What to look for when buying logo-embroidered shirts for your business
Whether we like it or not, we are strongly influenced by what we see.You would not look for a fancy French restaurant between a grungy tattoo parlor and a run-down bar.You would look next to an elegant hotel or quaint boutique.You would expect the restaurant to look sophisticated and inviting from the moment you saw it.
The same is true in business attire.You want your appearance to say something about your company-the kinds of things you stand for, as well as the kind of people you are.You want to look professional, trustworthy, and educated.But at the same time, you want to look approachable, friendly and relaxed.
Where do you find this kind of look in business attire?There are many options for casual business attire, but one possibility is found in purchasing logo-embroidered shirts for your business.But what should you look for when buying logo-embroidered shirts?
First of all, you must choose a type of shirt to use for your logo-embroidered shirt.It should be one that is appropriate for your business.Many doctors choose polo shirts.Others may choose a short-sleeved button-down shirt (not too casual, not too dressy).A landscaping company may even choose to use a plain t-shirt.
You may decide that you want two options for your business: a short-sleeved button-down shirt for warm weather, and a long-sleeved polo shirt for cooler weather.This decision should depend on the type of work you do, as well as how much you would like to spend on each shirt.Naturally, a short-sleeved shirt would be less expensive than a long-sleeved shirt.
Second, you must choose a color for your logo-embroidered shirt that is appropriate for your business.The color you choose should be a color or colors that are identifiable with your business.For example, a company whose boxes and stationary always display black and white spots may want to choose black or white for their shirts.
Next, you must decide where you would like to place the logo on your shirts.They should usually have your business name embroidered on the front where a chest pocket would normally be located, and also have the logo-embroidered on the left or right sleeve (if the shirt is short-sleeved).The cost of the embroidery will vary depending on how large the design is and how many different places you want to be embroidered.
Fourth, you must choose what you would like your logo-embroidered shirt to say, or the kind of design you would like it to depict.Some businesses choose to have their business name and then the name of the employee on the front of the shirt. Others choose not to include the employee name.The business name and a slogan or design might be printed on the sleeve.Sometimes logo embroidered shirts have the name of the business printed on the back of the shirt as well.
Once you have decided what you would like the design to look like, you must choose a designer who will convert your business design into a series of stitches that will form the design on the shirt.A designer will help you to decide the type of thread (ex. rayon or polyester), stitch (which will vary depending on the shirt material and size of the design), and backing materials (or the supporting cloth that goes underneath the shirt) that will look and function best with your design.
When shopping for a logo embroidered shirt for your business, you want to be sure that you are purchasing a high quality product.You should take care to find a product that is, and will remain neat and clean.Remember that it would be wise to request a sample of the shirt you will be printing your logo on so that you may judge the quality of the merchandise yourself.
