Supplier Launches One-Stop Printed Garment Program

Expert Brand (asi/53404) now offers a One Order – One Shipment – One Invoice (OSI) program that provides printed performance shirts for distributors in a simple process. Customers place an order by selecting a style number and color and uploading artwork, and can expect complimentary shipment in seven to 14 days.

The Women’s Heather Performance Tee (AF 204) from Expert Brand (asi/53404) is available under the supplier’s new OSI program. It’s made of cationic disperse heather micro polyester and comes in five colors.

"The OSI program started as a turnkey solution for distributors to offer imprinted performance apparel delivered to their customers without having to source out every step of the process, including the shirt, decoration and shipment,” says Sion Shaman, Expert Brand’s VP of sales.

The program also uses Expert Brand’s proprietary hybrid standard print ink, called SubLike, for optimal printing on performance fabrics. Other options include Sponge-like, Reflective, Illuminate and Exposed; each is eco-friendly and Oeko-Tex 100-certified and does not compromise the garments’ wicking performance, anti-microbial treatment, breathability or wrinkle resistance.

“Customers no longer have to be concerned about what type of ink is used and how it will react with the fabric,” says Horacio Gonzalez, director of printables for Expert Brand. “We’re delivering a true performance product through OSI and we’re proud to be known as the one-stop shop of decorated performance apparel.”

The OSI program requires a minimum of 48 pieces per garment style and color, and the artwork must be at least 300dpi and in an AI or EPS format. Visit www.expertbrand.com for more information.
