A Beginner’s guide to custom workwear

So you’ve decided you need some customised workwear. Congratulations! Choosing to have custom workwear is an excellent decision with many benefits, including making you look professional, helping with staff team building, providing you with free advertising and it might even win you some extra customers too. We’re not going to focus on those advantages today though, we’re assuming that you’re here because you’re a fabulously intelligent person who has already decided to reap all the benefits that custom uniforms give, but maybe just needs a bit of help with what to do next. So without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about ordering custom workwear.

First thing’s first.

Find a supplier. You’re already here! That was easy. Seriously though, we honestly believe we offer some of the best customer service out there and truly care about impressing our customers. You can check out some of our other articles or blogs for why you should choose us.

Work out what you want.

We’re always on hand to help of course, but it does help to at least have a vague idea of what you’re after before you come to place your order. Our online catalogue can be a good place to get inspiration about what garments would be right for you. Even if you’ve already got a clear image of what you want it’s still worth checking out what we can provide, we offer a wide range of garment styles and fits so you may find something even better than your initial choice.

Getting technical.

Embroidery or screen print. There are other posts which go into more detail on the differences and benefits between embroidering or screen printing your custom items, so we won’t go into too much detail here. To put it in its most basic terms, screen printing is good for large designs or high volume orders, whereas embroidery is perfect for big and small orders, detailed and colourful designs, or highly customised work (individual names, for instance).

What’s digitising?

If you’ve never ordered a logo to be stitched onto a garment before then an extra charge getting added to your bill can seem a bit off-putting. Digitising a logo however, is perhaps the most important part of the whole embroidering process, transforming the logo from whatever file format it was sent in (sometimes even a photograph) into an image that can be read by our embroidery machines. A poorly digitised image will produce poor results that no amount of world- class machines and good thread can mask, which is why we place so much importance on quality digitising –it’s worth it.

Finishing touches.

Is there anything else we can assist you with today? Your order might be all you need for now, but if you already know that in a months’ time you’ll need another five custom polos it could be worth your while (and your wallet) to order them now. Both embroidery and screen print work on a sliding scale, meaning the more garments you order the cheaper it is. We’re not encouraging you to unnecessarily stock up on items you don’t need, but if you already know what garments you’ll require in the near future it makes more sense to order them all in one go and save some money. And that’s all there is to it.

Ordering your custom workwear with us couldn’t be simpler, so what are you waiting for? Browsing our online catalogue is a click away, or contact us directly if you want a more personal touch.
