General knowledge about the use of programs is not enough to properly transfer the pattern to the material. Already at the first contact with the printing house you will be overwhelmed with a lot of questions related to printing technology. There are several basic methods of clothing marking – screen printing, thermal transfer, sublimation, digital printing (DTG)  กางเกง holdem  If you want to save on any additional payment for adapting your design, use our tips

The choice of printing technique on a T-shirt

The marking method is selected on the basis of several guidelines. An employee of the printing house where you will carry out the order will ask for it. Be prepared to specify:

Material of clothing (e.g. polyester, cotton) and type of shirts (e.g. polo, long-sleeve) on which you want to create prints. This is a very important question, because not all techniques can be implemented, e.g. on cotton.

 Colors of ordered clothes.

Outlays (it is good to immediately determine how many t-shirts you will need. Some techniques, กางเกง holdem e.g. screen printing, are cost-effective at larger volumes, while others, e.g. DTG, are recommended for individual pieces).

When you have gathered this information, the question comes back, which type of marking should you choose?

I will describe some of the most popular printing techniques. I will start with low-circulation ones. With this combination you should find out which technique to use and how to prepare the project. Thermal transfer (i.e. the method of applying flex and flock foil) allows printing on cotton and polyester (e.g. sports) clothing in any color .

When combining polyester clothing and flex foil, remember to use a special foil with a blocker. Although it is more expensive than traditional material, it prevents the foil color from mixing with the color of the garment (so-called dye migration).
