Brooklyn, NY, November 04, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Every school has a theme, color, or uniform that represents them and makes them stand out over other schools. Some schools choose to go with an actual uniform, such as navy slacks and a light blue button downs. While other schools may choose to use school logos printed on t-shirts, hoodies and other apparel that students are allowed may wear in addition to their dress code policy. Typically schools that choose to get the printed gear, pick one day a week where students are told to wear the school "spirit-wear."
A good example of this type of school is Cavallaro High School (IS 281) in Brooklyn New York. They turned to their local Brooklyn Screen Printing
company and asked them to design something along the lines of a baseball tail, using their colors (black and yellow). The design came out to be pretty neat and was printed on t-shirts, hoodies and zip up sweatshirts. Students were told that Fridays are School Spirit-Wear days and that it is suggested to wear this apparel on Fridays. By doing this, the school was able to fund raise some money for the activities such as school trips. They, for example, order a t-shirt for $6.00 and sell it to the kids for $10.00, leaving $4.00 per shirt. Looking at the single shirts it's not so much, but when it's multiplied by 100 shirts that's another $400 to the pot.
Regardless of whether or not the school has a "School Spirit-Wear Day" or is just ordering shirts for a school trip, printing school apparel is a great business. There are plenty of schools out and around the New York City area, but it doesn't have to be limited to this area. Imagine if 1,000 of the more than 8,000 schools in New York City place an order for 100 shirts each - that's 100,000 shirts right there.
