We are still despatching with industry beating deadlines as normal as our warehouses / logo units are still open for online orders. Our shop is limited 1 person entry to supply PPE items.
We have supplied the latest stock of our PPE masks goggles etc to the NHS Effort and were commended for not increasing prices during this time like other suppliers.
Some brands of Leisurewear like AWDIS, HENBURY,  are  in short supply due to logistical problems. All hi vis and current stocks are good.

Keep safe everyone

Sample approval template


 To ensure good quality embroidery we here at hivis use the best quality backing paper for our embroidered logos, this means using heavier backing paper which is" CUT" away from the garment, as opposed to us using the cheaper backing paper which is "TORN" away from the garment after stitching. Using tear away paper is done by some embroidery companies but we feel it can distort the embroidery so always recommend to use "CUT" away paper. The Downside to using cut away is that on white garments it can sometimes be seen through the garment as in the image below. We do however feel it is a small price to pay to achieve longevity and quality in embroidery.

It is quite common for the biggest companies to still use cut away, such as Adidas, Nike, and it can be seen even the most prominent people on TV and sports stars etc choose to go this route for the trade off in quality. We will, however, use tear away paper should you prefer and just let us know at embroidery approval stage if it is an issue for you.
