Benefits of Screen Printing Shirts
- Color Boldness
Spot color designs (solid color) are printed with custom selected colors and are not simulated like other printing processes. This results in printed graphics that will appear bold and crisp while being less prone to fading or looking muddy like many other modern printing techniques.
- Long lasting & durable quality
The composition of inks used in screen printing allows prints to be able to withstand more stress than others without losing the quality of the print. Longevity of screen printing far surpasses other methods of apparel printing to this day.
- Cost Effective for larger quantities
Screen printing requires exposing and alignment of a screen which requires the need for order minimums. The positive side is that large orders are more cost effect with screen printing since it is built to handle large quantity runs. The more garments placed in an order, the better the pricing will be.
- Various inks can be used
Screen printing allows for a variety of inks between plastisol, water-based, and discharge inks which result in more possibilities when it comes to the look and feel of the print. Plastisol can be combined with additives such as soft-hand, puff, glow, gel gloss, and other effects that alternative printing methods can not achieve.
