Decoration Methods

screen printing

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen-printing is a method of printing where the ink is squeezed through a thin mesh onto the garment. Both logos and pictures can be printed. Each colour is printed separately with pictures being built up one colour at a time. Screen-printing gives a high quality and long-lasting image.

EMBROIDERY

This process is where the decoration is machine stitched into the garment using different coloured threads. It provides a permanent pattern. Garments can be embroidered directly, or a badge can be embroidered as a stand-alone item to be sewn onto the garment. Embroidery is long-lasting and can be used on a wide range of garments, great for workwear, polo’s, sweatshirts and jackets.

Transfer

TRANSFERS

Transfers are applied using heat and the artwork is ‘glued’ to the garment. Transfers can be created using a wide selection of colours and finishes, including matte, metallic, fluorescent and glitter. We can produce bespoke transfers including logos, text and images. Perfect for sportswear, workwear, running vests and hi-visibility garments.

sublimation

SUBLIMATION PRINTING

Sublimation printing is the most versatile printing method we use. Images are permanent and do not peel or fade. Photographic images can be used. Modern technical fabrics, such as our Max Athlete running vests and our Max Velo cycling clothing, are perfect for this type of printing. The base garment or item is white, giving one of the massive advantages of sublimation printing; a white fabric can be turned into any colour, meaning that the garment and design can be accurately matched to your corporate colours.
