Which print method is right for my project?
The most suitable process for your project ultimately comes down to your design, the quantity you'd like printed, and your budget.
Digital printing is a superior choice for full-colour, photographic and customisable prints. It's suitable for natural fabrics such as cotton, silk, linen and hemp. Digital printing is the best option for you if you want a run of 1 to 10 units, or if you have a photograhic or colourful design and want to get the most accurate result.
Screen printing is better for solid colours (matching Pantone colours) and solid shapes, like vector artwork and logos. You can print on a varierty of fabrics including polyester. You can also screen print photographic and full-colour images, but you won't get as much detail as if it were digitally printed. With initial setup costs & efforts, screen printing really gets to shine as cost-effective when you are doing larger runs, 50+.
Embroidery uses computer-precision to sew rayon thread into fabric with a felt backing. It's a great option for hats, beanies, polos, sleeves, shirts and more. Be sure to consider legibility, as embroidered can be hard to read at certain sizes.
