Excellent news for all you embroidery and custom printing firms out there – the GF Shop is now expanding its business and selling high quality heat printed mugs to the trade. Firms are able to benefit from the fantastic trade prices we offer and add heat printed mugs to their offering.

Printed mugs are an extremely popular product amongst businesses looking for a cost effective way of increasing their exposure. We’ve all seen and used printed mugs, whether at home or in work, and through repeat exposure the message on the brand name or business logo on the mug naturally becomes second nature.

Alternatively our sublimation process offers the option of mugs to be personalised for the individual, by imprinting photographs onto the surface. This makes for perfect presents for special occasions such as birthdays or maybe as a leaving gift. And when purchased for trade you can be assured of a premium quality raw material at an unbelievable price.

Custom clothing and printed mugs go hand and hand, complimenting each other as an offering. If a business is looking to deck out its workforce in custom clothing then they are obviously conscious of their image and the amount of exposure their brand is receiving. There are few more cost effective methods of increasing exposure than with the use of branded products such as printed mugs. This will give your business a fantastic cross-selling opportunity and will have your customers chewing your arm off.

If you would like to discuss the printed mugs we sell to the trade then please do not hesitate to call the GF Shop on 029 2075 5733 or email


GF Shop Price Freeze

Posted by gareth

As I’m sure you are all aware there is a lot of trouble out in North Africa and the Middle East at the moment, with the brave citizens finally taking it upon themselves to overthrow, or at least attempt to, some of the world’s most outdated regimes. These areas, particularly Egypt, are some of the world’s largest cotton producing countries, and as a result prices of cotton are currently skyrocketing as supplies become more and more difficult to get hold of.

Now as usual, no part of the supply chain seems prepared to take any kind of reduction to their profit margins in order to spare the end customer a custom clothing price hike. Well here at the GF shop we like to think a bit differently; outside the box if you’ll excuse the cliché. For that reason we’ve decided that whilst prices for pretty much every commodity and service are currently going through the roof, we’ll try and buck the trend all by our lonesome, and spare our customers another cost they can do without.

So we are announcing our PRICE FREEZE!

We know there is only so much we can do, after all, we are merely suppliers of custom clothing, albeit damn good custom clothing. But hopefully this small gesture on our part will help ease some of the financial concerns of businesses and individuals alike across the UK.

Prices and services frozen till end of 2011:

  • Embroidered, printed and blank BADGES
  • Embroidered, printed and blank PENNANTS
  • Embroidered, printed and blank EPAULETTES
  • Printed or blank SASHES
  • Sewing Services
  • Digitizing Services

So if you are looking for a great deal there really is only one place to go – The GF Shop. Whilst all our competitors’ prices are on the up ours are going to sit pretty, exactly where they are, ensuring you receive a fantastic deal on all your custom clothing requirements. 

If you would like to place an order then please follow our simple, but rather clever, online purchasing process. Alternatively, if you require any further information then give us a call and our friendly team will be all too happy to help.

There’s absolutely no risk of finding a hole in one of our items of embroidered clothing. And you know where else there is no risk of a hole in one? On the golf course, that’s where. If you doubt the authenticity of this statement then the proof will be in the pudding. And the pudding is to come in the form of the Macmillan – Longest Day Golf Challenge.

Now in pudding terms this is a big one, like a massive sprawling trifle. On June 21 we are supporting the fantastic work of the good people at Macmillan Cancer Support by completed 4 rounds of golf in just one day. Some figures to put this endeavour into perspective: we will have to walk over 25 miles, play for over 15 hours and hit around 300 shots (realistically more like 3,000).

Last year over 300 teams took part in the challenge and raised more than £325,000 to help those people in the UK living with cancer. So here at The GF Shop we thought it was about time we did our bit.

Now the last thing we want to do is to hold everyone up; so naturally we’ve been putting in a bit of training. This has been the difficult bit. Because as a real golf fan, training has meant playing lots and lots of golf – the things we have to do ay. 

Anyway, the main reason for this blog entry – sponsorship. I want to raise as much money as I possibly can, and for that I need your help. Whether it’s a penny or a pound, I would be infinitely grateful if you could take the time to visit and sponsor me. It’s really simple – you can donate online using your debit or credit card. Thank you so much in advance.

And as far as embroidered clothing is concerned, you can buy that simply and cheaply from our fantastic online store.
