Teamwear clothing isn't just for sports teams. The products also can make for memorable mementos from teambuilding exercises or corporate social responsibility activities.

If you're looking for new team apparel options, Broder Bros., Co., one the country’s largest distributors of trade, private label, and retail apparel brands to the imprinting, embroidery, and promotional product industries, recently released its 2011 teamwear catalog.

“We’ve made our catalog end-user friendly by putting a major emphasis on color, which is a key element to capturing any teamwear sale. We’ve added team logos to our products to give the end user a strong visual of what the product will look like decorated,” says Steven Valeri, VP of marketing for the Trevose, PA-based company. “We believe this catalog will be an essential sales tool for anyone selling teamwear.”
