Do you need your vest printed for the marathon? – Part 2

UPDATE – Jan 2012: We’re sadly no longer able to offer the vest-printing service. Thanks to all those that helped the rhinos by getting us to print their vests, and apologies to those who wanted their vests printed this year.

Well after an absence from my blog of a good nine months or so I’m feeling ready to come back to it temporarily. The aches and pains of the marathon have faded, I can walk properly again, but I’ll come clean – I haven’t actually run since 26th April 2009. I’m continuing to raise money for Save The Rhino through my button jewellery amongst other things.

We’re also still raising money by printing runner’s names on their vests. Beginners will be told by seasoned marathon runners that having your name on your vest really helps in getting you through the experience, simply because people spectating will read it and cheer you on! I lost count of the number of times people yelled ‘Go Becki’ or ‘Rhino Becki’ or ‘Come on Becki’ but it really helped and it was great to feel like the crowd was willing me to go on.

I posted about our vest printing services last year and since so many people are finding that old post and asking if we’re still doing it I’ve decided to post a quick update to let you all know we are still doing it, and the proceeds are still going to Save The Rhino. As before, It’s £5 per name in black or white vinyl (the same stuff that’s used on football shirts). We can also cut custom logos, and price varies depending on the colour and how complicated the logo is but starts from £7.50.

The earlier you can sort out your vest and get your name printed on it the better, not least because it’s one less thing to worry about. I wore my race top out and about while I was training on the basis that people would recognise me and hopefully sponsor me!

    Good Morning, Becki …

    I wonder if you can help me? Me and a few friends are running in the Cork City Marathon in Ireland in early June this year, and we’d like to get some running vests printed with our own logo. Having trawled through pages and pages of Weblinks, there seems to be a real problem with finding people who provide this service. I’d be delighted to make a contribution to your charity in addition to the printing costs if you could help me out – I realise it is short notice.

    Could I please ask ….

    (a) Would you consider small < 10 item orders?
    (b) Do I need to supply our own singlet’s for you to print onto, or are they from your stock? (These would need to be 100% polyester or similar, breathable fabric). If I need to ship these to you, this wouldn't be a problem at all – I'd cover all these costs to/from you.
    (c) We'd like our own logo printed and can supply all image(s) in .pdf format or similar, whatever suits you.
    (d) If you can do this, what would be the cost, and is it possible (likely?) that it could be done by the end of May?

    Thanks for your time, and good luck with your fund raising!

    Steve Nolan

    Hi Becki, this sounds like a great thing to spend my money on as well as getting my name put on my London Marathon 2012 vest. How long would the whole process take if i was to send off say on Monday (13th Feb 2012)

    Hi Cameron, I’m really sorry but we’re no longer offering this service, as per my note at the top of the blog post. Thank you for your interest and good luck in the marathon! 🙂
