Screen-Printing

Screen printing is the most common method of textile printing. A tried &
tested process that gives accurate, consistent and long lasting prints.
Screen printing is not ideal for small quantities and print cost gets significantly cheaper as
quantity goes up.
Requires a physical screen set up per colour for printing.

Notes

Best colour reproduction
Longest lasting print
Cheapest method for quantity
Variety of effects & ink options
Not suitable for short runs
Can be printed on almost all fabric types

Textile vinyl is a heat transferred, computer cut vinyl that can also be printed digitally. Textile
vinyl is an excellent method of creating personalised garments quickly, easily & cost effectively
with no set up costs.
Textile vinyl is the method used for all Year 12 personalised jerseys. This method can do
individual names & numbers very cost effectively.
Not as long lasting as screen printing as it is an indirect (transfer) process. Not prone to fading
but after a long period of use the transfers can crack or peel.
This is a professional process, not an ‘iron on’ transfer as can be achieved at home.

Notes

Either digitally printed vinyl or cut & press vinyl
Excellent colour reproduction
High sheen, almost glossy decoration method
Can be applied to most fabric types (Polyester, cotton, viscose, modal etc.)
Inexpensive method for small to medium runs
Great for numbers & individual names
Digital process, full colour same pricing as single colour
Excellent for corporate clients
Small details will need to be put onto a background, not weeded. (See sample)
Vinyl print, not ideal for areas of large fill as print does not breathe
Indirect printing method, printed onto vinyl and transferred to garment
Cut & press vinyl has a wide range of stock colours, finishes etc.
Including flock, perforated, metallic and many more

Direct to Garment (DTG) Digital

Direct to Garment digital printing uses a large format inkjet printer specifically designed for the
textile industry. Water base dink is printed digitally directly onto textiles.
DTG is an excellent process where customers have small runs or individualised t-shirts & want
a photographic image with a really soft feel.
Printing onto black requires white underbase and is therefore more expensive.
Not as hard wearing as screen printing and is not usually recommended for workwear.

Notes

Newest garment printing technology
Most environmentally friendly method of printing
Soft feel printing
Colourfast
Dark garments require pre treat and white underbase and are more expensive
300 - 1440 dpi print quality
Physically slow printing, for large runs allow time for delivery
Perfect for runs between 1 - 50
Not ideal if very accurate PMS colours are required
