Sail Cloth Thermal Prints

Sail Cloth Customers Take Note!

We did testing with our T-shirt Thermal Transfer Press and discovered that relatively inexpensive transfer vinyl binds excellently to recycled sailcloth. This is good news: we can make simple decals and logos in small runs more economically than screen printing! Thermal transfer vinyl comes in a HUGE variety of colors, some of which we can digitally print images on.

Save on Materials (be flexible)!

Just like most things many of our substrates have “name” brands and “generic” brands, which often have similar or identical properties, but not similar or identical prices. If name brands are not a requirement on your project, let us know, and we might be able to recommend a suitable alternative at a considerable savings, without sacrificing performance and quality.

Prototyping, is it for You?

Screen printing is the best method for high quality, durable products. It is the cleanest, most consistent way to accurately lay down thick rich colors. However, with multiple colors and short runs of low quantities can be labor intensive. 

Likewise, die-cutting is top choice for clean and precisely cut products, but tooling for short runs with complex cuts can be uneconomical. 

GOOD NEWS! Gloucester Graphics has refined our prototyping process to help you save on low runs of products, especially for prototypes with lower tolerance requirements.

We can digitally print, laminate and cut labels and decals, without new tooling. Even with products that aren't kiss cut, like graphic overlays, we can digitally print, laminate and laser cut them to your prototype specs.

Next time your project requires a short run let us know if you'd consider protyping.

Save on tooling (keep it simple)!

Tooling costs can add $50-200 (or more) to an order depending on the complexity of the part.

We can help you save!

Reuse! We have a database of over 4,000 dies that we will use for free whenever we can! Let us know if your sizing is flexible.

Simplify if possible. The complexity of the cut adds cost! Standardize custom parts to use the same dies.

Not all parts are created equally, some parts don't need to be cut within thousandths of an inch. If you don't need precision, we may be able to power cut your parts (and even round the corners) for free.
