The Mountain Wholesale News: Look No Further for The Hottest Back to School T-Shirt Styles
Get Your Customers Back To School in Style: Youth Wholesale T-Shirts & The Collegiate Collection
School is barely out of session, but if you walk the aisles of some of the big box retailers, you will already notice the slow and steady creep of school supplies making their way onto the shelves. But, it’s only June, you might say. How can loose leaf paper and spiral notebooks possibly be on anyone’s mind?! The old idiom, “The early bird catches the worm,” is definitely at work here, and when it comes to getting everything ready for back to school, there seems to be a lot of early birds out there!
But, back to school essentials are not what they used to be. Today, there is just as much time, effort, and most importantly money spent on fresh new apparel as there is on pens and paper. As fashion trends trickle down to tots and teens and every age in between, you want to make sure your store is leading the pack. This is why it is so important for you to evaluate your inventory of Mountain tees right now to see how you can optimize your back to school t-shirt selection and maximize your profits.
Look for Your Favorite Mountain T-Shirt Designs in Youth Sizes
Did you know that so many of the Mountain’s signature designs featured on our classic adult tees are also available in youth sizes? This includes bestselling Dean Russo tees and many popular designs from our Pet, Zoo Animals, and Aquatic collections as well. As you flip through the 2016 Mountain Wholesale catalog, just keep an eye out for the little yellow smiley face icon. This indicates which designs are available in youth sizes.
Not sure which youth tees will become top sellers in your store? Our bestsellers lists are always a good starting point when you can’t decide which designs you want to pick up. Updated monthly, these lists give you an idea of what is trending among all of the Mountain’s wholesale customers. The youth t-shirt bestsellers list is currently dominated by dinosaur tees, but You are Here and Best Pals have proven to be perennial favorites among the non-dinosaur themed tees.
Also popular with the kids is the Mountain’s bold Big Face Collection. Stock up on popular animal designs, including Dolphin Face (pictured on the right), Wicked Nasty Shark (a frequent bestseller), and Big Face Baby Orangutan. These designs are sure to stand out to parents who want to score some unique t-shirts for their kids for the upcoming school year–nothing is worse than showing up on the first day of school wearing the same shirt as 3 other students!
Let parents know that your store offers fun and exciting youth tees by The Mountain to meet all of their back to school apparel shopping needs.
The Collegiate Collection – Amp Your School Spirit!
If selling youth t-shirts by The Mountain is not quite your bread and butter, you may be able to find your next big bestseller in our awesome Collegiate Collection. With over 100 schools represented from all across the country, our Collegiate line has a wide appeal with students, alumni, and college sports fans.
Maybe you are speaking to a recent high school grad who is excited to get some cool new gear featuring the college they will attend in the fall. Or perhaps you have a proud parent in your shop looking for a t-shirt or hoodie to wear to support their newly minted college freshman or graduate. And don’t count out the super fan or alumni who must have the latest and greatest apparel featuring their favorite team or Alma mater. There is something for everyone in the Collegiate Collection!
The profit potential is huge with the Collegiate line, especially if you are located in an area where there is a big following for a particular school. We are proud to offer unique graphic tees for some of the biggest universities, including The University of Florida, Boston College, West Virginia University, and The University of Nebraska. Check out the entire list of schools to see how you can capitalize this summer.
Also, stay tuned for the newest version of the Collegiate Collection catalog scheduled to be released later this summer. We are excited to be adding several more schools to our growing list –so if you don’t see a school near you now, check back soon!
