I wd like to get one as a gift for someone. They get great encouragement on races when their name is called out (don’t we all?!) and having a running vest with their name on it would be great! I see people wearing them in photos of races. But can’t work out where on earth i cd buy just one from!!
Local print companies will print them on really cheaply. Our club has a local deal - £1 per letter. Some people don't like their name on so they don't get abuse when running. It's quite intimidating if you are alone and a gang of pissed "blokes" start taunting you and use your name. You might want to drop a few hints first to see if this person would like it. If so, it's a fab idea!
I would get a really nice Nike (or preferred brand) running vest and then use the iron letters. Every time I've done a charity run, they've sent their branded vest with iron on letters - it's looked great in the end ! (Great gift btw)
You can get them for under a tenner on eBay, I've had lots this way. You choose from a vast range of colours and fonts, and they can print both sides. I can't remember the seller name but they primarily do work uniforms and it's three letters, something like WTD workwear.
