We have been embroidering clothing for over 10 years now so there’s not a lot we don’t know about making an embroidered logo look good on a garment. Operating in-house we use the very latest embroidery machine technology in the form of state of the art Barudan embroidery machines.

The quality and final outcome of an embroidered garment is dictated by many factors started by setting up the logo or text. This is why at JKL we ensure each and every embroidered logo is set up correctly before we even consider producing a swatch sample of the logo for approval. This process is often referred to as punching the design or logo and involves looking at the logo design, the type and weight of fabric it is going onto, and the optimum size of the logo to ensure that what is produced is the best possible outcome in terms of how the logo looks and how closely it matches the artwork and colours our customers have provided.

An important factor in producing the best possible embroidery is the artwork, the better the artwork, the better the embroidery will come out. High-resolution artwork will make a difference to the finished product.

After an order is confirmed, we produce a swatch sample for our customers to approve before we embroider the logo onto their chosen garments. At this stage the customer has the option to make any changes they require to get exactly the end result they are looking for. This may incur an edit charge.

Once approved it then comes down to the quality of the embroidery machines used and the skill of the machine operative to make sure the final embroidered garment looks as good as possible.

JKL Facts - Workwear Buyers Guide

20 July 2016 11:35

Aims of the guide

The aim of our guide to buying workwear is to help our customers select the right item of workwear clothing specifically for them. We know that each individual customer will have their own unique requirement which is why we have put together a comprehensive range of workwear products from which to choose.

We also know that a vast choice can sometimes lead to confusion and difficulty in selecting the right workwear. Hopefully the guide below can help you make the right choice.

Workwear Requirements 

Before you begin the process of choosing specific workwear clothing it may be helpful to first of all consider why you require work clothing and what it will be used for?

Try to prioritise your requirements. Do you need a work uniform, does the clothing need to provide protection, does it need to meet PPE Workwear standards, is fit and comfort your priority or is it a combination of all these.

Once you have decided your individual requirements you can then begin your selection process.

How to choose

Once you know the clothing item you require you can start to narrow your choice by selecting the appropriate category on our site. For example we have categories and sub categories, such as underwear and thermal workwear or workwear jackets, within our workwear department so you can navigate directly to the product page you require. 

You may be familiar with a specific workwear brand. You can select products from a specific brand on our website and view them all in one place. 

Fabric, style or a specific standard may be high on your list of priorities. We have therefore tried to provide an accurate description of all our products highlighting the main benefits and unique points.

Colour may be one of your requirements to match in with company colour schemes. We have a colour filter option down the left hand side of sub category pages to help you identify only those products available in a particular colour.

Price and budget always need to be a consideration when it comes to any purchase and workwear is no exception. To help you filter to the clothing items that fit within your budget, we have a price sorting filter from high to low or low to high on all of our pages from category level down.

Once you have selected the most appropriate product you need to know if it is in stock and what the availability is. Our website is updated daily to ensure current stock levels can be viewed online.

If all this is still not enough to help you with your choice we have trained staff, ready to take your call or respond to your email. Contact one of our customer account managers who will be able to help and advise on the choice of workwear you require.

Branding or Personailsation

We offer embroidery, screen or transfer printing and tax tabs to create personalised workwear. There are tax advantages to branding your garments along as well as providing your clothing with a unique, personalised look.

Applying a company logo to your workwear garment may be one of your requirements. We have tried to make this as simple as possible and offer a number of options. 

1. You can get your quote and proceed with your order online through our website. Details of how to do this can be found on our “How to order” page. Further instructions are provided once you have entered your selected products into the basket.
2. You can send us the information through one of our contact forms and we will provide a fully itemised quote for you.
3. Finally you can call or email one of our friendly staff who will be happy to help you with your personailsed order.

Why choose JKL?

We know you have plenty of choice when it comes to purchasing workwear. So why choose JKL Clothing and what makes us different from the rest. 

First of all over 15 years experience within the workwear sector. We have been trading since 1998 so you can be sure we know what we are talking about.
