BOURBON, MO – Imperial Headwear, the #1 headwear brand for Private and Resort golf facilities as reported by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) in their Member Survey the last 3 consecutive years, announced a brand new low minimum, quick turnaround T-shirt program designed exclusively for the golf market.

Imperial’s new T-shirt program features the following details:

  • 36 piece minimum order quantity
  • 12 piece minimum on reorders
  • 6 per style / color
  • 5-7 day turn time from approval
  • Unlimited ink colors and photographic prints same price as 1-color prints
  • Short sleeve, long sleeve and ladies silhouette options
  • 100% cotton and tri-blend fabrics

“Imperial’s T-shirts are very nice but their program is what sold me,” said Cary Cozby, PGA Director of Golf at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “Being able to reorder a dozen at a time with a 5-7 day turnaround allows me to control my inventory and replenish quickly. This is exactly the type of program golf professionals and merchandisers need to be successful in this category.”

The new T-shirts from Imperial are manufactured with a state-of-the-art printing process called Direct to Garment (DTG), which uses a modified ink jet technology instead of the traditional screen printing method. Imperial recently acquired one of the largest DTG printers in the world and will produce new program orders on this machine.

“Our new DTG printer can play a major role in helping Imperial’s customers grow their T-shirt business,” said David Shaffer, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Imperial Headwear. “Historically, custom printed T-shirts have been manufactured using a method that does not encourage smaller runs or more than a few logo colors. But DTG alleviates those restrictions and promotes ordering flexibility, which is just what golf shops need to be successful retailers.”
