Screen Printing vs DTG
Q: How is screen printing done:
A: Screen printing is a process that involves pushing ink through a woven mesh stencil onto fabric. The stencil opening creates the space through which the ink will go, to create the design. The ink is then pushed over the mesh, pulled by a fill blade or squeegee. As the blade is pulled, the ink is pushed through the mesh, onto the garment.
Q: How is Direct to Garment (DTG) printing done?
A: Direct to Garment (DTG) is a method where a printer directly applies the ink onto the t-shirt with inkjet technology. It involves a special printer, which prints the ink directly onto the garment in the desired design. DTG uses specialty inks, which are absorbed by the fibers of the garment.
Q:What is digitizing?
A: Digitizing is the process of converting your artwork to a .dst or digitized file. Our machines read these files and it is essentially a stitch map that guides the heads on where to stitch, change colors, tie off and more.
Q: Why is pricing based off stich count?
A: Embroidery is based off stitch count because the more stitches the longer it takes. Our machines can sew up to 1000 stitches per minute, so pricing is based around the stitch count vs colors like in screen printing.
Depending on your artwork logos are typically anywhere from 3000 stitches to 15k stitches and in some rare cases can be upwards of 100k stitches for a full back of a jacket. Get in touch with us to get an estimate on your stitch count today.
Q: What are Hoops, Flats & Hats
A: A hoop is a round or rectangular brace that your garment is "hooped" with to hold it in place along with backing to create a solid base to sew upon.
Flats & Hats is commonly referring to the hoops that are used on a flat item, vs a hat which sews on a cylindrical hoop.
Q: I already have a digitized file?
A: Not all digitizing is created equal. We prefer to digitize in house to the garment that the logo is being sewn on. Generally digitizing built for a shirt won't work on a structured hat or beanie. While we will give your digitizing a try, we cannot guarantee that it will be usable, as well as that the quality will be as good as digitizing in house.
