Customized Neckties

Customized ties are a great finishing touch to a uniform, as a promotional business item, or as a truly personalized gift. If you're shopping for a customized necktie, here are some suggestions of what to look for:

  • 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 an image.
  • 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.
