F.A. regulations state sponsorship should not exceed 34” Sq.


Choose from full or single colour. Size should not exceed 34 squared inches.

Using quality embroidery we reproduce any logo to a superb standard using high quality Madeira cottons. Any shade or pantone can be matched proving a cost effective way to customise your sportswear. A one off fee will be charged to set up your embroidered badge/logo as we have to convert your artwork into a digitalised format.

We will contact you after your order has been placed to go through your requirements and get the order processed. 

Aftercare and Wash Instructions

Always follow the wash care label to avoid shrinkage and to avoid colours running. If kit has printing/embroidery, turn inside out before washing. Do not iron any printing directly as heat can damage the print. Care for kit promptly. The sooner you pre-treat and launder stained clothes, the better the results will be. Don’t allow mud or stains to set. Do not leave wet or dirty kit in gym bags, where smells and permanent stains can develop. If a stain is not removed in washing:

  • Do not dry a garment until the stain is removed because heat will set the stain. Once stain is removed launder as usual.
  • Soak the stain in a pre-wash. Sensitive stains should be rinsed in cold water and then washed with a non-chlorine bleach product. In the case of severe staining it may be necessary to apply a stain remover directly to the affected area and wash again. Apply undiluted laundry detergent with a bleach alternative.
  • Any branded rain/windbreaker jackets with water repellent coating that have been decorated with transfers or sponsors must be sponge washed ONLY. Do not clean using a washing machine or dry in a tumble drier.

Always read the care instructions as these may differ between items
