Workwear logos: what you need to know

Workwear logos: what you need to know

Customised uniforms with clear and prominent logos serve an essential purpose to enable your customers and members of the public where relevant to see who works for your company, and who to ask for help if they need it. But the value of customised workwear goes beyond merely helping to identify staff – corporate uniforms help promote your brand, present a consistent company image, convey professionalism, and distinguish you from your competition.

For refuse handlers and local authorities, utilities and construction businesses, or facilities management and contract cleaning, branded uniforms can be a crucial part of everyday workwear.

What to consider when designing corporate workwear

Contego Safety Solutions can help choose the right workwear for your business and feature your logo on your company uniforms. Thanks to our experience in producing quality branded uniforms, we can advise on optimum logo placement and positioning. Our designers work with your branding team to bring you the latest technology in branding options to produce practical and smart solutions that encapsulate your brand exactly. We also have a wide range of options that keep up to date with trends in professional clothing, suit the roles your teams are undertaking, and help keep staff safe.

In buildings maintenance or recycling and refuse environments, we can create bespoke reflective transfers on high-vis garments. To produce clear and crisp results, we’ll let you know the artwork file type you need to provide to achieve the best quality finish.

Heat seal or embroidery?

When it comes to customised workwear, there are two primary methods – embroidery and heat seal. At times, an embroidered shirt pocket logo or embroidering on tailored workwear is best. Other times, a heat-sealed logo on a t-shirt or jacket back is most suitable, especially if a larger format logo is needed. We know that company uniforms need to withstand the rigour of manual work and look smart after potentially hundreds of spins in industrial washing machines. Our branding methods are designed to last and won’t fray or fade.

Getting uniforms to your workforce

Once your design is approved, our in-house machines are capable of producing up to 3,000 branded items a day, and we can dispatch items within a week. When distributing branded uniforms, we offer a WEARPACK® service. We’ll pack and label packages of workwear so that your staff can quickly receive the uniform items they need.

Replacing branded workwear quickly

Damaged or worn uniforms can reflect poorly on your business, so we’ve made corporate workwear easy to reorder. At Contego Safety Solutions, we keep your artwork and uniform designs on file so we can get new uniforms to your frontline quickly. Our Online Management Portal makes the process simple and allows you to set parameters around which staff can reorder workwear.

Contego Safety Solutions stocks a wide range of corporate workwear, protective clothing and PPE, including our own WEARMASTER® range.
