Samples are free ONLY if you confirm the order. Once the order is passed, part or all of the charge (quoted based on the work required) may be reimbursed as a discount on your total order invoice.
By communicating with us, our customer service professionals will confirm with you the appropriate final product details to be able to provide the best quote thereafter.
Kindly start by communicating your preferred items (if you already have a preferred item in mind) OR by browsing our partners’ links and online catalogues under the promotional items category. Pick your required products, fill in the request form and we will be able to quote you based on available stocks and or importations needed.
It all depends on the unit price of the item, as some fixed charges related to such importations might render the product in question too expensive to import efficiently. As a rule of thumb, a MOQ of 200pcs is required to get competitive pricing.
IF you already have a design, your order is considered a custom order and that is one of our specialties. Communicate it with us by filling the quotation form and we will provide you with an accurate quote based on several factors including but not limited to: quantity, material to be used, complexity and other factors that may influence the price.
If you don’t have a design, you are invited to browse our suggested models for guidance and inspiration, then with the help of our simulator, pick some preferences and communicate with us by filling the Request Quote form fields and we will provide you with the best price, pre-production sample if required and production timeline plus all other important information.
We provide you with our online standard size reference form to help you confirm the sizes required however if any doubt remains, we would provide you with our (size reference physical samples ) which are physical samples of uniforms with smaller to larger sizes that you can try out and test to confirm accordingly the required sizes of your personnel. Our sizes go all the way from XXS to 6XL and more if required. That’s the beauty of customization. We will meet your requirements!
NB: Expect higher prices for sizes bigger than 2XL due mainly to higher raw material consumption and higher production costs in general.
It all depends on your industry, purpose and environment where the uniform will be used among other determining factors. We provide several choices summarized into three categories mainly.
100% cotton, poly-cotton and fire retardant fabrics. If needed, we can always advise you which is best to fit your industry and budget.
We provide several colors in pre-selected weights, to best fit the industry based on extensive testing.
Our fabrics are certified and colors are stable.
All our fabrics regardless of composition are specially dyed to ensure stability and resistance to heavy washing, industrial usage, strong exposure to sunlight etc… Washing instruction labels are always clearly visible inside every piece and must be respected to ensure reliability and longest life span.
100% cotton fabrics are made of natural fibers and provide the highest comfort to heat and are among the most preferred. The downside is mostly the higher costs associated with these natural fabrics.
Poly-cotton fabrics on the other hand, with a higher percentage composition of polyester, provide a cheaper option, longer life span as a result of higher resistance provided by synthetic fibers vs natural cotton ones, yet a lower comfort level in heat, and higher risk in hazardous, flammable environments.
Your informed decision should be based on your priorities. Regardless, you can always rely on the best price/quality when you pass your order with us.
Yes it’s always possible to import a special custom order of raw material (fabric, accessories) however a minimum of 3000m per color of fabric is required.
For delivery, and to be always cost efficient, we aim to consolidate such special orders with our bulk orders imported regularly. So depending on the shipping dates of those, usually it takes around 30 days for production overseas then, another 45-60 days for sea shipping (this may vary depending on the ability to group your order with such bulk orders). We will make sure through clear and open communication that you know the situation on hand to find alternative solutions where deemed necessary such as partial air cargo for most urgent deliveries etc...
Delivery schedules are based on several variables (quantity, design complexity, other orders in production already…) however we commit and are known to provide the fastest delivery times in our market. We pledge to always respect our delivery deadlines. Our large number of machines with latest technologies and a highly qualified and trained workforce, enable us to provide the fastest delivery times in the market!
Printing is a more budget friendly option to brand your products, however it has a shorter life span.
On the other hand embroidery is a more expensive alternative providing richer, more vibrant and a more durable option.
For printing, prices are basically a function of: the number of colors involved, complexity of the design, size and order quantities.
For embroidery, prices are basically a function of: size, complexity and the order quantities.
