Screen Printing

A process using inks to print direct on to garments, each colour using a separate screen on a printing carousel. This method is used for T.Shirts, Polos & Sweatshirts where a larger image is needed or more than a 1 colour design. Screen printing produces very accurate reproduction of a design. By mixing inks pantone colours can also be matched closely.

Embroidery

Computerised software is used to produce a digitised design, up to twelve colours, run on a state of the art industrial embroidery machine producing a very permanent logo, ideal for workwear that will go through an industrial wash. This method is flexible for difficult fabrics that cannot always be screenprinted, as well as giving a quality finish adding value to a garment.

 

This method is mainly used for smaller images such as a  company logo  or club badge on  a polo or sweatshirt , although larger images can be embroidered on the backs of garments this can be expensive as more stitches in a design will mean it will take longer on the embroidery machine, very often a combination of  an embroidered logo on the front left breast will be used with a screenprinted or heat applied logo on the back to keep costs down.

Heat applied film

An indirect method of cutting film on a plotter using computerised software to produce an outline of a design.The film is then weeded out to leave the image on a backing sheet ,the film is then pressed onto the fabric using a heat press, the backing is then removed to leave a permanent image on the garment.This method is ideal for smaller orders , one off personalised shirts,  or numbering sports kits.There is a good range of basic colours but if colour matching was important then screenprinting would need to be used.
