Different Printing Technology for Different Applications

Don’t Be Fooled into Believing One Process will do Everything!

Here are the various processes used by Graphic Impact.  After reviewing your next project we can suggest the best way to proceed.

“GREEN” Direct to Garment Digital Printing System

Digital printing on either light or dark fabrics.  Directly accepts photoshop files, jpegs and the like without the need for color separation.  Photographic vivid colors!  As with all of Graphic Impact’s processes any number of shirts may be ordered (each one unique when required) and there is no set-up charge.  Delivery is usually 1-2 business days.

Direct to Garment UV Printer

Polyester printing is one of the most challenging tasks in apparel.  Graphic Impact has a specialized digital printer used exclusively for polyester products.  It uses highly durable UV inks with a polymer additive to prevent cracking.  Great photographic quality printing on both light and dark colored shirts with white ink capability.

Cut Vinyl Lettering and Graphics Transfer Printing

Heat transfer printing is the process of applying heat-applied materials to various items (i.e., substrates). Heat-applied materials contain a heat-sensitive adhesive on one side; when heat is applied to the material, the material adheres to the substrate to which it is being applied. The end result is a decorated garment.

Screen Printing

Screen Printing is normally used only for high volume orders with one design and one to two colors.  Color separations are usually required.  There is an extra charge for this service.

Heat Transfer Printing

Heat Transfer Printing allows us to cut a variety of materials using a high performance vinyl cutter and then, by applying heat, to transfer the graphic, lettering or symbols onto T-shirts.  Examples includes sparkle material, reflective material, and fluorescent material.
