The New Forest Marathon is designed to revitalise and raise the profile of marathons as a way of inspiring as many people as possible to take part in physical activity. This helps to lower levels of inactivity and helps to improve the health of the entire community.
They provide a sustainable platform which helps to raise money and awareness of local good causes through their New Forest Marathon community funding project and they use the marathon as a way of helping as many people, organisations and businesses as possible.
The New Forest Marathon director, Andy Daish, contacted Garment Printing after their original T-Shirt supplier had let them down just days before their next event. It was Thursday, September 23rd and they required 5,000 printed T-Shirts before their event began on the following weekend. This meant that we had an incredibly tight turnaround time with a high number of printed garments required.
Originally, the client requested that all 5,000 T-Shirts were printed with four colours on the front and the back of the sports jersey, but with such a tight deadline, this simply wasn’t possible.
We contacted Mr Daish and within a couple of minutes we had come up with a solution of printing the sports tops with a two colour print on both the front and the back. The T-Shirts were white so this meant that we didn’t have to go through a pre-treatment process and this meant that we could have all the T-Shirts printed and delivered just before the event.
Once the customer confirmed the order, it was instantly sent to our printing location to ensure that there was no time wasted. We managed to get all of the garments printed and sent to the customer using Express Delivery and the customer received the entire, completed order with two days still to spare.
After the marathon had finished, we were again contacted by Andy and he sent us this message:
“A professional and efficient company which delivers on time and on budget. Garment Printing were absolute lifesavers when we were let down by another T-Shirt supplier at a very short notice.
“The team at Garment Printing designed, created and delivered within days, creating a fantastic product which our customers loved!”
