How t-shirt printing works

December 20, 2012 · Print This Article

If you have ever wanted to have customised t-shirts printed in Cape Town, you may be wondering how the process works. There are a variety of techniques that are used in modern printing today – here are a few of them.

Screen printing

This is one of the most popular methods of printing today, because it is so versatile. This method takes an image and literally transforms that image onto a t-shirt with a screen that is imprinted onto the item. The great thing about screen printing is that it can be used on a variety of different fabrics and you can have a full image on the t-shirt should you want to. Screen printing remains an attractive choice, because it is so durable and affordable. It also offers a variety of ways that you can print, so that you are not limited at all. The only downside is that the required printing quanitities tend to be higher.

Digital printing

This is a relatively new method in t-shirt printing. This is where the t-shirt is printed on in much the same way that your printer works at home. This is best used on smaller orders, and it is a cost effective method to use.

Embroidery

This is another method of printing onto t-shirts, where the image is embroidered, or stitched into, the fabric. This is usually done by hand. This is good for small orders and also for smaller artwork. With larger artwork, it can make the t-shirt seem heavy by all the cotton that needs to be sowed into it.
