According to industry statistics, in 2022, there will be over 3 million construction companies in the U.S. With such market saturation, making sure your construction company stands out from the competition has never been more critical. Business owners can grow their construction company by handing out t-shirts and caps to help promote their company.
Your construction business caps and t-shirts should be high quality with a crisp, bold logo that's seen from 25 feet away. Your t-shirts should have a left chest print and a full back print that displays your logo and slogan in bold letters.
Marketing is valuable, meaning a construction company shirt is only as effective as the branding it displays. Analyzing how effectively your logo and slogan communicate your construction company's purpose and identity can help to look at different companies that have mastered it.

Little Known History of Carhartt Jackets
The 1890s were booming for Carhartt, with the Trans Northern Railroad laying track only 2 miles from Carhartt's original manufacturing site. The site was perfect for Carhartt to sell jackets to the railway workers. Plus, being so close to the rail tracks, he could ship his jackets to the West Coast. Carhartt's expansion grew to 8 facilities around the country and continued growing until the Great Depression hit.

Factory Tour, Embroidery, Thread, Caps, and Showroom.
The Japanese company, Tajima, manufactured our embroidery machines, and we have used this brand for nearly 40 years. The embroidery machines hold up to 10 different thread colors, giving you a pleasant color palette to make your design pop. The speed of the embroidery machines, on average, runs at about 550 stitches per minute to ensure quality and productivity. We ran the machines at nearly 900 stitches per minute, and they still produced crisp embroidery. The embroidery machine you see in the video is stitching polo shirts and fleece pullovers that are excellent choices for outfitting your employees.
