IDML has been advising and serving customers with safety footwear for over 8 years (our parent company has been in the market since 1982!). Together, we have over 40 years worth of expertise available in this area.

In 1999, was set up to tap into the new "dot com" thing that was going to be all the rage. Initially just a page based site, with no proper ordering & security facilities, it was soon developed to allow customers to purchase online with all the safety of encryption and SSL necessary to give customers peace of mind. Now in it's 4th generation, the site uses SecPay as a third party, bank authorised, secure card checking and authorising party - WE don't even get to see your card details!   As demand and acceptance has risen, so the site has developed. We now run on an SQL database system and can offer around 300 styles from all the leading manufacturers. We have recently added an extra layer of access to enable larger companies to tailor the site to their own specific requirements, making full blown e-business available where required.

Embroidery and Heat Seal Welding Equipment

At IDML we offer a full in-house design and digitisation service, we will take your design idea and make it ready to apply to your chosen garments.

At IDML we offer the following in-house logo design and application systems:   Embroidery
Embroidery is the classic way to apply your company logo or team name to any garment. It is hard wearing, and gives a feel, and look, of quality to any organisation.

Heatseal Printing

Heatseal is a process where coloured vinyl film is cut and heat pressed to permanently fuse it to a garment.

It is normally used where the logo to be applied is required to be very large (i.e the back of a shirt or jacket)

DTG Printing

DTG Printing is a process where coloured dyes are applied to a garment to recreate the original design.

It great for reproducing photographs and designs for special events ( i.e stag & hen party's, birthdays, retail sales, and promotional giveaways).

Transfer Printing

Transfer printing is a halfway house between heatseal & dtg printing, coloured inks are laid down on transfer material and then heat applied to garments.

They can be applied to any type of garment, wash really well and are a cost effective alternative for larger garment orders.
