DTG Printing or Direct To Garment printing is a print process that produces incredibly high-quality artwork onto garments that will stand the test of time. Think of a paper printer, but on a larger scale. The tshirt mimics the paper. DTG printers operate very similar to that of an inkjet printer but use water based ink to print directly onto the fabric. Because of this specific type of ink, the best type of garment suitable for DTG Printing is 100% cotton . There is no colour limit for direct to garment printing so for 1 set price, you can print vibrant photo quality prints that wont peel or crack over time.
Embroidery is one of the oldest forms of decorating apparel where a design or logo is stitched into the garment either by hand or by a machine. Here at Think Embroidery & Print, our team has the ability of mass producing large volumes of embroidered garments at very high speed. Embroidery is the most common branding process for corporate and work wear as it has a more professional finish and the garments are more suited for an embroidered logo. It is virtually the only branding process that suits almost all garments and materials.
Screen printing, also known as silkscreen printing, is a print process where a logo or design is printed using ink that is squeegeed through mesh directly onto the garment. The logo is printed onto film and exposed onto a screen first. Each colour of the design is allocated an individual screen - ie a 4 colour logo will have 4 indiviual screens. Screen printing is primarily used to print onto garments, tote bags, paper gift bags and even old school posters!
