Embroidery is our most popular decoration. This is the process of sewing or embroidering your logo or lettering directly into the garment or other product. Logos or custom designs require a setup and are approved by the customer before sewn on the final product. This can usually be used on a variety of products, including hats, shirts, bags and jackets. Read our blog entry on the quality of our embroidery.
We are very excited about offering this technology. It is now practical for us to offer T shirts with full color prints including minute detail, color fads, halftones, etc using our Direct to Garment printer. There are limitations to which of the products we can print on. With white t-shirts being the most practical, there are NO SET-UP FEES, LOW 12 PIECE MINIMUM and quick turn-around. We offer you the easiest and most vibrant prints available today.
If you are trying to achieve an embroidered look and want an affordable approach, we can offer you an embroidered emblem. It can be sewn on, or purchased with an adhesive backing. This can help you achieve the embroidered look at a more economical price. This is especially beneficial if you have larger or detailed embroidery as well as a lot of products to decorate. Please call for minimum order pricing.
Screen printed T-shirts are the most popular and cost efficient means of putting your logo or message on shirts. Screen printing is the least expensive option for high volume decoration, especially if you only require 1 or 2-colors. Each design must have the colors separated and re-created with film and a screen for each color. The more colors you need, the more expensive the set-up charge will be. While T-shirts are most popular, screen printing is also used on other products that can be printed flat like bags and towels. 24 Piece minimum order for new accounts.
Heat Transfers are traditionally used for decorating sports jerseys for names and numbers, but we use it for designs and logos as well. One color transfers are created using a thin vinyl that is cut to shape and applied to a flat surface on apparel or bags. Multiple color projects are created on a transfer that is printed. Contour cut (to shape) and then transferred to the garment. Heat transfers are particularly great for today’s high performance fabrics for both shirts and outerwear. Different fabrics and different applications call for specialty transfer products, so be sure you are dealing with a company who knows the difference. At Image Connection, we create our transfers in house, and have been doing so for many years. If you are interested in this option please call for more information.
For your safety or security, we offer reflective transfers cut and applied to shirts, jackets, safety vests, etc. We can create a single word as required such as SECURITY, or cut and use your logo in a reflective transfer.
