Why You Should Give Employees Custom Apparel

Giving your employees custom apparel is one of the best business decisions you can make. Need some convincing?

Here’s why you should give your employees custom apparel:

It’s a mobile billboard for your business

Put your employees in generic uniforms, and nobody will know where they work. However, when you custom embroider your logo on a polo shirt or T-shirt, your employees will spark interest in your business just by walking around—on their way to and from work, running post-work errands, etc. According to a recent survey, 60% of employees wear branded shirts on a regular basis.

It helps your customers

Ever visited a busy restaurant or shop and had trouble figuring out who actually works there? Avoid confusion and make it easier for your customers to get the assistance they need by giving your employees custom apparel to wear on the job.

It inspires pride and community

Wearing custom apparel can actually enhance employee morale and professionalism. Employees will be more likely to feel proud of their workplace and will feel like they’re part of a cohesive group. When everyone has custom apparel, employees will feel like they’re working together toward common goals.

If you’ve decided you want to give your employees custom apparel to enhance brand recognition, customer experience, and employee morale, Barb’s Custom Embroidery is a great place to find what you need. Barb can embroider or screen print T-shirts, polos, sweatshirts and more. Call Barb’s Custom Embroidery at 541-601-0594 to get a quote for custom apparel for your employees!

How to Dress Up a T-Shirt

Custom Embroidery in OR

If you think T-shirts are strictly casual attire, think again. With the right outfit, a custom-embroidered T-shirt can look stylish and put-together as well as comfortable.

Here’s how to dress up a T-shirt:

Relaxed weekend look

For a relaxed yet trendy weekend look, tuck a T-shirt into your favorite skinny jeans. Pull on some boots over the jeans and finish the look with a tunic-length cardigan. Got a fancy brunch date? Swap the boots for a pair of heels to go with your denim.

Cute and put-together

T-shirts can pair with more than just jeans, of course. A custom-embroidered T-shirt looks fresh and unexpected atop a tailored pencil skirt and ankle boots. A T-shirt is also a great way to tone down and contrast with a dramatic skirt that has fringe, extra volume or a bold pattern. For a slimming effect, belt your waist.

Layered and trendy

Take inspiration from Beyoncé and pair your T-shirt with an embellished or fringed vest. For a more formal look, put an evening jacket over your tee. High shine and sequins will instantly take your top from everyday to dressed-up.


Instantly dress up a T-shirt by pairing it with fun accessories. Tie a patterned scarf around your neck, pick out some dramatic earrings or put on a statement necklace.

Of course, the best type of T-shirt to dress up is one that’s custom-embroidered! Stand out from the crowd in a one-of-a-kind T-shirt from Barb’s Custom Embroidery. Call us at 541-601-0594 to get a quote today!
