Hi everyone, I am so impressed with this site. I'm new and have been doing some research on who, what and how I can brand my logo. I'd like to brand my logo through T's, hats, and other wearables. In researching suppliers, I'm coming across some roadblocks. I'd like to try and stay local, of course American made, have an organic line, etc. I am not a screen printer or embroiderer. I am the owner of a new company with a logo I'd like to brand with different tag lines so I'll be purchasing blank items and sending them to the printers, then off to my clients who are store fronts, beach shops, and the like. In researching, I've found that I cannot purchase blank items if I am not a printer. I have to go through a printer/embroiderer. Then I read a post somewhere here that it's expensive to have a one-stop-shop, if you will. It's best to go direct and find you own suppliers. So I'm running in bit of a circle. I know exactly what lines of wearables I'd like, I'm just wondering how I can do this the right way. Yep, I'm a newbie, but I'm having a blast! Thank you for any insights!
