Silkscreen

Most economical choice for high volume printing. Printing process by which ink (Pantone matched if necessary) is laid down on the fabric using screens. One color per screen and ink lays on top of fabric.

Logos can be printed from 1 to 8 colors and up to simulated 4-color process.

Water or soy-based inks also available.

Very durable, machine washable.

Used for tablecloths, table runners, aprons, and much more.

Dye sublimation

Most economical print process for low volume and multi-colored graphics.

Dye sublimation takes the logo and prints it on special transfer paper. The paper and white polyester material is fed through a “printer” that heats the paper so high the art turns to a gas and transfers the image onto the white polyester.

Dye sublimation prints the graphics and at the same time prints the background color.

Very durable and machine washable.

Used for tablecloths, banners, chair covers, waste receptacle covers, flags, napkins and more.

Digital print

Digital printed transfer printing uses a wafer-thin printable material. Color is added to through a large format ink jet printer.  After heat setting the logo to the display cloth it is CAD cut to shape.

More multi-color detail is available with digital printing but the overall shape needs to be simple for the CAD cutting process. 

This is a good solution for small runs of a multi-color logo at a lower cost than dye sublimation.

Digital printing can be used on tablecloths, podium flags, table runners, banners, and much more.

Embroidery

An embellishment method using colored threads to create a detailed design or logo.

Ideal for high end, formal projects.

Used for podium flags, napkins, University projects, and corporate events.

Tackle Twill Applique

Appliqué logos are computer cut tackle twill material, commonly used on sports uniforms, such as hockey jerseys.

The tackle twill is permanently adhered and will not peel or fade. 

Smaller detail needed in the logo is embroidered.
