We are also able to print or transfer individual names on the reverse of garments. A minimum order of 10 garments is required and garments must bear the same print colour. A one-off origination cost of £10+VAT, per order for print or transfer applies.

Minimum order of 10 garments required. Garments must bear the same design. Price is inclusive of one free personalised printed back design only, however, an additional left chest logo can be added for a cost of £1.75+VAT for an embroidery or transfer and £1.00+VAT for a printed logo. Leavers designs are printed in either black or white ink, other colours are available on request - one print colour per 10 garments. Leavers - please allow up to 3 weeks delivery from approval of your design. We aim to get your design to you within 7-10 days from receipt of your list of names. Accuracy is key to minimising the number of changes which can delay your approval. If you have any questions or queries please ask! Non-stock Event designs will be subject to an additional origination charge of £10+VAT.

VAT Legislation

VAT legislation states that garments in adult sizes are subject to VAT irrespective of whether they are supplied to a child or an adult. In the case of school uniform bearing a school logo, the adult size garment is still subject to VAT unless the school caters exclusively for children below 14 years of age.

Garment sizes subject to VAT are marked * on the Price List.
