What is Screenprinting?
Screenprinting is an inexpensive method of applying ink on a t-shirt, sweatshirt or any other garment. We can print your design or logo using up to 6 colors. Some examples can be seen in our screenprinted garment gallery.
What is Embroidery?
Embroidery is a design that is actually sewn directly to the garment. It can be lettering or logo, or a combination of both.
What is Tackle Twill?
Tackle Twill is most commonly seen on school letterman jackets. Larger "TWILL" material letters are available in many sizes and styles. They are sewn on, usually with a zig-zag stitch. Larger areas of jacket backs are usually done with tackle twill.
What is Digitizing?
Digitizing is the process of programming an image into a stitch file for embroidery. Any image, design or logo can be downloaded into our digitizing software program and converted into a file that will tell our embroidery machines how to sew the design onto the garment. The sew file tells the embroidery machine what size the logo will be, where to put specific colors and many other technical aspects that make for a clean-cut finished embroidery.
What is an embroidery file?
The Embroidery file is an electronic file format used to direct our embroidery machines. Our software is up-to-date and top of the ine. We can handle specific files and extensions to accomodate all platforms! Examples of a file extension fo embroidering is as follows: .pxf, .emb and .dst
What is a vector?
Vector art is created using vector illustration software programs, such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. These programs use mathematic equations and geometric primitives (points, lines, and shapes) to create art that is clean, camera ready, and can be scaled continuously, without any loss of quality. An example of a vector file is as follows: .ai, .cdr and .eps
What is a raster file?
In computer graphics, a raster graphics or bitmap image is a dot matrix data structure that represents a generally rectangular grid of pixels (points of color), viewable via a monitor, paper, or other display medium. Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats.
