Mum prints Nike logos and sticks them to Primark clothes to make ‘perfect dupes’

A mum saves money on her teenage son's clothing by printing Nike logos on Primark t-shirts to create perfect looking dupes. Kat Burman, 37, doesn't see the sense on spending loads of cash on sports gear when her son "only cares about playing football and running around with his friends". The beautician got a GBP300 Cricut machine - which makes iron on designs - and decided to put it to use on her son's wardrobe.

She makes Nike ticks and logos and irons them on to GBP2.50 Primark t-shirts, as well as his plain PE bag. Savvy Kat also used the hack to turn alter a genuine Nike coat, covering over a pink logo - the only one in stock - with a white motif. She got the idea after using the kit to decorate facemasks, so started doing it on clothing this summer holiday.

Kat said: "There is no point splashing out on expensive branded goods when all my son cares about is playing football and running around his friends - his clothes don't last long. Honestly, nobody can tell the difference and he loves them. "The coat is actually Nike but they only had one with a pink tick left in stock, so I printed over the pink with white."

Her teenage son also has ADHD, making him more particular when it comes to fabrics and 'tags' on clothes, she said.

She taught herself to use the gear using YouTube.
