We’ve created a list of essential products for your running club kit focusing on the premium sublimation printing method. What are the benefits of sublimation, we hear you ask?
This type of print provides the ability to print all over the vest, without a visible residue from the printing method. This is because the ink is infused directly in to the Qwick-Dri™ fabric, leaving no visible residue. It also means that your club kit will remain fade-free, ensuring longevity and offering additional value for money over the next few years.
Running Club Kit Items
- RUNNING VESTS
The true staple of a running club, your custom running vests should uniquely represent your club in terms of colours and images. As specialists in sublimation, we’ve created a range of running club kit over the year that pushes the boundaries in what can be can be achieved.
Your options are limitless, allowing for great flexibility to meet the specific demands of your club. For example, if your club is likely to run in the evenings over the winter, reflective panelling or fluorescent colours will help keep members safe when road running.
If focus lies with distance running during the year’s hottest months, mesh side panelling provides additional ventilation for quicker wicking and sustained comfort. Scimitar’s custom running vests are made with our signature Qwick-Dri™ fabric; technology that actively promotes rapid moisture wicking directly at source.
Want something a little different for your custom vests? We’ve heard it all, so don’t’ be afraid to ask!
- RUNNING TEES
Perfect for the colder nights, running club tees are often the preferred choice for running club kit over vests. If your club regularly competes in OCR events, you’ll be familiar with Technical T-Shirts, constructed from the same wicking material as running vests.
As with vests, sublimation print allows for all over print with an unlimited choice of colours. The flexibility doesn’t stop there – the printing method allows for unlimited placement of logos and sponsoring, allowing for multiple monetisation methods should you be looking for financial support.
A wide variation of options of available to customise your products, in the same vein as running vests. Mesh side panelling, reflective piping and various collar options are amongst the options available for you. If you’re after something else, do let us know and we’ll do our best to manufacture it to your specific requirements.
- RUNNING JACKETS
Whether you’re looking for lightweight Spring/Summer waterproof jackets to protect yourself from the elements, or a thicker garment designed for warmth and comfort in the Winter, club running jackets over the perfect solution. Branded with the same elements as your vests and tees, your custom running jackets can be manufactured to your exact design requirements and needs.
Personalisation is key, it’s often said. With our custom running jackets, you can add your clubs details, and look to include personalised names or nicknames for that true, personal feel. As part of the package, winter jackets may be worn outside of the events as well, providing additional functionality for members of your club.
Customisation is key, too! We recommend utilising reflective panelling on winter jackets, while the ability to include fleece lining can help keep you and your fellow members warm during training sessions and meets.
- RUNNING LEGGINGS & SHORTS
Running leggings have really come to life in the last few years, and are the perfect training companion on cold winter nights, and for those gym sessions. Custom compression leggings for runners are available with both men and women styling, and with custom leggings, you can have specific club branding applied.
Running shorts go without saying. Tailored exclusively for distance runners, options include mesh fabric and split legs to provide additional performance. Another product benefiting from our Qwick-Dri™ fabric, running shorts come complete with performance lining, to reduce chaffing and improve comfort for long sessions, such as marathons or trail events.
We’re proud ambassadors of sublimation printing for our compression leggings and shorts, allowing for endless customisation based on your specific needs. Sublimation allows for Pantone-perfect colour matching, all over print and the addition of badges, sponsors and logos as and where required.
