These items are popular in a variety of industries including sports, fashion, events, promotions, education, and more.
The cost of heat pressing a garment will depend on several factors, including the size of the design, the type of garment, and the complexity of the design. On average, heat pressing a simple design on a t-shirt can cost anywhere from £6 to £20 depending on the number of presses. While more complex designs or multiple designs on multiple garments can cost significantly more.
Compared to embroidery, heat pressing can often be less expensive for simple designs on smaller quantities of garments. Embroidery typically involves creating a digital stitch file for each design, which can add time and cost to the process, especially for complex designs. However, for larger quantities of garments or more complex designs, embroidery can become more cost-effective. This is due to the ability to produce multiple items in a single production run.
It’s important to consider both cost and quality when deciding between heat pressing and embroidery. While heat pressing can provide a quick and cost-effective solution for simple designs, embroidery often provides a higher-quality result. This can last longer, making it a better option for more intricate designs or for items that will be worn and washed frequently.
