GPS Bureau Service

It is fair to say that 2020 has seen challenges across the industry. Following the national lockdown and with the introduction of social distancing we have seen a dramatic reduction in events, concerts, sporting fixtures and theatre performances. The knock-on effect to the bespoke apparel and merchandising manufacturing has seen a lot of our customers diversify and expand into new markets.

The GPS 3 stage Bureau service supports our clients whilst they develop the appropriate skills.
Stage 1: From supplied artwork GPS can produce completed transfers on behalf of our trade-only clients. Supporting this service, we also provide a pressing facility. This allows business to expand into the transfer market with no capital investment.

Stage 2: GPS produce and supply back to our clients the printed digital sheet along with the positive film, our clients produce the screens and back the transfers up with MagnaTrans ink/adhesive. As our clients develop their skills and expertise, this stage helps them to migrate production in-house without having to invest in digital equipment.

Stage 3: As our clients evolve into a full transfer production facility, GPS support does not end. We then advise and supply equipment from a range of manufacturers. With the supply of the equipment, we offer extensive training and support package enabling our clients to develop their internal workforce and production.

Our Bureau service has supported a lot of our trade-only customers through these challenging times, GPS recognise that you can’t have a one size fits all. Whatever the client’s requirement our dedicated customer services team work closely with them to ensure they receive a first-class product and service.

Transfers are printed on to transfer papers or films in a variety of finish options, with hot or cold peel applications; the choice of film used depends on the manufacturing process and desired finish.
