Promote your brand in style
Corporate branding refers to the practice of promoting the brand name of a corporate entity, as opposed to specific products or services. The activities and thinking that go into corporate branding are different from product and service branding because the scope of a corporate brand is typically much broader.
Embroidery is when a logo is reproduced by stitching threads directly into fabric. The stitching process is fully automatic and performed by computerised embroidery machines. To design a logo in stitching file is called digitising.
All products are manually “hooped” and loaded onto the embroidery machine.
Embroidery can be done on about any type of custom apparel & accessories that can be pierced with a needle and thread.
The logo you want to embroider can be placed anywhere on the product depending on the product you are branding. Corporate logos are mostly placed on the left chest pocket position. On golfers, the sleeves can also be embroidered. On headwear, the option for the embroidery is either front /back centre or left/right-hand side.
You can also embroider on more than one position on a product
Embroidery can be used to brand the following items: Golfers, Shirts, Blouses, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Dresses, Bodywarmers, Jackets, Caps, Visors, Hats, Conti-suit tops, Jerseys, Shorts, Backpacks, Linen bags etc.

The pad printing process is where an inked image is transferred with a photo-etched plate to a thick soft silicone pad.
The pad is then pressed against the item. Ink coverage is good. One colour is done at a time. Registration between colour is good enough to do up to four colours.
The pad printing method is mostly used for the branding of corporate gifts. Pens, rulers, Usb’s, golf balls, pencils etc. are branded with the pad printing method.
UV Printing is a form of digital printing. Ink is cured with ultra-violet lights as the product is printed. UV Printing cured ink is weather resistant. The UV Printing process is environmentally friendly. The dots of wet ink do not spread out once printed as the UV light cure the ink immediately. The result is much finer detail.
UV printing can last for 2 years without fading, yellowing or cracking. Printing on both sides of a transparent material is possible with UV Printing.
Full colour and white printing can be done as well as personalising.
Materials like Acrylic, Aluminium, Foam board, Corrugated plastic, Leather, ABS, Correx, Koshin, Ceramic, Wood & Glass can be UV printed with success.
