Reasons Why You Should Acquire Custom Apparel for Your Business
Being in the business sector in this day and age, it is not enough to just make enormous profits. Societal impact and image have become part and parcel of doing business. What was the in thing yesterday is old fashioned today and customizing apparels has become not only a necessity but also ideal. We are therefore going to look at the reasons as to why this is actually necessary and what impact it has on the business.
The first reason for customizing business attires for your business is branding. It enables you to sell out the image of the business to the world. It affects how your customers will relate to your business. Well customized apparels that perfectly embody your brand is a very efficient marketing tool that should not be overlooked. By wearing the apparels, the employees are automatically appointed ambassadors of the company wherever they go.
Credibility is next in line as to why you need custom apparels for your business. Potential customers often feel that a company is somewhat real when they are served by company employees wearing similar apparels with the company's logo artistically printed on them. They speak volumes that would take a lot of time in explaining. They get to draw curious people who will definitely want to know about the business. They are commonly referred to as walking billboards which are very efficient if you are to reach out to many people.
Thsirt Printing 101: Washing Out The Stencil
As soon as you wet the screen you will see a "latent" image of your design begin to emerge in the emulsion. Do not force it, be gentle. The emulsion should start to look lighter and thinner, eventually washing out. You should be able to see this happen and watch closely as you only want to spend the amount of time washing the screen out as is necessary to get the uncured emulsion out of the mesh. Once you can see that your entire stencil area is free of uncured emulsion, go to a wide, sheeting spray action with the water. Rinse both sides with a flooding, sheeting action running down the screen. This will help remove any scum left behind from the slightly under cured emulsion on the ink well side.

More often than not you will be approached different types of people just for donning the apparels. From those who relate to the product to those that are curious to know about the business, what line of business you deal in, what goods and services are offered. This gives you the chance to be able to explain to them the nature of your business and how to acquire your goods or services. On the other hand if they are already customers they could offer invaluable feedback on your products and service delivery and probable areas that need improvement.
Thsirt Printing 101: Post Cure
Many screen printers employ a technique known as the post cure. This is often done whether or not a photo emulsion was used as block out. In general, this is done to ensure that the ink well side of the screen is fully cured. The screen is simply put back on the exposure unit, this time with the ink well side facing down toward the light source, and exposed again. The top is pulled down but the vacuum is not necessary for this. We are just making sure all of the emulsion is fully cured and hard. Dual cure emulsions may not respond to post cures.
Now the screen is ready to tape off and go to press.

The apparels also serve as uniforms for example in the case of a supermarket. This makes it easy for the customers to differentiate the employees from their fellow buyers. Good service delivery is therefore optimized.
The employees get to have a sense of togetherness every time they wear the attire. Whether it is the manager or just a mere store man, they get to have a good working relation at the workplace and even outside. The company or rather brand they represent serves as glue that binds them together. These results in a great working environment.
