Claire contacted us wanting to place an express printing order that needed to be printed and shipped out in 2 days. The order consisted of screen printed work uniforms and screen printed workwear for all the food vendors around Stamford Bridge stadium in London. In total, they needed 150 black printed t-shirts with 6 different designs, one for each of their different food outlets. They also required that the t-shirt was of a good quality as well as a durable print so there was no margin for error with this order.
This job also presented another challenge as the client needed to see a printed sample of each printed t-shirt before she went ahead. We always recommend producing Printed Samples and if time and budget allows we will send a physical printed sample to you for approval. We have an alternative option however, we can send a high quality photograph of a printed t-shirt for your approval, to speed up the process. This is what we did, and the express order exceeded the clients expectations…another happy client…another happy day!!!
We advised and our client agreed to Screen Printing., as it gives a top quality print and is very durable in the wash, which is essential for printed work wear. We chose the Gildan GD01 t-shirt because of its price, colour range and quality. As the client wanted a sample, we came up with a solution that was risky but effective. It required a team effort from the entire chain of production – from the sales team right through to the production line! As each design went to print, the production team took a photograph of the first print to come off and paused production. This was then emailed to the client who approved each one before we continued. The challenge here was that once production has started, it’s difficult and costly to stop the machines, so the time window was literally 5 minutes. The client was on call to receive and approve each photo as they came through and it worked very smoothly. To find our more, check our Screen Printing Video.
