MIDDLETOWN, Va., Dec. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In many jobs, work gloves are an essential tool to protect employees' hands and can do double duty by showcasing printed logos and branding, giving a company free advertisement and exposure. Before investing in custom printed work gloves, there are 5 important facts that should not be ignored. This short and simple guide from Promotional Gloves helps to make an informed decision.
1. Why Are Gloves Needed In The First Place?
Are gloves for customers? Selling branded gloves can create revenue and advertising at the same time. Are they for employees? Gloves can be gifts or used as a reward and double as advertising when employees wear them out in public. Choosing a quality glove will ensure long-term usage and repeated advertising exposure.
2. What Type Of Imprint Should Be Used?
The type of imprint on custom printed gloves should be based on the desired presentation that best reflects a company. The first step is to determine the glove material and style, since certain imprint methods don't work on all materials. Multiple colors that involve a 4 color process imprint make a bold statement, but this process can limit the type of glove due to the printing mechanism. Leather gloves are classy, but require branding instead of a stamped imprint.
3. Consider The Climate
The local weather conditions, whether it is mostly hot or typically cold year round, will dictate the glove material. In addition, if gloves are to be used indoors in a climate controlled factory, or in a freezer, then that will require either insulated or non-insulated gloves.
4. What Sizes are Needed?
Many gloves are available as one-size-fits-all, while others come in specific sizes such as medium, large and extra large. Some specify male or female sizes as well. It is helpful to determine the target audience first before glove sizes are purchased.
5. How Many Pairs Are Needed?
Many times the quantity is determined by budget and the quality of the glove desired. For example, gloves used as a promotional giveaway to customers would be a larger quantity and lower budget per item than gloves being given as gifts to employees or sold in a shop.
These are some important questions to ask before investing in custom work gloves. Imprinted work gloves offer a great advertising opportunity with repeated use, and repeated exposure, helping companies to spread their brand in places that would otherwise not be reached through traditional advertising channels.
