Furthermore, our advance machinery allows us to embroider numerous garments at once, giving ADM the flexibility and capacity to make big orders easy for our team of specialists to handle.

Vinyl printing is excellent for personalised names and nicknames on your leavers hoodies.

Once done a heat press machine is used by staff at ADM  to seal each piece of vinyl onto the hoodie

We offer an affordable digital printing option. Your digital print is transferred to your personalised leavers hoodies using heat. Furthermore, the advance print machinery cuts your branding or image from a section of vinyl, then the ADM team will remove the leftover vinyl. Finally, our expert team will then place your logo on the hoodie  and our print machinery completes the print based on the heat and pressure applied.

Screen printing is the process of transferring a stencilled design onto the hoodie of choice using ink, a mesh screen, and a squeegee. ADM have several template designs for the logo that is normally printed on back of leavers hoodies. The template chosen is then printed on the back of the hoodies using the screen printing method and the expertise of staff at ADM.
