Buffs / Headscarves
Its funky, fashionable & comfortable regardless whether you wear it with casual clothing or sportswear! Buffs are also known as headscarves, scarves, neck bandanas & even headbands – which in reality isnt headbands but can be worn as a multi functional headwear.
We custom print buffs & headscarves according to clients’ needs. We manufacture the customized buffs in-house – the process begins with printing on our dye sublimation machine, we then transfer the print to a heat press that fuses the pigment to the polyester fabric ( 3 types suitable for buffs are available ) and finally cut & trimmed & overlocked to complete the buff. Besides the buffs being high fashion, it also helps curb the spread of microorganisms such as virusses / germs. It is great to use as a UV protection scarf for any extreme sports person requiring protection from the sun around their neck. Furthermore many moto-cross participants use these neckbandanas to protect them from breathing in excessive dust whilst in the field. It is printed on a polyester material which is commonly known as a quick drying fabric – perfect for the hot climate & any sport enthusiasts!
The advantage of the dye sublimation process on the full colour buffs, is that the ink pigments gets fused to the material using a heat press, which means it will never fade no matter how many times it gets washed (It will fade when ironing – but ironing is not necessary at all!). The print is much more “crisp” than that of screenprinting or direct to garment UV printing. This is the same printing method used when manufacturing other sportswear & sports garments such as golf shirts, team jerseys and cycling pants. All our base material is supplied in white, and we print it full colour ensuring a 100% coverage on one side ( inner remains . Pricing remains the same regardless of the number of colours to be printed.
Whether you call them buffs, neckerchiefs, scarves, multi-functional headwear, it all remains a one size fits all garment, which can be manufactured for toddlers, children, teens and adults alike
No order is too big or too small – we are able to print only one or two bandanas to your requirements. We do however have a minimum overall order amount of R500 excl VAT, thus if you require one buff, you can expect to pay R500 excl VAT for it.
