A well designed uniform helps to establish your company identity and boost your overall advertising strategy. A shirt that features your brand logo is one of the most cost effective measures to heighten your brand awareness as your employees take on the role as your brand ambassador everywhere they go.
2) Professional Image
First impressions count. It form within seconds, but they prove to be very impactful and leaves a long lasting deep impression. When you are appropriately dressed, it will helps to make you look professional and confident.
When your employees are in their uniform, they look consistent. Consistency became familiarity, familiarity becomes trust and from trust come acceptance and allegiance. Building trust and relationship between you and your customers.
3) Easy To Identify
In a retail business, a uniform is one of the first things your customers notice when interacting with you, it reinforces trust and confidence in the company and its brand.
Have you ever been mistaken for a staff member of a company while shopping or running errands?
Using a large consumer electronics event that is held yearly in Singapore as an example, having a uniform makes it easier for consumers to identify your employees for assistance and to ask questions. If they are unable to get assistance, they may get distracted and make their purchase elsewhere.
We recommend uniforms because they help you identify or differentiate staff from customers within a crowd. While it is important to have an appealing design, we also believe in balancing design and functionality.
In some cases where companies prefer a simpler design or a single colour brand logo printing. We would suggest keeping to one shirt colour or simply opt for a custom-made shirt of your choice. At TJG Print, our custom-made shirts’ minimum required quantity starts from 30 pieces.
4) Promote Team Bonding And Equality
In a workplace, approaching someone of higher authority may be intimidating for some. Often than not, some employees may be more well to do to be able to catch up on the latest fashion trend while some employees may not.
However, when everyone is wearing the same company t-shirt regardless of their title or position, it gives a sense of belonging. When everyone feels that they are working towards a common goal, it promotes team bonding and equality. Which in turn, creates a more effective and productive workplace.
You can also consider involving your employees in the process of designing fun uniforms through a contest!
At TJG Print, we put ourselves in your shoes to understand your requirements so that we can make the best recommendation.
5) Work-wear Protection And Utility
In some industries, uniforms are part of personal protection equipment, some are specially produced to protect employees from workplace hazard. For example, from abrasion, scratches and cuts. High visibility uniforms come in bright fluorescent colours or reflective colours. For instance, road construction workers and those who had to work overnight wear them to ensure that they can be seen easily and stand out from the dark.
Uniforms are also made to be utilize and functional to each industry. For example, customising pen pockets or pockets on corporate uniform for handy purposes. In Singapore weather, a long sleeve t-shirt prevents you from getting a sunburn and keeps you cool. A comfortable work wear attire is the key to increasing productivity. TJG Print has a wide range of materials and sleeve length to offer for different needs.

There are various apparels you may consider for a uniform or corporate wear.
Silkscreen Printing or Embroidery?
With embroidery, the logo is reproduced by stitching threads into the fabric. It creates a texture that causes a pop-up effect. Hence, it creates a more professional and smart appearance for your branding. For ease of understanding, we shall simplify the process. Firstly, the logo is being created through a program, after which the file is uploaded to the embroidery machine where it instructs the machine on what to stitch.
Unlike home embroidery machines for craft works, industrial embroidery machines have more sewing heads and needles per head. This means that more items can be embroidered simultaneously in more colours.
As embroidery is very durable and lasting, it still remains as a popular choice of printing and can be more cost effective in the long term. Generally, embroidery are cheaper compared to silkscreen printing in smaller quantities.
However, on the design aspect, embroidery is not so suitable for very small, very large, complex or detailed designs. In large quantities, it is also slightly more expensive than silkscreen printing too.
Whereas, silkscreen printing are reproduced by transferring ink through mesh screens directly (we shared a blog post on what silk screen printing is, click here to read). Silkscreen printing are budget-friendly when printed in large quantity and in 1-2 colours. Silkscreen printing have very strong durability, colours are vibrant and cheerful which brings out an identity to your company. It is also capable of printing small and fine details.
Ultimately, it depends on preference and usuage of the company shirt. Both print methods serve their purpose very well.
Which Apparel To Go For?
