23 Dec How To Organise Your 2018 School Leaver’s Hoodies and Jackets
So you have decided to organise your school leaver’s hoodies for the whole year level. Being the organiser is a tough gig. What’s even tougher though, is trying to get 50 people to agree on one thing! Everyone needs to agree on colours, designs, logos, tags and hoodie styles. Your task might seem daunting but don’t worry we got your back. We are here to help you every step of the way.
To help you organise your school leaver’s hoodies for the whole year level, we have put together some tips and tricks that are going to make your life a whole lot easier.
Tip 1: Choose Your Apparel
We can print on anything, so what do you want? We have got classic hoodies, premium Hoodies and tall Hoodies, jumpers, varsity jackets, vests, soft shell jackets, long sleeve tops, polo shirts and t-shirts. Browse through our full range of apparel and choose which style suits you and your year level the most.
Tip 2: Choose Your Colour
Soooo many colours to choose from! So what colour do you want your hoodies to be? Most people go with the school colours so that they can wear their hoodies to school for the last few months of the year. We have a full-colour range including the usual school colours like blue, navy blue, black, red and maroon. Our tall Hoodies are made to order so can be any colour combination. Check out our range for the full-colour range available.
Tip 3: Designs, Logo’s, tags or nicknames
This is probably the hardest part but most enjoyable part – deciding what design and wording you want on your hoodies. We can print pretty much anything and anywhere including hoods, sleeves, front and back prints individual nic names and hashtags. You will also need to decide whether you want embroidery or screenprint. For ideas on designs, logo’s and wording check out our range of pre-designed logos.
Another option is to get someone in your year level to draw up some designs and choose the best ones. We can help with fine tuning as we offer a free graphic design service. Also, check if people want nicknames or taglines on their hoodie. You also need to choose where on the hoodie you want your designs and logos to go.
We can design your logo for you at no extra charge just send us a sample sketch or screenshot of your ideas. Contact us for more details.
Tip 4: Get the consensus
You can digitally design your hoodies in our online MT Design Lab. In the design lab, you can put together your chosen apparel, colours, logos and tags.
Now its time to show your overall designs to the class. Narrow it down to a couple of options. Then have everyone vote on which design they like best. The majority always rules so whichever design has the most votes is the design to go with.
Tip 5: Cost
Cost plays a major role in the final numbers ordered. For a free quote get in touch, and we will guide you as to the most cost-effective option. (By the way we always offer a free hoodie for the organiser for orders of 25 or more)
Tip 6: Numbers, sizes
Now that the design has been chosen, its time to take everyone’s orders. Collect the number of people that want a school leaver’s hoodie, their size and their payment. Use our size chart on our website or you can request a free sample pack with small, medium, large and an extra large hoodie to try on.
Tip 7: Make your order
So you have the design, you have the numbers, you have the sizes and you have the money. It’s time to place your order. You can place your order on our website. Once the order has come through on our side we will create a final artwork approval for you to check over making sure there are no spelling or size mistakes. Your class will have their school leaver’s hoodies within 3 to 4 weeks.
BONUS: Shipping is FREE of charge and as a thank you for being the organiser, your hoodie will also be FREE!
Tip 7: Allow plenty of time to organise your 2018 leavers jerseys?
Organising 50 people takes time and you will want your hoodies ready halfway through the school year so that you can get plenty of photos of everyone wearing them together. It takes time so get in early. We recommend that you place your order no later than June so that everyone can receive their hoodies after the winter holidays.
