Tajima Embroidery Machines

Used to embroider most of our clothing these machines are able to stitch 1000 stitches per minute and can run up to 8 items at the same time. We have specific adapters that let us embroider on what are often considered difficult places, such as cuffs and collars.

These machines achieve an accurate and clean stitch making even the most intricate logo embroidery possible.

Transfers & Dye Sublimation

Achieving the most accurate colour matches.

CAD Cutting of Transfers and Full-Colour Transfers

Professional transfers and dye-sublimation work by using heat to transfer an image from pre-cut shapes. These could be individual letters or shapes that make up a picture when combined.

The precision with which these shapes are cut affects the visual quality of the result. Using a high-precision CAD cutter allows us to work with more complex imagery in order to deliver a better result.

For non-dye-sublimation transfers we use various types of transfer material for cotton, polyester and nylon applications. A huge range of colour variants are available using this process which means we can consistently offer an excellent colour match for your logo or branding requirements. Our machinery enables us to produce full colour transfers for short or large orders in house at not fuss.

Dye-Sublimation Printing

Dye-sublimation is a bit like a having a tattoo. The process, which works on polyester fabrics only, uses the heat from a heat press to open up the 'pores' in the fibres and the dye is transferred inside. Once the fibres cool, the 'pores' close up and the dye is locked inside.

The dye is carried to the garment on special paper which is, in turn, applied using an ink-jet printer with special cartridges.

Due the granularity of this process, dye-sublimation can only carry near-photographic quality images onto polyester garments.

These machines work like large flat irons, it heats the material from both sides and allows the transfer or dye-sublimation (dying to the fabric) process to take place reliably. These machines can print onto all different specifications and to different sizes to accommodate different garments.

Transfers work well on cotton, polyester and nylon fabrics. Dye-sublimation is a special process for polyester only.

The cost effective solution for large volumes

Screen printing is a prevailing way to print on clothing. It has been used within the industry for years but continues to be a very efficient and cost effective way for printing clothing, large volumes especially.

Accurate and bright logos can be achieved on clothing using this method. The ink is printed onto the clothing which then sits onto of the fibres, rather than in them like dye sublimation.

Iron on labels are a really easy way to label clothes. This has become a staple for parents wishing to label their child's school uniform and sports kit, it saves a lot of time with a new school kit when historically they would need to sew on a large number of labels.
