Do you need something hemmed? 

Here at VTR Uniforms, we know that not everything fits perfectly, right off the rack. Luckily for us, that is no problem at all! If you have purchased a pair of pants, pyjamas, a jacket, a long-sleeved shirt or a sweater from us or anywhere else that may fit a little long, our in-house seamstress Marie will be happy to hem them to your size!

Turn long-sleeved shirts into short-sleeved, pants into capris and shorts! For a small fee it simply isn't worth it to wear clothes that don't fit or pass up on that perfect dress over a minor issue like hemming.  

Do you need a patch designed or sewn on?

Whether you have had a patch designed by our graphic designer Trevor, embroidered by our in-house embroiderer Kim, or have purchased a patch elsewhere, there are no limits as to what we can do! If you have a vision of what you'd like your finished product to look like, but are too nervous to apply the patch yourself, leave it to us - the experts, to achieve your end goal.

Depending on the patch you need applied, variations include sew-on or iron-on, and can be applied to a wide selection of fabrics. So if you have an existing sweater with an old logo that you don't wear anymore, let us cover it up with a brand new patch! Likewise, if you have a brand new leather jacket that is missing out on some flair, bring in your patches and let us customize it to your tastes. When it comes to your clothes, let your patches speak for you! 

Do you need a zipper repaired or button replaced? 

Ah, the indestructible zipper.. or so we thought. Zippers haven't changed much since they were first invented, and neither have the problems we all have with them. From stuck zippers that feel like they are caught on something, to teeth that just won't clinch, VTR Uniforms will save you from being stuck inside your jacket. Simply drop off your item of clothing, and let us handle the rest.

Note: For a zipper to be replaced, the tape must have an end. Two-way closed-ended zip fasteners that are closed on either end and are commonly found on luggage, laptop cases and purses cannot be replaced at VTR. To see what kind of zipper you have before placing your order, click here.

Do you need reflective tape added to a garment to ensure your safety? 

Well look no further, we've got you covered! Many work places require their employees to wear high visibility (or hi-viz) articles of clothing while at work. So what does high-visibility mean? High-visibility (HV) clothing, a type of personal protective equipment (PPE), is any clothing worn that has highly reflective properties or a colour that is easily discernible from any background. The sun's ultraviolet rays react with the fluorescent colours to make them appear to glowm increasing daytime visibility. The effect is stronger in poor light conditions such as in fog or towards dusk

While VTR Uniforms sells many different types of high visibility wear, some workers are given the chance to purchase workwear of their choice, with the option of adding reflective properties to clothing that don't already have it. In this case, there are two kinds of reflective taping that can be added to these pieces. VTR Uniforms offers both 2 inch silver Night tape, as well as 4 inch yellow/silver Day/Night tape.
