Print, Heat Transfer & Embroidery

We work with a network of different suppliers offering a large selection of printing, heat transfer and embroidery techniques.

The good thing about Digital Print is that it can print almost any design on most type of fabrics.

Digital Print can print artworks in high resolution, details and unlimited colours, which makes it cost-effective for printing.

We use Digital Printing as the default printing method for artworks that have more than 4 colours.

Dye Sublimation is a process where dyes pigment are printed onto a transfer medium and then applied to the fabric or garment using heat and pressure.

This process allows the inks to fully penetrate the fabric to create a permanent and full colour image that has no hand feel.
