Which is Best for Hoodies: Embroidery, Screen Print or Heat Transfer?
If you need a large order printed quickly, screen printing is the better option. We have digital embroidery machines that can deliver the highest quality work. The amazing thing about screen printing is that our machines can print over 700 garments an hour. This is because each individual colour of the logo needs an individual screen. This makes the cost a little higher and not worth it for a smaller order.
If your logo has a bit more colour or is a little smaller, then heat transfer is the best option. It involves cutting the logo design out of vinyl and then pressing it into the garment. Vinyl can be washed up to sixty degrees Celsius, and can be dry cleaned. Its elasticity also contributes to how durable it is. You’ll be able to keep your employee uniforms in top shape for months or even years! This is also our most budget friendly option, so we definitely recommend it for smaller order or if you’re trying to cut costs.
If you need your hoodies to look professional for the workplace, then embroidery is your best bet. Our zipped hoodies are quite popular. This method is mainly used on business wear to convey professionalism. Our machines simulate traditional handmade stitches. It also makes the garment last longer, so you don’t have to worry about the logo fading or getting scratched off. Embroidery is commonly seen in luxury clothing ranges, such as Polo shirts Softshell jackets. Your order must be, at minimum, eight garments. Turnaround time is only one week, and all the manufacturing is done in house.
How Your Hoodie Order Works
Once you go to our website, you can select a minimum of five garments. Send us your logo and we will then create a visual mockup of the final product and send it to you for approval. You can ask us to make any necessary changes. Once the visual is approved, we will go ahead and begin production of the garments.
