A heat press machine uses pressure and heat over pre-set periods of time to apply the heat transfer material unto apparel. Plotters are used to cut the shapes and artwork out on the vinyls before they are heat pressed unto the apparel. Our heat press printing produces outstanding result with high resolution and vibrant prints. Our heat transfer material comes with our full quality assurance. Choose from a wide range of colours and finishes for your prints, including matt, metallic, glitter and even 3M Scotchlite Reflective Vinyls.
Heat press printing’s digital printing method allows full-coloured artwork to be printed.
Full-coloured artwork refers to artwork which includes multiple colours, gradients, intricate details and photos!
Vinyl prints are great for single colour logos and artwork. Heat press printing’s vinyl printing method is commonly used to print sports teams t-shirts or jerseys which require individual names and numbers. Choose your desired colours from our array of vinyl colours such as matte gold, neon pink or yellow! We do not recommend printing small text or logos using this method of printing. The adhesive surface of the small text or logos may not be sufficient for them to remain pressed on fabric for a long time. Some artwork and logos which have both full-coloured and single colour graphic elements, will require both the digital print and vinyl print types.
T-shirt Artwork Design
Seen a design which you like? Have a vague idea of what your tee should look like? Or do you need a logo for your team?
At Ark Industries, our in-house design team is able to work with customers to create artwork, as well as assist in the preparation of artwork to be print-ready.
In some cases, a trace of a flattened artwork is needed in order to separate the colours and shapes for t-shirt printing.
Depending on the complexity of the artwork such as fine lines, it could take a designer a few minutes or a couple of hours to make the artwork print-ready!
T-shirt printing is not limited to the front and back of the t-shirt.
Choose to print on various positions on a t-shirt, such as the left or right chest, middle chest, sleeves, upper or lower back and bottom corners.
Depending on the following factors, we will recommend the most suitable t-shirt printing method for our customers:
• Required quantity of t-shirts to be printed
• Colours of artwork (whether it consists of solid colours or gradients)
• Intricacy of artwork (if there are fine details)
• Size of the artwork
• The amount of lead time available
• The budget
