Screen Printing is the process of applying ink to a fabric or material using a mesh or silk screen adding one color at at time. The graphic is applied to the top of the material adding addition feel and weight.

Sublimation is the process of printing a special sublimation ink, onto sublimation transfer paper, using a sublimation printer. Unlike screen printing the ink becomes part of the fabric and adds no added feel or weight.

Digital printing uses special ink that is directly applied to the garment using a special printer that prints the desired design to a precise location. Similar to printing on paper.

Heat Transfer Vinyl is a process of applying vinyl graphics to a fabric using a commercial heat press. The colors are applied one at a time and must be heated correctly to ensure proper garment adherence.

Die Cut Decals are single color or multi colored designs printed onto adhesive paper or vinyl. They are then cut precisely to the desired design outline using a special die cutting machine or plotter. Often used on cars, windows or personal items such as tumblers.

My daughter qualified for the Jr Olympics and we were looking for something cool and unique to put on the back of our club shirt. We didn't give a lot of notice, but they were able to create and print something very quickly and we are very satisfied with the work. I recommend anyone looking for products with vinyl to use 502 Designs. They are reasonably priced and produce great products. We can't wait to wear our shirts and support our daughter and her club.
