Clothes printing is a popular method of creating t-shirts that are unique and stylish. It can also help you attract new customers and promote your business.
Printing methods for clothes vary in cost and complexity, so it is important to know your options before you start designing. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a printing method for your apparel:
Design (theme and message): With screen printing, you can create a custom design that represents your brand or tells your story. There are many ways to customize a design, from adding a logo to making it an illustration or a combination of both.
Special effects: Some printing methods can add texture, shine or sparkles to your design. These techniques include expanded ink, flocking and foil.
Heat transfer: This is another popular and simple method of printing your designs on shirts. It involves printing a digital design on some type of transfer sheet and then using a heat press to seal the transfer onto the shirt.
The advantages of this method are that you can have your designs printed in a variety of colors and sizes. The disadvantages are that it requires a lot of set-up time and the transfer may crack or fade later on.
Direct to garment: This is a newer method that uses the same inkjet technology as paper printers, but applies it directly to the fabric of your t-shirt. The result is high quality, accurate color and a soft feel to the t-shirt.
