In-House Production

Our extensive range of plant and equipment not only makes us one of the largest garment decorators in Europe but also enables us to complete your entire order ‘In-House’ with no outworking required.


The Way we work...

Each client is assigned to a team consisting of an Account Manager, an Order Manager and an Artworker to ensure consistency of work throughout the entire process. Any garment can be re-labelled, kimble tagged and repacked to your exact requirements. At Doves we have the ability and experience to produce products to retail standards in all departments.

Screen Printing

For clients requiring high quality screen printed images, on both light and dark coloured garments, our state of the art equipment is capable of reproducing both large or small designs. We print up to 14 Spot Colours, High Quality Photo-realistic Simulated Process images & Specialty ink techniques. By using our own in house studio, our graphic artists are able to create a precise set of colour separations that will reproduce the sharpest images over long or short print runs. The inks we use are environmentally friendly and guaranteed to wash well. We are always exploring ways to enhance merchandise and promotional materials so if you require something that’s different we can talk through the best range of finishes to ensure that your products really stand out. Our current capacity for printed garments is 200,000+ per week.

Ideal for vibrant multi-coloured logos, Suitable for Polyester and Nylon fabrics, hi-vis jackets, waterproofs and umbrellas. Works well on Spandex or Lycra sports and leisurewear, Digitally produced so can facilitate individual names and / or numbers. Dye-Sublimation uses traditional printing machinery in the most non-traditional of ways. It creates a ‘fusion’ of image and textile that allows fashion designers to explore new territories. Sublimation ink integrates pigment directly into fabric, achieving colourfast vibrant results without compromising the drape and texture of the chosen garment. The sublimation process begins by printing a colour accurate design onto paper and the ink then vaporises when heated and applied to material, creating a precise image of the design onto the material.
