Printwear & Promotion Trade Show

Printwear Trade Show NEC Pencarrie stand

We made the trip to the Birmingham NEC this week for the annual Printwear & Promotion trade show.

All of our favourite brands and suppliers were there to exhibit the latest products in the industry. Sustainability was the theme of this year’s show. This means brands are producing clothing as ethically as possible with as little negative effect on the environment as possible. Above all, garment quality does not suffer. Contrarily, it seems to be improving.
No company is leading the charge more than Mantis. All of their styles, adult, child and baby, have made the switch to ethically sourced and sustainable materials.
You can design your own organic T-shirt made by Mantis here.

Why we attend

The aim of trade shows is for brands and suppliers to exhibit their products to new customers and to exhibit new products to existing customers.
Since last year’s visit in 2019 Teepig have started offering sublimation printed garments which has very effectively aided what we can offer our customers. We are always looking to improve and add better services to give you exactly what you want.
After this recent visit to the Printwear and Promotion trade show we have come away with a far greater knowledge of garment types and styles. This information we can pass on to you too help you select the best brands and styles for your customised garments.

Tee Jays was a big player this year. In fact several other stands were using Tee Jays T-shirts in their demonstrations. The Danish company produces higher end styles. For example T-shirt, polos, hoodies, soft shell jackets and coats. Tee Jays are also making the switch to organic this year and their new colour ways are already organic certified.
We are adding more Tee Jays styles to our designer page. This is the choice brand for best quality, whether it’s to decorate with your own brand or logo or as a special gift.

Next Level is another impressive brand which we are adding to our designer. Based in LA, Next Level offer something slightly different. Keep an eye out for their ‘sueded’ range. The styles have peached fabric making it super soft to the touch.

If you want to know more about the garments we can decorate for you please get in contact.

Printwear Live 2019

The chaps from Teepig visited the Birmingham N.E.C. this week to have a mosey around the industry’s leading providers at the Printwear Live tradeshow.
We were on the lookout for products of both garments and machinery that can make our service even better. What we found was just that.
Variety of offerings is really going to help us at this early stage of establishment and having a knowledge of what garments and processes are right for any particular order.
We learned what products would be ideal to use for customers looking to establish their own unique brand. For fashion conscious brands the latest trends of garments were on display and available. These include Ralawise’s ‘Build a Brand’ range and BTC Activewear’s ‘SG’ and ‘Nakedshirt’ range.
All coming tagless and to be branded by you, or us, as we’ll do it for you so you can design and market and Teepig will produce.
Perhaps you only want a single T-shirt or small quantity of garments for yourself and your friends. The variety is all there from original, high quality garment manufacturers like Bella & Canvas to your value solutions like Fruit of the Loom and Gildan – both still offering great quality at the best prices. For stag and hen parties, community events and casual workwear Fruit of the Loom and Gildan can’t be beaten for value on customised T-shirts, hoodies and sweaters. They both offer soft feel, ring spun T-shirts in light, regular and heavy gsm.
When it comes to customised bags Bagbase has a great range to offer from school, professional, recreational and outdoor. Beechfield offer a wide range of hats and caps that can be decorated either by sublimation or embroidery with your own custom design or logo.
As we develop you will see more and more variety appear on our ‘design your own’ page.
If there’s something you want and you can’t see it drop us an email on the contact page with your requirements or suggestion and we’ll do what we can to help you get your custom wear.
