Post How to Choose a Supplier   Sat Aug 13, 2011 8:45 am

When you're looking to have your clothing or workwear embroidered with a corporate logo, there are a few vital things to consider. With the many companies out there that offer an embroidery service, it's best to do a little home work before placing your order.

A simple internet search is the best way to find local suppliers and discover what services they offer. Asking people or businesses who use embroidered workwear to recommend a supplier can be useful. The Yellow Pages is also another valuable resource, but is becoming less popular with advertisers in recent years as more people search online.

When choosing an embroidery supplier to produce you're clothing and workwear requirements, you are placing your trust (and money) in their abilities to deliver what you need.

Before approaching a supplier by either telephone, email or in person, it is worthwhile to have a copy of your company logo available. Expert embroiderers can only give an accurate quotation when they have seen the logo that needs to be produced.

When asking for a quotation, make sure to get all the relevant costs. These will include embroidery set up, garment price complete with logo, delivery and VAT. Ask for the quotation to be emailed to you so you have it for future reference.

Some companies have excellent offers available for buying in bulk. Make sure these companies will also take on a small order in the future if you employ a new staff member for example.

A word of warning: Beware of low-priced deals! These can often involve poor quality clothing, embroidery, and long delays.

Always ask to see a proof before your supplier starts the embroidery process. This will enable you to check spellings, colours and general layout and make any necessary changes. It is now common practice to email digital proofs to customers. This saves time, especially on those rush jobs! If your company has specific brand guidelines set out, it may also be advisable to asks for an embroidered sample of your logo to be sent in the post for you to check prior to embroidering your chosen workwear.

If this is the first time you have ordered embroidered workwear, it could be wise to order samples of your chosen garments. This will ensure you order the correct size for each member of staff, and assure you of the quality of the garment. Ask your supplier to send a sizing pack. Most will charge for this service, but if you return them and use them on your order they will be refunded to your account.
