PrintClever has experienced a number of challenges and expectations over the past eight years

PrintClever, a print company based in Swindon, Wiltshire, has reported it is on track for turnover of £8m after launching a direct-to-garment (DTG) factory in which around 3,000 garments are produced each day.

Following investment of around £500,000 into its premises including the purchases of multiple high-end pieces of machinery, the founders are proud of the “incredible journey” they have experienced in expanding the company after its big step into the DTG market.

Starting out as a small business operating from a home garage, the business now operates from a large factory which employs 80 members of staff which increased to 130 over the festive period to deal with seasonal demand.

Since its expansion, the team has achieved major deals with household names, music corporations, gaming companies as well as a Hollywood film studio.

Founder and chief executive officer Ryan Acres, comments: "Back in March 2022, we took a bold step forward into the direct-to-garment industry, buying our first Brother machine.

"Fast forward 20 months and we've really made our entrance into the market, becoming one of the UK's largest print-on-demand garment manufacturers. It's been an incredible journey.”

The company invested in various folding, embroidery, and pre-treatment machines as well as four Brother GTX Pro Bulks and four Brother GTX600s. 

Acres adds: "When I first started out in print, I set up in my parents' garage and serviced a few local customers. I always had big dreams for the business, but I never thought it would reach such heights and we're only at the beginning.”
