If your logo has bright and vibrant colours then screen printing could be the best choice for you to bring those colours to life. This process is advised for a bigger quantity of garments with the same design. Screen printing uses multi-coloured inks to recreate your logo, which is then applied to the garment through mesh screens. Once we have received your logo, it is then separated into different colours for each screen, after each screen the garment will be put under a lamp then once each colour screen has been applied the garment will go through a drying process to ensure the ink does not wear or wash out. This process is great for a range of different garments from t-shirts to hoodies, this type of logo application works great for big back designs where multiple garments are using the same logo. Screen printing is for orders of 50 or more items.
DTG is a method that sees a printer directly apply ink to the garment. To ensure the highest quality application when applying ink directly to a garment, a specialist printer is required, along with specialist ink which is absorbed by the fibres of the garment. A fixing agent is also applied to the garments before they go into production to help the colour adhere to the garments. Due to this, the garments will often need to be washed before they are worn for the first time to take away the slight smell of the fixing solution. This type of customisation is best for complex logos and multiple colours, typically used for one-off, full colour jobs needed with a fast turn around. This type of print works particularly well with t-shirts and hoodies.
