Our visual proof allows you to see exactly what you’ve ordered; check the artwork colours, layout and text. As this is the final check before we proceed with your order, it’s super important you’re happy with everything on the proof.
Here are the most important things to look over as you review:
1. Spelling/Correct Text
While we use our intuition, often times we can’t spell-check the artwork you send us. Please review all of the text on your visual proof to make sure it’s correct.
If you don’t supply us with an artwork size, we will use our best judgment. Either way, it’s best for you to get out the old measuring tape and make sure the sizes we’ve stated are exactly the size you’d like. Often times it’s hard to know exactly the size it will come out without seeing the true measurement in front of you (or placed across one of your own t-shirts to give you the best idea).
Of course, if you want something printed or embroidered on the left-chest position but you see we’ve placed it in the centre, make sure to let us know so we end up printing exactly where you envision.
The last one is a big one. If your company has specific brand colours, you’ll need to supply us with those Pantone shades so we can add them to your proof.
We won’t go ahead with production until you have signed off on the proof. Once you’ve done so, you’ll receive another confirmation email letting you know your order is off to production. Remember that changes can’t be made once you’ve confirmed the proof, so better to ask questions and make sure everything is to your liking before approval.
Our top tips that will help you save money and get you to your final decision in the most profitable and successful way.
1. WORK CLOTHING IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR COMPANY IMAGE
The right uniform must achieve two things. It must convey the right image, and 2 it must work with the nature of your job, for example be practical. Choose professional uniforms that are in line with the approach of the company and its corporate image. As far as possible, the range of colours must match the colours of the company. This small detail can help win future customers because your business will look like a real organisation.
2. DO NOT RUSH YOUR CHOICE
What may be ideal for one type of business may be totally inappropriate for another.
Work uniforms are the image you convey to your customers, which is why it is very important to take the time to choose the work-wear that best suits your needs. You must ensure that the work clothes you've chosen are consistent with the image you want to portray.
3. FUNCTIONALITY OF THE CLOTHES
You have to consider what work your employees do. Analyse the specific functionality of each job, as you may need extra pockets to carry things, trousers with knee pads, high visibility wear and so on. These small details can be the most important points you have to take into account when buying work clothes.
4. LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES
As mentioned above, if you are looking at uniforms for staff working in your business, you must ensure that your employees have the right clothes. To succeed better in this decision, we recommend that you always have in mind the opinion of your employees and ask them what they need.
5. THE CLIMATE OF THE WORKPLACE
Do your employees work outdoors? If so, you may need more warm clothes in winter, such as fleeces, and jackets to keep warm. The work clothes must be appropriate to the climate and the temperature where employees perform their work. This detail provides comfort, security and confidence to your employees when performing their work.
6. CHOOSE QUALITY GARMENTS
It is very important to look for high quality uniforms, so you will increase the durability of them. Although at first the cost is higher, this will result in significant long-term savings. Low quality garments also tend to deteriorate faster, conveying an unwanted image by the company employees. High quality garments will make the image of your company look better in the eyes of the public.
7. USE WORK CLOTHES TO MARKET YOUR COMPANY
If you customise your work clothes with your logo, company name and other information of interest, you are also taking advantage of the work-wear to publish and promote your business. It's a smart way to advertise your company and your employees on their way to work or back home will be a form of promotion too. This method of advertising like this is very effective.
8. MAKE PROVISIONS FOR SAVING AND PURCHASE VOLUME
Sometimes you pay more than you should when purchasing work uniforms. One of the main reasons is the lack of foresight. If you buy in large volume, you may benefit from significant savings by reducing the costs for your company.
