Screen printing, also known as silk screening or silkscreen printing, is the process of transferring a stenciled design onto a surface using a mesh screen, ink, and a squeegee (a rubber blade). The basic process of screen printing involves creating a stencil on a mesh screen and then pushing the ink to create and imprint the design on the surface of the t-shirt. This is a very popular technique because of many reasons, but the most compelling reason is the vast choice of colors that can be used and the efficiency of creating screen print t-shirts is faster than other methods for bulk orders.
Where it can be done: T-shirts, polo shirts, sweaters, and hoodies
Embroidery, or monogram, refers to the process of using a professional industrial sewing machine to create a vector file of a logo into a readable drive to create the pattern onto the textile of the product. A person is needed with the technical skills to handle the machine and make sure production runs smoothly, after all, machines can still have faulty issues. An embroidered design, which is stitched straight into the fabric, is much more likely to take longer time during production and last for longer than a screen-printed design (which is printed on top of the fabric). Hence why the cost of embroidery can be higher compared to screen printing.
Where it can be done: Outdoor shirts, polo shirts, dress shirts, hoodies, jackets, aprons, and hats
Laser engraving is a process that vaporizes materials (using heat from the machine) into fumes to engrave permanent marks on the surface of the material. Many people get laser engraving and laser etching confused, but the main difference between both is that etching melts the micro surface to create raised marks, whereas engraving removes material to create deep marks. Many professionals use different file formats for different engraving and cutting applications, but we like to use SVG files because it offers scalable versatility that makes them the best file format for laser engraving.
Where it can be done: leather patches on hats
As the names suggest, vinyl graphic involves your logo, design, and other info cut out in a lasting adhesive. They are used to wrap part (or all) of your vehicle–usually the central portions like the hood, sides, and rear. They are also commonly used as letterings on windows and doors to show business hours, logos, and other info you may want to show. With vinyl graphics, you can also add a special touch of perforated vinyl decals to cover the windows fully (but still be able to view the outside).
Vinyl graphics offer the most room for creative advertising and are a great choice for the long-term.
Where it can be done: vehicles, windows, and doors.
