Automated screen print process used for 1 colour print only.
The print is solid colour using standard colours, the pantone matching system or metallic colours such as gold and silver.

Screen printing is a stencil on a silk screen mesh with a photosensitive coating which is exposed to a bright UV light through a positive film. Once developed, the unexposed areas are washed out and the ink is forced through the screen leaving the design on the bag. This is conducted in house by our printers with more than 20 years experience. Lead time: 5 days
Transfer printing is ideal for full colour printing including 4 colour process. The design is printed onto a special carrier sheet which is then cover coated to hold the image. This is applied to the bag using a heat press. The main advantages are that more complex designs or branding can be achieved within a short lead time. Lead time: 14 days

Screen printing (4 colour process)
Screen printing using 4 colour process screens to print tints and shades not achievable in the regular screen printing process. This method is done at our China factory on fabric before the bag is constructed and has the advantage of printing on an unrestricted area of the bag. Lead time: 12-16 weeks
Sublimation is perfect if you require full colour printing on your bag or lanyard. The result gives vibrant colours which are long lasting and scratch resistant.

Embroidery is ideal for truly stylish and high quality finish.
