Probably one of the more common stitches in sewing, a single needle passes through the fabric creating a smooth even seam. The upper and lower threads join in the fabric and “lock” in place to prevent unraveling.
Almost identical to the single needle lockstitch, this machine uses two needles which helps to cut production costs. This stitch can sacrifice the smoothness on some materials. The most common use of this machine is denim stitching.
Just what it sounds like, these machines use multiple needles, heads and often colors of thread at the same time. More commonly seen in embroidery, they can sew multiple patterns and items simultaneously.
This piece of equipment derives its name from its close resemblance to an actual foot. For heavy duty applications, this helps feed material into the machine ensuring an evenly stitched final product.
While often referred to as a “serger” stitch in North America this machine has a variety of uses. Most commonly it is used for creating hems and loops on the very edge of the fabric or material. Many of these machines can also create decorative edging as well.
True to its name this simple stich has a variety of uses, one of which is enabling stretchy fabrics to stretch further without breaking a stitch.
These programmable machines move along a grid pattern and are able to sew thousands of stitches a minute. The other great benefit is the ability to save the patterns to a drive for easy recreation and uniformity.
Most commonly used with knitted fabrics and materials that will need to have good range of motion, it combines the zig zag pattern on the underside while having a double needle look on top.
These stitches are primarily utilized as reinforcing for high wear or extreme stress. These are the preferred method for attaching molle style webbing, tactical gear loops and garment openings.
Yup that’s it, a square (or rectangle) with a cross through it in the shape of an X. Chances are you’ve seen these every day from holding handles on a briefcase or on a tactical shoulder straps.
Often used in the construction of materials that will be in close contact with the skin this stitch has the added value of being both comfortable and strong.
This one is more about the machine than the pattern of the thread, a special base enables sewing of the material in a loop, mostly uses on round bags and totes.
Like the cylinder bed, this machine is tuned for a specific purpose- namely the sewing of three-dimensional bags and heavy gage material. Primarily used in construction of items like car seats, sofas and sporting goods.
Unlike some other stitches this one is made to not be seen and is normally located in the fold of the material.
Usually made of metal or plastic, these component pieces allow the attachment and detachment of parts, flaps and accessories between items. Snaps can be applied manually or automatically depending on the detail and precision needed with each material.
Grommets are used to create a metal or plastic reinforced hole in a material for a variety of uses- normally to protect cable pulls or prevent sheet or panel damage. Drainage, tie down, and tensioning points are a few examples.
Whether for reinforcement or fashion, rivets have been used for a long time, usually in the form of a simple two piece metal rod that is pressed through fabric or metal to create a permanent bond.
Ink is pulled through screens containing image layers and cured. While only one color is printed at a time, layering and using multiple screens allows for complex colors and effects. Flocking, metallic inks, mirrored silver, foil, water based inks, and expanding inks are just a few of our options.
Applying branding to products cut from materials like vinyl with a heat press is one option for labeling. Heat transfer provides a very durable and precise bond for applications that see a lot of abuse or are exposed to extreme elements.
Multi-head and multi-color machines are used to stitch anything from logos, lettering or even full-sized images into soft good applications. Once an image is digitized it can be recreated multiple times with accuracy and precision.
Steel or steel rule dies are created from patterns and used with heavy presses to cut a wide range of materials. This increases both cutting efficiency while ensuring all components are uniform.
Automated cutting ensures speed and accuracy when cutting webbing or cordage. From nylon to cotton, hook and loop to ribbon, it all can be measured and cut with precision. These machines can have cool or heated blades depending on the material being cut. Heated blades are used on synthetic components to ensure a smooth finished edge while preventing unraveling.
Using a screen stencil, we can label and place full color designs or logos on your product without the need to sew on tags or woven patches. Screen print labeling is the best for large quantity printing.
We can fold and place your products into your supplied packaging so they are ready to ship to your clients once they reach your distribution center. Depending on the need, drop-ship fulfillment could be an option.
