custom apparel you need. Call us today if you have any questions!

Can I Mix and Match?
your order now matter how complicated you think it may be! Do you want to create shirts for your school...some yellow
and some white
the school's colors? That's
fine! We'll custom design a logo that complements both colors and mix and match your order. Maybe you want to do all the same color, but you want some ladies tees
and some men's tees
? Again...we can help! At Bender Shirts
- satisfaction is our number one goal.
Mixing and matching youth tees
in your order can also be done. If you are printing adult large shirts and want to throw in a few youth large tees, we can do that using the adult size logo. If you want youth size shirts that are a bit smaller (youth x-small, small, or medium) we'll need to custom design your logo to fit that size.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the product you want. Call us today if you have any questions about mix and matching your order!

How Can We Help With Arts and Crafts...
Preschool and Kindergarten classes are starting back soon and teachers must be prepared for arts and crafts, glue, play-doh, and paint. Provide custom embroidered and custom screen printed
aprons for every teacher and teacher assistant in your school. We can work with you to create a "kid friendly" design or something that represents your school mascot and colors. We offer full length aprons
with 2 pockets and an adjustable neck strap. These come in a variety of colors from red to coffee bean brown. If teachers need a smaller cover up, we also carry medium length aprons
with 3 pouch pockets and an adjustable strap. Again colors range from maroon to navy to hunter green. Finally, if your teachers just need a simple apron to house their teaching tools (scissors, pens, erasers, and a small stash of band aids) consider purchasing waist aprons
for around the classroom. These waist aprons have 3 pouch pockets and a long tie to fit all sizes. Each style of apron can be custom designed for you.

Screenprinting vs. Embroidery
Bender Shirts offers custom screen printing
and embroidery on a variety of items. We can screen print
and embroider bags, hats, tees, and jackets. When trying to decide if you should have your apparel screen printed
or embroidered - consider your objective, your company, and your product.
Some products, such as our Fleece Zip Vest
are not suitable for screen printing
. This type of material will look much more professional with an embroidered design - possibly your company's logo or mascot. Our entire line of fleece products
are available for embroidery. So, if you are searching to customize outerwear with a professional design, consider purchasing embroidered fleece.
Our tailored shirts
are also available for embroidery. If your company is looking to purchase uniform style shirts with a classy edge, opt for an embroidered design on a tailored shirt. These orders can be mixed and matched to include tailored looks for men
. Again, this type of tailored look with an embroidered design offers a professional, clean look for employees.
Are you looking to purchase shirts for a family reunion, sports team, church event, or school function? Screen printed
apparel may serve you best when purchasing for these types of events. Choose a bright colored tee
and let Bender Shirts help you customize a front and back design. Screen printed
tees offer lots of room for pictures, logos, mascots, names, and artwork. Again, these tees can be mixed and matched to offer sizes for men
, and children
. If you want a more professional look on the t-shirt, we can help you custom design embroidery.
No matter what the occasion or objective, Bender Shirts can serve you with the perfect look. Feel free to our browse our website
to find examples of both screen printed
and embroidered apparel.
