Heat Pressed Garment Printing is a printing technique that uses die cut vinyls or printed vinyls and a heat press machine which is engineered to imprint a design or graphic on a substrate, such as a t-shirt, with the application of heat and pressure for a preset period of time. While heat presses are often used to apply designs to fabrics, they can also be used to imprint designs on mugs, plates, jigsaw puzzles, fabrics, phone cases, glass, and other substrates & products.
With heat pressing we can do a minimum of (6) T-Shirt or small run orders, with a variety of different types of vinyls or printables.
We offer full colour to just lettering on your favorite shirt or jersey. You can either bring us in a garment to print on or we can order you the stock through our suppliers.

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto a substrate, whether it be t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or other material.
Screen printing is also a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of polyester or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is forced into the mesh openings by the fill blade or squeegee and onto the printing surface during the squeegee stroke. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.
Screen printing is a bit of a process and isn’t a quick turnaround kind of product. There is some precision and craftsmanship that goes into this traditional method of garment printing in the industry. The average screen printing job takes approximately 10-14 business days to complete and this is at time of production. We offer full graphic design on all types of garments.
