Church T-Shirts Printed

Church and cars go together?

You probably realise that Acorn Printing likes its motorsport.

So when we got asked to print some t-shirts for a group providing ambassador services at the recent Coventry Motofest naturally we jumped at the chance.

What made it all the better was that the group in question are members of Coventry’s Jubilee Church, based not too far from us.

The picture we have of the t-shirts shows that our products are put to good use – no colour runs for our garments.

So whatever events your church, mosque or temple are getting involved in Acorn can get you togged up.

All you need to do is choose from our massive selection of brands, styles, colours and sizes and build up your quote.  We stock women’s, men’s and children’s garments to make sure everybody is comfortable.  You can personalise your t-shirts with print or embroidery to add the names, logos and messages you require.

If you have any questions or need help with designs just call us on freephone 0800 0190552 or email

Once a Wasp Always a Wasp

Wasps Make a Beeline for Acorn

The arrival of Wasps RFC at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena has certainly created a bit of a stir around the city.

It’s also created a bit of a stir at Acorn as the club have chosen us to provide a wide range of printed and embroidered garments for its promotional activity.

We were particularly pleased with this recent t-shirt run because we managed to get such sharp detail that you can see the blades of grass on the pitch.

Wasps promotional t-shirts printed

Embroidered promotional scarves

Sometimes it pays to be a bit different. Have you considered a scarf for your next promotional campaign?

Embroidered logo on a heavy duty promotional scarfActually we provide a pretty complete range of promotional items that can be personalised to suit any occasion. However when the 750 Motor Club, whose competitions the Acorn Printing car is racing in, said they needed something a little different, well we came up with a scarf.

Picture the image of a dashing racing driver or even a fighter pilot of the 1930’s or 40’s.  Their simple overalls or uniforms and helmets were always supplemented by a jaunty scarf fluttering in the breeze. Or perhaps we have been watching too many old films.

Anyway the 750 Motor Club liked the idea so much that they placed an order for several hundred scarves with the club logo expertly embroidered on them.

Our embroidered machines did a great job of capturing the logo with that unique embossed effect, which stand out rather nicely we think you will agree.

Damsels in distress – It’s The Wolf

Could Acorn get the ladies to the race on time?

It was just one of those ordinary Fridays.  Plenty of orders going through and not too much to report. Then all hell breaks loose.

in Leamington Spa are on the phone, with a problem.  They are competing in the renown Wolf Run wild running event at the weekend, but the people who were due to provide them with personalised running shirts has let them down.  Can Acorn get them out of a hole?

Team-Esque persoanlised t-shirt design

First thing to find out is what they need.  Apparently black, long sleeve t-shirts will look fab (we have to be somewhat fashion conscious for a beauty salon) and fortunately our well provided stock room means we have those to hand.

Then the artwork.  Well we can help by using the style of the existing logo and creating striking image with bold Team Esqué lettering to let the other competitors know who they are up against.

Finally can we get the garments printed and delivered on time? Well this is where our investments in clever printing equipment comes in.  It’s so easy to set up print jobs that we just bump a less urgent job off the run and make Esqué the priority.  And as for delivery – well it’s a pleasure (and not too far) to make this one a personal drop-off.

Now it’s over to you girls.

Team Esque Wolf Run teesPostscript: Months, or possibly weeks, of training clearly paid off. The whole Esqué team finished the gruelling Wolf Run and raised a shed load of money for Cancer Research in the process.

It’s a matter of opinion whether the running shirts look better clean or caked in mud.

Unusual client requests. Medieval board game.

We do get asked to print some interesting things.  How about an authentic historic dice board?

Unusual printing request. Medieval dice board gameWe really like printing t-shirts and hoodies, and embroidering polo shirts and caps.  However it does make our day even more interesting when we get special requests.

Gothic Green Oak certainly posed an interesting challenge for us when they asked if we could print a “House of Fortune” dice game layout onto a cloth to create an authentic playing surface.

Apparently “House of Fortune” dates back to medieval times where it became popular in taverns. One of the attractions is that it is easy to learn and play, thus not distracting too much from the serious business of drinking.

Acorn’s design and operational teams put their heads together to locate the appropriate material and work out how to print the design to replicate, as far as possible, a hand written style.  The fruits of our labour were gratefully received by our client and now form part of the company’s portfolio.

Gothic Green Oak specialises in authentic historic games for museums, re-enactment and simply to play. The company thoroughly researches the  games and then ensures they are constructed in the closest possible way to the originals. Gothic Green Oak make games covering the Roman, Viking and Anglo-Saxon periods, Early to Late Medieval, Tudor, Civil War up to Napoleonic times.  It’s worth having a look at their website just to see the many varieties of games on offer and the interesting designs and rules that go with them.

Acorn has a range of specialist print machines and processes to meet your needs, however diverse.  We can also source a huge variety of materials to cater for any eventuality.
