In general, embroidery is considered a nicer and classier way to present a design. An embroidered logo is the preferred way to decorate a garment with a logo by many companies. Due to thread having dimension, an embroidered logo ends up being three dimensional. In addition, embroidery thread is coated and therefore has a sheen that helps the colours pop to attention.
Screen Printing is an eye catching and effective way to promote your business. It is a widely used technique as it allows the printing of large and often detailed designs onto garments in vivid colours. If you need to do a large full-front or full-back design on a garment – screen printing is the best choice.
Applique is a sewing technique in which patches of fabric are cut and layered on a foundation of fabric and then stitched in place either by hand or with a machine. The edges of the design are then turned over or covered with decorative stitching. Applique is used worldwide as a decorative technique for banners, clothing, and display items.
A heat set print is the standard method we use to put a simpler design onto our garments. If you are looking to print plain text, names, or numbers a heat set print may be the best method for you. We have templates of pre-selected fonts for customers to choose from making this process quick and effective.
Sublimation is the process of creating a custom uniform, all designs and colours selected are printed into the garment to create an imaginative and unique design specific to your desires. Sublimation is offered in four specific 100% polyester fabrics and we allow customers the opportunity to size up their teams. The last step is a computer-generated graphic for you to review and make changes. You can get more info on sublimation under the ‘DESIGN YOUR OWN’ tab.
A digital transfer is a service we offer when a design is too complex in detail to screen-print – such as a photograph, or when a customer would like a logo placed in an uncommon position on a garment. This image is instead printed and applied to the garment through a heat transfer.
