Buxton company wins top prize for second consecutive year

Sam Hulme founded t-shirt printing company Skull Print in 2018 and after winning Custom Clothing Store of the Year for Central England in 2021/2022, the business has also won the title for 2022/2023 in the awards, organized by Corporate Livewire Prestige.

She said: “The judges told me there was no one like me and I was the clear winner.

“I can’t believe it. I didn’t think I would win when I was nominated the first time and I couldn’t believe it when I won a second time – I’m made up.”

Skull Print’s Sam Hulme has been named Central England’s Custom Clothing Store of the Year for 2021/2022 and now 2022/2023.

Skull Print makes custom band t-shirts that can be any size, color, or style with the band’s logo.

Sam, 51, said: “When bands sell t-shirts on tour they have to buy a huge run and the sizes and styles are limited and normally they rarely make a lot of money on each t-shirt.

“With me they can have any size and sleeve length they need and I also do small prints.”

Recently Sam had to take some of his bespoke t-shirts to meet an artist at Manchester airport because it was cheaper for them to buy shirts from a printer in England than to have to in the face of the new regulations on bureaucracy that have arrived. of Britain leaving the EU.

Skull Print’s Sam Hulme has been named Central England’s Custom Clothing Store of the Year for 2021/2022 and now 2022/2023.

She said, “I love what I do.

“I worked at Dewsons for 30 years in management so I have the business experience behind me, but it’s so nice to do something as a music fan for other music fans.

“I’m really proud to have won because I have to do something right and it’s so exciting to see the company continue to grow.”

In addition to printing band merchandise, Sam has expanded and also manufactures merchandise for artists and puts their famous artwork on t-shirts.

She added: ‘There is the very real and exciting but also terrifying possibility that within the next couple of years or so I will have grown out of print in my own home and will have to take up space and staff, which I never would have thought. I would be inside.
