As spring gets closer, it’s time for kids and adults to sign up for all types of sports teams. T-ball, bowling, little league, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, golf and more.
Nothing boosts team spirit like custom imprinted t-shirts and hoodies. Designed to reflect your team’s colors and slogans, they enhance game day, both at home and away.
Create a “sea of support”
When team members and their supporters wear printed t-shirts, they create a “sea of color” that makes the fan base seem large and powerful — providing a psychological advantage to your team.
Boost fundraising efforts.
Wearing the custom t-shirts and hoodies on non-game days makes the team’s name visible throughout the community, enhancing opportunities for fundraising. And, of course, the hoodies and t-shirts themselves can be a powerful money-making tool. The shirts can be sold at a profit, given as prizes at community Chinese auctions, and used as premiums for higher-dollar donations.
Maintain uniform standards.
At Modern Graphics, even the most intricate logo can be reproduced with high-quality inks, on fabrics that stand up to the wear and tear of sports. Designers can even help update or refresh a logo or create an entirely new one, if necessary. And both t-shirts and hoodies can be customized to complement each team’s official uniform.
A local, friendly resource.
Because Modern Graphics is located in the Camden County and Gloucester County area, service is convenient and fully personalized. One-on-one consultations allow you to choose the exact types, sizes, colors and styles you prefer, and receive them quickly and affordably.
Don’t wait until busy season to order – the time to give your team a stand-out look is now. Call upon Modern Graphics we’re in a league of our own, too!

Hoodies are so easy to wear, and so warm without adding bulk, that people become “hoodie hoarders.” Chances are that you have a stash somewhere. And chances are that one of them is your favorite.
Leverage that popularity and help your organization make money by selling custom printed hoodies!
Imprinted hoodies are a great way for volunteer fire departments, schools, chambers of commerce, religious groups and other organizations to raise much-needed funds. At the same time, your organization’s name is continually being promoted throughout the community, as buyers wear them to various public events and places.
Custom printed hoodies come in several different styles, from simple pullovers to zippered versions. A wide range of colors and fabrics allows you to tailor your hoodie to the season, too. There are lighter fabrics for fall and spring, and heavier fabrics for even the coldest winter day. Add your group’s logo and perhaps a clever phrase — and you’ll have a product that your members and supporters will be proud to wear everywhere!
At Modern Graphics, you’ll find a selection that will easily allow you to earn money on each hoodie you sell. You’ll get complete help in designing your hoodie, and our designers thoroughly understand the unique challenges of imprinting intricate designs so they’ll be crisp and fresh.
In addition to fundraising activities, use the imprinted hoodies as prizes in Chinese auctions at civic events throughout your community. They’re also a terrific gift or reward for those who have gone the extra mile for your church, club, scout troop or civic organization!
Now that the weather is turning colder, it’s time to order your hoodies and make your next fundraiser a success!
School is back in session! That means homework, projects, sports — and school trips.
Chaperoning 20 or more students, especially young children, can be a challenge even for the most experienced teacher or parent. This is especially true if the school trip is in a crowded environment, such as historical Philadelphia, a zoo or other popular public venue.
Custom t-shirts can be one good way to ensure that you always know where each child is at all times.
It’s easier to count heads when everyone is wearing the same color t-shirt. The students themselves also feel part of a group, enhancing school spirit and pride. And the t-shirts themselves can become a memento of a fun day.
Here are some ideas to make your next school trip safer and more memorable:
• Include the name of the school on the back of the t-shirt.
• Choose a bright color that will stand out in a crowd. If your school colors are navy blue, choose a blue that is brighter for the t-shirt itself — and use the official color for the school’s name.
• Day-Glo colors can also be good for field trips to places like amusement parks, since you’ll be able to spot one of your students even on a ride.
• Don’t put the names of the children on their t-shirts, since that would give too much information to strangers.
• Consider a fun logo for the school trip to be designed on the front of the t-shirts, to create a souvenir. A dinosaur would be a great choice for the natural history museum, for example. A roaring lion for the zoo. Or a fun Picasso-like graphic for a visit to an art museum. At Modern Graphics, our designers can help you create something extra special no matter where you’re headed!
• Make sure your adult chaperones and teachers have matching t-shirts, as well. This will help the children find someone they can trust, should they wander away from the group.
• At Modern Graphics, you can order a variety of sizes to fit the students and adult chaperones!
Don’t wait until the last minute to design your field trip t-shirts! Give yourself time to think about the colors, textures and ideas that will make your trip more fun, safe and memorable!
Bill Glendening really needed a hair cut. Since his dad was a barber, the recent high school graduate popped in for a trim and advice on a career. His dad was happy to oblige: A local t-shirt printing shop was looking for an apprentice. “I just wanted a job,” says Bill. “I never thought screen printing would become my career, but I loved it from the first day!”
Bill apprenticed with several other print shops, learning something new at each one. But eventually, he’d learned enough to know that he could do a much better job. “Here I was, not even 22 years old, and I knew more than the owner!” he explained. “Too often, the managers would stay in their air conditioned offices while the printers did all the work out in the hot shop area. There’s nothing like having the owner supervising every aspect of each job, and I knew that would result in better quality and better prices.”
A new business, a great future.
Bill’s dream was fulfilled when he was able to purchase the right equipment. He launched Modern Graphics in 1994, and has enjoyed steady growth and recognition every year since.
Bill attributes his consistent success to his ability to help each client get the finest quality and stay within their budget.
Perfection drives everything.
“Everything we do has to be just right,” he explains. “For example, many people don’t realize the importance of the mesh used to print designs on t-shirts, hoodies and other apparel. If it’s too large the design will be blurry. Too small and the ink won’t penetrate properly.” Selecting the right mesh takes skill, but Bill believes the extra effort is worth it. “I want my clients’ designs to be crisp, bright and bold – after all, they’re promoting their brand, their team, their charity. We have to make them look as good as possible.”
Even the inks used by Modern Graphics are chosen for their performance on a variety of fabrics. “A lot of printers use the same ink, whether the fabric is cotton, polyester or a 50-50 blend. I prefer to use the ink that will work best on the fabric our clients have chosen – coverage is much better and the end result is superior.”
Even the designers are perfectionists.
Bill has a designer’s eye, but relies on a network of professionals whose specialty is design on fabric. “Any good designer can create something that looks right. But fabric printing has its own challenges,” says Bill. “What looks good on a monitor or on paper may not work on a thick hoodie. My design team knows exactly how to adapt a client’s design or create a new one cost-effectively.” Bill himself double-checks everything to ensure that it will meet each client’s specifications.
Bill and his team often work late into the night to make sure deadlines are met and clients are satisfied. “I’m out printing every day myself because I never want to lose my touch,” he says. “I want every Modern Graphics client to be happy with their order so they’ll not only return themselves, but tell others that we’re the best custom t-shirt printer in South Jersey.”
His dad would agree.
When it comes to imprinted t-shirts, local is better!
There are lots of things that are best ordered online because you know exactly what you’re getting. Books are a good example. So are things like copy paper, pens and brand-name ink cartridges But when it comes to imprinted t shirts, it gets trickier.
See your t-shirts before you buy them.
- You can stop in and see the different types of t-shirt, hoodie or jacket before placing your order.
- You can even try one on if the style is in stock.
- You can feel the materials to choose the fabric that best compliments the quality message you want to communicate. This is important, because your imprinted t-shirt represents your business — you want it to reflect your company’s own quality. And a cheap fabric won’t hold up under the stress of baseball, softball or soccer games.
Save money and time by buying t shirts locally!
Did you know that it can cost $50 or more to ship 200 t-shirts? That cost may be more than any sales taxes you’re saving.
And, with a local company, you can pick up your order the minute it’s ready, examine the product and be on your way. No need to wait days for your shipment to arrive.
Help your community, too!
When you buy local, you aren’t just supporting a single business. You’re directly contributing to the economy of the town, county and state.

