How Saving On Delivery Costs Can Also Benefit The Planet!

A sea freight only takes 6 weeks more compared to air freight in your delivery schedule. We recommend you to plan to avoid disappointment.

Also place big orders, as a small order cannot be dispatched by sea.

If you are able to place a large order, you can save money and your carbon footprint. If you urgently need a small order we are flexible and able to do 2 shipments (one by air freight and one by sea freight). Just ask, we are happy to accommodate your needs.

2. Save the Planet and Save the Cost of Delivery Switching to Photo Approval

Sending strike off from factory to your address is a long process and cost money and have a carbon footprint

We offer high quality immediate photo approval to check that your product satisfies all your needs.

3. Planning Helps Us to Reduce Your Products Carbon Footprint

Although we try to source fabrics, inks and dyes in the most sustainable and ethical way, planning in advance will always help us to reduce your product carbon footprint. As sustainability and ethically sourced materials are very important to us, we want to give you a vote of confidence that all our products at Supreme Creations are shipped by in the most eco-friendly and ethical way possible.

Decoding Sustainability Jargon

At Supreme Creations we know that sustainability can be confusing. There is a lot of jargon thrown about, and it’s hard to know what the hell anyone is on about. We thought it would be helpful to make a glossary of these new sustainability terms, and define them in an easy, simple way so that you may use this as a reference point when talking, reading, or thinking about sustainability.

Green Businesses

It seems today the trending topic in the business world is ‘going green’. These moves by big businesses to try and cut carbon emissions, use greener energy, and improve their effect on the environment, are all a positive movement towards a greener future. However, at a time when ‘green’ is in, we want to know how many of these claims are ‘greenwashing’, painting businesses in a positive light whereas in reality their practices are far from sustainable.

Simple patterns to print on your tote bags

A spot repeat pattern is can give surprisingly varied prints when small changes are made. Small dots give a traditional and uniform appearance. Patterns like this are great for conventional and classic designs, or for printed inner linings. Use a half-drop repeat for a more directional print. Dense coloured spots on a white background give fabric a fresh look that is perfect for all purposes – from kitchen to cosmetics.
