WHAT IS SUBLIMATION PRINTING? Sublimation is only possible on white cotton fabrics. Sublimation is when the sublimation ink is heat pressed INTO the shirt. Durability is also very good. Check out this video of a T-shirt being printed using the SUBLIMATION process

  • -Cost
  • -Breathable
  • Vibrancy
  • -Durability
  • -Comfort
  • -No Design Limitations
  • -Only on white fabrics

WHAT IS VYNIL PRINTING? Vinyl is a flexible plastic sheet that is stuck, and heat pressed ON TOP of the shirt. This means that you will have a thin layer of the vinyl ON TOP the shirt. With Sublimation and Direct to Garment printing the design goes directly INTO the shirt which makes the shirt “breathable”. Vinyl does not allow the shirt to breathe (especially with thin fabrics such as t-shirts) so please take this into account when deciding which printing method to use. German Turbo Vinyl (the quality we use) is the best type of vinyl because it’s very thin and very long lasting. Most of the competition use cheap Chinese Vinyl that cracks and peels after a few washes so please very careful. Do NOT accept this quality even if it is for free!! Beware of the competition!! Check out this video of a T-shirt being printed using VINYL and PRINTABLE VINYL

  • -Cost
  • -Vibrancy

WHAT IS DIRECT TO GARMENT (DTG) PRINTING? DTG is the BEST printing method. With Direct to Garment (DTG) you’re able to have UNLIMITED COLOURS with UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES . The DTG ink is printed directly INTO the shirt so it looks and feels really natural. DTG is especially amazing with colourful portraits, or images. Most printing shops do not have Direct to Garment printing (for many reasons) so be very careful . The competition uses a technique called TRANSFER PAPER. Please be very careful of print shops using transfer paper which is basically a printed paper that is stuck onto the shirt. Can you imagine how this will feel and look? Miserable!! Check out this video of a T-shirt being printed using the DIRECT TO GARMENT method

  • -NO design limitations
  • -Breathable
  • -Comfortable
  • -Vibrancy
  • -Durable
  • -Ink Printing
  • -Works best when done with 100% cotton
  • -Cost
  • -Takes 3 times longer to print
  • -Glue base might affect the feel
  • -Glue might need to be washed off
  • -Hoodies & sweatshirts are 50% cotton so prints not as vibrant

WHAT IS EMBROIDERY? Embroidery is when we stitch your design into the clothing or hats. Embroidery has its limitations but it’s also really amazing. Please keep in mind that the threads are solid colours so you cannot embroider designs that have colourful shadings or lots of tiny details. Another thing to also keep in mind is that whenever we embroider, we need to “digitize” the logo. Digitizing is basically programming and telling the machine how to stitch the logo. This process takes exceptionally long and costs between $35 and $75 per design, depending on the amount of stitches and the complexity of the logo. Check out this video of a T-shirt, hat, polo, and hoodie being EMBROIDERED

What is DTG printing?

DTG printing (Direct to Garment) is the best type of printing method for clothing. It deposits special ink directly into the item. No one else in Montreal offers DTG printing! Unlike other printing methods, such as silk screening or vinyl there are no limitations as to what you can do with DTG printing. This allows us to print any type of design onto your shirts. Our competitors cannot offer what we can offer. With our state of the art and very expensive DTG machines, we can do what others can’t. This is the best quality printing method available in the industry. DTG (Direct to Garment) is without a doubt the best method to print on clothing. Since this is a digital process, the print is sharper and has a higher resolution, or DPI, than traditional printing methods such as screen printing. Unlike screen printing (which is vastly inferior to DTG), DTG has the ability to print just one single shirt for minimal cost. DTG has a stronger bond between garment fibers pigmented inks, resulting in longer lasting prints and a better durability.

We will choose the most appropriate type of printing according to many variables such as complexity of design, size of order, color of fabric, type of fabric and due date. Rest assured we will deliver an excellent print! Please note that we cannot guarantee that a smaller sized order will be printed with the same print method as a larger sized order.

We do the work the moment the order and payment are processed. Unlike our competitors, we have a huge inventory in stock and all the printing is done same day in-house. We will let you know once your order is ready!

Please be aware that on rare occasions, we may not be able to complete an order in the aforementioned timeframe due to many variables that may be out of our control.
