And so we began …Ellena Whitaker
Welcome, to Custom Shirts and More 2nd blog post. We are nestled in the county of Hampshire in the market town of Alton, close to Chawton, famously the home of Jane Austen.
I have always been interested in high-quality garments and excellent customer service. Technology is always updating, and I’m continually learning new techniques and new ways to serve your wardrobe.
Custom Shirts and More began when I couldn’t find a business that could do short runs or one-off orders and that didn’t have expensive setup charges or minimum orders.
So I looked into purchasing the equipment to produce designs myself. I also thought others like me, entertainers and small business owners would be interested in getting their logos and such onto garments, bags etc.
A great friend of mine and a fellow entertainer ‘Louis Taylor’ was instrumental in pushing me to look into the equipment required. He said he would purchase from me, as would others.
I always wanted to offer embroidery as a service but started with the digital heat transfers first. When enough people made inquires about embroidery, I knew it was time to launch that side of the business.
I knew customers coming to me wanted my quality and attention to detail and decided to keep the production and design in house.
