20 Years of Belief in Chevron

20 Years of Belief in Chevron

We've previously printed MVP t-shirts for Chevron, so they knew they'd come to the right place when looking for a custom design to celebrate the Club's 20 year anniversary.  Chevron Action Flash is a team that has a lot of loyal members, past and present, all united and motivated to represent one of the top teams in the UK, all proud to wear the Chevron name and the Rainbow colours on their shirt. 

Their team ethos says it all: "focus on playing with the kind of people the players want to hang out with, and to strive to reach the highest level of ultimate possible." 

20 years of such a great club deserves a special print to celebrate their achievements and fuel more hard work and commitment on the pitch. Their team ethos says it all: "focus on playing with the kind of people the players want to hang out with, and to strive to reach the highest level of ultimate possible."

Design & Print

With David (our very own David from Glower, yes!) having joined Chevron over a decade ago, he had first hand inspiration to produce a unique and fitting design to commemorate this milestone.

The Chevron logo includes many colours, which can be a challenge to screen print, but the Rainbow is part of Chevron's legacy. So every single item produced has been coloured in with a brush by hand, for each item and each shade of the logo.

"...to run yourself into the ground for each other and to win together; as a team, is what got us through the chaos. There is no greater feeling than winning with your friends." 

Yes, it was a time-consuming job - but hey, we're talking 20 years of working hard on the pitch, seeing victory and defeat, being frustrated and thrilled with joy, all with dedication to the team effort and team spirit.

The story

The inspiration for the design: "Chevron follows in the footsteps of the founders - some of the Greats of UK Ultimate. We hang of their coat-tales. They led, we followed." says David. "The path wasn't always straight forward, planned out or logical. The overriding desire to play for your mates, to run yourself into the ground for each other and to win together; as a team, is what got us through the chaos. There is no greater feeling than winning with your friends."

Because this was a bespoke print that was made available through our shop, we offered a wide variety of garment choices, making sure people ended up with something they truly loved. The sweatshirts were definitely proven popular, allowing players to bring a bit of their hobby, what they spend all of their free time and weekends caring about, into their everyday lives.

Wear with pride

And of course we're truly thrilled to see our design, created from scratch with a passion for sports and true spirit, worn with proud around our group of friends, at the pitches or just out and about.

"...allowing players to bring a bit of their hobby, what they spend all of their free time and weekends caring about, into their everyday lives." 

A big congrats to Chevron Action Flash for their past results and present spirit. Keep up the good work boys!
