Lettering (Initials of players or their roles)
Now that you’ve figured out what type of design you have, we will tell you everything you need to know about the different print options available.
First and foremost is Screen Printing, it’s great for vivid colours on a bold canvas. We can use glitter inks and shimmer inks to make your design stand out. It’s great for creating bold unique uniforms for your dance and cheer team.

Next is Embroidery Printing, embroidery is a very versatile print choice that provides the perfect finish to any design – whether you want your design to be vibrant or sleek, bold or discreet.
