Full details here, but feel free to ask any questions
The information below applies only to the synchronised swimming / artistic swim customers
1. PAST DESIGNS
If your synchro team needs swimsuits between 5 and 10 pieces, we can offer you a past, ready made design to suit your theme, and here is how the the process works:
a. Tell us your theme and ask us about past designs, and then choose designs from a country that is not your own country;
b. The designs then can be transferred to any other templates, and are still considered past designs;
c. For the vector file designs, colours can be replaced and still be considered past designs (please ask);
d All designs can be used in a different country than the country initially made for;
e. Min orders for these designs is 5 pieces;
f. The following prices apply for designs ordered between 5 and 9 pieces (inclusive):
g. Due to numerous inquiries from customers regarding solo / duet swimsuits (and the impossibility to order five pieces of the same design and colour, for different teams, in different countries, and all at the same time) all prices for 1 -4 swim costumes will include an administrative fee. Also bear in mind that postage for one / two suits can be up to £25 directly from the factory, by DHL..
2. NEW DESIGNS - FROM SCRATCH (Prices on the Clubs page apply + designer fees)
2.1. Tell us your ideas and give us a good design brief
A good brief could reduce drastically the time spent by the designer and therefore reduces the cost of the design. One hour of designer work is spent on one simple version (based on a photo or a vector image that is just a case of image transfer) to your exact specifications / brief, necessary amendments and the production file. If your design has to be made from scratch (drawing every line) or the designer has to do lots of research, then time spent will go up and in some cases it can take 2, 3 or 4 hours of designer work for your design to be completed. Please bear this in mind! The better the brief, the shorter the designer work time. Don't forget that even if you send us a drawing, the designer has to make it a digital file and at the end, she needs to make the production file. If you need any help, I can provide you with sample design ideas, just ask. Price for designer work will be charged at €35 / hour;
2.2. Choose templates and size your team members
We have an extensive range of templates that can be customised, see templates below. We recommend you start with your favourite shape, but if you change your mind, we can transfer it to your newly chosen one! At this stage we will send you the samples kit and also the fabric colour sample (see photo in Templates). The screen resolution colours are lighter than the fabric shade, so we don’t recommend you choosing the colours without seeing the fabric colour sample. Some patterns that are not vector files (JPEG / Photo) cannot have the colours replaced, but we will send you a photo of your design printed on fabric. There will be no sample suits made.
For sizing we recommend all club members trying on the size kits, which will be posted to you as soon as you decide what pieces you would like as part of your kit. For your convenience you can download the size charts for the most popular pieces, but please use them only as guidelines: see Size Charts
2.3. Place your order (min quantity 10 pieces)
The design needs approved before ordering.
The swimming costumes are of highest quality and are manufactured in a modern EU facility. The fabrics used for the swimwear are chlorine resistant and fully lined in black or white: black lining for white background designs and white lining for neutral or dark designs.
One of the advantages of ordering our swimwear is the fact that our Bladeback and Openback fully lined swimsuits come in “in between sizes” for a better fit (from size 24 up to size 30). Sizes available are from size 20 to size 40. Synchro Zipperback suits are only available in sizes 22 -36, but for bigger sizes you can use the similar template of Waterpolo suits with double fabric lining and sturdier zipper.
After the order is placed, we will be sending out our invoice which will be due to be paid strictly before the order is dispatched. It takes only 3 - 4 weeks to receive your order (depending of the type of delivery needed: Express or Economy).
Please note the prices listed on the website at the time of ordering, are the prices you will pay. Prices can change without notice, but it will not affect your current order, even if an invoice wasn't issued yet.
