Customisation - Embroidery

 

 

Embroidery is a great way to personalise the range of items chosen. Embroidered logos have a high perceived value and a quality look that printed items just can’t match.

 

To embroider logos onto items chosen the logo has to be digitized using specialist digitizing software. The end result is an embroidered logo that replicates the customer's artwork exactly.

 

Art Requirements

 

A vector art file from Illustrator or CorelDraw (.eps, .ai, .cdr) gives the best results and is much easier for us to work with.

 

A hi-resolution bitmap or .jpeg (300 dpi+).

 

Once the logo has been recreated ADM embroider the items ordered using the latest hi-tech machinery. These machines provide ADM with the capacity and flexibility to handle any size of order.

 

For the majority of text only embroidery there is no set up charge. ADM have a choice of fonts that the customer can choose from, please contact ADM for details. If a specific font is not available an origination charge would be incurred.

 

 

Advantages Of Using Embroidery

 

  • Up to 15 colours in the logo.
  • ADM can sample for client approval.
  • Quality textured feel to the logo.
  • Fixed setup costs regardless of colour.
  • Easy to repeat with no additional origination charges
  • Ideal for personalisation requirements when names, nicknames or positions are required on front breast pocket

 

Disadvantages Of Embroidered Logos

 

  • Can be expensive for large embroideries such as logos or text required on the back of fleece jackets

 

 

Customisation – Cad Cut Printing

 

 

Heat sealed printing is ideal when simple effective logos or just text are required to be printed.

 

Logos, text, names and numbers can all be cut using different types of vinyl material that give a range of effects. ADM can cut any name and number in any style and from a wide selection of colours, giving our customers the maximum impact for the range of clothing chosen.

 

They are then applied to the garments using a heat transfer system.

 

Art Requirements

 

A vector art file from Illustrator or CorelDraw (.eps, .ai, .cdr) gives the best results and is much easier for us to work with.

 

For CMYK images, a hi res bitmap over 300dpi is needed (.jpg, .tif)

 

Ideally fonts should be embedded. This means that fonts should be converted into outlines or curves wherever possible. It is preferred that the font file is also provided by the customer.

 

Advantages Of Cad Cut Printing

 

  • 1 colour prints
  • Low setups.
  • Very opaque.
  • No PMS Match – there is a set range of colours for each material.
  • Great consistency of colour for repeat orders.
  • Perfect for team names and numbers on sports gear.

 

Disadvantages Of Cad Cut Printing

 

  • Small Lettering. When the lettering gets detailed, the knife cannot cut it out.
  • Can get expensive for larger size logos

 

 

Customisation – Digital Printing

 

 

This is a 1440dpi CMYK solvent ink print onto a white vinyl sheet that can be heat pressed on to fabric. Our printer can cut to any shape to suit the logo, often not leaving a white border if the logo doesn’t need it.

 

Art Requirements

 

A vector art file from Illustrator or CorelDraw (.eps, .ai, .cdr) gives the best results and is much easier for us to work with.

For CMYK images, a hi res bitmap over 300dpi is needed (.jpg, .tif)

 

Advantages Of Digital Printing

 

  • Fast turnaround because there is no inks to mix or screens to make.
  • This process is great for highly detailed photographic images or images with more than 4 colours.
  • For nylon bags and other garments that will never be washed, this process is the best.
  • Bright vibrant colours
  • As it is a digital process it is very easy to make each garment unique.

 

Disadvantages Of Digital Printing

 

  • As it is a CMYK process some PMS colours are difficult to match, we will do our best but we do not guarantee exact colour matches.
  • If the file is a bitmap often if you adjust the image one colour may be right but this will affect the other colours.
  • Small Lettering. When the lettering gets detailed, the knife cannot cut it out accurately so sometimes we need to put an area of colour the same as the garment colour behind it.
  • As this is a print onto a vinyl material the colour will fade after a number of washes. We leave the transfers to dry for at least 12 hours before transferring and our longevity is good but it will not be as good as a screen print or and embroidery.

 

 

Customisation – Screen Printing

 

 

Screen printing is a long established method of printing logos and text onto garments. Art is separated into the different colours and a screen is made for each. Each colour is printed directly onto the garment so the print is only 1 layer thick.

 

Art Requirements

 

A vector art file from Illustrator or CorelDraw (.eps, .ai, .cdr) gives the best results and is much easier for us to work with.

 

Ideally fonts should be embedded. This means that fonts should be converted into outlines or curves wherever possible. It is preferred that the font file is also provided by the customer.

 

Advantages Of Screen Printing

 

  • Ideal for high volume printing
  • Great for logos up to 7 colours.
  • Nice soft thin print.
  • Perfect colour matching to PMS.
  • Great consistency of colour for repeat orders.
  • Will last for the life of the garment.

 

Disadvantages Of Screen Printing

 

  • Over a long period of time the printed design may have a washed out appearance. This will be due to the general care taken when washing the garment over a given period of time and not due to the print procedure itself..
