5 STEPS TO GET THE RIGHT SHIRT FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Choosing the right shirt is not always an easy task. You have many aspects to consider. Follow these 5 easy steps of the B&C shirt’s buyer’s guide and get the right shirt uniform for your employees, whatever your business.

1. CHOOSE THE TYPE OF FABRIC YOU NEED

Depending on how much physical activity your employees will be doing or the temperature they are working in, consider the kind of fabric that is the most suitable for their uniforms.

Are they outside? If they are and the weather gets warm, cotton may be a more suitable fabric. Polyester/cotton blend may be more durable and may be better for indoor, air-conditioned environments. Elastane offer also added comfort to a more fitted shirt cut. Also, consider your employees and their busy schedules; make sure their shirts are easy to wash. All B&C Shirts are easy care treated.

2. PICK THE RIGHT COLOUR

Here comes the nice part of the process, however, you’ll want to make sure to keep the shirt uniform color as close to the company branding as possible. From classic shades to brighter colours, B&C Shirts offer the right colour range to fit any business whether it is for a corporate sales team, a hospitality staff, a mass retail staff, a beauty business crew…. When picking your logo or embroidery, make sure to ensure high contrast between the logo and garment. Whatever you decided to choose, make sure the embroidery or logo is easily readable, especially from a distance.

3. SELECT THE CORRECT SIZE

Uniform sizes may be different than “normal” clothes sizes.

In order to get a proper uniform fit, you sometimes need to increase the “normal” size by one. B&C Shirts are true to size, you can order the normal clothes size and be sure your team and staff will look professional in any business situation.

4. BE CREATIVE, BE VISIBLE

Do you have an important promotion or event coming up? Screen print a design with information about it on the back of your team’ shirts. Consider changing up your employee’s uniforms based on seasons, such as darker shades for winter and a brighter color and logo for summer. Changing up uniforms can add interest to your business and catch customer’s eyes. Think about your employee’ shirt uniforms as a support of choice for your business visibility.

5. OPT FOR THE RIGHT DECORATION TECHNIQUE

Embroidery may look best for a small logo on the front of the shirt. If you want a larger or all-over design, screen printing will be the best option. One option is to embroider the employee’s name on the front of the shirt and do a large, screen printed logo on the back. An embroidered logo on the front looks nice as well. In any case, B&C Shirts are designed to be decorated and will give you enhanced printability thanks to their high quality fabrics.
