About Involution

State of the art in-house print and embroidery production

About Involution

We are a Leeds based printing and merchandise company. For 20 years now, we have been the leading experts in print, promotional clothing, staff uniforms, corporate gifts, and PPE.

Involution was launched back in 1999 by former blue-chip Marketing Director, Michael Ainsworth, whose vision was to innovate and elevate the merchandise and uniform industry. Now, we're proud to continue operating our services from Leeds, servicing clients right across the globe. 

Our services 


We provide companies of any size, location and sector a full range of promotional merchandise and workwear solutions with a vast range of decoration methods. Within our Leeds site, we fulfil our own in-house production from embroidery, sublimation, transfer and screen printing through our state-of-the-art machinery.


Alongside that, customers can take advantage of our order fulfilment facility to store, manage and distribute stock. We also offer a Pick & Pack service with various fast track and international shipping options.


Our Online Brand Partnership service is a free stock management portal to help companies manage their staff uniform and promotional items. The wardrobe management system allows companies to oversee their promotional stock efficiently without excessive administration and physical stock. Staff can be allocated item quantities over a set timeframe and order when they wish. The portals update the allowance automatically and produce a usage report for management. It’s an effective solution to provide flexibility in product ordering and ease in budget control.


In addition to the above, most recently, to support businesses that are reopening, we launched our custom PPE essentials kit to help employers keep their staff and customers safe onsite. Our 'Return to Work' kits are completely tailored to any given business from key PPE essentials to personalised items with the option of company branding. To date, we have helped over 3,000 employees return to work safely.

Fantastic company - very professional and friendly with competitive prices. Been using them for years for all my branded merchandise and they have never let me down, especially on the urgent deadline jobs. Highly recommended.

I have been working with Involution for well over 10 years now. The level of service I receive from my dedicated account manager Lauren Baker, is second to none. Everything I ask for is done within hours and samples required are provided next day. Lauren makes Involution a very easy business to deal with. I can highly recommend.
