Balcony Shirts opens its first Pop-Up Shop

We're really excited to be opening our first pop-up shop later this month on 22nd July 2021. We are going to use it to advertise the things we do in the main shop, and also have some fun selling "seaside" themed items like local postcards, holiday T-shirts, hoodies, mugs, and even sticks of Uxbridge rock!

You can pre-order the seaside items HERE. All orders come with a free stick of rock and some local postcards. 

You can find us at the Uxbridge Summer Market in the center of Uxbridge on the following dates:

22nd, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th, 31st of July 2021.

It will be lovely to see you there! 


3D Puffy Embroidery - Now available!

3D puff embroidery employs an underlying foam material that lifts a pattern, creating a three-dimensional feel and appearance. Make your design literally stand out! We can sew with a variety of stitch colours and fabrics to create a huge range of variations and styles.

Email us at sales@balconyshirts.co.uk with your design idea and we'll let you know best way to acheive this look for your brand.

Bear in mind that simple letters and shapes always work best with 3D embroidery.

We recommend New Era 9FORTY caps.

Our first branded Balcony Shirts T-shirts - SOLD OUT!

We were absolutely thrilled last week, after 17 years of printing and creating T-shirts for other people, to release the first ever "Balcony Shirts" branded T-shirt.  We released them as an extremely limited run of 50, each numbered. These were printed on Fair Wear, organic cotton, in a distressed rainbow print.  We were completely blown away that they sold out in 2 hours. We will never release this design again, but if you want to be tipped off about forthcoming limited design runs, please sign up for our newsletter. Thanks so much to everyone who bought one, we were amazed!


You can now order online!

They say that necessity is the mother of invention and that has certainly been the case over the past year with our shop in Uxbridge closing for prolonged periods of time due to the pandemic. We have wanted to create a completely online experience for a long time, and this was the time to do it! You can now use our simple online designer to choose your garment, upload your design and order your print wear. You can then collect it from the shop or we can send it out to you! Don’t worry though, we are still at hand to help in the more “old fashioned” ways at the end of a phone on 01895 239111 (Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm) or on email at sales@balconyshirts.co.uk.

9th JANUARY 2019 - New Year, New Website. 

For over 15 years we've been designing, printing and selling T-shirts and hoodies from our website BalconyShirts.co.uk, but since opening our shop in Uxbridge over 9 years ago, we've been producing more and more merchandise for other people, whether they be corporations, small businesses, TV & film companies, sports teams or individuals.  Our business has evolved and the website has changed to reflect this.

BalconyShirts.co.uk is now a showcase for  some of our work, and lays out the services we offer, and also includes a catalogue of some of our more popular printable garments and items.

Drop us an email at sales@balconyshirts.co.uk if you'd like a printing quote, or if you'd just like to know more about the services we offer. Our shop is open from Monday to Saturday 9am until 5pm. 01895 239111

All of the original Balcony Shirts T-shirt designs that were available on our website are still available to purchase over on our Amazon Store, where we continue to produce the same quality merchandise with the same super-quick turnaround.
