LABELLING OPTIONS FOR TEXTILES
Embroidery and 3D embroidery
Embroidery is a sophisticated and highly abrasion-resistant marking method, in which the logo is sewn directly onto the textile. The method is used mainly for jackets, shirts, terry cloth products, bags/backpacks, as well as for caps and hats. The finest detail cannot be obtained with embroidery, so the minimum requirement for the height of the text/logo is 4 mm. An embroidery program of the desired logo is always first prepared on a computer, which is used as the basis for implementing the embroidery. The embroidery price is confirmed separately according to the stitch count. Raster or four-colour effects cannot be produced by embroidering.
Screen printing is a method in which the colour is printed directly to the products through a screen cloth that has been stretched over a frame. This method can be implemented on a variety of materials and even the slightest details of logos can be displayed. Screen printing is affordable in one- and two-colour labelling, as well as in large quantities.
3D screen printing
FOR DARK AND LIGHT PRODUCT BASES. Does not require a base of white ink underneath. Usually, only one or two colour inks in 3D per print image. Small details are repeated better than in embroidery. Suitable for caps as one colour printed. 3D colours and standard colours can be printed in the same print. Large solid colour surfaces should be avoided. Highly resistant to stretching, and thus is suitable for tops and other stretchy products.
Thermal transfer image
Thermal transfer with images allows the use of small details and most colours. In thermal image transfer, the image is first printed as a mirror image onto transfer paper or film, from where it is pressed to the desired surface by using a heat press. Due to the heat of the press, the ink comes off the paper/film and adheres to the product. In heat pressing, the product must momentarily withstand a temperature of 150 °C.
Flock printing can be used in labelling textiles, caps and bags. The flock material is attached to the product with a heat press, and the remaining excess material around the logo is plucked away by hand. Flock printing is not suitable for labelling of multi-coloured, highly complex logos or logos with small details.
Digital thermal transfer image
A digitally produced thermal transfer image is produced with a computer controlled digital printer, either directly to the product or the graphics are transferred to a transparent transfer foil, from where it is cut out and heat pressed to the product. The advantage of this method is the 100 % coverage, the logo's unlimited colour amount and the accuracy of even the smallest details. Digital printing can be used for producing, e.g. photo prints, rasterised images, etc.
Embroidered fabric label
The principle is the same as for embroidery, but the logo is sewn on the base fabric. After this the label is either sewn to the garment, or attached by heating. The advantage of embroidered labels is the possibility of producing several pieces at once, and the diverse further use.
Woven fabric label
Smaller and finer details can be made to a woven label. The woven label is either sewn to the garment, or attached by heating. In large quantities, woven labels are more affordable than embroidered labels or direct embroidery.
Minimum order 100 pieces.
Rubbery PVC labels of various shapes and sizes are the modern way to label textiles. The labels are sewn to the product.
Minimum order 250 pieces.
PVC ZIPPER PULLS
PVC zipper pulls of various shapes and sizes.
The easiest way to label company textiles.
Minimum order 250 pieces.
LABELLING OPTIONS FOR HARD BUSINESS GIFTS
A perfect printing method for smooth surfaces. Can be printed multiple colours on to a variety of different materials, such as paper, wood, metal, glass and plastic. Conducted in the same manner as screen printing on textiles.
In pad printing the print is "stamped" with a rubber or silicon pad from the printing plate to the product. This method is often used for small, hard surfaced, as well as concaved and convex surfaces, such as pens, lighters, etc. The material to be printed on may be, for example, plastic, glass, ceramic, metal, or wood. The advantage of pad printing is the accuracy of the details.
Laser engraving provides a stylish, precise, and eternal marking. Engraving can be implemented on metal, plastic, wood, leather and glass.
Digital printing can be implemented on hard materials, which have a flat surface, in the same way as on textiles. A computer, where the graphics is, is connected to a digital printer and the image to be printed is printed directly on the product. Extremely precise and multi-coloured images can be produced with digital printing.
Etching is suitable for all electrically conductive metals and compounds. For example, tools, steel mugs, knives, placards etc. are suitable for etching. Usually produces a dark, elegant and permanent mark.
The print material is advised to be sent to us in vector graphics format, such as for example PDF, EPS, AI or CDR. The more prepared the material is, the faster the work will be completed. Vector graphics allow the image format (e.g. rotation) and size (scaling) to be changed, without the image becoming grainy. We can also, if necessary, edit the file on your behalf in to vector format for a vectorisation fee.
Fonts must be converted into paths or you can also send the font file. If you only have an office software (Word, PowerPoint) available, the fonts should be embedded in the file. This is done at the saving phase, via the Settings, in section Embed fonts in the file.
In embroidery JPEG material, which has a resolution of at least 600 dpi, is sufficient. If the text to be marked on the product is stacked, the desired text, i.e. font type must be indicated.
