Screen printing or silk screening is a printing technique particularly suited for flat or relatively flat surfaces. The heart of the process involves a fine mesh or screen that is tightly stretched around a rigid frame. The areas that are not to be printed are masked out on the screen. To create the print, the framed screen is positioned over the item to be printed along with a dollop of thick ink. A squeegee is then used to press the ink through the screen. The masked areas prevent ink from passing through, but the unmasked areas allow the ink to be imprinted on the material. This heated curing process ensures that the inks dry quickly so that they materials can be stacked or packaged. Properly cured inks will remain on the printed substrate even under harsh conditions and will wear well even after numerous washes.

Embroidery is the process whereby a customer gets a digitised design sewn onto garments. When we expanded our screen printing facility to include embroidering, we enabled our customers put their branding on a much wider range of garments.
Garments that heretofore did not allow us to screen print images onto, like fleeces, jackets, sports bags, towels or caps can now be embroidered with relative ease. Corporate's, Sports Clubs Charities and other organizations have now a much wider scope for advertising.
We have two state-of-the-art fully automated embroidery machines that enable us to recreate logos with up to 15 different colours.
