Fair Trade for Freshers

Fair Trade T-Shirts


Acorn printing has always been committed to creating not just sustainable clothing but a sustainable lifestyle for those who manufacture the raw material used in our garments.

Not only does fair-trade help those who create the clothing but it also creates a low carbon footprint making our T-shirts environmentally friendly too.

However just because our T-shirts are environmentally friendly it doesn’t mean they cost the Earth. Our T-shirts start from as little as £3.30 which is great for University students who want to try something fun for fresher’s week.

Our personalised T-shirts can be printed or embroidered with names, logos and images in large quantities for low prices.

All of our T-shirts can be made to create a great (and lasting) impression with your fellow students. If you’re after something different we can offer v neck, Baseball, Long Sleeve, Sleeveless and Performance T-shirts. If you want to bring your own that’s fine too!

All Over Printing

Want Your Design to Cover the Entire Garment?

Choose sublimation for an all over print

You have probably seen people sporting polo shirts and t-shirts that seem to have a great design printed all over them.  And you have probably wondered “How did they do that?”

The answer is “Dye Sublimation”, sometimes called “All Over Printing”.

The example shown below is a polo shirt we created for the British Miniature Pylon Racing Association’s Team who are competing in the world championships in Sweden this month.

All over printing - Dye sublimation printing for the ultimate in personalised garments. T-shirts and polo shirts

With sublimation printing every single part of the garment can be specially printed including the sleeves, collar and the placket (the area around the buttons).

It’s the ultimate in customisation that could really set you apart from crowd.  Acorn can help whether you’re are a team in competition, a business at an exhibition or just somebody who wants the best for a club, charity or social group.

Talk to Acorn Printing today to discuss your design ideas so we can give you a quote.
