Printing

 At SportsFront Ltd, we do vinyl heat transfers onto the garments and screen printing depending on the size of the order.

 In Vinyl Printing, a special sheet of polyurethane (PU) vinyl is cut to produce a design which is then heat applied to the garments. This method is quite durable and is normally produced in one colour of the PU film. Black and white colours are commonly used depending on the shade of the garment colour although there are many colours available for the printing including Hi-Vis and glittering colours.

 We use this method if the customer’s order is around 20 garments or less. If you specifically require the Vinyl printing for large quantities then please contact us to obtain a quote.

 Whereas, Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a garment, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the garment momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the garment and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed.

 After the print, the ink on each garment is dried in special sort of heat tunnel to cure it permanently onto the garment.

 We use this method for the large quantities usually starting from around 20 garments as this is more cost effective and quick for such orders so the discount is passed onto the customer.

 The pricing table is provided below. The price is per printing position onto the garment (except mesh bibs) and does not include the price of the garment. Quantity in the table represents the number of garments required by the customer.

Bibs Printing

 We specialize in the mesh bibs printing, the screen printing onto the bibs is more technical and requires extra care as the ink actually seeps through the bibs mesh cloth because of micro gap between the threads.

The pricing table for the mesh bibs printing is provided below. The price is per printing position onto the garment and does not include the price of the garment. Quantity in the table represents the number of garments required by the customer.
