Where it all began.

Elite Clothing was founded in 1989 by Pauleen Soderqvist. After studying Business and Finance over 3 of Tresham College's sites in Northampton, Corby and Loughborough, Pauleen took the initiative to redesign the college logo. Her artistic flair and sound business awareness came together to create a successful range of merchandise that was distributed throughout the Student Union.  


3 decades later, Pauleen is still using her talent for branding to create high quality custom clothes and merchandise. Alongside her partner Alan Gibson, Pauleen has developed Elite Clothing into a vibrant family run business that is at the forefront of an embroidery and digital printing revolution. 


No longer just a silk screening company, Elite Clothing is now a one stop shop for bespoke clothes printing and embroidery with services in Screen Printing, Embroidery, and Full or One colour Transfers.

Where they are now.


For the last 31 years Elite Clothing have made their home in the retro themed Victorian shoe factory, rambling across 4 floors of pure history.  All departments are managed in-house, with a highly experienced and creative art department, bustling embroidery workshop and printing production rooms, where they create custom Workwear Uniforms, School Uniforms, Fitness, Gymnastics and Promotional Clothing.


Elite has over 150 brands and over 7,000 products that can be uniquely customised to create any kind of personalised clothing or branding merchandise you need.



Committed to quality.


The Elite team prides itself on providing the very best customer service. As experienced business owners, they understand the challenges faced by their customers, whether they are a one man band or a large blue chip corporate company.  As well, their strong family values mean they always go out of their way to develop a good relationship with clients, making sure to listen to their unique needs and developing an image that works for them. 


In the end, their goal is to provide custom printing and embroidery services that will enhance their clients business, school, club, association, or even one off custom gifts and personalised clothes for birthday parties, hens and stag dos.
