Information

There are certainly more options open to you now than ever before if you want to start a new garment printing company or replace your existing T-shirt printing technology.

Cost is, of course, a factor, but print buyers and customers have a number of other requirements. Minimum order quantities, print quality, delivery speed, and personalization are all factors that influence your purchasing choices. It's critical to consider the distinctions, benefits, and drawbacks of each garment printing technology before deciding which is best for you.

Direct to garment (DTG)

DTG printing uses specially crafted inkjet printers to print water-based pigment inks directly onto cotton and cotton/polyester garments and fabrics. These presses are usually small footprint, low learning curves and inexpensive ROIs, like the Ricoh Ri 100 and Ri 1000, making it suitable for start-ups or companies growing into T-shirts, shirts and tote bags. White, which can be printed as a base to remove show-through and render graphics on dark-colored garments as colorful as on white tees, is one of the eco-friendly inks that can be used. The color range of DTG is limited however, and only cottons and polycotton blends are printable, because special inks and colors of the Pantone Matching System are not supported.

 

Dye sublimation

Dye Sublimation is a digital technology which provides excellent clothing personalization options on polyester even throughout a clothing. This process involves printing a picture onto the paper using a sublimation printer, which is then heat and pressure transferred to the garment. A specialist colouring solution is needed, but these machines normally have a small footprint and low initial cost of installation. The colors are printed with a soft finish in precise registration, but restrictions are present. The only compatible material is white polyester and neither black nor white inks can be printed. 

 

Heat transfer

This technology involves the use of a laser or inkjet printer to print an image onto specialized paper and transfers it to the garment by heat, as the name implies. This makes printing t-shirts and other clothing easy and affordable, because many standard desktop printers print out their original design – personalized to order. As with dye sub, however, the images must be reverse printed and trimmed to make the process fiddly. To achieve the best results, a specialized paper or alternative techniques should also be used to apply a white base layer on dark clothing. 
 

Vnyl

Simple designs – letters, numbers, logos– are cut from a special vinyl material using a cutting machine or plotter for this decorative process and then transferred using the heat press to the T-shirt. This heat tranfer vinyl comes in a wide range of colors and effects, including metallic, reflective, and flock, and can be used on a variety of fabrics in any color. As a result, heat transfer vinyl printing is a cost-effective and efficient way to print one- and two-color messages on a variety of garments and items. Weak washability and rigid texture, major design limitations, and lack of suitability for long production runs are all disadvantages.
 

 

Screen printing

Screen printing is an industrial print process, predominantly used for long print runs. Inks are pressed through a mesh screen or stencil onto the garment with a blade or squeegee, with each colour requiring a separate screen which must be aligned accurately to ensure good registration. It's possible to achieve some incredible designs on a wide range of materials, thanks to PMS colours and speciality inks, and the finish is washable and durable.
