The jackets we provided were also made from high-quality materials and featured the CDN Restoration DKI logo embroidered on the front.

The custom apparel we provided for CDN Restoration DKI was carefully selected to meet their needs and reflect their brand’s image. We made sure that each item was made from high-quality materials and offered a range of colours and sizes to ensure that everyone had a perfect fit.
We used two decoration techniques for the custom apparel provided to CDN Restoration DKI: heat press and embroidery. Each technique has its own unique benefits and was chosen based on the specific item and the desired effect.
Heat press is a decoration technique that uses heat and pressure to apply a design onto the surface of the clothing. A vinyl transfer of the design is placed onto the clothing and then heat and pressure are applied to make the transfer adhere to the fabric. The benefits of heat press are that it is cost-effective for larger orders, it can be used to create intricate designs, and it offers a range of colours and finishes to choose from, such as metallic or glitter.
Embroidery is a technique that uses thread to create designs onto the surface of the clothing. The design is digitized and then a computerized embroidery machine is used to stitch the design onto the fabric. The benefits of embroidery are that it is durable, it creates a textured and professional look, and it offers a wide range of colours and finishes to choose from.
For the custom hats provided to CDN Restoration DKI, we chose embroidery as it offers a professional and long-lasting finish that is perfect for hats. The thread creates a textured look that adds depth to the design and ensures that it will not fade or peel.
For the hoodies and jackets provided to CDN Restoration DKI, we chose the heat press technique as it is perfect for creating intricate designs with a range of colours and finishes. The vinyl transfer can be cut into any shape, making it ideal for creating the large-scale designs we wanted for the back of the hoodie and the jacket. Additionally, the heat press technique creates a smooth and flat finish that is perfect for hoodies and jackets.
We carefully chose the decoration technique based on the specific item and the desired effect, to ensure that the custom apparel we provided to CDN Restoration DKI would meet their needs and reflect their brand’s image.
Heat Press for Hoodies and Jackets
The heat press technique was used to apply the designs onto the hoodies and jackets provided to CDN Restoration DKI. This process involves using heat and pressure to transfer a vinyl design onto the fabric of the clothing. Here is a step-by-step process of how the heat press technique was used:
Step 1: Design Creation
The first step was to create the designs for the back of the hoodie and the jacket. The designs were created using graphic design software and then sent to the vinyl cutter to cut the design into the vinyl material.
Step 2: Cutting the Vinyl
Once the design was created, it was sent to the vinyl cutter to cut the design into the vinyl material. The vinyl was then weeded, which means that the excess material around the design was removed, leaving only the design itself.
Step 3: Applying the Vinyl
The vinyl design was then placed onto the hoodie or jacket in the desired location. The hoodie or jacket was then placed onto the heat press, and the vinyl design was positioned onto the fabric with the help of heat-resistant tape.
Step 4: Heat and Pressure
Once the vinyl design was in place, the heat press was closed, and heat and pressure were applied to the design for a set amount of time. The heat press temperature and timing were carefully selected based on the fabric of the hoodie or jacket.
Step 5: Final Result
After the set amount of time had passed, the heat press was opened, and the vinyl design was removed, leaving the final result. The vinyl had adhered to the fabric, creating a durable and vibrant design.
The benefits of using the heat press technique for these items are that it is cost-effective for larger orders, it can be used to create intricate designs, and it offers a range of colours and finishes to choose from, such as metallic or glitter. Additionally, the heat press technique creates a smooth and flat finish that is perfect for hoodies and jackets. The vinyl material used in heat press is durable and can withstand multiple washes, ensuring that the design will last for a long time.
Embroidery for Hats
The embroidery technique was used to apply the designs onto the hats provided to CDN Restoration DKI. This process involves using a computer-controlled embroidery machine to stitch the design onto the fabric of the hat. Here is a step-by-step process of how the embroidery technique was used:
Step 1: Digitizing the Design
The first step was to digitize the design that was provided by CDN Restoration DKI. This involves using software to convert the design into a format that can be read by the embroidery machine.
Step 2: Setting up the Machine
Once the design was digitized, it was loaded into the embroidery machine, and the hat was hooped onto the machine. The embroidery machine was then set up with the thread colour and the correct needle.
Step 3: Running the Machine
The machine was then started, and the design was stitched onto the fabric of the hat. The embroidery machine uses multiple needles and thread colours to create the design.
Step 4: Final Result
Once the embroidery was complete, the hat was removed from the machine, and any excess threads were trimmed. The final result was a high-quality and professional-looking embroidered design on the hat.
The benefits of using the embroidery technique for hats are that it creates a high-quality and durable design that will last for a long time. Embroidery is perfect for hats as it offers a range of thread colours and finishes to choose from, creating a vibrant and detailed design. Additionally, embroidery is ideal for creating small designs or text that would be difficult to achieve with other decoration techniques. Lastly, embroidery adds a professional touch to the hat, making it perfect for corporate apparel.
In conclusion, Workwear Toronto provided CDN Restoration DKI with custom apparel that included hats, hoodies, and jackets, each with their branding. The hoodies and jackets were decorated using the heat press technique, which provides a long-lasting and vibrant design, while the hats were embroidered, offering a professional and detailed finish.
