THE COST OF BUYING CHEAP
Don’t let promises of “lower prices” rule your uniform program decisions. Instead of uniform price, think uniform value. Now you have more innovative fabrics, specialized fits and enhanced functionality than ever that can help you optimize employee safety, productivity and brand reputation. So watch out for prices that seem too good to be true—because they probably are. They can hide surprise fees, price increases and expensive damage charges in the fine print. Instead, focus on the uniform factors that will help you earn a better value for your business.
All uniforms aren’t created equal.
Specialized Uniforms Maximize Productivity
Innovative uniform functionality helps your employees do their job better. Tailored fits, for example, offer enhanced ergonomics, while moisture-wicking and breathable fabrics preserve comfort even in highly active roles — helping improve productivity.
The Right Apparel Bolsters Worker Safety
New fabrics and options, such as high-visibility and flame-resistant materials, protect your workers from job site hazards—whether they’re cooking up gourmet meals in the kitchen or swapping in new brake pads on a customer’s SUV. As safety improves, you’ll reduce liability for your business.
Don’t be fooled by cheaper uniform options. You’ll pay in the long run.
Quality Materials Reduce Replacement Costs
When you buy cheap, you can’t always count on manufacturing integrity, and you may end up with poor quality fabrics, irregular fit and slapdash construction. When uniforms can’t hold up to day-to-day wear and tear, you pay more in the long run with more frequent replacements and unexpected damage and repair costs some suppliers charge.
Quality uniforms are made to stand up to the rigors of daily work, and will retain their shape and colors—even after heavy use and laundering.
