Being a T-Shirt Printing company, we find that corporate companies make up a huge portion of our customer base. Why is this so? We believe this is due to the rapid growth of companies, especially in the technological space.

For example, let’s take a look at the recent spurts of growth tech companies such as FinTech where new start-ups are created every single day.

Marketing

Custom T-Shirts are a great tool for marketing. Every corporate company wants their brand to be out there. Of course, apart from setting up an online presence of your brand, there will be opportunities for you to spread your brand awareness on the ground.

For example, if you are running a roadshow to promote your company, you can always print or embroider on T-Shirts or Polo Shirts with your brand or company logo so people will register them in their head when you are speaking to potential customers.

You can also giveaway T-Shirts as a gift for customers to spread your brand awareness. When people wear them on the street, it is basically free advertising of your company on the ground!

Corporate Uniform

Whether you are a start-up or an enterprise, corporate T-Shirts or uniform can foster a sense of belonging for employees and business owners. When you wear T-Shirts imprinted with your company logo, you’ll feel a sense of belonging and feel to be part of a company that you are proud of.

When you and your employee wear the corporate apparels, it can also play a part in marketing when people decide to find out what your company does.

1. Custom-Made Apparels (Made-to-Order)

Firstly, we are going to share with you about custom-made apparels (made-to-order) service. As the name suggest, this service is a made-to-order service.

2. Silk Screen Printing

Next, we are going to look into our most popular method of print. Silk screen printing is a method where ink is imprinted directly onto the apparels.

Silk screen printing process involves the making of ‘mould’ which consist of the ‘screen’ mesh in which ink will pass through to imprint your design onto the apparel.

Why Choose Silk Screen printing Service?

Silk screen printing is popular for 2 main reasons. Durability and Price.

It is known for its durability because silk screen printing can last for thousands of washes without fading, making it possibly the longest lasting method of print in Singapore.

It is also very cost efficient, especially for bulk quantity printing. If you are printing in bulk quantities, chances are silk screen printing will give you the best prices.

The simplest explanation of embroidery is that it involves intricate needlework where colored threads are stitched onto a piece of fabric or product to form a design or pattern.

It is also the method of print for Individual Names + Numbers on the T-Shirts or apparels.

5. Sublimation Printing

Sublimation printing is the process where ink is sublimated into the fabric (100% nylon / polyester) at high temperature.

The unique feature of sublimation printing is precisely that the ink is in the fabric. This is in contrast to other digital transfer methods such as digital heat transfer printing where the printing is done on the exterior of the fabric.

Why Choose Sublimation Printing Service?

If you have designs that comes in many colors or gradient colors, silk screen printing will not be feasible, or it can get very expensive.

Sublimation printing is able to print unlimited colors of design onto the polyester dri-fit fabric. It also involves a cut & sew process after the printing of designs to create an “all-over” printing of apparels.

Lead time of Sublimation Printing

Our lead-time for Sublimation Printing services will be about 3-4 weeks after confirmation of order. It is similar to made-to-order apparels because there are no readily available sublimated products with your designs.

6. Direct-to-Garment DTG Printing

Last but not least, there is the latest technology of printing – DTG Printing.

Imagine having a big printer, and you print directly onto the garment, for example t-shirts, using modified inkjet technology. This method allows you to print your picture directly onto your apparel without losing any of the details.

Why Choose DTG Printing Service?

If you have designs that comes in many colors or gradient colors, silk screen printing will not be feasible, or it can get very expensive.

It is also capable of printing real life images or complex designs on t-shirts.

Lead time of DTG Printing

Our lead-time for DTG Printing services will be about 10 working days after confirmation of order.

This is because, just like a printer, you can only print 1 T-Shirt at a time and it is not scalable in terms of production speed.
