Lo-Key Clothing Frequently Asked Questions


Vinyl comes in many different formats such as metallic, flock, glitter, reflective colours, it gives a smooth even finish with crisp edges making it a great option for:

  • Corporate Uniforms
  • Individual slogans, names and numbers
  • Multi-colour logos that need to be bright and bold
  • One off designs
  • Nylon Fabrics – High Vis work wear, waterproof materials etc.
  • Sports Wear that contains lycra and stretch
  • Glitter vinyl makes a great print or hen dos & sweet 16th tees

Flock vinyl gives the design a 3D furry effect to the end result. Your design can be full flock or just have elements of the flock added to the vinyl above. The printing process is the same as with the vinyl in the description above.

Vinyl print is generally one colour but we can overlay different colours to produce desired effects. Artwork is required in a vector format which can be created in software such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. These pieces of software will save the imaged in lines instead of pixels.

Once your design has been cut we then use a weeding process to get rid of the excess vinyl. Once this process has been completed we are left with the details of your design/logo. Once your prints are complete we move on to the next step which to heat press them. This is done using a heat press that applies the pressure and heat for the print to bond to the garment, this process is completed by hand for a flawless finish.


At Lo-Key our expert team work with our clients throughout the whole process ensuring that we get your idea just as you want it. Here are a few key points to keep in mind when creating your design.

We advise that you create your design in one of the following programs:

  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Freehand
  • Quark Xpress
  • Acrobat

Save your designs in one of the following formats: PDF, ESP, TIFF, JPEG, AI


Using a low quality image will not give you a nice crisp finish to your design, we recommend that all images used are 300 DPI or higher quality with a minimum 3mm bleed. If an image is low quality we will always let you know and assist you with working out a solution to improve the quality.


In cases where the artwork given is low quality it may have to be redrawn to correct the issues – if you cannot get this done we have an expert team who can do this for you (artwork redraws start from a cost of £25.00 depending on the amount of detail the design contains).

Please be aware that many companies will simply use the image you supply without offering you advise on how to improve the quality of your order.

If you have any queries regarding your artwork please get in touch at info@lokeyclothing.com, we will be happy to assist you.


We can print a surface area of up to 14” sq. at one time. If you are trying to keep to a strict budget we recommend that you keep the print area smaller as this will affect the cost of the product that you are creating.


If you require a specific colour for your print let us know the pantone numbers you require.


All our prices include the cost of the garment, however in cases where you would like to use your own garments you may drop them off to us before they are needed. All garments provided must be brand new, unused, unwashed and preferably 100% cotton. Please note that if the garments are not given by the time requested this will affect the dispatch date.
