Customized ties are a great finishing touch
to a uniform, as a promotional
or as a truly personalized gift.
shopping for a customized necktie,
some suggestions of what to look
- necktie - like traditional ties, you can get ties
for customization that are made from low
cost polyester or higher quality 100% silk.
Because there are no "standard"
tie width and lengths, check the dimensions
before committing to an order to ensure the
tie size will be satisfactory.
- method - customized ties can be either dyed, printed,
or woven. Chose weaving if you have a pattern,
and dyeing or printing if you are transferring
- design - many vendors will accept a PC graphics
file; others will take "camera ready"
artwork; for a fee, some will take your rough
idea and do the creative work for you
- minimums, set-up costs, turnaround time,
and shipping - compare each vendor's offering in these
areas. Most companies require a minimum number
of ties, and most charge a set-up fee and
possibly a "per color" charge.
Because ties are frequently soiled by food
and body oil, you may want to pay extra for
a stain and water resistant treatment to
keep your customized ties looking their best.
