'Be Safe Be Seen' Road Safety Message
These waistcoats are made of fluorescent, reflective materials which can help drivers to see you day, dusk and night. However, other factors also affect whether a driver notices you such as whether they are paying attention, their position and background colours. So, as part of the 'be safe be seen' message please teach your children this and always take care on the road... especially if you are driving.

- Size of printable area varies according to print option, position and garment size. For one-colour print, maximum print size is 18cm x 18cm. However, print needs to be sized to fit on smallest waistcoat in your order and also depends on position - we can advise you on this.
- For digital print, small print size is 14cm x 13cm. Large print is up to 14cm x 17cm.
- Print position: Back or front of waistcoat in one position (avoiding reflective bands).
- After ordering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your print requirements: text, logos, print colour, required position etc. We will liaise with you to prepare a layout for your approval before printing as explained below.
- If your print includes a logo, we would ideally need a vector image (eps or Illustrator file 'saved as outlines') but if not available a high res jpeg or other file may be suitable. All prices are 'subject to sight of artwork'. We will check your image and advise you if it is suitable. We can do minor artwork changes for no charge but if significant changes are needed we will let you know if there is a charge before proceeding.
- For one-colour text-only prints we can prepare artwork for you; just email us the text. If you require a specific font please ask.
- We will then prepare a layout and email it to you for your approval before printing the waistcoats.
- Our basic print layout service and all print screens are included in the price for confirmed orders. If you need to see a print layout before confirming an order we can do this for a cost of £30 ex VAT, which can be fully refunded against an order for that product.
- Delivery: Allow 3-4 working days for layout and 2-4 weeks for printing once layout is approved. If your order is urgent please advise us and we will let you know if we can meet your deadline.
