The Custom Design Process

We offer a range of apparel options in countless styles, colors, and printing techniques to create custom clothing you’ll love. Our team of artists offers:
Screen printing from Match Play Ink in Rochester, NY

Screen Printing

Screen printing is a form of garment printing in which plastisol-based inks are pressed through a screen onto a garment, leaving a layer of ink on top of the fabric. Screen printing is the most established and widely-used form of garment printing available.

Artwork Requirements

  • All artwork submissions for screen printing must be .eps, .ai, or .pdf files.
  • All graphics must be fully vectorized.
  • All text must be outlined.
  • If artwork does not fulfill the above requirements, there will be a tracing fee added to your order.

Embroidery

Embroidery is an excellent option for a long-lasting, professional look and feel. Unlike screen printing, embroidery machines have different colors on spindles, and the machine takes turns stitching each color as it is programmed to do. Another key difference is that cost is affected by how high your stitch count is—not by how many colors there are in your design.

Digitizing Requirements

  • There is a one time $50 Digitizing fee to create an embroidery (.dst) file from your design.
  • We keep this on file so that the next time you embroider, it will be ready to go.
  • If you already have a compatible embroidery file, then our digitizing fee is waived.

Heat press from Match Play Ink in Rochester, NY

Heat Press

A heat press is typically used to apply numbers and names to the backs of jerseys, or for low quantity orders. The process starts with a vector design that is converted to outlines. Then, we send the design to the vinyl cutter, where it is cut out of a solid sheet of vinyl.

This process is ideal for orders with many different designs because the setup is not as involved or time-consuming as screen printing.

Cut File Requirements

  • Must be a vector.
  • Must be converted to outlines.
  • Two-color maximum.
