At Quality Uniforms we have a team of knowledgeable staff with years experience in the industry. We take pride in the products and service we provide. We cater to small and large companies alike, with competitive pricing for 1 colour through to 4 colour process printing from one to thousands of units. We offer direct printing and both screen printed and digitally printed transfer options depending on the product / design that is to be screened and can advise clients who are unsure of the best type of printing for their purpose. A brief explanation of the 3 different methods are detailed below.
Direct Screen Printing
Screen printing (traditionally known as silkscreening) is regularly the option chosen when clients are looking at branding large areas of a product for maximum visual impact. Screen printing is most cost effective when doing large scale runs as the price per unit is determined by number of colours vs the number of items being printed. This makes it the ideal media for the branding of promotional giveaway items such as tee shirts, singlets or hoodies.
Screen Printed Transfers
We also offer the option of transfer printing. This process although slightly more expensive than direct screen printing can result in a slightly crisper, flatter finish and can be more suited to fine detailed multi colour prints. Unlike normal screen printing where ink is applied directly onto the item being branded, transfer prints are printed in reverse onto specialist release paper (allowing a perfect flat/even surface to print on for best results) and then applied onto the product by a heat press.
Specifically designed to combat technical multi colour logo reproductions. We can offer both digitally printed vinyl heat transfers as well as the latest in industry innovation 'Supacolour' transfers. As both options utilise digital print technology they are the perfect solution for high detail, tonal or photo quality production on either small or large run orders. For more information on these two digital offerings please use the branding dropdown from the main menu.
Pricing for screen printing is determined by the number of colours in the design/logo and the size of the print run (therefore each repeat order will need to be quoted on if the number of items being branded changes). Set up charges are determined by the number of colours in the design with one screen required for each colour used. Screen printed transfers work on the same principle with an additional fee for application. Both digital options have a fixed set up fee regardless of colours and are charged out based on the size of the print vs quantity. Please contact us for pricing on your specific job.
