BOKKOP is a division of Sign-iT (Pty) Ltd, a Mossel Bay-based marketing, signage and printing company which was launched 14 years ago.
BOKKOP was started by two SADF veterans in order to produce apparel and other memorabilia for infantry veterans of the SADF. One of them is a veteran Parabat who is co-owner of Sign-iT. He saw a need for Paratrooper memorabilia, and what started off as t-shirts printed for friends, has grown since 2012 into the Paratrooper Shop (www.paratroopershop.co.za). The other was a tracker-dog handler with the SADF Dog Unit (or Doggie, as we were known). Of course, both paratroopers and dog handlers are infantry first, and their specialisation second!
BOKKOP meets the need for similar memorabilia for SAI veterans, and has been developing T-Shirts and other apparel to meet the need. BOKKOP brings with it all the experience of a signage and printing business, as well as the experience gained in custom T-Shirt and other apparel printing for the Paratrooper Shop, since 2012.
The Paratrooper Shop has a hard-earned reputation for quality, reliability and dependability which BOKKOP will derive the benefit of. We do direct to garment printing, which means we print ink directly to the t-shirt. The prints are guaranteed to last the life of the shirt and, because of the technology used, we are able to do small print runs on demand. We produce all our own designs and do all our own printing. This means that we are able to print on order. This results in very competitive pricing as we do not keep stock, and only print items once the order has been received.
It also means that we are able to do custom design and prints even of a single shirt. We do not screen print or do transfers, but do offer small run sublimation printing where required.
The direct to garment (dtg) technology we use works best on natural fibres, so our dtg-print products are all 100% cotton.
In addition to printing, we also do high quality embroidery.
Contact us for all your garment printing and embroidery requirements.
BOKKOP primarily does Direct to Garment (dtg) printing and embroidery. Transfers, dye sublimation etc. are not true dtg prints. Our process provides you with a print that will last the lifetime of the shirt and involves printing ink directly onto the garment as can be seen below. This ensures that high quality prints can be produced and even photographs reproduce well.
