Our printing methods include: DTG (Direct to Garment) Printing Direct to garment printing uses Neo-Pigment inks to print your design directly onto the garment. The leading technology allows us to create retail quality prints. See our DTG printing in action. Vinyl Printing Vinyl printing involves using a machine that cuts out a design onto a single-colour sheet of vinyl. The design is then heat pressed to create a vibrant finish. Versacamm Printing Versacamm prints a coloured design onto vinyl which is then cut around and heat pressed onto the garment. It’s great for high resolution images with a sharp and glossy finish. Screen Transfer We print the design by applying the coloured ink through a screen onto transfer paper. The transfer paper is then cured and heat pressed onto the t-shirt. Screen Print This printing technique involves applying colour directly through a screen, onto transfer paper. It’s best for complex designs and medium to large quantities.
