Establishing Brand Awareness 

Establishing brand awareness for you new business can be rather challenging when facing a huge number of start-up obstacles, although with the right guidance, getting your ideas out can be an exciting time. Questions such as What's my niche? How can i stand out from the rest? will often pass the entreprenur's mind, and that's where branding will play a huge part.

In the case of REIGN Theatre Arts Academy - a new and upcoming theatre academy specialising in the development of Drama, Musical Theatre, and Dance techniques, came to us seeking personlised workwear. With our many years of experience dealing with companies of different sectors, we used our knowledge to offer clothing just right for a dance club. We recommended a lightweight, fitted style - with high quality printing. REIGN were delighted with the results.

               

Consistency is important to us, that's why our design and print team took the time to get the logo and print just right. From idea to completion, creating branded workwear was very essential for REIGN.

Should You Have Your Logo Embroidered?

There are many great reasons for having your company's logo embroidered onto plain t shirts and other garments.
 
First and foremost, it creates a clear identity and brand. Having your logo embroidered will help you stand out from the rest and will draw the attention of your audience. The more someone sees your logo the more likely you're able to attain reputability and trust from your clients. An embroidered shirt is virtually a walking billboard. Embroidery also creates a more professional look for yourself and employees. It shows you as a company are serious about what you do and what you have to offer.
 
The durabilty of threads used at BluDog makes embroidery an outstanding option for industrial and heavy duty workwear.
 
So, having your company's logo embroidered on t shirts will bring many benefits. From building brand identity to earning trust from clients, will impact your business massively.

NHS - Ripple

Recently, BluDog received an order from Ripple, an initiative ran by the Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. The order consisted of printed t shirts and embroidered hoodies with the same logo and colours. To complete this, we had to edit the colours to match their logo and handpicked the threads that represented the logo best. When it came to the t shirts, we used Photoshop to create the file and used saturation and hue to match the thread colours. We hand pressed the t shirts prior to printing to ensure the print was clear and crisp as possible. After the clothing was created we ensured all of items were cleaned, printed correctly and the correct sizes/colours.
 
Here at BluDog we do all the work for you! All you need to do is send us your logo and tell us your requirements. If you don’t have a logo, not to worry! We can also design logos for you.

Embroidery and Vinyl

Bludog have worked on a new production video. In this video we have contained the use of vinyl and embroidery. Embroidery can be used to give a clean finish with multi coloured designs and different sized designs, we can also embroider text and logos. Embroidery is also long lasting and looks professional as a crest or back. Vinyl Transfer is also a very good option, Vinyl is better for text and smaller orders but can also be used for logos. When in contrast these two techniques leave a modern and stylish finish to your clothing.
 
Bludog can supply a large range of clothes including, hoodies, tshirts and jackets! We will accommodate all orders and can help you find your ideal workwear, corporate wear, sports clothing or even promotional wear for less.

We were asked by Coventry University to create screen printed t shirts for their varsity games with Warwick University. In order to keep costs low it was decided the design should be one colour.

Feeling Stitchy?

Agra Palace, the award winning indian restaurant located in Warwickshire recently built a quote with us for staff uniforms and logo design. Our helpful team  assisted them throughout the complete process from production to the delivery of the finished garment. Originally the resturant requested polo shirts, t shirts, workwear shirts and a range of catering gear. With our consultation Agra Palace chose the option of having embroidered aprons with their logo ranging in size, whether the staff were working in the kitchen alongside chefs or if they were in the shop front.

Succesful? Very much. Agra Palace saw a huge improvement, not only from their existing clothing however their restaurant has become a more attractive place and the staff now look much more presentable.

The Print Debate Continues

One of the most frequent questions our t shirt designers and printing team get is, "Which is better? Screen printing or digital printing?" Both processes are commonly used in the production of printed t shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts and much more. As with many things, they have their pros and cons. Let's approach things fairly...

Screen printing, also referred to as silk screen printing, is most cost effective when ordering in bulk. This is usually down to the production side of things, the longer the run, the cheaper the unit cost. Going with the screen print option, you'll generally recieve a brighter and sometimes blockier print, however its difficult to attain the detail quality of a digitally printed garment.

Digital printed clothing on the other hand is the easier option for lower quantity print runs. This way you're able to attain detailed photographic prints which are widely customisable. The drawback of this option is that colour matching is much more difficult  whereas screen printed can be matched to the exact pantone colour. Also digital direct to garment printing is only possible using water based inks where as screen printing has a range of options for different looks and effects.

So what's your pick?
