Main techniques for printing swim caps.
How to print swim caps? The first thing you need to know about is that there are two printing techniques still used today.
- Screen printing, the definition from Wikipediais a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate. Normally, we use screen printing for simple logos.
- Heat transfer printing, the definition from Wikipediais a digital printing method in which material is applied to paper (or some other material) by melting a coating of ribbon so that it stays glued to the material on which the print is applied. It will be used for full printed swim caps.
Advantages from a factory of swim gear.
- Price, getting rid of middle man that means to save some cost. And then you could save communication costs.
- Quality assurance, in addition to our sales staff, we have a strict quality management system, that will make sure to check the quality step by step.
- Options for kinds of swim cap colours, our factory will provide our pantone card for you to select preferred colours of swim cap and logo.
Things to consider when purchasing swim caps from factory.
- Many swim shops allow to print swim cap from 25 pieces, but a factory will give MOQ to 100pcs swim caps. Normally we agree to print 50pcs caps one design, you might think it’s a joke? Is a high starting subscription also an advantage? Different with swim shop, it will cost a factory too much to print less quantity swim caps, like workers, material, machine tear etc.
- You need to confirm whether a designer in factory will provide the proof of swim cap or not? It will save much time and make sure a sample will be closed to your requirement. And then they normally do not charge to this stuff.
- Confirm the delivery time advanced, it is very important for both of us. As a buyer, you need to tell us the lead time before the order placed. As a factory, we will check the production schedule and shipping time. Even if the race is urgent, we have to be prepared in advance!
