The Branded Uniform Effect

With the new season here, change is in the air. People are looking for new inspiration in the workplace to help pick up the momentum again. You can help your team succeed and keep them warm and healthy at the same time with a new uniform…

A uniform empowers your staff

When your team has the same dress code it helps to knit your staff together and helps nurture a culture of working as a cohesive unit. Appearing as a team like this will boost morale among employees and gives them a better sense of belonging. All employers and employees across the board are reminded by their dress code that they are the face of the company and this can inspire them to level up. If you’re on the fence about getting a uniform for your staff or updating your current one, we’re here to encourage you to make the investment, and to help you with the decisions involved in getting it done.

How do uniforms effect your brand?

Your brand is the personality of your company. A uniform provides a great channel on which to convey a distinguished first impression of your brand to your customers. Seeing employees dressed uniformly, in professional clothing with everyone neatly presented does wonders for your brand. It has the impact of helping your organisation appear professional and trustworthy. Customers need to be able to trust your company and your people before they can trust your product or service, and buying from you.

Where to start with the branding options?

There are endless different branding methods and options which can be used to create your own unique look with your chosen apparel. There is embroidery, screen print, branded patches, full colour sublimations and much more. However, often the less is more approach works best with branding onto uniforms. In order to create a polished executive look, keeping the small details of the branding in mind makes for the best dressed employees.

Custom artwork creates intriguing impact…

Getting custom artwork designed especially for your uniform and apparel application is a great idea, and has made for some stunning results with many of our client’s apparel line up. Branding on the less conspicuous areas on the garments create an elegant look that elevates the perceived quality and personality of your chosen uniform. For best effect integrate your branding to the areas like the sleeves, across the top of the shoulders, down the side seams or across the hood or back.

Choosing the right branding…

It also really helps to know the process used in the different branding methods when branding onto garments. With so many different fabric choices out there it can go wrong very quickly. Especially when the material of the garment doesn’t agree with the branding method chosen. For example, if heat is applied in the branding process of a polyester beanie, it is likely to shrink the material under the branded section and it will be damaged beyond repair. We make sure incidences like that won’t happen by applying our 39 years of past experience and the industry knowledge into creating your garments.
