Red And Blue ShoesI mustache you a question!Everyone knows October is breast cancer awareness month, but have you heard ever of November being called Movember? October being associated with breast cancer awareness gets a lot of attention from people all over the globe but Movember, not so much. During the entire month of November, men compete all over the world growing out their mustaches in support of prostate cancer and all other male cancers.Instead of having a ribbon of a certain color as a symbol for the month, mustaches are used to build the awareness. Here at Broken Arrow Wear Custom T-shirt Printing and Embroidery, we are also supporting Movember. Come see our sales crew and our “mustaches” throughout the month and order some screen printed mustache shirts!During November we are offering an awesome deal on everything from embroidery, screen prints, digital prints, or ANYTHING else!

Hello Everyone! This is my very first blog post….like ever! I’ve not posted a personal blog, Broken Arrow blog and barely even tweet. This will be a new experience for me, but I am really looking forward to trying this whole blogging thing.I have volunteered to hijack Broken Arrow’s blog for awhile to see what I could contribute to our readers. I have worked at Broken Arrow since I was around 15 years old – starting with the Quality Control position. I was the last person to make sure the garments going to the customer were PERFECT!! Talk about a stressful job!! Then, when I was about 18 and graduated high school, I was moved to the office to assist in any task needed from helping customers to filing paperwork. When I went off to college at the University of Iowa, Broken Arrow made it possible for me to work from there emailing customers on evenings and weekends. Finally, 8 year after I started working here, I graduated college and started full time. Boy was I excited to not have the stress of finding a job after school. I worked in sales, then became the sales manger, then art manager, then IT manager, then manager of whatever we needed. That brings me to today. My current job at Broken Arrow is General Manager.I will be talking about what is happing here at the big BA (we call it that sometimes- short for Broken Arrow of course) and in the t-shirt world. Hopefully you will find the blogs interesting and useful. If you have topic ideas, want to know something about the company, or anything at all, let me know! We have the most amazing staff so I will probably talk about them also! To see some of the fun things we are doing, check out our Facebook page online at https://www.facebook.com/BrokenArrowWearTs.Here are some pictures of me so you can put a face to the name (My name is Kortni by the way).This is the staff and I giving a Thumbs Up to Jeans Day, which aims to raise awareness of sexual assault across Iowa. I am the one in the Pink.This is Paul (our production manager) and I recording our newest radio commercial! I’ll try to figure out how to upload that to our Facebook page, otherwise, you can call our sales team and ask for them to put you on hold – it will play then.This is my husband and I on our wedding day in November 2009. We’ve almost been married 5 years! Time sure flies when you are having fun.That’s all for now, I think my next blog post will be on How to Buy for Groups. That is also super tricky but we have some really great insider tips.Until Next Time,Kortni

