Teesside University is based in Middlesbrough and has over 20,000 students. Teesside University Student’s Union is the heart of the university, hosting events throughout the academic year, from fresher’s week to Final Fling. There’s always something happening. The Students’ Union mission is to make a significant contribution to the students’ lives at University, and secure a positive and inclusive experience for all.
Workwear Express were approached by Teesside University in 2008 to quote and supply printed t-shirts for events the Students’ Union host throughout the academic year. Due to the range of events, the requirement can be from 50 garments for smaller events to over 3,000 t-shirts for larger events for example fresher’s week. With the print design varying from year to year depending on the theme of the event, it is normally a full colour front and back print.
Workwear Express liaise with Luke from the Students’ Union who heads up the student events at Teesside University. Knowing the t-shirts are normally worn for a one off event the cost has to extremely reasonable. Once happy with the quote, Workwear Express will receive artwork designs for the event, then our experience in-house art department take the designs and place them on to proof designs of the garments. Once the designs are approved, the garments then go into the relevant department for either print or embroidery.
Workwear Express have completed print runs of over 6,000 t-shirts for Fresher’s Week and Final Fling.
