You have the design ready. You can mentally picture how it will come out, but you’d like to see a tangible example before you order 500 printed T-Shirts or 1000 printed tote bags, for example. So before investing huge sums of money in large clothing orders that may not correspond with your brand, read the following information to find out more about the offers we currently offer on samples, they may help you gain some peace of mind.

Samples for direct to garment printing:

Direct to garment printing (or DTG) is a relatively new technique and is starting to become more and more popular amongst all clients from all industries. It works especially well on white garments. If you are looking for a specific colour or texture, then we would recommend investing in samples.

Our current offer on samples includes:
1 GD01 in white + 1 GD01 in black + 1 tote bag in black + 1 tote bag in natural = £50.00 + VAT*

Samples for screen printing:

Screen printing is a process which requires setting up screens for each of the different colours that you have in your design. There are set-up costs involved with this technique that can prove costly and time consuming. Due to the time taken we cannot always guarantee the availability for Screen printed samples.

Samples for embroidery:

Embroidery is a long-lasting and very durable technique. Set-up for this technique involves preparing a digital file ready for the embroidery machine, which can incur costs.
