What is Embroidery?
Embroidery creates your logos through stitching. When you upload your design, it first has to be digitised – something that has to be done with most designs unless it’s just text you require. This adds virtual stitches over your artwork, so the machines know where to stitch. Then it’s time for production and our skilled team manage our three embroidery machines to make sure every design is spot on.
Please be aware that service time will vary according to our workload.
Why Choose Embroidery?
Sometimes it can be tricky to decide between print and embroidery. But ultimately it’s about what kind of finish you want. Embroidery looks very different to print as the thread is slightly raised. It creates a professional finish that has a texture. Embroidery is best for small logos or designs with detail. Our machines can achieve perfect detailed logos. It’s ideal for everything from workwear logos and University logos to just plain old text.
We can print t-shirts in our Newcastle shop on a same day service (work load permitting). Vinyl printing is great for everything from printing the back of football shirts to all things Stag & Hen Do related.
Vinyl is an ideal print method for solid simple designs that need strong colour and good washability. It is ideal for short-run and one-off items and can be applied to any coloured garment and nearly every fabric type.
We advise caution when used on super stretchy dance, gym and swim wear as the vinyl will reduce the stretch of the fabric, and might be prone to a shorter life.
Screen printing is perhaps the most traditional way to decorate larger numbers of garments. Logobear have invested in digital screen generation, so our prints can hold more fine detail than traditionally expected. We can offer screen printing on jobs starting from 25 items or more and typically this could take a few days – it’s always worth checking with us first.
The system we use has a maximum print area of 240x470mm and is good for 1 and 2 colour applications. Because we use digital screens, incredible halftone detail is possible.
Laser transfer is how we began garment printing in 1990. It still has a place today and has come a long way since then. Laser transfer is FAST and is perfect for full-colour designs on white fabrics. It can include text, photos, logos, drawings – anything – all with the same price and process. It does lose some strength over time, but I have T-shirts I made over 20 years ago that still carry an uncracked print.
It has a soft feel after the first wash and is an inexpensive way to get full colour on small and medium runs of up to 200 items. Always on a super-fast turnaround, usually an hour or two after we get the garments. Laser transfer on white garments has no limitations besides the area of transfer – A4 or A3 maximum. You can use as many colours as you like, and detail, photos, logos or text are all the same.
We also have laser products for full-colour logos and photos on black & non-white t-shirts, ideal for photos for stag/hen or sponsorship memorial garments. Advanced laser transfers utilize specialist white toner laser printers and allow full colour floating artwork created on transparent backgrounds
