What are silk screen-printed T-shirts, exactly?

To understand this, we must first examine the history of the T-shirt. While T-shirts are a relatively new idea, screen printing has been utilized in China and other Asian countries since the 900s AD. It is one of the most well-known print techniques due to its antiquity. T-shirt silk screen printing is a simple operation. It works by pushing ink through a mesh surface to apply your design on an item (the screen). Because of the versatility of the procedure, it is not limited to garments. In fact, screen printing on T-shirts in Singapore didn’t become widespread until Disney began using technology to apply its renowned cartoon characters to clothes, which was then sold as a product. The technique is a little more sophisticated today, thanks to automated machinery and modern technology, but the fundamental principles remain the same. Unlike DTG, ink is printed onto the fabric rather than inside it, resulting in a slightly raised finish and a texturised feel to screen printing. As a result, it is often utilized for branded logo T-shirts available in retail shops, band T-shirts, and conventional university hoodies and souvenirs. Don’t worry if you’re not sure whether screen printing is right for you; our knowledgeable team will always help you in identifying the best technique for your order.

Our firm was founded on sustainability from the beginning, with a dedication to sustainable screen printing and organic ingredients weaved into our DNA. We use some of the most modern screen printing technologies available, guaranteeing little waste and maximum production efficiency. This also contributes to the high quality of all of our screen prints. When it comes to inks, we make sure that our screen printing is as environmentally safe as possible. We have numerous possibilities, however for our screen printed shirts, we utilize plastisol inks as a standard. As eco-friendly screen printing experts, we choose plastisol inks because they produce significantly less waste and use far less energy than water-based inks. However, if you have a choice, we may provide both alternatives. Many low-cost solvent-based inks include environmentally hazardous chemicals and endocrine disruptors (phthalates). When you purchase screen printed apparel from us, you can be certain that our inks are Phthalate-free. When screen printing T-shirts or other textiles, we always prefer 100% Phthalate-free plastisol inks over water-based and special inks for environmental and ecological reasons.

Screen printing and digital transfer printing have one thing in common: they both generate strong, colorful prints with a wide range of colors. They are, nevertheless, employed in a variety of contexts.

Because of the economies of scale that may deliver considerable cost reductions, screen printing is appropriate for bigger, bulk orders. Transfer printing, on the other hand, is best suited for smaller quantities.

While iron on transfers and digital transfers are both identical in nature, their applications and advantages are vastly different. Iron on transfers may be made at home to embellish goods on a small scale for a minimal cost. When used on clothing, iron on transfers often only last 4-5 washes, while digital transfers employ industrial heat presses to adhere the transfer to the fabric, giving the transfer the same lifetime as the garment itself.
