Embroidery

This technique consists of sewing threads to create a pattern on the fabric.

The embroidery is quite classic and offers to your textile a very great elegance. It is also very resistant but it does not always make it possible to reproduce all the details of a visual.

Its cost depends on the number of stitching points and its quantity. In addition, digitization fees are also applicable.

Advantages :

Elegant
Very resistant

Constraints :

High digitisation costs to be paid only for the first order
Requires a strong mesh (no embroidery on t-shirts)
Requires a vector file before you can work

Screen printing

The screen printing is based on the stencil principle and the ink is applied directly to the textile. It is then dried at 180°.

It is suitable for cotton, nylon, polyester and non-woven materials. This is the most widely used technique in textile printing.

Its price depends on the medium, the number of parts to be printed and the number of colours.

Advantages :

Fine details
Good durability over time
Good price/quality ratio

Constraints :

A lot of technical costs
, Not interesting for small quantities
Flat printing
Requires a vector file before you can work

Heat transfer

The pattern is printed on siliconized paper and then covered with a layer of glue. Using a hot press, the printed pattern is transferred to the textile.

The transfer offers an optimal result and is perfect for logos with many colours.

The cost of the transfer depends on the printing size and the number of parts to be printed.

Advantages :

Very faithful result
Fine details and possibility of gradation
Possibility to keep the sheets for later printing

Constraints :

Interesting from 10 to 50 pieces

 

Flex / Flock

Ideal for small quantities or customizations, flex consists of cutting a predefined vinyl sheet using a digital plotter. The cutting is then weeded and applied to the textile using a hot press.

This technique also makes it possible to print with different textures such as a glitter effect or a jeans effect.

Advantages :

Very clear result because cut with a blade
Wide selection of original materials (Glitter effect, Gold, Silver, Brick, Down, Perforated, etc...)
Ideal for small quantities

Constraints :

Number of colours limited by the range of rollers
Not suitable for "complicated" logos
Requires a vector file before you can work
