If you have been selected to be in charge of a tournament or if it is something that you enjoy doing, selecting the best golf tournament shirts for your outing or event is vital to how the participants will remember your event. Keep in mind that you will not be able to please everybody, however, in a perfect world that would be the goal.
Before looking for the golf tournament shirts for your event, you need to have completed your budget. I know that sometimes takes the fun out of it! However, depending on the golf events goals, selecting the proper golf shirts could literally make or break the event and the bottom line.
This is where many charity golf events need to do a balancing act. They want to give their participants the best garments. However, the goal is to raise money. If you go really el cheapo, then the players feel slighted and may not play in the event the following year. If the most expensive shirt is selected, then the overall amount of money donated is very small or none at all.
So what goes into the price of golf tournament shirts? Many people who have always played in tournaments and never actually have had to run one simply do not understand the juggling act that goes on to satisfy everyone’s goals.
Of course it goes without saying that you have the raw cost of the shirt. This can vary from under ten dollars to as much as you would care to spend depending on the type of event that you are holding. The price will depend on the type of material in which the shirt is made. You can still purchase a regular cotton shirt for cheap. However, many of the new technical performance materials have come down in price as well and you may be surprised that they fit into your budget.
Since you are giving away golf tournament shirts, it would only make sense to place your logo on it to promote your golf tournament when the shirt is worn year round. Embroidered golf shirts are a popular choice to place your company or charity logo on the garment. An embroidered golf shirt actually has the logo sewn onto the shirt. The possibilities of colors are endless and embroidery projects a high quality image. There is typically a setup fee for a first time order on a logo. There could also be an additional small charge of digitizing your logo if it had not previously been done.
Silk screen event shirts are another option that you have. Many people think that silk screening a shirt is cheaper than embroidery on a shirt. This simply just depends on the number of colors that you are planning to silk screen. The set up charges will vary depending on how many colors or screens that have to be made to produce the logo. Keep in mind if you silk screen the date on the shirt new screens will have to be made every year and with many colors, that can be costly.
