1. Vend-Ready SolutionsImage result for pip vend ready

We have all visited a vending machine to satisfy that need for a quick snack on the job to get us to lunch or even the end of the day. PIP® is making it easier on the employee and the company to be able to grab that necessary pair of gloves or safety equipment to get the job done safely and efficiently. With multiple vending locations and product selection control, it will be easier to grab personal protection equipment that is right for the job with less downtime. PIP® also makes it easier to order and get those vend-ready products by selecting the vending format that is best for your machine. Select from a fold and have them rubber banded, sealed in a plastic bag, shrink wrapped, or sock folded. Individual packaging reduces space consumption in most machines or on a hook. You can choose from:
  • Shrink-Wrapped Gloves - Product is tri-folded and shrink-wrapped for carefree dispensing
  • Folded Pair Bag Gloves - Pair packed bags keep products clean with no loose edges or rubber bands and have easy-to-read labels that make identifying the product and size easier.
  • Customized Glove and Sleeve Solutions - All of PIP® bulk gloves and sleeves can be Vend-Packed at special request using Made-to-Order services, and offer 4 options
    • Folded and Rubber Banded

2. Custom Logo Imprinting

Logo Imprinting is just one of the custom services that PIP® is proud to offer. With a 6-day turnaround time, the PIP® design team's work is fast, easy, and precise. Logo proofs can be turned around in as little as 24 hours after the request is submitted (depending on the format). Their recently expanded production capacity also allows them to keep delivering fast turnaround times, even as orders continue to increase.
  • Pad Printing is an indirect offset printing process that allows the image to be transferred from the printing plate via a silicone pad onto the product, and can be ideal for imprinting 3-D objects. For this method of imprinting, and depending on the product, you can select up to four of the twelve readily-available colors.
  • Heat Transfer is a printing process that involves the image being printed on transfer paper and then applied to the product using heat. This method is available in up to four of twelve readily-available PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors and allows for better detail with the multiple colors selected.
  • Screen Printing is a method that uses only screens to print the image directly onto the chosen product. It works only for clothing and is available in up to four of twelve readily-available PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors.
  • Embroidery is a higher quality imprint option that is available in up to nine of sixteen readily-available PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors. All pricing is custom quoted based on stitch count and lead times may vary based on quantity. This option is also only available for clothing and bump caps.
The Pantone® Matching System is a color matching system to keep consistent color across all printing processes. PIP® offers select stock colors based on the ones that are most commonly ordered, and you can select the closest stocked pantone colors to your colors for no additional charges. If you want an exact color match, a Pantone® color match can be selected and custom mixed for your order, and does involve additional charges. You can download PIP's custom order request forms below.

  • - .ai (Adobe Illustrator)

3. Made-to-Order Knit Protective Sleeves

Made to order sleeve protectors or arm covers put the customer in control of what they are ordering for their specific needs. Protective sleeves are already designed to help prevent abrasions and scrapes, but PIP® wants to help enhance your safety and protection by offering specific solutions to specific applications, such as Cut Protection, Heat Protection, Arc Flash Protection, Food Handling, and General Purpose. Once the safety need is identified, the solution can be customized by choosing the material, size, and other options that are available to enhance and maximize performance. In three easy steps, you can have sleeves that fit you comfortably and protect you from the dangers of your job.
  1. Select a Sereis - PIP® offers different series of materials that you can choose from to get the best arm protection for you. Kevlar, Dyneema, Cotton,  and Pritex are just a few of the available options to choose from.
  2. Pick a length - PIP® Sleeves are available in any of the following lengths: 10", 12", 14", 16", 18", 20", 22", ans 24"
  3. Customize Your Sleeve - PIP® lets you choose from a variety of options for the finger and thumb, and top of the arm to ensure the sleeve stays in place as consistently as possible.
