There are several ways to print clothing. The most common way is through heat transfer printing, which uses a heat press to attach the sheet to the garment. Heat transfer printing produces a long-lasting design, but it can be time-consuming. Here are a few tips to make your clothes printing process go smoothly. Once you have all the necessary supplies, you can start printing. Once the design is ready, follow the instructions on the heat transfer printing machine.
Vibrance is a measure of color saturation and brightness. DTG printing has made great advances in recent years, but the appearance is still somewhat dull compared to screen printing. Screen printing stands out because the design pops off the shirt, while DTG is less recognizable – its print is a dull white instead of a shiny, glossy one. Traditional screen printing is done with Plastisol ink, a PVC-based plasticizing emulsion. The ink is very opaque, creating a bright white underbase on dark garments.
While screen printing has a long history, it has made great strides in quality and efficiency over the past few years. However, manual screen printers still need to print each shirt by hand. Moreover, it is better for single-color prints on dark fabrics. The color fidelity and accuracy of screen printing can also be better than with other methods. In addition, it can be more economical than screen printing. These methods are a great choice for businesses that produce large quantities of printed clothing.
