Branded Uniforms: Printed or Embroidered Logo?

Print or embroidery? Regardless, logo branded uniforms help promote your business.

Uniforms undoubtedly offer multiple benefits, including fostering team spirit and promoting your business. When you are due for new uniforms, consider getting branded uniforms. Displaying your company’s logo or name on your high-quality uniform leaves a professional impression on your customers and clients. Adding your custom logo to your outfits is almost always a smart move. The biggest consideration is whether you should print or embroider your design onto your branded uniforms. Here are some tips on how to decide which method is best for your uniform needs.

Work Setting

Although every business should strive to present themselves professionally, different work settings allow for varying definitions of what is considered appropriate. Therefore, the design should reflect the tone of the workplace. Printed logos and designs are suitable for more casual settings, like quick-service restaurants or college-town bars. Printing allows for bigger and bolder designs, which would be appropriate for fun, lively food service. Conversely, some businesses that need to uphold a more professional image, such as up-scale chefs or customer service representatives, should choose more subdued and refined embroidered design.

Wear and Tear

Businesses should also consider the amount of wear and tear their branded uniforms would face in their industry. Mechanic or construction uniforms are prone to getting dirty, getting caught on parts, and may need frequent replacing. In this case, printed designs may not hold up for long since these uniforms need regular washing. Printing logos yield more extensive, more visible designs than embroidered ones. A small embroidered design may look more professional up close, but can very quickly look worn out if the stitches come undone.

Fabric Type

T-shirts and other light or thin material clothing suit printed designs. Primarily if the staff performs more physically demanding work, screen printed uniforms are more cost-effective if you anticipate replacing these garments often. T-shirts have plenty of room on the front and back of the shirt to print larger and bolder logos. Items of clothing that use heavier fabrics, like polos, dress shirts, and lab coats, display embroidered designs better and last longer too. For professionals who are required to wear these types of garments anyway, decorating the branded uniforms with embroidery is more polished and esteemed looking. 

Overall, if pricing is the determining factor in which method you choose, there are multiple aspects to weigh before you make your final choice. You should consider the type of fabric, the complexity of your design, and the number of clothing articles you need to order.
