Promotional Events

During summer and well into fall there are a number of local events that businesses can attend to promote their company and offer promotional products. Whether it’s a fair, festival, or flea market, setting up a booth to tell people more about your company is a great way to spread brand awareness and get yourself better known by the locals.

Some businesses may also host events to celebrate and promote the release of a new product, or because they hit a milestone. In whichever situation, it’s always a good idea to deck out the people running the event (or booth) in custom workwear that vividly displays your company name accompanied by an eye-catching design that attracts customers.

Coming up with a design for a t-shirt to promote an event can be challenging, but with help from our onsite designers, you don’t have to worry about a thing. They’re experienced and well-versed in design principles for a number of industries and can help you come up with a design that you will be proud of.

We host a hefty catalogue of brand names with a number of different sizes, style choices, and colours. You’re sure to find whatever it is that you may be looking for when trying to come up with items for your employees to wear.

But why stop at just getting promotional products for your team when you could create some swag to give away for free to your guests? Custom t-shirts and hats are the most popular items to give away for free to visitors when they visit your booth or attend a promotional event. Customers love these free items and will tell their friends and family about it, drawing more people’s attention your way.

T-shirt marketing is actually a highly effective strategy when it comes to attracting more customers to your business. People will be wearing your t-shirt long after your event is over and will basically become a walking ad for your company, sparking conversation with people who inquire about the shirt. Word of mouth referrals are still considered one of the most effective marketing strategies, so using this method to engage with customers is definitely worth the investment.

Safety Workwear

High-visibility safety apparel has increasingly become a more important part of workplace safety in recent years. This kind of attire is vital for employees who work in low-light and dark conditions like at a construction site. It’s also important for warehouse workers who handle heavy machinery and need to be able to be seen to avoid workplace accidents.

As an employer, you want to make sure that your employees are safe and comfortable in their workwear, and that the apparel you get for them is of a quality make. You also can’t just trust anyone to get the job done according to your specific industry needs.

At R&P Prints, we can customize safety apparel to suit a number of different industries and specific business requirements. Certified reflective apparel is available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, and are designed to meet the various standards designated by the CSA Group (formerly the Canadian Standards Association).

If you need to customize your apparel or have any special requests, then we can work with you to make it happen. All you need to do is give us a call and our experienced and knowledgeable representatives will be happy to answer any question you may have. We offer free estimates, proofs, and delivery, have no setup charges, and offer affordable pricing with options for bulk orders.

Quality Silk Screen Printing

At R&P Prints, we use a traditional silk screen printing method that utilizes the latest technologies of both manual and automatic equipment. The way it works is that a mesh screen transfers ink a variety of different surfaces except in areas where the ink is blocked by a stencil. Several stencils (or screens) are used to apply each individual colour required one at a time. The ink is applied in thick layers with a blade or squeegee that is moved over the screen to fill openings in the mesh. A reverse stroke is then used to wet the fabric with ink as the screen springs back after the blade passes through. Traditionally silk was used for the mesh but nowadays nylon is more common.

This labour-intensive method is used to create long-lasting, vivid prints that can’t be replicated by any other method. Our printers are masters of their technique and we pride ourselves in the work that we do. You won’t find any other printer who produces such rich, clean work that is long-lasting and made with the finest apparel.

Our commitment to customer satisfaction doesn’t end at the quality of our products. We always aim to provide exceptional customer service in everything we do: from our prices to our flexibility, to our dedication to delivering products in a timely manner and within your desired schedule.

Still not sure? Contact us today and find out why our customers love us and keep coming back for all of their printing needs. There’s no obligation to use our services, even after a full consultation, so you really have nothing to lose!

Who Orders Wholesale T-Shirts?

What kind of clients do we get, and when is it beneficial to order in bulk at wholesale prices instead of individually? Let’s take a look.

Camp Organizers

Whether you’re running a day camp or summer camp, there are a number of reasons why you may need to bulk order t-shirts. The most obvious is that camp organizers, counsellors, and volunteers, should have a t-shirt that identifies themselves as members of staff that children can go to for assistance and guidance. These t-shirts can include the staff member’s and your organization’s name, the year, as well as the position they occupy. Doing this ensures that you can quickly identify your staff and also offers a level of legitimacy to your organization, increasing trust between yourself and your clients.

The second reason you may want custom t-shirts is for the children attending your camp. Not only do t-shirts make great souvenirs to take away after the experience is over, but they also help staff easily identify their charges, especially when out in public.

While t-shirts are a popular choice for camp-goers, there are also baseball caps, sweatshirts, and hoodies. When everyone is wearing your camp swag they’ll feel more connected and like a team, and the apparel will be kept for years to come as keepsakes.

Artists and Social Media Personalities

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways for artists and social media personalities to make money is to order custom merchandise for their fans to buy. For many YouTubers and Instagram personalities, ad revenue isn’t enough to make a living, which is why they turn to selling merchandise instead.

With our affordable, wholesale prices, it’s easy for social influencers to make bulk orders that will return a profit for them. Our prints are vivid, long-lasting, and done on quality apparel that will keep your fans wanting more. Order a range of apparel in different colours and sizes, and you’ll be prepared to meet the demand of your fans who want to support you and also be an official member of your group.

Not sure what kind of designs to use on your merchandise? It’s not hard to create attractive merch when working with R&P Prints’ onsite designers who are highly skilled and experienced. They’ll be able to help you create a perfect design that matches your brand and is a hit with your audience.

If you’re a professional artist, you may not need the help of our onsite designers, but you can rest assured that your art will come out vividly and beautifully on our quality apparel. Many admirers of your work may be hesitant to buy your art prints because the cost of framing them can be high, or perhaps because they don’t have any wall space to hang it. Custom apparel, on the other hand, is more affordable and an easier way to enjoy your art, especially when on the go.


There are a number of reasons why a business might be looking to order custom t-shirts in bulk. They may have a promotional event coming up and need shirts for their employees hosting it, as well as swag to give away for free to guests. They may be trying out a t-shirt marketing campaign, or have a booth at a local festival where they will be able to directly connect with the public and promote their brand.

In other cases, a company may be looking for custom t-shirts for resale purposes. Whatever the situation, R&P Prints should be your go-to when it comes to bulk ordering custom apparel. We are the best in the business with a reputation for success across Canada. With fast turnarounds, you don’t have to worry about getting your order on time, and we are always willing to accommodate any special requests.
