Design Information

Can you design my artwork for me?

We do not offer a design service however we are sometimes able to make minor amendments or changes for you to previously created artwork.

Artwork Guidelines

Please see our dedicated Artwork Guidelines page

Are there any setup costs?

We require your artwork to be a suitable quality in order for us to print or embroider your items.

For orders over £250 inc VAT there is no charge for setting up 1 logo for embroidery or printing. There will be additional charges for multiple embroidery logos and for any unsuitable printing artwork.

For embroidery orders less than £250 inc VAT, there is a setup cost of £20 inc vat. This covers the time and expense of converting the file to an embroidery stitch format and then running a sample on our machines.

Remember, once you have paid a setup charge for your embroidery or print design, you will not be charged this fee again on subsequent orders.

What does GSM mean?

GSM stands for Grams per Square Meter and is used to measure the thickness of the garment material

The higher the GSM number, the thicker the fabric.

A GSM rating can be found in nearly all our product descriptions. For t shirts for example, a lightweight fabric would be around 160gsm and a heavyweight around 200gsm.

Can you embroider my own garments?

Superlogo Ltd only print and embroider onto items that we supply. Our range has been manufactured specifically for the printing and embroidery industry.

In exceptional circumstances, and only if you have a significant number of the same items, then we may consider branding your items.

Superlogo Ltd will not be held responsible for the items supplied should something happen to them during the printing or embroidery process. Please contact us if you wish to discuss this further.

What printing methods do you offer?

We offer a wide range of print methods, and our designers and experienced print team will decide which method is most suitable for your order based on your design and the garments you choose.

Direct to Film (DTF) Printing

  • Direct to Film (DTF) is a digital print process of printing directly on to a transparent film carrier which is fed through a printer. The print is then covered in a fine TPU glue powder and cured under strict time and temperature settings. It is then applied to the final product using an industrial heat press under a strict time and pressure setting.
  • Suitable for printing multi coloured designs and photos
  • Great for small to medium quantities
  • Creates a bright sharp finish

Full colour transfer printing

  • Full colour transfer printing involves printing a coloured design onto a white vinyl and cuts around the design, which is then heat pressed on to the garment.
  • Suitable for printing multi coloured designs and photos
  • Great for small to medium quantities
  • Creates a bright sharp finish

Vinyl printing

  • Vinyl transfer printing works by a machine which cuts out a design onto a single-colour sheet of vinyl. The vinyl design is then heat sealed on to the garment using a heat press. This creates a vibrant, bold finish that will really stand out.
  • Perfect for producing single colour text like individual names, simple logos and numbers
  • Great for small to medium quantities
  • Creates a sharp clean finish

Screen printing

  • Screen printing is one of the most traditional methods of printing and is great for large orders of over 50 pieces. It involves the application of colour with ink directly through a mesh screen onto the garment.
  • Great for printing large, detailed artwork
  • Creates a soft smooth finish
  • Great for larger quantities over 50 pieces
  • Achieves long-lasting, durable results