How to Choose a T-Shirt Size
Red And Blue Shoes
Broken Arrow T-Shirt Selection Guide Part 2Are you choosing the right T-shirt for your needs? What are the differences between performance T-shirts and other T-shirts? Should you choose a tri-blend T-shirt, a 100 percent cotton T-shirt, or a cotton-poly blend? Broken Arrow T-Shirt Printing and Embroidery has the answers!What is a Performance T-Shirt?Fabrics that can wick away moisture are often used to make performance T-shirts and athletic wear. The T-shirt material, typically composed of synthetic fabrics, allows more air to circulate or “breathe”, which helps keep the user’s skin dry from sweat. (Pure cotton shirts, on the other hand, tend to hold moisture in.) Wicking fabrics typically cost a little more than 100 percent cotton T-shirts. Depending on what you will be doing when you wear your T-shirt, this can be money well spent. For example, if you’ll be wearing your shirts to exercise or perform physical labor, you’ll be more dry and comfortable in a custom decorated performance T-shirt. If you live in a hot climate and work outdoors, performance T-shirts and polo shirts are both excellent choices. Wicking fabric can be easily screen-printed and lend a high-quality look and feel to custom decorated apparel and are excellent choices for active businesses and organizations, and athletic events.What is a Tri-Blend T-Shirt?Like performance T-shirts, tri-blend T-shirts are an excellent alternative to a 100-percent cotton shirt. The fabric for tri-blend t-shirts is typically composed of three materials—polyester, cotton, and rayon. Professional athletes often wear tri-blend T-shirts as their warm-ups. Tri-blend custom decorated T-shirts are super-soft, wrinkle resistant, and nearly as breathable as a performance T-shirt, which makes them great for an active workout or an inactive day binge watching your favorite new Netflix series. Like Performance T-shirts, this fabric tends to be a little higher priced than 100 percent cotton or polyester-cotton blends. Tri-blends also look great when custom screen-printed with your logo or custom design. Our customers love tri-blend shirts, so you may want to consider a tri-blend for your next custom decorated apparel order.100% Cotton or a Cotton-Polyester Blend?All cotton T-shirts have been the staple for decades. They are super affordable, long lasting, and downright comfortable. They are typically a bit thicker and heavier than cotton-polyester blended T-shirts, which for some people, corresponds to quality. 100% cotton T-shirts will wrinkle and may shrink, particularly when washed in hot water. Look for all-cotton brands in our product catalog marked “pre-shrunk.” A shirt made from from cotton and polyester blend, on the other hand, is less likely to shrink or wrinkle than it’s pure cotton counterpart, and is also less likely to stain. Cotton-polyester blends are also super-affordable, too. When a cheap price is what matters most to you, go with either a 100% cotton custom decorated T-shirt, (heavier feel) or a cotton/polyester blend custom decorated T-shirt (lighter feel).Author: Amber Barz
Have you ordered this awesome new shirt for your club or team yet? Pom pom jerseys, aka Game Day jerseys are the hottest trend this spring! Pom pom jerseys pair great with a pair of leggings or jeans, and have a comfortable, relaxed look.You may know pom pom jerseys best by the big print on the upper back. At Broken Arrow, we call this a Billboard print, which gives you that big upper back print that is larger than what would fit on a standard t-shirt. In fact, our billboard print option only fits on pom pom jerseys. The billboard screen print can be about 22″ wide by about 5″ tall or so on the upper back of the shirts. Specialty inks are popular options as well. Puff ink works great on pom pom jerseys, and gives the design a raised up look and feel. Metallic specialty inks like ultra gold shimmer or silver glitter also work well to give your design some extra wow factor! You can of course add a print to the front as well if you would like. A common option is a left chest print along with the billboard print on the back, but you can mix it up however you would like! The minimum order requirement for pom pom jerseys is just 6 per design. And, the best part about custom silk screen t-shirts is you can mix different shirt colors in the order as long as the design remains the same, so you can order pom pom jerseys in a variety of colors for your group or club!

Make Custom T-shirts for Your Favorite Cause!
Broken Arrow T-Shirt Fit Guide Part 1Are you choosing the right size T-shirt? To look your best in a Broken Arrow Custom decorated T-shirt, the fit should not be too baggy or too tight. If your T-shirt is too baggy, the extra fabric can make you look boxy and bigger than you actually are. If your T-shirt is too tight, you may draw attention to those parts of your figure that are not your favorites. Whether you a sporting a six-pack or a twelve back, your T-shirt should flow with your shape but not show every lump and bump.How long should your T-shirt be?The bottom hem of your T-shirt should not be any higher than your hips. If your T-shirt is too short, you risk showing your belly when you reach up high or showing your behind when you bend over. A good rule of thumb is to make sure the T-shirt extends at least to the top of the pocket on your favorite jeans.Where should your T-Shirt’s shoulder seams fall?Shoulder seams are the seams where the body of the T-shirt attaches to the sleeve. Ideally, these vertical seams should align with where your shoulders end rather than lower or your arms or closer to your neck.How long should our T-shirt’s sleeves be?Short-sleeve T-shirt sleeves should end half way between your shoulder and elbow give or take an inch or two.Author: Amber Barz
