What printing methods do you use?

Sublimation Printing

For our swimsuits, towels, micro fibre tee's, WP Caps, life saving caps and bags. We use the sublimation printing process.

Designs are printed onto coated heat-resistant transfer paper as a reverse image

The design is then transferred onto the fabric via a heat press operating at a temperature around 180 to 210 C (375 F). The heat of the press causes the dye to turn into a gas and permeate the fabric. As it cools the dye solidifies into fibres of the fabric.

The fabric is permanently dyed so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the your design

The main advantage of dye/print-sublimation over other methods is that once done, it does not peel or fade.

Another advantage is colour definition, which is excellent due to the bonding of the dye to the transparent fibres of the fabric.

Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing

For all of our t-shirts (excluding the micro-fibre tee's), jumpers and hoodies. We use a DTG printing process. This method uses highly modified inkjet printing technology with special water-based inkjet textile inks which adhere to the fabric and make your/our catalogue designs #lookawesome

DTG achieves outstanding finishes when printing on to Cotton, Poly-Cotton Blends, Linen and Viscose, so ideal for our tee's etc
