Company Work Wear

Looking for a company that can make custom work wear but being a smaller company a lot of the minimum orders don't work for us. When you employ 2 people a minimum order of 5 winter jackets doesn't make sense. Hoping for embroidery, contemplating taking my dickies jacket to just get it embroidered.

I use local guys,
they either order for me from a catalog mail order style, or in the past, have just said go buy some clothes and we will embroider.

So I prefer to buy carharrt gear, especially long sleeve Ts and their gortex stuff.

I reimburse guys for two sets of carharrt double knees and 50% cost for boots, after 1 year.

I usually buy them ball caps for free.

I allow shorts as long as they are cargo or carharrt (no nut huggers)

and I personally wear utlikilts almost as often as I do carharrts.

I don't really wear shorts, often.

Found some great guys at Landscape Ontario. I need to go and check what their name was because I don't remember off the top of my head. One of them is from Guelph and the other is from Milton. They do not have a minimum order requirement. I will get back to you asap.

get a few extras then…you can either hand them out to promos like vendors, friends, or really good customers, or have a few hang in the closet in case of a new employee or one gets lost.

I think you're maybe making too much of a big deal over the minimums…

Oh no! I only want 22 business cards and they are making me get 100!

BTW are the places you are looking uniform shops that will do team uniforms for baseball, hockey, letterman jackets?

They typically don't have 'minimums' because they sell to individuals.

The joy of living in the country, there isn't many choices. Business cards are a little different then having spare 3 $110 plus dollar jackets as a spare.

$110? crazy. I get my stuff about $10 cheaper at Protecshan, they were also at Landscape Ontario but they only do reflective clothing. Link..: http://protecshan.com . Great place, free 1 spot embroidery, all you need is to send them a logo and they put it on wherever you want for $0.
