Have you seen our feature in the local magazine All About Horsham? It showcases a sublimated football kit supplied by us for the new football team Horsham Flames. The football team is made up of players from The Butterfly Project Horsham with sponsors YESSS Electrical, OMS (One Mortgage System), Nightingale Service Centre and BEL Signs. The kit is predominantly in orange and grey with the club logo on the chest that features a phoenix and then a flame reaches up to the side of the shirt. Combined with matching shorts of grey or bright orange and dark socks the team looks great pictured at the new Horsham Football Club Stadium along with a few of their sponsors.
Our relationship with The Butterfly Project goes back to 2017 when Service Manager Richard James came to our sister company BEL Signs for fascia signage for their premises on Springfield Road, Horsham. The sign features their logo with raised lettering in grey and oranges, colours reflected in the new sublimated kit. With both companies, BEL Signs and Appliedfx, based within one large factory we were able to then help with branded clothing and talk to Richard about sportswear and put forward this innovative type of printing for their kit.
Richard is very pleased with the finished look, saying to All About Horsham magazine:
“Our players wanted a kit with their own identity, so we spoke to AppliedFX and they’ve been amazing. Peter has even attracted sponsors on our behalf. The players designed everything. Look closely and you’ll see that the emblem is the Mockingjay from The Hunger Games! They wanted to look professional and now they do.”
An innovative process
Sublimation is a printing process that can use images, tints, blends and patterns that can wrap around the body and garment of the kit, making your kit as unique as your team. The added benefit with sublimation is that several logos can be placed onto the design in full colour including club badges, names, and numbers making it ideal for sports, clubs, and events.
Here at Appliedfx, we have produced many sublimated kits for local football clubs in Sussex. Furngate Youth Football Club features a large logo faded on the back, but it’s not just football kits that sublimation is ideal for, any sport from netball to dance, cricket to cycling. For example, we have produced running shirts and vests in various sizes and fits for local running club Horsham Run Fit that has side panels of colour, the logo large on the front and sponsor logos on all sides and sleeves.
