Give It A Whirl- With Custom Threadz

This month, we ventured into the world of transfer branding and embroidery with Mala and the team at Custom Threadz

GIAW custom threadz web3We took along our fabulous pink Hi-Vis vests so that we could have a go at transferring our logo on to the front and back. Under the supervision of Karla and Mala, we were taught how to ‘weed’ which is the process of peeling away the excess areas around a vinyl cut transfer. This is not as easy as it may sound!

After measuring up to ensure our logo would be straight and centred, the real fun began when it came time to use the 150°C heat press to transfer our logo on to each vest.

We were lucky to also receive an embroidery lesson from Custom Threadz’ resident embroidery wizard, Nilesh, who has been embroidering for the past 20 years and makes the whole process look effortless!

It was a lot of fun to experience this process first hand and discover how much effort, knowledge and skill are required in this line of work.
