Vinyl printing, or CAD (Computer Aided Design) Cut Vinyl printing as it’s also known, is very similar to transfer printing, except it’s only suitable for designs which consist of one or two colours. It’s a method of heat transferring onto T-shirts and clothing.

It is most commonly used on sports T-Shirts for printing the numbers, names, and logos onto them. CAD-Cut vinyl is actually the material that’s used to print onto the fabric, and it is cut with the aid of a computer. The process involves cutting out your designs, logos, shapes, names or numbers from a special vinyl material. The designs are cut using industrial cutting machines or plotters.

It enables one or two colour designs and logos to be printed very quickly and is a great option for names and numbers on promotional clothing and printed sports clothing. 

Cad Cut Vinyl printing is ideal for low-quantity T-Shirt runs

Workwear, sports clothing (such as football and rugby tops) where you need names and numbers.

CAD-Cut vinyl is ideal for garment printing of 1-3 colours of smaller quantities, for example, a football team’s strip. It’s also perfect if you’re looking to create simple T-Shirts and vests as well as promotional clothing, one-off T-Shirts and stag and hen do tops.

– Can be used on virtually all types of products/colours

Printed garments are more sensitive and need extra attention when it comes to washing. To preserve the print and the garment, it is recommended that you wash it inside out on a cold wash.  Do not use a tumble-dryer and do not iron over the print. Please refer to our Wash & Care Guide here.
