Papini’s Zoodies are available to companies, and organisations who want to combine the practicality of the hoodie with a top quality garment. Companies who want a look that helps to professionalise the appearance of their staff will find these an attractive option. The iconic zipped hoodie range will find themselves comfortably at home from the shipyards of Barrow to the Farms of the Solway Plain and the Eden Valley! This range has had 3 exciting new colourways added: Fuchsia (that’s pink to you and me!) with Navy contrast, Black with Grey contrast and a Red version with Black contrast. These garments are fantastic as stand alone workwear or leisurewear colours in a wide range of settings. They comfortably span the professional and casual of Cumbria’s organisations and businesses. Not only do they work as standalone items, but Papini have had their designers hard at work coming up with a complementary set of colourways that also mix & match with the Elite range polo shirts in the Enna, Milano, Sienna & Ferrara colourways.

Hen Party T-Shirt & Stag Party T-Shirt printing

Before your big day there’s a big night out.

Hen Party T-Shirts

Wedding season is in full flow and, here at Stitch & Print, we’re seeing the usual enquiries about Stag and Hen Party T-shirts from our many new Cumbria customers– as well as some less traditional requests from within the county and the Borders and Eden Valley!

The Hen Party T Shirt Phenomenon

Hen parties tend to fall into two types – the drink and dance party nights and the relax and refresh spa breaks.  We cater for both with a selection of T-shirt designs to mark out the party crowd (not including L plates, pink cowboy hats and feather boas) and fluffy dressing gowns and slippers for those who are planning to pamper.

Hen Party T Shirt for a Relaxing Weekend

Our hen party T-Shirts are always a favourite for the girls’ big night out and we’ve loads of options: round neck, V-neck, short-sleeved, long-sleeved, fitted or baggy.  Brides –to-be (or their bridesmaids) can choose from Stitch & Print’s range of hen night designs or send us their own idea and we can make something different – we can even bling a design with diamante effects for the perfect party.

One of the biggest hen party orders we ever had at Stitch & Print was for over 50 T-shirts for a local Cumbrian wedding.  These covered five different hen party dates and venues so the “Tour Dates” were recorded on the back with ticks for which ones the various girls were attending.

Stag Do T Shirts Too!

And for the gentlemen (!), we have a similarly wide range of colours, T-shirt designs and styles.  Stag night T-shirts tend to use a few standard jokes and images but we’re happy to create something a bit different if the best man has his own ideas.

One of the more unusual ones we were asked to create was for a diamante L Plate to be printed to the nether regions of a fluorescent yellow mankini whilst the rest of the boys had matching coloured T-Shirts to show their support – not a pretty look but decidedly funny!

We all know stag parties tend to be wild affairs and I think the main benefit of a party T-shirt is often to help these lads to recognise each other across a crowded bar or club. But if your chosen venue isn’t keen on something too in your face or larger groups of boys on the night out we’ve done hundreds of polo shirts with more discreet logos to help you find each other.

Whatever the ideas for the order and however many people are involved, it’s great for Stitch & Print to be part of a couple’s big day and we enjoy coming up with something a bit different to get the party started.

Trousers – A Brief History

In the majority of the Western world trousers have been worn since ancient times, becoming the most popular lower body garment in modern times. Once just a male item, the trouser generally became unisex in the 20th Century when women’s rights improved.

Although previously women wore pants for riding, they were covered with a skirt. Many styles of trousers have gone in and out of fashion over the years, such as flares, chinos and jeans. Zip-off trousers and various lengths of cut-off trousers are more recent developments in the trouser history that are stocked at Stitch & Print’s North Cumbria shop and production facility.
