In-House Screen Printing
Screen printing is a technique that involves using a woven mesh screen to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image.
The screen stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials, by pressing through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate (the item that will receive the image).
A squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing ink through the mesh openings to wet the substrate during the squeegee stroke. As the screen rebounds away from the substrate, the ink remains. Basically it is the process of using a mesh-based stencil to apply ink onto a substrate, whether it is t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or other materials.
In-House DTF Printing
DTF is also referred to as Direct Transfer Film, and it works by printing transfers that are heat pressed to a variety of garments (and other substrates). There are many compatible fabrics including cotton, nylon, leather, polyester, and 50/50 blends. This therefore means that this printing method works on a much wider substrate, making it the most versatile digital printing merhod in the market. DTF printing method works on both white and dark garments.
Direct Transfer Film method also combines reliability, unmatched quality and high productivity. DTF printing is preferred by most people because it is affordable and requires no pre-treatment.
This means that the artwork is transferred to an object in a gas state by using a high temperature heat press during the dye sublimation printing process. It differs from traditional printing methods because it bypasses the liquid step. There are no inks drying to the printed object.
The image is first infused onto the source printing paper, leaving little mess and making the whole process quick and easy for dye sublimation printing. Heat is then utilized to transfer the image from the sublimation paper to an object.
Businesses and home designers use this style of printing when creating graphics on clothing, as well as signage, home decorations, company exhibits, and personal items such as coasters, coffee mugs, and keyrings.
Embroidery is essentially defined as a method of adorning fabric with the use of a thread and needle. It is often utilised for personalising polo shirts, jackets, hats, and even bags. Embroidery is one of the most popular options when it comes to creating a logo design. It results in an elegant finished product that generates a 3D appearance on the material.
For most people, embroidered logos are more professional and classier than other methods, even beating more modern techniques, such as digital printing.
With embroidery, your company’s logo will be reproduced by threading directly into the material or fabric. The process where the actual stitching takes place can be performed manually. However, high demand and quick deadlines make automatic stitching using machines more efficient.
