Bella + Canvas Kids

The debate rages on as to whether it is worth it to spend a lot of money on kids clothes or not. That’s why we offer a nice range of tees. Rabbit Skins and Port & Company for a mid price tee and Bella + Canvas for those of you who want to step it up a notch.

While the price points (in all honesty) are not that vastly different it is better to think in terms of the overall look you are going for. If your brand needs bright punchy colors in toddler sizes Rabbit Skins are the way to go. Youth team sports? Port & Company has got all the team colors you would ever need. If your brand is more about a “feel” or “vibe” then Bella + Canvas will fit that niche nicely. Trendy gear at a decent price point. And you can match the kids line with their adult line to give everyone an on point cohesive look.

Putting it all Together

Business uniforming is hard. Everyone has their own opinions and likes and the person or department in charge of uniforming always ends up feeling like they are in a no win situation.

It is true that for all your employees one brand, style, or color rarely works well for everybody. But that’s okay. This guide gives you some ideas how you can work your uniform around a color palette, how to achieve a certain “look” that represents your brand, and how accessories such as hats or bags (duffle bags, backpacks, or totes) can give your group a uniform look at events, meetings, and corporate outings.

The above guide only scratches the surface on what is out there for you. Here is our quick check list for getting your business uniforming on.

Research first! Love it or hate it social media like Instagram and Twitter can be your best friends during your research phase. Check out what other companies in your field are doing. Check out other companies not related to your field at all and see if there is some takeaway you can apply to your company. It costs nothing to look but may save you time and money down the line as your uniform vision takes shape.

Baby steps! Biggest thing to remember as you uniform your gang is baby steps. Outfitting a group can get pricey. Some companies have budgets that will allow them to outfit all at once. Most don’t however, so start small. Maybe the best way for your company is by department, by upcoming events, or by starting with your sales team that is face to face with your customers. There is no wrong place to start.

Go for it! When it all becomes to overwhelming, I always tell our customers to start with something easy, like hats. One size fits all, they are not a big investment and they are the number one best use of your advertising money. Everyone will see them and then everyone will want one.

We always have catalogs in the shop.  If your research stalls, stop in and we can help get you on your way again. Oh and the catalogs are FREE!

Sparkles and Velvet

Pennant is helping you shine with these new sparkle and velvet trimmed hoodies. The hoodies are soft lightweight heather jersey with sewn on sparkles and velvet stripes on the raglan sleeves.

The sparkles are offered in white and black while the velvet comes in a variety of standard team colors.

For the price point these hoodies take the "sweatshirt" look up a notch and would work well for fund raising, spirit wear, health/fitness and corporate events with a sporty vintage theme.

Gildan Hammer

Hanes has long been know for its heavy weight 6 oz Beefy-T. If you liked 100% cotton at the heaviest weight, you were a fan of this for life. Gildan is now introducing their version of the Beefy-T called the Hammer.

I am going to assume you at least glanced at the text in the photo above so I won’t repeat. Bottom line is the tee shirt is soft, comes in a long sleeve and with a pocket, and has 30 colors to choose from.

Current trends are toward a lighter weight tee but if you are a die hard fan of the heavy weight tee you should  stop by and check out The Hammer. Gildan was kind enough to send us a sample. By the way did I mention it was SOFT?
