16 Essential Questions to Ask When Choosing Your Uniform Supplier

  1. Brand Image: What image do you want to project with your new corporate apparel?
  2. Durability: Will the garments withstand daily wear? Are they made from long-lasting fabrics and manufactured to retain quality?
  3. Consistency: Will the same styles, fabrics, and colors be available for at least three years?
  4. Embellishment Services: Do they offer in-house embellishment services? How extensive is the offer, and are they outsourcing to another company, potentially increasing costs?
  5. Reordering Process: If an employee damages a garment or you hire a new employee, will they receive the exact same style and color? What is the process for reordering one-offs?
  6. Warehousing and Delivery: Do you have an option to hold stock? What is your maximum guaranteed delivery time?
  7. Product Sourcing: How and where do you source your products? What does your supply chain look like, and what guarantees can you provide regarding delivery? What kind of relationships do you have with your suppliers and manufacturers?
  8. Experience: How long have they been in business?
  9. Showroom Availability: Do they have a shopfront or showroom you can visit, or are they only online?
  10. Industry Specialization: Do they specialize in the industry-specific garments you need?
  11. Accessibility: How accessible are they? When you need a question answered or need to place an order, will you get a quick response? Will you have a dedicated Account Manager for one point of contact?
  12. Program Implementation Experience: Do they have experience implementing a program similar to yours? What type of clients do they cater to? Are they a similar size, industry, or have comparable requirements? Do they have case studies and testimonials?
  13. Distribution Versatility: Do you want a distributor who can put together a program from multi-manufacturers for extensive choices and value across uniforms, merchandise, and display signage, or do you want to work with individual companies specializing in one area?
  14. Visuals of Embellishment: Can they provide a visual of what the uniform embellishment will look like?
