"Digital sublimation is taking the decorated garment industry by storm," says Vapor Apparel’s Chief Revenue Officer Christopher Bernat. "Our customers are demanding greater options for fully customizable apparel. With our new cut and sew services, they’re able to meet this demand while promoting domestic jobs, as all of our cut and sew garments are proudly ‘Made in the USA.’"
The product line includes styles for anglers, action sports, cycling, martial arts, hunting and sportsman, motocross, and general team sports.
In order to make a cut and sew garment, a digital design is printed on a roll of fabric. This design is then “cut” into individual pieces, and then sewn together. The end result is a garment with a customized design covering every inch of fabric. Cut and sew is popular among customers looking for complete customization.
“The intricacies of cut and sew decorating means our service is not intended for individual consumers, or end-customers,” says Jackson Burnett, president of Vapor Apparel. “We created our cut and sew program for screen printers and design houses, so decorators with a good art department will love it. They can offer cut and sew, dye sublimation decorating at competitive margins to their customers without the capital investment.”
Since Vapor Apparel’s cut and sew facilities are all located in the southeastern United States, customers help create quality, American jobs.
“Every purchase of Vapor’s cut and sew apparel keeps more textile work here in the United States,” says Bernat. “The domestic production of our apparel is something we’re working to expand in the coming years. Made in the USA is a feature our customers want, and a service we’re happy to provide as an industry leader focused on a business model that gives back to our community. That includes bringing apparel jobs back to the US from Asia and other offshore locations based on service.”
Founded in Charleston, South Carolina in 2004, Vapor Apparel is the industry leader in Sublimation Certified performance apparel, and is recognized by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA), Impressions Magazine, Wearables magazine, and the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) for award winning product development, print quality and a commitment to the apparel industry.
