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.

Acorn Down Under

Romsey Fire Brigade (CFA)G’day to Romsey Fire Brigade (CFA)

It’s 10,499.09 miles from Acorn’s premises in Coventry to the town of Romsey, which is 30 miles north of Melbourne in Australia.

Distance is no object for us though and we were delighted to be able to help out Romsey Fire Brigade with a range of personalised garments.

personalised garments for a fire brigade

We are sure that they are always a well turned out group but as you can see in the photo they look especially smart now.

The Brigade is part of Victoria’s Country Fire Authority (CFA) which co-ordinates community and volunteer fire services throughout the state.  Apart from providing fire and rescue services (with their impressive array of fire engines and support vehicles) Romsey Fire Brigade is very active in raising money for community projects.  It is worth taking a look at the Brigade’s Facebook page to see what’s going on – they have one or two different challenges to their UK counterparts.

Romsey is now officially our furthest away customer…unless you know better.
