CustomThread Beta-Launch

I think we just found the happiest t-shirt printing factory in town.
With top-of-the-kind printing machines, vibrant work place, engaging staff and cute dogs!!!!
They really take customizing apparel to a whole new level.

Let me introduce you CustomThread!

The idea of customizing your apparel from the type of garment, design to the little details such as buttons, zippers and collars might seem too much to handle, but CustomThread will make it easy for you! Through their newly launched website CustomThread.com, the whole process is just breeze. They have a build-your-own-design app, cost-calculator, and payment and delivery services. 

 You can also start your own online store and fundraising campaign and sell your designs through their e-commerce system called Fundr! No worries about start-up capital, production, payment and delivery, because they can help you in every step of the way! Cool!

Their headquarters is located at Brgy. Don Antonio, Quezon City. This spacious and lively place is where they hold their state-of-the-art printing machines. Be ready to be welcomed by their PR dogs and friendly staff who also gave us a tour and live demos of the services.

From T-shirts, jackets, sportswear, corporate uniforms, to casual outfits, they offer personalized designs whether you’re ordering one or one million pieces. Just give them your logo or design or create your own using their build-your-own design app that let’s you customize fonts, images, to colors of sleeves.

Feeling thrilled to start your design but having trouble what printing method is best?
You can pick from their technologies according to your needs (basic colors, patterns on swimwear, embroidery on sweaters).

Check out the various printing methods they showed us during their factory tour!

They have the newest printing technology called Kornit Direct to Garment (DTG) for high quality printing of images and multiple colors.

It's like a huge t-shirt printer. The shirt is pressed flat on the printing platform and the design could be seen on the screen.

As you can see, Kornit machine really prints the image on the shirt like how an office printer works on paper. 

While on black and dark colored-shirts, the machine prints first a white base-color to make the design colors vivid.

Then it is fed through a dryer called ADELCO, to make the colors last more on the shirt.

Another printing option is sublimation. The design could be printed all around the fabric!
The design is first printed on paper.

Then it is transferred on cloth via heat press!
And here we have a basketball shirt!

This is best for irregularly sized fabrics and if you want to print full patterns or image on your cloth!
If you have cute patterns for skirts, tops and swimwears in mind, then this is the machine that will make it real!

They also do silkscreen! Best for 3 colors and below with a tangible ink finish.

Every color requires a new "screen". It's amazing that the process is done manually and they can produce a lot!

Don't want the usual print and you prefer the classic? They also have a digital embroidery machine!

Guaranteed speed and precision, and can produce 15 colors!!

As they are an all-inclusive platform, you don't need to worry about delivery and packaging!
You can also choose if you want those bundled in eco-bands, in plastic, in cloth bags that you can also customize with your own brand or logo! 

Must be a lot of work to produce a shirt? Oh these guys know the work-play balance! This area is their cafe-slash-bar where their staff could unwind and grab a drink while playing with their Golden Retrievers! 

Wondering why this company is such a happy place? I tried to ask their PR Director, Dallas Sy. Apparently he doesn't talk much. Haha. (Yep he's the Golden Retriever down there. Hehe.)

So I just talked to their CEO, Erik Sy!
CustomThread believe in "Together We Can" attitude. Good products are results of a collaborative effort and a happy working environment.
"Together we make things possible."

Thanks Custom Thread for a fun night! Congrats!
