Different T-Shirt Printing Types

Screen Printing

Screen printing is perhaps the most popular as it is also the cheapest way to transfer an image to a shirt. One only needs a mesh screen, fabric ink, a squeegee and a basic cotton shirt. The screen is coated with a special material that hardens when exposed to the light. When the material is removed, the image is embedded in the screen. The screen is then placed on top of the t-shirt where fabric ink is added. The ink is then pressed out of the design with a squeegee. Once the ink hardens, the screen is removed and the outline of the image is clearly seen on the t-shirt. One benefit of using this method is that the mesh screen is re-usable and one can make use of the design repeatedly. That said, using this method is slow as one has to do the process of transferring individually.

Vinyl T-Shirt Printing

Vinyl t-shirt printing differs from screen printing or embroidery options. With this particular choice the design is printed onto a vinyl sheet, which is then cut to size and stuck to the t-shirt. With screen printing the design is printed directly onto the garment, while with embroidery it is stitched into place.

Vinyl t-shirt printing is an affordable option for lower volume orders and offers a high quality finish that is durable and long lasting.
