What types of imprinting are available?

Your logo or slogan can be imprinted onto gear using various techniques that showcase your brand differently. Here are common imprinting techniques:

Screen printing

This method uses ink to transfer your logo or message onto the fabric of clothing. Itís commonly used on clothing and is capable of reproducing a vast array of colors and detail.


This form uses thread to stitch logos or letters directly into the fabric of clothing and accessories. The thread colors are nearly endless, making it easy to match with a brand and logo.

Pad printing

This technique enables two-dimensional images to be printed onto three-dimensional objects using a silicone pad. Itís perfect for printing on curved or oddly shaped items like hard hats.

Heat transfer

This method uses heat and pressure to transfer a pre-printed image from a single wax sheet or transfer paper to an objectís fabric. Also called thermal printing and thermal-transfer printing, itís perfect for one-color or full-color designs.

What does it cost?

Logo setup charges start at $40 per color per location. In addition to the setup fee, there is a cost associated with each imprint, each color and each location on a single garment. Generally, imprint fees start at $3 per imprint and increase from there. Cost per imprint is dependent on the type of garment, number of logos, multiple locations or multiple colors.

There are additional specialty imprints such as reflective ink, printing on rainwear, hard hats and more. These prices are quoted per job.

How long does it take?

From the time that the artwork is approved a usual lead time is 2-3 weeks. Rush orders can sometimes be accommodated for an additional charge. We can give you a better idea of lead time once we know the scope of the imprinting job.

For the quickest turn around logos submitted in Vector files are best (.eps,.ai). If artwork is low resolution or needs to be recreated this will add additional time and cost to the production process.
