Carhartt is the latest workwear brand that Full Source carries. They are more than just a manufacturer of workwear but the brand of many hard-working people all over the globe. Workwear they craft include jackets, shirts, pants/jeans, and headwear.
A Little History on Carhartt
It all started back in 1889 when Hamilton Carhartt & Company started making overalls. It was ideal workwear for railroad workers during the time when locomotives were booming. By the early 1900s, the company expanded all over the US as well as internationally. They provided the government with their facilities during World War I. Making coveralls for soldiers and workwear for women entering factories on the home front. During the 1970s, work on the Alaskan Pipeline helped grow their brand recognition. It showed that their products could survive the most rugged conditions. Over the last 15 years, there were 80 million garments and accessories produced.
Give your workwear a name – your name or company’s logo. Not only will it help you stand out, but it’s a great way to advertise your business. Customization through Full Source comes in two different methods; embroidery and vinyl heat press. Embroidery is going to be your typical sewing process and most common for workwear. Quantity and thread count will dictate the cost of embroidery. Last but not least, is heat vinyl press (or cad cut). This is the process of taking vinyl and ironing it onto the uniform or garment. While there is no minimum, the price per cad cut is $6.99.
*Due to this manufacturer’s guidelines, you can only order one sample item per color. Carhartt workwear must get customization with your company logo or text.*
