In order to provide printing that best suits your artwork, TechPrint uses these industry standard methods…
· Screen printing - used on the majority of our orders
· Digital printing – used on selected low quantity requests
Screen printing is the best option for prints requiring long-lasting durability, resistant to washes and UV.
The setup process involves preparing a high resolution artwork to print films for each colour, and then expose each film onto a screen (mesh) to create a stencil.
During the printing phase, ink is forced by a squeegee through the mesh onto the substrate (could be a variety of garments / heat transfer paper / plastic / wood / glass). Unless air cured, printed items need to be heat cured generally by passing through a conveyor dryer.
High quality screen printing involves experience, experimentation, and a high level of skill.
At TechPrint we are able to provide contract screen printing for international customers.
Digital printing is simpler, easier, but more expensive for large runs. It is best used for printing high amounts of detail for orders of small quantity. This process is printing directly onto the surface of your garment, or printed on a transfer paper which is then heat pressed onto the garment. Digital printing is less resistant to washes.
Each printing process has its advantages & disadvantages. Our team will determine which method will be best applied for your artwork & required quantity.
