Printing: Common methods for printing patterns on gloves include digital printing and heat transfer printing.

Among them, digital printing has the advantage of no color quantity limitation and the ability to achieve complex and gradient color patterns. It is charged on a printed area (square meter) basis.

Heat transfer involves the printed pattern onto the glove fabric through heat and pressure, allowing the pattern to blend with the fabric and create a leather-like effect. The cost is calculated according to the size of the pattern and the number of orders.
