3 Reasons NOT To rent Your Screen Printed or Embroidered Apparel

So why are so many companies moving away from uniform rentals?

Let us explain why we convert so many every month.

1st let’s start with fees…. Uniform rental companies charge re-occurring monthly fee for each employee’s rented embroidered and/or screen printed uniform piece along with many additional surcharges and other fees. The biggest expense uniform rental companies charge is the fee for not returning the uniforms when your employee is no longer employed with you.

Let’s face it, now-a-days employee’s come and go more often than they stay, and when this happens you’re most likely not getting the items back. This is where you pay big money to your uniform rental company much more than the items are worth.

The benefits of owning your apparel is you pay only once for the uniform and it’s much less expensive than renting.

2nd Lead time…. Typical lead time for your custom printed and/or custom embroidered apparel from uniform rental companies is 3-4 weeks.

Last but not least….. most uniform companies don’t have any embroidery or screen printing options and will typically contract companies like us (Bigcitysportswear.com) to embroider or custom print them, this just increases the charge to you.

So the question becomes, why not remove the middle man, save money, and buy your custom printed & embroidered apparel directly from a supplier like BigCitySportswear.com?

Better Custom Shirt Printing For the Same Price – Literally

In a world where 100s of custom shirt printing companies are at your fingertips, which should you pick and which should you avoid?

Whether it’s bad customer service, outrageous prices, or late deliveries, choosing the right provider can be the difference between huge unneeded headaches and a wonderful buying experience.

Big City Tees repeatedly shows it cares more about its customers by doing more, and while numerous examples could be cited, like our 10% competitor price discount guarantee or exceptional email & phone support, one HUGE thing separating us from other custom shirt printers are the extra coats & highlights we do for all our custom shirt printing.

Did that not sound impressive? Let me explain:

If you the consumer wanted a 2 color print, whether that’s one colored shirt and one ink color, or plain shirt and 2 color inks, (Like having a white shirt with a black logo or vice versa)

Normally, 2 screens would be used for each color and/or design.

Big City Tees however, would use 3 and at NO extra cost. Other companies typically wouldn’t do it at all, and if they did – they’d hit YOU with the bill! (Costing more per shirt on your order.)

The third screen holds a lighter texture of the design and is applied as a first undercoat to the custom printed shirt. The outer layer holds a thicker layer, acting both as a second coat and a highlighting for the design!

One run of the hand across your shirt and you’ll feel the difference – the thicker paint literally stands off your clothing 3Demensionally and will last longer through the wear of life & washer.

Amongst the host of other service providers, we hope to make choosing the best option an easy & enjoyable experience. The same value for our customers is expressed across all our services, whether you need a rush order of custom printed shirts, embroidery, promotional products or banners, we go further, faster for you!
