Embroidery is our most popular decoration. This is the process of sewing or embroidering your logo or lettering directly into the garment or other product. Logos or custom designs require a setup and are approved by the customer before sewn on the final product. This can usually be used on a variety of products, including hats, shirts, bags and jackets. Read our blog entry on the quality of our embroidery.
Heat Transfers are traditionally used for decorating sports jerseys for names and numbers, but we have been using transfers for about 15 years for logos and others designs as well. Originally made using a thing vinyl that was printed and Cad cut to shape, today’s Digital Garment Transfers have progressed to the mainstream.
Many of the logos and decorations you see on retail garments use this technology today…it just so cool you don’t realize it’s a transfer. The new digital garment transfer offers an easy way to produce complex, multi-color designs without the cost or complexity of previous methods. These transfers utilize a unique media-ink transfer process that produces remarkably high-quality results with beautiful colors and incredible durability. In the years we have been using the new digital garment transfers, we have not had a single issue or complaint of the transfer peeling on coming off of the garment.
These transfers are particularly great for today’s high performance moisture wicking fabrics for both shirts and outerwear. Different fabrics and different applications call for specialty transfer products, so be sure you are dealing with a company who knows the difference. At Image Connection, we apply our transfers in house, and have been doing so for many years. For many uniform programs we stock the transfers in our warehouse so that we can apply them “on demand for your program. If you are interested in this option please call for more information.
Screen printed T-shirts are the most popular and cost efficient means of putting your logo or message on shirts. Screen printing is the least expensive option for high volume decoration, especially if you only require 1 or 2-colors. Each design must have the colors separated and re-created with film and a screen for each color. The more colors you need, the more expensive the set-up charge will be. While T-shirts are most popular, screen printing is also used on other products that can be printed flat like bags and towels. 24 Piece minimum order for new accounts.
Make a statement with patches and emblems! These are one of today’s trending methods for decorating apparel, especially hats.
For many years we’ve been using patches on shirts and outerwear for public service positions where lots of decorating detail is often needed in a smaller space. Often, we use fully embroidered patches to simulate direct embroidery without the thousands of stitches working to degrade the integrity of the garment.
Today hats with patches are extremely popular. We currently offer traditional embroidered patches, woven patches which afford us greater detail in a cleaner look, leather and faux leather patches, and a variety of printed patches utilizing different printing methods and fabric backgrounds depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
