Who We Are
A family owned and operated business who have been supplying branded apparel and corporate clothing for the past 20 years.
To be the very best and most innovative garment decorators in the UK.
What We Do
Embroidery, Screen Printing, Digital Printing, Creative Services and everything inbetween!
We pride ourselves on being a leader in our industry; delivering high quality and innovative design, with an enviable reputation and track record.
Essential was started back in 1998 as Essential Embroidery Design by husband and wife duo, George & Nicki Georgiou. Back then we focused solely on Embroidery and had just one machine. With a lot of hard work and impeccable customer service the business took off!
As we grew, we added much more than just embroidery, adding screen print, transfer print and more. We also launched a workwear division 'Essential Workwear' focusing on workwear branding and PPE supplies. Today we employ close to 60 people at our factory and offices in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, with both George & Nicki still working in the business along with their two children!
