The original company was started 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 Leterset 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 screen printing 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 the 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 neck ties. We also produced the Official Supporter Shirts and Ties for the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup. In 2010 we produced close to 240 000 Vuvuzela’s 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 “
