How to Let Your Employees Pick Their Sizes in 2 Simple Steps

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Branded Apparel 101

It can be quite challenging to get your employees apparel that fits their size and color preferences, as everyone has their own taste. 

Many companies have been avoiding customized apparel for that reason; they instead opt for other swag options to avoid this issue. 

Yet, branded apparel is way too important to give up for the following reasons:

  • Branded clothing promotes unity and equality

If everyone from the top to the bottom of the corporate ladder wears apparel with the business logo on it, it seems like everyone is on an equal footing. 

Employees can see the bigger picture, where they are all part of an organization and work towards a common objective.

  • It inspires loyalty

One of the most significant benefits of using corporate t-shirts is the influence it has on your workers. 

Your staff will wear them with pride if you have appropriately grown your brand and ensured that the design is a good reflection of your organization. 

Embroidering business logos on clothing fosters a feeling of connection and solidarity among your staff.

According to Inkwell, companies with healthy work culture and an emphasis on inclusiveness have a 35% lower turnover rate than those who do not.

The most popular product category among workers is wearable items such as shirts and caps, followed by writing equipment and bags.

In addition to staff loyalty, giving out t-shirts to consumers can enhance customer loyalty as well.

On that note, 89% of consumers can remember the company that provided them with a swag item over the previous few years.

  • It enables simple interactions with consumers

When your company or brand’s emblem is featured on your workers’ apparel, it makes them immediately recognizable. 

Customers may quickly identify them and get assistance when necessary. 

Also, customers feel more at ease interacting with workers they identify as part of your organization.

Hence, we’re helping you with a permanent solution to avoid the hassle of choosing proper sizing.

How to Let Your Employees Pick Their Sizes in 2 Simple Steps

SwagDrop’s Pop-up Shop is here to ease your size-picking worries when ordering your next t-shirt swag items. 

A swag pop-up shop is a dedicated online swag shop created by businesses who wish to gather information and mix purchases from diverse buyers, such as their workers.

What’s nice about swag pop-up stores is that they enable businesses to provide their workers with access to buying internal swag, and meeting their corporate product and branding requirements in a simple and straightforward manner.

Furthermore, all items at a swag pop-up store are branded and particularly tailored to display the company’s identity.

Employees get to choose their own sizes for all apparel such as t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, and any size-based item, making your apparel purchase process way more accessible. 

Let’s check out how you can build your store with our SwagDrop Pop-up Shop tool.

Step #1: Make your own swag pop-up shop

First, you will need to visit our Pop-up Shop tab on our website.

Then, you will scroll down to the bottom of the page. There, you’ll find two types of shops:

  • Pop-up shop
  • Company shop

Author’s note: Company Shops enable you to make promotional items accessible for purchase by workers, distributors, partners, and anyone else who needs them. Since you pre-approve the items – including the design and pricing ranges – the products are always on-brand. 

Company Shops have minimum quantity requirements. In addition, these Shops can be password-protected and take credit card payments if specific ship-to destinations are selected.

Choose the pop-up shop.

Then, click on “View Sample Shop”; this will redirect you to another page: a sample shop powered by commonsku.

You’ll notice that the page looks like any other online or eCommerce shop you have used before.

Once you click on “Start Shopping”, you will be able to see how the shop looks to any user, including the available items, as shown below.

We have chosen a t-shirt as a demo product so you can thoroughly review and understand the process.

As you can see in the highlighted area, all related information is available, such as color and price. 

The user will be able to add the product to the cart and pick their size, as seen below.

Then the user will enter their address and contact details; this will make tracking orders easier for you and more organized. 

That’s it for this step. 

Let’s see what’s next. 

Step #2: Contact SwagDrop and start building your swag pop-up shop

Having seen what a swag pop-up shop looks like and what it can accomplish for you and your customers, we recommend using our Swag Pack Builder to see what other swag items you may want to include.

Don’t stress if you want to include anything to your store that you don’t see in our Swag Pack Builder; we can get almost anything you want. Our friendly staff will help you personalize and make your pop-up store an exceptional experience for users.

To sum up, the second step is to contact us so we can help you get started after you’ve decided to operate a swag pop-up shop.
