Established in 2013 The Live Ink Co. has a deep rooted history in the design and manufacture of band and tour merchandise. Having worked with a huge range of major labels, indies, events and organisations we produce everything in house from initial designs through to the actual printing and embroidery so we have complete control over every stage of the process.
It’s not just the music industry that we work with, events, clubs, charities, corporations, sports teams and fashion houses have all used us to provide their printed T-shirts, Bags, Hoodies and more.
Live Ink is a fully equipped state of the art production studio powered with 100% renewable energy. We have invested in industry leading equipment to ensure outstanding and consistent results featuring automatic MHM Screen Printing machines and Brother GTX Pro Direct To Garment Printers using the latest GOTS certified organic inks to ensure high quality durable prints time after time. Need threads? No problem, our in house embroidery machines can take care of all the stitches you need to achieve a premium look for your caps, hats, aprons and apparel.
As well as ensuring a premium look across our screen printing, direct ot garment printing and embroidery we also place huge importance on the environmental and ethical impact of our industry.
It’s no secret that clothing manufacture and decoration around the world has historically had enourmous impact on the environment from water, the earth used to grow cotton, harmful chemicals used and even the people involved in the farms & factories.
Thankfully there have been huge movements within the industry to change this and we are proud to work with ink and organic/recylced garment producers who have excellent credentials and certifications to ensure minimum envoironmental impact and maximum human investment in the future.
While online ordering is nearly always the quickest and easiest way to get your custom clothing we are also firm believers in the importance of being able to come in and talk over designs or feel the finish or cut of a garment and welcome you to come in and visit our T-Shirt printing headquarters in Bristol where you will find samples and a team ready to help you get the best print possible from your designs. You’ll find our HQ in Old Market, Bristol and there’s even free parking outside.
As well as printing t-shirts in our Bristol studio we love nothing more than taking screen printing, DTG or embroidery out into a festival field or event so that people can enjoy the printing process themselves. Live event printing was the genesis for Live Ink and you’ll find us all over the UK helping people screen print their own t-shirt or personalising a garment with DTG.
We understand that getting your designs onto fabric can be a difficult process and we are more than happy to help you out with any questions you may have about screen printing, DTG, embroidery or getting an order set up so please don’t hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have.
