Expert Brand Launches OSI Premium Printables Program
Expert Brand, Vernon, Calif., has announced the launch of its One Order, One Shipment, One Invoice (OSI) program, which offers printed performance shirts in one set-up. Customers can place an order by including their selected style numbers and colors, and uploading their desired artwork, and they will receive complimentary shipments within seven to 14 days.
When using traditional printing on cotton and poly/cotton fabrics with high temperatures, there's a potential for shrinkage, bleeding, pilling or a lack of performance attributes where the decoration is located. By using eco-friendly inks with Oeko-tex 100-certified printing methods and technology, Expert Brand can uphold the integrity of the shirt, while maintaining the performance attributes of the fabrics, such as permanent moisture wicking, antimicrobials, breathability and wrinkle resistance.
“Given the feedback from our valued customers and potential clients, we took the initiative to consult with many ink manufacturers and create a program that solves many of these decorating challenges,” said Horacio Gonzalez, director of printables at Expert Brand. “Our OSI program is a game changer and unlike any other solution in the market. Customers no longer have to be concerned about what type of ink is used, how it will react to the fabric, and any other negative effects it may have on the functionality of the garment. We are delivering a true performance product through OSI, and we are proud to be known as the one-stop shop of decorated performance apparel.”
Expert Brand’s most popular and proprietary hybrid standard print ink, called SubLike, not only prints on performance apparel, but it has a soft hand (with no or little feel) and works on all chosen colors. Other available inks include:
- Sponge-like, which offers a raised, puffy feel to elevate logos and images
- Reflective, which offers a light bounce-back effect for safety precaution
- Illuminate, which provides a reversible color change in the presence of sunlight and UV light
- Exposed, which takes the decoration from white to transparent (when wet) to reveal a message
Customers within the U.S. now have the opportunity to shop using the OSI program by contacting the Expert Brand customer service department at (323) 780-7800. To download the Expert Brand OSI program brochure, click here.
