Printed running t-shirts

Today we show you these eye-catching printed running t-shirts that travelled to the scenic scottish isle of Skye.

It’s not the first time that the Isle of Skye Half Marathon has ordered customised sport tees for their runners, which are usually gives away along with each entry for the race.

This year they chose to personalise technical t-shirts with screen printing using 4 inks on the front and 2 inks on the back:


Printable sports t-shirts are made of 100% polyester fabric, so they are lightweight, breathable and quickly drying. That is why they are used for all kind of sports: fitness, crossfit, running, yoga, tennis, paddle, zumba… They’re a totally must in any sport event.

We have a lot of experience customising technical tees for marathons, races or competitions. We will always advise you on the most appropriate printing technique for your design and budget.


Usually, screen printing is chosen for its long-lasting and high quality results. You can use up to 6 colours to be creative in your design. Just keep in mind that we calculate the final budget based on the number of inks used.

Other recommended printing options are sublimation, if you have to personalise technical tees with a lot of logo sponsors, each one with its corporative colours. This way you don’t have to worry about ink limits. 🙂

If you’ re looking for value sports t-shirts for printing, the Montecarlo T-shirt will meet all expectations. In addition to a full range of colours to choose from, it is available in a lady version at the same price. You will not find better value for money!

Sublimation printing on sports tees

The famous luxury brand Dior contact us to order some technical t-shirts for the last semi-marathon of Paris. The example we bring you today give us a fine excuse to talk about sublimation printing on sports tees.

Printed technical t-shirts are the best choice for any kind of sports events, just like marathons, tournaments or races. And if you decide to print them by sublimation, your tees will remain 100% breathable. How can be that possible?

Easy: sublimation printing is the process of transferring ink to a fabric using heat. The design is first printed on special paper, which is placed on the t-shirt. Then heat is applied, allowing the ink to become part of the tee, so the design will never fade.


There’s a few advantages if you want to create sublimated tees:

  • No screen set-up fees.
  • Unlimited colours.
  • Ideal for photographic images.
  • Print will not fade or peel.
  • Indistinguishable to the touch.

We can only use sublimation on 100% polyester white tees, like Montecarlo t-shirt, which is indeed our best-seller sport tee:


As you can see from the pictures below, these personalised sports t-shirts are full of spectacular colours!


However, if you have a limited budget to customise technical tees you can always choose screen-printing or CAD-cut vinyl, in case you want to put different names or numbers on your t-shirts.

If you have any doubts about the printing technique or what sports tees to choose, get in touch with our helping sales staff who will be glad to help you!

You can print technical t-shirts with the sponsor’s logo, a motivational text or any design you want. To keep the polyester fabric 100% breathable, we recommend to use sublimation printing.

Also, for the best value-for-money we can personalise sport tees with screen-printing for simple designs with plain colours or CAD-cut vinyl, if you need to print multicoloured designs at a low-cost quote.

The little ones are also important and deserve their own customised kid’s t-shirts, specially if you are planning to run an event specially for they like school excursions, music academy events, sports clubs, end-of-year trips, etc.

We offer a large range of printable children’s tees at our online textile catalogue for kids, including long-sleeve t-shirts and technical tees for sports practising.

Custom Printed Running T-shirts

With summer upon us and everyone concentrating on perfecting their bikini bodies, we’ve been hard at work in our textile printing workshop creating these fantastic custom printed running T-shirts for one of the world’s most scenic races: the Isle of Skye Half Marathon.

Custom running t-shirts

Each year this race takes place on the picturesque islands off the coast of Scotland at the beginning of summer, just when the island really hits it’s peak time. And each year the organisers create these amazing personalised technical t-shirts to give away to every participant.

For this year’s personalised running tees, our client chose to print their design on the front and back of white polyester t-shirts with 2-colour screen-printing both sides.

Custom printed running T-shirts

Screen-printing is one of our favourite and most popular printing techniques that allows for a long-lasting and durable print on all types of garments.

With the possibility of printing up to 6 spot colours in a 30x30cm space, it is by far the best value-for-money textile printing method on the market!

The design team at the Half Skye Marathon organisation always send us their artwork in high resolution and excellent quality to ensure a clear and eye-catching result!

Screen printed tees

Another possibility if you need to create customised t-shirts for sports events, is printing with sublimation printing on white, 100% polyester technical t-shirts. This method allows full colour images to be printed at a reasonable cost onto white sports t-shirts without affecting the characteristics of the T-shirt. That is to say, it remains 100% breathable and quick-drying due to the chemical process which produces the indeleble print.

One of the most economic choices for custom running t-shirts is the Roly Montecarlo model. Chosen also for this order, it is very popular for sporting events such as marathons, sports days, fun runs, cycling races and many more.

