FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Please read this section! It is likely whatever question you have will be answered below!
You can read all the information below, but if you'd like some quick answers please read the following FAQs:
Do you ship to .............?
We ship worldwide. You can scroll to the very bottom of the page and click our 'Shipping' page to view detailed info of the different options, free shipping thresholds etc., but yes we ship to EVERY country on Earth.
The prices shown are in pounds sterling (i.e. GBP, £). We are unable to show other currencies due to conflicts with the belt builder. You don't need to worry about converting your currency to GBP as this will be done automatically by your bank when you purchase. The amount you'll pay in your native currency will be determined by your bank's exchange rates (you can check your bank's website for an up to date currency conversion); for a rough estimate you can use the currency converter below.
What is included in the price?
The price includes a custom design embroidered on the back of a lever belt. You can add extra options such as a custom design on the inside and also edge kote painting. If you want us to design your artwork we can do this at an extra fee. If you already have a logo or you just want text, this is included in the price of the belt.

I don't have a design can I still order?
You will need to have a design in mind prior to ordering, but it doesn't need to be perfect. You can link to images we can use; however we are unable to design artwork from scratch (i.e. free hand draw a skull etc.). The size of the area for embroidery is 30cm x 7.5cm (12” x 3”).
I can't create my exact design with the product builder!
No problem. The product builder is to give you an idea or if you either want plain text or have a design already you'd like to upload. For more complicated designs please select the options you'd like (whether that's just the outside or whether you also want inside and/or belt loop) and put any info on the boxes you think will help. After you order your belt we email you anyway and we produce a mockup for you before making anything. At this stage you can make as many amendments as possible. PLEASE NOTE: You will need to provide any imagery, or links to imagery. We do not do any drawing - i.e. you cannot request a man holding a barbell riding a unicorn unless you can find an image online. We can add coloured borders to text and arrange images into a layout but we cannot create artwork from scratch. There are websites where you can pay a few pounds / dollars for someone to do this, or spend hundreds to get something fancy.
What sort of design can I do?
Your design is going to be embroidered onto leather so it is worth bearing this in mind. Below are a few important things to note:
- Shades of colours will be simplified to solid colours (each colour needs to be assigned a thread).
- Photos can be done but they're often not great
- Text smaller than 0.7cm (1/4") looks like blobs
- uploaded imagery will need to be square on (i.e. a circle at an angle will look like an oval - it will therefore be embroidered as an oval)
- any imagery with bits cut off on the sides (i.e. the top of someone's head, the side of someone's arm) will come out like this in the design
- we don't 'draw' designs from scratch; we can put coloured borders around text and arrange uploaded imagery on a design, but not draw an image from scratch like an artist
Can you send me a mock-up of my design idea?
Without purchasing we don't do any design work. You can use the belt builder to get a rough idea of colour combinations and text designs. We will send you a mockup of your design after ordering for you to look at. This is usually about 2 weeks after ordering, but can be longer when we are very busy. Please don't panic if you don't hear from us; make note of when you ordered and the dispatch time you chose so that you know when your belt is likely to ship. If it's a week away and you've not heard from us by all means get in touch. Please also check your junk mail folder as sometimes our emails get diverted there. You are able to make as many alterations to the design as you'd like until you're happy.
How long does it take?
Belts typically take 5-6 weeks from ordering. We try to be quicker than this and if you need a belt for a special date you will need to choose the expedited option on the belt builder. Please note that if you choose the expedited option day 1 is the following working day from your order, so if you've ordered on Friday 1st the 1st day will be Monday 4th. A 1 week dispatch would therefore be Mon 11th, 2 weeks Mon 18th, 3 weeks Mon 25th and so on. This option is the time to dispatch your belt - it is not when it will be delivered - you will need to choose a delivery option which will reflect this. For example 2-3 day shipping option would mean it is delivered 2-3 days after it ships, so if you chose the 1 week option, your belt will be with you 1 week and 3 days after you order...
What colours can I choose from?
