:Vinyl printing, or Cad Cut Vinyl printing as it’s also known, is very similar to transfer printing, except it’s only suitable for designs which consist of one or two colours. The process involved cutting out your designs, logos, shapes, names or numbers from a special vinyl material. The designs are cut using industrial cutting machines or plotters. It enables one or two colour designs and logos to be printed very quickly and is a great option for names and numbers on promotional clothing and printed sports clothing.
Cad Cut Vinyl printing is ideal for low-quantity T-Shirt runs, workwear, sports clothing (such as football and rugby tops) where you need names and numbers. It’s also perfect if you’re looking to create simple T-Shirts and vests as well as promotional clothing, one-off T-Shirts and stag and hen do tops.
We can use Cad Cut Vinyl printing to print on both light and dark garments and can also be used on other items of clothing such as hats, jumpers and much more.
Direct to Garment Printing:
Direct to Garment Printing, or digital printing as it’s sometimes known, is the process of printing full-colour images onto garments. DTG printing can be used on both light and dark coloured garments. Using the latest printing technology and top quality DTG machines, we at Garment Printing can print full-colour images on to a wide range of T-Shirts, polo shirts, hoodies and other clothing types.
A print method in which ink is applied directly to the surface of the garment to be printed.
The image to be printed is photographically transferred to a very fine fabric (the screen) (Cost £25.00) such that the non-printing areas are blocked off and the fabric serves as a stencil. The ink is wiped across the screen to pass through the unblocked pores and reach the garment. For each colour to be printed a separate screen is prepared and the process is repeated.
Most modern embroidery machines are computer controlled and specifically engineered for embroidery. Industrial and commercial embroidery machines and combination sewing-embroidery machines have a hooping or framing system that holds the framed area of fabric taut under the sewing needle and moves it automatically to create a design from a pre-programmed digital embroidery pattern.
Depending on its capabilities, the machine will require varying degrees of user input to read and sew embroidery designs. Multi-needle industrial machines are generally threaded prior to running the design and do not require re-threading. These machines require the user to input the correct color change sequence before beginning to embroider.
A multi-needle machine may consist of multiple sewing heads, each of which can sew the same design onto a separate garment concurrently. Such a machine might have 20 or more heads, each consisting of 15 or more needles.
