One of the most common decorating methods. Screen printing is carried out by using a mesh screen that allows ink to transfer through it onto a product, like a stencil. Once the mesh screen is laid out on top of the imprint area, the ink is spread across the surface with a squeegee blade which forces the color to fully transfer onto the material through the areas designated by the screen.
Screen printing is the default decorating method used on a huge range of products; it is not limited to apparel. Best presents itself in the best way on smooth surfaces. Screen printing is typically priced per color and per location.
Pad printing works essentially like a stamp. Logo or artwork is made upon a block or stamp which is then pressed into ink and then pressed down onto your product.
Heat Transfer entails a printer using extreme heat to a press pre-printed graphic directly onto a product. This is another method that is ideal for multiple color imprints. This method works best for synthetic fabrics or blends and is long-lasting.
Debossing creates a 3-dimensional appearance with a dye that is heat pressed into the fabric. The result is a tone-on-tone look that can work well with virtually any color.
Laser Engraving is mainly used on metal products. There is no ink involved. Cuts your logo or artwork directly into the product so the material of the product is what shines through as your logo.
