When it comes to custom-branded apparel to promote your business, custom t-shirts, button-up, or polo shirts often come to mind. The latter two are common across a variety of industries and are popular for a good reason – they allow employers to provide their staff with a cohesive uniform look that is smart, casual and easy to wear.
This ease of wear means that these garments promote your organization outside the office as well – when your employees grab a coffee, head out for lunch, or go on a walk, they’ll often have no need to change out of their “uniform”, which means there are more opportunities to raise the profile of your organization.
But in winter, these items of clothing go into hiding under layers and heavy winter coats.
And in Canada, winter can be long. Really long.
But that doesn’t mean you need to wait for summer to continue the display of company pride – there are some great apparel options you can customize to promote your logo year-round.
Here is a short list of some of the best winter apparel options you can customize for your employees.
CUSTOM SWEATSHIRTS AND HOODIES
At Rogue Star, we offer a variety of sweatshirts and hoodies to fit every member of your team. And during the cold winter days (like we’ve been experiencing for the last week), they’ll sure to be a go-to item to keep warm and cozy.
Whether you’re looking for a smart premium cotton zip-up jacket, or a more casual pull-over hoodie, we can screen print or embroider your company logo on these cold-weather classics. And while they may be the perfect mid-layer for winter, they’re also the perfect outer layer for cool spring and fall days.
CUSTOM WINTER JACKETS
If you want to go one step further and get your logo visible on the outermost layer, a custom winter jacket is the way to go – especially if your employees are working outside in the elements.
A wind and water-resistant three layer fleece jacket such as the NORTH END Men’s Glacier Insulated Three-Layer Fleece Bonded Soft Shell Jacket with Detachable Hood is a clean and stylish weatherproof option that keeps the cold wind at bay with features such as an internal storm placket, fleece-lined collar and zip-off hood.
And for those working outside, the Men’s Vortex HD 3-in-1 Reflective System Parka features a zip-out fleece liner, single-hand adjustments, and high visibility reflective taping on the shell and liner to help keep your crew members safe on the job, no matter the time of day.
CUSTOM TOQUES & BEANIES
At some point, staying warm overrules the fear of hat-hair. Beanies and Toques provide a great canvas for your organization’s logo, and there will likely be situations when having an extra warm hat on hand will be appreciated.
We can customize a variety of toques and beanies, but one of the most popular items is this Adult Cuffed Knit Beanie – it’s made from a 100% hypoallergenic acrylic knit, making it soft and comfortable. And the tight knit makes it easy to embroider with a variety of designs!
CUSTOM GLOVES AND MITTENS
Don’t forget about the extremities! Whether it’s a set of pocketable touch-screen enabled gloves, or heavy-duty Deerskin Winter Mitts with Thinsulate, we can add your logo or business name to a variety of handwear designed to match your employee’s needs.
It doesn’t matter whether your employees work indoors or are out facing the elements on the jobsite and in the field – customized winter gear is sure to be appreciated when the temperature drops.
