Summer clothing, uniforms, and apparel!

Summer is the season of sun, warmth, and holidays, and the good news is that it is only a few months away! Summer sees the longest days, the shortest nights, and offers prime conditions to enjoy all that the great outdoors have to offer. When the sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the wind is nowhere to be found these days are great to get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful country.

Summer is a great season to be active, get involved with a sport, or relax with family and friends. Motivation to get up and moving tends to increase over the summer months as weather improves.

To be comfortable outdoors you need quality clothing perfect for your kind of activity. At EmbroidMe, we supply and brand a huge range of summer clothing options. This includes t-shirts, polos, sports team uniforms, hospitality uniforms, and retail uniforms.

Workwear, More Than Hi-Vis Clothing

Workwear is often closely associated with hi-vis clothing and while this is true it does not encompass the breadth of clothing options available for various business industries. Workwear clothing ranges from retail, hospitality, and trades people uniforms, to heavy duty construction apparel and clothing for workers in the great outdoors. Staff need to be comfortable while looking professional, so it’s important to get clothing that’s both functional and smart. With such a range of available products the choices can be overwhelming so this article separates workwear into three categories to help with the decision making process.

Many industries require durable, professional, and high quality team uniforms that staff can wear while at work. This is essential for hospitality staff working in restaurants, cafes, and entertainment venues such as cinemas. Team uniforms can include shirts, aprons, caps, pants, vests, jackets, and much more.

The trades industry has high demand on uniforms as staff often navigate confined spaces, operate in dirty environments, and also need to look professional when greeting clients. Each clothing range has different styles, sizing, and colours so is important to get the combination right. We have products that are perfect for builders, electricians, and plumbers. We have a showroom full of garments we welcome you to come in a view.

Warehouse staff and outdoor workers can also have the same demands on staff uniforms as they operate in varying environments and climates. Warehouses can get incredibly cold in winter and hot in summer, so staff require a uniform that caters for both extremes. This is the same for yardmen, school caretakers, and gardeners. Uniforms and outdoor workwear apparel must be easily customised to reflect the weather.

Get the Most from Your Marketing Spend ~ Branding Apparel, Uniforms, and Promotional Products

The word Brand under a magnifying glass illustrating marketing aBuild your brand

When considering branding it’s easy to immediately think of large multi-national businesses. These businesses would have spent many years and dollars to become recognised in the marketplace for a particular product or service. It may seem like any small to medium enterprise (SME) wanting a strong brand must spend exorbitant capital to achieve this however this isn’t the case.

It can be natural for SME’s to disregard the need to build a brand as customer service and daily tasks can be more pressing. No matter what industry a business operates in, or its size, a reputable brand can achieve business growth as the company will be known in the industry and among its target audience.

It’s important to be realistic when building a brand and accommodate for the stage a business is in. It would be unreasonable for a start-up to try achieve the same level of branding as an international business that’s been operating for a century. That said, there are some fundamental branding principals that every business should consider as all organisations need to be actively marketing and seen in the marketplace.

Branded apparel, uniforms, and promotional products are easy and cost effective methods to build brand recognition among customers and prospects, and is a proven marketing method.

From a client’s perspective how do your staff present themselves? Cafes that don’t have a uniform, even just the same styled branded shirt, give a different impression than a team in professionally branded uniform apparel. Same can be said for trade’s people arriving on-site without any form of branding or company representation. A clearly visible brand gives credibility.

What makes a strong brand?

Consistency

A brand is more than just a logo on a letterhead. Strong brands are consistent, and are uniform across all business collateral. This is the same for staff appearance. By having a consistent uniform across staff, sports teams, or in retail and hospitality businesses it displays your organisation as professional.

Quality

Products have different life expectancies and some materials last longer than others. Does your branded apparel, uniforms, business shirts, jackets, or hi-vis clothing look tired, faded, or well-worn? Uniforms represent your business and speak volumes about your brand. EmbroidMe supplies and brands top quality apparel, uniforms, clothing, and promotional products so that your brand will be noticed and professional.

Clarity

A small logo on a letterhead or in the office’s reception alone doesn’t build a strong and credible brand. A brand needs to be seen. Brands need to be clear and visible. When it comes to branding careful consideration should be taken to think about style, design, and colours. EmbroidMe supplies a huge range of products in various styles, colours, and designs, so that branded apparel and uniforms builds your brand.

What’s Trending in the Promotional Products Industry for 2015?

With the new year underway, promotional marketing experts have spent January scouring the promotional products industry for the most innovative ways to promote your brand.

May 12

Items that could be used every day and make your life easier are a big trend as marketers want to ensure their products serve to benefit their prospective customers and make a daily impression.

Ever-popular items like pens, bags and cups appear with new innovations every year. For instance, bags with reflectors built in for safety are new this year, as are pens that can also be used as a stylus with touch devices. Even ceramic mugs with quirky additions like a chalkboard finish for writing notes on them are available. Every year, suppliers come up with creative solutions to liven up promo products.

As usual, we saw a huge surge in the number of tech gadgets as well. Chargers, Bluetooth speakers and triple USB ports were in high demand. Multitasking items like wireless headphones are indicative of our modern on-the-go lifestyles. Now, with the number of smartphones booming, accessories and cases are also increasing in popularity every year. Items like phone wallets with stands, tastefully branded, are popping up everywhere.

Wellness is a growing trend in promotional products. Water bottles are a big hit, especially those you can hold while you run, and some are even collapsible. Related to this trend are fruit infuser drops to flavour the recommended eight cups of water a day.

Sunglasses are still as popular as always, featured in a variety of fun colours and stylish options.
Customising apparel is a mainstay of promotional marketing. Recognizing the longevity of promotional apparel items, marketers are opting into sublimation printing for brilliantly coloured, long-lasting imagery that won’t fade as the item goes through multiple wearings and washings.

Video marketing is taking the promotional products industry by storm! Imagine opening a designer box of chocolates to find a promotional video inside – what a way to make an impression! Logoed packaging in general, “marketing in a box,” is becoming a big trend.

We’re excited to see how these new trends play out through the year.
