Talking T’s began life in the late eighties the back room of a clothing shop in Cambridge’s eclectic Mill Road. Shirts were printed and designed here and then sold in the outdoor craft market in the city centre All Saints Gardens.
Life on the craft market was fun but very cold in the winter and in 1993 we moved the retail side to a small shop in Bridge Street near the Cambridge Quayside. This has proved a perfect spot both for sales of our own hand printed designs and as a more convenient base for some to place and collect orders.
As both the custom printing and retail sales grew we moved the production to increasingly larger industrial units. In the mid nineties arrived our first computer for typesetting text (bye bye Letraset!) and then a few years later a small embroidery machine. More printing equipment and larger eight head embroidery machines followed until in 2010 we moved into our own purpose built premises in Milton, Cambridge. With a large show room, great work space and easy parking it looks like we’re here to stay.
Although we have expanded to meet the demand for our services, we still remain a family run, friendly and approachable company. Many of our customers have remained with us from the beginning and have become good friends. Thank you all and we’re looking forward to the next 20 years!
