Choosing a Corporate Wear Partner, Our Top 3 Tips

Corporate wear clothing is a must for many corporate companies. A smart appearance from wearing good, quality clothing is a no-brainer, but choosing your supplier for your clothing can be. The overall concept of a corporate supplier isn’t rocket science; they buy corporate clothing from several well established wholesalers and manufacturers and sell it at a profit, usually adding embroidery, printing or labels along the way. Most often the end user wouldn’t be able to tell the difference of whether they are purchasing their uniform from a family team working from their garage or a large scale company with thousands of resources.

Of course I’m not knocking any family businesses that started from a garage because I work for one, speaking of which if you would like to learn about our roots of manufacturing waxed jackets simply click here. Smaller, local companies such as ourselves can provide you with as excellent service as larger companies; whether it’s calling in to see you and help with uniform choices or being a reliable voice on the end of the phone to guide you every step of the way. Aside from these, I wanted to provide you with a few other ideas to keep in mind when choosing your uniform supplier.

1. Choose a company who will help you to organise the chaos.

If you have ordered corporate wear in the past, you will likely be aware of the hundreds of options available for each garment type you require. If the supplier you are looking at just lists everything on their website, throws you a pack of brochures and leaves you to it isn’t doing their job correctly. They need to be asking about the job roles your staff are performing and recommending the perfect garments to suit them with reasons as to why.

2. Choose a company which holds a good range of stock.

All companies run out of stock of their items sometimes, but a supplier who never seems to have the garments you need ready to dispatch should ring alarm bells. Find out how often your supplier has deliveries of your items and whether they’re likely to be discontinued in the future to prevent any future difficulties when it comes to re-ordering.

3. Choose a company which will supply you with samples prior to ordering.

Requesting samples of clothing sounds confusing but is actually really simple. Choose the garments you like the look of which suit your needs and you will be sent a sample of each for you to try on for free. This service prevents issues with the uniform once it has been rolled out to your staff and reduces risk when buying for multiple departments. Be wary of suppliers who does not offer this service, time and time again we see issues where the uniform wasn’t suitable for our customers and they have asked us to help them.

When you do make the decision on your choice of corporate wear supplier, take these points in to consideration and make sure you are getting the best possible service for your money. A less than outstanding service and stock of garments will just cause problems in the long run and more frustration when you should not have encountered them in the first place.

The new home of corporate clothing on the web – Keltic Clothing have a new website!

2011 isn’t a leap year, but for Keltic, one of the UK’s largest staff uniform suppliers, 2011 marks a giant leap forward.

When we first started ten years ago, we were one of the first few companies in our industry to promote our business with a website. Many of our competitors didn’t have websites or email addresses – doesn’t that sound strange now!

I spent a long time with a university friend designing what we thought was the best website out there, not only showing our cutting edge clothing ranges but crucially giving useful tips on things like ‘how to choose the right uniform for the type of job role your staff are doing’.

Our brand new website aims to take this idea and bat it out of the park. Not only do we now have the largest range in the UK, we aim to be a one-stop-resource for corporate clothing information.

We’ll be posting regularly to this blog, facebook and twitter pages, as well as updating our news section with press articles and emailing our newsletter to subscribers, who get a chance to win a suit when they sign up.

We see our website as a two-way street and really encourage you to comment on our blog, our facebook page and on twitter. In the near future we’ll be recruiting field testers, who’ll have the opportunity to test our exciting new garments in exchange for providing us with their feedback on our blog and facebook pages – ‘like‘ our facebook page now to be notified of availability.

We hope you enjoy our new website featuring our great range of staff uniforms, it certainly is extremely exciting for all of us here at Keltic, and we can’t wait to hear from you.
