Making a quiyk garment begins with an idea. Matt, the co-founder and graphic designer and Eric will sit down and try to come up something cool. Simple as that. The idea part of the manufacturing process is definitely the most fun.
Patterns & Fabric
After a design is agreed upon, fabric is ordered. As the fabric is being prepared for shipping, the patterns for the garments are cut, so as soon as the fabric arrives at the sewing company, the garments can get sewn. Each style of shirt or short requires its own pattern.
Printing – Sublimation
Once the rolls of fabric have been turned into actual garments, the goods are delivered to the sublimation printer. Dye sublimation printing is a process in which the garments are placed under a press and images are heat pressed into the physical garment. This process allows the goods to maintain the breathability and feel of a polyester shirt with no print.
Tags & Shipping
After printing is completed, each shirt or short receives its labels and patches, and is boxed. From start to finish, this process takes about a month. The time and care taken on producing a quiyk product is a just a testament to the finished quality of every single good we sell.
