Compare Decoration Methods

Vinyl Sublimation Embroidery
Application Technique The traditional method of garment decoration. Individual colors in your design are imposed on fine mesh screens. Ink is then forced through the mesh directly onto the fabric and is bonded using high temperatures. State-of-the-art technology where the image is printed onto the garment directly from a digital file. Unlike iron-on transfers, digital printing leaves a vibrant image with excellent durability and wash fastness. Logo or design is sewn directly into the fabric using decorative needlework.
