Vegan Walking ShoesWhat’s the difference between yoga pants, workout pants, active wear leggings and casual, everyday leggings? Which legging is best for you? Here are the answers: As the leisure wear market continues to grow exponentially and more and more people are adopting a healthy, active lifestyle the kind of leggings to buy to work out and wear every day has become more and more complicated. There are workout pants, yoga pants, yoga leggings, yoga capris, active wear capris, active wear leggings, practice pants, and casual wear leggings. So which ones are best for you? Here are the answers.:Leisure wear- Broken Arrow WearYoga pants. Yoga pants and yoga leggings are designed with movement in mind. Some manufacturers refer to these fan faves as active wear pants, workout pants, or active wear leggings or active wear capris. Because yoga pants are comfortable and stretchy, many women wear them everywhere they go. They are great for working out, lounging, and every activity in between. Yoga pants are typically made of thick, opaque fabrics that give and stretch without becoming loose or baggy. They’re ideal to wear topped with a T-shirt or hoodie, and typically feature an elastic or drawstring waist in varying widths. Yoga pants are designed to let you move in any direction without tearing and without worry of embarrassing see-though areas. You can find yoga pants that fit skintight, or in a looser, more relaxed fit. To ensure the yoga pants you are considering are exactly what you are looking for, always read the manufacturer’s description. Look for polyester/spandex fabrics which may or may not be mixed with the cotton. Yoga pants also come in different lengths:• Relaxed fit yoga pants may come with an open, slightly flared or bootcut bottom or a closed, close-to-your ankle fit.• Yoga capris feature a mid calf length.• Yoga leggings may also come in ankle length or full length.Fashion wear leggings. Also called casual wear leggings, these leggings are a riskier buy if you plan to exercise in them as they may not be as durable or as opaque as their yoga or active wear cousins. These leggings hug your curves. As with yoga pants, there are different categories of casual wear leggings.• Thin fashion leggings are just a little thicker than tights and more delicate than yoga pants. They may be slightly see-through and may not perform well for a serious workout. It’s best to wear thin leggings below a tunic length top.• Cotton leggings are typically thick enough not to be see-through but thin enough to feel pretty comfortable. They don’t hold you in or offer a lot of support but they feel great.• Support leggings offer more figure flattering control.So, what does Broken Arrow Wear offer in terms of workout or leisure pants that can be custom decorated with your team name, logo, or other cool graphic design? Here are our favs!Exercise leggings and fitness pants:• Form fitting Sport-Tek NRG Fitness Pants make great workout pants, whether you are running, doing yoga, lifting weights or some other strenuous activity. Made from polyester spandex, they feature a wide waistband for added comfort. And bonus, they are moisture wicking, too. • Form fitting Sport-Tek 7/8 Active Leggings also make great workout pants, thanks to plenty of stretch for movement and a comfortable 7/8 (ankle) length. Made from a poly spandex jersey fabric, they are super comfy, too.Everyday comfort and casual wear leggings:• These casual wear, mostly cotton Bella Leggings are soft, comfortable, and excellent for lounging and relaxing. There is no side-seam, so they make an attractive silhouette. If you only need one or two pairs, these will work great for you as there is no minimum order quantity.• Not into the form fit? Are you looking for a pair of pants to nap or binge watch your favorite series? These J-America Vintage Zen Open Bottom Fleece Sweatpants feature an acid wash burnout finish that is about comfy as pants can get. Fashion forward solution:If you love the latest fashion trends, then you’ll love the laser cut detailing on the legs of these Ogio Stay Cool Laser Tech Leggings. And good news, they also make great workout pants as they help you stay cool and comfortable while you work out.For both active and everyday wear:These Champion Performance Leggings are great for the gym and comfortable enough to wear all over town. The reflective details are also an excellent safety feature when you are out after dark. The leggings feature a fitted cuff at the ankle and a drawstring waste for added comfort and flexibility.
