Costing: To provide proper costing a finished sample is required from the brand which allows us to determine fabric costs, construction details and embellishments (e.g. embroidery/screen print/sublimation and tag labels, etc.).
Production: Once a pre production samples are approved production can begin. Production lead times differ based on the complexity of the order and will be provided on a case by case basis.
LMI offers screen printing which is the process of plastisol inks through a screen. We screen print onto apparel such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, jackets, and caps containing cotton, polyester or cotton/polyester blended fabric.
Screen printed inks are often used for most printing found in large retail stores and offer the look, feel and durability you expect. Screen printing can be single or multi-color. We also offer metallic colors and foil prints. Choose from ink formulas, standard or glitter. Send us your designs or we have in-house designers that can put your idea to reality.
Cut and Sew
Offering flexible MOQs, quick turn times, and high visibility for our customers throughout the process, our cut and sew factories regularly handle short-run and large-scale manufacturing and have experience maintaining the highest quality standards.
We specialize in Direct-to-Garment or custom digital T-shirt printing to allow you to easily personalize your apparel with a design that’s uniquely your own. Direct-to-Garment Printing uses a high-tech inkjet printer to print digital designs and images directly onto a garment. The result? A full-color, high-resolution design that lasts longer.
LMI offers High quality custom embroidery using state of the art embroidery machines. We have a variety of colors to choose from. We stock a large selection of thread colors and we also match pantone colors. We will take your logo or artwork and program it into an embroidery computer file, using the latest software. LMI will digitize your files as needed.
During sublimation the ink becomes a gas, absorbing into the fibers, becoming part of the fabric. This is totally different from screen printing, where the ink is deposited on the surface of the fabric, suffocating the technical fabric’s characteristic ability to breath. Sublimation, on the other hand, allows the garment to maintain its technical characteristics, continuing to breath and wick moisture away from the body. The fabric, which absorbs the dye completely, remains soft. Your design is permanently infused into the fiber of the fabric and does not crack, peel, or wear off.
