What do you do? Why custom hoodies?
What I can do for you, is I can set you up with personalized hoodies.
You’re going to see hoodies all over the city and you’re going to realize in Ottawa, as you know, 10 1/2 out of 12 months in the year, we can wear hoodies. We’re a hoodie town, and marketing has changed. People are becoming more and more casual.
What we’re going to do for you is we’re going to get your brand out there in a non-threatening way for all kinds of people to see.
I can take your logo that you’ve got on your website, Instagram or your facebook page. I can put that on the front, I can put a slogan on the back. We can make it all work together.
We can do that for you, for a great price that’s tough to beat.
What kind of hoodies can you do? What sizes do they come in? What are they made out of?
You can get them in 100% cotton, 100% polyester, or a blend of the two.
You can get full-zip or pull over hoodies. We’ve got both styles.
We can make your hoodie for the little ones or the not so little ones. We routinely make child sized hoodies (size 8, 10, or 12) and yes we have made definitely made more than one XXL Hoodie for biggest fans.
You can get your logo embroidered, or we can also do what’s called sublimation, which is a mix of embroidery and screen print. Or, we can do just screen printing for you as well, if you have a more detailed graphic that you want to make work.
If you’re in the local Ottawa area, I can show you some examples.
The best example I give you is this. You’ve got a restaurant here. People know about it if they drive by it. People in other parts of the city, they’re missing out on the hidden gem that you are.
And you’re only hidden because they’re not going up to sites that critically review restaurants – they’re not going out to blogs to find other places to eat. They want to see it. They want to find out about it.
This is the cheapest form of advertising you can do. You’re going to get out there.
There’s a local restaurant here in Ottawa and they sell hoodies to advertise their restaurant for $70 a hoodie. Not only is it a chance for you to buy them, at a great price, but a chance for you to sell them, make some money for your restaurant, and someone else is going to pay to advertise your product.
And with that, you can give them to people who have supported you in various ways, or people who have been involved in your restaurant. It’s a great way to say thank you to people .
Don’t just give them a bottle of wine which has been consumed by the end of the night, Give them a hoodie. They’re going to wear it around for years until they wear it out.
And every time they wear it, they’re advertising your product. And every time they put it on, they’re going to be reminded of your business and are more likely to come back here to eat again.
What about t-shirts. Can you guys do t-shirts?
Yup, I can do t-shirts for you. I can do hoodies, t-shirts and beyond. The reason why I say hoodies, instead of t-shirts, is that t-shirts often get covered up by hoodies. T-shirts – people wear underneath things. You want people to see what’s going on.
So when people go to a restaurant, they take their jackets off, and you can see their hoodie.
In the fall, people are just wearing their hoodie out and about. and that’s what they’re going to see. They’re going to see your product being advertised.
Whether they’re downtown or they’re uptown wherever they’re walking around, they’re going to see your product advertised all over the city.
And they just paid to advertise it
The minimum order of 20 hoodies seems like a lot. I don’t have 20 employees that I want to thank.
No, you probably don’t have 20 employees that you want to thank right now, but I’m sure you can think of a few people you’d like to get one. You’re going to have one yourself. And, it’s nice to be able to sell a few, and it’s nice to have a few on hand. And you realize pretty quickly that 20 goes by really quick.
How complex can the logo be?
As complex as you like, but not everything can be embroidered.
If it’s really complicated , for instance someone’s face, you wouldn’t want to embroider that because it wouldn’t look right. So we’d go with sublimation or with screen printing, and we can mix part of the logo into being embroidered.
So we could have right across the top, your business name embroidered at the top and a caricature of your team underneath would be done through sublimation.
And, I think that’s a great gift for your next team meeting or family reunion.
What colours do you have?
We have all different colours. A lot of people like to mix-and-match the colour of the inside of the hood with the colour of the outside of the hood.
You can change the laces, all different styles. The style is yours. Whatever your vision is for it, I can make that happen. And if you’re not sure exactly what your vision is, I can give you a few ideas.
Are you able to match the colour of your hoodie with the exact colour of my logo?
I am somewhat limited by the different fabrics, but I will make sure is that I find a colour of fabric that compliments your logo.
So your logo might be a specific blue, I may not have that exact shade of blue, so we might consider putting your logo on a charcoal grey colour or on a black hoodie so your logo will look identical for what it is online or wherever else you’re already advertising.
What’s your return policy?
Returns haven’t been an issue because before I order anything, I’ll make sure that you approve it. But, if there’s been a mistake made on my end, I’ll take care of it. I’ll make sure that it’s done right in the way that we both agreed upon.
What do you need from me?
All I need from you is colours you’d like and if you’re not sure about colours, I can come up with a few suggestions.
If you have a specific logo, send that through to me. If you don’t have a specific logo, we can come up with one together. I’ll come up with one and give you a few different ideas.
I’m in the Ottawa area. Can I see a few samples? How long does a meeting take?
For sure, you can see a few samples, and I will only need about ten minutes of your time.
It’s pretty straight forward: price, timeline, show them a few samples – full zip, and a pull over. I can leave a sample of a hoodie, and come back for it in a few days.
Sometimes, other people just listen into the conversation. I was chatting at a gym and a guy came over after his workout: my wife’s a teacher at a school. Every year, they order 100 hoodies for their ski club. Do you do schools? Absolutely, I do schools.
Who would want a hoodie?
Who wouldn’t? (No, seriously.)
- Corporate retreats or workshop
- It’s very outside the box advertising for most restauraunts.
- Dance studios
- Martial Arts clubs
- Any sports club or team
- Summer camp,
- Perfect for sleep over camps – everyone is sitting by a fire. What do they want? They want to throw on their hoodie. Hundreds of kids go through your camp, every two weeks, and they’re all buying souvenirs. Imagine if they had your brand
- Bands and concerts. Local musicians, groupies.
If you look at society now, if you look at people getting tattooed, everyone wants things to be personalized.
Not everyone wants to wear a cookie-cutter hoodie that they bought at the local big box store. They want to wear something specific. So, for instance, you eat at a local pizza place and you go there every single day, you’re invested in them. When you travel, you wear that. Because that’s a part of your lifestyle.