Safety Matters to Broken Arrow T-Shirt Printing
The Top 5 Most Popular Caps for Custom EmbroideryOur customers are often asking us about the difference between cap styles—which ones are the most popular and which ones look best with a custom embroidered design. Per your request, here are the top 5 most popular custom embroidered caps we sell along with everything you need to know to choose right one for your group. Six Panel Caps Six panel caps are what most of us think of when we think of “baseball caps.” New Era introduced these iconic six panel caps back in 1934 and they still make them today. Made from 6 cloth triangles (hence the name) that extend from the top of your head umbrella style, these rounded caps look great on nearly everyone. Custom embroidered logos, images and/or names on the front of the cap look great and read well. Fitted or stretch-to-fit caps will give your custom cap a more tailored look, but have the drawback of adding a sizing element to your order. For one-size-fits all custom embroidered caps, choose caps with an adjustable closure. Choose from hook and loop (Velcro®), snap, and adjustable clasp closure options. The quality of the closure greatly affects the cost, fit and perceived value of the caps. If you’re buying hats for a sports team or business team, the six-panel cap is a solid choice that will please nearly everyone. Five Panel Caps Five panel caps were created in the 1990s to offer customers a larger unobstructed decoration area. As the name implies, 5-panel hats are made of five fabric pieces instead of six, so there is no front seam. Five panels come in both flat brim and bent brim styles. Flat brim versions lend a more street-smart look. The trendiest flat-bill styles also have a higher front profile. Five-panel flat bill caps are more cutting-edge in terms of fashion, so if your group is young and style-conscious, choose a 5-panel cap for your custom embroidered caps. Five panels are also great for embroidering larger, complex logos or designs. Trucker Caps Pair the five-panel-cap with a mesh back and a stiffer foam front panel, and you have for what is commonly referred to as a trucker style cap. The name “trucker cap” first took hold when farming supply companies began giving away these relatively low-cost caps to truck drivers and farmhands as a way of raising brand awareness. Today, trucker caps have become a fashion statement. Choose custom embroidered or screen-printed trucker hats if you are looking for both value and cutting edge style. Snap Backs Snap back caps come in both 5 and 6 panels styles. They fit different size heads thanks to the addition of an adjustable snap closure on the back. These caps have come back into style in a big way and can be worn either forward or backward. See my previous blog for how to wear a custom snap back cap stylishly.Dad Hats Dad hats are typically looser fitting, six panel caps made from canvas or cotton. The current “dad hat” trend calls for a slightly curved brim. The dad hat name comes from (no brainer here) dads over the past decades who have chosen to wear comfy caps. Now it’s a fashion statement.Author: Amber Barz

Broken Arrow Custom T-Shirt PrintingWeb Address:https://www.brokenarrowwear.comStandard Turnaround Time:Delivered 6 business daysafter order placement100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $7.81 each.Pros of Broken Arrow T-Shirt Printing and EmbroideryFast turnaround—to your door 6 business days after order placementFree deliveryExcellent qualityCheap pricesHuge online catalogEasy online designerExperienced fashion experts answer the phone and texts and are happy to help you if and when you need you need itExperienced on-staff artists can create custom designs for you free of charge if you prefer24/7 website access and order placementCons of Broken ArrowWeekend and late night orders are through website onlyThe Scoop:In business for over 30 years, Broken Arrow Wear offers a lot more than just basic custom T-shirt printing services. Broken Arrow’s online design tool has over 13,000 pieces of clipart and hundreds of design ideas. It is quick and easy to use, but their true specialty is custom artwork, which is free with your order. If you need a custom T-shirt design or want your logo revised or if you prefer not to use a clip art design, Broken Arrow is the place to get your custom tees. Broken Arrow Wear has a staff of artists that will be happy to tweak your logo, design a totally new logo for you, or even have your logo turned into an allover T-shirt print. In addition to screen-printing, Broken Arrow Wear offers direct-to-garment digital printing, all over printing, rhinestones, sublimation (a form of heat transfer explained below). All production is done in house from a central United States location, which allows for some of the quickestfreestandard delivery times and more affordable rush order deliveries.Broken Arrow Wear is a one-stop-shop for your custom T-shirt printing and apparel needs.All-inclusive pricing is provided on each and every quote, so no other fees apply.

