The polo shirt was designed in the 1920s, and was originally worn by English polo players as sports clothing. During the 1930s, French fashion brand Lacoste also made it a popular clothing item for tennis, complying with the clothing rules at the time. The fitted sports cut with accentuated collar and button tab was a perfect mix of the classic T-shirt and a short-sleeved men’s shirt. And the polo shirt continues to remain popular to this day. It has gone from being a pure sports shirt to a sporty, casual top worn by men and women both in the office and recreationally.

These are the printing processes for your personalised polo-shirts
When ordering your polo-shirts you have the choice between digital printing, screen printing, transfer printing or embroidery - you decide for yourself!
With digital printing, relatively large areas can be printed on textiles. In this process without printing form, motifs are printed directly onto the textiles using an inkjet printer. The process makes individual prints possible even for single pieces. Furthermore, many colours and colour gradients can be displayed, since the printing technique is based on the so-called subtractive colour mixing of CMYK.
To ensure we can print your polo shirts, and the ink sticks, these are first treated with an “Odourless Fixation Agent”. This spray must then be dried in two 6.5-minute sessions at 160°C. No further coating is applied after printing. The inks themselves are not only environmentally friendly, but also feel nice thanks to the “Softtouch” feature. We can additionally print in white. And there are no screen-making costs, as is often the case with other printing processes. Another advantage of our textile printing inks is the fact that you can easily wash the printed polo shirts at 40°C.
With this process, motifs and fonts are printed in CMYK on a backing paper and then transferred to the fabric with a transfer press. In transfer printing, flat colours as well as the finest colour gradients, for example in photos, can be brilliantly represented. By printing on white transfer film, colours are reproduced perfectly, as the background does not shine through. Furthermore, transfer printing is characterized by high contour sharpness and coverage. A further advantage is undoubtedly the independence of fabric and colour, which is achieved by transfer printing. Regardless of which textiles are printed, the appearance of the print is identical on every fabric.
Screen printing is a real all-rounder among the printing processes. Here the printing ink is printed through a finely woven fabric onto the corresponding textile using a rubber squeegee. The areas that should not be coloured in the final printed image are made colour-impermeable by means of a stencil at the corresponding mesh opening. The direct transfer to the fabric makes the haptics very neutral and, in contrast to alternative printing processes, feels less gummed. This ensures a high wearing comfort which does not affect the fabric feel even after repeated washing and ironing. The screen printing process, which is characterised by a long durability and resistance, produces rich colours with high covering power even on dark textiles. Especially for long runs, this process achieves top printing at comparatively low costs. In addition to printing with conventional inks, so-called spot colors can of course also be selected. For example, metallic colours such as gold, silver and bronze are considered exclusive spot colours with a particularly high recognition value. Metallic colors are not created in CMYK, but are pure Pantone colors. You should use the following Pantone colors to display these elements: Pantone 871 C (gold), Pantone 877 C (silver) and Pantone 876 C (bronze). Of course, all other metallic colours of the standard Formula Guide and Metallic Formula Guide from Pantone are also available.
While motifs are applied to surfaces by printing, embroidery enables them to be woven directly into textiles. This particularly durable embroidery, which is also resistant to washing and light, is particularly suitable for heavy-duty clothing, such as workwear. The use of high-quality yarn colours creates colour-fast and noble-looking embroidery designs. At the same time, a unique look and feel is achieved, which makes your clothing look exclusive.
Please note: For an optimum print result, line width should be at least 0.5 mm. Please choose a font size of at least 11.
Choose between digital printing, screen printing, transfer printing or embroidery (from left to right) when ordering your polo shirts.

Preview your polo shirt - Screenproof
In order to preview your print, you can create a “screenproof” for a small surcharge. This is a digital view of your print product, which we store in your customer account, and which you can look at on your screen at home or in the office. If you like it, you can start the printing order immediately. If not, you can change the order and send the new print-version to us. Please note that screenproofs only have a resolution of 150 dpi, and are not true-colour, meaning the colours of the subsequent print product may differ.
