Is Custom Embroidery Right for You?

If you are a business that supplies their employee’s uniforms, you may have already considered custom embroidery. Custom embroidery can easily be added to your workwear order, allowing you to put your company logo and/or employee names on each uniform. You might be asking yourself if custom embroidery is, first of all, a worthwhile expense, and secondly, how much does it actually cost? Keep reading to find the answers, and determine if custom embroidery is actually right for you.

  • Cost. First, let’s look at how much it costs to order custom embroidery on your company workwear. If you’re looking to add your company logo, there is a fee to create a digitized file of your company logo. The process is simple, and the cost is $79. After you have an approved logo, it is kept on file so that you can reuse it any time you want to order custom embroidered workwear. A runoff charge is charged every time the logo is embroidered, and the cost of that varies depending on how many garments you are ordering, ranging from $5.25-$6.95.
  • Process. The process of ordering custom embroidery is fairly simple. You can call a customer service representative at Automotive Workwear to walk you through the process, but you’ll need to email your company logo as a PDF to customlogo@automotiveworkwear.com. Once the file is received, it can be turned into a special digitized file that the sewing machine can read. This process takes about a week, and you will receive an embroidered sample to approve the finished logo. Once you have approved the embroidered logo, the file is kept for your use whenever you order. You can start choosing the garments you want to order, and have them custom embroidered with your company logo.
  • Is it worth it? While you will have to reach your own conclusions, it is safe to say that custom embroidery absolutely makes a difference. Uniforms embroidered with the company logo provide uniformity among employees, company branding, and better customer service. Most people are more comfortable trusting a worker in a uniform that is branded with the company logo, and the employee’s name. Custom embroidered work shirts and jackets is another way to get your company logo noticed. The more recognition of your company, the more business you will draw in. Also, there’s no need to worry about employees forgetting their name tags when the name is embroidered directly on their uniform.
