Clothing printing is the process of designing and then printing a shirt or other garment. There are several different methods that can be used, and all have their pros and cons. Each method is suited to certain types of fabrics and shirts, so it is important to choose one that works best for you.
Direct-to-Garment Printing (DTG)
DTG is a fast and inexpensive way to print high-quality images directly on t-shirts. It uses a digital printer to spray water-based inks onto the garment, most frequently after a pre-treatment.
Also known as silkscreen printing, this method is a popular choice for professionals. It offers very good design replication and is a great option for many t-shirt designs.
Heat Transfer Printing
This is another simple and quick printing process. It is a great option for one-off t-shirt prints and small batches.
It requires a variety of t-shirt printing supplies, but can be a cost-effective way to get customized shirts for your business. It is a good choice for t-shirts that are not very thick, such as polyester.
This printing method is a bit more expensive than other options but it produces very high-quality results that last a long time. It has a very soft touch and is a great option for all-over t-shirt designs.
CAD Cut Vinyl
CAD cut vinyl is a good option for plain letterings, logos and shapes. The design is created in a computer program and cut by a machine to make the transfer print. Then, the transfer is sealed onto the shirt using a heat press.
