Lancastle have recently bought a large format plotter allowing application of vinyl flex prints to our products. Given a vector file of a logo or image, the plotter cuts an outline in one colour vinyl which is then fixed to the material using a heat press. The end result gives a quality look for the product and is a good alternative to screen printing.
Lancastle has redesigned a Diving Helmet Liner to provide additional comfort. The liner features a number of removable foam pads which are combined in stages to give the desired level of cushioning. The liner is held in place using nickel plated poppers.
Working for Kingdom of Sport, Lancastle has designed a revised shape range of rugby and football kits in polyester stretch fabric suitable for sublimation printing. The shirts feature more material in the shoulders, slimmer waists and longer backs for a more athletic fit. The shorts are cut higher on the thighs making it more comfortable to run. All sportswear now has overlocked seams with 3 needle coverstitch re-enforcement for extra strength.
Designed initially for use in the nuclear power industry, our foreign material exclusion covers & tarpaulins are being used more widely in other industrial environments. We have gained a good reputation for our hard-wearing, standardised product range using anti-static material and short delivery lead times for bespoke printed orders.
We’ve added to our range of Fun Patches….. These new skull and crossbones black fabric Fun Patches have all the same design features as the original fun patches plus a vinyl transfer in assorted colours and finishes, including glow in the dark, neon and sparkles. The patches are made from soft breathable material that keeps its shape even after washing and is comfortable and fun to wear. The patch attaches inside of the glasses frame and is shaped to follow the contours of the face, ensuring proper occlusion. Colour options: Sparkle - blue, red, orange, silver, pink. Neon - pink, green, yellow, orange. Glow in the dark white.

Newly installed sublimation print presses are a good addition to our existing printing capabilities, allowing bespoke, bold, colour printing to polyester, resulting in a wash safe, non peel marking. We have recently used this new machinery to produce numbered competitor tabards for the 2011 World Sheep Dog Trials which will be used by dog handlers arriving from 23 nations.
