How We do It
We won’t bore you with the ins and outs but there are a few options for getting your design out into the world. Give us a call and we can talk you through your choices and see what would work best with your design, numbers and materials.
However, if you ARE interested, come behind the screens and see what we do here at Artystar.
Traditional screen printing
Screen printing is great for a high quality, durable design, not dissimilar to those you see in your favourite shops. We take the colours of your image and use our specialist screen printing plates to push the ink though your design area. We get it heated up to the right temperature and there you have it, it’s as simple(ish) as that!
If you’re looking at placing a bulk order this could be the right option for you but if you’re not sure we are always on the other end of the phone to offer help and advice. Just give us a call on 07922 141379.
Heat Press Vinyl
Heat press vinyl is a great lower cost option which can be used on many different textiles so you can keep your branding consistent across the different products. Just to keep it simple, we’ll design the image with our software, cut it and press it onto your garment. With our years of experience, we’ll make sure you get an accurate and professional finish.
There are plenty of different types of vinyl thickness, durability and even metallic and glitter styles depending on the look you are aiming for so send us a message and we can help you pick which will be best for your project.
If you had your morning coffee from a printed mug, chances are it has been printed using dye sublimation. Although many people haven’t heard about it in the same way as they have embroidery or screen printing, dye sublimation is a great, permanent method to use for your products.
We take your images, text and logos and apply them to your chosen surface using a heat press which, here comes the science bit, makes the inks convert from a solid to a gas. The gas embeds into the product through the pores and when the pores close it converts back to a solid to make sure you have a long lasting and durable product.
