The Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI) of Trevose, PA, announced the debut of an all-new Wearables® magazine featuring enhanced embroidery coverage and nearly doubling its circulation to 28,000 apparel decorators and distributors.
The award-winning Wearables is published 10 times a year by ASI and is the promotional product industry’s number-one source for distributors and apparel decorators.
Wearables’ expanded print and online circulation includes screen printers, embroiderers and distributors, making the magazine the largest creative apparel publication in the industry, with more opportunities than ever for suppliers to promote their products, services and equipment. According to ASI research, 87% of readers say they rely on Wearables for product ideas.
“Whether they get their apparel and embroidery news and info online or in print, I’m certain readers will love the power and breadth of the new Wearables, featuring easy-to-understand strategies and business tips, along with numerous ways to connect with new and existing business partners across the social media spectrum,” said Rollender.
The January “speed” issue helps readers master rush orders, eliminate time wasters and sell more apparel. This month’s trend report features leopard print, golf gear and 3-D embroidery. The issue also includes features on quality digitizing, wearable tech and imprinting tips for spiritwear, as well as a special embroidery solutions section dedicated to embroidery and multimedia projects, equipment maintenance, new equipment and software, and a redesigned screen-printing innovations section.
