Types of Printing
We can advise on which of the following methods best suits your requirements.
There are four elements to screen printing costs: artwork, film, screens and printing. The film and screen cost depends on the size of your artwork and the amount of colours in your print. We output your finalised artwork to film so we can develop the screens for printing. This method of printing is widely used for small to large runs depending on individual requirements.
Great for items that can not be directly screen printed but do require a bonded ink print. Also ideal for clothing with multiple fabric layers such as jackets and also sport bags and some caps.
These are heat pressed onto the garment, best suited to small runs where multicolour screen printing would be expensive to setup or fine detail prints are required on garments/promo products that are unable to be directly screen printed.
Heat pressed onto garment as above but using one colour vinyl. Great for logos or text, small runs such as sports team names and numbers or garments/promo products unable to be directly screen printed.
Sublimation is a process by which sublimation dyes are printed onto a transfer medium with a specially prepared inkjet printer. Those dyes are then transferred from the medium to an object or garment under the heat and pressure delivered by a commercial heat press. Sublimation only works on garments made of polyester, or on specialty objects made of polyester or given a polyester coating. When the heat and pressure are applied, the dye on the transfer medium sublimates, or becomes a gas, and is then absorbed into the polyester itself. This is great for personalised team wear.
Embroidery is a process using stitched thread to create logos and text. This process does have limitations for detail but quite effective for garments such as mulit layer jackets, baseball caps and beanies. Best suited to a smaller logo locations.
