SCREEN PRINTING VS VINYL HOW TO CHOOSE

SCREEN PRINTING VS VINYL

Taking a look into the differences between heat vinyl press and screen printing when making a custom t shirt. Let's begin...

Both will give you a quality, a long lasting product, and in most cases either option will work just as well as the other with a few differences. So let's take a look at those differences.



Vinyl press plotter machine (Vinyl Heat Transfer)

With the vinyl heat transfer process, a heat press machine is used to cut out simple designs and letters in pieces of colored vinyl. the heat press is then used to transfer each vinyl color of the design onto the object being pressed through a process that uses a combination of heat and pressure.This is usually done for smaller runs and only a few colors.

Screen printing 

When a design is produced using the screen printing method, actual screens are used in the process. The design is burned onto the screens, ink is then spread over the screen, passing through to the garment underneath only in the areas you want it to be. Only one color per screen, so depending on the number of colors in the design, you may need multiple screens to produce the final output on the item. Screen printing is usually for higher quantity runs and multiple color output.

Screen Printing Basics part 3 with IDG's Custom Screen Printing Palm Desert

Size of the Artwork

If you use the same size graphic on different sized shirts, the graphic stays the same size across all shirt sizes. We can scale the image down to make a smaller graphic for the smaller shirts but another screen will need to be made and that is added expense. So if at all possible make your graphic size work for all your garment sizes. Most clients find a way to do this

Screen Printing Basics part 2 with IDG's Custom Screen Printing Palm Desert

Can I Print 1 Shirt or Do I Need to Screen Print in Bulk?

automatic screen printing machine
Screen printing is designed to be printed in bulk. The printing part of the process is actually the fastest part. All the costs and time are in the setup. This is why the cost per shirt goes down the more you print per design.
A lot of work goes into getting a shirt ready to print and requires almost every employee at the company. Artwork has to be mocked up and films have to be created. After this, the screens department converts the film into screens. Next, the printers setup the presses to run the shirts. It takes a good bit of time to setup a press to run shirts.
Because of this we cannot print 1 shirt at a time as it would easily cost $150+ to do. The smallest order of shirts we will do is 25 of the same design.

Screen Printing Basics with IDG's Custom Screen Printing Palm Desert

Screen Printing Basics

When a design is produced using the screen printing method, actual screens are used in the process! Essentially, this screen is cut to make a stencil for the design. Ink is then spread over the screen, passing through to the object underneath only in the areas you want it to be. Only one color per screen can be used - so depending on the number of colors in the design, you’ll need multiple screens to produce the final item.