UberPrintsWeb Address:http://www.uberprints.comStandard Turnaround Time:Ships in 5 to 10 business days100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $8.50 each.Pros of UberprintsGood turnaround—items arrive at your door approximately 8 business days after order placementExcellent qualityNice size online catalog, including pet apparelEasy online designerEasy online quotes.Cons of UberprintsStandard delivery is $5.99 plus .50 per item for orders that cost less than $100Prices are quite a bit higher than Broken Arrow, but still less than Custom InkYou must use the online designerThe Scoop:Uberprints is another good T-shirt printer if you are looking to design a shirt yourself. T-shirts are typically shipped out seven days after the day your order is placed, although some orders can take twice that long. (As a fun aside, if you want to print a matching T-shirt for you and your dog, you can do it at Uberprints). Their website is designed around creating a shirt yourself, so if you want design help, I suggest going to Broken Arrow. Shipping at Uberprints is only free on orders costing more than $100.3. Custom InkWeb Address:http://www.customink.comStandard Turnaround Time:2 weeks100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $9.15 each. Pros of Custom InkFree deliveryExcellent qualityHuge online catalogEasy online designer24/7 website access and order placementOpen late nights and weekendsCons of Custom InkPrices are quite a bit higher than Broken ArrowSlower turnaround—from order placement to your door expect at least 2 weeksYou must use the online designerThe Scoop:Custom ink is without a doubt the largest online custom T-shirt retail printer in the nation. They have grown to be an industry leader due to their high-dollar, expansive marketing and advertising campaigns and their do-it-yourself online T-shirt designer.They pioneered what they refer to as “the T-shirt design lab” and they offer lots of clip art designs for you to choose from. Custom Ink also offers live chat, long business hours, and a friendly staff. Their prices tend to be on the higher end of T-shirt printers, and considering you must do all the work to design your own tee, that leaves a little to be desired for some customers. Like Broken Arrow, they offer all-inclusive pricing.4. Discount Mugs Web Address:www.discountmugs.com Standard Turnaround Time:Delivered in about 2 weeks 100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $7.60 eachPros of Discount MugsExcellent qualityCheap PricesNice size online catalog, especially if you want things like mugs and pensEasy online pricing gridCons of Discount MugsSlower turnaround—from order placement to your door expect at least 2 weeksShipping is only free on orders over $75.The Scoop:The thing I like the most about Discount Mugs is that they offer so much more than printed T-shirts. They offer mugs (shocking right?!), pens, toys, and other typical promotional products. Their online pricing grid makes it easy to see their scaled-quantity pricing and the difference in cost between each printing method. Their quote system is easy and the ordering process is simple. Their D-lab design software lets you put your uploaded design on almost any of their product choices. Discount Mugs does not appear to offer any sort of custom artwork services, so if your design or file is not ready to go, you’ll have to choose another printer or hire a graphic designer to create your artwork.5. Café PressWeb Address:www.cafepress.comStandard Turnaround Time:Arrives at your door in 5 to 7 businessdays100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $14.50 eachPros of Café PressExcellent qualityNice size online catalogGood for orders of one or two T-shirtsNice selection of pre-designed T-shirtsFast turnaround—to your door approximately 6 day after order placementCons of Café PressPrices are highShipping is never freeYou gotta have everything in the shopping cart before you can get much helpThe Scoop:Café express really prefers that you use their website and never call them, which for some people may be a plus, not a con. Their phone number is not even on their main website page. Café express, however, is excellent at small orders and they dominate the print on demand market. If you want to have your catalog of garments online and then have customers buy them with a profit going back to you, this service is worth checking out. As a customer, you can choose from a catalog of pre-designed tees from freelance creative artists, or you can design your own. If you don’t have a creative bone in your body but want to find a cool holiday tee, Café Press is a great site to visit. Each artist that sells their design on the site receives a small royalty, so you will also be supporting a starving artist. You are definitely going to pay a