Please look at the swatches below for colours we can do.
Can you do "this" design?
We get a million emails asking if we can do a certain design. 99% of the time if it's text or a logo then yes we can do it no problem. Please have a look at the example belts we've done; we've never really had any issues. We can't do really small text (i.e. smaller than 5mm) and every image is converted to solid colours so bear that in mind (i.e. a tree with a million shades of greens will be simplified to one or two shades of green - see the below image):
What is Edge Colour?
You can choose to have the edges of your belt black. We use black vegetable tanned leather for the core of your belt (instead of natural coloured vegetable tanned leather). Previously we painted the edges black with Edge Kote, but now we use black leather. It is permanent and the black look shows through the holes and buckle, which gives the belt a really nice look.
What size do I order?
You'll need to measure yourself around your belly button, as per instructions below. If you're not sure which size to order after measuring put the measurement in the order notes and we can ensure the belt fits.
What if I change my mind after ordering?
A lot of work goes into creating a design from the spec given when ordering, with many designs taking several hours. As such an order CANNOT BE CANCELLED after it has been placed. If you have questions prior to ordering please contact us and we can answer them.
What happens after I order?
After you order we will send you an automated email asking a bunch of questions. We will ask you what you'd like on your belt, what font you'd like (please see below for choices or let us know if you have your own). If you have imagery for the design or just inspiration please send this to us. When we have that we can put your design together. Please ensure you reply to this email ASAP so it doesn't delay anything. If you don't receive this email within 24 hours please email us.
ModiFit Powerlifting Belt - Sizing Information
Sizing varies slightly for Single Prong and Lever belts. The info below shows the size range on each of the belts. Each belt has 9 holes spaced over 9.5". The measurements give the size ranges for the middle 7 holes, leaving one hole above and below the range. If you are unsure of sizing please give us a call and we'll be happy to help.
Please measure around your waist / belly button WHERE THE BELT WILL SIT. Do not rely on your jeans size / waist size as this WILL be different
TIPS: Pull the tape measure tight, DO NOT suck your stomach in.

Custom Belt Information
The ordering and design process should be straight forward - you do not need to create your design prior to ordering; if you simply want text or text with a logo you just need to email that information over to us (you'll receive an email after you order asking for files). To place your order you'll need to select the relevant options and input any details you have. You are not held to this should you change your mind; they're just for our info. After you place your order we will email you to ask for further information about your belt. At this point you can email over any imagery that you'd like on your belt. Please note, as the belts are embroidered images will need to be relatively simple. Think of logos on football or rugby shirts. We can embroider 10 different colours at once and have around 60 colours to choose from, but we can't embroiderer a picture with 85 different shades of green for example. We will then produce a mock-up for you so that you can see what your belt will look like. From this you can then make further changes until you're happy. Once you're happy and give the OK you can no longer amend your design.
At this point we get the design file converted to the file required for embroidery. This is a necessity to tell the embroidery machine how wide to make the stitches, which direction they go, how close together etc.
After this the leather is embroidered in our workshop. Once the leather has been embroidered we cut and glue all the layers together, stitch the belt and punch the holes. All of this is done in-house. We are the ONLY UK manufacturer of weightlifting belts and the only UK manufacturer of customisable weightlifting belts. Belts take 5-6 weeks to make.
PLEASE NOTE - WE CANNOT PUT COPYRIGHTED / TRADEMARKED IMAGES ON YOUR CUSTOM BELT WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN CONFIRMATION OF THE COPYRIGHT / TRADEMARK HOLDER.
LEATHER COLOUR CHOICES
There are a total of 33 colours and textures to choose from. There are 21 leather colours to choose from as well as a further 12 suedes (clay suede is also shown at number 20 in leather colours).
STITCH COLOUR CHOICES
We have 21 different colours for the stitching that runs around the edge of the belt.
