Embriodery F.A.Q’s

1. Why do I have to pay a setup fee?

emb-live-breathe-love-sportEvery new logo needs to be set up and digitised. This process involves converting the logo into the embroidery software, and manually mapping out where each stich will go, and in what direction & order. This process on its own can take anywhere between 2 to 4 hours to do per logo (please allow 48 hours for initial logo set up artwork to come through).
This process is only required to be done once for each logo (hence the logo set up being a once off). However, if you choose to embroider the same logo but at a larger or smaller size, new set up fees may apply as we will need to set up the new size (which requires the same digitizing process).

2. Do you have the garments or do I have to supply my own?

We can do both! If you have a garment already that you’d like embroidered on, you are more than welcome to bring in (we will check first that it can be embroidered on, and in the spot you like). We would then just charge for the embroidery itself, plus any set up fees.
Alternatively, we have a great selection of suppliers that do a range of garments and products for embroidery. If you’d like to order a garment from one of our suppliers, we would combine the price of the garment + embroidery per garment + any set up fees.

3. What is the turnaround time?

Depending on order size/ our work load, we quote roughly 1 week from logo sample confirmation. We can’t always guarantee rush jobs (as it may mean other clients orders are pushed back) but if you have a date required by, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. We will always let you know if a rush deadline is not able to be met prior to processing your order.

4. How much will this cost me?

Cost is dependent on logo size/ thread count/ how much you’re wanting embroidered etc. We will have the artwork mocked up for you first, and can quote from the artwork before processing the order.
As a guide, standard chest logos (6cm x 6cm) are roughly $5+ GST each, embroidered names (2cm) are roughly $10+GST each and our set up fee is a once off $50+GST per logo. These prices are embroidery only, and do not include any garment. Please always confirm pricing first though.
5. Are there any minimum orders?

There are NO minimum orders for embroidery.

6. Should I get this embroidered or go another option? (screen printing/ heat press/ sublimation)

Depending on what you’re looking for! If you’re looking for a chest logo, name on garment or a logo on a cap/beanie etc. embroidery is a great option. There are no minimum orders and is generally very cost effective.
If you’re wanting quite a large logo on a garment, then screen print could be the way, as very large embroidered logos may be uncomfortable. Please note, there is a min. order of 11 every time for screen print (which isn’t always achievable – especially on re-orders!)
If you’re wanting a bit more design on your garments – then sublimation is the way to go. As this is a printing technology where the ink is dyed into the material, and the garment made from scratch (as opposed to printing on top of an already made garment) – there is no limit on design/ colour! Names/numbers etc. are all included in the cost of sublimation as well. Please just note, there is a min order of 10 for the first order on most garments, and 10 every time on our compression pants.

7. Where is the embroidery done?

Previously we had all embroidery done in our factory in Melbourne, however we have now installed state of the art embroidery machinery at our Geelong H.Q for onsite embroidery.
If you are re-ordering, there may be a period of ‘change over’ to having the logos set up on our new machinery in Geelong, otherwise all new orders are embroidered at our Geelong H.Q.

8. Can you make a design for me?

We sure can! We have an expert team of graphic designers ready to help with your designs. If you don’t have a logo and require us to design or redraw a low quality logo, we can do this as well, but this will incur a re-draw fee. The fee is generally between $20-$50, depending on how much work is involved for our designer.
9. What kind of goods can you embroider on?
We can embroider on everything from shirts, jackets, hoodies, pants, caps, beanies, bags, towels and more. We’ll always inspect the garment or goods prior to embroidering and let you know if there’s any issues.
10. How do I contact you for further information?

TWP Offices Move to Bell Park

TWP SIGNAGE LOGO BLACK PLAINAfter another season of exponential growth, we have come to outgrow our beloved La Trobe terrace offices. With vision to the future and sticking to our Geelong roots, we are excited to announce that we will be moving our H.Q to a Northern Geelong location which will provide us with ample room to continue to enhance our local manufacturing capabilities.

In August this year we introduced onsite embroidery into our central Geelong offices. This move will mean we have the space to continue on this road with onsite screen printing, heat press and sublimation. For our clients this will mean faster turnaround times, increased efficiency and communication as we transition to our entire processes, from start to finish, taking place all under the one roof.
Not only is this an exciting step forward for our TWP clients, but for Geelong as we strive to have an impact on growing our local manufacturing.

