About Us

Direct Textiles Ltd started out as a small screen printing company in 2003. Since then, we have developed year on year to become one of the UK’s leading garment decorators.

Based at our Head Office in Lincoln, we also have sites in Nottingham and Barnsley, in addition to several other partnerships further afield. This means we can offer an increasing range of services, and are still continuing to grow.

The production team has grown in recent years to a workforce of over 80, as the company sees steady increase month on month. Our flexible approach and consistently high print quality has brought about a great increase in blue chip clients providing garments to the retail industry.

One recent addition is another large format MHM screen printing machine, bringing our total to 8. Each of these are capable of producing approximately 500 printed garments per hour, making for around 32,000 printed garments on a standard eight hour shift. For products that require special packing we also have automatic folding and bagging machines.
