With garment decoration, there are different ways in which apparel can be decorated. The method chosen depends on the colours used in the design, quantity of garments to be decorated, the type of finish required and many more factors. Options include:
Screen printing which is a popular decoration technique for garments especially t-shirts and can be used on large quantity runs.
Direct-to-garment (DTG) utilising digital inkjet technology to directly print onto the garment more suited to low quantity requirements.
Embroidery which is often used for brand motifs, promotional clothing and business uniforms.
Heat transfer which lends itself to low quantity runs or one-off prints involves printing the design onto a special type of transfer paper that is applied to the garment using a heat press
This a 4 colour process decoration technique in which inks are printed onto a transfer material.
Through a combination of pressure and heat, the dyes on the transfer are turned into vapor and absorbed by the fabric.
The advantages are numerous to include high print quality that will not fade or peel.
For this decorative process to work, the fabric has to be polyester.
With laser etching, a laser is used either to remove a layer of fiber from the fabric or to remove the pigment dye on a non-piled fabric (i.e. flat, smooth and with no upright loops) fabric.
The laser etching can achieve a deep or shallow cut.
This decoration technique can be used on a variety of fabrics such as fleece, suede and polyester.
A laser is used to cut the fabric on the garment, eliminating the inaccuracies that come with hand placement.
Traditionally fabric was cut out by hand and sewn onto the garment. Ideal for sweatshirts and jackets.
This involves placing a piece of material on the reverse side of the garment.
A laser is then used to cut into the front side of the garment, exposing the appliqué beneath.
Ideal for T-shirts and sweatshirts.
These consist of printed, woven, embroidered or soft PVC patches that are either sewn or heat pressed.
They are ideal for caps, bags and jackets.
