Employees who are required to follow a dress code are more professional looking than those who are allowed the freedom to dress however they wish. Even if employees are attempting to look professional when wearing their own clothes to work the outfits often appear sloppy.
Uniforms for your small business will allow your employees to look professional, be identifiable to customers, and generate advertising revenue. The uniform does not require pants, a suit coat, and tie and the look can be accomplished with a simple, affordable tee shirt or polo shirt with the company’s logo.
A cotton tee shirt or polo shirt with a company logo lets customers identify who works where. When a customer enters the business the staff will seem more knowledgeable and more put together. This feeling of reassurance is the first thing that will strike customers as they enter the business and, with quality follow up service, it will also be their lasting impression.
Small businesses have several options when it comes to implementing uniforms. The most popular is the cotton t-shirt. This is the most cost-effective choice. Printed t-shirts are comfortable, come in many colors, and are durable – all qualities to look for in a uniform tee shirt.
Another fashionable option, a little dressier option, is the polo shirt. This style of shirt has the same benefits as the tee shirt. It is made of cotton, it is durable, comes in a wide range of colors, and is comfortable. Polo shirts are often worn by front office and sales floor staff while tee shirts are worn by other workers whose jobs involve manual labor.
It is essential for a small business to work with a reputable promotional clothing distributer when purchasing tee shirts or polo shirts. A professional distributer will ensure the quality of the cloth, be up to date on the current styles and colors, and have advice on logo placement. He will also be able to make the most cost effective deals. Remember, a great deal is not so great if the shirt falls apart the first time you wash it!(c) Image by Banjo Ari, www.xc.hu/
