I could not be happier with my new branded shirts and polos. I didn’t have to do a thing. Advance Printwear took care of the modifications to my logo and embroidered them excellently. I didn’t want to spend time browsing through all of the options so I relied on their 25 years+ of experience and quite literally, couldn’t have chosen better myself.
I needed my winter workwear supplying and with my company logo on it. Got my Tshirts, Hoodies & Wind Stopper from the guys. Great product & service.
I've used Advance Print Wear on numerous occasions for various quantities of printed clothing and they have never let me down. Always very prompt service, competitively priced and excellent quality. I would highly recommend Gary and the team for any printed merchandise.
Absolutely delighted with the service and quality of our new winter training tops and hats for our football team, so much so i've recommended Advance Printwear to the whole of our club and others who have commented on the quality. Having had previous bad experiences with another supplier, Advance Printwear really have impressed us and we will certainly be using them again for all our kit items.
Gary and the team were extremely helpful in choosing colours, and implementing designs for my new workwear. Good quality kit, great service, and a reasonable price. What else could you ask for? Will be happy to use them again.
