Why Personalised Gilets Are So Popular

Why Are Gilets are Pipping Jackets to the Post?

At Acorn Printing, we sell lots of personalised hoodies, jackets, and coats to corporations who have staff working outdoors or in cold environments.

While all of these clothing items serve their purpose, there can be one major hang up. Thick sleeves and padding around the arm and shoulder area can limit physical movement, and even increase the likelihood of accidents occurring.

If your staff are carrying heavy goods, equipment or tools, having the freedom of movement that a gilet provides can be imperative.

How to Personalise Your Gilets

The key advantage of gilets is that you benefit from both the warmth and insulation that the body of the garment provides, and you have much more flexibility in the arm and shoulder area.

Gilets can be very smart and have been popular historically for wearing during country events such as horse shows and shooting. Our contemporary range of gilets extends beyond these styles of gilet, and are an attractive choice for corporate workwear.

We are able to personalise gilets with your business or group logo, name or message on the:

  • Left Breast
  • Right Breast
  • Centre Back
  • Nape of Neck
  • Back

And offer exquisite embroidery services. These are perfect for a team, your staff, or even as giveaways to your best customers.

With Acorn Printing, the more items you purchase, the lower the price of each individual item gets, meaning that you will get the best value for your money.

Workwear Printing

Personalised workwear for a winning appearance

Paul Hitchens, author of “Create the Perfect Brand”, recently said in an interview,

“If a potential audience knows nothing about a company then appearances will be all they have to judge the organization by.”

For small businesses in particular that statement has some massive implications. It means that you can be the best builder, carpenter, electrician or painter there is, but if you don’t look the part then you may not win the business or attract people back.

Looking as smart and tidy as circumstances allow is the baseline for a winning appearance. In addition you can give clients an impression of team work and a shared identity by having:

  • the same type of clothing
  • a shared style across different clothes
  • the same colour apparel

Of course the best way of creating a strong image is to ensure that the company logo is prominently displayed. You might even consider adding promotional messages to provide customers with extra information about what you do.

We have a stock of dedicated work wear and Hi-Vis clothing including: jackets, trousers, warehouse coats and overalls in a range of styles and colours. These are hardwearing items that can be customised with your logos and messages with a variety of embroidery and printing options.

To make sure that everybody in your organisation presents the right look we also stock business shirts & blouses, polo shirts, and jackets that can also be printed and embroidered.

Quality Garment Embroidery

Embroidered clothing: We’ve got it all sewn up.

No, not another excuse to talk about the boss’s racing success (although he did do pretty well driving an Aston Martin in the GT Cup recently).

We just thought that the picture really showed off the quality of our embroidery.

High quality embroidered garments from Acorn

All of the text and logos were supplied and digitised in house by our embroidery team.  The imagery was then sent off to specialist race suit suppliers HRX, in Italy, for manufacture, although most of our embroidery is done in-house.

Whether it’s polo shirts for an employee team, sports shirts, freshers’ hoodies or promotional caps, you can rely on us for customised garments

Check out our website to see the huge range of clothing we offer. Everything can be personalised with embroidery or printing.
