USING OUR UNIQUE proprietary printing processes, you're free to design exactly the cloth bag you want. From a single color logo to a full color photo of your store - we can print it on your bag. Plus you order only what you need. There are NO minimum order quantities or 'runs' - order just one if you like.
CHOOSE FROM THREE different digital processes. We've developed three different processes to print on a cloth bags - so you can select the best one for your needs:

1. High-Speed Digital Transfer - The image is printed on a specially developed substrate and quickly transfered to the bag under high heat and pressure (typically 450°F @ 100+psi for < 2 seconds). This bonds the image directly to the cloth fibers leaving a clean copy on the bag. Because of the high heat and pressure, this process may leave a slight residue on the bag - not normally noticable on natural cotton. The High-Speed Digital Transfer process is the most cost-effective of the three processes.

2. Digital Transfer II - Again the image is printed on a substrate - this time a different formulation. The transfer is done at a lower temperature and pressure for a longer time. The image bonds to the cloth but without noticable residue. This more complex process leaves a very clean, slightly brighter image. The Transfer II process is most suitable for white or bleached cotton fabrics and is a little more expensive than the high speed process,

3. Direct Digital - Unlike 1 & 2 above, this process prints directly on the cloth fabric - no special substrates or transfers. It is somewhat more difficult because the fabric cannot move or stretch during the printing process. It can only be applied to the cloth before the bags are manufactured - a pre-production process. However, Direct Digital printing allows the image to extend around the entire bag - even on the edges. This process is most suitable for specialty bags - odd shapes and sizes - and very small bags.
