“I know it’s tragic but I’ve always loved merchandise and team uniforms”
Because let’s face it looking professional, as a unified group can really give your business, club or school team that edge.
First impressions count and a uniform can really show that your team has got it together. As a business it can instil confidence in customers, for sporting clubs it can provide a presence on the field and for schools it can lift student pride. At Team Apparel it’s my mission to help teams easily look the part, so they can play the part.
My Apparel Destiny
Now with a surname like Clothier (no lies) clothing was always going to be my game. But my lifelong obsession with merchandise was undoubtedly inspired by those transfer t-shirts popular in the 80’s.
On our family holidays to the Gold Coast we’d venture into the custom t-shirt store on Cavill Avenue and I would painstakingly select the best transfer to be heat pressed on to a t-shirt (navy of course)! However my business interests first took shape when I was 15 years old. Playing on our school volleyball team I enthusiastically volunteered to organise team t-shirts for the Schools Cup. I sourced a supplier and had my cousin ‘draw’ a logo – it was the 90’s so it was the true old school way – no computers the screen printing was done by hand!
We actually won that tournament and I truly believe those team t-shirts played a part. But the buzz I felt from handing out the uniform had me well and truly hooked. Ever since I made sure we had merchandise for anything and everything I was a part of – school groups, sports teams, events and even my little racquet restringing business.
Before long I became the ‘go-to-person’ for organising uniforms and in 2008 I officially opened Team Apparel.
Clothier by Name. Clothier by Game
Starting Team Apparel has definitely enabled me to live up to my name as a Clothier. While my knowledge, processes and product range have significantly improved since my 15 year old beginnings, my enthusiasm still remains the same.
As a people person I enjoy sharing my experience, guiding customers through the process and basically making the “job” of organising uniforms easier.
I have everything needed to kit out your team, with access to a massive range of apparel and merchandise from more than 20 trusted suppliers.
You don’t get good service or proper merchandise from a few clicks on a website. I commit to delivering a personal service throughout the whole process.
As the owner of Team Apparel I will communicate with you in person so I can understand your individual team needs, your brand goals and your time and budget constraints to deliver the best solution for you. Let me make your job easier by becoming your valuable ‘go-to-person’ for your business, club or school team for years to come.
“Working with Team Apparel is a delight! The way they focus on customer service and work with you from concept to design to production is just great – I find they keep me organised and on track to ensure that I get the outcome that I need in the set timeframe and budget. I have worked with several other companies in the past, but since I started working with Team Apparel I haven’t considered using anyone else.”
