According to the different colors contained in the logo, it needs to make a unique screen for each color. And it needs to print the screens one by one. So after layer-by-layer printing, the full patterns printing will be finished. So the main cost of screen printing is the making of the screens. Since one color requires one screen, the more colors the logo has, the higher the printing cost will be required.

2. What is Heat transfer printing?

This is a common digital printing method. The logo is first printed on transfer paper through professional computer printing equipment, and then the pattern on the transfer paper is transferred to the T-shirt through a hot stamping machine.

3. What is Sublimation printing?

This is another digital printing method, mainly used on T-shirts made of polyester. Generally, the pattern is integrated into the fabric through a drum-type sublimation machine. Therefore, when you touch the pattern of Sublimation printing with your hand, there will be no gelatinous feeling. It feels like it is touching the T-shirt fabric directly and feels good. This is different feeling from the patterns of heat transfer printing. Sublimation printing is usually to make all over printing t-shirts.

4. What is Direct to garment printing?

Usually says DTG, this is a more expensive printing method. The ink is sprayed directly onto the T-shirt through direct injection equipment. The pattern and fabric are well integrated, so the hand feel is better. The printed pattern effect can also be restored to a high degree. It can also create some complex patterns that are difficult to complete with screen printing and heat transfer printing, such as gradient colors or fog dot patterns. The printing quality of direct to garment printing is much better than that of Sublimation printing, but because it is more expensive, it is generally used on T-shirts that require high-quality printing.
