Uniforms are a great way to reinforce your brand. By choosing items in colours that complement your logo, then adding your logo in a clearly visible position, your brand identity is strengthened, and the uniforms support your brand image.  In addition, your employees become a “walking advert” for your business, and it can help them feel more connected to the organisation. 

However, it can be difficult to know where to start when choosing a uniform which will represent your business but also make employees feel comfortable and proud to wear it. Simply Uniforms can help you through the process.

What you need to consider when choosing uniforms

First, you need to decide what type of garments your business requires. Simply Uniforms can provide everything including corporate suits, shirts & blouses for office wear, hi-vis workwear for sites, hospitality uniforms for restaurants, cafés and kitchens, scrubs and blouses for healthcare workers and many other options. Complete the range with jackets, caps, bags and other accessories. We are a one-stop shop for all your branded clothing and promotional products.

Next, think about the type of image you want to portray. Do you want a formal look? If so, you might include corporate suiting in your uniform range. A more casual look? Maybe polo shirts and chinos are the way to go.

When choosing the type of garments, your budget is also a factor. Suiting and business shirts are more expensive than polo shirts. If items are for an event and may only be worn for a short period, then t-shirts or a budget shirt will be most cost-effective. So think about these questions and let us know your requirements, and we can make recommendations for you.

In summary:

  • What type of garments does your organisation need?
  • What sort of image do you want for your uniforms?
  • What is your budget?

The colour of your uniforms is often the first thing people will notice. The garment colour can either be a statement in itself, such as hot pink or lime green, or it can be a perfect background to make your logo stand out. A popular choice is to pick a dark colour as the main garment colour, with contrasting trim in a colour that matches your logo. If you want matching pants, skirts or jackets, then consider which colour will work well with the tops.

Do you need an exact match to a specific colour? This can be achieved by dye sublimation, whereby white fabric is dyed using ink to an exact colour match. See our dye sublimation page for more options.

In summary:

  • Do you want the uniforms to be in your brand colours, or do you want them to be a plain background for your logo?
  • Do you want any contrasting trim on the uniforms to match your brand colour?
  • Do you need to match a precise colour code?

Not all uniforms are created equal! It is important to think about whether your uniform needs to fulfil any specific needs, especially in regard to the safety of your workers. We supply a huge range of items suitable for many purposes.

Some properties of the uniforms you may want to consider are:

  • High visibility (day only or day & night)
  • UV protection
  • Cooling properties
  • Moisture wicking
  • Easy care or non-iron fabric
  • Fabric stretch and comfort
  • Warmth or waterproofing
  • Breathability

Let us know which properties or features you require, and we will only suggest items that meet these requirements.
