Garment printing has been around for a long time in many different guises. Some of us wear t-shirts printed with branded logos or obscure pictures. It’s a fun way of jazzing up a boring t-shirt. But more and more businesses are recognising the value of printed garments. Take the security industry as an example. Security businesses across the country have always used garment printing to convey a clear identity of both their presence and their company image. Garment printing is the best way for fast brand recognition if you have lots of staff working outside and exposed to the community.
Charities have also used printed t-shirts to promote their presence in a community, including running marathon events for charity.
High-quality printed garments
Not all printed garments are equally made. If you are deciding to purchase printed garments, choose a reputable t-shirt and clothing printing company to complete your order. Renowned clothing printers have invested in state-of-the-art cloth printing equipment that will provide crisp and clear images regardless of the complexity of the picture.
Screen printing of t-shirts has been around for the longest time and when done correctly can produce very nice results. But today technology has advanced, and there are many other options for providing clean and clear looking prints. Most reputable garment printers also offer an embroidery service that produces a real professional appearance to any garment. You will be surprised at how little these services cost when you ask your garment printer for a quote.
What type of printing is available from a reputable garment printer?
There are many options to choose from and depending on the use of the garment. The printer will give you the best advice on what method of printing to choose.
- Screen printing. This option suits many people and what’s cool about screen printing is that you can have an eco-friendly non-polluting mix of colours added to the printing process which will protect the environment when the garment is no longer needed.
- Direct garment printing. This is the perfect choice for producing precise digital images on any garment. It’s fast and gives incredible clarity to any image regardless of background colour.
- Dye sublimation. The printer lays the image on a special paper and transfers the image using heat on to the garment. The images are crisp and durable and are perfect for fashion or work wear.
- Transfer printing. It is how it sounds! The printer lays the design on to a transfer and applies the design using heat. This technique is perfect on any colour background and is the number one choice for low volume orders.
Do I need to buy a lot of shirts to have them printed?
No, the garment printer will be happy to provide garment printing for one-offs and will select the best process for your material and image transfer.
Garment printing is within reach of all of us and is a fun way to put a little zing into our clothing regardless of the time of year and weather conditions.
