Custom Embroidery Services: What We Do, and Why You Want It

Automotive Workwear is the nation’s largest distributor of Red Kap work apparel, and carries a number of other leading brands in their industries. We sell Bulwark flame resistant workwear, as well as outfitting kitchens with Chef Designs workwear. If you have a workwear need, we can supply it. What you might not realize, however, is that you can choose the garment that will help you get your job done, and we can add custom embroidery to it. Choose one of our best selling technician jackets, or a long sleeve work shirt, and add your company logo and/or employee name to the garment. We even have flame resistant thread, allowing us to custom embroider flame resistant workwear.

What We Do

If you are interested in custom embroidery for your order, the process is fairly simple. Our embroidery machines read a special format, so the first step is emailing your company logo as a jpeg. Once we receive it, we will convert it into a digitized file that our embroidery machines can read, and we will run off a sample. The sample will be sent to you for approval, and once it is approved, the file will be saved for future use. That means that whenever you order from us, you can count on quality embroidery that is consistent. We charge a one-time digitizing fee of $79, but after your logo is approved and in the system, you can use it for the run off charge. Depending on what you are ordering, the cost of added embroidery changes. For example, an order of 30 embroideries will cost $6.95 per garment, but an order of over 500 embroideries will cost $5.25 per garment. Our embroidery specialists have years of experience, and can turn your company logo into custom embroidery on your jackets, work shirts, coveralls, and more. Check out our website for more information on our custom embroidery services and what we do.

Why You Want It

Custom embroidery is a good idea for many reasons. It offers branding of your company, better customer service, and a more uniform appearance among employees. Whether you are looking to get your company name out there, or reinforce using your company to get the job done, custom embroidered logos on your work wear can help you. Embroidering company logos and/or employee names can help your company provide better customer service. Customers feel safer with the recognition of your company logo, and knowing the employee’s name. Not to mention, it helps to hold your employees accountable for the way they treat customers. Lastly, custom embroidery can give your employees a uniform appearance. While various workers may wear different workwear garments, having the same company logo can give them a professional, united look.

We offer leading workwear brands, quality at an affordable price, and you can add custom embroidery. The process is simple, and it can do a lot for your business. Check out our website for more information, or call a customer service representative today.

Choosing Flame Resistant Workwear that is Right for You

Choosing Flame Resistant Workwear that is Right for You

Before ordering any flame resistant garments, you should always check with your employer or safety manager to ensure that you know the Hazard Rating Category (HRC) Level and ARC ratings needed for your particular job. Every job will have different levels of protection needed, so it’s important to verify what level you need. Ask your employer or safety manager about the required HRC level, or ARC rating. If they don’t know, they will need to have the job evaluated to determine the proper level of protection you need in flame resistant workwear. Flame and thermal protective fabrics should provide the expected degree of protection for the life of the garment, keeping you safer on the job.

Choosing the right flame resistant workwear for your job consists of finding apparel that meets the safety requirements of your job, as well as being acceptable in appearance to both the employer and wearer. Protective garments should be functional and practical for everyday wear on the job, including being comfortable and durable. Our Bulwark flame resistant garments come in a wide variety of styles and levels of protection, making it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Not only should your FR apparel be comfortable and durable, holding up to the proper arc rating, but you should take into account any other hazards that will be present on the job. Other potential hazards include chemical or molten substance exposure. The flame resistant workwear you choose should also be able to withstand heavy duty laundering. Many of our Bulwark garments are built to stand up to industrial washings, making them popular choices for large companies. Properly laundering and caring for these garments should remove soils, and flammable contaminants, without changing the appearance of the garment or causing excessive shrinkage.

There are a number of different factors to take into account when choosing the right flame resistant workwear for you. You will want to have a little bit of knowledge about FR fabrics, and what you want your clothing made from. We carry Bulwark FR apparel, so there is a variety of fabrics available. We offer treated and inherent FR fabrics. Treated cotton is a popular choice, since it can’t be beat for comfort and softness. Nomex is a popular choice for inherently FR fabric, offering excellent wickability. The style of your workwear is another factor to consider. While coveralls are a great choice for the oil and gas industry, you might be looking for something a little more “everyday” style. We offer FR jeans, FR shirts, and even FR hoodies to help you find the most comfortable and durable flame resistant workwear for your job.
Check out our website to view our excellent Bulwark products, or call a customer service representative to find out more about which garments can meet your need. Be prepared to discuss the nature of your hazard, and the level of protection that you require. Your FR garments should be comfortable, durable, of wearable style, and above all, provide protection against arc flashes, and other on-the-job hazards.
