Format: To create the sharpest print, you should provide your logos and graphics in either of the following file formats:
- Adobe Illustrator ‘.ai’
- Encapsulated Post Script ‘.eps’
- High resolution - over 300 dpi ‘.pdf’
Colours: We can print either using Pantone or CMYK colours. There is no extra charge for number of colours (unless stated), so you can be as bold and colourful as you like.
Design: With over 30 years experience in graphic and branding design we know how to design the best looking cycle clothing. No other custom operators can offer the opportunity to have your kit designed from scratch like a pro team with our level of design expertise. We don’t just slap your logo on, we consider how it would create an entire range. That’s why we like to call it Milltag Bespoke.
Brand sensitivity: We understand that brands have to be handled with respect. It helps us to create a kit that fits perfectly with your brand.
Our logo on your kit: We consider how our logo fits with your kit. We’ll find the best position to work in harmony with your graphics and colours - we even change the colour of our logo to match. After all, this is your kit.
Scaling with sizes: All graphics are scaled to the correct proportions through a the size range, so all garments look the same.
Ethically handmade in Europe: Our factory in Slovakia is family run and ethically approved.
Simple: Creating your kit should not be a difficult process. From range and pricing, to ordering and delivery, we walk you through it. But, if you have a question we’re always available to talk on the phone in our UK office.
Customer Service: Whilst it’s the products that we are known for, without the high service standards we set ourselves we would be nothing. We strive to maintain the highest levels of service in an industry where service is so often seen as an optional extra. That’s why so many customers come back to us year after year.
Minimum orders: We always request that you order at least ten items of a single product. However, if you order over £1500 worth of the same jerseys then we will reduce the minimums to five for other items.
Speed: Even during our busiest period (February to July), we will deliver to you in under 8 weeks from the order, often closer to 6 weeks. Outside this period it’s nearer 4-6 weeks.
Quality: We use the finest textiles and the printers to get the best products that are thoroughly road tested and independently checked for premium quality standards.
Race tested: As worn by Laura Trott and the Matrix Pro Cycling team and by the winners of the Tour de Yorkshire.
Use our guide to work out your ideal garment size.
If you are unsure of the sizing your require, contact us at email@example.com and we’ll help you choose the perfect size.
All our products come in men’s, women’s and children’s specific sizing and cuts for maximum comfort and perfect fit. If you require extra tailoring, for example a longer body for the taller rider, then just ask.
Jerseys, gilets and jackets: Unless stated ‘Race Fit’, our jerseys are a standard ‘Club’ fit for most cyclists so if you are usually a medium in a t-shirt then a medium jersey should be perfect for you, although obviously a more snug fit for riding.
Bibs and tights: These are designed with stretch fabrics to fit snugly. Check your waist size with the guides.
We know how difficult and time consuming it can be organising club kit for your members. That’s why we created Club Plus.
Club Plus provides a secure online store for your club where your members can login during a requested order period and purchase the items they require from us direct. As well as removing a major headache of collecting orders and money from your members it also means we can offer discounts to your members if they purchase a number of items.
Once the total order is collated and approved at the end of the period, production commences. Despatch is then 4-6 weeks and can be shipped either to a club representative for distribution or direct to each individual club member.
For UK clubs of 250+ members we can bring a full sample range of our products to show your members, try for size and generally get to know you.
All our products are fully customisable and for larger clubs we can also offer custom zip pulls and silicon gripper.
We do recommend that we enter a contracted period as your kit supplier to allow you to carefully manage when kit is ordered to look after the needs and concerns of both long-term and more recent members. It also means that there is a clear renewal date to allow you to talk to us but your requirements (and perhaps other companies, although we think that’s unlikely!)
Skipton had been using another company for a couple of years and fancied a change, particularly as reaching minimum orders was proving a problem. A meeting up in North Yorkshire with some kit samples and we were also tasked with updating the current kit to give it a more unique look. Once the new design was signed off we opened the online store page and members flocked to buy the new kit. We look forward to continuing our partnership with SCC for years to come.
Our custom kit service has developed through our customers’ early recognition of our quality, and their desire to have bespoke designed and manufactured Milltag branded kit. We now pride ourselves as being the best quality custom jerseys on the market, with the highest customer service and a keen eye for great design. We believe your custom jerseys should be worth wearing more than any off-the-shelf kit and therefore work tirelessly to provide you with uniquely designed and supremely finished products.
At Milltag we believe that your kit should be unique. That’s why we don’t have design templates that you can re-colour and drop in logos. We work with you to create something that will make you proud, after all, putting on kit you love sets the tone for the day and could be the mental difference between winning or losing.
You may have a design that doesn’t need changing and that’s fine - we understand the importance of tradition and continuity. But if you fancy a change, we can help you create something that you and your members love for years to come.
Delivery is 6-8 weeks from artwork approval and ordering. If you have a specific deadline please let us know as soon as possible so we can check our production schedule and see what we can do. The earlier you can tell us the better so we can book you a production slot - artwork can always follow later.
