WELCOME GIFTS FOR NEW HIRES
Director of HR, Anabel Rubio, shares her secrets on how she uses branded merchandise in the on-boarding process in this blog post.
Much like an office printer, except instead of printing onto paper it prints directly onto fabric with waterbased ink. There is no limit on the amount of colors you can use and it does not have the set-up costs associated with screenprinting (therefore it can be cost effective for small batches).
Digital printing is great for:
+ Photos or high detail designs
+ Graphics with lots of colors
+ Small quantities or custom orders
