Print Methods

Silk Screen Machine

Silkscreen/ Screen Printing

Silkscreen/Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. Simply put, it is the process of using a mesh-based stencil to apply ink onto our fabrics, and the designs are completely customisable. 
Depending on quantities, screen printing may be an economical alternative for getting your logo on a polo shirt, but should only be considered on smooth knits (not piques).

Heat Transfer Machine
Digital Heat Transfer

The process of digital transfer prints the image onto a carrier, which is then transferred to the fabric using a heat press machine. The image is usually printed onto a wax-based paper and then transferred to a choice fabric. 
The technology used to create digital transfers has advanced tremendously over the years, allowing the print quality to be more durable and vibrant.

Embroidery Machine

Custom Embroidery

We provide custom embroidery services for applying logos on T-shirts, polo tees and uniform. The embroidery process includes digitally stitching the customised design onto the garment to ensure uniformed and lasting quality for the piece. Embroidery is one of the most durable printing methods available. Consider what will be embroidered on your shirt and where. The traditional location for a company logo is on the left chest, “over the heart.” But there are other options, including the sleeves and back yoke (just below the collar). Multiple embroidery locations work very well on polo shirts and help make the shirt more distinctive and useful as an advertising medium. Don’t try to put too much information on the left chest. If you have a logo and a tagline or website that you want to promote, it looks much better to put the logo on the chest, and the other information on a sleeve or on the back.  

Embroidery prices are charged based on the number of embroidery stitches you want to use on your garment. For large surface embroidery area, the number of stitches required will be a lot and the cost will be higher.
