Direct to Garment Printing
Direct to Garment Printing or digital printing is the process of printing full-colour images onto garments using top quality DTG machines. You can use this technique for any type of garment, both light and dark coloured. It is also a very fast choice which can produce high-quality printed clothing within a few hours with no set-up fee.
Sublimation printing is the process of putting your own designs onto a special, transfer paper which is then heat-pressed over the top of the garment and the design is transferred onto the product. It can be only used on 100% white polyester garments. This technique is used for all-over prints and has no minimum quantity order.
CAD Cut Vinyl Printing
CAD Cut Vinyl printing is a process of cutting your design from the material chosen using a plotter and then it is applied to the garment using an industrial heat press. This technique is very similar to transfer printing, except it’s only suitable for designs which consist of one or two colours. The main advantages are no set-up costs and the easy and pace of production. This technique is mostly used for letter and numbers – which is perfect for sports kits.
Transfer printing is the process of printing your designs onto a special, transferrable vinyl material. This technique can be used on both light and dark garments. There are no set up charges, allows full-colour designs and is perfect for low-quantity orders.
