Garment printing is a great way to bring your brand and message to life. It can be used to promote a new product, build customer loyalty, and more. But with so many different options available, how do you know which printing method is best for your needs?
The traditional garment printing technique, this method uses a stencil or mesh screen to apply a design to fabric. A squeegee is then used to press ink through the screen, leaving behind the printed image on the garment. The emulsion on the screen is then washed away, and the screen can be reused to create another stencil. The process can be labor-intensive, but it can also be incredibly effective.
Digital Heat Transfer
A more modern printing technique, this option utilizes a computer-driven machine to cut out a design from white transfer paper. The resulting design is then transferred onto a garment using heat, and the result is an excellent way to print on dark fabrics. However, the process is not ideal for light colors or high-density designs.
High Density Printing
High density printing uses a higher mesh count with thicker plastisol inks to give the appearance of Braille on the fabric surface. The technique is more costly than other methods, but it can be a great choice for printing high-density logos and graphics on heavy or dark fabrics. The results are more durable than other methods, as the ink is embedded into the fabric.
