Application Methods

Thanks to our industry leading machinery and workmanship, Direct print offers a wide range of techniques to apply customisation to the garments of your choice.

Our embroidery and printing methods will apply your branding to any garment of your choice. However, there are factors, like the material of your garment, which you should consider before you decide on what kind of application you wish to use.

Printing

Screenprint

Screenprinting is the process of adding your designs to clothing using ink that is pushed through a stencil using a rubber squeegee. The whole process is actually a little more intricate than that but that is it 'in a nutshell'. Using only the best quality inks we can replicate single colour right up to 4 spot colour designs, after this it may be worth considering digital print or perhaps embroidery if your design has more than 4 colours? 

Water Based Transfer

One of the latest print methods to hit our market is what is called a 'water based heat transfer'. These transfers are super long lasting. Very bright and vibrant and best of all the minimum order for this type of print is just 10 units! With these printed transfers being water based means they are eco friendly and vegan approved! The transfers are first printed to a backing film, adhesive is then added and once dry we heat seal them onto your garment or product. 

There are many different styles such as promo quality, wearables (suitable for washing), sub blocker for sports kits, metallics and many more! Contact us for further info. 

Heat Transfer Vinyl

Heat transfer vinyl is perfect for personalistion such as names. We often use it for orders below 20 because it keeps the cost down for you our customer. Heat transfer films have really come on leaps and bounds in recent years so no longer are they washing off or cracking like old horror stories you used to hear about! We invest in the best to give you only the best finished product. HTV (heat tranfer vinyl) is available in lots of different colours so we are sure to have something for you.

DTG

DTG stands for Direct To Garment. This process involves locking garments down so they are totally flat. We have around a 30x40cm print area and can print light or dark garments in stunning full colour. There is no minimum order for DTG printing making it a great option for those more complex designs.

Embroidery

Our in-house embroidery department can knock out a whopping 288 embroidered logos a day! Sadly, no two days are the same at Direct Print and some designs will have a lot more stitches than others meaning they can fulctate in the time taken to sew out. Our state of the art embroidery machines have 16 different needles meaning we can achieve 16 colour designs and also no minimum order so you can have as little as just one item, perfect for testing designs or sampling. Embroidery is a super long lasting branding option that we highly advise opting for if your logo suits the process.
