Monogramming:

Monogramming is perfect for basic embroidery. The typical embroidery work will involve embroidering a company name or event name onto work or promotional clothing to help advertise your business when your staff are out and about.

Many embroidery companies will try and dissuade you from having text embroidery and will try & convince you to go for more complicated (and costly) options instead. Luckily, MAKS aren’t like other companies – we suggest what’s right for your personal needs.

 

Screen Print:

Screen printing is the most traditional garment printing method, but still considered the best due to its durability, versatility, and colour vibrancy. With MAKS, we offer a wide array of inks such as Metallic, Neon’s, Glow in the dark and Cracking inks to name a few. Screen printing is particularly suited for large orders, as production is cheaper than any other garment decoration method once initial set-up costs have been accounted for. This is due to low ink costs, and quick turnaround time.

Screen Printing is best suited to artwork with spot colours, as appose to photographs and gradient images, although this is possible and feasible particularly for larger order, with advanced printing methods such as halftones, simulated process and four colour CMYK printing.

With Screen Printing, we generally recommend that you keep your colours to a minimum to save costs due to the fact that for each colour in a design, a separate screen needs to be created. So the fewer colours in your design, the less it costs to print.

It is worth noting that some truly fantastic designs can be produced with minimal colours.

Artwork charges are only necessary if your image requires complex colour separation or if you are unable to supply artwork to our basic specifications. We're always happy to give advice to keep any artwork charges to a minimum for you. Our artwork guidelines aim to clearly explain what we need from you in order to process your order swiftly and to make sure you get the results you want.

 

Transfer Print:

This is similar on process to screen printing, except the print is onto transfer paper. This process involves printing your designs onto special transfer paper and then applying the transfer paper onto the t-shirt or garment using a commercial heat press. It enables full colour images to be printed very quickly and is a great option for promotional clothing. This option is great for jobs where a stock of transfers is useful for repeat orders.

  • Perfect for low quality T-Shirt runs, same shirts, promotional clothing and hen and stag does.
  • Available for light and dark coloured garments
  • Produces high-quality printing replication
  • Allows full colour designs
  • Very fast so perfect for same day and next day delivery services
  • No set up charges meaning it's very reasonably priced

 

DTG (Direct To Garment)

Digital garment printing, also known as direct to garment (DTG), uses special technology to print full colour images directly from the computer onto the clothing.

Our High resolution Kornit Breeze DTG printer and class 1 inks provide razor sharp detail and rich colour.

We’ve hand-picked our DTG clothing range to make sure every garment looks and feels great. After all, top quality printing is a waste on poor quality clothes!

 

Why choose Direct To Garment Printing?

Direct to Garment (DTG) T Shirt printing or digital T Shirt printing is the process of printing full colour images onto garments. DTG can be used on light or dark coloured garments. Using the latest printing technology and top quality DTG machines, we at Garment Printing can print full colour images onto a wide range of T Shirts, polo shirts, hoodies and other clothing.

DTG printing produces best print results on t-shirts and garments with 100% cotton content. Using DTG printing for items with a high polyester content is not currently possible.

The advantage of DTG Printing when compared to screen printing is the faster turnaround time & low set-up costs, which makes it a more cost effective solution when printing low volumes. Especially when a design that features a number of different colours.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to match pantone PMS colours with DTG Printing.

 

Vinyl Printing

Vinyl Printing is very similar to Transfer Printing, except it is only suitable for designs of 1 or 2 colours. The process involves cutting out your designs, logos, shapes, names or numbers from special vinyl material using specialist-cutting machines. It enables 1 or 2 colour designs and logos to be printed very quickly and is a great option for names and numbers on promotional clothing and printed sports clothing. 

  • Highly durable & slightly stretchy material
  • Print on both light and dark garments
  • Can also be used on other items of clothing such as hats, jumpers and much more
  • Perfect for sports names and numbers
  • Great for bespoke printing
  • No set up charges
  • Creates perfect shapes, lines and details

Cad Cut Vinyl printing is ideal for low-quantity T Shirt runs, work-wear, sports clothing (such as football and rugby tops) where you need names and numbers. It's also perfect if you're looking to create sample T Shirts and vests as well as promotional clothing, one-off promo T Shirts and stag and hen do tops.

With Cad Cut Vinyl, It will cut the design or logo to its exact shape and this is then heat pressed to the t-shirt or clothing. PLEASE NOTE - Some logos may be too intricate to cut out and print.

 

Artwork Information:

Embroidery – Good quality JPEG, PDF, AI or EPS file is ideal.

Screen Print – AI & PSD file with a minimum 300dpi resolution scaled to size.

Vinyl – AI or PDF vector file with a minimum 300dpi resolution scaled to size.

Transfer – CMYK colours in vector. File format to be PNG, AI, EPS or PDF. Minimum 300dpi. Design scaled to size.

DTG – CMYK colours in vector or raster graphics. File format to be PNG, AI, EPS or PDF. Minimum 300dpi. Design scaled to size.

Graphics will appear more pixelated when printed onto fabric than they will on paper or on screen because the ink disperses further.

Make sure your graphic is designed using CMYK colour settings. DTG printers use CMYK inks so bright lime green, super-hot pink or metallic colours will not render properly.
