Editor’s Note: This blog was originally published in 2020 and has been updated with the latest research and T-shirt giveaways.

T-shirt giveaways have long been one of the most popular promotional items—and with good reason. They create a win for everyone. Recipients get a comfortable, practical shirt that lets them wear a brand they love, while organizations get an average of 3,400 impressions per shirt (PDF).

T-shirt giveaways provide wins in other ways too. With a variety of price points and styles to choose from, you can select a T-shirt that reflects your brand, makes your logo pop and fits your marketing budget with just a few clicks.

We have several filters on our T-shirt page to help you narrow down your selection. Sort by fit, fabric and/or style to find the perfect match for your promotion. For popular classic tees, filter by Basic T-Shirts under the Style menu. Choose Moisture Wicking under Fabric or Athletic under Style for a performance shirt. And to save yourself time when hunting for shirts in the size you want, select from Men’s, Women’s, Unisex or Youth from the Fit menu.

Keep reading for more tips to help you choose the best shirt giveaways to reflect your brand.
