Digital printing

Digital printing is the ideal printing technique for photos and colorful designs which have gradients. This printing technique does not last as long as flex and flock. The colors fade over time.

Digital Direct Printing

  • The print is sprayed directly onto the apparel by our Digital Direct machines.
  • Digital Direct works well with large designs, however the colors fade after the first few washes. This printing technique is optimal if a "vintage" look is desired. The design looks somewhat washed-out and vibrant colors are not to be expected.
  • Digital direct is not available for all of our products. Please find an overview of printable products here.

How do I get the best results with digital printing?

  • With photos: an unlimited number of colors are available for the design; color gradients are possible.
  • For designs with more than 3 colors and with color gradients.

What should I be aware of when using digital printing?

  • The design must be uploaded as a pixel graphic. What are the requirements for pixel graphics?
  • Colors fade over time.
  • Digital prints can only touch other design elements of the same print. It will not adhere to any other print type.
