What’s in a name? Well, a lot actually. It creates the first impression of your shop. It sets the tone for the service and buying experience a new customer can expect. It can invoke a sense of quality, style, expertise, fun or creativity. It can help you target a niche market, capture what you do or what you value. Think ‘Thread Cred’ versus ‘T-Shirts Are Us’. A distinctive shop name helps you stand out amongst your competitors, improves recall, sparks curiosity, and an affinity for your brand.
So whether you’re about to embark on running your own custom apparel shop or you’re looking to rebrand an established shop, we’ve created a collection of some of our favorite screen print, embroidery, DTG, sublimation and promotional product shop names to inspire you.
