You can do so much with simple Traditional Screen Printing.

You can do so much with simple Traditional Screen Printing.

The traditional way to decorate a T-Shirt, Screen Printing is done one color at a time, with a separate screen being made for each color portion of the design, and then, each color printed one at a time.

Colors can be PMS (Pantone Matching System) matched, and, we can also do metallic ink and special effects, like glitter and discharge, where we literally bleach the color out of the shirt, leaving the original shirt color to show the design. With most screen printing, you can feel screen printing on a garment, and, if a large design with lots of colors is done, the feel can be quite heavy and thick.

Vector art is required for screen printing, so each color can be separated from the design. While this is the easily the most cost-effective way to print larger quantities, it is more expensive to print smaller quantities, or, designs with a lot of colors. Minimum quantity is 24 pieces, with prices dropping significantly with higher quantities.

The great thing with Digital Printing is that it can be done with as few as one piece, and, it is pretty much a 'what-you-see-is-what-you-get' print method, being able to print for high-resolution JPG files and other formats.

Compared to the setup involved with screen printing, where each color is done separately, with digital printing, it is all done digitally, there are no costly screen setups, making single-piece and small orders possible and affordable. And unlike traditional screen printing, where you pay per color, digital printing has the ability to print the full spectrum of colors, although exact color matching is not possible.

This technology is really amazing when you’re printing designs with photos, gradients, or designs that are rich in color and detail. And, there is virtually no feel or weight to the print.

Multi-Color Foil makes this shirt shine

Multi-Color Foil makes this shirt shine

Want your print to shine?  This can be done utilizing our digital printing system, combined with shiny foil.  We have silver and gold, as well as a multi-color option.

Use for text, logos, or both, and have something really unique with a one piece minimum.

This method will really make your image stand out.  Wears well and washes well, with no weight or feel to the design.

Want a little bling in your design? Rhinestones or rhinestuds will do the trick, and make your design sparkle like nothing else.

We use Lead Free Korean Rhinestones and Rhinestuds with Commercial grade glue. We do not use stones and studs made in China because there are too many inconsistencies in shape and size plus they do not use strong glue.

You will definitely feel the rhinestones or rhinestuds on a garment, as they are literally attached to the garment. With rhinestones or rhinestuds, we can do lettering or designs with a 12 piece minimum.

This shirt is a great example of Sublimation.

Sublimation printing is a versatile, digital printing method that opens up a world of opportunities to any consumer of decorated goods.

So, what is sublimation? Well, simply put, sublimation is a process by which sublimation dyes are printed onto a transfer medium with a specially prepared inkjet printer. Thereafter, those dyes are then transferred from the medium to an object or garment under the heat and pressure delivered by a commercial heat press.

Sublimation only works on garments made of polyester. When the heat and pressure are applied, the dye on the transfer medium sublimates, or becomes a gas, and is then absorbed into the polyester itself; the print is actually a part of the garment/coating. It doesn’t fade, wears, or have any texture or weight.

We can sublimate part of a shirt or an entire shirt. Minimums vary depending on the project.
