Logo information


Custom embroidery and printing is a great way to personalise your garments and can last longer than the garment itself so perfect for workwear, Polo Shirts, PPE, schoolwear, sportswear or those special occasions alike!
If we can get a needle through it, we can probably embroider it! the embroidered garments we supply are ideally suited to withstand the embroidery process.
We have a wide range of designs to choose from or if you have text, image or logo it can be converted into embroidery. To do this it will need to be digitized to convert it into a stitch pattern. Once it has been created it will stay on our system permanently so you can keep coming back for more!
We do offer free embroidery up to a certain amount of stitches and after this stitch counts embroidered logos are priced based upon the extra number of stitches in the design, so in general the bigger the area or more complex your logo is the more expensive it could be. Our design set up charges are free for basic designs that are under 8000 stitches, and start from only £15.00 for others.
SIZES of embroidery the maximum size of custom embroidery is 24cm.

Most embroideries are done to the left or right chest of garments and sometimes to the rear large, but rear large embroideries depend on the type of garment, is it thick enough to withstand the weight of embroidery, will it feel itchy on the shoulders if worn next to the skin, and it can also very expensive to stitch logos large to the rear as the more stitches in the design equals more time which in turn equals more cost etc etc. If you are thinking of rear logos, print is usually the best option but can be discussed. Caps can be embroidered to the front and sometimes to the rear depending on the design. Please note baseball caps are more expensive to embroider than normal polo shirts or tees or woolly hats due to the machine and processes used to embroider.

Printing
We have various print technologies with different qualities and characteristics dependant on the type of logo and what garment it is to go on.We can do screenprinting, digital transfer printing, cad cut vinyl lettering or full colour transfers.
*** Please note printing garments in a dynamic process and not exact like printing paper due to the nature and tolerances of the items themselves. Please see our allowed tolerances of print and or garment positions.
**please see our special note on how much printing is allowed on Hi Visibility eniso20471 or ris3279 tom garments so as not to invalidate the specification https://www.hivis.co.uk/safety-ppe-legislation-explaination.html
Screen Printing   (suitable for qtys of 25 or more only )
Screen printing is a printing process in which ink is pushed through a seperate stencil for each colour 1 colour at a time onto a printing surface such as a t-shirts,polo shirts, sweatshirts, golf shirts and other clothing **please note screen printing is not achievable for items such as quilted or padded items, no dye rich items like sublimated garments, that ink would soak through .
This is a mechanical process and is very good for high volumes, there are set up charges for the screens at £20 per screen per colours per size that does not make this very economical under 25 garments but is very economical on larger print runs. This is normally a 7 working day turnaround once artwork had been approved but express services are available. We may use sublimation or digital printing as an alternative to screen printing to meet production deadlines if you need a specific type please let us know

OVER or UNDER runs in screenprinting
.When the process of decorating your garment required is Screenprinting, we reserve the right to under run or overrun up to 5% of quantity. This can also apply if items are damaged during the screen process. Translated this means, if you order 100 garments to be screenprinted by us and 1 garment gets damaged in the process, then we may not be able to re print a new item if it is out of stock to meet the deadline in time, so could not hold "the screen" and re set the machine when the item is due in, so in this case we would refund or adjust the order amount and charge only the amount we have sucessfully printed. If the damage is slight we would include this in your order as a "free" item, though not top quality.

 Screen printing
Please note any quotations for under 25 garments will always be quoted as digital prints for cost effectiveness unless you specifically request that you need silk screen printing.
The prices below for under 25 reflect this and are priced each print.

Printing White Garments with digital quality full colour images


Printed Area up to approx 200x 300mm the colour print 'floats' on the white fabric, ideal for personalising clothing, bedding, or bags with digital images such as photographs or full colour logos.
This is ideal for low quantities, such as full colour sponsor logo on a football shirt stag or hen logos etc. For larger quantities, we suggest screen printing if the garment allows. We may use sublimation or screen printing as an alternative to digital printing to meet production deadlines. if you need a specific type please let us know

Fanta print Car Print Mobil print Hen Shirt print  
         

Removal of printed transfers are charged £2.50+vat per transfer of average size or football number (not all transfers can be removed please call)______________________________________________________________________________________________

Sublimation Printing to white garments (poly rich)

Polyester rich white garments will produce top quality identical print ing onto the garments exactly as your artwork.Although a little more expensive for the garment it is definitely worth considering if you have many colours.

 

Full Colour Images on NON WHITE Garments
Printed Area up to A3 size applied as a solid 'patch' – which can be square, round or contoured to your design,. Ideally for digital images such as photo’s or multi colour logo’s with a solid colour background. We may use screen or digital printing as an alternative to sublimation printing to meet production deadlines.

Solid Colour Text, Shapes and simple outline Logos
Vinyl print technology for a fantastic look & smooth feel, or flock print for a felt feel. This is ideal for garments that have a lot of stretch and need the logo to move with the fabric, such as sportswear. We may use screen or digital printing as an alternative to sublimation printing to meet production deadlines. if you need a specific type please let us know

Ideal for any sized print area but design must be fairly simple and without very fine detail

Artwork Preparation
Our preferred format for most work is an Encapsulated Postscript file or *.eps file, this is the originally created artwork and having this will lower any set-up charges. We can also use J-Peg ( name.jpg ) in sRGB (the norm) sized at 300dpi at final size or pdf and or bitmap or most other commercially used file types, .ai .cdr .psd etc.

File size/resolution is important, and you should be aware that small images obtained from the internet will look poor when scaled up to a large printable area, also please get permission for the image license holder, bear in mind that most internet images are subject to copyright and are not usually suitable for print..

You can create a design mockup in any program you have, - but normally we cannot print this artwork and will just use it as a guide as the final print quality is not useable unless created in photoshop or dedicated image software.
There may be some limitation to what you create on screen and what can be transferred to garments and our designer will ensure the optimum print/embroider quality as close as to the original as possible. They will work with you to achieve the best end result. Example intricate gradients and shading are difficult to achieve with stitches so alternatives will be discussed in situations like this.

We may need to charge for creating some types of artwork or modifying yours so we can work from it. We will let you know when you place your order or you can call us with any queries prior to placing any order on 01744 814004.

Designs for embroidery need to be 'digitized'. This turns your image into a stitch pattern that the embroidery machines can recognise, determining colours and location. This is a very specialist piece of work and unfortunately not something a graphic designer can do with Photoshop, but should you have a dst file that  the machines can recognise please do not hesitate to supply it to us. Please note that own supplied embroidery designs such as  dst or emb will be sewn as is and we cannot accept any liability for poor stitch quality

Designs for cut vinyl printing need to be vectorized either by tracing from a j-peg or better still by supplying as Encapsulated Postscript file (eps file) or Adobe Illustrator file (*.ai) without any guidelines etc.

Specific fonts may need to be supplied to match your corporate identity.

PLEASE NOTE - we cannot guarantee Pantone matching for every single Pantone colour, - although we are usually very close as some types of garment characteristics cause different pantones to react slightly different., - please arrange for a sample if this is critical to you. Also we reserve the right to use a variation of print methods according to the production needs and logo types.
