Do you all have a special printed t-shirt for the cake business when making delivery ?
Need opinion.

Currently no (but i'm still in the process of getting a logo) However once I get my logo choosen i will do a couple of nice polo or button down shirts with my logo/name for meetings and delivery. Along with an apron incase i need to do any final touchups on site.

Fat Girl Cakes......... (I like that name !!!!!)

You see a chef coat is too hot for the caribbean if you have to be on the road.

@ Leily


Where are you planning to get it printed, online or locally.

Well it's easily 100 degrees with 99% humidity in the summer here in VA... I just wear a t-shirt until I get to the location, throw the coat on, deliver the cake, and rip it off.

Thanks on the name!

I wear a polo shirt which has my business name printed on. I also have t-shirts but use the polo more.

I'll probably actually have my aunt do it. She has an embroidery business and i like the looks of embroidery instead of printing.

I don't wear a shirt with a logo when I deliver. I usually wear black pants and a top--kinda business casual. What a nice idea, though.

I am planning on getting some t-shirts printed for farmer's market selling, which surely could be used on delivery. I think it adds a nice touch.

We wear chef coats with our name on them, but usually just for Wedding cake deliveries. We would like to eventually get something more casual, like polos, for other deliveries and meetings.

For those of you who wear chef coats....where did you order them? I'm especially interested in the short sleeve one.

I got my chef coats from ChefWear. http://www.chefwear.com/ They have several different colors which are hard to find in women's at other places. I got them embroidered at a small place in NC. I like to support other small businesses so if I need more things embroidered in the future, I would find another small place here, in VA.

I would recommend, if you do go the embroidering route, that you get it done at a place that you can use again and again. The most expensive part is converting the logo so it can be used in the embroidery machines and that can cost anywhere from $100-200, and that doesn't include the actual sewing or the coat or shirt. If you use the same place over and over, they will already have your logo ready to go so you will only have to pay to convert it once.
