In light of this, it's worth noting that custom iron-on patches are one of the easiest, simplest, and cheapest ways to obtain high-quality company uniforms.
On that note, let's dive into some other ways custom iron on patches could benefit your business.
Uniqueness of Iron On Patches
It's in the name; custom iron-on patches.
The fact they're custom allows you to promote your specific business. This is key to making your brand stick in the minds of potential customers.
Instead of using a pre-designed or generic logo. You have the opportunity to design something special. What does your business stand for? Have you achieved any accolades or awards? Is your company renowned for something in particular?
These are the sort of questions you should be asking yourself if you're looking to make the most out of your custom iron patches.
Being a memorable brand is imperative when it comes to securing sales and boosting brand awareness.
You could have the best company in the world, but if no one knows you exist, then you're not going to make any money.
So, you need to dedicate yourself to a few cost-effective and easy ways of promoting yourself- and brandishing your logo around is undoubtedly one of them.
Once you've produced your uniforms, they practically become a free mode of advertising.
These T-shirts aren't too dissimilar to 'walking billboards.' In the sense that they advertise your business to the general public.
Your uniform also provides the perfect conversation starter; people will feel they're able to approach your staff to ask about your business.
Networking is key to expanding your clientele, so be sure to make the most out of these opportunities.
High-Quality Iron On Patches
Custom iron-on patches are famous for their durability. So they're perfect if you're looking to put your logo and contact information on uniforms or promotional items.
However, once it's on there, it's difficult to budge. So try to get it right first time!
Opting for high-quality T-shirt branding will also save you money in the long run because you won't need to keep re-printing your garments. Printed logos can't match this level of durability.
Create a Good First Impression
A good first impression can go a long way. So, it's essential you look professional.
This extends further than just your individual appearance. This is true of how all of your team presents themselves. Consistency is key to branding and establishing yourself as an authority.
Benefits of Employee Uniforms
There are other benefits to all your staff wearing the same logo.
For instance, this is an easy way of fostering team spirit. Having something that visually unites staff, plays a massive role in boosting company pride and employee loyalty.
Plus uniforms save your workers money in the long-run. If you provide them clothes with the iron-on logo already in place, it prevents employees having to shell out on work clothes.
Uniform also hinders a competitive and/or snobby culture where your employees try to outdo each other with the latest gear.
This nips any 'keeping up with the Jones' style behavior before it has a chance to become an issue.
Lastly, when the staff wears a uniform, they become more aware of their actions. This is because a logo makes them identifiable and therefore accountable for everything they say and do.
If you have a business where your workers have to be out and about among the public, accountability is imperative. You don't want one lax employee to jeopardize the reputation of your company.
Security with Patches
Sadly, we're living in an age where increased safety measures are a necessity.
You can use customized iron-on patches as an added security measure. Mandatory uniforms are an easy way to ensure that only employees access the premises.
It goes without saying; an intruder would stick out like a saw thumb amidst a sea of smart looking uniforms. This means you can identify any unauthorized personnel with ease, and act accordingly.
Patches Offer Flexibility
If you're utilizing silk-screen printing, you'll only be able to print on clothing. This is extremely limited in comparison to the iron on patch.
One of the many perks of these patches is the fact they're compatible with numerous material types.
This means you can use the same logo that's on your uniform, on all your promotional items. For example, you may want to sell off merchandise or give away freebies as part of a promotion. For example, bags or towels.
Are Promotional Products Worth It?
In short yes they are, and here's why.
With very minimal effort these help build a loyal following of customers.
This is especially true if your business targets a niche audience. People love to feel like they're part of something bigger than themselves.
So give that to them, branded sweaters, T-shirts, bags, etc. Anything like this would work.
Iron On Patches are Easy to Use
Iron-on patches are incredibly easy to use. It'll take a maximum of 10 minutes of your time, and fortunately, you don't need to be any good at sewing to make these logos look professional.
All you need is the following;
- An iron (set on the hottest setting)
- A damp cloth
It really is as simple as that.