As you can see it looks like a great day was had by all who took part! Made all the better by receiving their promotional running tee to remind them of the day’s challenge!

Well done to today's finishers! #running #halfmarathon #challenge #winners #personalbest #skyehalfmarathon #challenge

Printed Tees for competition at King’s College London

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.

Technical t-shirts

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!

Personalised tees

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!


Screen printing t-shirts

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!

If you’re thinking of making personalised tees for a sports event and you’re not sure how to do it, why not get in touch today and send us your design so we can help you decide what model and printing method is right for you!

Technical t-shirts
Customised sports tees

We’ve a wide range of technical T-shirts available in our online sports T-shirts catalogue for you to choose from with different styles and characteristics for any type of sport or outdoor event you may have planned in the coming months.

This week we’ve decided to highlight one of our favourite must-have sports t-shirt models for personalising: the Roly Montecarlo t-shirt.

With sports t-shirts for customising, we can offer a range of personalisation techniques:

This week’s examples include the highly popular Portuguese order of white technical T-shirts printed with a company logo in 1-colour screen-printing:

This Portuguese branch of the French consultancy company Aubay created these eye-catching personalised tees for their team running the Lisbon Half Marathon and we have to say that they turned out fantastically!

Not only is it a great boost for the team to be running together and be able to represent their business but it’s a great souvenir for the event for all those involved.

All of our technical T-shirts are available in a range of sizes and colours, perfectly adapted for practising sports due to their breathability factor!

The second example we bring you this week is from the French roller-skating association CSB Roller who chose to print a multi-coloured design on white Roly Montecarlo tees which turned out exceptional!

Sports t-shirt sublimation printing

This time round, all the T-shirts were created for kids and teenagers for a roller skating race. The best thing is that these sports T-shirts were printed using sublimation printing which means they remain 100% breathable even with the printing due to this special personalisation method.

This technique is advantageous for sports t-shirts printed with logos containing lots of colours or shading and for printing that is indelible and indistinguishable to the touch!

However please bear in mind that sublimation printing is also a longer process and often takes more time to produce. It can also only be used on 100% polyester, white garments.

If you’re not sure on how to best print your design, do not hesitate to send it to us and we’ll get back to you with the best, value-for-money quote based on the quantity and product you need.

Two-colour technical T-shirts

So with January nearly over, we’re all looking forward to the spring, which of course brings with it various sports seasons! That’s why we thought we’d show you how you can make fantastic two-colour technical t-shirts at tshirts-uk.com for your athletic academies, running clubs or sports teams.

Sport t-shirts
Technical t-shirts personalising

First things first, take a look at our vast range of bi-colour technical t-shirts in our online technical t-shirts catalogue to decide on which of the various models would best suit your needs.

We’ve got a great selection of t-shirts for sport, with short or long sleeves as well as sleeveless models, of which many are colour contrasting, meaning you don’t have to choose between two great colours – you can combine them!

Two colour technical t-shirts

This week’s example comes from a rugby team in France, who chose to motivate their team with a fantastic personalised rugby kit for this season.

The model chosen by this client is the Roly Tokyo T-shirt which is a medium range technical t-shirt for personalising, available in a variety of contrasting colours. Great for matching with your team’s colours or creating an artistic design for gyms, clubs and athletic events.

The advantages of these technical t-shirts for personalising are that they’re made of 100% polyester, are lightweight, easy to wash and quick-drying. They’re also breathable which is ideal for anyone interested in sports or outdoor activities.

One way to print your logo or design is via screen-printing. As the most cost-effective method for large and small orders, our client chose to customise their order with 2-colour and 1-colour screen-printing, both on the front and back of the T-shirts.

Screen-printing technical t-shirts
Technical tees

This Rugby club was very clever in ordering two-tone sports t-shirts so they could combine their logo with the colour of the contrasting areas. As you can see, it gives fantastic results:

Bicolour t-shirts

Things to bear in mind when personalising technical t-shirts with screen-printing:

  • There is a technical cost for each colour, therefore the fewer colours you use, the more economic your order!
  • Contrasting colours with bicolour T-shirts is a great way to get an even better result without going over budget.
  • When screen-printing sports t-shirts, the decorated area will no longer be 100% breathable.

Other methods you could use include:

  • Textile sublimation – for multicoloured designs, only on white polyester items, maintains breathability.
  • CAD-cut vinyl – for personalised names and numbers.

If you’re not sure how to print your designs, you can send them to us at no cost and ask us which would be the best way to print them. We’ll evaluate the different textile customising techniques and send you a free, no-obligation quote taking into consideration value-for-money, your audience and quality!
