In an era where each individual is unique in their clothing style choices, many corporations have found it necessary to require their employees wear corporate uniforms. Some may be upset by the idea of being told exactly what to wear to work each day, while others may welcome the idea of not having to think about what to wear. Ultimately, there are many important reasons why a company would require you to wear a uniform.
One of the main important reasons why many corporations have turned to uniforms is that it helps the company to market their name. When your employees are wearing custom made uniforms with your embroidered name and logo on them, you are continuously exposing your customers to your logo. If you choose a specific combination of colors, your customers begin to identify those colors with your company. Proper marketing is all about continuous exposure and what better way to continuously expose your company then with your employees clothing.
Another reason why corporate uniforms have become so popular, is that it takes away the need to constantly check and regulate the dress code. A company’s image is determined by its employees. If your employees are dressed inappropriately, it makes your company look bad. Imposing a dress code on your employees can be difficult enforce, seeing how some individuals may take it personally if they are told that their attire is inappropriate. So to simplify things and to make for neat and clean appearances, many companies now choose to have uniforms.
If your business is a service based business like a hotel, airline, or even store, corporate uniforms help your clients to identify the employees. When you have a company where a lot of individuals from the outside come in, if your employees are dressed similar it can leave your customers guessing who works for you. By wearing uniforms, you take the guess work out and your customers will know exactly who they need to turn to for help.
As you can see adding corporate uniforms to your company’s policy can help you in so many ways, whether its marketing, keeping a great image or providing your customers with excellent service.

We recently were asked to create some pink scrubs for The Cuyuna Regional Medical Center annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® team. We were excited to be able to participate in such a great cause.
We’d like to share a few pictures from the event as well as the story of how this all came to be. We will attach the video in a couple months when it is complete.
What do you think of when you hear of a chef or nurse uniform? When you think of chef’s uniform you probably think of him/her dressed in a crisp white uniform with a large hat, when you think of a nurse’s uniform you might think of a neatly pressed white uniform as well. The styles in uniforms in these industries greatly vary, and here’s a bit more about them.
Many chefs do not wear their full uniforms while they are working, but usually the respectable hotels and restaurants insist that their chefs wear all the uniform. These uniforms are made of several pieces. From these, the most popular is of course the chef hat, which is a big white hat with special decorations on top. Also known are the chef’s apron and scarf. Most chefs wear these pieces all the time. But the uniform is also composed of a bandanna, a tie, a pair of pants, gloves and shoes. These parts are not compulsory however.
Large chains of restaurants and hotels usually prefer that their chefs wear designer jackets that have the brand of the hotel written on them. Also, instead of the well-known chef hats they may wear normal caps. This is recommended, because they can keep hair finds from falling inside the food. But the other people in the kitchen are wearing regular caps, so it’s better if the chef wears his special hat so that he can be recognized.
When it comes to the chef uniform’s colur, usually the regular color is white, a color that inspires higene, but this is not a standard, the uniforms may have any color, depending on what the company wants. Some prefer dark colors because stains are less visible in this case.
The apron is usually used to display the company’s logo, and the pants are usually baggy ones, that allow freedom of movement. Finally, the shoes must have low heels and they too must be comfortable.
On the other hand, nurses uniform’s included few pieces at the beginning. the firs ones were simply white dresses with an apron attached. But as time passed, this changed, and now thy are composed of a pair of comfortable pants and a tunic. The colors may vary from situation to situation, but the most popular colors are of course the white ones, and these also help the patients recognize the nurses.
Many different types of uniforms are available for purchasing on the Internet, and clients may also order customized ones, that fit their preferences.
