    After a great season last year I sprung for tee shirts just to give me and my guys a more professional look. Something simple and easy is best, I went with a single sided print green tee shirts with white print. (logo / company name / phone number) for a dozen shirts it was only $135.00 which included the art fee / set up fee. So now any additional shirts i order are $8.50 a shirt printed when I buy 6 or more. As far as everything else, tan shorts/ jeans and work boots.

    Why not just rent from Cintas instead of buy? I am thinking of doing that....I am not sure if there is a minimum though. I know the shop where my buddy welds, they only charge them 7 bucks a week. That give you 6 clean 6 dirty and 1 on your back.

    We checked with Cintas, but we went with Aramark. It's about $5-6 a week per person.

    I see you are from Beaumont, we are from Vidor. :waving:

    Staples sells heat transfer paper. Basically, you print your logo or info onto the paper and iron it onto your shirts. You can get yourself a few cheap polo shirts or tee shirts, add the logo, and you should be all set.
