EMBROIDERY

Today embroidery is the most popular form of decoration. Logos are digitised using specialist software enabling our embroidery machines to embroider a custom logo directly onto a garment.

The embroidery becomes part of the garment and is therefore very long lasting and should last as long as the garment itself.

Thread:

Embroidery thread is available in a wide selection of colours and we can normally match thread colour to pantone references very closely.

3D Embroidery:

This can be a very effective form of personalisation that has a striking effect as the embroidery is raised from the garment itself.

Normally 3D embroidery is used on caps and the front of hoodies, however not all designs are suitable for 3D embroidery, our sales team will be happy to advise you further.

PRINT

There are many forms of print that can be used to personalise garments.

Print is generally used where embroidery would not be suitable or cost effective due to the size of the logo.

Vinyl Printing:

Vinyl printing is a technique whereby the logo or text is cut using a specialist machine and using vinyl material. Then the vinyl is heat sealed directly to the garment.

Vinyl printing is suitable for a multitude of garments including t-shirts , polos, hoodies, jackets and caps.

The vinyl material we use has excellent opacity and elasticity, perfect for sports and leisurewear decoration.

Sublimation Printing:

This process uses a specialist ink to form a permanent bond to polyester rich fabrics. The result is a premium full colour photographic quality image that will not crack, peel or wash away.

Sublimation dyes are not opaque and therefore the printable garment needs to be white or pastel colour.

Screen printing is only available for runs of over 100 garments.
