Clothes2order.com celebrates record festive trading


"We've seen greater demand than ever for personalised gifts"
Sam Jones



Personalised clothing business Clothes2order.com is celebrating record festive trading.

Like-for-like sales for the Christmas period were 30 per cent ahead of 2016, with the e-commerce company enjoying the busiest day in its entire 15-year history on Cyber Monday, which fell on November 27.

The Trafford Park business prints and embroiders logos and designs on to clothing, hats and other items for customers across the UK, and exports to more than 35 countries worldwide.

Managing director Sam Jones said the Christmas period trading highlights included strong growth for the company’s on-demand service, supplying UK and overseas retailers with clothing where they require a quick turnaround on customer orders.

Demand from consumers, companies and organisations for personalised and customised clothing also surged.

Among the best-selling personalised items this Christmas were hoodies, jumpers, sweatshirts, t-shirts, woolly and beanie hats, caps and aprons.

Sam, pictured, said: “We have seen greater demand than ever for personalised gifts, from Christmas jumpers to t-shirts and hoodies specially designed for family occasions such as holidays, embroidered or printed with the name of each person participating.

“Alongside this we have fulfilled many more orders from companies buying festive clothing for their staff to wear at work, and from organisations such as theatre groups and dance schools promoting their Christmas shows and events.”

Clothes2order.com created more than 20 new production jobs in line with its growth during 2017, taking staff numbers to 150. It is the fastest-growing part of Quayside Group.
