Print, Heat Transfer

Digital Print

Digital Printing

Digital printing offers greater flexibility and precision compared to traditional screen printing and heat transfer methods.

Using inkjet technology, digital printing jets ink directly onto fabrics to achieve high definition, complex patterns, and design effects with intricate detail.

It facilitates fast delivery of diverse designs such as customized and small batch orders.

The inks used in digital printing typically have good durability and colorfastness, withstanding regular washing and abrasion. For prints with more than 3-4 colors, we recommend digital printing.

Used on all light colored fabrics, and is especially recommended for prints with more than 3-4 colors.

For light colored fabrics with multi-color designs.

Dye Sublimation printing

Dye sublimation

Dye sublimation is a printing process where solid dyes are transformed into a gas state and infused into fabric fibers to dye them.The technique uses heat and pressure or steam.

Dye sublimation produces high-definition, photo-realistic, permanent prints as the dyes penetrate deep into the fibers. Since dyes bond inside the fibers, the colors do not fade or peel.

Dye sub can be used on various fabrics including polyester, blends, etc. but cannot be applied directly to cotton and other natural fibers.

For full surface printing, except cotton and other natural fibers.

heat Transfer

Heat transfer printing

Heat transfer printing applies artwork from printed films onto fabrics through heat application to achieve decorative effects.

Heat transfer can replicate intricate designs, text, and images with precision on printed goods.

Can be used for heat transfer including metallic foils, pearl finishes, glow films, diamond grain, etc. to achieve diverse decorative results.

Heat transfer prints have a smooth coating over the design that can be felt to the touch.

For all fabric types, especially when print designs contain more than 3-4 colors.

Screen Printing

screen printing

Screen printing is a highly cost-effective method of applying ink layers to a printing surface using a mesh screen template.

The technique is suitable for high quality, durable designs and artwork in bulk on apparel, including water-based ink and plastisol inks, metallic Ink Printing and metallic Foil Printing

Screen printed designs remain durable and long-lasting after multiple washes.

However, each screen can only be used for one color, so the more colors in a design, the higher the cost. When more than 3-4 colors are needed, screen printing may no longer be cost-effective, and other printing methods should be considered.

If this is of interest, please let me know for further details.

Water-Based Screen Printing

water-based screen printing

Water-based dye inks can penetrate and adsorb onto fibers very well.

After being adsorbed by the fibers, it hardly change the handfeel of the fibers themselves, making printed goods softer and more comfortable.

Screen printing with water-based dyes is suitable for various textiles, including different fiber types like cotton, polyester, nylon, etc.

With proper drying and curing, it can maintain good color fastness.

Water-based dye inks are not suitable for printing on dark colored fabrics.

For light colored natural or synthetic fabrics with print designs of 3-4 colors or less

plastisol ink screen printing

plastisol ink Screen printing

Plastisol-based ink produces vivid, brilliant patterns with excellent color saturation.

It can be adjusted to suit different fabric types and print requirements, achieving diverse effects. After printing, plastisol forms a smooth, glossy finish with high luster.

Specialty inks or additives like glitter and glow-in-the-dark materials can be added for more possibilities.

We recommend using plastisol ink screen printing on dark colored fabrics.

For dark colored natural or synthetic fabrics with print designs of 3-4 colors or less

plastisol ink screen printing

Metallic Ink Screen Print

Metallic inks create highly decorative prints with unique shimmering effects.

Available in silver, gold and other metal shades, metallic inks make prints eye-catching and striking.

Glitter or other colored inks can also be mixed with metallic inks for special visual effects.

For natural fabrics only and is not suitable for multi-color prints.

Metallic Foil Screen Print

Metallic Foil Screen Print

Metallic foil printing transfers foil material onto garments, creating patterns and effects with a metallic texture and sheen.

Metallic foil printing gives prints a unique metallic visual appeal and textural feel.

It can be applied on any fabric, with the drawback of colors fading over time.

For natural fabrics only and is not suitable for multi-color prints.
