Inspired by the 2009 feature film & developed exclusively for Roddenberry.Com, these fashion T-shirts feature USS Enterprise division colors and insignias. Constructed of 100% heavyweight Cotton, they are the perfect casual uniform. The custom-made insignias are NOT screen printed, nor are they patches. Instead, an innovative method was used that utilizes flex material (also called apparel film) and flock. The silver areas of the insignias are flex and feature a metallic look. The black portions of the insignias are made from flock, a velvet-like material with a three dimensional look and feel. The metallic flex and black flock are individually placed components that are precisely cut on a vinyl cutter, and then applied with a professional heat press (NOT a hand-iron) using very high temperatures and pressures. These graphics will actually outlast the shirts that they are "printed" on. Best of all, these shirts are 100% machine washable and dryable!
