There are a lot of different T-shirt Printing methods to choose from. Some you may prefer over others. Today we will get into the Pros and Cons and figure out which method you should be using for your custom apparel and merchandise.
Screen printing is one of the most popular and durable ways to print t-shirts and other garments. It is used to print everything from t-shirts, caps, shoes, jackets pants and so much more. It is also one of the oldest ways to print t-shirts. This method is tried and tested.
DTG printing is still fairly new when compared to Screen printing but over the years there has been major improvement in the method, speed, and quality. It is one of the easiest ways to get a couple of shirts with photos printed on them. The machine is basically an inkjet printer that is used for printing apparel. The inks are specifically made for printing on garments. Different than what you will find in your normal home office inkjet printer which uses a dye.
Have you ever seen a t-shirt that has an all-over print? From seam to seam. The design starts from the top to the bottom. Well, it was most likely done with the Sublimation Printing Method.
Vinyl printing is an awesome way to get one-color prints onto a sports jersey but it's also great for t-shirt printing.
If you want a couple of shirts with photos on them then I would recommend that you use the DTG Printing method. If you want a shirt with printing all over the t-shirt from seam to seam then I would encourage you to use sublimation printing. The main difference between the two will be the price. Sublimation printing will cost more and the polyester shirt that you will be using will also cost more than DTG printing and cotton t-shirts.
If you need names and numbers on sports apparel such as Jerseys then I will recommend that you use the Vinyl printing method. Although all these different methods will work for printing names and numbers on the back of Jerseys. It will Come down to Price and ease.
If you want to sell merchandise and want to get great quality prints at an affordable price then screen printing may be the best method for you. You can get the cheapest price by Screen printing a large order of shirts. Especially if your design is simple and one color.
