Clothes printing is a great way to advertise a business, event, charity fundraiser, or just show some love for your favorite shirt. However, there are several things to keep in mind before you start printing your own clothes. For one, most methods require specialized equipment and supplies. These can range from a huge inventory of unique dyes, rollers and squeegees for screen printing to a roll of HTV vinyl and scissors for the easiest at-home designs. Additionally, some printing methods work better on specific fabric types, such as polyester versus cotton. Finally, some methods take more time to set up than others, like screen printing and processes that layer colors one at a time.

Heat transfer printing is a simple and affordable method that can be done by most people at home. This technique involves printing a design on transfer paper, which is then applied to the fabric using a heat press. The result is a durable and high-quality print on a t-shirt.

Another popular option is screen printing, which can be done by hand or with a printer. It’s an excellent choice for producing shirts in bulk because it allows multiple copies of the same design to be produced simultaneously. It’s also a great choice for artistic projects because it allows for many colors and complex graphics, and is particularly well-suited for photo prints.
