Customer Portal

 

My dashboard

 

 

Why should a customer have to wait on our schedule? Through our customer portal, customers have access to up-to-date information around the clock. MCR Safety's customer portal is a private, secure website that enables distributors 24/7 access to account-specific details. Users can see invoices, open orders, pricing, and much more.  Plus, it’s all in one central place.
 
One of the best features of MCR Safety's customer portal is that we also provide product insight that matches that a customer's past purchasing history. When it comes to protecting people, we always want our distributors armed with information. When we modify a current product or add a new lineup that matches a distributor's previous orders, we can easily make you aware of it. We encourage our distributors to go ahead and sign up today for this around-the-clock customer service.


Customized PPE

 

Cusomize

 

Custom PPE is designed to meet the customer's needs, not the demands or wishes of MCR Safety. Life is full of choices, and selecting PPE is no different. Whether you are looking to stand out or to build a sense of community within your organization, MCR Safety offers customizable PPE options for any situation. Customized PPE can be as simple as adding a logo to a vest or text to a glove. It can also be a little more in-depth, such as creating a custom product that doesn't  currently exist.

Below, we highlight all the custom services MCR Safety offers as it pertains to customizing PPE.

 


Logo Safety Gear

Your Logo

 

For the most diverse PPE selection on the market, customers turn to MCR Safety to get their PPE customized wherever possible. When you are looking to spread the message about your brand, we're here to help make that happen.

 

 

Yes, we can add a company’s logo or text to PPE - it has never been easier. At our global distribution headquarters, located outside Memphis, TN, we customize safety glasses, hi-vis garments, FR clothing, and work gloves. Our next several sections highlight how customer imprinting works for each of MCR Safety's products.

Our overall customizing capabilities include: 

  • Traditional silk screen printing
  • Pad printing
  • Reflective and full-color heat transfers
  • Embroidery and embroidered patches

The PPE a worker requires depends on the industry and the work being performed. Do not worry, we offer customized options in all MCR Safety product categories. Before we jump into each one, let us highlight the advantages custom logo safety gear can offer.

 


Advantages to a logo imprinted

 

Advantges

 

Custom-branded PPE goes beyond just advertising. Of course, if you are marketer, you are already sold on promoting branded PPE that everyone else will see, but when it comes to those working out on a job site, there are even more reasons why custom PPE makes sense. Here are some of the reasons customized PPE is beneficial:

  •   Helps customers easily identify employees
  •   Customized PPE develops pride across a company’s workforce
  •   PPE is treated with a higher level of value, ensuring products last longer than standard PPE
  •   Helps workers identify what gear belongs to whom on a jobsite
  •   Promotes safety awareness, like with our Watch Your Hands gloves
  •   Companies want their PPE emblazoned with their own brand

Also, branded PPE of our latest offerings make great company promotional gifts! We touch on this topic more in the next section.

 


Promotional Products

 

Promotional Products

 

Promoting a company's identity and message in the marketplace doesn't have to end with the company's latest media advertisement. It can be carried across the entire workforce, meeting your customer face-to-face.   
So, why don't you promote your brand, with promotional PPE? Companies utilize numerous types of promotional products to support their brand: promotional pens, coffee mugs, tape measures, and countless other products. Why not customize products like PPE that also keep workers safe? We discuss this more below.

 

Brand
Branding PPE helps promote your company's identity!

 

Promotional PPE products are also excellent products for employees to hand out at tradeshows, events, customer visits, etc. When giving away customized PPE to your customers, you're promoting your brand and equipping someone with a product that protects them from workplace hazards. Think of the gratitude they'll have for your company when that safety glass protects their eyes from a flying object. They will remember you for the rest of their lives!

 


Custom Imprinting Process

 

Custom Imprinting Process

 

We customize PPE all the time with companies’ logos, slogans, and brand names. Maybe you have a new idea for a t-shirt logo design. Great! Our inside team can advise you of your options throughout the process. It's super simple, so let's walk you through the process.

 

 
 

 

Once we have received your order for custom imprinted PPE, our service design team will work with you to create artwork representing your company for the product being purchased. Here are the steps involved with customizing PPE from MCR Safety:

  • Step 1 – Choose your product.
  • Step 2 – Place your order with a preferred distributor.
  • Step 3 – Send us your artwork and your preferred imprinting location.
  • Step 4 We will create a replicated image of the product with your artwork. Please allow 4-5 business days to create the custom artwork.
  • Step 5 Approve the file we send for your custom order.
  • Step 6 In 7-10 business days after receiving the approved artwork, depending on the product, you’ll will be wearing your customized PPE with pride!

Here are the product categories you may want to consider having customized with your company logo or artwork.

