Here are some tips for creating a new sports kit:

Tip 1: Make sure the printing company has your team colours

When you choose a company to print your personalised team shirts, the first thing you want to check is the variety of colours they offer! When you play a team sport, one of the most important aspects of the kit is the colour! Your team colours are super important, so you want to ensure your new kit will be colour matched perfectly. Luckily – here at Garment Printing we have amazing printing technology that allows you to pantone match your colours and team logos – so it’s always a perfect match. 

Tip 2: Make sure a variety of sizes are available 

Not everyone on your sports team will be the same size and shape – and not everyone will want the same fit either. The key to a really successful kit, is making sure everyone on the team feels comfortable and confident wearing it – so making sure you can order a variety of different sizes is really important. Some people may want to wear theirs a little more baggy, or tight fitting, for example. Checking there are are lots of different sizes available in your selected kit will save any awkward moments later on. Here at Garment Fitting we have lots of sizing choices, and we have different styles to fit different body types too. 

Tip 3: Don’t forget all the extras and accessories 

A new sports kit isn’t just about a new printed shirt or jersey. It’s about the whole look! A kit is the whole finished look – so make sure you remember to order all the other bits and bobs to finish the look. Think about matching shorts, or matching joggers, matching socks, hats, gloves (depending on which sport your team plays). You can have a lot of fun with all the added extras, and it’s these little extras that really make the kit look amazing. 

Tip 4: Don’t forget a branded bag / holdall 

Once you have your amazing new sports kit, you’ll want to make sure everyone looks after it! A team holdall, or sports bag can really be the perfect finishing touch to make sure everyone takes care of their new kits. You can choose a sports holdall in your team colours, and even get your team logo printed on it too – so you’ll look great when you arrive at games/matches. 

Tip 5: Ask your team what they’d like to wear 

When you’re designing a new sports kit for a team of people, it can be tempting to design whatever you think works best. But it’s actually a great idea to check in with your team and see if there’s any design details they like, or if they have any input for the new kit. They will be the ones wearing it – so it’s good to ask if they have any preferences or ideas!