Company team t-shirts help promote your brand, as well!
Every time your softball, baseball or other sports team plays, your business’s name is out there for everyone to see. Add a logo and tag line to give people a reason to think of your company first.
When you give away additional branded t-shirts, you’ll help to market your product or service throughout the area, as people wear them to grocery stores, shopping malls and family outings.
Add promotional items to make your team feel even more special.

Campaign t-shirts can give your candidate more attention during the busy 2016 election season!
Improve your ground game – promote your candidate with customized t-shirts!
Screen-printed t-shirts could be more effective than traditional political lawn signs.
T-shirts enhance your candidate’s name recognition.
- Your candidate’s name and message will appear at local sporting events, grocery stores, shopping malls and more.
- They give your campaign a “buttoned up” and professional look, especially when everyone wears their t-shirts at rallies and community events.
- They give your candidate and team members credibility. When knocking on doors or handing out literature, people are more likely to trust a “stranger” who’s wearing the “team colors.”
- They make political contributors feel important when they’re given a customized t-shirt.
Raise money with customized t-shirts!
Think up a clever statement to imprint on your t-shirts. Then, sell them at fundraisers to help raise much-needed campaign money.
Pair your imprinted t-shirts with other promotional items.
Key ring flashlights, chip clips and water bottles will raise awareness of your candidate and message even more. And they’ll last long after your candidate takes office, reinforcing his or her popularity as a leader!
The 2016 election season will be a busy one!
Whether you’re managing a primary campaign or gearing up for the general election, be sure to include political t-shirts into your budget — or better yet, ask a donor to contribute them to your campaign!
Be sure to include your website.
“Campaign or message shirts can be effective — as long as they drive the wearers/readers to someplace where they can act. “Shirts need to link to something else (such as a website).”
