If you’re you’re looking to give a simple design a premium feel, flock printing might be just what you’re looking for.
Flock printing provides a velvet like textured feel, that is slightly raised off the surface of the garment, delivering a more premium quality feel to the garment while remaining quite cost effective.
As a result of the process being quite similar to vinyl printing, designs to be flock printed should ideally be simple shapes or lettering, making use of solid block colours.
Complex designs, or designs with lots of colours are not suitable for flock printing.

How Flock Printing Works
The process starts with your artwork being digitally traced into our software, allowing a digital cutter to be able to cut the design out from a sheet. The Flock can then be removed from its backing sheet, and simply heat pressed onto the garment.
Flock is the most appropriate solution for simple design work, and comes available in an array of colours.
This method provides a luxurious raised velvet like texture. This is also an effective means to print onto darker colours.
This process is not appropriate for more complex design work or photographs.
