Raise your grades and inspire your students with digital print technology and advanced manufacturing
Set new benchmarks for your school’s academic performance and inspire student creativity with a digital print solution that can integrate into multiple areas of the curriculum such as design technology, workshop, information technology, science, visual arts and more.
With competition for student mindshare and subject selection high, you need a way to inspire students to select subjects that will prepare them for the digital and advanced manufacturing jobs of the future.
So let your student's imaginations run wild with one of the digital print solutions below that will let them create thousands of products in the classroom, as part of the curriculum, or to promote the school itself.
Dye sublimation heat transfer technology
Dye sublimation is an easy entry point for educational institutions looking to integrate advanced manufacturing methods into the STEM curriculum, creative arts or as a personal branding solution for the school itself. Literally hundreds of different items can be created in the classroom with a single desktop dye sublimation solution.
Imagine not being locked into the creation of a single product line for an entire term and being able to guide students from design to completion of a product during a single class. All this, and more can be achieved when dye sublimation is introduced into the education environment.

Heat transfer vinyl technology
Heat transfer vinyl technology is another easy way for that schools can use advanced manufacturing to produce professional, personalised garments quickly, easily and very cost-effectively. Using just a computer, heat press and either a vinyl cutter or digital printer you can decorate just about any fabric or create amazing graphics transfers, stickers, logos and signage.
Heat transfer solutions are available in two solutions for schools. CAD-cut vinyl in perfect for single-colour creations such as text, logos and numbers for your school sporting team jerseys, or you can create more complex designs by applying multiple layers to a garment.
Add in a digital printer/cutter in conjunction with the heat press and students are then capable of creating high-impact, multi-coloured transfers. Let their imaginations run wild and push the boundaries of design that will be the talk of the school and have subject selection skyrocketing.

UV direct printing technology
If your cohort of students really wants to push the boundaries and create pretty much anything, then you need a UV direct printing solution in your classroom. With the ability to print onto virtually anything from glass to golf balls, pens, phone cases, USB drives and drink bottles, you’ll be able to bring advanced manufacturing to your school in a way that will capture the minds of both current the future students.
As one of the most environmentally friendly print processes, UV direct printing can also help you meet your green commitments, without compromising student creativity and output.
The UV ink is cured using a photomechanical process, eliminating VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). Printing with UV allows students to work in a cleaner and safer environment with zero emission of solvents into the air and no need to use solvents in the clean-up process.

Can my school make money with these solutions?
Absolutely! A digital print solution can provide your school with an exciting new revenue stream―from fundraising, to fetes to special events, graduation gifts and much, much more! And the margins on personalised products can range from 100% to more than 1000% depending on the quality and novelty of the printed product. The only limit is the creativity and imagination of your students!
BONUS! Bring your school branding in-house!
Much like the corporate world, a school’s brand has inherent value. From reputation within the local community, to a communication of culture, excellence and in some cases exclusivity. A beautiful brand experience serves to attract potential students, instil pride as well as energise staff.
Unfortunately, for many schools, their branding doesn’t extend beyond uniforms, signage and stationary. Most believe it necessary to order large quantities of branded promotional products offshore to meet expectations of budget approvers. This is no longer the case and savvy schools are embracing new digital printing technologies and bringing branding and the creation of promotional materials in-house.
