UNVEILING THE MAGIC: YOUR GUIDE TO PRINT METHODS FOR BRANDED MERCH

Branded merchandise isn’t just a marketing tool—it’s a conversation starter, a brand ambassador, and a way to sprinkle your brand’s personality wherever it goes. Whether you’re gearing up for an event, thanking your loyal customers, or simply want to elevate your brand, customising top-notch branded merchandise is the way to go. Did you know? Studies have found that a whopping 85% of people are more likely to do business with a company after receiving a promotional product from them. Talk about leaving a lasting impression!

But with a smorgasbord of print methods out there, finding the perfect fit for your branded merch can feel like navigating a labyrinth. Fear not, we’re here to hold your hand through the maze and help you land on the print method that’s as awesome as your brand personality.

1. Laser Engraving

Laser engraving isn’t just for the tech-savvy—it’s the secret sauce behind those sleek, detailed designs that pop on metal, wood, or plastic surfaces. This method is perfect for high-end giveaways such as personalised metal pens or engraved keychains. With laser printing, your brand will scream sophistication.

2. Screen Printing

Get ready to turn heads with screen printing—the go-to method for jazzing up apparel like t-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags. It’s like painting a masterpiece, but on fabric. So whether you’re launching a new product or just want to spice up your company event, screen-printed branded apparel is the way to go!

3. Pad Printing

Got oddly shaped items like pens, USB drives, or stress balls that need a little pizzazz? Enter pad printing, the superhero of irregular surfaces. With its knack for printing on curved or wonky shapes, pad printing ensures your promotional products look sharp and on point.

4. Embossing

Feeling fancy? Embossing is here to add that extra oomph to your branded merchandise. Think raised designs on paper or leather that scream luxury. With embossing, your branded notebooks and leather wallets will have people swooning over their tactile elegance.

5. Debossing

For those who prefer subtle sophistication, debossing is the way to go. It’s like giving your products a secret handshake—subtle but oh-so-sophisticated. Picture sleek leather notebooks or passport holders that exude understated elegance.

6. Embroidery

Who said branded apparel has to be boring? Embroidery takes things up a notch with its textured, durable designs. From snazzy polo shirts to caps that scream style, embroidered apparel is the cherry on top of your brand’s fashion game.

7. Heat Transfer

Heat transfer is the Picasso of print methods, allowing for intricate, full-color designs that pop on everything from mugs to mouse pads. It’s like giving your branded merchandise a front-row seat at a color explosion.

8. Digital Printing

Looking for versatility and quick turnaround times? Digital printing has got your back. Whether it’s stickers, posters, or banners, digital printing delivers high-quality, full-colour prints that are sure to turn heads without breaking the bank. Consider this a great money saving hack.

9. Dye Sublimation

Want prints that are as vibrant as your brand personality? Dye sublimation is the answer. From sports jerseys to phone cases, dye sublimation delivers long-lasting prints that won’t fade away.

10. Foil Stamping

For those who want to add a touch of glitz and glam, foil stamping is where it’s at. It’s like sprinkling a bit of stardust on your branded merchandise, making everything from gift boxes to business cards shine brighter than the North Star.

Check out these premium-grade chopsticks we did for Dan Murphy’s. The custom-branded packaging, with a striking foil finish for Dan Murphy’s logo added a sprinkle of elegance to the product.

When it comes to branding merchandise, the print method you choose is your secret weapon for turning heads and standing out. Whether you’re going for the precision of laser printing or the vibrant hues of digital printing, each method brings its own flavour to the table. So go ahead, choose customised merch that effectively promotes your brand and leaves a lasting impression on your audience.
