What is full colour digital printing for light garments? – Using a digital printer, we lay down a textile ink in reverse onto a transfer sheet. This sheet is then turned and fused to the garment using a heat press.

Uses – Great for promotional t-shirts when maximum impact is needed on a budget, or, event garments such as hen, stag or holiday t-shirts. We would usually print full colour artwork or photographs using this method but only on white or very light garments. The finish of the print is bright and punchy but these prints will not wash over and over again (by following our washing guidelines, the garment can be washed up to 5 times without losing any print quality).

Advantages –

  • No set-up costs.
  • Full colour stunning prints on a budget.
  • Quick to produce.
  • Full colour designs up to A3 size.
