When Oran from OMC Farm Supplies contacted us with a fab design he wanted replicated - there was no doubt embroidery was the way to go! It is perfect for thicker garments, and while it costs more than printing, it is durable and has a long lifespan. Embroidery provides a textured appearance as the threads are raised above the rest of the fabric. Not all designs are suitable for this. Business logo embroidery looks professional and stands out even after it’s been washed multiple times.
It’s important to consider all aspects before making the decision on whether to go for print or embroidery. If you’re unsure, speak to our experts who will be putting your design into practice. We will be able to tell you if we can colour match for embroidery, or if your design idea is better suited for a print. We can discuss the type of fabrics to use, and whether a mixture of both embroidery and printing can be used for some items. No matter what you end up choosing, having branded items is a great step for any business or group, and everyone who sees them are sure to remember exactly who you represent.
These fab tees have been produced for a local company who are always pushing the boundaries and creating innovate ideas. Screen printing was the perfect fit for this design, it is a technique that involves using a woven mesh screen to support an ink-blocking stencil to achieve a desired image.
The screen stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials, by pressing through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate (the item that will receive the image). A squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing ink through the mesh openings to wet the substrate during the squeegee stroke. As the screen rebounds away from the substrate, the ink remains. Basically it is the process of using a mesh-based stencil to apply ink onto a substrate, whether it is t-shirts, hoodies or other garments.
Yesterday marked a year since Covid 19 closed us all down. Who could have known that we would pass the first anniversary of Covid still in 'Lockdown'!! It seems almost surreal. We would just like to to take the time to send you all a wee note to say thanks for your support! These are difficult times for many reasons & we do our best with the resources we have. Thank you for sticking with us, it means the world!
