D4 & H4 Full Color
We Offer Full Color Printing On Select Bottles & Mugs
D4 | digital four color process
This 4 color process applies ink directly to an item, followed by a protective clear coat. This results in a raised texture that adds a dimension to your print that brings it to life. Submitted artwork should be at 300+ dpi and must be qualified to print. Wrap imprints are available for an added cost.
H4 | heat transfer four color process
The H4 process is when ink is sprayed onto transfer film, then applied to an item. This is available as a one sided imprint, and can be done as a wrap for an additional cost. Artwork must be submitted at 300+ dpi and qualified to print. Available items are shown below.
