As the weather gets colder, employees that work outdoors or travel from site to site need corporate apparel to match the seasons. Keeping on brand, these fall and winter uniforms need to look just as sharp and function just as well as their summer uniforms. Lord Baltimore Uniform Rental can help businesses look and do their best with the appropriate employee uniforms. In particular, these tips for uniform jacket design will help you know exactly what you need regarding employee outerwear.
Uniform Jacket Design: Purpose
The first step in uniform jacket design is determining the jacket’s purpose. Naturally, the purpose is to keep the wearer warm, but how warm, and what else does it need to protect the wearer from?
Depending on the season, you might use jackets that are for the transition between summer and fall, for crisp fall, or for frigid winter. Other elements include wind, rain and snow, and low-light conditions.
Once you know the appropriate season and elements, you can better find the employee jackets you need.
Uniform Jacket Design: Branding
The other side of uniform jacket design is branding. Aside from functionality, the jacket must also function as a passive marketing tool to show customers who employees are and what they stand for.
The jacket should have one or more colors consistent with company colors and summer uniforms. If you need high-visibility jackets for low-light, hazardous work environments, branded colors may take a backseat to standard fluorescent colors.
Custom uniform jacket designs may have varying logo placements, but logos usually sit on the upper right or left front or the center back of a jacket. Lord Baltimore Uniform Rental can walk you through your options and give advice; our aim is for you to get the best product possible.