 


Work Glove Imprinting

 

Work Glove Imprinting

 

Industry professionals have worn MCR Safety’s leather work gloves and cotton gloves since the 1970s.  In the 21st century, you can have them personalized with your logo or custom imprinted with your unique message!

 
We apply heat transfer logos on select styles of gloves.

Customized Safety Glasses

What could be better than protecting your eyes with custom Z87 safety glasses? Showing off that company logo is how! Imprinting MCR Safety work glasses with your personalized text or logo is an excellent option for those wanting a custom look. And custom-printed safety glasses are our specialty. In any given year, we create over 1 million personalized safety glasses.

Custom-printed safety vests, hi-vis garments, and custom t-shirts

Imprint T-shirt

 

Imagine all your workers wearing easy-to-see hi-vis apparel and advertising your company at the same time. No problem! Security guards and law enforcement customize their gear, why can't a construction company or manufacturing facility do the same?

Printed logos look terrific on the left front area of most garments. For those who prefer a larger logo, those generally look better on the back of a garment. Although every logo you add to a garment is an additional cost, you'll be amazed at how inexpensive customizing PPE can be. And it may pay for itself in advertising for your company, so don’t let cost deter you from promoting on both sides!

 

 

 

We can imprint on all of the following garment types:

  • Hi-Vis Vests
  • Hi-Vis T-shirts
  • Hi-Vis Jackets
  • Hi-Vis Rain Jackets

 

Coat Imprint
Customized Bomber Jackets are a big hit during the winter months! For giveaways, your customers or employees will only be thinking positive thoughts about you as they stay warm in one of these with your logo clearly present.

All of our imprinting takes place at our U.S. facilities.

With a wide variety of colors, configurations, and sizes available, we are sure to have a garment you're going to want to wear. Customized hi-vis t-shirts, especially the moisture-wicking kind, are always popular during the hot summer months. How much do custom t-shirts cost? Request a quote, and we will get you all the information required to complete the transaction.


 

Custom Safety Vest - Build Your Own

 

Customize Safety Vests

 

In the past, choices for custom public safety vests with quick turnaround times were minimal and only offered at high retail points. With MCR Safety's Interactive Online Custom Garment program, you can design and customize your hi-vis safety vests or t-shirts with quick turnaround times. Customization is now an economic reality because of our low minimums and low prices.

The process is as simple as A, B, C. Check out all the details on our PDF.

You can check out the build-your-own vest website, too.

 


Logo Examples

 

We've been manufacturing PPE for well over 40 years now. During that time, we've added logos on a wide selection of products. Here is a look at some.

 

Logo Examples

There is no better way to protect workers and advertise a company than by having someone wearing PPE with your logo on it — especially if it looks amazing on the person! If you are having any reservations about the process, costs, or time involved, don't worry.



When you buy MCR Safety PPE with a customized logo, you will experience a process that is efficient, fast, and simple.

 


Common Logo Questions

What are logo imprinted products?

  • In our case, logo imprinted products are PPE emblazoned with your logo, making them the perfect product!

How to remove logo stamp from leather gloves?

  • It depends on the quality of the glove, but we don't recommend doing this on PPE, as it may hurt the product's structural integrity.

Is it possible to custom design safety glasses?

  • Yes! We’ve highlighted our logo program above.  If you’re wanting a brand-new template design for a safety glass, we can accommodate such requests.  As an eyewear manufacturer, we can customize any style.  There are minimum requirements to have a brand new safety glass created, however, it can be done.  If you’re interested, please leave us a comment above.

How to find custom leather gloves?

  • MCR Safety offers customization on some leather gloves. If you request a quote above in our glove imprinting section, we will get you in contact with a distributor who will be able to process your order. Feel free to leave us comments or questions about any other specific needs, too.

How to imprint logo on leather?

  • We utilize a heat transfer method to apply your logo to our leather PPE.

How do I make a logo to imprint on a jacket?

  • We can’t speak for everyone here, but we imprint on both the front and back of garments. We utilize silk screen printing and heat transferring techniques.

Where can I imprint a logo?

  • It all depends on the product. Safety glasses are typically imprinted in the corners, whereas many garment imprints will be located on the chest, sleeve, or back.

 


FR Embroidery

Embroidery is a logo technique that involves a stitching machine.

It sure would be nice if FR clothing came with a customized company logo on it. Guess what? We've got you covered! At MCR Safety, we provide embroidery and personalization services for most FR garments at our main U.S. distribution facility outside Memphis, TN.

We've recently updated our embroidery equipment and can now stitch on a variety of products, including FR clothing.

 


Smart PPE

 

Wearable Technology - Smart PPE

 

Wouldn’t it be great if safety gear could talk? With today's modern technology, is it possible to have dangerous hazards and situations communicated before they even occur? Could real-time data guide employee behavior and keep workers safe? This is possible with MCR Safety’s PPE powered by Corvex™ technology!

