The Problem

They came to us after using other printing companies where they were unsatisfied with their printing practices, the lack of communication and general bad practises. After various phone calls, emails and meetings in the office, we came to understand what the client needed and they decided that we were for them. Some of the designs for products were ready straight away whilst others took longer. This was because different material make ups of garments needed to have different processes. For example, the leggings needed testing because of how stretchy leggings need to be. We needed to make sure the print did not distort or crumple whilst also making sure no heat mark was left.

We have now worked with The Metal Collective for over 3 years. We now fulfil large bulk orders for The Metal Collective every month which will carry on into the future.
