Embroidery and Printing Techniques


Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric with designs stitched in strands of thread. Embroidery machines are driven by computers that read digitised embroidery files created by special software. The machines automatically create a design from a pre-made logo that is input into the machine.

Logos can be embroidered in up to 9 different thread colours.

This process is ideal for textiles and fabrics and provides a permanent and upmarket branding solution on the product.

Heat Transfer

A digital image is printed onto a special vinyl surface, which is then placed onto the garment in the desired position. The garment is placed in a heat press and the heat from the press melts the adhesive backing on the vinyl, merging it with the fabric.

This process is mainly used where a logo is too intricate for screen printing. Since it's a digital print, the detail in the logo can be replicated with great clarity.

Screen Printing

Screen printing is the process whereby a logo is transferred onto a garment via a mesh screen.

This method provides excellent coverage and is especially good for large and bold logos. Colours are printed one at a time so accurate registration is essential.

Screen printing allows for up to a 6 colour print and is a popular choice for branding t-shirts and caps.

Dye Sublimation

Modern Technique

Dye sublimation is a printing technique used to apply designs to fabric and other materials, offering high-quality, durable results. It's particularly popular for creating custom clothing due to its ability to produce vivid, full-color images with a soft-to-the-touch feel.

Dye sublimation involves a two-step process that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials, such as polyester or polymer-coated items. Initially, your design is printed onto a special paper using sublimation inks. This design is then transferred to the fabric under heat and pressure.

The dye sublimation process is often considered more eco-friendly compared to traditional textile printing techniques. The inks are generally water-based, and since the design is infused into the fabric, there's minimal waste or excess ink used.

Vivid, Durable Results

Unlike traditional printing methods that apply the design on the surface of the fabric, dye sublimation allows the ink to penetrate the material's fibers. The heat turns the ink into a gas, which then bonds with the fabric, becoming part of the material itself. This results in vibrant colors that are less prone to fading or washing out.


Dye sublimation is suitable for a wide range of products beyond clothing, including banners, flags, and other items. However, it's particularly effective for custom clothing, such as t-shirts, sportswear, and uniforms, because it allows for edge-to-edge printing. Designs can cover entire garments without seams or image breaks.


Since the ink becomes part of the fabric, the printed area is as soft as the rest of the material. This is a significant advantage for clothing, as it ensures that the design does not affect the garment's comfort.
