Method of Customisation Descriptions:
Direct to Garment Printing
The bag is sprayed with a pre-treatment solution before been printed using a specialist printer that holds the bag on a platen which is positioned below the print heads. If you have a dark coloured bag a white base layer of ink is sprayed onto the shirt before the full-colour image is printed. The shirt is then cured using a heat tunnel or a garment heat press. This method is ideal for full-colour images and has great durability and washability properties.
Heat Transfer Vinyl (Flex)
This method of garment printing is produced using a vinyl cutter which cuts out the design and lettering, the excess area is then weeded away and the design is transferred to the garment using a heat press. This method is great to produce vibrant vector graphics and lettering onto the garment, however, it is less suitable for multi-coloured designs.
Print and Cut Vinyl (Flex)
Just like standard garment vinyl it is cut using a vinyl cutter and applied using a heat press, however, before this, the vinyl can be printed using a solvent printer. The production team firstly create a cutting contour for the image which is then printed and placed on the vinyl cutter. A magic eye on the vinyl cutter locates registration marks on the print and cuts around it using cut contour vector. This method of garment printing is great for printing full-colour images onto garments that have a defined vector outline.
The best file format is PNG files as these will allow for transparent background on your graphic. JPEG’s, and TIFF’s can also be used, however, if there’s a background on the graphic that’s a different colour to the garment being printed then that will appear on the final product. For best results, upload your file as a PNG with a transparent background, this ensures that what appears in your file is what will appear on the final product.
