Design Your Own Puffer Jackets

Why Are Puffer Jackets So Popular?

Not only have puffer jackets been reintroduced as one of the high street’s fashion staples, but they also serve a significant purpose.

The outer material of puffer jackets is usually made of polyester with an AC coating. This coating makes them soft to the touch and giving them an attractive shine finish.

What’s more, the jackets often boast a microfleece lining, ensuring optimum insulation. Puffer jacket filling is normally measured in grams per square meter (GSM), to quantify the thickness of the fabric or wadding.

Depending on your requirements, you can look for a heavy duty puffer with a high GSM,  or a more lightweight padded jacket, suitable for compact storage.

Embroidered Jackets and Company Logos

Today, it is increasingly common to see customised clothing everywhere you go. Whether you are at an airport or a sports field, you are bound to see embroidered jackets and jackets featuring company logos.

The presence of a company logo on your team clothing is key for your branding campaign. This is particularly true if your team regularly attend events, shows or works in the field.

Additionally, providing team members with branded clothing creates a strong sense of communion within a group. Encouraging your team to proudly wear your embroidered company logo will serve to strengthen your staff’s morale.

Why Embroidery Is So Popular

Branded embroidery is popular for good reason. No matter what sort of material the jacket is, well-crafted needlework looks smart, stylish and is permanent. Acorn printing run state-of-the-art embroidery machines that ensure your garment looks and stays perfect.

Jacket embroidery is an extremely popular option, primarily because stitching achieves a solid, slightly three-dimensional texture to a logo or company name.
