In The Beginning . . .
The original company was Established 40 years ago in End Street, using very basic equipment. In those days we used screens with frames that were made out of wood. With no computers, all artwork had to be done by hand using Letraset and cutting out the designs on Rubylith Film. In time we decided to specialise in Sublimation printing and accumulated the necessary equipment, which resulted in us using all the latest technology available.
The company is made up of 2 divisions, namely Screen Printing and Digital Printing. In the Screen Printing section, we are pleased to have a rotary screenprinting machine capable of top quality printing at a speed of 3000 sheets an hour.
This machine enables us to print exceptionally large runs, and with the speed. We can produce a job in a very short time. We are therefore able to produce at a much lower cost.
This machine was purchased in 1994 in time for the 1995 Rugby World Cup, where we managed to print 30 000 neckties. We also produced the Official Supporter Shirts and Ties for the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup. In 2010 we produced close to 240 000 Vuvuzelas for the Fifa World Cup.
With the introduction of Digital Printing, we are able to produce smaller quantities. Digital Printing is slower than conventional printing, it has the advantage of printing all the colours at the same time in photographic quality, “full-colour print “
Established in 1988, Westside Textile Printers has enjoyed steady growth and is today one of the leading sublimation textile printing companies in the country.
The very latest technology is used, resulting in top quality products, swift delivery and satisfied clients.
We are situated in the New Centre with easy access from the M2, our factory is located at 36 Roper Street, New Centre (Selby), Johannesburg, between Rosettenville Road & Eloff Street Ext.
All orders are treated with the utmost confidentiality and our loyalty to our clients has been proven over the years.
