Effective February 01st, 2019, our onsite Decorating & Design Studios will offer one-stop shopping for our clientele. We are excited about entering this new chapter of our company history with the addition of our new Direct to Garment (DTG) Digital Print Studio.
Combined with our existing Embroidery and Graphics Studios mobo can assist you from logo design through product selection, decorating and the finishing.
Whatever your custom needs are, whether it is for your employees or clients, a sports team or a reunion, team mobo is here to help bring your design to life!
Since 2003, mobo has been proud to offer onsite custom embroidery to our clientele. This allows us to produce your logos on the garments you choose with the greatest care and attention to detail.
We offer a vast array of thread colors to custom match the pantone colors in your logo as well as specialty thread such as metallic and fire-retardant options.
Because team mobo embroiders your garments here we can assure that every piece you order is finished with the utmost care and attention. This means snipping threads on the backside by hand with tiny scissors. Here is an example of how we finish a cap vs. one we bought in the airport:
Our embroidery machines are constantly busy working on a variety of orders. Be they orders for large corporations with their uniform or recognition programs, small business entrepreneurs wanting to thank their staff and customers, or sport teams wanting sharp, new images, walk-ins are always still welcome at mobo.
If you have a special project to be done on one or two pieces, please drop in. We are happy to add personalized monograms for you in the font you choose. mobo frequently embroiders bathrobes for hotels and quite often have done pillow cases or towels for personalized wedding gifts.
Whatever your custom embroidery needs are, big or small, call on mobo to help!
Digital Print Studio
For vibrant, detailed multi-colored graphic printing on cotton and cotton blend apparel, there is no better option available than Direct to Garment (DTG).
DTG is a process of shooting water-based ink into the fibres of the garments directly, with all colors being printed at once. This is unlike screen printing which does one color at a time. The water-based inks we use in DTG are eco-friendly and are safe for infants and anyone that might suffer from allergies.
For crisp, vibrant custom T-Shirts, Hoodies, Hats and Bags, call on the team at mobo for efficient and expert service. We are proud to be innovators by being one of the first to offer the latest technology in DTG in our marketplace.
We know it can very confusing for some when we ask for vector art to decorate your goods. We also know that you might not only be missing vector art, but not have any art files at all! Perhaps you have just a sketch of what you envision for your logo or design. We can help bring that vision to reality with the experts in our Graphics Studio. From concept to delivery, we are here to assist you to “Make Your Mark” with promotional goods and branded apparel.
Screen printing is still our go-to method of decorating for large orders of Custom T-Shirts. The process is also cost effective when your graphic art contains one or two colors only. The art is separated by color and then a screen is created for each. The screen is placed over the garment and the ink for the color is pushed through the screen onto the shirt. This process is repeated for every color in the design.
The Heat Transfer method of decorating is done by taking your graphic image and printing it on a transfer material that has a heat-activated adhesive on one side. The high temperature of the heat press activates the adhesive so that the image is stuck onto the garment.
Sublimation is for when you need to print very detailed color graphics on flat material that is then sewn together. For example, custom tablecloths that are used at trade shows are most often sublimated. Custom hockey jerseys are sublimated too, as well as T-Shirts sometimes. To best define it, sublimation is where the entire surface of the garment or material used to make the garment is covered with art. It is most commonly only done on 100% polyester fabrics. The process involves using heat sensitive inks. Under high temperatures the inks turn to gas and bonds with the fabric becoming part of the physical structure of the material.
Debossing is a very popular method of decorating leather goods and apparel. It is achieved by pressing a cut dye into the material’s surface to create an imprint of the design that is depressed into the fabric. Embossing on the other hand creates a raised image on the surface.
Tackle Twill is most popular for sports jerseys as it is less expensive for doing large numbers and letters than in regular embroidery. Here, designs are cut from twill fabric and stuck to the surface of the shirt with adhesive. The edge of the design is then finished with a zig zag stitch to keep it in place.
