Wrapping Up Another Exciting Order

Occasionally, we like to showcase some of our recent work on the blog, because we are proud of our work, our expertise and believe that we are the best in the printing and embroidery market.

We recently worked with the Women Riders World Relay group, producing the merchandise which they sell to their members.

We were hired to produce badges, t-shirts and hoodies – key elements to a biker group membership.

Our Work


The group went for a classic, stylish black pullover hoodie, with a pocket at the front and their logo in white detail. On the reverse, the logo is featured alongside their slogan and hashtag.


These ladies t-shirts have an attractive, fitted shape and feature the logo, slogan and hashtag, as with the hoodie.

Embroidered Patches

For those ladies who like to wear their patches with pride, we produced these fabulous embroidered patches.

If you would like to order branded goods for your own company, social group, or sports group, Acorn is happy to both design and print your branding on your chosen items.

To begin your order, please call our freephone number: 0800 0190 552 or email us at Sales@acorn-printing.co.uk to get the ball rolling.

New Laser Engraving Machine Coming to Acorn Printing

At Acorn Printing we are excited to announce that we are diversifying our product and service range to include the engraving of glass, trophies, and other small products.

We are offering this service for small runs only, so if you have a low quantity of goods to be engraved, we are perfect for the job.

What Can a Laser Engraving Machine Do?

Laser engraving Machines use a laser beam to change the surface of an object. This process is mostly used to create images on the material, that may be seen at eye level.

This process does not use ink but alters the surface of the object’s material to create the desired pattern, logo, text or effect through a laser beam.

The laser part of the machine looks similar to a pencil, and it is this part of the machinery that makes it perfect for marking intricate details on to your products.

What Can I Get Engraved?

Whether its a one-off gift for someone that you would like to personalise, or whether you need to order several prize trophies for a sports club, we are perfect for completing these types of jobs.

We are happy to give tailored advice and guidance on when, where and how to approach engraving products and can be reached on our contact number: 0800 0190 552

How Should I Begin My Order?

While this service isn’t being directly pushed through the website yet, we are happy to take pre-orders of your engraved goods and these can be discussed with our fantastic sales team.

To get in touch, either call 0800 0190 552 or email us on Sales@acorn-printing.co.uk

The Importance of Hi-Vis for Riding on the Road

Personalised horse riding and hacking gear. Printing and embroidery

Why Should Riders Wear High Vis?

The British Horse Society reports that in an eight-year period, 38 riders and 222 horses have been killed on British roads in horse-related car accidents.

80% of these accidents are avoidable because drivers are traveling too fast or too close to horses, or both. Yet there is still a staggering 20% of accidents that are caused by riders not making themselves visually prominent on the road.

With so many Hi-Vis items available for horse and rider, from gilets to hat bands and Hi-Vis exercise sheets to fluorescent brush boots – there really is no excuse to not be visible on the road.

It’s also imperative that riders and drivers of all ages are made aware of the highway code where horses are concerned. Best practice is to drive past horses as widely as possible and at a maximum of 15mph.

How Can Acorn Jazz Up Your Riding Gear?

Acorn has a wide range of hi-vis jackets, gilets and fleeces to help you stay safe when you’re hacking out on the road. We can personalise your jackets with your message (e.g. SLOW), your yard name, your own name, anything you like.

One of our favourite pieces is the Kensington hi-vis jacket.  Available in five different colours, this jacket is actually part of our workwear range – a durable piece of outwear for hacking in the variable British weather conditions.

Acorn can personalise this jacket with your choice of print or embroidery.  That makes it a super choice for riding schools, equestrian teams and competing stables.

Have a look at the jacket on our website today and spend a bit of time browsing both our hi-vis, jackets, fleeces and gilets collections.

If you need any help finding a suitable garment or sorting out a design just get in touch.  Simply call freephone 0800 0190 552 or email sales@acorn-printing.co.uk today.

Is Vegan Clothing Going to Take Off?

What is Vegan Clothing?

Vegan clothing is known to be the production of clothing whereby there is no cost or compromise to animals lives or wellbeing.

With the vegan food industry rapidly blowing up in the past 24 months, it is a reasonable question to ask.

Who is Heading this Movement?

Andras Forgacs is the CEO of a start-up brand that creates a vegan alternative to leather. Modern Meadow, who has been creating small quantities of these fabrics for over 8 years, is launching his first full selection of products later this year.

Andras claims that when cows and crocodiles are used to create leather goods, between 50-90% of the animal is wasted due to a pattern or skin imperfection.

He aims to revolutionise the £153 billion leather industry, which is no small feat!

Backing the optimism of changes to the leather industry is business consulting firm Grand View Research. GVR has predicted the global faux leather market will hit $85bn by 2025.

It cites the lower cost of producing animal-free products along with the increasing number of consumers opting for animal-free materials.

Is Vegan Fashion Eco-Friendly?

There’s a tendency for shoppers to assume ‘vegan’ covers all their ethical bases, but it’s a little more complicated than that.

It is argued that vegan fashion tends to put the wellbeing of animals over that of the artisans and farmers who provide the non-vegan materials.

Some vegan fashion pieces are not built to the same standard of lasting quality, nor with materials that will age well, shortening their life span and raising yet more questions about what defines true sustainability.

The Verdict

The verdict is still out for vegan fashion and whether or not it will take off and supersede fashion and clothing as we know it, remains to be seen.

A happy medium must be met between animal welfare, the environment and the durability of our clothes.

Why Personalised Gilets Are So Popular

Why Are Gilets are Pipping Jackets to the Post?

At Acorn Printing, we sell lots of personalised hoodies, jackets, and coats to corporations who have staff working outdoors or in cold environments.

While all of these clothing items serve their purpose, there can be one major hang up. Thick sleeves and padding around the arm and shoulder area can limit physical movement, and even increase the likelihood of accidents occurring.

If your staff are carrying heavy goods, equipment or tools, having the freedom of movement that a gilet provides can be imperative.

How to Personalise Your Gilets

The key advantage of gilets is that you benefit from both the warmth and insulation that the body of the garment provides, and you have much more flexibility in the arm and shoulder area.

Gilets can be very smart and have been popular historically for wearing during country events such as horse shows and shooting. Our contemporary range of gilets extends beyond these styles of gilet, and are an attractive choice for corporate workwear.

We are able to personalise gilets with your business or group logo, name or message on the:

  • Left Breast
  • Right Breast
  • Centre Back
  • Nape of Neck
  • Back

And offer exquisite embroidery services. These are perfect for a team, your staff, or even as giveaways to your best customers.

With Acorn Printing, the more items you purchase, the lower the price of each individual item gets, meaning that you will get the best value for your money.
