DIRECT TO GARMENT (DTG)

This process is where the image is printed straight onto the garment, much like a picture onto a piece of paper. The inks embed into the garment and are heat pressed to seal in the image.

This is a full colour option and works much better when printing onto a lighter coloured garment. DTG cannot be used when the garment is polyester.

The maximum width of an image for DTG is 25cm.

View our examples to see the process and how the direct to garment looks when completed.

SINGLE COLOUR VINYL

This process is specifically used whereby a very sharp crisp image is required (where a single colour is used or perhaps just text) – ideal for brands or wording – the variety of vinyl is very wide in terms of colour, thickness, texture & finish, and this is production process that can be used on all types of garment.

 

Vinyl is heat sealed to the garment using a press. The vinyl sits on the garment.

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen print is where the design is printed through a meshed screen. Similar to a stencil, areas of the screen are blocked, while the ink passes through the open areas and onto the substrate.

Each colour of a design gets its own screen and then these are ‘layered’ in the print process, until the full colour design is printed.

We can print single colours, to 3 colours.

 

Screen print has a long lasting finish and can look amazing on light and dark garments.

FULL COLOUR VINYL

This process is used where a full colour image can be printed onto vinyl and heat sealed to the garment.

 

The finish is very crisp and similarly to single colour vinyl – there is a wide variety of vinyl options.

The type of vinyl used would depend on the type of garment it is being used on, for example – a polyester garment will burn if heat sealing the vinyl, so we specifically use a vinyl that presses in 5 seconds.

This process is great for sports kits, recycled polyester, Hi-viz garments.

SUBLIMATION

Sublimation is where the design is printed in reverse onto special paper and then heat sealed to a garment – the image embeds into the fibre of the cloth and feels seamless.

Sublimation is specifically used for polyester garments such as sports kits, running tops and Hi-Viz garments.

The largest image we can print is A3 in size.

EMBROIDERY

This is the most robust way to personalise any garment, however the limitations will be on the flexibility of colours and the sharpness of the image…our embroidery machines will stitch up to 10 colours per logo.

The brand or logo image needs to be converted to a digitized file which then can be embroidered into the garment.

 

The process is slightly slower depending on the complexity and size of the logo to be embroidered.

No Heat sealing takes place on the garment in this process.

LASER ENGRAVING

We also convert images to laser files so that we can etch your image on a number of different media, such as wood, metal, stone and plastic.

 

The laser will cut up to 8mm deep, with a limit of 60cm square. This process can also be used to cut shapes or logos out of thin plywood.

STICKERS

Sticker marketing is by no means a new concept, stickers are very useful for campaigns thanks to their durable and visible appeal.

We offer both matt and gloss sticker printing. Our service is sure to meet the most demanding expectations.

 

We can help you with the design or print your personalised self-adhesive labels to help your business stand out.

 

We also offer custom vinyl window stickers, so let your imagination run wild and craft unique designs certain to impress.
