Feb. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Sportswear Inc., the largest e-commerce provider of customizable apparel for retailers, media properties, schools, and colleges announces the latest developments for the Campus Team Shop online store solution.  The latest upgrades give college partners and licensors more opportunities to grow revenue, decrease costs, and build their brand.  

“Over the past couple months, we’ve enhanced our platform to better suit the needs and opportunities for colleges and universities”, says Maggie Fogel, Client Services Director at Sportswear Inc.  New developments to the Campus Team Shop solution include:

•   New embellishment methods:  Sportswear Inc. now offers on-demand, direct-to-garment printing and appliqué for college stores.  Additionally, the company recently launched its line of customizable, on-demand appliqué for collegiate apparel.
•   New vintage designs:  Colleges can now select from dozens of distressed-style, vintage design templates.  The vintage designs give t-shirts a well-loved and slightly worn style popular with younger shoppers.
•   New custom sports and activity lists:   The new feature enables colleges to better serve the entire campus community including all sports teams, academic departments, ROTC, student government, IMA, and dormitories, specific to their campus.  
•   Customizable options in Spanish:  Colleges can now offer their fans the ability personalize their apparel with words such as “Padre” (father), “Madre” (mother), and more.  
•   Marketing tools and support:  The company has developed new marketing tools including the College Marketing Best Practices Guide and the quarterly Campus Team Shop Newsletter designed to help partner colleges with promotion and online sales.  

The developments continue to build on the Campus Team Shop ecommerce solution created for college athletic departments, alumni associations, bookstores, and other campus groups.  Campus Team Shop offers turnkey, online stores featuring direct-to-consumer order processing, dynamic consumer product personalization, and customizable apparel and accessory products using officially licensed marks.
