Personalised Tees for Associação Tartarugas Marinhas

Today we show one of our most special collaborations from our Portuguese partners: these personalised tees for Associação Tartarugas Marinhas. 🐢


The Associação Tartarugas Marinhas is an environmental organization that fights for the protection of sea turtles in Portuguese-speaking countries, with incubation centres and protection of the offspring, so that they reach the sea well and surveillance of the beaches where sea turtles hatch their eggs hatch.



His work is supported by such important institutions as the Lisbon Oceanarium, the USFWS (U.S Fish and Wildlife Service) or the Rufford Foundation. We wanted to contribute to that beautiful cause with personalised t-shirts for staff, volunteers and events like the football championship they organized on the island of São Tomé and Príncipe. 🙂


Printing charity t-shirts is a simple and effective way to raise funds thanks to its sale, and also gain notoriety and visibility. It’s a total win-win!

We recommend using screen-printing for larger orders whether your design is 1-spot-colour or 6 because it is usually the most economic personalisation method! But if you’re not sure, you can send us your design so that our sales assistants can help assess what you need.



Advantages to screen-printing your designs:

  • Cost effective in both small and large orders
  • Long-lasting
  • High wash resistance

Personalised Tote Bags for Charities

Today we bring you these wonderful personalised tote bags for charities which were created through a superb collaborative work between the illustrator Supersinglemami and the NGO Kolam.

Custom tote bags, designed by Supersinglemami, sold to raise money for disadvantaged families in India.

Raquel y Víctor se ponen en contacto conmigo con un email, explicándome el porqué de Kolam, y el porqué necesitan fondos para sus tres proyectos que actualmente están llevando a cabo en Udaipur (Rajasthan, India). A mi se me cae la baba con este tipo de personas que van, ven y actúan, no puedo hacer nada más que admirarlos por su valentía y decir sí a lo que necesiten de mi para ayudar, en este caso, ayudar a equipar un colegio de Gorana, situado en una zona rural muy pobre, este es el destino del dinero recaudado de estas totebags diseñadas por mi, con las que este verano nos vamos a la playa … Espero que os gusten y que como a mi os hagan sentir un poquito más orgullosas de vosotras mismas por el hecho de contribuir a que la vida de alguien ( y en especial de alguna madre) que no conoces de nada, pero que no tiene tanta suerte como tu, mejore … Podéis colaborar comprando la totebag en la tienda de @Ong_kolam Feliz día suertudas! #ONG_kolam #supersinglemami #totebag

The charity organisation Kolam was established in 2015 and has since produced 3 marvellous projects in India:

  • Slums in Udaipur: an adoption project that includes educating children in difficult economic situations or in distress along with a continuous review and family support.
  • Planting the future: educating and training people in farming as well as bring in the tools necessary to grow crops in two villages of extreme poverty: Khardi and Parevi.
  • Friends of Gorana school: an official school with 10 qualified teachers and 235 students fighting for their future to help bring their generation out of the vicious cycle of poverty.

It’s this last project that will receive the funds collected by these excellently designed charity tote bags. We know that cotton tote bags are great for many reasons; they’re practical, comfortable and recyclable but on top of that if they’re for charity, what could really be better?

Designed charity tote bags

In order to print multicoloured designs on to garments or any design with many colours or shading, we offer quadritrans, our excellent classic textile transfer service.

Why is Quadritrans so excellent, you ask?

Well, first it allows us to print photos and designs with no colour limits meaning we can print just about any image! Also, it’s very resistant and durable as well as being less obvious to the touch than other personalisation techniques, such as CAD-cut vinyl.

Custom tote bags

The bag chosen for this order was the Joytex Riad model:

  • 100% cotton
  • Natural beige colour but also with other colours available
  • 140gr/m2
  • With two long straps (30cm approx.) for carrying on the shoulder
  • With a Confidence in textiles certificate which assures that no toxic substances or harmful colourants have been used in the manufacturing to ensure the safety and security of our environment and of our skin.

Personalised T-shirts for associations

This week we thought we’d help in some small way towards the work of GiMe (Gruppo Italiano Mesotelioma), an Italian NGO spreading information about a very sensitive subject: Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer delevoped from contact with asbestos, by sharing with you the personalised T-shirts for associations that they produced.

Personalised t-shirts associations

These customised tees were designed and created for the ‘Il viaggio di Paolo‘ campaign. Following the link you can read about the campaign and get more information on how to get involved if it’s something that interests you!

The association produced a hundred T-shirts printed with a design in 5-colour screen-printing on a white background. Printing on classic white t-shirts is always the cheaper option and allows for up to even 8 colours in screen-printing as well as digital transfer on cotton tees, sublimation on polyester tees and it’s the more affordable option with DTG digital printing too!

As you can see from these examples, the final result was fantastic and we hope these charity t-shirts helped GiMe spread the word about this unknown illness.

Personalised charity tees

One of the many charities we support that we admire greatly is the international Make A Wish Foundation for whom we were proud to produce 300 personalised charity tees printed with their famous logo for their French department.

As you may well know, the Make-A-Wish Foundation aims to bring courage, joy and hope to sick children and teenagers by helping them to accomplish their dreams.

For this personalised t-shirt order, the model chosen was the premium-range Roly Braco T-shirt in Royal Blue colour, to match their company colours:

Although this colour is the perfect match for the Make A Wish Foundation, this model has many more to choose from.

This model is a high-quality promotional T-shirt which is durable and resistent which makes it perfect for using for week-long events or even longer, for congresses, conferences, solidarity campaigns etc.

For their design, the foundation chose to go with a simple but effective 1-colour screen-printed logo on the front and a Volunteer sign on the back to help their staff stand out in the crowd. Wisely, the printing colour chosen was white which always gives a great contrast on a dark or medium-coloured T-shirt like this one.

As you well know, screen-printing is one of our favourite techniques because is allows us to produce logos, texts and all kinds of fantastic designs in spot colours.

Remember just like all our personalised garments, when it comes to washing them, you must take great care to ensure longlife. Our special advice consists of:

  • Washing the item inside out
  • Not ironing directly onto the printing area
  • Using cold-luke-warm water
  • Choosing your washing detergent carefully

So, for whatever event you’ve got planned, customised T-shirts would be a great addition!

Take a look at our varied promotional T-shirt catalogue where you can find a wide range of colours, sizes and styles of tees ready and waiting for you to send us your logo or design to print!
