Heat Transfer Printing, Silkscreen Printing, and Embroidery

Which one is the most suitable one for you?

Before jumping into the conclusion which customisation will be more suitable for you, we shall first look at what are the different types and how the process of each method works.

1. Silkscreen Printing

Silk-screen printing is one of the most popular printing technique, where inks are transferred onto a substrate. Stencils (artwork) are made onto the printing block that is lined with mesh, and a blocking ink is filled onto areas that are not covered by the stencil. Ink passes through the open mesh using a squeegee and transferred onto the substrate.

 Each colour on the artwork is differentiated by different blocks. One colour is printed at a time and several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image.

2. Heat Transfer Printing

Designs are printed onto a medium known as the transfer foil or PU material. Excess paper surrounding the artwork is carefully trimmed off followed by placing it on the substrate. Pressure and heat are then applied, designs are now transferred to the end product.

3. Embroidery

Logo embroidery is stitched using thread or yawn by an embroidery machine. Before sending the items to embroider, the image must first be digitized by software into a file name DST for the machine to read and stitch to the end product.

For embroidery to be long lasting, do look out for embroidery that uses polyester thread instead of rayon as it is durable and safe from bleaching.
