We use a variety of printing methods which are available to you to choose from! Unlike many other printing companies that limit you to how you can print, we do not. We allow you to select your printing method alongside your garment, paper, sizes, print speed, and other details. If you are unsure of which method is best for you, please view our list below in which we describe all our printing methods.
screen printing is also known as silk screening. This printing method requires a mesh frame whether wood or metal used to make a stencil. Once the stencil is created ink is applied to and forced through the small holes in the screen using a squeegee leaving the covered area free from ink.
DTG (Direct To Garment printing)
Direct to garment printing uses inkjet technology where a printer directly applies ink onto a garment. This method requires a pretreatment solution that allows the ink to print on any color garment. Following is the printing process which works similar to your printer at home, but using a white basecoat letting it recreate color images easily.
Sublimation printing uses a digital printer to produce mirrored images on paper that is coated with a transfer material. This allows the ink and transfers material to move into the gas state by pressing it in heat allowing it to spread throughout the fibers of the substrate material.
Heat transfer begins with a design printed onto a piece of Teflon coated paper made to withstand extreme temperatures. Thereafter a heat press machine is utilized using high temperatures and pressure to transfer the image onto a garment.
Embroidery is a method in which a logo is reproduced by stitching thread directly into a garment. This is done via computerized embroidery machines.
offset printing is one of many paper printing methods. Offset printing uses aluminum plates that are etched one for each color used in the artwork. They are used to transfer an image onto a rubber "blanket". Next, the ink is used to coat the rubber then it rolls the image onto paper.
Digital printing is an image digitally transferred to paper using lasers. Yes! Just like your home printer but bigger and faster.
Raised Ink Printing/ Thermography
Raised ink is printed using a slow drying ink and while the ink is still wet, a resin powder is sprinkled and exposed to heat. The resin and ink fuse together, raising the lettering.
Foil stamping is a process that requires heat, pressure metal dies and foil film. foil stamping does not require any ink. First, metal dies (magnesium, copper, bronze) are created one per foil color. or per design to be stamped Later the dies are heated and then stamped with enough pressure to seal a thin layer of foil to your paper.
