The origin of embroidery can be dated back to Cro-Magnon days or 30,000 BC. During a recent archaeological find, fossilized remains of heavily hand-stitched and decorated clothing, boots and a hat were found.
Today it is an extremely popular method of decorating clothing and accessories, by using an industrial embroidery machine to sew patterns and logos in multicolour and size for branding purposes straight to the garment and is one of the smartest and longest lasting forms of garment decoration. We have been embroidering garments here for many years, keeping up to date with the latest industrial machinery, materials and threads to ensure the quality you receive is of the highest level. Digitising logos, artwork and branding into sew out format couldn’t be easier here.
All you need to do is send us your requirements, by either sending us your logo or an idea, we can create or inspire you and then we make it a reality.
A printing technique started as early as 2,000 years ago in China as a stencilling method.
Now more commonly used within our industry to transfer ink onto a garment using a mesh screen and a squeegee. One colour can be printed at a time, or by using several screens we can produce a multi-coloured image or design. This is a very fast and cost effective way to do large runs and quantities so is ideal in the bulk production of garments and items, especially if you need to keep the costs low. As a few examples we have printed for Marathons, Charity Fundraisers, Events, Teamwear, and also for School Leavers annually, it gives excellent wear and wash results at lower costs.
Direct to Garment Printing
A relatively new technology that emerged in the 1990s.
Its all in the name…. ‘Direct to Garment’ or ‘DTG’ for short, uses ink to print directly onto the fabric or item of your choice. The easiest and simplest way to describe this method is to imagine a paper printer similar to that you may have at home, where you feed paper in, and ink from cartridges is transferred through a printer head to the paper creating your picture/photo or design onto the paper. Direct to garment uses very similar technology but instead of feeding paper in you feed a garment or fabric through in either a cartridge or a print bed moving under the print head. Many machines have different ways in which they do this… see our video Snippet, as this shows you exactly how it’s done here.
Cut to Press or Cad cut Vinyl
A process of cutting a design from a stock coloured material using a cutter plotter, and applying to the garment using a pressurised industrial heat press.
This is a super way to produce quick and cost effective one off items, not the best method if you have a large qty to print, or a multicoloured artwork, best for simple designs in 1-2 colours where the artwork can be layered to create a multicoloured design. Best used for football kit numbers, personalisation on leavers hoodies, Stag and Hen parties, or last minute birthday gimmick ‘quickies’ for example.
The printing of a multicoloured shaded or intricate design in reverse to a transferable vinyl or paper.
This is another great method, and can be used on light or dark materials, where the design is printed to a transferable clear substrate in reverse, and then transferred to the garment using an industrial heat press with pressure. Good for medium sized runs of approx. 10-150 items to also give quick turnaround.
This method can also come in the form of screen printed Transfer printing, where the print is screen printed with a mesh screen and squeegee in reverse to transfer paper, gelled off with controlled heat so dry to the touch, and then transferred to the garment again with an industrial heat press.
