Decoration Methods


Below is a brief description of some of the decoration methods Pleetoox uses to create the eye-catching, brand-boosting presentation both you and your client want:

  • Dye Sublimation: Prints on white polyester substrates only. Dyes are printed on special paper through an ink jet printer. The paper is then heat pressed to the fabric transferring the dyes to the poly fabric creating the image.  Good for colorful designs with moderate detail.

  • Digital Print: Digital printed transfers uses a wafer thin printable material that color is added to through a large format ink jet printer.  After heat setting the logo to the display cloth it is cad cut to shape. More multi color detail is available with digital printing but the overall shape needs to be simple for the cad cutting process.  This is a good solution for small runs of a multi-color logo at a lower cost than dye sublimation.

  • Vinyl Heat Transfer: Wafer thin vinyl material commonly used on sports uniforms, such as football jerseys, that is computer cut and transferred to any standard color poly twill table throw with a high temperature heat press. The maximum logo size is 45”w x 25”h (114.30cm x 63.5cm). Vinyl logo colors are limited to 20 standard colors. Good for images with little or no detail and short/small print runs. 

  • Tackle Twill Applique: Applique logos are computer cut tackle twill material, commonly used on sports uniforms, such as hockey jerseys. The twill is cad cut and heat transferred to the display cloth with a high temperature heat press and then zigzag stitched all around. The tackle twill is permanently adhered and will not peel or fade.  Smaller detail needed in the logo is embroidered.

  • Silk Screen: For larger quantity orders silk-screened graphics are used and can be printed with different screen sizes.  Logos can be printed from 1 to 8 colors up to simulated 4-color process. Graphics can be printed from very small to 60" x 120" in size in one or multiple locations.
