Appliqué is a unique alternative to standard embroidery, used to create a badge like effect which is crisp and very detailed. It minimises the number of stitches by replacing the background of an in-filled logo, which in turn can help reduce the cost of large designs. It works by laser cutting a piece of fabric to shape, and then embroidering the logo over the top, directly onto the garment. The price for appliqué is dependent upon the design size, complexity, background material, and order quantity.
Transfer printing comes in 2 forms; Cad-Cut and Digital. Cad-Cut transfer printing is a basic form of garment decoration where a design is machine cut out of vinyll fabric, and then applied onto garments using heat and pressure. It is usually only used for basic, 1colour designs such as simple logos, or large names and numbers (e.g. the back of a rugby or football shirt). The benefit to cad-cut is that there is no minimum order, and no setup charge, so it can be a cheaper alternative to screen printing for small quantities .
Digital transfer printing, or "litho printing", is best used to create full colour designs. It works by digitally printing onto a special transfer paper, which is then cut to shape and applied to the garment using heat and pressure. The result is a beautiful, soft print finish, which will not fade, crack or peel. It works best for detailed logos on a solid background. There is no minimum order, or setup charge, and prices reduce greatly for larger orders.
Direct To Garment (DTG) Printing
DTG printing is where a design is applied directly into the garments surface using a special inkjet printer. The result is a vibrant, full colour digital print which is ultra soft to touch. It only really works on white, ring-spun cotton t-shirts, but there is no minimum order, and prices reduce greatly for larger orders.
Vintage printing, or "discharge" printing, is an innotive technique which creates a bleached effect by removing the colour from the garment. It works by adding a special chemical to the ink of a normal screen print, which reacts with the dye of the garment taking it back to its natural colour. This chemical reaction varies on different fabrics and colours, giving a truly unique finish with every batch. The result is a beautiful, soft print finish, which will not fade, crack or peel. Prices for vinage printing are the same as screen printing, but without the need for a flash base print.