Below you can see some examples of the fonts we use. We have many more and can download others (as long as they are free - if they are paid for fonts you will need to purchase the license). Some important things to remember:
- We can increase/decrease the spacing between letters if you'd like them closer or further apart
- Some fonts only come in uppercase (capitals)
- We can add colour around the font creating a different coloured border to the font
- We cannot change the shape of letters in the font
- The design area is 30cm x 8cm, so if you want images either sides of a word/name it's better to choose a narrow font
- We can stretch the font to make it wider or taller
- If you want letters embroidered small (such as the web address on the BICKLE belt in the picture) it is worth using a 'blocky' font, or a font without an outer border (like Varsity).
Capture It Clean
The space for the custom belt design is 30cm x 8cm. This is the ratio of width to height:
EXCHANGES, RETURNS & REFUNDS
We want you to be completely satisfied with your order. It is important to us that you are delighted with your purchase but if for any reason you are not, and feel the need to send the item back, we offer a 365 DAY returns policy, starting from the date of order. All we ask is that you return your goods, no questions asked, in their original state. If you are not happy or you need to change something, the easiest thing to do is to email us so that we both have a record of it. We are happy to exchange any item for you at no extra charge for UK customers (you will need to cover postage of item sent back to us). Overseas customers will need to pay for postage of the replacement item. If an item is damaged or the wrong item was sent we will usually cover return postage, but please notify us prior to sending.
Custom Belts are made to order to your specification and as such are not eligible for a refund should you no longer want it. We try our best to get a belt to you by a given time, but we make no guarantee a belt will be delivered on time. Once your design has been agreed you are no longer able to cancel your order or return it for a refund. If there is an issue in terms of quality we will fix it; if we have made your belt to the wrong specification we will either replace it or alter it; depending on which is most suitable.
For a refund you will need to return your order to us within 365 days of making your order (yes, that's 1 whole year). We aim to process your refund the same week it arrives back with us. We are a small company so we value your repeat business, so we don't want to mess you around - if you've not heard anything from us a few days after returning, just drop us an email or call and we'll check the status for you. Items being returned for a refund will need to be returned in new condition and with the original packaging.
If you would like to view our full Terms and Conditions please follow this link.
Our address for exchanges and refunds is:
Unit 7 Pyle Enterprise Centre
Village Farm Road
Village Farm Ind Est
DO NOT RETURN ITEMS PACKAGED LIKE THIS:
Your item is going through the postal network, not into space. Please be mindful of the fact that a human - not a space robot - will have to open the package and the item you're returning will be going back on sale for someone else to buy. We would very grateful if you could include the original packaging if possible.
Items are returned at your own cost. We would recommend UK customers sending 2nd class. Please note returning an order is your responsibility so it is up to you to decide which service you opt for. If the item fails to arrive with us again that is for you to take up with Royal Mail. We are not responsible for lost returns. Please ensure that you return items with a note inside with your name and order number, as we won't be able to ascertain who the order is from without this.
Please only return to this address. Our orders are dispatched by another company; returning directly to them will incur a cost of £2.50 + VAT. They dispatch thousands of orders every day from hundreds of companies so charge this fee for the labour involved in finding which company the return is for then contacting that company. To avoid this charge please send back to us directly. If you send back to the company that does our orders the charge will be debited from any refund due.
If you qualified for free or reduced rate shipping and you part return your order your order will be recalculated to see if you still qualify for free shipping. If when returning an item your order is below the free / reduced rate shipping threshold, this will be deducted from your refund. Similarly, if you used a discount code that is dependent on a certain order value, your order will be recalculated without the returned item and the difference refunded. If you ordered a bundle of products these cannot be individually returned for a refund, but we can exchange sizes.
If you ordered a weightlifting belt at £29.99 and knee sleeves at £29.99 your order would come to £59.98. If you choose free shipping (Royal Mail 48 Tracked) and you returned the belt for a refund your order would be recalculated as: Knee Sleeves (£29.99) + Shipping (£3.95), as the knee sleeves are below the free shipping threshold. Your new order would be £33.94, so a refund of £59.98 - £33.94 would be issued (£26.04).
