Want to learn more about Vinyl Printing?

Vinyl printing is ideal when you need a simple design printed quickly and economically.
Also known as Cad Cut Vinyl printing, the process is very similar to Digital Transfer printing, with the main difference being Vinyl printing is more suitable for designs with 1 or 2 colours, rather than full colour designs.

This process is really popular with sports teams, construction companies, university student’s unions, as well as colleges and schools. The popularity in these areas is a result of being able to have bespoke personalisation across every product, such as names, numbers or job roles.

This option is perfect for those that require fast turnaround times or printing onto non-conventional materials, such as high-visibility workwear, nylon fabrics and hard hats.

Vinyl prints come in an array of colours and are ultra-durable, ensuring a bold lasting print to help your team stand out.

What is vinyl T-shirt printing and how does it work?

The process starts with your artwork being digitally traced into our software, allowing our plotter (a digital cutter) to be able to cut the design out from a sheet of Vinyl. 

We then manually remove any remaining unwanted vinyl from around your design when undertaking a fiddly process called weeding. 

Once the weeding has been completed your design is the only thing that remains on the backing paper. Using a combination of heat and pressure produced by an industrial heat press, we fuse your vinyl design to the garment. 

The backing paper is then pulled away, leaving just your design emblazoned across your T-shirt or other garment.

Vinyl printing is the most appropriate solution for simple designs and comes available in an array of colours. It’s also great for printing onto darker coloured fabrics.

This process is not appropriate for more complex design work or photographs.

What does vinyl printing feel like?

Vinyl printing has a plastic or rubbery feel to it, which is very popular for sportswear like leggings and team shirts as well as for custom personalised coats and softshell jackets. The raised surface and striking finish make it a great choice where your design needs to stand out against the garment fabric.

What is the quality and durability of vinyl printed clothing?

Good quality vinyl printing doesn’t crack or peel. Achieving this quality is very much down to the materials used and the people applying them to the garments.

We use the highest quality vinyl, industrial heat press machinery, and have a team of experts with years of print experience under their belts. This allows us to produce prints that will last the lifetime of your garments.

What is the price of vinyl T-shirt printing?

Unlike screen printing, DTG and embroidery, vinyl printing is a very labour-intensive production method. As a result of this and the meticulous approach we take to quality, our vinyl printing is one of our most expensive print methods.

If ordering in bulk you can expect vinyl printed T-shirts to cost around £9 per T-shirt.

With prices for vinyl printing being a little bit higher and the limitations around it, we generally only recommend this process for small volumes of personalised sportswear or items like waterproof jackets, softshell jackets and coats which due to their fabric composition are well suited to vinyl printing.

Products That Can Be Vinyl Printed

Vinyl printing works best on products made from synthetic materials like polyester. For the best results, we advise printing onto products with at least 70% polyester (or other synthetic fabric).

We can vinyl print onto a wide range of clothing items, however, our most popular products for this process include the following:
