About Us

Our "Printworks" is based here in the seaside town of Whitstable. A town with a distinctive character, popular with tourists and steeped in maritime heritage, Whitstable is situated on the North Kent Coast and is the first seaside town when heading East from London. To the North of Whitstable is the Thames Estuary, to the South is the full county of Kent, bursting with cycling routes that are set in amongst countryside known nationwide as the "Garden of England".

From our printing workshop in Whitstable we utilise over 30 years of screen printing and design experience to produce our garments from design concept through to finished product. Hand screen printing offers unique control and allows fine tuning of designs to achieve different effects and finishes in line with varied design themes. The screen printing process as we know it today dates back to the early 1900's and is a technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink blocking stencil that carries a desired design. It's through this stencil that ink is then forced via an ink loaded squeegee on to a multitude of surfaces, which, in our case, is the humble t-shirt.

In addition to screen printing we also house embroidery machines here in our workshop. These machines allow us to offer a different kind of design finish that lends itself perfectly to small details and subtle touches. Again, this process is fully controlled by ourselves, right from design digitisation through to final machining allowing us to continue our full in-house production theme.

All of our designs and garment themes are inspired by the historical, passionate sport of road cycling. A sport steeped in tradition, road cycling offers an infinite base of possibilities with age old professional races, heroic pro riders and steep mountain roads always at the forefront when attempting to conjure new designs. Keen cyclists ourselves and true fans of the sport we ride as much as we can and are always looking for any excuse to get across to mainland Europe to ride famous mountain passes (slowly!) and to cheer on the pros in the biggest races.

We hope that our enthusiasm for cycling and our garment design and printing experience results in a collection of designs that really appeal. Our aim is to provide designs that capture the aura of road cycling and place them on clothing items that are perfect for donning in front of Eurosport with a beer or for wearing roadside when cheering on a favourite rider.

Whatever scenario you choose to wear yours be safe in the knowledge that each and every t-shirt, sweatshirt, polo or hoodie has been lovingly produced by our own fair hands here in Whitstable using age old techniques fuelled by an ingrained passion for the sport of cycling.
