Towels are an essential item for any household, hotel, or spa. They are used to dry off after a shower, clean surfaces, and wipe away sweat during exercise. If you own a shop and are looking to offer your customers personalized towels, it's a great way to add a unique touch to your business and make it stand out from competitors. Here are some tips on how to order custom towels for your shop.


Choose the Type of Towel You Want to Offer


The first step is to decide what type of towel you want to offer. There are various options available, including bath towels, hand towels, beach towels, and sports towels.


Consider the purpose of the towel and your target audience before making a decision. For example, if you are targeting gym-goers, sports towels may be the best option.


Select the Towel Material




Cotton is the most popular material for custom towels. It is soft, absorbent, and durable, making it perfect for bath towels and hand towels. Cotton towels are easy to care for and can withstand multiple washes without losing their quality. They are available in a variety of textures and weights, from lightweight and smooth to plush and fluffy.



Microfiber towels are made from synthetic fibers, and they are known for their softness, lightweight, and quick-drying ability. They are ideal for sports towels or beach towels as they are highly absorbent and can dry quickly. Microfiber towels are also less prone to developing odor and bacteria, making them perfect for people who are allergic to natural fibers.



Bamboo towels are an eco-friendly option as bamboo is a renewable resource. These towels are soft, durable, and absorbent. They are also naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, making them a great choice for people with sensitive skin. Bamboo towels are available in a variety of colors and sizes, making them versatile for different uses.




Polyester towels are made from synthetic fibers, and they are known for their durability and moisture-wicking properties. They are perfect for sports towels and workout towels as they can absorb sweat quickly and dry fast. Polyester towels are also resistant to wrinkles, shrinkage, and fading, making them easy to care for.



Linen towels are made from flax fibers, and they are known for their strength, absorbency, and softness. They are perfect for bath towels and kitchen towels as they can dry dishes quickly and absorb water easily. Linen towels are also lightweight and breathable, making them perfect for summer months.

Choose the Size and Color


Once you've decided on the material and type of towel, the next step is to choose the size and color. Towels come in different sizes, ranging from small hand towels to oversized beach towels. It's important to consider the purpose of the towel and the preferences of your target audience when selecting the size. For the color, choose a color that aligns with your brand and appeals to your customers.


Decide on the Personalization Method


There are several personalization methods available, including embroidery, screen printing, and digital printing.


Embroidery is the most common method and involves stitching the design onto the towel.


Screen printing involves applying the design onto the towel using a stencil and ink.


Digital printing involves printing the design directly onto the towel using a digital printer.


Consider the design complexity and your budget when choosing the personalization method.
