what are screen printing, embroidery and transfers?

screen printing is the ancient art of creating a screen from the artist work which will allow an ink to pass through onto a surface so that the art can be duplicated multiple times. we continue that tradition with the help of computers and highly refined inks that we cure/ bake into the garments at 330 degrees so they will remain colorful after many washings.this process is most economical for large designs with few colors as it is priced based on the number of colors printed at each location.

embroidery is stitched directly into the fabric. the design must be digitized so that the embroidery machine knows which threads to stitch to create the desired effect. embroidery is priced by the number of stitches necessary to make the design regardless of the number of colors. this decoration method is best used for small colorful logos , typical of various organizations and placed on the left chest of a garments such as a denim, polo or jacket.

transfers are several different techniques which make images through the computer either printed with special inks or cut then transfered to the garment or other item with high temperature and pressure using specialized equipment. transfers are typically used for small volume or multicolor jobs where screen printing set up costs are prohibitive.

cut transfers work best with simple designs on dark fabrics. we set up the design in the computer and use a cutter to cut a vinyl material to shape then apply to the fabric. this is most often seen as numbers and names on sports jerseys but the designs are very flexible and create a very durable product.

dye sublimation is a process which uses special dyes as the ink and printed on a paper substrate. this dye only reacts with a polyester finish to produce a permanent non crack, non fade, no feel design on a variety of items that will outlast the product. we can reproduce full color photographs or multicolor logos or clip art at the same cost as single color.these too are applied at high temperature and pressure.we offer a variety of garments and mugs using this process. this technique was developed for the small volume/ high color applications.
