There are different types of collar stays, which come in different styles and designs. The most preferred is the engraved stay, which can be customized to your ideal taste. However, whether a stay is engraved or not, it should fit into your collar and bring out that preferred look on you. Without a stay, your shirt collar will be prone to wrinkles and this can be the cause of ruin of your chances to pass a job interview.
The most important aspect of an engraved stay is that it can have your name or your preferred initials decorated onto it. This brings in the personalization aspect when you are shopping for cloth accessories. It is also an ideal gift as you can engrave someone’s name and then present it to them. For businesses, you can engrave your company’s name or logo on the stays of your staff. With engraved stays, you can also have a special message and award workers, or give as a gift to someone else.
Engraved stays have become very popular with white collar working men as they are able to conceal the top part of their ties beneath the collars. The stays can be made of plastic, brass, metal or stainless steel. In most cases, the manufactures do not charge for the engraved print or design of the stay. However, if they charge, it is usually at an affordable fee.
Before purchasing the stays, it is advisable to compare the prices of the engraved stays at different stores. It is important to shop from renowned shops so as to get quality stays at reasonable prices. You can also get a variety, which is essential as you can wear in different occasions, be it casual or official, and still maintain a presentable appearance.
It is also advisable to consider other options like the plain engraved stays, which are cheaper. Plastic stays are also cheap but engraving them is not as smooth a process as with other stays. The engraved stays demand that you remove them when washing and ironing your shirt. You should then keep them secured so that you can easily find them afterwards to return them back to the collar.
