Dye-sublimation is a fantastic option for products made from polyester such as T-shirts and polo's or polymer-coated promotional products.
Because it uses a dye rather than an ink, the fabric or other material can be washed without damaging the quality of the image.
Garments can be washed without the image fading and the vibrant colour image can be printed to right to the edge.
These options are just a few that are available. With the wide variety of items that need branding there is something for every product.
This can be applied to all forms of clothing and caps. We take your logo or design and digitize it to form a program which is then applied using threads to your garment. Embroidery costs vary due to the size. I.e. number of stitches and the number of colours used. We need a high resolution JPEG or similar file to be able to quote on your logo or design.
This method of branding can be used on tee shirts, polo’s, aprons, tote bags, towels and most apparel. It can also be used on compendiums. A screen is made up and the ink is pressed through this in the form of a specific shape. The cost is dependent on how many colours, the size of the run and to some extent the size of the print. In order to quote accurately we need to know how many colours in the design and the number of products to be screened. We will also need a EPS file with all artwork converted to curves.
An image is printed directly onto a substrate and is then heat applied to the fabric. Digital printing is often more expensive per page, but this cost is offset by the fact that you only need one set up. And if it’s a multi coloured design this can save you money.
This is also known as full colour printing. Great for multiple coloured prints, and large runs. 4 -5 set ups are needed to complete this process. This process allows you to have photographic images replicated onto fabric.
This is the most common method for branding logos onto ‘hard’ surface items such as pens, golf balls, plastic or metal items. And is very cost effective. Vector artwork is needed to create the plate, and the cost is based on the amount of colours in the print and the quantity required.
This can be applied to a lot of different products. If you have a design or logo with multiple colours. A digital label for confectionery, a resin coated badge with a digital print for compendiums and some promotional products, to a digital print for clothing. Makes great use of the full colour print option.
Can be applied to most metal products (subject to branding area) such as pens, keyrings, flasks etc. Can also be applied to wood and glass products. Usually applied to metal pens, keyrings, clocks and glassware. Laser engraving enhances the base colour of the item being engraved in a high quantity finish.
Laser engraving produces a subtle and importantly permanent high quality decoration. Computer controlled lasers etch a small amount of the product’s surface giving an ‘etch’ effect. This is a complex and technical process with very precise and even results, for a professional and high quality finish, which will certainly impress.
Pricing is based on the size of the brand, product type and quantity.
