If you are planning to order a custom kit for your cycling club, it is essential that you ensure you have taken everything into consideration. Below is a guide to the things you will need to think about before placing your order with a sports clothing manufacturer.

1. The Artwork 

The artwork you feature on your cycling gear is perhaps the most distinctive element of the whole design. While cycling clubs may use similar colours for their kits, each clubs kit will feature a unique design. When designing the artwork, it is always best to approach a professional design company who will be able to take your ideas and turn them into a great piece of artwork. Once you have settled on a design, it is important that you send this to the clothing manufacturer in the correct format so that it can be printed onto the kit. You should send the design as a high-resolution file.

2. The Quality of the Fabric

Often, what makes the difference between an excellent custom kit and an average one is the quality of the fabric used. High-quality fabric will hold the colours which are printed onto it and will maintain clear lines with minimal blurring. The fabric should also offer excellent ventilation and range of movement. The best way to find high-quality fabric is to ask for recommendations from others in the cycling community.

You should also pay attention to anyone who complains about how their kit is performing. If someone complains, you should try to find out where they sourced their custom kit from. You should also ask the clothing manufacturer to ship you a test kit which can be tried on by everyone in the club. This will allow you to establish the sizes that everyone requires as well as allowing you to test the feel, look and performance of the fabric.

3. The Number of Kits Ordered

Typically, the higher the number of kits you wish to order, the cheaper each kit will be. You should try to maximise the number of custom cycling kits in each order. For example, you could order reserve kits for team members -- or offer the kits out to family, friends and other supporters of your cycling club. By reducing the cost of each kit, you may be able to upgrade the quality of the design or the fabric used to create the custom gear.
