Workwear logos: what you need to know

Workwear logos: what you need to know

Branded uniforms allow your company to present a smart and consistent corporate image. They enable the public, your customers and clients, and others to quickly and easily identify who works for your company, promote your brand and distinguish you from your competition. Incorporating brand logos on company uniforms helps customers quickly identify front of house staff who can assist them – crucial in the often stressful airport environment.

But in complex aviation environments where different companies often work together, it’s not just public-facing roles that benefit from branded uniforms. Staff who work for the multiple contractors who operate airside will also be easily identifiable and distinguishable through their different, logoed uniforms.

Whether you’re considering branded uniforms for the first time or looking to change workwear supplier, here’s what you need to know when it comes to customised uniforms and corporate workwear

Designing corporate workwear

Contego Aviation Solutions can help design customised company uniforms, assisting with optimum logo placement and positioning. Our designers work with your branding team to bring you the latest technology in branding options to produce practical and smart solutions that encapsulate your brand exactly. For airside operators, we can provide reflective transfers on high-vis garments. Using the simplest format of your company logo can produce a clear and crisp result, and we’ll let you know the artwork file type you need to provide to achieve the best quality finish.

Manufacturing branded workwear

There are two primary methods of incorporating company logos on uniforms – embroidery and heat seal. Company uniforms need to be able to withstand the rigours of a working day, possibly including manual work, and still look smart and fresh after dozens of spins in a washing machine. The system we use to customise uniforms is developed to withstand washing by industrial machines at 80°C.

Distributing branded uniforms

We can brand and dispatch uniforms within seven days from design approval, and our in-house machines are capable of producing up to 3,000 branded items a day. To keep things simple when distributing branded uniforms, we offer a Manpack service. This is where you provide us with a list of employee names and uniform requirements, and we’ll pack and label packages for easy fulfilment and internal distribution.

Future and repeat orders

To avoid staff wearing damaged or worn uniform, corporate workwear needs to be easy to reorder. At Contego Aviation, we keep your artwork on file so we can quickly reproduce uniform. Our Online Management Portal makes reordering easy, allowing you to set parameters around who can reorder workwear and ensuring continuity in the corporate brand.
