Promotional product creation company Tee Compressed is offering clients a service that few others can provide—compressed promotional apparel.
These are items, like a T-shirt, tote bag, or towel, which have been compressed into an exponentially smaller, unique shape, in many cases one that has relevance to the client's business.
A musical instrument retailer, for example, can have their promotional T-shirts compressed into the shape of a tiny guitar, complete with an insert card shaped like a guitar that offers all of the company's contact information.
The process is relatively simple. First, a custom printed promotional item is created according to the client's specifications. Oftentimes, this is a screen printed version of a company's design or logo. If a client needs help with artwork, Tee Compressed has an entire design department that's ready to help.
Next, the apparel is compressed into one of over 800 stock shapes of the client's choice—or even an entirely custom shape—that are all a fraction of the apparel's original size. Lastly, the item or piece of apparel is inserted into durable shrink wrap with a full color printed insert card.
Although this process of compressing T-shirts has been around for about 20 years now, only a handful of companies have the technological equipment necessary to produce compressed T-shirts. The fact that few promotional companies are able to produce compressed promotional apparel makes the items a unique and memorable option for marketing purposes.
Any size shirt can be compressed into any kind of shape, like popular candy packages, or small logos. In addition to T-shirts, Tee Compressed also offers clients the opportunity to purchase compressed tote bags, towels, and other kinds of apparel, just so long as the items are made out of 100% cotton, because cotton is necessary for the compressing process to go smoothly. According to Elise Harding, owner of Tee Compressed, "The large variety of offerings makes compressing versatile for any company or organization."
Tee Compressed, located in Carlsbad, CA, provides custom compressed T-shirts to businesses and organizations all over the country.
