How are your t shirts made?
Digital Direct: Digital Direct uses superior textile ink to print directly onto the apparel. When using Digital Direct on white apparel, the shirt fabric will be the white or transparent parts of your design. For example, the stars and white stripes of an American Flag would be the t-shirt itself. With darker t-shirts, we print a layer of white ink under the design then add the colored ink on top of that initial layer. The colored ink is then embedded directly into the white layer for a rich, vibrant effect. Using the above example, an American Flag would first be a white rectangle, with the red and blue elements printed on top of this initial layer of white. Therefore, these prints can feel a bit thicker than those on light-colored t-shirts.
Flex/Flock Print: A detailed look at each step
1. The Plot Foil First a special cutting machine, the plotter, cuts out your design from a plot foil. Every color is individually cut from its respective foil. Then comes the "weeding".; This is where employees require a great deal of patience, dexterity and a metal stylus to remove the unnecessary pieces from the foil by hand.
2. The Raw Materials In the meantime, our "stock dudes" search for the still unprinted t-shirt of your choice from the stock shelves and put it together with the design. Before it moves onto the next step, we give it a scrutinizing look over at quality control. Everything there? Great, then off to the press with the shirt and the foil.
3. The Press Now the t-shirt and the foil are pressed together. The pressing process is a very critical moment, where above all a good eye and experience is a must. The t-shirt is spread over the press and the foil is placed on the desired spot. Then it gets hot: depending on the printing method and color, the foils and fabric are melted together at 170 degrees Celsius for up to 20 seconds.
4. Check-in & Shipping A last good detailed look: is everything there and in the right position? If everything is correct, your t-shirt is packed and given to a logistics service provider, who brings it to you as quickly as possible. 5. And, do you like it? In short, we hope that you have fun with your new, personalized article of clothing.

Instructions for Flex and Flock Products

T-shirts should be washed inside out and set on a gentle machine cycle in cold water. Sparkle Flex should be hand washed.
When drying: Tumble dry on low heat. Machine drying not recommended for Sparkle Flex.
To avoid possible shrinkage: Lay flat to dry.
To maintain the life of the design, t-shirts should be ironed inside out on a low heat setting without the use of steam. This step also aids in refreshing the colors in the design.
