Read on to discover the best ways to personalize your workwear and create a professional appearance for your team.

What are the Printing Methods for Custom Logos on Safety Vests & Safety Jackets?

There are several printing methods available for adding a custom logo to your safety vest and safety jacket. The most common methods include screen printing, heat transfer, and embroidery. Let’s take a closer look at each option:

Screen Printing

This method involves transferring ink through a stencil or screen onto the fabric. It’s a cost-effective option for larger orders and offers long-lasting results. However, screen printing may not be suitable for highly detailed or complex designs.

Features of screen printing:

  1. Vibrant colors with long-lasting wash resistance
  2. Suitable for any fabric, offering wide applicability
  3. Availability of various effects
  4. Ideal for single-color or limited-color designs, with separate versions required for each color
  5. Economical for large volume orders

Common screen printing effects

  1. Water-based ink effect: The most common type, featuring a flat and smooth pattern
  1. Gum paste effect: By adding special materials, different visual and tactile effects can be achieved

Heat Transfer

Also known as vinyl transfer or heat press, this method uses heat and pressure to apply a design onto the fabric. It’s an excellent choice for smaller orders and intricate designs but may not be as durable as screen printing.

Features of heat transfer printing:

  1. Eco-friendly process: No water is required, and no sewage is generated. The procedure is short, and the finished product requires no post-treatment, such as steaming or washing.
  2. High-quality prints: The printed patterns are fine, rich, and clear, with an artistic touch that can replicate photographic and painted styles. If your logo has many colors, a heat transfer logo is the best option.
  3. Efficient production: The finished product rate is high, enabling multi-color patterns to be printed simultaneously without the need for matching.
  4. Fabric consideration: Be mindful of whether high temperatures will affect the fabric’s performance (e.g., avoid using heat transfer patterns on fully reflective fabrics).

Common heat transfer effect:


This method involves stitching the design directly onto the fabric using an embroidery machine. It’s a high-quality and durable option but can be more expensive and time-consuming than other methods.

Features of embroidery:

  1. Nice appearance
  2. Firm and will not fall off, high color fastness
  3. Suitable for heavy fabrics, such as pullovers, knitted fabrics, polar fleece, etc.
  4. It cannot be used on safety jackets with special functions, such as waterproofing.
  5. Expensive, suitable for small areas

Where Should I Place My Custom Logo on Safety Vests & Safety Jackets?

The placement of your custom logo is crucial for visibility and brand recognition. Here are some common logo placement options:

  1. Front Chest: Placing your logo on the front chest area ensures high visibility and easy recognition. It’s a popular choice for company logos and names.
  2. Back: A large logo or design on the back of the safety vest or safety jacket provides excellent visibility, especially for workers in busy environments.
  3. Sleeves: Adding a logo to the sleeves is another option for brand exposure, particularly on safety jackets where sleeves are more visible.
  4. Pockets: Customizing pockets with your logo is a subtle yet effective way to promote your brand.

Remember to consider the size and shape of your logo, the type of safety vest or jacket, and the industry requirements when choosing the logo placement.

There are various styles of safety clothing, and for different categories of safety wear, we have prepared the following artwork as a reference. The square box represents the largest area of the logo, and the red line box is the best place to put the logo on safety products.

Hi-Vis Reflective Safety Sash

Due to the limited area, the logo is not as conspicuous as it is on large-area clothing without affecting the product’s function. But if you want people to see the logo on safety products at a glance, we recommend the left and right sides of the front of the waist first. Of course, the center of the back of the waist is also a good place to put it.

Running Safety Vest

Although the area of this type of product itself is not very large, it is closed on the side, so there is a lot of space for logos on the front and back. If you want to be conspicuous enough, placing a large logo in the center of the front is definitely the first choice. If you just want the most common position, then the left chest is the most ideal. Or if you want to be low-key, the waist position can be considered.

Hi-vis Reflective Cycling Vest

For reflective safety running/cycling vests, if you don’t want the logo on the left chest to destroy the left and right balance, you can also place it in the center of the back yoke. If you want a low-key effect, you can place the logo on safety products at the bottom.

Hi-vis Reflective Safety Vest

Generally speaking, the logo placed on the front is more conspicuous than the back, so the left chest, the right chest, the lower left part, and the lower right part are all places that can be used. Of course, there is a large area to choose from on the back, but the back is usually used to put the slogan, and the upper part of the back is the best place to put the slogan.

Safety T-Shirt

There are two types of T-shirts, short sleeve and long sleeve, but there is not much difference between them. Except for the left chest position, the front of the T-shirt is a whole piece. Therefore, if there is an oversized logo, it can also be placed on the front. For brands that want to be low-key, the sleeve is also a good part, usually the left sleeve (shoulder to elbow) midpoint position is the first choice, and the cuff is the second choice.

Safety Sweatshirt Hoodie

The best places are the left chest position, sleeve, and upper center back.

Reflective Jackets & Parkas

The best place to put the logo on safety products is still the left chest. In addition, the right chest, the sleeve, the back collar, the center of the upper back, and the center of the bottom of the back are also common placement positions.

Safety Overalls

Our common overalls have a front chest patch, so the first choice is the left chest. Of course, the center back, and the legs are also regular positions.

Safety Pants

Regardless of trousers or shorts, the best logo placement is below the crotch of the left trouser leg to avoid the problem that the logo is covered by the top. Of course, pants usually have multiple pockets, so the position above the knee and below the pocket is also a common place to put the logo.

Reflective Helmet Covers

The area of the helmet cover itself is limited. If the logo is very short, the center of the front is a more common position; if the logo is relatively long, it will be difficult to see clearly due to the limited space, so the sides are a better choice.

Safety Hat/Cap

The most common styles are hi-vis caps, reflective knit hats, and hi-vis hard hat shields. For caps and reflective beanies, the center of the front is the best position. There are more choices for the safety hard hat shield. If it is a large logo, it can be placed in the middle of the whole piece, and a small logo can be placed on both sides and at the bottom.

Cooling Towels/cooling bandana

The best placement is at the bottom of both ends. Towels have a relatively large area and a wide cross-section, so if you want the logo to be very conspicuous, you can directly cover the entire area. Cooling bandanas have a relatively small area and a narrow cross-section and are usually placed on both sides near the bottom.

Safety Leg Covers

This type is a wrap-around one-piece product with a relatively wide cross-section, and the placement position is usually in the center.

Reflective Armband

Armbands are also wrap-around one-piece products, but the cross-sections are relatively narrow. The best placement is in the center, and it is also more common to be left or right in the middle.

Reflective Backpack Cover

The size of the backpack cover is moderate, and the best placement is in the upper center. If the logo is too long or you want the logo to be more conspicuous, the left and right sides are also good choices.

Dog Safety Vest

The best position is back. The head, center, and tail of the back are all conventional positions, and a small part will be placed on both sides.
