How To Heat Print Garments for the Athleisure Market

Andy and Molly are thrilled to be back and are kicking the season off talking about one of the biggest growing markets in the industry.

The Athleisure Market.

With significant growth over the last few years and no signs of slowing down, if you haven't considered offering athleisure products as a garment decorator, now is the time.

In this episode, Andy touches on just how retail-focused the latest TriDri garments actually are. Gone are the days of producing boring blank garments ready for design. He admits to seeing the leading athleisure blank apparel manufacturer, TriDri, literally everywhere he goes. The attention to detail with user-focused elements like zips and pockets help these garments to be extremely purchasable. Garment decorators build their brands, then rebrand the Tri-Dri blanks and turn a £9-10 blank hoodie into a premium garment that's being resold at £35-45 each. Molly admits she has seen very similar garments on mannequins in popular stores such as Nike and Adidas on the high street.

After a quick look through their website offerings, it's very easy to see why TriDri are one of the best athleisure blank manufacturers in the UK & Europe.
