#1 Screen Printed Mats
Screen printing on wholesale yoga mats is the most common since you don’t need expensive equipment and it’s a relatively cheap process. It’s discussable if that’s the best way to create wholesale yoga mats since every yoga mat is handmade and it takes a lot of time to produce one.
Anyway, if you’re looking to promote your business or make creative yoga mats without using the expensive equipment, then screen printing might be the ideal method for you.
How does it work?
First of all, you have to have a graphic you’d like to put on your yoga mat. It’s usually a small graphic like a logo or slogan since this method isn’t suitable for detailed and visual graphic. After you picked the right yoga mat and the graphic you’d like to put, it’s time to transfer that graphic on a yoga mat.
The only equipment you’ll need is a tool that can produce heat over 200°C. After you have a temperature over 200°C then you position a graphic on the desired place and apply the heated object over the graphics (vinyl). Hold the object for a few seconds until the graphic isn’t fully transferred to a yoga mat.
