Branding Information
Embroidery
A design is stitched onto material through the use of high speed, computer
controlled sewing machines. Artwork must first be “digitised”, which is the
specialised process of converting two-dimensional artwork into stitches or
thread. The digitiser must actually recreate the artwork using stitches. The sewing
machine is programmed to sew a specific design, in a specific colour, with a
specific type of stitch. This is the process known as digitising. Embroidery is most
commonly used on apparel & caps or hats.

Pad Printing
An etched plate is covered with ink, and then wiped clean, leaving ink in the
recessed areas. A silicone pad is then pressed against the plate, pulling the ink
out of the recesses, and pressing it directly onto the product.

Screen Printing
Screen printing typically uses a fabric stretched tightly over a frame. Images are
created by blocking parts of the screen using various techniques. Ink is forced
through the open areas of the screen onto the surface of the object. A separate
screen must be created for each colour to be printed and colours must be
applied in passes allowing drying time between each. This is the most common
method of imprinting on flat promotional items such as t-shirts & bags.

Engraving
The process of permanently marking the surface of an item with a very high
intensity light source. Laser is divided into 2 main categories: CO
2
laser, which is
cutting and marking on organic items (cork, wood, glass, plastic, leather) and YAG
laser which is used for marking metals.

Dome Stickers
A thin layer of polyurethane resin is applied to a digital sticker, creating a 3D effect.

Heat Transfer Printing
A digital image is printed onto a specialised vinyl. The vinyl is then placed onto
the product in the correct position, at thiss point the product is placed in a heat
press, and the heat from the press melts the adhesive backing on the vinyl, merg-
ing it with the fabric.

Vinyl Stickers
Stickers are digitally printed in full colour and then automatically cut into almost
any shape.

Debossing creates an image pressed into the surface of an object, creating a “hol-
low” impression on the surface of the item, usually used on leather.
