ON CAMPUS UNIFORM STORES

Bob Stewart is an experienced operator of On-Campus Uniform Stores, operating in Victoria, Tasmania, NSW and the ACT.

We understand that all schools are unique and have different needs.  Bob Stewart can tailor a uniform solution to best meet the needs of the school.  

We are very conscious that for many students and parents the experience of buying their uniform for the first time impacts strongly on their first impression of their new school.  It is essential that this be a pleasant, friendly and professional experience.

Embroidery for Blazers

My school has given my son / daughter an award to be put on his/her blazer. What do I need to do?

Simply bring your son or daughter’s Blazer into your usual Bob Stewart store or outlet. Please make sure:

  • That all the pockets have been emptied

  • That the blazer has been dry cleaned (for occupational health and safety reasons)

  • That the blazer is clearly named

If your school has sent you a letter about the award you must bring it with you. Some schools do notify us by email of the awards given out. If you are unsure please bring your letter!

What is involved in having the embroidery done?

When you bring your Blazer in we create an order for you so we can trace your job through each stage in the process:

  • We remove the pocket from your blazer and send it with its paperwork to the embroiderer

  • The embroiderer puts the award(s) on the pocket. This involves setting up each separate award on the computerized embroidery machine and clamping the pocket in place for accurate placement. It is a time consuming, fiddly process.

  • The embroiderer sends your pocket back to us.

  • We match your pocket up with its blazer and send them out to our tailor to have the pocket sewn back in the blazer

  • We collect the blazer from the tailor and notify you by text message it is ready

How long does all that take?

We usually quote two weeks to complete the process. During quiet times it may take less, however we are unable to guarantee shorter completion times.

What does it cost?

We charge $13.50 per insignia or $16 for titles above eight letters. The cost of sewing the pocket back on the blazer is $30.

Some school awards require a new pocket be used. These special award pockets cost from $20 to $50 each (excluding the cost of sewing on the pocket) depending on the design and work involved.

The policy of some schools is that a higher level award for the same activity replaces a lower level award on the pocket. In this instance the lower level award must be removed before the higher level award can be embroidered. The cost of removing embroidery is $15 per insignia. Unfortunately this is a time consuming process that has to be done by hand to avoid damaging the pocket.

For example: John is a good footballer. He has been previously awarded a silver insignia “XVIII” for Football. John has now received a gold award for football. In this case we have to remove the silver “XVIII” before we can embroider “XVIII” in gold.

I am a good sewer. Can I sew the pocket on myself? (Some friends or relatives are great sewers too!)

We are happy for you to sew the pocket on yourself. You then save $30.

Is the pocket sewn back onto the blazer exactly as it was?

For the pocket to be sewn back onto the blazer exactly as it was it has to be hand sewn. Due to cost and time constraints we are unable to offer hand sewing of pockets. If you would prefer to have your pocket hand sewn please let us know when you bring your blazer in. We will organize the embroidery. You can then take the blazer to the tailor of your choice for hand sewing.
