The best way of printing onto cotton clothing is screen printing.
Screen printing is the traditional printing method for t-shirts. It is ideal for large designs and is the best technique of choice for t-shirt printing because of the quality it produces.
When you buy a printed tee in a high-street shop, this has most likely been screen printed.
Screen printing process:
The first step is artwork. The artwork should be generated in the following formats: .PDF at 300dpi or .AI some .JPEG images may work it all depends on the resolution of the art. Once we have the artwork, it gets sent to our art department for color separation and editing.
The design is broken down into individual colours - vector artwork is taken from Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw and printed out on a film type paper or vellum. Separate screen is made for each colour. Ink is forced through the screen on to the garment, one screen after the other until the design is complete. The garment is then put through a high temperature conveyor drier to cure the ink.
When screen printing, one colour at a time is applied and therefore the cost will increase with each additional colour applied. Likewise a separate screen is required for each colour, and hence, screen charges may be uneconomical if only a small quantity of clothing is required.
