Q. What is Direct to Garment Printing?
Answer: DTG printing is the process of printing images directly onto fabrics and garments, such as t-shirts. It employs the use of textile inkjet technology to print your desired image onto the garment. It’s useful to imagine it as a giant inkjet printer, but instead of papers and documents, it prints designs on fabric. Use DTG printing for vibrant full colour prints which do not crack or peel.
Q. Why did you choose the printing method?
Answer: At Garment Printing, we have dedicated garment printing specialists with years of expertise. If customers have not specified their preferred printing method, our printing specialists will decide upon the optimum technique to be used, based upon the garment and design specifications.
Q. What is Screen Printing?
Answer: Screen printing is one of the most popular and cost-effective ways of garment printing. In screen printing, positive films are printed for each colour and are adhered to separate screens. The screens are then exposed to UV light to burn the artwork into an emulsion. After the exposure, the film is removed, and screens rinsed with water to wash away the emulsion. Following this, the screens are locked in place on a carousel and the colours are applied to the image one at a time to create your final print.
Q. What is Dye Sublimation Printing?
Answer: In dye sublimation, the dye is heated until it transforms into a gas. It then diffuses into the fibres of the material themselves, and solidifies, embedding the print image onto the fabric. Dye sublimation printing is cost-effective since there are no major set up costs, no minimum order restrictions and durable.
Q. What is vinyl transfer printing?
Answer: In CAD Cut Vinyl Heat Transfers, a machine cuts out shapes and letters out of sheets of self-adhesive plastic or vinyl and then transferred onto fabrics or garments. Your design is manually weeded by our team and is prepped for pressing. “Weeding” is the process of removing parts of the transfer that are unnecessary in order to remove the negative space from your design. An industrial heat press is used to attach and permanently affix the weeded design onto the garment. Vinyl Heat transfers are a popular choice for customised t-shirts, printing by football teams and other sports teams, as it is ideal for printing numbers and names onto a single colour design. Choose Vinyl transfer printing for high impact designs.
Q. What is Laser Transfer?
Answer: White Laser Transfers are an excellent way to add full colour designs to fabrics, but also toadd decorations to complex items such as cooler bags and even stress balls. It is done byprinting a digital image onto special transfer paper, then placing this onto the fabric orgarment. This transfers the inked image onto the product. Laser printing entails excellent, high quality and sharp prints with low setup costs.
Q. What is Digital Full Colour Transfer Printing?
Answer: In digital full colour transfer printing, our garment printing specialists add a vector cutline to your design, so it is able to be read by the Roland VersaCamm printer as the CAD plot line. We then print your design in high resolution, score it via computer and manually weed it. Once the transfer has been cut, printed and weeded, it is then pressed with heat to permanently affix onto the respective garment.
