Why Evolution Branded Clothing?
A reputation built on relationships
Background: From the dinner table to the dance floor
Evolution was started back in 2006 from the humble beginnings of a computer and vinyl cutter on the dining room table in Jay’s house.
Jay had worked in the print industry for many years, and decided that it was time to break out on his own to allow him to do things his way, whilst spending more time with his ever-expanding family.
The dining room table was upgraded to a garden office in 2007 to accommodate the fast growth of the company, along with the addition of embroidery and full colour printing to the printing arsenal. It wasn’t too long before Evo had outgrown the garden office, too, and had to move to its current premises: a large industrial unit, boasting 3 separate functional rooms, separating the embroidery, print, and office areas.
Kiki joined the Evo team in 2013, enriching the business with her bubbly personality and infectious sense of humour. Her broad experience of the print and embroidery industry is probably worth mentioning, too. Kiki and Jay continued the “Great Journey”, transforming Evo into the successful business it is today over the course of the last few years. Evolution’s client base now numbers over 1500, and the company has an outstanding reputation for one-to-one customer service.
Outstanding, personal customer service
Evo aspires to achieve a gratifying experience for customers of all sizes that we feel other companies often lack, by providing one-to-one service to be proud of, offering “no minimum order” on simple jobs and providing a fast turnaround of 7-10 working days. We’re also very relaxed with our working hours and will gladly talk to customers at almost any time of day if it helps to alleviate their worries.
Since its inception, Evo has only had a select few members of staff through its doors, not because we’re a horrible company to work for (we hope!), but simply that we believe every employee must have a passion for the company and the work we do that really enhances the workplace environment, the business itself, and most importantly, the customer’s experience.

I first walked into Evolution back in 2013 when I needed a few t-shirts printing, and I've pretty much been there ever since! After working in the industry a few years prior I was once again excited by it and instantly wanted to work alongside Jay in what was a great and still growing business. The vibe is relaxed, even when we're super busy, and the professional relationships I've built over the years with clients makes it a joy to walk into work each day.
Most of the time I answer the phone I'm attempting to mask a laugh.

VIVA Le Dance havr used Jay and the team at Evolution for over 2years now, the service is top quality. Jay and his team are always helpful and on hand to assist in any last minute extras or with design ideas and product samples.

We are always receiving comments on our dance school Team wear and we are very proud teachers, pupils & parents!
We were recommended to Evolution by an existing customer early this year, just as we started our charity. I had searched round and found that Evolution were competitively priced, so decided to try them out. We were so glad we did. All sweatshirts and t-shirts are of high quality, and they make such a statement and impact when we are out and about representing the charity. The customer service is excellent, even when I change the sizes and order size last minute! Have recommended the company to friends and other businesses, because of the service, quality of product and quick turnaround of the order. Very Happy.
Fast, reliable and brilliant quality. Evolution provide Glenlyn Academy with everything we need for all of our branded dancewear, uniform and accessories. With super-quick turnaround times I can always rely on Jay and his fantastic team to be on hand to help design and produce all of our branded products. Fast does not mean compromising on quality; the team at Evolution have an eye for detail and I know every one of their products sent to us will be of the highest quality.
Jay and the Evolution team have been absolutely phenomenal in terms of service and the quality of merchandise they supply. They’ve proven to be really reliable and have catered for our needs as a performing arts school. Thoroughly recommended!
