HOW DURABLE IS IT?
Super! We've run our Royal prints with small lettering and loads of colours through 50+ washes and our prints retained their stretch and vibrancy right the way through.
Different to screen print and other similar methods, our prints stretch with the garment rather than cracking.
WHAT COLOURS CAN IT DO?
With the addition of our newest printer to the line - we're now able to closely match most colours. Like all print applications, there are certain screen colours that we cannot match, but majority of RGB colours we can.
We have the ability to Pantone (PMS) colour match. All you need to do is indicate the colors in your order.
If it's screen printing you're after, the amount of colours in one design is limited. The durability along with the colour spectrum a digital print has to offer is why we generally opt for a Royal print.
All in all, we're confident we can provide the highest vibrancy prints on the market.
PRINT TYPE - ROYAL
We're super proud of our prints, and like to think that it sets us apart from the rest.
We've spent years researching and developing the best print method to keep up with the ever evolving logo and design trends. Logo's nowadays often feature multiple colours and gradients that are integral to the identity of the logo, and with traditional apparel printing methods, these aren't always able to be replicated.
With our Royal print method, we combine the hand feel and durability of a screen print, with the capability of digital printing, similar to DTG technology.
Unlike DTG though, no matter the colour or type of material, we can print on it and ensure the vibrancy of our wide ranging colour band.
Our Royal method consists of using a large flatbed printer to print ink in reverse onto a film, the film is then run through a curing unit to bring it to a state we can handle and won't run. From there, we press and apply it to the garment, removing the film and leaving only the ink behind.
Gradients, 1000's of colours, precise prints and NO vinyl!
Embroidery is a popular decorative technique that involves creating intricate designs on fabric using a needle and thread. With advancements in technology, programmable embroidery machines have become a common tool in the textile industry, making the process faster, more precise, and more efficient.
The embroidery print method using a programmable embroidery machine begins with a digital design. The design is typically created using computer-aided design (CAD) software or specialized embroidery software. This design is then loaded into the embroidery machine's computer, which controls the movement of the needle and thread.
Programmable embroidery machines offer a wide range of customization options, allowing for intricate and detailed designs to be created with precision. They can also use multiple threads of different colors simultaneously, allowing for the creation of multi-colored designs. Some advanced machines may also have additional features, such as automatic thread trimming or sequin attachment, further enhancing the design possibilities.
One of the advantages of using programmable embroidery machines is their speed and accuracy. These machines can produce multiple identical designs in a short amount of time, making them ideal for large-scale production. They also offer consistent results, as the designs are precisely executed according to the digital design. Additionally, programmable embroidery machines can be used on a wide range of fabrics, including cotton, silk, denim, leather, and more, making them versatile for various applications such as fashion, home decor, and promotional items.
Screen printing, also known as silk screening or serigraphy, is a popular printing technique that involves using a mesh screen to transfer ink onto a substrate, such as fabric, paper, or plastic. Screen printing is commonly used for creating custom designs on a variety of products, including apparel, posters, signs, and promotional items.
The screen printing process begins with a design that is usually created digitally or hand-drawn on a transparent film or paper. This design is then transferred onto a fine mesh screen made of polyester or nylon, which is stretched tightly onto a frame to create a stencil. The areas of the stencil that correspond to the design are left open, while the rest of the screen is blocked off with a waterproof emulsion.
The substrate, such as fabric, is placed underneath the screen, and ink is applied to the top of the screen. A squeegee is then used to push the ink across the screen, forcing it through the open areas of the stencil and onto the substrate below. The screen is carefully lifted, leaving behind the printed design on the substrate. The substrate is then dried or cured to set the ink, depending on the type of ink used.
One of the advantages of screen printing is its ability to create bold and opaque prints with sharp details, making it ideal for designs with solid colors or intricate patterns. It also allows for layering of multiple colors, enabling the creation of complex and multi-colored designs. Additionally, screen printing offers excellent durability, as the ink is typically cured at high temperatures, resulting in long-lasting prints that can withstand repeated washing and wear.
