The London University Bouldering Event (L.U.B.E) is a competition which was set up 6 years ago by the Mountaineering Club and since then has grown steadily to be the event that today sees over 200 climbers and 17 universities taking part!
This year they decided to produce some amazing printed tees for the competition winners.
All the winners received LUBE t-shirts from T-Shirts UK. The bright orange sports t-shirts will be a great way for the winners to remember the comp and to show off their achievements at their local climbing walls!
The university, already being one of our UK clients, chose to use the Sols Sporty model for a medium-premium range technical T-shirt which would be a great, long-lasting momento for those involved!
Before printing our client’s order we sent them a Digital Artwork Proof (DAP) of their design to make sure all was correct and as understood by both parties. We always aim to be as clear as possible as we know it can be daunting to order personalised items online!
This year’s tees were produced with 2-colour screen-printing on the front + 1-colour on the back with the competition’s logo on orange sports t-shirts to produce the desired eye-catching effect.
Before the event, the climbing society at King’s College was great at promoting their event on social media using their excellent printed T-shirts which had arrived in keeping with our 2-week turn-around time to motivate and inspire their participants!

As stated we used traditional screen-printing for this order as the design was straight-forward using 2 spot colours which is ideal for this resistant, hand-crafted technique which gives fantastic results!
We’ve since heard the event was a great success and hope all those who did manage to grab those coveted L.U.B.E t-shirts are very happy with their winning gift!

Another technique we can use if you choose to create personalised technical T-shirts in white is sublimation printing. This technique is great for customised sports tees because the printing is indeleble and breathable!