The move to 33 Tarkin Court, Bell Park, 3215 will take place in the first week of November and we will be working hard to ensure a smooth transition with minimal time offline for our clients and will keep you updated along the way.

For more information, you can download our fact sheet on the move here: TWP – Move Fact Sheet

Alternatively, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us on: 1300 361 181 or you can submit an online enquiry here.

Must Read Methods for Your End of Season Review

netball-dressesThis article first appeared on Teamworks Performance on September 23, 2015.

With the season done and dusted for most clubs, it is important that all coaches start to conduct their own End of Season Review.
It doesn’t matter if you are a football, netball, basketball or any other club or team, an End of Season Review is a must.
Here are two tried and tested methods that your coaching group can use to review your season and prompt discussion for the coming season. The idea of both methods is to find areas to improve and ways to continue to build on what you already do well.

METHOD 1: START, STOP, KEEP

START: What do we need to START doing? These could be new ideas, new part of your game plan, new training methods, news ways to give players feedback, new set play, new schedule etc.
STOP: What do we need to STOP doing? Things that didn’t get the results needed- e.g. certain training methods, a part of your game plan, a team rule, a set play etc.
KEEP: What things do we need to KEEP? Things we did or introduced this year that worked or got the necessary results. These are things we MUST keep.
This method can give you a great way of looking back at the year just gone, as well as give you a good look forward to the pre-season and season ahead. Each section can create great opportunity for discussion and input from the coaching group.

METHOD 2: SWOT ANALYSIS (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats)

STRENGTHS: What are the strengths of our club/team. What sets us apart from the others? What do other clubs/teams worry about when they play us?
WEAKNESSES: What are the weaknesses of our club/team. What is holding us back? What areas do other clubs/teams look to exploit us in?
OPPORTUNITIES: What opportunities does our club/team have to get ahead of the competition? Do we have a head start in an area or an advantage we can push to use?
THREATS: What are potential problem areas we may have? Do we have anything that may hold us back next season?
This method can be very productive for giving your whole program a good check over. The SWOT analysis method can help set up your direction for the coming season and give your coaching panel a great opportunity to have strong input.

Good luck and happy reviewing!

Introducing TWP’s New General Manager

TWP SIGNAGE LOGO BLACK PLAINDear Loyal TWP Clients,

For you that don’t know me, my name is Adam Skrobalak. I am the owner, and founder, of Teamworks Performance (TWP). TWP was started from a corner desk in Belmont, Geelong with just $150; over the last 8 years TWP has grown into one of Australia’s best custom sportswear companies.

This success has been due to a number of factors; none more important than the support of our loyal clients and our fantastic staff. The support we get from clubs, both in Australia and around the world, is something that words can’t explain and this is the reason why TWP continues to grow year on year.

As some of you know, over the last 8 years, I have continued to coach Aussie rules football at a local, VFL, TAC Cup and now an AFL level. With the ongoing support of our clients and a high number of quality staff members, I have been able to continue to work my way up the coaching chain and fulfil my long term goal of coaching at an AFL club. Since 2015, I have held a part time role as the St Kilda FC ruck coach; I have applied the same hard work ethic to this role as I did in starting up TWP. As of the 1st November, this year, I commence a full time role as an assistant coach with the St Kilda Football Club.

I have been extremely fortunate to have the support of the team at TWP as I have managed both the TWP business and my coaching career. With a view to the future, I have taken this opportunity to hand over the day to day running of TWP to a new General Manager, Michael McCarthy. I will continue my involvement in the business, in an advisory and strategic capacity. Michael joins TWP after a long and successful corporate career with BP Australia and I am extremely confident that he will guide the business through the next phase, which includes a number of exciting projects. These projects will enhance our ability to maintain competitive prices and further improve our turnaround times. Michael’s contact details are as follows:

Michael McCarthy
gm@twpsports.com.au
0424 146 428

In finishing, I would like to thank you for your support and loyalty over the last 8 years; I certainly hope you will continue to support TWP.
Yours Sincerely

Adam Skrobalak
Managing Director
Teamworks Performance
