Different Creative Ideas of T-Shirt Printing

T-shirt printing is fun and functional depending on the purpose of the designs. They can be used by different groups to pass a message such as campaigns, sports groups and rallies. There are several methods of printing t shirts and each option has its pros and maybe cons.

Screen printing

This is by far the most common method of t shirt printing in Charlotte. In this case, screens with wire mesh are used to create the designs. The design is drawn on a paper and cut out to form a stencil; different colors require different papers. Alternatively the screen is treated with a chemical that burns an image on to it. The stencil is placed over the t shirt and the screen over the stencil. Ink is poured on the screen using a squeegee in order to imprint the design on the t shirt. This method is simple and cost effective since the screen can be used for a long time.

Digital printing

This method of t shirt printing in Charlotte uses technology to fasten the printing process. It is also known as direct to garment since the image is printed directly to the t shirt. A modified inkjet printer with textile ink is used. Designs are graphically created on a computer then printed on the fabric with the inkjet printer. This method tends to favor brightly colored fabrics that allow designs to be imprinted with the initial design; darker garments require a couple of adjustments and mastery of techniques to bring perfection.

Heat transfer

This category has two options, the traditional method and the modern one, but the end result is more or less the same. In the traditional method an iron box is used to transfer heat. A design is created on a computer. Photos are a favorite of many in this group. The design is then printed on an iron-on-transfer paper. This is a special kind of craft paper that allows the creation of designs with iron boxes. The paper is then placed on the t shirt and a cloth is draped over it. An iron box is then placed over the working area for a recommended period of time to allow heat to reach the paper and t shirt. The paper backing is the removed in order to leave the design behind.

Alternatively, t shirt printing in Charlotte with heat can be done using a specific heat press machine. The design is created on special transfer papers and placed on the t shirt. The heat press machine is then put over the t shirt and held in place for a certain period of time. With the large amount of heat and pressure exerted by the machine, the design is imprinted on the t shirt. This method is fast, easy and allows the use of several colors, shapes and designs.

The Six Different Printing Processes for Printing on T-shirts and other Garments

Revolutionary printing processes for garments have changed the face of the textile industry. From custom designed t shirts to exquisitely printed garments that seem less like a garment and more like a piece of art, the implications of these awesome printing processes are many. It is very interesting to take a deeper look into these t shirt printing processes so that we can better understand which process is best suited for which type of garment. This will ensure that we get the most out of this amazing technology.

The main printing processes for printing on t shirts and other garments can be classified as follows:

1. Screen Printing

2. Heat Press/INKJET/LASER Transfers

3. Heat Press/Plastisol Transfers

4. Vinyl Cutters

5. Direct to Garment

6. Dye Sublimation

Each method has its own pros and cons. This makes it necessary to understand the difference between each method. To emphasize on this point, let us compare the screen printing process with the technique using Vinyl Cutters. The screen printing method involves creating of screens which are pressed up against the cloth. This places the paint onto shirts and there can be only one color per screen. The Vinyl Cutting method uses a machine to cut out designs on special solid vinyl color sheets. Then it uses heat to adhere the already cut vinyl to the garment.

If we look at the pros and cons of each of the above two methods, then we find that screen printing has the advantages like cost effectiveness, quality and durability with cons such as each color requiring a separate screen, sometimes being messy and the need to have large scale printing of a single design in order to be feasible. On the other hand, vinyl cutting has the advantage of having high quality, durability and feasible for small orders. The cons include the implementation of different colors separately and the difficulty in printing of complex designs.

If we consider the latest technology in this field then the name that crops up is Direct to Garment printing, or DTG as it is popularly called. Even though it has been just recently developed, it has been gaining popularity really fast in the t shirt printing industry. The reason for this is surely the fact that DTG has been developed with the aim of overcoming the shortcomings of other printing methods.

As the name suggests, DTG involves the physical printing of the design on to the t shirt using a dedicated inkjet printer. When we observe the printing process, we observe that the t shirt is loaded on a screen just like screen printing. However, DTG has none of the huge set up costs of screen printing and is one step ahead when it comes to printing complex designs.

Perhaps the only drawback of DTG is the requirement of an underbase which makes it a less preferred option when it comes to printing polo tops and other similar t shirts. However, with advantages such as uncomplicated design procedure, feasible small scale printing, greater aesthetic appeal and reduced costs, DTG is here to stay.
