The majority of businesses should be using letter headed paper, this is where branding and printing come together. Letterheads or other types of business stationery that you’re using should meet your current branding. Whilst it’s vital that you brand your business stationery, don’t forget to make sure that your print based marketing also has a coherent feel to it. Things like flyers, posters and leaflets should all be branded around your business. This includes using the same colours and ensuring that the use of your logo will help to make your brand instantly recognisable.

When it comes to work uniforms, many people don’t tend to enjoy wearing them, this is because they can be restrictive and uncomfortable, in some types of business, it’s necessary for it to be like this. However, where possible, try and make the uniform relaxing and comfortable, gone are the days of shirts and ties. Try using clothing items like t-shits, polos and hoodies for your uniform. The whole purpose of uniform is so that everyone has a similar look to them and this is where branding comes into play.
