What are the methods of custom t shirts printing
Custom T Shirt Printing
Before entering college, I bet you already crossed paths with someone on the street who was wearing a T-shirt from that course you wanted so badly to get into. You were dating her, right? Or maybe you just want to have a custom t-shirt to call her own. Let’s learn a little about the methods we use to customize a piece of clothing in Dallas, its advantages and disadvantages. Who knows, maybe you’ll be able to make the choice you need when purchasing your custom t-shirt!
Types of Personalization
Remember when your mother used to embroider fabric on your jeans for those June parties? It’s a similar principle, although we do custom embroidery in Dallas using much more sophisticated and professional machines. The personalized computer embroidery process requires the production of an art matrix program or logo that will be applied to the item, and from this matrix program the machine applies/embroidered the piece.
It is an interesting method because it allows great freedom in choosing the art and can be done in most fabrics. Several companies use their uniforms with embroidered polo shirts, because in addition to adding value, it provides total loyalty in the reproduction of the brand or logo. This type of personalization also allows you to add threads of several different colors, such as silver, gold or metallic thread. It is also possible to add differentiated meshes in the appliqué embroidery, such as a sweatshirt or printed, floral, camouflaged, etc.
The main types of embroidery are:
• Full application;
• Double application;
• Application with contour;
• Application with internal topstitching;
• Full embroidery.
Computerized embroidery adds value and sophistication to the pieces. Some embroidery styles, such as appliqués, are inspired by famous brands such as Hollister, GAP, among others. A quality application can increase the degree of elegance and good taste of your piece. You can work more than one type of embroidery on your logo/art, just use your creativity and imagination and your piece will undoubtedly be exclusive. Below are some photos of “married” embroidery using more than one technique.
Possibly the most common technique used in speciality shops and businesses to print designs onto a variety of products (not just t-shirts). To color the prints, the technique uses a matrix screen corresponding to the desired color. This technique is excellent for the production of large quantities of t-shirts, especially in 100% cotton knits , being the choice of several college or high school classes in the production of their pieces!
• Cost-effective, especially in large quantities;
• Very accessible process;
• T-shirts will have good durability in their print, allowing prolonged use.
• Because it is a suitable method for medium and large scale, small orders of Silk Screen prints end up not being financially worthwhile;
• Difficulty printing with a wide variety of colors.
This method uses sublimatic ink for printing on paper, after which it is transferred to the T-shirt through a press. The appearance of this method is quite different, as if the entire piece had been painted. However, not every material can be sublimated, and it is recommended that you use pieces of synthetic fabric or polyester, for example.
• Process used in a wide variety of personalized t-shirts, such as soccer team t-shirts. It is also useful in abadás, for example;
• Great wealth of details;
• Cost does not depend so much on the quantity of products.
• Need for specific tissues to apply the technique;
• Applied only on white base mesh;
• Difficulty in using dark colored fabrics;
