Transfer printing, is the process of applying heat-applied materials to
various items with a heat press. Heat-applied materials contain a
heat-sensitive adhesive on one side; when heat is applied by a heat
press to the material, the material adheres to the substrate to which it
is being applied. The end result is a decorated garment.
Logo embroidery is used most often for apparel that will be used for uniforms or promotions.
Direct to Garment printing (DTG)
to garment printing is a process by which garments are printed directly
from a computer using advanced inkjet technology. While the inks and
hardware are different than a desktop printer, the method of printing
from a PC is very similar. After adding all the colours and finishing
the design, a heat press cures the ink.
main advantage to screen printing is the unique visual result it
creates. The inks used are very durable, the colours are extremely
vivid, making this a unique printing technique. It is possible to
screen print on a large variety of products with little or no limitation
on the thickness and composition of the material being printed on.
The end result of the sublimation process is a high resolution, full colour print. Because the dyes are infused into the substrate at the molecular level, rather than applied at a topical level (such as with screen printing and direct to garment printing), the prints will not crack, fade or peel from the garment under normal conditions.
