Embroidery

The most popular form of garment decoration. We have invested in some of the best garment embroidery machines on the market to guarantee the best possible finish. Each of our machines is capable of stitching designs containing up to fifteen different colours with pinpoint accuracy. Our team are fully trained and highly experienced with a keen eye for detail to ensure you will be fully satisfied with the end result.

Garment embroidery is ideal for a huge variety of trades such as hospitality staff, painters and decorators, builders, mechanics, car workers and much more. Unlike other decoration methods the design is stitched directly in to the fabric meaning it will last as long as the garment itself. This makes it exceptionally good for builders and decorators may have to wash garments more regularly and at higher temperatures.

Embroidered Uniform
Machine embroidery is the process of stitching a design directly on to fabric
We use the latest Ricoma and Barudan embroidery machines to stitch designs directly to a wide variety of garments including t-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, fleeces, jackets, shirts, beanies and more. Our machines feature a 15 colour head which allows us to embroider complex logos in a wide variety of colours. We use Madeira threads which in our opinion are the best on the market.
Embroidery is one of the most durable and long lasting garment decoration methods available. Unlike with various print methods there is no risk of fading, cracking or peeling off.
We charge a small one off fee for the set up of new designs to get your artwork reproduced as an embroidery format known as a DST file. Once this has been produced you will not need to pay the set up cost again on future orders of the same badge.

Vinyl, also known as Flex, is a transfer film designed for application on to garments.
Vinyl can be applied to almost any flat fabric however we can not guarantee how well it will bond to any customer supplied garments due to factory production processes. It is perfect for applying to t-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, tote bags and much more.
Vinyl is perfect for simple, bold designs consisting of solid colours.
Providing your artwork is in vector format we charge no additional set up costs. If you are unsure is this would apply to you or if you would like assistance from our highly skilled design team please do not hesitate to contact us.

DTG

Direct to garment (DTG) printing is still a relatively new technology and we are one of the few companies in the South West offering this service. Ideal for full colour and intricate design
 
Our team are passionate about design and getting the best finished results for your garment. Over the years we have experimented with a huge range of t-shirt types and print settings which means we know exactly what garments to recommend for each individual job.
High Quality T Shirt Printing Torquay
A DTG printer essentially works the same as a standard inkjet printer which you might use at home to print on to paper. Using inkjet technology the printer applies the water based ink directly on to the garment which is then absorbed by the garments fibres creating a near soft hand finish. You may see DTG printing also referred to as digital garment printing, digital apparel printing and inkjet to garment printing.
Direct to garment printing (DTG) allows us to produce full colour prints on to a variety of cotton products. This includes garments such as t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies. We recommend where possible to only print on 100% cotton for the best possible results. We can not DTG print on anything lower than 60% cotton. A lot of DTG printers are limited in that they can only print on to white t-shirts. Our DTG printer has enhanced technology which allows us to print on to any colour garment. DTG printing is the perfect solution for anything from complex and full colour logos or photographs to simple text.
NO COLOUR LIMITATIONS
The DTG printer is capable of printing high detailed and intricate images & designs in full colour.
 
LONG LASTING
As the printer applies ink directly on to the fibres of the garment there is no risk of the print peeling off as you might experience with low quality iron on transfers.

Sublimation

Sublimation print is the perfect choice for sports men/women, athletes, fitness coaches and personal trainers as the decoration adds no additional weight to the garment and has a completely soft finish.
 
A great decoration method for people who wish to display lots of different logos on their garments.
Professional Garment Printing
Sublimation is the process of transferring a printed image on to a polyester based product. Under high temperature and pressure, the dye in the print turns into a gas and permeates the fabric and then solidifies into its fibres. The fabric is permanently dyed so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the image.
We can decorate a variety of products using the sublimation process including polyester based t-shirts and other similar garments, as well as polyester mugs, place mats, coasters and much more.
Artwork applied by the sublimation process will not crack or peel as it literally dyes the fibres of the product which makes it one of the most long lasting and hardwearing decoration methods on the market.
Providing your artwork is in a print ready format we charge no additional set up costs. If you are unsure is this would apply to you or if you would like assistance from our highly skilled design team please do not hesitate to contact us.
