Choosing Embroidery & Printing for Your Personalised Workwear

Choosing Embroidery & Printing for Your Personalised Workwear
Posted: 6th April 2021

Embroidered and printed workwear is a worthwhile investment for a business for many different reasons. Your employees are responsible for how your company image is perceived and providing branded workwear helps to create a professional look for your business.

Workwear comes in a range of styles, colours and sizes. This versatility makes it suitable for a range of different industries and suitable for many different working environments. But with so many different types of workwear to choose from, it can be difficult to decide if you will require printing or embroidery. When making this decision it all comes down to the type of fabric that you want to personalise.

Woven Fabric & Softshell Workwear

It is popular for workwear to be made of woven fabric, such as sweatshirts and hoodies, baseball caps and beanies, and softshell jackets and fleeces. This is because it is comfortable and trendy and can be used for a range of different industries.

Woven fabric workwear can be branded with your company name or logo by either printing or embroidery and the casual design of these types of garments naturally provide a large selection of different areas that you can have the logo placed, allowing for different sizing options for your company logo to be displayed. You could choose a small, subtle logo or full-on branding.

Heavy Duty & Waterproof Workwear

Thick, heavy duty and waterproof workwear exists to protect your employees from the worst weather conditions. As fabric technology has progressed through the years, this type of workwear has become more lightweight, meaning that it can be used for many different roles within a company, with outdoor workers benefiting the most. Wind and waterproof workwear helps to keep employees comfortable in all weather conditions.

As this type of workwear is designed to protect against the wind and rain, you should avoid compromising the material by embroidering holes into it. Printing is the best method of personalising heavy duty and waterproof workwear.

High-Visibility Workwear

High-Visibility workwear is the choice of clothing for industries that work outdoors late at night and in other places that high visibility is needed, such as on the roadside. The bright fluorescent colours means that your employees can be seen clearly in their working environment. With personalised high visibility clothing, your employees can be distinguished from other people in the area wearing high visibility clothing and quickly identified.

Hi-visibility clothing can be made from either a soft material, to provide warmth and comfort for those working outside, or it can be made from a heavy duty, waterproof material. 

The most common logo placement on workwear is the chest area of jackets and polo shirts, however, you can also add a large logo to the back of the workwear, and brand many other types of clothing such as trousers and hats.
