Talent & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand
Superior Uniform Group®'s Design staff uses the latest computer technology to create our stock uniforms, as well as those for custom uniform presentations. Most of our custom uniform design is done on CAD systems which operate popular software that has been enhanced to better serve the uniform and apparel industry. We use versions of programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Micrographix Designer, Illustrator and InDesign, in addition to a number of Gerber applications. We also have the ability to accept and transmit MAC or PC-compatible graphics in tif, jpg, pdf, eps, psd, etc. Uniform design team members work from a common graphics database, which they have created and continuously build upon.
Research + Testing = Functional, High-Quality Fashion Uniforms
Superior Uniform Group®'s designers derive some of their direction from trend forecasting services, along with the utilization of industry-related periodicals and commercial publications. They are responsible for utilizing field research to track retail and commercial uniform trends. Textile and trim vendors keep the design department abreast of new fabrications and color forecasting, in part by constantly updating our in-house resource library. Our design team attends textile trade shows, and regular meetings are conducted at both our corporate offices and on location with all of the key domestic and global mills.
