Questions

  1. What is screen printing?
  2. What is sublimation?
  3. What is embroidery?

Answers


What is screen printing?
Screen printing is a process that involves pushing ink through a woven mesh stencil onto fabric. The stencil opening creates the space through with 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.Because of the technique of screen printing, only one color can be applied at a time. Therefore, the number of colors on a t-shirt are limited, and each layer demands more time, another screen and stencil, and ultimately, more money.

What is sublimation?
Dye sublimation is a digital heat transfer process that transfers an image to a polyester garment or polyester coated substrate permanently. When heated to a high temperature, sublimation ink turns into a gas, allowing it to enter into the open pores of the polyester-coated item or polyester garment. Once the transfer paper is removed, the pores of the item cool and close up, trapping the ink (and image) inside the surface of the item. The sublimated image is a permanent application and will take on the texture and base color of the substrate.

What is Embroidery?
Embroidery is the technique of decorating apparel, fabric, or other materials with needle and thread. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as sequins, rhinestones, or yarn. It can be produced by a machine or in some cases by hand. In our usage it is always done by a machine that is specifically made for the apparel promotional industry.
