PERSONALISED T-SHIRTS HELP BRIXTON FIGHTBACK RAISE FUNDING AND AWARENESS
Brixton Buzz was created in December 2011 and is an organisation that publishes hundreds of listings for events in and around Brixton every month in addition to covering local news, sports and politics. They also hold regular events in and around London to raise funding and awareness for people in need. As an example, in the past they’ve put together big benefit concerts to try and raise funds for Brixton people fighting to keep their homes.
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.
