The London Marathon Charity T-Shirts

Last weekend we watched over 40,000 people from all over the world run the London Marathon. A lot of people run it in the name of their chosen charity and Tom is no exception. Tom was running in the memory of his Uncle Dean, who sadly lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer. The London Marathon is quite often a family affair with lots of people either running together or travelling down to support their loved ones. In Tom’s case, he had his own little army of family and supporters, all of which wore their t-shirts with pride, while watching him smash the course.

As well as the many charity running vests we make every year, we also  print many names on running vests for participants as well as t-shirts for those going down to cheer them on. Tom’s army can be seen below all in t-shirts supporting Pancreatic Cancer UK, all in memory of Dean. Thank you to his mum Gillian for the fantastic photos.

If you are looking for charity running vests, or t-shirts to show your support to those running, please get in touch either by emailing or by giving us a call on 02476 694466

What’s New in 2019?

Launching Our New Fruit of the Loom T-Shirt Range

New year, new lines! To get 2019 started with a bang, we have added a brand new t-shirt range to our collection. Made by Fruit of the Loom, these t-shirts are entirely brandable and do not even have a Fruit of the Loom logo on the inner label.

Why is this important? Whether you are trying to create brand awareness, increase your customer’s loyalty, or heighten staff morale, having a completely branded t-shirt is key. It demonstrates that you are capable of producing your own merchandise and shows a sense of pride in the brand.

The t-shirts are offered in marl and fleck effects and in various colours, making them attractive and modern. Produced in soft, comfortable fabrics, these t-shirts are suitable for your staff or as giveaways to your loyal customers.

We Still Do Motorwear Best!

We finished 2018 by doing some fantastic motorsport designs – featuring MHR Teamwear’s logo, as well as their sponsor’s logos. The features jackets can be found using product code 3607.

How to Choose the Material for Your T-shirt.

t shirt coloursIt is important to choose the t-shirt you want to personalise based on what the t-shirt is made from, and what kind of material is most appropriate. Different fabrics have different benefits for them.

100% Cotton is extremely breathable and transmits moisture away from the body keeping you dryer and cooler. Cotton is also hypoallergenic and does not irritate the skin. Cotton is a great choice for your personalisation because it is extremely durable and perfect for the majority of wearers.

100% Polyester is also another type of material that is frequently used in t-shirts. Polyester is a synthetic man-made material, it is often a much cheaper option to source in comparison to Cotton. Polyester is a very strong but flexible material and the fabric is quick drying too. Polyester is an excellent choice as the material for your t-shirt as it is inexpensive and resists shrinking and wrinkling as well.

However, most of the time manufacturers will often combine materials to make the most of each material’s qualities. Depending on how stretchy you want your t-shirt too manufacturers often add a small percentage of elastane to the material, this offers a skin tight and very stretchy effect.

Choosing the right material for you should really be based on what the t-shirt is intended to be. If you’re looking for a sporty top then a Polyester blend may be preferred but if you’re after a more comfortable and breathable top then Cotton is the choice for you.

If you need any help in deciding which t-shirt is best for you then contact us now on our freephone number 0800 0190 552.

You can also contact us on Facebook and we will try to respond as quickly as possible.
