What is screen printing? Screen printing is a super high quality and durable method to print garments. It’s a labour intensive process with each colour of the print requiring a separate screen printing screen/plate. Each additional colour is hand printed then spot dried between colours. The garment is rotated on a specialist screen printing carousel for the application of each additional colour. The garments are then heat cured on a tunnel dryer to provide maximum print durability and colour longevity.

Vinyl Heat Transfers
What is vinyl heat transfer printing? The design is reversed and cut onto sheets of vinyl transfer paper using a plotter (cutter). Following this, the design is flipped and placed onto the garment in the location where the print is desired. The vinyl design is then heat pressed onto the garment. While hot, the vinyl backing paper is peeled away leaving the design printed on the garment.
What is vinyl transfer printing good for? Unlike screen printing, this printing method does not require any set up cost. This makes it the perfect solution for one-off garments or to personalise an already screen printed garment. For example, a stag or hen-do for 20 people would require the same design screen printed onto the front of the garment and individual names heat pressed onto the back.
