Our workwear company has been doing single colour vinyl prints and embroidery for a few years now. We are getting an ever increasing need for full colour logos on the back of the likes of High-Vis coats.

We would like to get the right machinery that would enable us to produce these cost effectively for runs between 4-100 and to a reasonable quality.

I am at a little bit of a loss at present though as there appears to be four options:

1. DTG Printer such as the Resolute

2. Cut and Print machine such as the Roland Versacamm

3. Screen print setup

4. Print to transfers on printer (do these then get cut with something like our Roland CAMM1?)

Clearly the options on this vary massively in price, functionality, speed and simplicity. As such I would just appreciate a steer as to where to start. We would also need any software required to do the work at the time of purchase.

It's great to hear that your workwear company has been doing single colour vinyl prints and embroidery successfully for a few years. As you're now receiving an increasing demand for full-colour logos on High-Vis coats, it's important to find the right machinery that can produce these cost-effectively and to a reasonable quality.

You've outlined four different options, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Here's a brief overview of each option:

DTG Printer - This type of printer is ideal for printing full-color designs directly onto garments, including High-Vis coats. It's a cost-effective solution for short runs of up to 100 units and produces high-quality prints with sharp details and vibrant colors.

Cut and Print Machine - This type of machine is a good option if you need to produce full-color designs on vinyl or other transfer materials. It combines the ability to print and cut in a single machine, making it a convenient and efficient option.

Screen Print Setup - This is a traditional printing method that involves creating a stencil or mesh screen for each color in the design. It's a more complex and time-consuming process, but it's ideal for producing high-quality prints on a larger scale.

Print to Transfers on Printer - This method involves printing the design onto transfer paper and then cutting it out using a separate machine, such as a Roland CAMM1. This is a good option for producing full-color designs in small quantities.