lot for bulk orders, so look elsewhere for large quantity T-shirt orders. If pre-designed tees are your thing, you really cannot beat the Café Press selection.6. SpreadshirtWeb Address:www.spreadshirt.comStandard Turnaround Time:varies greatly, usually 2 weeks100 Fruit-of-the-Loom black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost youapproximately $10.50 eachPros of SpreadshirtGood qualityNice size online catalog; they also carry phone casesCons of SpreadshirtTurnaround varies greatly depending on what you order, usually two weeks.Shipping costs $5.99 for 1 or 2 items and goes up as you buy more.The Scoop:Spreadshirt reminds me of Café Press but with more customizable options. The Spreadshirt online design tool connects you to an online artist community to give you some very unique, yet customizable artwork. You’ll find fun, funky graphics that you won’t find anywhere else. The prices vary depending on the design and artist you choose but unlike Café Press, you can then customize your chosen design.Custom artwork (such as company and team logos) and bulk orders don’t appear to be their niche, but it is a fun spot to design a single custom tee.7. Rush Order Tees Web Address:www.rushordertees.com Standard Turnaround Time:8 days from order placement 100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $8.10 eachPros of Rush Order TeesGood qualityNice size online catalogFree ShippingCons of Rush Order TeesYou must use the online designerThe Scoop:Like Custom Ink, at RushOrderTees you will be uploading your own art or using clipart to create your T-shirt design. Located in Pennsylvania, they ship orders throughout the U.S. so west coast delivery can take a few days longer than when ordered from Broken Arrow. Their price quotes are all inclusive. They offer standard screen-printing, embroidery, and a sublimation heat transfer option, but not rhinestones.8. Design A ShirtWeb Address:www.designashirt.comStandard Turnaround Time: 10 days from order placement100 Basic Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approximately $8.75 each.Pros of Design A ShirtGood qualityGood online catalogFairly easy to get an online quoteFree ShippingCons of Design A ShirtYou must use the online designerThe Scoop:A unique element to Design A Shirt is that they offer their own “DAS Value” Tee. While I don’t know the quality of the DAS Value Tee, they get brownie points for creativity. The site provides clearly laid out delivery dates prior to placing your order, which makes it easy to know whether you are going to get the product soon enough and whether you might have to pay extra for faster delivery.Their higher quality shirts can be pricier than other printers though, so if you’re ordering something other than the “das value,” don’t expect to get the best deal here.9. Tee Spring Web Address: https://teespring.com Standard Turnaround Time:varies depending on venderCould not find a price of 100 Gildan Black T-Shirts with a three-color print.Pros of Tee SpringGood qualityGood online catalog that includes phone cases, sock, and mugsOffers pre-made designsCons of Tee SpringShipping is $3.99 for first item and $2 more for each additional item.The Scoop:Similar to Café Press, if you want to have your own catalog of garments online and then have customers buy them with a profit going back to you, this service is worth checking out. As a customer, you can choose from a catalog of pre-designed tees from freelance creative artists, or you can design your own. If you are looking to order a custom t-shirts for a company, team, or event, they are probably not the best choice for that.10. Vistaprint Web Address:www.vistaprint.com Standard Turnaround Time:varies depending on vender100 Basic Black T-Shirts with a three-color print will cost you approimately $14.00 each plus shipping.Pros of VistaprintGood qualityGood online catalog, especially for paper productsCons of VistaprintSo big you may have to wait a long time for helpYou must use the online designerDifficult to get a quoteThe Scoop:Vistaprint is a well-known online retailer that specializes in paper product printing. They make attractive, high quality business cards and stationary. I have ordered some of their paper products myself. When it comes to decorating T-shirts, they also provide a decent print quality and a decent selection of clipart, but if you are looking for truly custom T-shirt design, they are not your best bet. Uploading artwork files is easy and their online T-shirt design tool works OK, but it offers fewer bells and whistles compared to most of the other sites listed. When you check out, be prepared for pages and pages of special offers (and long hold times), which makes placing an order a long process.Kortni Remer,General ManagerBroken Arrow Custom T-Shirt Printing and Embroidery
