The Different Types of Screen Printing

Most Popular

Plastisol Screen Printing

Plastisol screen printing is one of the most popular and versatile screen printing methods, widely used for its ability to produce vibrant, durable prints on any apparel product. We use plastisol inks which have excellent opacity and pop when printed against the t shirt and fleece material. Best of all, our inks don't crack or fade after a couple of washes. 

Raised 3D

Puff Screen Printing

Puff screen printing, also known as puff ink printing, is a distinctive technique that uses plastisol ink mixed with a puff additive to create a three-dimensional, raised texture on printed apparel. This process involves applying the ink through a screen printing stencil onto the fabric, which is then heat-treated through a dryer. The heat activates the puff additive, causing it to expand and rise from the fabric, resulting in a raised, sponge-like effect that adds an extra layer of pop to your printed merchandise.

Multi-Color Designs

Simulated Process Printing

Simulated process printing combines multiple ink colors through a layering technique to create complex and detailed designs on dark or light garments. It uses halftones of a few ink colors to simulate the full spectrum of colors in a design. This process allows for the printing of photorealistic images and intricate graphics with a high level of detail and color, making it a preferred method for designs that are too complex for traditional screen printing methods.

CYMK Four Color Process Print

Digital Hybrid Screen Printing

Digital Screen Printing combines traditional screen printing techniques with modern digital printing technology. These methods are designed to leverage the strengths of both processes, providing high-quality, efficient solutions for printing t shirt designs that have lots of colors, gradients, and shading in them that a regular screen print process can't do.

XL Sized Prints

Jumbo Screen Printing

Jumbo print capabilities at Garment Decor allow for printing larger designs that extend beyond traditional print boundaries, offering a unique and impactful branding opportunity. This method supports creative freedom with designs that can cover entire garment areas, such as full shirt fronts, backs, or even wrap-around prints.

Expert Advice

Comparing Screen Printing and Digital Printing: Which is Better?

Screen printing involves creating stencils and using them to apply layers of ink on the printing surface. For this reason, screen printing is best when your design has 8 colors or less. Digital printing, on the other hand, is a process that uses a CYMK printer to apply the color, making it better for detailed and photorealistic images. If you have a design and want to know which method you should choose, feel free to connect with our account rep to get started.

Choosing the Right Screen Printing Method: A Detailed Comparison

When deciding between regular, spot color screen printing and digital screen printing for artwork applications, the choice depends on factors such as the complexity of the design, the intended use of the prints, the volume of the production run, and the type of material being printed on. Here are ten use cases for each method, detailing scenarios that highlight their respective advantages.

When to use Plastisol Screen Printing

  • When your design is 1-8 colors and does not have lots of shading, gradients, details, and photo realism.
  • High-volume event t-shirts: Such as for marathons or festivals, where cost efficiency for large quantities is crucial.
  • Band Merchandise: Classic band logos and designs that require only a few solid colors for economical bulk production.
  • Limited Edition Streetwear Drops: Producing small batches of vintage-inspired designs for exclusive release, where each color layer is meticulously planned to recreate a classic look.
  • Last-Minute Event Apparel: For events with tight schedules where simple designs need to be produced quickly and in bulk, such as charity runs or corporate retreats.
  • Quick Turnaround Promotional Items: For trade shows or marketing events where promotional items like tote bags and caps are needed on short notice.

When to use Digital Screen Printing

  • Photographic Prints on T-Shirts: Ideal for producing apparel featuring detailed and realistic images.
  • Fine Art Reproductions: Capturing the full spectrum of colors and subtle tonal changes in high-quality art reproductions.
  • Short-Run Brand Apparel: For clothing brands testing or producing intricate, colorful patterns in limited quantities.
  • Customized Gifts: Personalized items such as family photo pillows, birthday shirts, or anniversary blankets.

Questions about Screen Printing

If you have any other thoughts or questions or haven’t found what you are looking for, feel free to connect with a rep.

Can I use more than one color in screen printing?

Yes, typically, we can incorporate up to 8 colors and on rare occasions, up to 10. For designs that require a broader color palette, considering our digital hybrid screen printing method for a better fit for your project's needs.

Are there setup fees for screen printing?

Yes, setup fees for screen printing depend on various factors, including screen size and number of colors in your design. Generally, the cost is $30 per screen.

Are screen printing screens saved after each order?

No, we don't save the screens after use. Imagine having a warehouse stuffed to the brim with used screens — quite the cluttered picture, right? If you think you'll need more shirts soon after your first order, it's wise to order extras to sidestep the setup process for subsequent jobs

Can I get screen printing samples before starting a full production run?

We offer samples before a production run for you to approve before we start your full order but we do not offer 1 piece sample orders. This is because of the time it takes to set-up an order. Our speciality is on bulk orders, with a minimum requirement of 50 items.

How long does screen printing last?

Screen prints are known for their durability and can last the life of the garment with proper care. Washing screen printed items inside out in cold water and hanging them to dry will help preserve the print quality.

Can you match the exact colors of my company logo or artwork?

Yes, we use the Pantone Matching System to mix ink precisely and can match the exact colors of your logo or artwork to ensure brand consistency.

How do you price screen printing services?

Pricing typically depends on several factors, including the number of colors in the design, the total quantity of items to be printed, and the type of garment or material being printed.

What is the minimum order quantity for screen printing?

Generally, screen printing is most cost-effective for larger quantities due to the setup involved. For this reason, our minimum is 50 items per design and you can mix n' match styles, sizes, and colors within your order to total out to our minimums.

Tips for Placing a
Screen Printing Order

Placing a screen printing order involves several key considerations to ensure that the final products meet your expectations. Here are some essential tips to guide you through the process of ordering screen printed items, whether they are T-shirts, hoodies, or other types of apparel:

1. Prepare Your Design

  • File Format: Provide your artwork in as high of a quality file you have, preferably vector format (such as AI, EPS, or PDF) to ensure that your design can be scaled without loss of quality. 
  • Design Details: Consider the complexity and number of colors in your design since this can affect the cost and the printing method used.
  • Size and Placement: Know where on the garment you want your design placed and how large you want it printed. 

2. Choose the Right Blank Garment

  • Material Quality: Select the quality of the blank garment. Options range from basic to premium qualities, affecting comfort, pricing, and printing results.
  • Style and Fit: Decide on the style and fit of the garment. This includes choices between unisex, fitted cuts, youth sizes, and more. Each choice may affect how your design will appear on the finished product.
  • Volume Discounts: Ordering larger quantities across multiple styles (like combining T-shirts and hoodies) can often qualify for volume discounts. This is cost-effective and maximizes your budget.

3. Proofing and Timelines

  • Proof Review: Before the full run, you'll always review a digital proof and a physical sample if necessary. This step is vital to ensure that your design looks as expected on the actual garment.
  • Approval Process: Approve proofs promptly to avoid delays in production. Be thorough in your review to catch any potential errors.
  • Deadline: Clearly communicate the deadline for when you need your order. Consider any events or launches that align with the arrival of your goods.
