Direct To Fabric Printing is an attractive and effective way to print designs onto your clothes. This method is ideal for printing fabrics such as silk, cotton and polyester.
The advantages of direct to garment printing are that it is cost-effective, long-lasting and versatile. It is especially well-suited for small, limited-run batches.
Direct to garment printing involves spraying ink directly on the fabric. It can work on light and dark garments. In addition to being cost-effective, this process offers a wide range of colors.
Screen printing is another way to create a design on your clothes. Although it is labor-intensive, it is highly effective and attractive.
However, this method of clothing printing is not suitable for dark-colored garments. Also, the print can fade with multiple washes. Using screen printing is not recommended for shirts that are frequently worn.
For more complex and elaborate designs, heat transfer printing is a good option. Instead of using separate colors, it transfers an image using a wax-based ink.
Vinyl printing is another option for customizing your garments. Unlike screen printing, the wax-based ink will adhere to the surface of the fabric, creating a waterproof image.
Discharge printing is another technique that can be used to print on your clothes. It is the least expensive and most effective of the three methods.
The other two methods require two independent steps to create the desired effect. First, the ink must be pre-treated. Typically, costs are 20 to 40 dollars per print.
