What print methods do you use?


We use the following methods for our garment printing, Each item in our inventory details the type of print you will get.

Heat Transfer

The application of inkjet printed transfers using a Heat Press, giving a vibrant colourful full colour image to the garment.

Good: The ability to give a full colour vibrant print on your item, in any size that is required, that looks really good.

Bad: Durablilty is not at the optimum level, while a heat transfer print will last a long time providing the wash care instructions are followed, failure to follow the instructions will shorten the life of the print, so it is up to you as the wearer of the garment to make sure that you follow them.

Colour Vinyl

This is the application of specialist Garment Vinyl cut to the specified design and applied to the garment using a Heat Press, giving excellent durabilty that will outlast the life of the garment.

Good: As mentioned Garment Vinyl gives outstanding durability, wash care instructions still need to be followed however they are much less important.

Bad: Vinyl can only be applied as solid colours as needed, so full colour images such as photos are not possible. Also anything overly complex as an image gets time consuming to create. Simple designs and text are best off done in vinyl.

Notes: Please note that colours and images may be subject to small changes as needed and the colours on your screen may not represent the exact colour your recieve. Finally the image on the t-shirt you see on the preview represents the image size on a small to medium sized shirt, on larger sizes the shirt will have a smaller image on it.
