Because of the diverse printing procedures employed in each process, both approaches produce high-quality designs, but they have significant advantages and disadvantages.
 

Durability
Screen-printed designs do not endure as long as sublimation prints. Screenprints keep up well after several washes, but the raised-ink design will ultimately break or peel away from the cloth. Because the dye bonds well beneath the surface of the cloth, sublimation designs will never break, peel, or fade.
 



Quality
The designs produced by sublimation and screen printing are both high-quality but in distinct ways. Sublimation prints provide vibrant, long-lasting colors that will not fade. This printing technology is also well-known for its ability to produce detailed and multi-colored images quickly.
Fewer colors are used in screenprints to create elevated motifs with a striking, tactile contrast of colors and textures.




Complexity
In most circumstances, sublimation printing allows for more elaborate designs than screenprinting. This is due to the fact that when utilizing the sublimation method, you print a computer image directly onto sublimation paper.
You must first create your stencil for a screen print. Of course, elaborate stencils can be made, but this usually necessitates the creation of a complicated light emulsion that functions similarly to a photo negative. To construct a detailed screen print stencil, you'll need a lot of chemicals, a lot of talent, and a lot of time!
As a result, creating complicated sublimation prints is significantly easier. Before printing, you complete all of the work by developing a high-quality digital image with graphic design software. The printer then takes care of the rest, printing the design directly onto sublimation paper!
 

Cost-Efficiency
Sublimation is more cost-effective when it comes to making custom-ordered t-shirts. Setting up a screen print takes a lot of time and effort, so you'd be wasting a lot of money if you only made one or two shirts. Every time you manufacture a shirt with sublimation printing, you'll have to put in the same amount of effort. Although it isn't a lot of work, it does mean that you can manufacture one shirt for the same price as 10.
