Embroidery is the method used for decorating fabric using a needle and thread. Embroidery is one of the oldest forms of decoration and traditionally done by hand. These days we use the latest machines and software giving us the ability to complete jobs faster and to the highest quality possible. Embroidery is the most common print method for workwear, trade wear and corporate uniforms as it has a clean and professional finish. It’s also the most long lasting print method. We can embroider a wide range of products, such as caps, bags, beanies, towels, blankets and the list goes on….
We will need to setup your file ready to be embroidered, so there will be some initial setup fees to digitise your design. Prices start from $35.
Screen Printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact.....
.....blah blah blah, we are not going to bore you with all the technical details, just think Ink on Garment = Kick ass result, great for bulk orders!
This process sees us cutting your design out of coloured vinyl or printing in full colour to vinyl and then applying it to your chosen garment via a heat press. Also known as heat transfer this is a super cost effective option for small qty orders. Great option if your garment is unable to be screen printed due to fabric type or placement. Think vibrant colours, metallics and even raised 3D effects!
Sublimation printing uses heat to essentially bring ink and fabric together as one.
First, a design is printed onto special paper. The inks that are used turn into gas when brought under heat, then combine with the fabric and permanently print onto the fabric. The effects are permanent and less prone to fading, as the ink is embedded in the fabric or substrate rather than simply laying on top like a normal print.
The longevity is a plus point, with a design that won’t crack, peel or fade. Works well with garments that have multiple design variations and colours... think sporting jerseys and polos etc
