Hoodies for School Trips

We’re all going on a ….

Now don’t get me wrong ……….. It’s only a slight case of old age jealousy that’s got a tight grip on my soul today ………… But honestly, Taking a School Trip …. they’re not what they used to be! You wouldn’t have caught us in hoodies for a start off!

I remember visiting the local park for a nature trip ……. I remember visiting a redundant local mine for a social history trip ……… I remember a visit to a disused quarry that was disguised as a Geography trip …… I even remember a trip to London for a privileged few ………

History trip: A rare visit to Washington DC where a group hoodie would make children more easily accounted for.

History trip anyone?

But  nowadays School trips have taken on a whole new lease of life! Sports trips to Barbados. History trips to Berlin & Washington DC. Geography trips to Iceland. Ski Trips (every year, not just one in a blue moon) to the top European resorts.

Kids, When your parents say you’ve never had it so good …….. They’re not kidding! Your parents had lousy school trips! Trust me, 6 days in a great destination trumps three hours at a local quarry with home made sandwiches & a bottle of pop for your lunch every time!

Ski trip: French Alps. Hoodies less useful on ski slopes but perfect for apres ski and travel.

So, why the rant about School trips? There isn’t a problem really, life’s for living, get out there, enjoy, explore, take every opportunity you can lay your hand on! The real reason for it is that there’s a great offshoot of the school trip phenomenon; The school trip hoodie. Not only is it a great momento & badge to show off that you’ve been there, done that …… It’s great for the school staff too; They get to identify the straggler from their group a lot easier meaning you’re not left off the bus, or the train, or if you’re one of the lucky ones, the plane!

“There are a few companies across Cumbria offering embroidery services for school uniforms,” says Richard Mattinson, MD of Stitch & Print, “but there are often minimum order limits and there may be a restricted range of basic garments.  With the breadth of our business, we can do any quantity and can offer a wide range of options and prices.”

We’re very competitive on our full range of both staff & pupil uniform, whether it’s for a large school, a bustling nursery or a small child minding business & all of our uniform prices includes embroidery.  “We’ve worked on 500 pieces for schools in Carlisle, 20 pieces for a nursery in Weymouth & done a single polo shirt for a start-up child-minding business in Cockermouth, in the last year and they were very pleased with the results and service on the different order sizes we offer,” says Richard.

So, if you’re considering creating a school uniform for your nursery or child-minding business don’t be put off by thinking it’s only for large school, We have a minimum quantity of a single piece of embroidered school uniform!
