3 minute read
In the highly competitive world of apparel, it's important to stand out from the crowd. One way to do that is by using high-quality blanks for your products. In this post, we'll discuss the benefits of investing in premium blanks and why they are critical for your apparel business.
Enhanced Comfort and Durability
One of the main benefits of using high-quality blanks is enhanced comfort and durability. Better materials lead to a more comfortable finished product that customers will love. Additionally, premium blanks last longer than cheaper alternatives, which means fewer returns and more satisfied customers.
Another benefit of using premium blanks is visual appeal. Better materials lead to a better-looking finished product. This is especially important in the world of apparel, where looks matter. With premium blanks, you can create a high-end product that will attract customers and set your business apart from the competition.
While premium blanks may cost more upfront, they can potentially save money in the long run. Because they last longer than cheaper alternatives, you won't have to replace them as often. This can lead to significant cost savings over time, making quality blanks a smarter investment for your business.
Impact on Customer Satisfaction and Brand Perception
Using high-quality blanks can significantly impact customer satisfaction and brand perception. Customers are more likely to be satisfied with a comfortable, durable, and visually appealing product. By using quality over cheaper alternatives, you can create a better product that will leave your customers happy and coming back for more.
Additionally, using high-quality blanks can enhance brand perception. When customers see that you're using premium materials, they'll associate your brand with quality and luxury. This can increase brand loyalty and appeal to more customers in the long run.
Features of High-Quality Blanks
Now that we've discussed the benefits of using high-quality blanks, let's take a closer look at some of the features that make them stand out:
- Long-lasting product: Better materials lead to a longer lifespan of the product, which means fewer returns and a reduction in products ending up in landfills.
- Fit and shape: Premium blanks tend to provide a better fit and maintain their shape over time, which means your customers will look great in your products for longer.
- Blackest black: When it comes to your black tees, colour saturation is key. Our blanks can provide a deeper, richer black that will make your products stand out for longer.
- Best for DTG and providing the smoothest print face: Better quality cotton can result in a smoother surface for printing, which makes them ideal for direct-to-garment (DTG) printing. They also tend to have a smooth surface that makes them easier to print on.
- Side seams > tubular: Side seams provide a better fit and avoid twisting, while tubular blanks can be prone to issues with fit and twisting, Side seams also allow for easier alignment when lining up while printing.
- Retail-ready solution: Premium blanks can be a retail-ready solution for businesses looking to create a high-end product. They provide the quality and luxury that customers expect from high-end brands.

How do we distinguish a Quality Blank?
Cotton is a popular material used in many blank products due to its breathability, comfort, and durability. When selecting cotton, it’s essential to consider the fabric weight. The weight of the fabric can affect the look and feel of the product. For example, a lighter-weight fabric may be more suitable for t-shirts, while a heavier-weight fabric may work better for hoodies or jackets.
The quality of the raw materials used also significantly affects the garment’s end quality. AS Colour only uses premium cotton, so AS Colour blanks have the industry’s best finish and hand feel. Using only premium cotton gives a much smoother printing surface, ensuring your selected decoration technique will look better and last longer.
When selecting your garments, make sure you purchase from reputable suppliers; look for suppliers with a track record of providing premium materials that are ethically sourced and sustainable.
Thankfully AS Colour has done the hard work for you. All AS Colour blanks have been sustainably sourced using the highest quality raw materials, undergone rigorous development and testing, and have been certified and are trusted by many streetwear brands as their preferred premium blank.
Investing in high-quality blanks is critical for your apparel business. Premium materials lead to a more comfortable, durable, and visually appealing finished product. They can also save you money in the long run and enhance customer satisfaction and brand perception. By using high-quality blanks, you can create a high-end product that will set your business apart from the competition and attract more customers.
