FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

For Clubs & Associations

Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions for Clubs & Associations ! This is where we answer the most common questions in order to provide you with clear and useful information.

Having your outfit fully personalized involves creating a model (Mock-up) specific to each person. Who says personalization, also says digital printing in sheets, sublimation, then personalized printing for each order.

To keep our prices competitive and accessible to everyone, small budgets, small and large clubs, we ask for a minimum of 10 pieces per product group “tops” and “bottoms" clothes.

  • For example, for the “tops clothes” group, you can order 4 short-sleeved jerseys + 3 long-sleeved jerseys + 2 thermal jackets + 1 windbreaker. This makes a total of 10 “tops”.
  • Another example, for the “bottoms clothes” group, you can order 4 men’s shorts + 2 women’s shorts + 1 women’s tights + 3 men’s tights. That makes a total of 10 pieces in this “bottoms” group.

We do not require any minimum per model but an increase applies below 5 identical pieces.

You have an unlimited number of possible colors on your model.

Our technical sales representatives are there to support you in your project. Do not hesitate to contact the manager of your sector and request a quote. He will be able to advise you, study every detail with you, precisely quantify your request and offer you the best solution. Our prices include design fees (Mock-up).

We understand that every club has its specific needs when it comes to customizing outfits, whether for cycling, triathlon, trail running, athletics, running, rowing or cross-country skiing. This is why we are here to help you make your personalization project a reality.

So that our graphic designers can work on your design, we ask for an amount of 150 euros including tax in advance, but rest assured, these costs will be deducted from you when you order products, from a minimum of 10 pieces.

Several possibilities are available to you to create your club outfit design :

- You have the freedom to draw freely using our sketches available on each item sheet.

- You discuss directly with your dedicated sales representative what you want and the latter will refine your request and transmit the information directly to our team of graphic designers

You will then receive a mock-up that you can adjust according to your preferences (three fixes included). Do not forget to provide us with your initial request with your logos in illustrator format (.ai) or in high resolution (300dpi minimum). We're here to bring your personalized club outfit ideas to life, so let us design your outfits, and we'll take care of the rest!

Discover all our tips for best maintaining your POLI products and maximizing their longevity!

In order to best preserve your clothes, and to avoid damaging the fibers of your POLI clothing, here are some tips:

- We recommend that you do not mix your POLI garment with other garments (especially garments with Velcro fasteners which could get caught and damage the fabric of your POLI garment).

- Remember to close the various zippers or other hooks on your POLI clothing, to prevent them from getting caught on other pieces of fabric.

- Choose a gentle detergent, suitable for synthetic fabrics. And above all, ban fabric softeners when washing your POLI clothes because they directly attack the technical fibers of your products. Choose washing cycles designed to wash delicate textiles, as well as a washing program with a maximum temperature of 30° or hand washing in cold water.

- We strongly advise against ironing your POLI clothes or putting them in your dryer, as this could cause considerable and irreversible damage to your POLI clothes.
