Print Technology: We offer two types: plot
printing and digital direct.
Plot Printing (Flex & Flock)
Plot printing provides superior printing results that are
long-lasting and the colors won't fade. Flex has a slightly
shiny surface and is smooth to the touch while Flock has
a soft feel, like a thin layer of velvet. Both are extremely
durable and are for designs with 3 colors or less. Also
available are specialty flex (glitter, sparkle & glow-in-the-dark)
as well as "writable" flex which allows you to
write on the print using any washable marker (which is provided!).
Specialty and writable flex is only available for 1 color
designs. Most of our designs are plot printed.
Digital Direct uses superior textile ink to print directly
onto the apparel without the use of transfers.
With darker t-shirts, we print a layer of white ink under
the design first and white elements of the design will be
printed. The colored ink is then embedded directly into
the white layer for a rich, vibrant effect. Therefore, these
prints can feel slightly thicker than those on light-colored
t-shirts. This print method is ideal for designs with more
than 3 colors or photographs. We offer a few designs printed
with Digital Direct. Also, if you upload your own graphic
in our designer shop, it will be printed with Digital Direct
(or Digital Transfer, depending on the product).
