Leading Promotional Garment Supplier Shirtworks Reports Record Sales of Custom Embroidered Winter Clothing Caused by Cold Weather Snap

Shirtworks, one of the UK's leading promotional garment embroidering companies has reported record sales of custom embroidered winter clothing as companies deal with the cold snap.

Oxford, United Kingdom, January 21, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Shirtworks, one of the UK's leading suppliers of custom embroidered promotional clothing, reports that the recent extreme cold weather has led to record sales of its winter clothing range. The company recently released a new range of winter garments that can be personalised with embroidered corporate logos in combination with a promotion offering 50% off the set-up costs for a new embroidered logo design. The new range includes ear muffs, which have been particularly popular over the last two weeks of heavy snow and icy weather.

"The extraordinary weather has been a mixed blessing," commented Arron Harnden, MD of Shirtworks. "It's caused disruption for so many businesses, and has made getting to work harder, but we couldn't have asked for better weather just after launching the new winter range of our promotional, workwear and corporate garment collection!" When asked which items in particular have proven to be the most popular, Arron said; "The Sherpa hat has been doing well, and the ear muffs. I must admit I was wondering how the ear muffs would do as you see less people wearing them these days, then this cold snap happened and everyone has been dying to get their hands on a pair!"

Shirtworks embroiders company logos onto garments that are then supplied to staff or offered as corporate gifts. The company has launched a new promotional offer with the winter range, giving 50% off the set-up costs for a new embroidery design. "The offer has been well received by both old and new customers as it's so seasonally relevant," explained Arron. "We can't print logos onto many of our winter promotional clothing as the surface of the garments isn't flat. Embroidery has to be used to put logos onto fleeces and fluffy or woolly clothes and hats. As a result, we get a lot of new embroidered logo design setup requests, hence the popularity of the offer. I think I might be in the minority of MDs in hoping that the cold weather lasts just a little bit longer!" Arron added.
