When you are looking for embroidered workwear for your staff, the supplier is of paramount importance. This is because they are the ones who determine how professional your work wear will look. Due to the supplier’s importance, you should be careful while choosing one. To be on the safe side, follow the following tips.
Start Your Search On The Internet.
The first place that you should start your search for a good embroidered workwear supplier is on the internet. This is where most businesses advertise themselves. To start, do a random online search and you find different types of suppliers. Many suppliers specialize in one work wear. For example, you will find that one supplier is specializing on jackets, another on polo shirts and so on. Depending on your needs, you should concentrate on the suppliers supplying what you are looking for. For example, if you are interested in embroidered polo shirts, concentrate on these suppliers.
Visit websites of these suppliers that you are interested in and see how their sites are designed. There are many scam suppliers; therefore, you should be cautious in your research. The first tell sign that a supplier is not serious is their website. If a supplier is serious in their work, they should have a professional site that is self hosted and designed professionally. The site should clearly state what the supplier deals with and the prices that they charge for each service rendered.
A professional site should also clearly show the contact information of the supplier; it should be easy to see the email or the phone contacts of the supplier. You should thoroughly scrutinize several websites and settle on two or three suppliers that have what you want. After you have got two or three of your preferred suppliers, you should contact them either via phone or email.
You should explain to them your needs and ask them if they can offer you the service. If they can give you the service, ask them to give you samples of their previous work. You should also ask for a quotation for your work. To ensure that you get the best value at least cost, you should compare quotations from different suppliers and settle on the supplier offering the best service at least cost.
Make a Physical Visit
After you have settled on one supplier, ensure that you give the supplier a physical visit. Visit their office and see how they run their business. Visiting the supplier’s office has two benefits: one, you get to trust the supplier since you can see the size of their business. And two, the supplier gets to see you as a serious customer and takes your work seriously. When you visit the supplier, discuss all the information about the work that you want to give them. If you are giving bulk orders, negotiate for a discount.
Also, to ensure that the supplier will do a good job, you should ask them to work on one of your orders and see how they will do it. For example, in your polo shirt order, if you want 100 polo shirts to be embroidered, you can ask the supplier to embroil one shirt and see how it will go.
When the shirt has been worked on, you should ensure that the design, color, spelling and any other features are right. If you like their work, go ahead and offer them the work. If you don’t like the work, you can make rectifications or look for another supplier.
Word of Caution
Although, you may be interested in the supplier giving you the best service at least cost, you should be wary of suppliers charging extremely low prices. The suppliers may be doing a shoddy job which will result to more money loses on your part.
Also, suppliers charging extra low prices maybe delaying too much in their work which could be inconvenient for your working if you are in a hurry. To be on the safe side, go for a supplier charging averagely for their work.
In summation, choosing the right supplier for your embroidered workwear should be a straight forward affair; however, you should call the suppliers, ask them questions, and gauge them to see if they have what it takes to give you what you want.
