Laser Etch and Tonal Etch


The Tonal Etch technique gives a dimensional feel to your garment by using two (light and dark) contrasting tones. Our Single Tone Etch designs provide a more subtle tonal look or background. Choose stand-alone designs from our stock embroidery templates for Left Chest, Full-Size or even Jumbo Size.

Also consider combining our Etch technique with other techniques for a cool Combined Techniques look. For instance, add Laser Etch to your Appliqué for an additional $2.00! Or add a Laser Etch behind a Traditional Appliqué, Reverse Laser Appliqué or Jersey Appliqué for an additional $2.00!

Etching is made directly on the surface of the garment so certain materials and garments are better suited for Laser Etch techniques. Fabric must be 100% polyester and, because Etch effects may vary with garment color, we do not recommend this technique on Black, White or dark colors. You’ll get the best results from mid-tone colors.

Dye Sublimation


Dye-sublimation printing is a digital printing technology using full color artwork that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Also referred to as digital sublimation, the process is commonly used for decorating apparel, signs and banners, as well as novelty items such as cell phone covers, plaques, coffee mugs, and other items with sublimation-friendly surfaces. The process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase.

In sublimation printing, unique sublimation dyes are transferred to sheets of "transfer" paper via liquid gel ink through a piezoelectric print head. The ink is deposited on these high-release inkjet papers, which are used for the next step of the sublimation printing process. After the digital design is printed onto sublimation transfer sheets, it is placed on a heat press along with the substrate to be sublimated.


Discharge Printing


This process can be used on its own to achieve a nice, natural imprint. Discharge printing is the process where we print a chemical that removes the die from the garment, returning it to its original cotton color. More commonly, discharge printing is used in order to print water-based inks on dark garments. When combined with water-based inks, you can achieve a soft hand with a multi-color print on most dark garments.
