  • Embroidery Service


    Embroidery is the process of physically stitching a logo onto a garment using different coloured threads. We can do all types of embroidery such as metallic, 3D, applique, and of course standard 2D.

  • Screen Print service

    Screen Printing

    Screen printing involves making a screen -- a little like a template -- and repeatedly using that screen to apply ink to a garment. Screen printing produces high quality prints and is very cost effective for large orders.

  • Digital DTG Printing service

    Digital 'DTG' Printing

    Digital printing directly applies a digital image to the garment, which is why it is often called ‘Direct-To-Garment’ printing. It produces very wide colour ranges and works very well for low quantity orders.

  • Transfer Printing service


    Transfer printing is the process of printing an image on a vinyl and then heat pressing that image onto a garment. It works well for individually named garments as well as printing on bags and jackets.

  • Laser Etching service
