Tips From Our Experts By Decoration Technique

Embroidery

Embroidery is the art of embellishing a piece of apparel with a needle and thread or yarn creating stunning visual representations of various types of art. This is achieved by converting logos in a digitizing software and using various stitch patterns, angles, density and stitch types to create depth, movement and detail. Thread can be made from many materials. The most commonly used threads are polyester and rayon. There are also options such as metallic, cotton, nylon, silk and even Nomex thread for fire resistance. Embroidery has a very high-perceived value and is popular for use on most apparel, bags, hats, luggage, blankets and more!

Screen Printing

An imprinting method in which the image is transferred to the fabric. Ink is squeegeed through a stenciled screen stretched over a frame and then cured in a dryer.

Due to the poly content in this blend, low-cure inks are required when printing on solid dark colors.  To avoid ghosting in select mid-tone and grey colored fabrics in polyester blends, be aware of shop temperature, humidity and avoid hot stacking.  Consult with your ink supplier for best recommendation to avoid ghosting.  To avoid scorching of polyester blends, be aware of flash units and dryer temperature, time and distance.
Heat Transfers

A graphic, name and or number applied to a textile with a heat press. Great for quantities of any size, sports name and numbering, fashion, performance wear, print on demand programs and on-site decorating events.

Heat transfers with low cure adhesives and bleed blockers are recommended for this product on solid dark colors.  Avoid hot-stacking when decorating 100% polyester and blended fabrics.  Do not package product until completely cool.  Cooling stations are recommended.
Pad Printing

Pad printing uses a soft silicone pad to transfer an image taken from a plate etched with a reversed logo, similar to a rubber stamp. Images can be very small and detailed and can be up to 5Ā½ inches in diameter. Pad printers are capable of printing up to six colors, however most industry printers use one to two colors at most when printing on apparel. Pad printing is a popular trend for tagless label printing. The prints are soft, durable and capable of high and low volume production. Pad printing is great for sling bags, totes and other items that are difficult to decorate, as well as styles that are heat sensitive.
