How we got started

Custom Merch was started by our head printer Dave, way back in the 1990s. With a great eye for design and a passion for vintage Americana, Dave started his own t-shirts label selling through independent stores all across the UK.  So that he could get his t-shirts looking exactly as he wanted them, he taught himself screen printing   and experimented with all kinds of printing techniques to get the perfect finish.  He started printing for other brands and businesses, and as word got around the business got bigger and Custom Merch was born.  20 years on, Dave heads up our team of printers, and we print for clients all across the UK, Europe and beyond.  

What we do 

We take your designs and idea and make them into all kinds of printed garments and goods.  We focus on working with retail brands - of all shapes and sizes, from start ups through to national brands.  This allows us to target the garments and print processes that retail brands need, including offering premium brands with fashion focussed fits and colourways, and adding extra details to your garments such as re-branding, inside neck prints, custom woven labels, hem tags, sleeve tags and swing tags. 

With minimum orders from 30 garments through to runs of 1000s, we work with clients of all shapes and sizes. 

How we do it

We're a small but dynamic team of 7 humans (and 3 dogs) and we're passionate about  creating great quality products and offering fantastic customer service.  We pride ourselves on giving every order the personal touch.
