Fancy Joining the Golden Finishes Team?

Golden Finishes has been busier than ever recently, following the successful launch of our new website and exhibiting at this year’s Printwear & Promotion.

With customer demand for our products and services on the up,  we need some help!

We’re hiring!

We are looking for someone to join our design team. You would be responsible for creating artwork/designs for our customers and machine ready files, so we really need someone with experience in embroidery software packages, other print related design software and possibly a bit of website design/build knowledge.

If you fancy working in a fast paced environment where no two days are the same? Then Golden Finishes is the place for you!

The team here are a crazy bunch, but we love what we do! (And of course we will reward you well financially).

Watch this space… We thought we would post the job opportunity on here first & foremost! The full job description and advertisement will be up and running very soon but for the first chance to apply simply email john@goldenfinishes.com to find out more!

Badges come in all different shapes, sizes and styles - embroidered, printed, woven and wire just to name a few. Our team have created badges (patches) call them what you like for all sorts of purposes. We’ve seen it all…. everything from the weird & wacky to the just plain wonderful!

And just when we thought we have seen it all, it was announced this week that Scout badges are to undergo a major revamp bringing them into 2015. Out with the old and in with the new – traditional badges such as wood-whittling, blacksmithery and much more are no more. The introduction of up to 250 new badges for activities such as computing, photography, philanthropy will make the traditionalists gasp…. but we are naturally biased always looking for new designs for badges.

This story got us thinking, being self-confessed ‘Badgeaholics’ we are keen to see badges being worn wherever we turn – which sadly is not the case anymore. Badges commonly mark achievements & rewards and we just want people to show off their success (and, of course their badges).

Despite textile businesses using a more modern approach to textiles & design seeking innovative ways to stand out from the crowd and create the latest trend, we believe there will always be a place for badges. Badges bring a sense of sentiment, tradition & heritage – there is normally more to a badge than it being simply a badge. It marks an event, a memory, or an achievement of yours…

The times may be changing, but we are not! We aim to provide customers the same high-quality badges we have been producing for over the last 25 years using our same traditional approaches.

For more information on badges and how we can help you create the perfect badge for you just get in touch on sales@goldenfinishes.com or call 029 2074 1650 today!

Over the last 25 years we have continuously invested in the latest technology to keep up with the industries evolving demands and this year’s no different. We understand that the textile industry is a pretty rapid one –the competition is fierce with customers demanding more than ever before. The bars been raised in the past 18 months by both our customers and the industry itself.

It may be difficult to keep up with for most but we’re using all out experience, skills and technology to not just follow the trends but set them.

We decided to significantly invest in automating our Digitizing to take some of our Golden Finishes products to the next level, a higher standard than ever before, so we are delighted to announce our recent investment in the latest Wilcom DecoStudio e3 Software.

As we have said over the last 25 years we’ve continued to invest in the latest technology… and we plan to continually invest for many more years to come.  After all, all of our products require some piece of software, hardware or technology somewhere along the line!

We plan to have the Wilcom software up and running at Golden Finishes HQ ASAP. Combining our experienced staff (they’ve been in the industry since it’s pretty much begun) with the latest technology, we can be confident in guaranteeing we can bring you the best digitized products in the trade for many years to come!

Here at Golden Finishes we provide a lot of items perfect for the textiles industries. Our sashes are one of the most popular products, we personalise and tailor sashes to match every occasion. We create sashes for promotional purposes, hen parties, beauty pageants and much more for both public and trade customers....

We know all about sash's but we thought we'd share a little bit of history with you...

The first sashes date back to the early 1800's (when we probably started making sashes) and formed part of the royal uniform (regalia) indicating authority above normal civilians. This was in a few years time copied by leaders across the globe in lesser countries without royalty looking to establish authority, with the main exponents being presidents and mayors.

The late 1800's saw sashes become all about authority with many armies including the British, American & Foreign Legion adopting them for senior officers to differentiate themselves from the crowd.

Let's fast forward to the current day... Sashes are still worn by namely royalty and senior officers at formal occasions to represent rank and commemorate achievements but the focus on sashes in the 20th century became on 'Corporate Sashes' or as we like to call them 'Promotional Sashes', they became popular at shows, trade events, parties and pageants. 

Here at Golden Finishes, we know all about out product and what makes them great. We even consider ourselves the go-to place for sashes for any need.

Our personalised sashes are as popular as ever. With a wide range of sashes for all occasions, we have something for every need. Don't hesitate to get in touch to see how we can help you today!
