Ordering Custom Long Sleeves Shirts Provides Many Benefits
The screen printing method is commonly used on clothing because graphics and text applied with this method come out crisp and attractive. In fact, it is the most popular method of applying images onto clothing, including all types of t-shirts. Designs of all sizes work well with this method and companies are able to reproduce the same images or text repeatedly from one screen.
Screen printed items are the most expensive out of all printing methods because they are usually done completely by hand and offer the most crisp and beautiful details. They are also able to be washed and dried by machine without worry for damage or wear to the graphics or clothing. Screen printing is sometimes known as silk screening or silk screen.
The heat transfer method of printing is an option for those not wanting to spend the money on screen printing. This method is cheaper because it produces a less detailed and durable end result. While the text and graphics may not be as detailed or durable to washing, this option is ideal for those purchasing bulk orders of clothing pieces for promotional giveaways, corporate events, or for a casual company uniform.
A technique called direst to garment, or DTG, is a new printing technology which is ideal for certain circumstances. It is much better suited for small orders or single orders and it allows printers to use many colors without incurring the cost and effort involved with multi-color designs found with screen printing. Because of its higher setup costs, screen printing makes sense for large orders with few colors, although, many colors can be used but clients pay more for each additional color.
Other printing and clothing decor options that buyers can choose from include vinyl cuttings and embroidery. Both are meant for specialized orders, including those on oddly shaped items such as hats, bags, and gloves. Embroidery is very popular and many ships which offer screen printing also offer embroidery services.
There are almost no limits to the different text and graphics which can be printed onto clothing. Buyers can come in with their own drawn or printed designs or the shop can use some of theirs, depending on the client demands. Actual clothing items vary, but most shops carry a wide range of styles, sizes, and items.
The price for custom long sleeves shirts varies, based on the style and what the buyers wanted printed on them. Many printing businesses offer discounts for large orders which is good for companies making a bulk order for an event or yearly purchase. Other buyers include sports teams, schools, clubs, and volunteer organizations.
