Do you ever wonder how custom apparel could be useful to you? At Bender we produce apparel used for many different reasons and for a wide variety of client types. If you’re reading this it’s likely you fall into one of these categories.
Businesses purchasing shirts for their staff is our most typical client. It is important as a business that employees (especially those working directly with customers) to dress similar. Imagine going into a major super center or you local hardware store and not knowing who to go to for help.
For smaller businesses this is equally important for marketing. If your company of 20 employees all wear your logo think of how many times that logo is seen throughout the day. Marketing is a numbers game and repetition creates brand awareness.
With spring comes baseball season and so will the teams that need jerseys. Same goes with hockey, basketball, gymnastics, etc. Bender Apparel can print jerseys for recreation leagues and stitch hats for teams and even personalize these items.
Athletes aren’t the only ones involved. Parents, friends, and the fans that fill the stands often desire spirit wear to root on their favorite athlete or team.
There are many charities, organizations, and groups that host events throughout the year. No matter the function a t-shirt is a great way to mark the occasion. This is an important tool for both organizers and attendees.
Custom apparel allows you to show support for a cause. Wearing something that is going to be seen by the masses will generate interest. Summer camps, walks/runs, and even catered events often come with a grab bag with a shirt for participating or enrollment.
Are you an entrepreneur with an idea to create the next best fashion line? Do you have an eye for art and design?

As we enjoy this holiday season, I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the year we have had here at Bender Apparel and Bender Signs. It seems even more appropriate that we take time to express our gratitude as 2018 was a year full of ups and downs. As many of you know, Hurricane Florence brought overwhelming tragedy to our community this past September. Our facilities were unharmed but some of our employees experienced devastating loss. However, the loss we experienced also brought opportunity, opportunity that we are truly grateful for. We have been able to partner with organizations such as Temple Baptist Church, 8 Days of Hope, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, and many others to work to rebuild our community. This type of community service and camaraderie has impacted our business and we will continue to be a part of this type of work from here on out.
As an employer, I also want to take a moment to express my appreciation for our staff. When we hire new employees for Bender Apparel and Bender Signs, we ensure that we are hiring employees who embody compassion. I am proud of the team we have at Bender Apparel and their willingness to not only work hard on products but to also work hard to serve the community. This past year we have had the pleasure of teaming up with RCS, a community outreach program in New Bern, North Carolina. Each month three or four of our employees volunteer at RCS to help with whatever is needed from sorting food and/or clothing donations, to filing paperwork, or even facility maintenance. This type of giving spirit is possible because of each and every employee’s compassion and willingness to serve.
Finally, I want to take you – our loyal customers. I appreciate the support you gave during the Hurricane and subsequent flooding. You were patient, you were kind, and you were willing to support us in anyway possible. That means so much to me and to our staff. We appreciate your encouragement as we have grown and expanded, adding new locations, new services, and new techniques. Thank you for allowing us to serve you in all your marketing needs.
