Don’t overlook knitwear when you’re buying your wholesale uniforms and corporate clothing for your business. There’s no reason why it can’t play a role in your company’s image. And compared to the alternative – all your staff and contractors bridging their own sweaters and cardigans to wear over shirts, blouses and T-shirts, it’s a great way to maintain your branding, impose authority and show who’s who to guests, visitors and colleagues.
The types of knitwear we sell at wholesale prices at Screen Textiles are typically easy to care for, hard wearing jumpers and other similar tops. You don’t always want to be dealing with woollens and all the extra careful washing and drying that comes with them – any business will want knitwear that will retain its shape, offer warmth and look smart, while being easy to have professionally laundered.
Staff should also be able to wash the knitwear themselves without going to all the hassle of setting special hand wash and extra-careful drying procedures that you would expect of them if they were using wool knitwear. However, if you value the extra quality and warmth that comes from natural fibres over ease of washing, we do stock a range of sumptuous genuine wool tops at superb wholesale prices.
There’s a surprising range of industries that have a demand for good quality, durable knitwear. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Among the most visible is the security industry. It’s completely normal to see patrols and desk security dressed in smart, almost military style knitwear to both impress their authority on anyone who sees them, but also to keep them ready for the indoor and outdoor mix that the job entails. These 100% acrylic security sweaters have a ribbed design for maximum comfort, and elbow patches for extra protection. If you’re kitting out your own security team, why nor ask us about our printing and embroidery services? We can put company logos, employee names and “security” patches on all your jumpers to really make them stand out and look like part of the team.
There’s also a place for branded or plain knitwear in office and retail environments. It can look smart and approachable when staff are wearing a smart jumper, cardigan or tank top in their place of work. Straight away there’s a casual vibe that softens the corporate look of a shirt and tie, and if you’re in a customer facing business, that can be a great bridge between the inside and the outside. It might even be a functional measure, too – for example if staff sometimes have to go to an outdoor storage area or refrigerated room during their daily work, so need some mild (but not over the top) protection against the chill.
If you own a restaurant, hotel, bar or cafe, there’s another great setting where knitwear fits in perfectly for a stylish but relaxed atmosphere. It’s especially fitting when you have outdoor seating – waiting and bar staff are often popping in and out regularly, and that extra layer can make it a more comfortable experience. Our knitwear is perfect for layering, and isn’t excessively warm or too thin to make any difference. Over a T-shirt, long sleeve top or shirt, they can make a really smart look for all your hospitality staff.
Many companies have solely outdoor catering, too. There’s a burgeoning industry surrounding catering and retail for festivals, weddings, corporate events and so on, and there are probably going to be much more outdoor events now that people have got used to it – why not get your staff looking uniformly smart and staying cosy with some branded knitwear to set the scene for your business?
We stock the complete range of knitwear styles for you and your employees, so whatever you’re looking for, in a range of colours, look no further than Screen Textiles. The most basic and commonly purchased is the simple jumper. Available in V-neck, crew neck and roll neck, our sweaters will always help you to pull off the style you’re aiming to achieve.
Tank tops are always popular too. They are a comfortable alternative that goes well with a long sleeve shirt, blouse or jersey top. Without the thick fabric on the arms, they allow maximum flexibility for manual or office work, while keeping the torso comfy and warm without overheating.
Or perhaps a cardigan is more what you’re looking for? We stock them in V-neck and high top, button-up or zipper, so whatever vibe you’re going for, there’s a cardigan with your name on it in our stock, with prices starting at as little as £15, and great discounts if you buy multiple garments in your order.
Finally, there’s the great range of colours available to match your company profile. The basic Premier V-neck sweater comes in eight different colours, for example, and the high quality Glenmuir Lambswool Sweater has six beautiful shades to choose from.
Let Screen textiles become your number one supplier for the complete range of knitwear.
