The Show Store offers Stain Imaging, a versatile and cost-effective decorating technique to create customized t-shirt textures, patterns, and backgrounds. The specialty treatment was originally created in the 1990s and has developed into an attractive alternative that shares some characteristics with well-known printing and dye techniques including jumbo screen printing, sublimation, direct-to-garment, tie dye, mineral washes, and more. Unlike traditional printing techniques, Stain Imaging has a softness and weathered or distressed look that naturally integrates the design into the garment. This specialty treatment is unique to Stain Imaging, as the proprietary machines were built from the ground-up.
Stain Imaging is a great option for merchandise retailers looking to create a unique pattern, an alternative to traditional name-dropping, a one of a kind souvenir or gift item, to build their line of licensed teams and characters, artists and attraction, or show support for a cause or organization. Garments utilizing the Stain Imaging process can also be further customized utilizing traditional screen-printing, embroidery and appliqué techniques.
The Show Store offers a variety of T-Shirt styles and colors to be printed. Though 100% cotton products are recommended and provide the best results, the stain Imaging technique will work on polyester blends.
The Show Store art department will work with your art department or ad agency to engineer a unique pattern or theme. “We are here to support the design, layout, and presentation process at whatever level you need.” The treatment process ensures that no two shirts are exactly the same, resulting in a truly individual product. The minimum run is 144 shirts, which can be a combination of sizes, styles, and colors as long as they receive the same stain color.
Simply send us an URL to your hosted file/s with all the elements that you would like included in the design; Best 10-15 elements. They must be of reasonable quality, black and while ONLY, (no grays, grayscale or halftones) Preferably vector art (we can convert if buyer is not versed in the process): Company images, Logos, descriptive key words or phrases, special fonts.
We will then assemble a design comp for your approval. Once you sign off on the comp, please allow two to three weeks for production. If you wish a production sample, there will be additional costs incurred and a delay in production until you have signed off on the production sample. Please note that the comp will be a very strong facsimile of the final delivered product and in most cases a production sample is not necessary. For US orders, we will ship standard UPS unless otherwise instructed.
Clothing Styles and colors will be submitted to you for consideration during the design process. Presently we only offer ladies, men and children short sleeve tee shirts utilizing the Stain Imaging process.
For customers with large networks of employees, members or chapters, The Show Store can provide, at no charge, a fully transactional customized website hosting only client branded products, however, The Show Store is not a single order fulfillment house and only provides drop shipping to limited destination.
