CERI Design is a reflection of many passions in my life.
I am a Graphic Designer working within the Sportswear Industry with interests in Art, Gaming, Film, Literature and Mythology.
Many people enjoy wearing sports jerseys supporting their chosen team, but now has come the chance to wear professionally made sports jerseys for supporters of games, films, TV and Literature.
My goal is to continue adding to the CERI Design catalogue new and interesting designs which will not only look amazing and be made from top quality materials, but inspire people into a new way of supporting their hobbies and interests.
The funds made from this Kickstarter will go towards producing samples of my other designs, marketing, professional photos of jerseys and developing the business as a whole.
The process of manufacturing sportswear is an interesting one and through the use of sublimation the creative possibilities are endless!
Sublimation is the process of transferring high quality artwork onto polyester using high temperatures resulting in detailed artwork that will not fade, peel or be washed away.
The material used in this project is a high quality sports grade polyester engineered to be durable, breathable and quick drying.
This material has been made in the UK and the production of the jerseys will take place in the facility I currently work at, also in the UK. This facility has been producing high quality sports clothing for a number of brands for over 20 years. This also means I can personally overseer the production of the jerseys.
Due to the sublimation process please be aware that the colours my vary slightly from that of the images.
Risks and challenges
In all honesty there is very little risk with this project. I do not need a minimum amount to begin production so anybody that wants one of these jerseys can have one.
Saying that, there are some things to be aware of;
Production time - If there is a large amount of jerseys ordered then naturally it'll take longer to manufacture, but the facility is used to high quantities so there is very little to worry about.
Mechanical difficulties - If for some reason there is a problem with the printers this may also slow the production down. If this were to happen I would make everyone aware, but rest assured that your order will still be met.
Colours - I have made a sample of the jersey and the colours have come out well, but as is the case with sublimation colours change ever so slightly depending on the day the garments are pressed. If I am not 100% happy with the look of some items I will have them remade.
Delivery - Depending where in the world you are located the delivery of these items might take a little longer than the date promised on the Kickstarter.
Rest assured that I am prepared for any of these obstacles and will endeavour to reward each backer of this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
