Don't forget that your logo or business name looks great embroidered on to any garment and can be added quickly, at a low cost and is a great way to promote your business and build customers loyalty. Ask us about how we can help or visit our embroidery section for further information.

Embroidered garments

Stand out from the crowd and get your message across by adding embroidery to your garments. Our state of the art embroidery facility means adding your logo or message to your garment is quick and cost effective. Your brand and business will benefit from increased exposure and a heightened profile. It also helps to promote a sense of pride within the wearer and help promote customer and staff loyalty.

We charge a 'one off' logo origination or set up charge of £25 and once your logo is on file it can be applied to any garment as and when you require it. Names or text in a standard font can be applied without a set up charge. We can offer generous discounts for volume orders.
