Custom Sportswear – How it works

Cyclone custom

Ask for a Free Quotation

Price is dependant upon 4 main factors:

  • Quantity of items
  • Quality of fabric and trimmings eg. zip-length, padding etc
  • Re-orders of a specific design are cheaper than first-time orders
  • Type of branding (sublimation printing, plastisol, videoflex or embroidery)
  • Please note: With sublimation printing the number of colours does not affect the pricing. Cyclone quotations have no hidden costs with regards to artwork or set-up cost (recreating complex logos and artwork could incur costs)
  • At Cyclone you always deal directly with the factory! No middle man, no import duties!
Design Time

Cyclone has an in-house design & art department

  • Design costs are included in your quotation
  • We encourage clients to present us with design ideas
  • Logos, corporate and specific graphics will need to be in a format that will produce a high quality final artwork for printing on a full size garment. To achieve this quality we require either Vector based graphics which offer us the best opportunity to manipulate and scale the graphic or in the case of photographs and 3D-type images we will require high resolution digital images
Sizes, Sexes, Colours & Numbers

At this stage the ball is in the clients court. To start & fulfil any order we need the following:

  • Sizes needs to be determined. We have samples for clients to try on and we also supply sizing charts where we will require our clients to take personal measurements to determine size
  • Cyclone boasts a wide range of sportswear for women. Please do not force women into men-specific cuts
  • Colours is the name of our game. Pantone or CMYK colour values are the standard in the printing industry. Although not all colours can be matched 100%, most can be matched with great accuracy. We can also print fluorescent yellow and pink if required.
  • We need to know the volumes/numbers of each item required
  • Please note: Cyclone offers to print (free of charge) a fabric sample or colour representation of the design for sign-off
Confirmation of Order
  • Once we have the exact number of items to be ordered we prepare a confirmation of order which the client has to approve
  • At this point the client will also be quoted on delivery costs if any. Our factory is in Parys, Free State. Orders can be collected at our factory or at Johannesburg offices


  • Cyclone charges a 50% deposit on most jobs
  • An approved Order Confirmation, signed-off design, colour proofs (if required) along with Proof of Payment will kick start production


  •  Depending on the season, Cyclone takes 4-6 weeks to deliver
