Garment Printing; What’s the best option?

There’s a myriad of garment printing options available and each one has it’s pros & it’s cons. The key is getting the right process for your particular job & requirements. Whether it’s a one-off design or a large volume orders on a variety of garments we aim to give you the best option at our disposal.

there's a lot to consider in garment printing

T-Shirt printing

Screen-printing

Full colour designs can be printed using screen-printing, a very versatile print process. Inks are directly applied to the garments, and this process is suitable for both dark and light coloured fabrics. This process is very economical for larger quantities of fifty or more garments, rather than small runs, due to the high set up costs involved. We screen print in house.

Direct to garment printing (DTG)

Direct to garment printing also involves using full colour prints directly on to the garment, and it is also suitable for light and dark coloured garments. The process is similar to screen printing, but DTG printing can allow for just one print of a design. This process is somewhat more expensive but one-off prints are more economical as a result of lower set-up costs. We DTG print in house on white & light coloured garments (colour restrictions apply) which is a fantastic way to get short runs & personalised one off garments produced.

Transfer printing

Transfer printing involves applying ink to a transfer before then applying it to the garment. This process accommodates one-off print runs and is available for coloured garments. Transfer printing is highly advantageous for full colour one-off prints and small batches on to dark garments, the only downside being a ‘patch’ style print. We produce transfers in house.

Transfer printing (white)

Again full colour designs are transferred to transfer sheets that are then applied to the garment. This process is different to standard transfer printing, and is suitable for white, and natural cotton coloured garments. The ‘patch style’ print for lighter garments is much lighter weight than the one required for the coloured ones. The only side-effect of using this process is that the white areas within the design are prone to darkening over time. With the installation of our DTG option this process is a lot less relevant than previous.

Transfer Vinyl printing

In transfer vinyl printing a single colour vinyl is precisely cut to the desired shape or font and then heat-sealed to the garment. Heat-sealing is suitable for most fabrics. Transfer vinyl printing is great for party tops and high-visibility work wear. The advantages of transfer vinyl printing are that it is a durable and hard-wearing form of customising a garment, as well as being very economical.

Designs

What comes out of the print process can never be better than what is put in…….. If your design isn’t up to the job you’re sure to notice it on the garment. Luckily we have tens of thousands of stock designs to choose from on our website. If you have your own design that can be used no problem at all, The best solution is a vectorised, print-ready format with a transparent background & minimum of 200 dpi resolution.

If you download artwork from the internet please be aware of possible copyright infringements. If we can see an obvious, or possible, infringement we’ll point it out to you and won’t produce anything we know to be legally dubious. Any design that is supplied by yourself is produced in the belief that you have the rights to have that image reproduced.

Costs can vary depending on the colours and size of the print design, garment quantity & colour. We can advise you on the best process for your requirements.
