A printing technique where the design is cut from a coloured foil and then pressed onto the shirt under high heat.
Some flex printing features are: -Vibrant colours The printed colours have a slight shine to them and contrast extremely well with fabric. Longevity and durability Tests have shown that the form and color of the flex print barely change after 100 washes. It is made of a flexible and resilient material - even thin lines do not break. How do I get the best results with flex?
The design must be uploaded as a vector graphic . such as SVG, EPS, AI for the best quality print.
Maximum of 3 colors per design.
Flock: Very similar to vinyl is flock, flock print has a velvety, fuzzy surface. The foil (0.5 mm) is somewhat thicker than flex, which causes the design to appear slightly elevated from the apparel and results in the plush feel. The colors have a soft glow to them.
Specialty flex: prints differ from normal flex prints due to the special visual effects in the printing foils.
Designs printed with these foils glisten and reflect light. The sparkle foil looks like confetti made with small, shiny pieces. The glitter foil has finer pieces and can be compared with metallic paint on cars. Both foils have intense colors. Glow-in-the-dark, Reflective and Camo
In addition to the glitter and sparkle foils, we also offer a glow-in-the-dark foil, a silver reflective foil and a camo foil.
Digital Transfer and Digital Transfer Overlay
The design is first printed onto a transfer paper before it is pressed onto the shirt. Digital Transfer Overlay prints can be cut to the exact shape of the design or photo. Digital Transfer prints will have a thin line around the design. Compared to Digital Direct, the Digital Transfer and Digital Transfer Overlay designs are truer to the original color and more durable.
Digital Transfer Overlay can be printed on all fabric colors. However, Digital Transfer designs can only be printed on white and some natural products.
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking Stencil The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A squigee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.
