Default Customised company clothing

Evening,

I am looking at getting some clothing made up for my company, however looking all over the internet it seems like there are thousands of companies out there ready to print/embroider logos on tshirts/shorts/coats.

They all look the same! so who have people used?

Do you provide them with the garments to print onto or did you use them to supply the clothing as well?

Any tips/hints would be welcome!!

TIA

There are a couple of ways for you to look at this (IMO)

First is that if you give anyone anything for free, they won't appreciate it and wont care if it gets ripped, dirty or whatever....its not my clothes attitude etc. Therefore go cheap.

The other is to make them proud to wear the shirt and go best.
Then you always get the cocks that want money towards washing of 'your' property, but that's another story

This is only from my own experience as a company owner.

If it helps, I used https://www.freelogoservices.com/ but pretty sure they are all the same give or take

I think that Josh is a one-man-band company? So I don't think he will have quite those issues

I've used a company called Clothes2Order . I had some hoodies and polo shirts done with embroided logos. I was really happy with the service. Good back up service on the phone .No minimum order so you could have 1 or a 1000 made. They supply the clothing good range of brands, colours etc. I sent them my logo and choose the size, they then sent proofs to make sure your happy. The embroidery is excellent and not that expensive. I've had printed logos before, but after lots of wear and washing they can fade.

If you have a provided uniform you are entitled to tax relief on the cleaning of that uniform.

Tax relief isn't the same as wanting extra money for washing.
