Many of our clients incorporate some sort of employee program that includes branded apparel. That’s no surprise to us, as two of the top categories for branded swag are t-shirts and outerwear.

Nevertheless, it’s always been considered a risky endeavor – “stay away from apparel” they say, ” we don’t want to mess with sizes.”

We get it. We’ve been sourcing wearables from newborn to 7XL for years – no size left behind, right?

So what’s the most efficient way to offer multiple sizes while including everyone and not being stuck with a bunch of leftovers?

An online shop.

The design can be quick and simple, or custom and robust – it’s up to you. But in general:

  1. We create your shop
  2. Your designated recipients order what they want (or…whatever you want to give them access to, because we can set limits on that)
  3. We place a bulk order (drop shipments optional) or fulfill from pre-purchased inventory stored in our warehouse

That’s it. They pick the size that works best for them, and we do the rest on your behalf.

The world is such a miraculous place when everyone wins.

Even better, you actually have a few options when considering an apparel shop. Click on the image below for a quick comparison chart between the three shop types.
