How is a t-shirts printed?
There are a few different ways to print t-shirts, the traditional method is screen printing. Screen printing means creating a stencil of your design and then using that stencil to apply ink to the sweater.
It is a fairly simple process, but it is also demanding in set-up and preparation as each stent is made on a template which in turn must be made individual for each color in the subject, which is why screen printing is better suited for larger orders Where you print many of the same motifs.
The screen printing method is adapted for less complex motives and images, which means that there are restrictions on how much information can be printed on a sweater. DTG-printing has no such restriction and can
Screen printing vs DTG printing
At Dropmerch we use a newer version of technology but the same quality as screen print called Direct to Garment (DTG) print. DTG printing uses special industrial printers to print your design directly on the sweater. This gives us much more flexibility when it comes to design complexity and color choices. In addition, it allows us to print your sweaters much faster than traditional screen printing methods and without minimum number.
DTG pressure also has the advantage that it is possible to print less motifs on the sweater, which makes it perfect for unique or personal designs. If you would like help designing your motive, don't hesitate to contact us. We have designer who works in different styles and we are always prepared to help you with your idea.
Benefits of DTG
Directly to print, also known as DTG printing, is a process for pressing textiles with the help of environmentally friendly and water-based inkjet technology. The writing head prints ink directly on the garment in the desired design. This method was introduced in the late 1990s and has become increasingly popular because of its ability to quickly and easily produce high quality prints.
DTG printing is most often used for t-shirts, but can also be used on other garments such as hood sweaters, linen and more. The process begins with a digital file of the design created either by the customer or by our team of designers. Once the file has been created, it is sent to the printer where it is printed out on the garment.
The advantages of DTG printing include the ability to print complex designs, full color prints and small quantities. This makes DTG printing the perfect option for companies or private individuals who want to create customized T-shirts without having to order a large amount.
Prepare your pressure file
Once you have chosen T-shirt, you must have a file for printing. This means creating a high -resolution picture of the design, which can be done in Photoshop or Illustrator. The image should be at least 300 DPI and saved as a PDF or EPS file.
To choose the correct size of your tshirt
When pressing t-shirts, it is important that you choose the right size of the sweater. We have a large selection of different sizes, from S to 5XL. If you are unsure of which size suits you best, we recommend that you take your dimensions and compare with our T-shirt sizes table that you find on each product as different manufacturers have different sizes.
Once you have decided on the design, you must choose the right sweater. The type of sweater you choose depends on the design, as well as your personal preferences. DTG print works best on 100 % cotton sweaters, but you can also press t-shirts made from a mixture of cotton and polyester.
