Hi Guys. I don't know about you, but we have been through the screen printing/embroidery saga w our uniforms. We have paid a ton of money to get shirts screenprinted and also have had nice polo shirts embroidered. This all added up to a ton of money. Also, w the tee-shirts, they would get ripped, grease + oil stained, faded, peeled, stinky etc. Wtih the polo shirts, the guys complained that they were hot and the embroidered names outlasted the shirts. So, we came up w another avenue to explore. You guys in factories, chain companies, mechanics, etc are familiar w Aramark or Cintas (uniform rental companies). We just had a guy from Cintas come to us and we were amazed at the prices. For $7.50 per employee per week, they are outfitted w 11 changes in a 2 week period. This includes company name and logo, and employee name. They come to us and measure everyone, that way there are no mistakes. The shirts and pants are really soft, I thought they would be itchy and stiff. You can get short or long sleeved. Now, it could have been slightly cheaper, but I chose a more high end shirt bc of the looks. I think there is also a very small delivery charge every wk ($3 or so.) You would not believe, once you sit down and do the math, how economical this was for us, esp when the employees will pay $5.00 of it. I have always picked it all up before, bc they had to maintain them. Now, everyone has the identical same pants and so on. I am electing to BUY coats, hats, shorts for everyone from Cintas. Financially it made more sense to purchase those than to rent them. I think it cost around $2/wk per empl for the coats, so in about 17 wks it would have been paid for and there is not much wear and tear on coats. I just thought maybe some of you have also struggled w the uniform issue also. I have had guys show up w no company shirt, brightly colored coats, inappropriate shorts and wild hats, etc. I think this will really unify the look and I was able to pretty much stay w our color scheme. The guys were really receptive to the idea also - bc they don't have to wash their uniforms anymore - (not that they did before.) Just a thought.
