The image is screen-printed onto the garment by pushing plastic ink through a fine mesh, this is then heat-cured into the garment at 300 degrees. This will ensure a highly opaque and very durable print that wont run or fade when washed.
You can send through artwork in most formats- .jpeg, .tiff, .psd, .svg etc.
The main thing to consider is the size of the image- in order to properly print on a t-shirt the resolution needs to be around 300dpi. If you are unsure then try printing out the image at the size you want it to be on the shirt on your home printer. This is how it will come out on the shirt. You can also download a template on each badge page that you can put the image onto to send back at us
For badges the resolution can be lower (around 200dpi) but will still need to be quite high in order to ensure print quality.
We will mix up ink colours specifically based on the colours in your design, approximating them as closely as we can.
Front, back, sleeves, pretty much any area on a t-shirt can be printed as long as there is at least 2cm gap between the print and any seams on the garment. We can print close to or over the seams but would recommend against it- we can't guarantee the quality of the finish since the ink will be lifted off the garment and will distort the image
The largest print area available is A3 size.
Fruit of the Loom 'Valueweight' is our standard t-shirt. We also offer Gildan, Hanes, Jerzees, Ethicstar and Continental. We can supply prices on request for other brands, just email for a quote,
Once the artwork has been finalised and payment has been received we can get straight onto making your run up. Generally printing should be done within the week, although we can work to any reasonable timeframe so if you have left it to the last minute just tell us and we will see what we can do!
Badges can be made up quickly and despatched within 2 days of receipt of payment.
No, as each design needs to be made into a stencil for printing. This costs between £21-£65 depending on the complexity of the image you are having printed. Having more than one design will be charged accordingly with each design being a seperate run.

For screen printing there is a minimum line thickness of around 0.5 mm. If you have an image that is very detailed you may lose some fine-print detail, especially if you are printing light ink on a dark garment. For printing dark ink on light tees there can be more detail as a finer mesh can be used.
Yes, depending on requirements. A single t-shirt with a 1-colour print would be £12.
