Oxford, United Kingdom, August 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Shirtworks, a leading supplier of customised t-shirts and promotional clothing, has reported record sales in the month of June 2010. The high number of sales, in particular of t-shirts printed for the festival season and tourist industry, has been attributed to a number of factors, including the relatively weak pound and the warm summer weather enjoyed in June.

"I'm delighted to report such excellent sales results, especially when everyone is looking for positive signs of recovery in the UK economy," said Arron Harnden, MD of Shirtworks. "June was a record-breaking month for us, and compared with the slow sales in January, it's a remarkable upturn in sales." When asked which products were the most popular, Arron replied; "definitely our printed T-shirts; the summer is always a good time for t-shirts obviously, but this year the fine summer weather encouraged people to push the boat out and order lots of customised festival t-shirts. In addition, we supply many of the Oxford tourist shops with souvenir t-shirts, and they've been selling particularly well too."
"The tourist t-shirt industry has been helped by the relatively weak pound," Arron added. "When the weather is hot during their holiday, the tourists are buying t-shirts to wear during their trip as well as for friends and family back home. With the weak pound, the T-shirts are more of a bargain too, so I think that has been a huge contributing factor. Here's hoping that the hot weather returns and that this T-shirt sales trend will continue over the rest of the summer too!"
