Vinyl

This is a Popular way for personalising a T-Shirt. The design is cut out of a sheet of vinyl and melted/pressed into the fabric.

  • Advantages: No minimum Order, We can print 1+ T-shirts (sorry no half T-shirts). Good Life, lasts as well as the Tshirt.
  • Disadvantages: Cost increases with multiple colours. Time consuming to make so best for 20 or less. There is a limit to the complexity of the design.
  • Cost: 12€ (including IVA) if design is simple with discounts for Quantity.

Screen Print

Fantastic for intricate designs and large quantities. A special fabric ink is printed into the fabric and then heated. The heat turns the ink into PVC plastic, permanently fixing the design to the fabric.

  • Advantages: Highly complex Designs can be printed at a low cost. Good Life, lasts as well as the Tshirt.
  • Disadvantages: Cost increases with multiple colours. A printing plate (the screen) has to be made with the design in it. Multiple colours means multiple plates and extra time.
  • Cost: 4.50€ (including IVA) per T-shirt + a one off cost of 35€ for each plate
