There are many reasons why custom clothing is so popular. There is great potential for custom clothes to help you develop personal branding, your own unique style or help get a step up with the commercial marketing benefits.
Custom Clothing is Immediately Recognisable
With your unique custom design, you will stand out from the crowd. Whether you want to give your own personal wardrobe that standout flare or help develop brand identity and recognition. Custom clothing is the perfect method for creative identity expression.
Customise with your logo
For any business regardless of size, a logo is a strong first impression. When a logo is worn on any custom clothing item you can help foster brand loyalty and demonstrate that your brand is memorable and worthy of support.
Custom Clothing helps you Connect with Others Custom Clothing helps you Connect with Others
Your custom design creates meaning. Whether your design is just for you, for a team trip, a gift for a friend, to promote your small business or a corporate event promotional gift. Your custom clothes can help spark conversations and interest from others when worn. Friends and family become familiar with your designs and therefore they are more likely to ask questions or show interest in whatever your design communicates. You can share any story, memory or brand when creating your custom clothes with a range of colours and vast design options. Help create connections and express yourself with a wardrobe of quality custom clothing pieces.
In larger orders, Custom Clothes help Create Group Consistency
When team members are dressed in the same clothing or are all wearing their own custom piece with a consistent logo or design then they feel and look as if they are truly a team. This is beneficial if you are looking to create custom clothes for larger groups for example a sports team, a work team, a volunteer group or school year groups. Making custom clothing for a group not only fosters teamwork but motivates a group to act as one cohesive unit moving forward.
Custom Clothing Pieces are Considered Professional
For brands, custom apparel is a must for promoting company culture. For individuals, custom clothes help add that extra touch of care to their style. For groups working together in formal or informal settings, a custom clothing piece for the occasion helps lift any event to the next level. For example, if you have a work party coming up, why not create custom pieces for each employee to take it to that next level?

Screen printing is the super efficient process of layering colours of a design on top of each other to create a full image. It's an ideal solution for bulk orders, unique designs and replications that require special inks or colour matching.
PrintLocker uses the latest technology in direct to garment printing. Our printers use a combination of white and CMYK inks that are laid onto the shirt to create the design. Once the print has finished, the shirt is cured using heat to prevent the design from washing out. Digital printing is perfect for smaller quantities, higher detail, and quick turnaround times.
Embroidery is an age-old process of weaving a design onto fabric using a thread and needle. Today, instead of someone actually sewing a design by hand, a digital file is created that tells a machine how and where to put each stitch. Embroidery works best with simple, low colour count logos or artwork. Photographs and artwork with fine detail or small lettering usually can not be emboirdered. We'll be sure to contact you if this is the case and recommened ways we can alter your design or suggest alternative printing methods.
Dye sublimation is this cool process where an image is printed onto heat transfer paper then applied to a specially coated ceramic, metal or polyester fabric via heat transfer. Sublimation ink has this unique ability to convert from a solid to a gas using a heat press which is controlled by time and pressure. The high temperature from a heat transfer press opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter the substrate. When the temperature cools, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state leavng the impression that was first printed onto the heat transfer paper.
Vinyl transfer is a process where vinyl is fed through a plotter after type or a design has been created in a design program such as Adobe Illustrator. The design is then cut and weeded out to reveal the design then applied to the garment using a heat press.
Digital transfer involves a solvent ink printer and a heat press. The substrate is fed through the printer and the design has a special contour cut line added so the printer software can recognise the cut shape. Once printed this is weeded and applied to the garment using a heat press.
