There are dozens of great trade magazines for the decorated apparel industry.

In most cases subscriptions to trade magazines are free. The only “catch” is that in order for a trade magazine to call you a “subscriber” you must be in the business. That means you typically need a company name when filling out their forms. Most publications now have online versions. Simply follow the links to their home page and fill out their online subscription forms.
