    Besides NEBS,(I already have their catalogs), where are some good places to get work shirts. You know, just a polo with company logo, or maybe a short-sleeve button up shirt. I can't really seem to find something I like. I think I'm being too particular but I'm fussy sometimes about clothes. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Or check locally. If you buy local, you will be able to see the shirts before you purchase them, not just looking at a catalog.

    I use a local embroidery (SP) shop. Very nice older ladies who do a great job.

    Do you know by chance if they are equipped to do embroidery on carhartt coats and such?? I have been looking for a place that can handle the heavier materials.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    We have are carharts done at a local store ,so I know this can be done. I don't suggest button down shirts for mowing
    we have tried this and and the walkbehind handle alway seems to get caught in the front (where the it buttons up)
    and untucks your shirt, we use pocket t's and polos,in the fall and spring long sleeve t-shirts
    Just a thought

    I was thinking I could buy a couple of golf shirts,
    and a pack of permanent magic markers.

    As long as I keep moving,
    and at a distance,

    when its raining, at night,
    no one would know the difference!!
    I'm on a BUDGET!

    Try a local print shop. The have catalogs to look through and then thay can screen print or embroide your logo on the shirt. This is what I had done and it looks great.

    Definitely go local. The prices I was was quoted locally were 25-40% lower than NEBS. Plus I can see the product and work with the staff in person.
