Tips for Designing Employee Uniforms

Custom uniforms are a great way to promote your business through your employees, they also encourage a sense of community and pride within the employees which helps boost team moral.

Your custom design will depend on a few factors like the material you choose, style of garment, and color. With so many design and style options it can be confusing to make a decision. Here are a few tips to helps you choose the best employee uniforms:

Fabric Options
The fabric you choose is very important to the overall outcome of your uniforms. You should choose a material that is both functional for your employees to wear and practical for your logo design. Natural fibers like cotton, silk, wool, and linen, work best with embroidery. Cotton is most practical for everyday use and is simple to clean which is ideal for a work uniform.

Color
The color you choose is very important to how your logo or design will look. Certain colors can truly make your logo stand-out while the wrong color can do the opposite. White, black, and navy blue are good colors for contrasting your logo against.

Heat Transfer Printing VS EmbroideryTips for Designing Employee Uniforms
You may opt for heat transfer printing or embroidery for your custom uniforms. Heat transfer printing works best for larger designs. For example, if you have a logo that will take up a lot of space on the uniform heat transfer printing will be less expensive than embroidery and more practical. If you are choosing a smaller design like a small logo on the left chest, an embroidered design will give it a clean and professional look.

Employee Feedback
While designing your employee uniforms it is smart to consult the people who will be wearing them. Although you don’t have to use all your employees’ ideas, it could be helpful to know what they like. They may be able to help with different variations of the uniform like a summer/ winter option or specific shirt styles they want to wear. Remember, you want your employees to be proud to wear your uniform, so it is best that they actually like the design.

With these tips, we hope you can create the perfect custom uniforms for your company.
