The design is the most important part of the process when it comes to your team apparel. At Cheeta we don’t want you to be limited by a design generator. We want you to have gear that you love, not that you just like, or even worse something you accepted because it was the best option out of a bad bunch! These generators are great for getting ideas and putting them together quickly but they are very limiting. There is a lot to think about when designing a garment.
- What is it for?
- What do you like?
- Who is going to be wearing it?
- What are the demographics of your members?
- How often do you change suppliers?
- What logos and customisations need to be included?
- Do you or your sponsors have strict colour/branding guidelines?
These are just some of the questions you should be considering when designing your gear. We guide you through the process and help you match your design to the club branding, your members desires and current trends in the market. We understand that club committee members are volunteers and don’t necessarily have the time to work through this. We complete this process everyday and pride ourselves in it, so let us do the hard work!
But what if you want something simple or to replicate gear you already have? Further to this, sometimes there may be an out of the box item that you love that may no longer be available – we can help replicate this. Or maybe you love a design on a hoodie and want to see it matched across other garments such as polos – we can also do this. If you are a club we want you to think beyond this year. We encourage you to be proactive and come up with ways to minimise mismatched items. One way we do this is through story boards. For example, you may be a new club and you know you would like to get players to buy a jacket in future seasons but it is too much to ask them to fork out this season. Whilst we are designing your on-field gear we will help with these off-field items so you can make sure there is a consistent look and feel across all garments.
Minimum orders do apply for custom items, but if you are designing gear that your members love you should not have any trouble reaching these.
