Branding Your Uniforms

Different Options of Branding

Many people don’t think about the different types of artwork that are available for uniforms and workwear until they are asked the question by their uniform supplier.

There are a few different options for applying artwork to your garments, but the most popular are Embroidery and Direct to Film (DTF) Printing, although we are doing more and more Dye Sublimation and Heat Press Transfers.

What is Embroidery?

Embroidery is the process of using thread to stitch your logo or image onto almost any apparel, including hats, caps, polo shirts, t-shirts, singlets, jackets, hoodies, pants, skirts, and any other corporate clothing. Embroidery is generally used to add your logo to the front of your garments to make your team look professional and visible to customers whether you are in a retail environment or you visit customers and clients at their own premises. Embroidery is a better alternative to a corporate for the professional environment than screen printing as it looks more stylish and lasts longer than printing. Pricing of embroidery varies depending on how detailed your logo or image is and how many stitches it will take to apply your artwork. Quantity if items being embroidered is also a factor.

What is Dye Sublimation?

Dye sublimation of clothing is a printing process where heat transfers dye into fabric fibers, resulting in vibrant, long-lasting designs that don’t fade, crack, or peel. This method is ideal for custom apparel like sports jerseys and promotional t-shirts, as it preserves the garment’s original feel and breathability.  They are also makes it ideal for team uniforms, and corporate events, offering high-quality, durable, and visually striking apparel.

When ordering custom dye sublimated clothing, a minimum order of 20 garments is required. 

What is Direct to Film Printing?

Direct to Film printing, or DTF, is a type of heat-transfer print, although it is found to be more resilient that standard heat press transfers, as the artwork is printed onto transfer film before being applied to garments.

What is Heat Press Printing?

Heat press transfer printing is a popular method for decorating garments due to its ability to produce high-quality, vibrant designs on a variety of fabrics.  This technique is especially suitable for t-shirts, sportswear, and promotional apparel.

This option is ideal for smaller print orders as there is no small order surcharge.
