Embroidery

Embroidery uses thread to create a patch or is directly sewn into apparel. Embroidery is the most professional way to apply a logo or text to a garment and will last a lifetime. This process requires a small fee to digitize artwork to be used by the embroidery machinery.

Advantages:
– Can be applied to wide variety of apparel and locations
– Long lasting
– Wash and dry as usual
– Thread options are numerous
Disadvantages:
– Can be expensive choice for small run orders
– Small, full color images are not ideal

   

Heat Transfer

Heat transfer is most commonly used to add player numbers to the back of team apparel. The material is vinyl which is cut and bonds to the cloth through heat and pressure.

Heat transfer comes in a wide variety of colors and includes fun options like sparkle, glow-in-the-dark, and reflective. There is also a very special version that allow us to digitally print in full color.

Advantages:
– Allows for customization
– Ideal for small quantities
Disadvantages:
– Cannot survive repeated high heat wash & dry cycles
– Not good for high quantities
– Full color designs not recommended

   

Screen Print

Screen print (aka silk screening) is a process that applies a plastic ink which is heated to bond with your apparel’s surface. With this process each color of your design requires a separate screen which may translate to a high initial cost but is great for large quantities.

Advantages:
– High quality image
– Long lasting
– Cost effective for high quantities
– Vibrant colors
Disadvantages:
– Big initial setup costs
– Minimum quantity 12 pieces

   

Direct To Garment

DTG printing is like inkjet printing but the shirt is the paper! This technique uses special water-based inks which are absorbed into the fabric. There is no limit to the detail or number of colors possible.

Advantages:
– Full color, high detail
– Print will have soft feel
– Great for small quantities
Disadvantages:
– Not ideal for large runs
– Slow compared to screen print
