DiGiT Universal Numbering System

DiGiT Numbering System mounted to a Vastex V2000 4/4 screen printing machineScreen printing numbers onto sports shirts is made quick and easy when you use the DiGiT universal numbering system for screen printers.

The DiGiT athletic numbering system by Vastex takes the headache out of screen printing numbers onto garments and is the ideal solution for high production requirements.

Printing numbers onto garments has in the past not been easy and generally very time consuming using awkward attachments, heat transfers or stencils. There is also the risk of spoiling expensive team shirts, so a reliable method is paramount if you want to offer the service of screen printing numbers onto sportswear.

The DiGiT universal numbering system offers a cost-effective and easy-to-use kit that works with virtually any rear clamp screen printing press and will turn athletic numbering jobs into a profitable extension of your screen printing business.

The image above shows the DiGiT universal numbering system mounted to a V2000 screen printing press. If you regularly do screen printing of numbers, you may want to consider a dedicated press for the purpose, but for smaller volumes the DiGiT accessory can simply be fitted to your screen printing equipment when needed.

Register numbers quickly and accurately

Once installed on the screen printing machine, simply slide the screen left and right to instantly locate and lock-in the exact position for each number using the special detent rail that uses a bright yellow arrow to guide you to perfect numbering. The DiGiT universal numbering system uses two screens, each having 5 numbers pre-burned onto the screens for quick and easy installation and use. There is a choice of nine different fonts available, or if you would like to put your own style of numbers onto the screens, you can save money by using your own screen positives – all we have to supply are un-exposed screens that are ready for your designs. For a small additional cost, we can provide a template that will help position the designs on the screens.

Wrong Positioning Wrong Positioning Correct Positioning of Numbers
Without Vastex number spacing, the narrow 1 creates too much space between numbers and the two-digit design is slightly off-centre. Moving the number 1 closer to the number 7 reduces the spacing but the two-digit printed design is now significantly off-centre With Vastex number spacing the space between numbers is reduced and the two-digit number is centrally positioned with no reduction in print speed

Advanced number spacing

Screen printing numbers that are properly positioned, especially two digit numbers that incorporate the number 1 has always been a headache, but not so with the DiGiT universal numbering system. The system is able to compensate for any combination of numbers using a choice of five position notches for every number. This ensures that the spacing between the numbers will always be correct and the resulting two digit number appears on the centre of the garment.

Two colour design options

Screen printing numbers in two colours is just as simple and can be done in either 20 cm or 30 cm sizes, you need to purchase a second DiGiT system, and you will be able to print outlines or a combination of colours directly onto the garment. Various fonts offer the option of single colour, two colour with outline or two colour with drop shadow.

Print 2 to 3 times faster than with any comparable numbering system

Not just for screen printing numbers

It is equally as easy to print names, pocket designs or any other graphics from the same sliding screens. The DiGiT system can be customised for your special application too, just enquire. If you have a four station press, you can add team names or other images to the garments you are printing as well.
