When we think about putting a company logo on clothing for events, we often think of T-shirts for attendees. Yet, company apparel for volunteers and staff is just as critical—especially when it comes to safety and visibility.
When planning your next event, consider some stylish options to keep everyone looking their best. Whether it’s an apron, polo or hat, we’ve got you covered with branded employee apparel ideas.
7 benefits of company apparel
- Improve visibility
- Provide purposeful features
- Keep people comfortable
- Stand out in a crowd
- Prepare for the weather
- Keep staff looking fresh
- Provide convenience
1. Improve visibility with reflective vests
Directing event traffic can be dangerous, so keep your staff and volunteers safe. American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved safety apparel isn’t just recommended—it’s required.
The High Vis Reflective Safety Vest has ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 Level 2 certification and is tear- and snag-resistant. It will keep everyone visible as they provide directions in parking lots and on sidewalks.
2. Provide purposeful features
These moisture-wicking shirts are walkie-talkie ready, with mic clips at the shoulders and lower placket. They also feature a double pen pocket on the left sleeve for comfort and convenience.
3. Keep staff comfortable with performance apparel
While a bright, sunshine-filled day makes for a great event, too much sun can make volunteers and staff hot and uncomfortable. To keep them feeling refreshed, put your company logo on a Silk Touch Performance Sport Polo, available for men or women.
It combines moisture-wicking technology to keep staff cool with snag-resistant fabric so those running your event look their best all day long.
For cooler days, the Defender Performance 1/4-Zip Pullover for women or men has the same moisture-wicking properties with long sleeves for maximum comfort in any weather. Both the shirt and pullover are available in multiple colors.
4. Stand out in a crowd with brightly colored hats
While outfitting event staff in company apparel is an excellent way to get your logo seen, hats can create an added layer of visibility while protecting from the sun or rain.
The Reflective Safety Cap can help your staff members stand out in a crowd. Available in Safety Orange and Yellow, your staff—and your brand—are sure to be noticed.
5. Prepare for the weather with water-resistant company apparel
Everyone loves an outdoor event, but sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.
The Darien Lightweight Packable Jacket for men or women is wind- and water-resistant, with convenient side pockets and a rollaway hood. It’s light and packs down into the zippered hand pocket, making it easy to carry. It’s ideal for anyone who will be outdoors in unpredictable weather.
Prepare volunteers for a sudden downpour that might otherwise put your event on pause with the Rally Disposable Poncho. This convenient and easy-to-carry hooded poncho comes in a snap pouch that fits in a pocket or bag.
6. Keep chefs looking fresh with a protective layer
If your summer event includes a barbeque, your grill master will appreciate a Bib Apron with Three Pockets.
With the softness of cotton and a durable front pocket for storing utensils, this apron keeps clothing clean and makes a great thank-you gift for your volunteer chefs.
7. Provide a convenient carrier
Event staff and volunteers often must carry important information or emergency gear. The Off Roader Travel Bag has a zippered main compartment, multiple pockets and pen loops, providing a simple, hands-free way to carry essentials.
