what colour custom tie should you get for your business

Here at James Morton, we’re expert tie manufacturers and specialise in creating high-quality custom-made corporate ties, created specifically to match your business requirements. Whether you wish to create a tie as part of a work uniform, or for a one-off corporate occasion, you will want to make sure that your outfit is given a smart and professional look. But when there are so many colour options to choose from, how do you go about picking the best ones for your business? Which are the right colours for your company when it comes to creating a custom tie? 

Create a tie to match your brand

If you’re looking to create a customised tie for your business, as well as taking into consideration any branding you will wish to use – including colours and logos – it may also be worth thinking about the company working environment or the specific occasion that you’re creating the tie for. Traditional industries such as insurance or real estate may require a more formal type of tie for a conventional look. One customer, Britannia P&I, for example, went for a classic blue silk dye-printed satin tie in their company colour, featuring their logo as an all-over print. Silk can be both dye or digitally printed to achieve great colour quality and a high degree of detail to custom designs. 

Polyester ties are also a great option for corporate ties. Our customer Barratt Homes chose a smart grey tie in woven polyester, with their company logo at the tip. Polyester ties are very durable and can be worn every day with ease. As well as woven options, we can print your custom design onto polyester ties – this is a popular choice for transport drivers, guards and cabin crew as they are easily matched to corporate colours and are very cost effective. There’s also no limit to the number of colours that you can choose to print. 

Don’t forget to add some personality

In terms of customisation, James Morton can add whatever features you want into the tie, whether it’s flagging up a special anniversary or featuring a one-off logo. If you’re looking to create ties for a particular promotion or want something a bit more fun, it’s a great idea to include this into the pattern of your tie – a brightly coloured tie, for example, can be just the job for a special occasion. Take a look at our Product Gallery for some inspiration.  

Our customers often choose woven emblems incorporated into the patterns that highlight the brand. It was no surprise that the Post Office chose a pillar-box red colour for their corporate ties, decorated with their logo. 

A formal look for front-of-house

As the face of your business, you will wish for your front-of-house staff to look their smartest. A formal tie in a smart colour to match the rest of their uniform is certainly a popular option to enhance a company’s image. James Morton can provide men’s, women’s and unisex designs, as well as clip-on ties. Popular colours include black, red, grey and silver, either plain, or with a stripe.

We can also incorporate a company logo if it’s appropriate for your business. We’ve created ties for many corporate clients in the hotel and restaurant world, including the Ritz Hotel and the Soho House Group. There’s no better way to raise awareness of your brand than with a smart uniform worn by your employees.
