The ePromos Golf Shirt Guide
Ever wonder what makes one golf shirt different then another? Or what pima, piqué and mercerized mean? Well, here is everything you ever wanted to know about golf shirts (and more).
The material a shirt is made out of is very important. It can determine the use of the shirts (casual play, hot weather, etc.), how the shirt feels, how it fits and drapes and also how expensive the shirt can be.
Golf Outerwear: Different Styles for Every Season
As unpredictable as the weather tends to be, your promotional outerwear should suit the seasons. Below are our picks for spring, summer and fall.
Spring – As the weather begins to warm, you have those occasional days where it is cooler than you wished. A promotional wind shirt, like the V-Neck Windshirt by Port Authority Sport Tek can help on those days when you get an unexpected chill.
Summer – With sunny days ahead and the heat of the summer sun blazing down, what can you do if you are on the 4th hole and suddenly a dark cloud rolls across the sky? Don’t let your golf outing be ruined by a freak rainstorm. Instead, a promotional poncho is the perfect item to keep the game going.
Fall – When the weather fluctuates between summer and the cooler fall climate things can get very unpredictable. Having an imprinted jacket like the Clubhouse Jacket by Devon & Jones is perfect. It is light-weight so it won’t restrict your swing, and it definitely keeps you warm on your way from the water hazard.
Upcoming Promotional Event Dates
National Hospital Healthcare Week and Teacher Appreciation Week occur in May. These are holidays set aside to recognize the people in these professions.
Items like promotional awards and recognition gifts are the best way to reward hard working teachers and medical folks for their dedication to two very important industries. People in the education and the healthcare fields will be very appreciative of such a wonderful gift.
Plan ahead and take advantage of the following promotional opportunities. You’ll find a wide choice of personalized products as well as pre-decorated items that feature unique messages and slogans to help you celebrate your event.

Challenge: The ERS Foundation seeks to express a warm, hearty “thank you” to charity golf tournament participants
If you’re charged with raising funds for a non-profit, then you know what’s involved in the planning and hosting of fundraising events-and that many times the success or failure of those efforts directly impact your organization’s ability to secure the funds it needs to accomplish its goals. You also likely know that when you uncover fundraising success, it’s important to maintain it for as long as you can!
ePromos is a close ally and friend of the Emmory Reagan Shapses (ERS) Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to the research, treatment and ultimate cure of tuberous sclerosis, a rare genetic disease that often causes suffers and their families to live under the daily threat of seizures, tumors, organ failure, mental disability and worse.
The Foundation’s premier annual charity golf tournament is considered fundraising gold: the event, with its $500 to $10,000 dinner and player sponsorships, has so far contributed more than $3 million towards the research and treatment of tuberous sclerosis. The all-day affair includes breakfast, 18 holes, cocktails and a lavish dinner, as well as auctions, raffles and contests-like the chance for participants to win a luxury car or $1 million for a hole-in-one. Because the event is so important to the ERS Foundation, its members decided this year to give something memorable back to participants to thank them for their generosity.
Solution: “Welcome” backpacks stuffed with branded golf goodies start the day off right
The Foundation drew upon its ties with ePromos to help conceive just the right tournament gift- a “welcome” drawstring backpack jam-packed with golf-themed items guests could use during the day’s activities. Among the goodies: sun block, golf balls, binoculars, a water bottle and a cap-all branded with the foundation’s logo to build a sense of community among participants during the day while reminding them of the event-and the foundation-for many tomorrows.
Result: This year’s tournament and promotion score big; plans for next year are underway Tournament participants raised $900,000 during this year’s tournament, all for the research, treatment and eventual cure of tuberous sclerosis. We’re told that the goody bags were a big hit with the golfers; and the ERS Foundation is already dreaming of ways to top this year’s success.
