    Ok so went into a workwear shop to get myself some jumpers and polos... Well, she told me it will cost £50+ vat just to set it up to be able to do my logo?? Then after it is £18 per jumper and £12 per polo.. So £78 for my first jumper? Lol

    I need 4 jumpers 4 polos and was maybe thinking of spoiling us and getting coats..

    But for 4 jumpers and polos it going to cost me £180?

    I just said that's ridiculous and walked out.. £60 to be able to do my logo? Wtf kinda people are they!!

  2. Thats not massively over the top. We wanted our logo stitched on so paid £40 + vat to set it up then explained we had already brought the clothes from the wholesalers £10 for Regatta fleeces £8 for polo shirts so asked if they would just run them through the machine. There was about 30 items though at £2.50 per garment but you could still ask. Other cheaper way would be to get your logo printed but they would still make money when ordering in the clothes.

    Logo Printed or stitched was £50+ vat!!

    Just text printed or stitched was £25+ vat!!!

    Then £18 per jumper £12 per polo after that!! These prices seem fair but don't like the set up charges.. So will browse around first..
     
  4. What work are they going to have to do for your logo? Are they designing the artwork or just converting an image?

    When she said its £50+ vat to set up, I said oh I got my art work done.. She said yeah but it's still £50+ vat... That's what put me right off! I got 2 more local places to try, 1 has just moved onto the high street into a big building so going there next and to see if they need a cleaner lol.

    most places have a set up cost that you have to pay, especially if they are screen printing as they need to make up the template for it.

    so 4 jumpers and 4 polo shirts with your logo on the front and website on the back?

    is that all embroidered??
