Vinyl is versatile
With no set-up fees and low costs for small quantities, vinyl is versatile. It can be used on most types of apparel such as t-shirts, polos, work shirts, bags, jackets and more. For best results, turn the shirt inside out during the wash and hang to dry. Vinyl printing includes all metallic, velvet flock, glow in the dark and other specialty finishes. Now, let’s dive further into the printing technique itself. The word ‘CAD’ stands for Computer Aided Design and this represents the method in which the design is mapped out and then created using a computer. Once the design is created, it’s then printed out and cut before being transferred onto T-Shirts and other types of clothing. The most common uses for this printing technique is numbers, names and logos which are then printed onto different types of clothing, but as mentioned before, namely sports shirts. CAD Cut vinyl is actually the material which is used to print onto the fabric – the material which is cut with the aid of the computer. CAD Cut vinyl uses a unique vinyl material which is specially cut and then printed onto the clothing using a heat press. Different vinyl colours and different textures can be used to customise T-Shirts and other types of promotional clothing. The most popular vinyl is plain black, block-colour vinyl, but there are various different effects which are also available.