As we highlight in our blog, The Age of Smart PPE Technology, we only need to know the hazards your workers face to introduce additional PPE styles powered with Corvex™ technology.

 


Custome PPE - Made from Scratch

 

 

 

There is no one single recipe that incorporates all the tasty dishes we love eating. When it comes to PPE and protecting people from workplace hazards, there is no one single item that will protect all workers from all dangers.

Is there PPE you need based on the application performed that we don't stock? Maybe you have a workforce that requires one of our gloves in an XS size. Or, perhaps you would like to add a cut-resistant liner or added reinforcement to a glove. Custom protection is often required for unique hazards. Thankfully, since we manufacture our own products, we can customize virtually any PPE into the product you need.


962 Glove

One example of the custom PPE MCR Safety makes is our 962 glove, made for the utility industry. We incorporated reinforced rugged Kevlar® and silicone directly onto the palm as a result of the requests that came from that industry.
 
There are some minimum requirements to customize PPE from scratch. However, do not let that stop you from reaching out to us. Consider this: that custom cut-resistant glove you need may be the difference between someone suffering a permanent lifelong injury and coming home in one piece. We are happy to assist and answer any questions you have regarding this custom PPE program.

Let’s get PPE that fits your taste and meets your protection needs!

 


Vending and Tagging Services

 

Vending Packaged PPE

 

For decades, MCR Safety has labeled, tagged, and wrapped our gloves for easy delivery to the customer. However, vending PPE solutions have taken off in the 21st century. Vended products help customers reduce waste and provide lots of consumption data for purchasing managers. So, it is no surprise that vending options have taken off with industrial customers.

360° Customer Hazard Assessment

 

 

 

MCR Safety has over 40 years of experience as a leader in the field of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). We have dedicated safety professionals committed to engaging at industrial workplaces to demonstrate our products, provide training, and extend our 360° Protection Program.

This holistic investigation into your PPE and safety needs follows a five-step program:

 

1. Evaluation

This qualitative information gathering involves meetings with stakeholders and a safety walk through the actual work environment. We assess the applications performed and PPE used in keeping workers safe.


Example from an actual 360 assessment



2. Measurement

This step involves gathering quantitative data, including information on injuries, current costs, and product lifecycles.


Example from an actual 360 assessment

3. Analysis

During the analysis stage, we take all of that qualitative and quantitative data and examine it to figure out where you can best improve your safety program to reduce injuries, while also helping your bottom line.


Example from an actual 360 assessment

4. Execution

This step involves implementing the recommended changes, including making sure workers are correctly fitted and trained with their new PPE.

 

5. Protection

This step is ongoing, as we follow up with you to check on the improved safety measures and address any new concerns as they arise.

Of course, all of this starts with step 0, the decision to schedule your visit. This is perhaps the most important step, and the only one that you need to take on your own. This is when you decide that creating a safer work environment is important to you.

 

360 Hazard Assessment

This program is now offered in an entirely VIRTUAL option! Our dedicated safety professionals are committed to using our 5-step hazard assessment program in a virtual manner to reduce injuries, provide more excellent protection, and improve overall productivity.

Hear From You

 


Innovations Technology Center (ITC Lab) 

 

Any company can sell a cut-resistant glove. However, the question you should be asking is, has it passed the quality management testing process of an ISO 17025 laboratory, which validates established performance levels? Neither OSHA nor any government agency audits these tests, so it's up to the purchaser to determine testing accuracy.

At MCR Safety, we don't expect you to put your life on the line based on third-hand promises of protection, so we test our products ourselves, and we offer free testing for our customers. Our Innovations Technology Center (ITC Lab) has been in operation since 2010, testing PPE for cut, abrasion, heat, puncture, impact, and tear resistance.  

The three objectives at the forefront of the ITC lab development are:

  1. Increase our ability to monitor the quality of incoming products produced at our factories.

  2.  Utilize the in-house testing laboratory to increase Research and Development of new products and technologies.

  3.  Ensure that in-market comparisons between MCR Safety products and competitor products are viable. In other words, we want to ensure we are comparing apples-to-apples and not apples-to-oranges.

In July of 2016, our commitment to excellence led to the ITC becoming one of the first North American testing labs to receive ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation for Hand Protection. It's an international standard that requires companies to demonstrate a high degree of accuracy and consistency in testing protective equipment.  MCR Safety takes pride in being one of the few accredited testing laboratories in the world. Laboratories accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard have demonstrated they are technically competent, meaning they can produce precise, reliable, and accurate test data.

*All testing performed for MCR Safety distributors is done free of charge.
