Printing methods

Screen printing

Screen printing is a technique which consists in dropping a layer of ink on a textile through the mesh of a screen or a stencil.


Pros: It is the ideal method for solid color printing and higher quantity requirements.

Digital printing

Digital printing consists in printing onto fabric from computer data flowing directly to the printer.


Pros: This method is ideal for lower quantities and more complex prints.

Sublimation printing

Textile sublimation is a technique in which the ink is thermally transferred onto polyester fabric. Beforehand, the logo is digitally printed on a transfer paper. With the help of a press providing heat and pressure, the ink goes into gaseous phase and penetrates the polyester fabric.

Pros: This method provides a high brilliance and great precision for all kinds of images.
