What are the 'M'/blue or 'W'/pink boxes on the gray strip above the configurator?

 

They are direct accesses back to the garments catalogue, but with gender filter. 

If we are seeing a woman’s garment, where we will see the “M”, that icon will take us to the men’s catalogue for that specific sport, and the other way round. 

 

Can I change the colour of the logos?

No, although there are two combinations of different colours (black/gray – white/gray) depending on the saturation of the colour chosen for the garment, but they will be determined automatically.

Why do I loose all my configurations when I change the size?

A garment is not really that, but the result of a group of pieces that the user can change and configure. Moving from one size to another means changing a group of pieces for new ones, so that the configuration we would have done on the previous group of pieces is lost. However, we are working on the website to be able to keep the configuration of the previous pieces on the new ones.

What’s the reset button for?

It deletes all the settings chosen from the beginning and it goes back to the default settings.

What are POPULAR DESIGNS garments?

The POPULAR DESIGNS tab on the configurator shows designs made by virKlon as basic examples, or as templates that the user can complete or change to his/her liking.

They are the most direct way for those people who want to spend as little time as possible in the customisation process.

Is the image on the configurator an accurate representation of the size?

Each time we change sizes on the configurator, we will be uploading new images (by default) to visualize the specific garment. But the image we visualize is always the same and represents a L size for men and a M size for women.

Can I change fabrics...?

Yes. Each garment has been pre-configured with a series of fabrics that we can change to our liking. 

On the FABRICS tab, under the configurator garment, we can get more information about each one of them so that it will be easier to decide.

They are divided into two main groups: impressable and unimpressable (or solids). We can choose between 184 colour references in the first group, while the second group will only have a limited colour chart for each one of them. 

 

What are impressable colours?

The fabrics chosen by virKlon can be divided into two main groups: impressable and unimpressable.

IMPRESSABLE: They are white polyester fabrics (with our without elastane) that have undergone a previous factory heat treatment and accept the sublimation transfer.

DYE SUBLIMATION HEAT TRANSFER: It’s the system used to apply colour to a fabric’s fiber without having to submerge it into dye. The colour motive is impressed with special ink and paper. Then the fabric is set over this impressed paper and is inserted into a large format heat press. When it reaches temperatures in the region of 200º and a pressure between 3 and 4 bars, the ink gassifies and the pigment it contains is seeped into the fibers touching the paper. That’s why fabrics that have been treated/dyed through this process have a white as well as a coloured side.

UNIMPRESSABLE: Those polyester or polyamide fabrics that have undergone a factory immersion dyeing process and that we receive with the solid colours we have chosen. Both sides of the fabric have the same colour.

 

What do the colours/codes on the colour palette mean?

The colours refer to the most popular colour standard in the world, especially in graphic arts. In any case, we insist that they are only a “reference”, because our colours are CMYK (4 inks) and the original standard is one colour or a unique flat ink. 

It is important to bear in mind that the colour we see through the monitor is not the real one, and that is so for two main reasons:

- The colours we see through appliances like monitors or TVs are primary light colours, where the sum of colours is white and black is missing. On the contrary, the CMYK impression (pigment colours) obtains black as the sum of colours, and white is missing. A primary light colour will never be a true reflection of a pigment colour.

- Apart from that, the monitors allow to change the original settings (brightness, contrast, saturation...) so that it’s difficult to know if what we see is the same that will be printed. 

However, and as a general rule, we could say that colours always look clearer and brighter on the monitor than once they are printed.

 

It won’t let me add my configuration to ‘My favourites’ or ‘My designs’...
