What is the difference between sublimated and cut and sew garments?

Sublimation is the latest technology utilised in garment manufacture where the colours, patterns, logos, names and numbers are printed onto paper before the paper is then transferred under heat through a press onto the fabric.

Cut and sew refers to the process of manufacturing a product from scratch. These orders are sewn together in selected patterns and colour combinations with further embellishments such as embroidery and screen printing added at a later stage.

How do I begin to place an order?

Our customers should begin with one of the following activities:

Click on the Contact Us tab and phone or email your local sales Manager, or

Click on the Request A Quote tab and fill out the proposed order form. This will be directed to our National Sales Manager who will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible.

Alternatively you can go directly to the Aspect DYO tab and begin your own designing process. At any time you can forward your details and our staff will be in contact asap.

What is the DYO ordering procedure?

Once you submit an online request via the Aspect DYO you will be assigned a dedicated staff member. They will assist you through the following stages to ensure your garments are delivered on time and on budget.

– Quote and Acceptance

– Artwork and Design

– Size and Quantity Confirmation

– Colouring, Logos and Numbering

– Terms of Trade

– Production and Collection / Delivery

In what format do we need to provide Club and Sponsors logo’s?

Ideally to ensure the correct logos and colours are printed we require high resolution .PDF or .EPS files. If these format logos can’t be supplied our in house artwork department can look to redraw or create logos. Please note there may be small additional fees associated with this service.

How long does the art work and design stage take?

Time taken to complete this stage is completely up to the customer. It is often a difficult decision making process for groups or individuals to make so we always suggest to clubs to get this process underway as soon as possible.

The process requires you to source logos, confirm sizes and quantities as well as allowing for some general time to produce artwork and the back and forth nature of changes or upgrades. This process is far quicker for repeat orders.

What are the lead times on custom made garments?

Delivery is approximately 42 days after sign off of your order.

How do you know what size you need?

There are two options to assist in this process. The Aspect Sportswear website provides size charts for all our garments that can be cross referenced throughout.

Alternatively we can provide a short term loan of garments to be used for sizing purposes to ensure the correct sized garments are ordered. Either option is supported by your dedicated account executive who can assist throughout this process.

Is there a minimum order quantity?

Yes, the minimum order quantities are as follows:

10 for sublimated orders

21 for cut and sew orders
