North Coast Watersports Surf School is based right on the North coast of Scotland, with The North Sea at it’s doorstep. Ideally placed with some of the most exciting waves the UK has to give, they offer classes on all things surfing! NCW approached us to create a run of 500 faux leather patches and labels for a new line of clothing they will be releasing. Read on to find out more about them and their experience working with Studio Dais!
The Interview With North Coast Watersports Surf School On Their Faux Leather Patches + Labels
Who are you and where are you currently based?
We are North Coast Watersports Surf School, the most Northerly surf school in the UK! We provide award winning cold water surfing experiences amongst the best waves in Europe. We’re based on the North Coast of Scotland near a wee town called Thurso.
Tell us about your brand and the industry you are in?
Our brand is all about sharing our love for watersports and the North Coast of Scotland. We grew up here and have a passion for showing off this unsung corner of the earth. North Coast Watersports is currently the only business like it in the area. We started creating our own merchandise last year which included t-shirts and jumpers with locally inspired designs printed onto them. These have been super successful!
How have your custom pin badges from Studio Dais been used to help your business?
We purchased the Faux leather patches from Studio Dais and we are really impressed! We are going to sew them onto some beanie hats we have had made and add the faux leather patches to our merchandise range. The faux leather patches give a cool leather look and are an environmentally and animal friendly alternative. They complete the beanie hats nicely and we’re excited to start selling them to our loyal customer base! Selling these extra merchandise items alongside our watersport experiences really helps us grow and get the brand name out there!
How was it working with Studio Dais?
We can’t fault the Studio Dais experience! Customer service was amazing, super quick replies and always answered our questions. The experience felt personal yet smooth and professional, we will definitely be working with Studio Dais again soon and have been looking at various products including soft enamel pin badges, custom die-struck medals and even woven patches. Watch this space!
