Having returned from a holiday in New York in 1986, my wife and I saw a huge opportunity to create innovative designs in the Heritage clothing sector. I had friends in the retail souvenir market and they were very vocal about the poor selection of t-shirt designs and abysmal customer service retailers seemed to receive from UK suppliers and printers. There had to be a better way.
Over thirty years later, unbelievable I know, we have retained Spike Leisurewear’s independence and are not financially linked to any worldwide conglomerate or generic clothing brand. Today, we continue to do what we have always done best – design, source, print and distribute quality, innovative t-shirts to our many valued customers throughout the UK. Our focus is our customers, their needs and the best value we can possibly offer.
Apart from the heritage and souvenir sectors we have continued to forge strong relationships with established licensors, such as Disney, BBC and Apple Corps to develop successful licensed character t-shirt ranges – who doesn’t love Mr Bean or Harry Potter?
We are frequently asked to develop customised t-shirt gifts for prime retail heritage outlets such as The Tower of London, The Beatles Story and London Transport Museum – a major growth area and we are particularly good at it. Mail order groups and of course, many independent gift outlets throughout the UK continue to be regularly serviced with new and innovative ranges.
If you are an existing customer, thank you for your continued support. If you are a new customer we look forward to having you on board. To our loyal team at Spike, thank you for your dedicated support, suggestions and hard work.
“Spike Leisurewear is one of the most professional companies I have had the pleasure to work with over the past nine years. They have a team of really dedicated people, for whom nothing is too much trouble.”
