Embroidery is one of the most versatile decoration styles. Whether you are looking for a left chest name or a bold design on a cape, this technique is perfect to show off your team pride.

Appliqué is the process of utilizing fabric pieces, vinyl, sequins, and embroidery to create a large, dimensional design that can cut down on stitch count, saving you money in the long run. This technique is not just for large areas, such as full-backs, but also for left-chest designs.

We can customize your design to fit your specific needs, including a combination of materials such as felts, tackle twill, metallics, and print options for unique designs that will wow fans!

Screen Printing

Screen printing works well for vibrant designs or designs on dark-colored apparel. The screen print process involves forcing ink through prepared screens of a fine silk mesh to create your design. This means only one color can be applied at a time to the garment, so the number of colors is limited. Screen printing is generally used for quantities of 24 or more due to the setup required. This style is not ideal for small or intricate designs.

Digital Print

Digital printing is a dye-sublimation process that uses the latest technology to ensure fantastic color saturation and sharp images. This cutting-edge process locks the color into the garment’s fibers, making them machine washable. Band Shoppe offers digitally printed uniforms, flags, banners, fabrics, and team wear options. There are no minimums or setup fees for digital printing.

Vinyl & Heat Transfers

Vinyl & Heat Transfers use high-performance technology to create contour-cut designs applied to garments using a heat press. The heat-applied materials contain a heat-sensitive adhesive on one side so that they can adhere to the garment when someone applies heat. Manufacturers typically use this technique to apply team names and numbers to athletic uniforms. Vinyl and heat transfers are available in several options, including classic vinyl, nylon, stretch, flocked, metallics, glitter, and more!
