What happens when you place an order?

After you have placed your t-shirt printing order and informed us of the t-shirts, sizes and colours required you will be asked to email over your artwork. The perfect way to send your artwork is in a vectored format in an EPS file, PDF file, or AI. However we know things aren't as simple as that so please just send what you have in the format you have it in. 9 times out of 10 we can make it print ready for you at no extra cost. The first 30 minutes of artwork is free any further work incurs a charge of £30.00 per hour.

When we have your artwork print-ready we will  send you a digital proof showing the layout, colours and positioning of your design, when you have received this please check thoroughly, we can make any changes you require at this stage. We will not print your order until you are 100% happy with the proof. Once you have approved it we will then go to print and will not be able to make any further changes. Our lead time from this point is usually 7 days.



Screen-printing is a stencil method of printing and is the oldest and most popular method of t-shirt printing. in which a design is placed on a fine mesh ‘screen’, blank areas are then coated with an impermeable substance before ink is forced through the mesh in the open areas onto the garment surface. Also known as silkscreen or serigraphy. Our normal method of screen printing is with plasticol inks. If you require a different method of screen printing please call us to discuss.

  • Screen-printing is ideal for larger runs of up to 8 colours.
  • Screen printing is also the most cost effective way to print your garments.

Heat Transfer Vinyl

The heat transfer printing method uses heat and pressure to transfer a block print from a piece of transfer paper to the desired object. We strongly recommend this for 1 colour logos and sport kits; absolutely the best quality finish for any print up to A3 in size.

  • Melts onto the fabric with no surrounding boxes and garment moves freely and naturally.
  • Great for logos numbers and text
Heat Transfer Print

Heat Transfer Print And Cut

T-shirt transfer printing is used to produce bright and vibrant full colour prints.
It's also used to print onto nylon fabrics including waterproofs, jackets and lycra sports and leisurewear.
Low cost so it's often used as an alternative to Direct to Garment Printing for low volume orders.
We can use standard heat transfer printing materials as well as flock, foil and high gloss metallic effect transfers.

Digital Printing

Digital printing or Direct To Garment Printing is a relatively new concept in t-shirt printing. It works in much the same way as ink jet printing but with the added complication of printing, not onto paper, but onto cotton. What sets it apart from other printing processes is that it can produce much higher resolution prints, making it great for replicating detailed images onto your t-shirt. When digital printing onto anything but white t-shirts a pre-treatment must be used. This may leave a residue on the garment. This is an integral part of the process and will disappear after the first wash.

It also involves no set-up and is perfect for low numbers – the minimum order is just one!


Using state-of-the art multiple head computerized embroidery machines we can produce up to 15 separate colour threads per design. We first load your digitized logo into our computerized embroidery machines and then select the coloured threads to match your specification. To ensure accurate positioning and logo placement every time we use a Hoop Master, Measure, Taylors chalk pre printed guides.
