Festival Merchandising

The festival season is upon us and screen printing companies throughout the country are preparing for the short sleeve season and an influx of orders for festival merchandising and printed t-shirts. Promotional t-shirts as merchandising can be a great way for festival organisers to keep the party going well after the tents are taken down with their satisfied attendees wearing their printed t-shirts out of the gates with an “I was there” sort of pride.

Picture This…

You’re walking into a really cool house party in your super awesome [insert festival name] printed t-shirt and you hear that really cool song by [insert cool hipster band name] that reminds of you said festival and then you see someone else with the wristband from the same super cool awesome festival. No words will be needed, just a look paying tribute to your shared experience at the super awesome mega cool festival. And then they will probably say, “that is an awesome t-shirt, wish I had got one”.

Screen Printing Options

Screen printing for summer festivals and events is a popular choice for promotional t-shirts and festival merchandise because it is cost effective in large quantities and bulk orders. The best screen printing designs are simple yet effective and can include a number of colors, although it should be noted that the price will increase as the number of colors in your design do. Having said that, you don’t want to compromise on the quality of your t-shirt design because nobody will buy it and as a result there will be no knowing looks or shared experience conversations across the house party.

The process of creating an awesome product is often a complicated and detailed journey. Our goal here at Spotlight Apparel is to make that process as easy and quick as possible. Have a look at our process  below to get an idea of how we produce the quality screen prints that your company or organization desires.

Our Process

We begin with product selection where you choose the product type, style and quality suited to your specific event. We can print from your artwork or you can submit your concept to the Spotlight Apparel design department. Our trained professional designer can take your idea and develop it into a dynamic composition that is sure to impress. We will first send you a preview of how your art will look.

Once the art is submitted to you, you may approve the design for print, or you may give us a few revisions to enhance and refine the design to your liking. Once the design is approved, the art is taken to the screen department and that is where your shirt is inked.

The standard turn-around time for screen printing for summer festivals and events is around 5-7 business days. Our goal is to turn your order around as quickly as possible while still maintaining a high standard of quality.

Be sure to contact Spotlight Apparel, Inc. of Jacksonville Florida for all your screen printing for summer festivals and events.

Memorial Day – Simple Ways to Thank a Veteran

memorial_dayMemorial Day is just a few days away – this year it will be Monday, May 26. We would like to acknowledge and thank all of the brave men and women who have served our nation so valiantly and courageously through the years.

There are so many ways to help. We hope you’ll consider showing your appreciation to all of those who have served and are serving our country, no matter how you do it.


Five Simple Ways to Thank a Veteran

1. Say Thank You

Just the simple act of saying “Thank you for your service” goes a long way with veterans. Throw in a handshake too, you’re bound to see a smile on their face, which will make it all worth it.

2. Volunteer

Do something for the veterans in your community. Seriously, what’s an hour of your time for the sacrifices they’ve made? Check out for ways that you can help. At the least, drop off an anonymous letter at your local VA thanking a veteran; it will get to the right person.

3. Donate

Make a small donation today to any of the fantastic organizations out there that help veterans each and every day. There many great charities to contribute to like the Wounded Warrior Project and Disabled American Veterans.

4. Pay for Lunch

Just walk up and say “I appreciate what you are doing, this one’s on me.” Offer to pay for a veteran’s meal today. This means more than you may think.

5. Never Forget

One of the biggest things you can do is to make the most out of the opportunity you’ve been given. Our freedoms have been paved with the sacrifices of our soldiers and they did so for all of us to enjoy this great country; let’s not forget that or take it for granted.

A veteran is someone who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to and including their life. Regardless of personal political views, that is an honor and there are too many people in this country who no longer remember that fact.
