Screen Printing

Screen printing provides a cost effective answer to large quantities of decoration.  It is also ideal if you wish to decorate a large area such as the front on a t-shirt.  Screen printing is most effective on T-shirts but we can also print on: Polos, Hoodies, Notebooks, Umbrellas.

Here at Doves we have 6 fully automatic printing machines which gives us the capacity to print over 100,000 garments a week.  Over the years we have collected a wide range of special effect inks which give a screen printed design that extra edge. Doves can provide the following effects:

Metallic, Glitter, Puff, Discharge, Phosphorescent (glow in the dark), Thermo chromatic (colour changes) printing.

Embroidery

Embroidery offers an excellent solution to decorating garments which cannot be screen printed such as jackets and fleeces.  Embroidery also offers a more durable solution to personalising garments. With over 100 embroidery heads at Doves, no job is either too big or too small.  Our state of the art machines can embroider up to 15 garments at once, while smaller personalisation can be carried out on our collection of single head machines.  Our machines can embroider up to 15 colours, enabling us to cope with complex, colourful designs. We also use a range of threads which clients can select from or match pantones to, these include Madeira, Isacord and Sulky.

We can embroider on:

  • Polos & Tshirts

Sublimation

Sublimation uses traditional printing machinery in the most non traditional ways. It creates a marriage of image and textile that allows fashion designers to explore new territory.

Rather than weaving, embroidering, or screen printing a design, sublimation integrates ink pigment directly into fabric achieving colorfast, vibrant results without compromising the drape and texture of the chosen garment or canvas. The sublimation process begins by printing a color accurate design on paper using sublimation inks. The inks vaporize when heated and applied to material, creating a precise replica of the design onto that material.

This process produces unique, fashion-­forward looks that are popular with a wide range of consumers.Sublimation provides designers with an avenue for their products to be customized in an easy and innovative way.

Sublimation not only pushes the limits of design,but it also makes a lasting impression as sublimated prints never fade or chip off. Sublimation printing offers a fast turn-­around time and in the fashion industry -­ time to market is key to staying ahead of the trends and sublimation allows you to get your product to retailers promptly.
