Clothing printing is an art that uses screen printing to imprint designs onto clothes. The method typically involves a stencil and mesh, which is usually made of synthetic materials. The stencil must be pre-processed in order to create a clean area to print on. Then, ink is spread over the stencil with a squeegee. Excess ink is then removed with a rag. Then, the screen is ready to be used again.
After the design has been created, the clothes need to be cured to set the print. Embroidering creates a 3-D effect on a garment by incorporating thread. Embroidery is often used for workwear because it is durable and doesn’t fade even after a few washings. In addition, this method is suitable for clothing that will be washed a lot. Unlike other types of clothing printing, embroidered clothes are a great way to advertise a business.
Screen printing uses a hand-operated machine to print a single design onto a shirt. A high-quality printer can print detailed designs on clothing. However, a low-cost model can still be too expensive for the average consumer. To get the best quality prints, you need to invest in a high-end DTG printer. But, be aware that this type of machine doesn’t produce high-resolution images, so it is best to invest in a more expensive one for home use.
