Storm Creek Regular Stock vs. Made-To-Order

Custom apparel is becoming increasingly popular among corporate clients in the promotional products industry.  It makes a statement. It adds value. It uniquely highlights a brand in a way that other decorated apparel can’t. Plus, it makes end-users feel like their wearing their company’s own brand. They might say, “Wow, our company has its own line of clothing!” Which certainly provides a much more attractive option for them. It becomes something they’ll wear for years to come.

At Storm Creek, we call our custom apparel Made-to-Order or MTO. So what does that mean? What’s the difference between the regular stock and the MTO counterparts? Well, read on.

The regular stock is apparel is purchased as-is. It comes with Storm Creek branding on the neck tag, back yoke, and flag label. The Made-To-Order (MTO) apparel is a fully customized line that comes without any Storm Creek branding. The MTO styles leave room for customers to place their own branding behind the neck label, add additional decoration in any desired location, and add custom zipper pulls to each garment using our Zipperize℠ line of custom pull colors (16 in total).

Made-To-Order is available in three styles

  • MTO3120/MTO3125 Quilted Thermolite® Vest
  • MTO 3160/MTO3165 Quilted Thermolite® Jacket
  • MTO 4000/MTO4005 High-stretch Fleece-lined Softshell Jacket
