Heat transfer
Heat transfer

Think of this method as a more advanced and higher quality “iron-on transfer.” The actual transfer is created digitally, in sheets, and applied using regulated heat and pressure to bond, or seal, the graphics onto the fabric. This method is appropriate for lightweight and woven (“slippery” or “smooth”) fabrics. It is not an option for textured and knit fabrics.

Laser etch
Laser etch

Laser Etching involves a computerized laser to precisely “burn” a logo or design into the top layer of the fabric. The type and color of the fabric is key to knowing if this method is appropriate. This method of decorating apparel is really growing in popularity and is a great way to add a logo in a subtle and unique way.

Screenprint
Screenprint

Screen printing is the way to achieve art detail and vibrant colors, matched exactly to your brand standards. Screen printing involves creating a stencil (a “screen”) and then using that stencil to apply layers of ink on the fabric. Each color is applied using a different stencil, one at a time, combined to achieve the final look.
