With the most prestigious golfing event the ISPA HANDA WORLD INVITATIONAL currently being held at Galgorm Castle Golf Club this week. We were delighted when Mark McDonnell from MODEST GOLF MANAGEMENT contacted us in relation to some promotional garments. With a referral from the team at Galgorm Castle Golf Club who we work with on a regular basis. Mark contacted us with a deadline for turnaround on these items of less than 24 hours. We were super delighted to be able to deliver on these garments just in time for the PRO-AM Teeing off.
The event formally known as the NI Open, the most successful and best attended event on the European Challenge Tour, has been transformed into a new global event for men and women professionals. This progressive move was made possible when ISPA HANDA and long-time supporters of the NI Open, Modest Golf, engaged with organisers and bought into the long-term vision for this unique event.
The first event of its kind in Europe is sure to be one of world golf's most exciting events in 2019 where household names like Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey, Australia's Richard Green and many others will tee it up alongside stars of the women's game including homegrown talent like Leona and Lisa Maguire and Stephanie Meadow, with men and women playing the same courses, at the same time while competing for equal prize money!
The week-long festival of golf will include live music concerts at the historic Galgorm estate with many other family attractions such as the dedicated golf village; family area; coaching zones and a Junior event.

Quite recently we have been working on some bespoke items for local bands such as that from Cullybackey Pipe Band. Over the last few weeks we were approached by Amy from the band as they celebrate their centenary (100 years) to see if we could help in re-creating their logo for some celebratory clothing they had in mind. The band themselves had a pretty good idea of what they wanted so working together we were able to acheive logo as pictured centre. Embroidering this on
such items as poloshirts and softshell jackets.
Other items we have been working on were dress shirts for the guys from the Grove Pipe Band with embroidered sleeves. As you can tell the detail from these badges are so detailed being able to recreat them in embroidery is such a joy. If your band require new uniforms or is celebrating a special occasion drop us an email to email@example.com or call us on 028 256 42446 where we will endeavour to help.
We are absolutely delighted that we have had the privilege to partner with a some fabulous local schools this last school term not only on leaver hoodies but also on uniform requirements. Firstly can we thank all the local schools (Ballymena Primary, Dunclug Primary, Buick Memorial, Longstone Primary, Straidbilly Primary, Ballyclare Primary, Gracehill Primary and Groggan Primary) and particulary the primary 7 teachers themselves for their assistance in being able to deliver on their primary 7 leaver hoodies. We were greeted with many a cheer as the primary 7's received their personalised hoodies.
Below are some kind words we have been received from just some of the local schools:
Over the past six months we have been super busy behind the scenes working on establishing our new school uniform service. We understand how important it is to make school uniform buying a quick and easy process, and to enable schools to offer choice to parents when it comes to uniform supply. Our aim is to supply local schools with quality items at affordable prices thus giving the school the opportunity to raise those all important school funds.
We have had the pleasure working alongside Rikki Peters (Buick Memorial), Lawrence O'Kane (St Brigids Primary) & Peter Crabbe (Cloughmills Primary) on their 2019/2020 school wear. Can we take this opportunity to thank them personally, for their forward thinking and support on our new joint venture. Please do support them by purchasing your embroidered polos and sweaters directly from them, this not only keeps the cost at it lowest for you the parents but allows the school to invest some money back into the school for those much needed items.
