We offer in-house embroidery and a wide range of printing techniques to meet our clients requirements. Our experience enables us to match the most appropriate technique to your requirements for design, budget, quantity and style of finish.

In-house embroidery

We have two single head embroidery machines with 15 needles. Embroidery is our most trusted and popular personalisation technique giving a durable and professional result. There is a one-time set-up charge of 35 EUR to cover the costs of digitising the logo into a jacquard (embroidery programme) which enables the embroidery machine to embroider the design onto the garment. The programme is retained on file for use on subsequent customer orders. 

Digital thermal transfer 

Suitable for small quantities onto white garments. This technique is particularly appropriate for full-colour images with gradient or shading. The design is printed onto thermal transfer paper, cut-out and then heat pressed and sealed onto the garment. It is less durable than embroidery but suitable for giveaways and disposable products. This technique is particularly cost-effective for smaller quantities.

One or Two colour vinyl print

Suitable for small quantities and can be printed onto light and dark coloured garments. Suitable for text or simple designs with one or two colour without gradient or shading. An outline has to be added around each part of the image. The outline is digitally cut into a sheet of plain vinyl in reverse. The excess vinyl is removed prior to heat pressing onto the garment. The vinyl sits on top of the garment rather and produces a very sharp glossy finish.


Suitable for printing medium to large quantities (30+pcs) with up to 8 colours. Ideal for promotional t-shirts, caps and shopper bags. It involves the application of colour with ink directly through a fine-mesh screen onto the garment or bag.
Screenprinting requires separating the design into separate colours and layers. A separate screen is made for each colour of the design. When printing directly onto the garment, the screen is placed into position on the garment or bag and the layer of ink is pushed through the screen onto the garment or bag.

Pantone colours can be matched with this technique. This technique allows enables printing of complex designs in medium and large quantities with a sharp finish.
