Charity Running Vests – The Lowdown

Choosing the right running vest for your charity isn’t as simple as it might seem.
With a plethora of options available to customise your charity running vests to an exact specification, it’s easy to lose yourself in what’s actually necessary for your event.

Material & Print

We are proud specialists of sublimation charity running vests, the crème de la crème of printing methods for running apparel.
Sublimation print on to technical fabric has grown in stature over the past few years. It has become a staple of technical performance gear across a wide variety of sports and sectors, including charity cycling jerseys, performance team kits and corporate workwear.
Not only does the fade-free sublimation print allow pantone-perfect colour matching, but the infusion of the ink directly into the technical fabric leaves no residue. This adds minimal weight to the product for comfort and technical performance.
This is important for a number of reasons:

  • The fade-free sublimation print ensures prolonged wearing, even after the event has finished.
  • The lack of print residue gives the garment a soft, lightweight and flawless finish.
  • The technical fabric benefits from 360° breathability & wicking offered by sublimation print.

There are also screen-printed & water-printed running vests available for charities. The direct (and obvious) benefits of sublimation printing against these methods, however, are highly recommended by us.

Options

What about the options? Think about the charity events you have coming up, and prepare for them in advance.
For example, if the core set of events take place in the warmer summer months (June through August), the addition of mesh side panels can help with the wicking of perspiration, keeping runners dry, cool and comfortable throughout the event.

Scimitar charity running vest examples are located at the bottom of this blog. All of these pictures were taken at the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon.
We were well represented, with charities including MS Society, Spinal Research, Blue Cross & the Queen Elizabeth Foundation for Disabled People.

Purchasing

Purchasing in bulk will bring down the overall cost of the sublimation charity running vests, providing you with a better individual cost per garment.
Furthermore, bulk purchasing can also help avoid any extra charges, such as delivery or set-up fees.
As well as providing participants with your branded sublimation charity running vests, there is the opportunity to sell vests directly to consumers to help drive more fundraising for your cause.
Likewise, utilise one supplier for all of your charity equipment (cycle jerseys, flags, banners, promotional items & eventwear such as hoodies and cotton t-shirts). This can help drive down overall cost, while offering a one-stop shop for all of your equipment.
Allow us take away the pain of multiple sourcing methods and provide you with an all-in-one solution with convenient delivery dates for you!
