Some people like to print a lot of things on custom-made cultural shirts. , people can’t see the theme and don’t know what you want to express.
So when we customize cultural shirts, the pattern design should be like sending a telegram in the past. A few simple words can summarize the theme.

3. Printing process
If you want to customize printed T-shirts, you must first understand the printing process ~ the four major printing processes are Refers to: screen printing, direct printing, heat transfer and embroidery.
1. Silk screen printing
The printing process is through The design drawing is used to produce the film using a laser imagesetter, and then screen printing, printing and other complex processes are required. Color plates need to be made, which mainly include the steps of design, film production, printing, printing, and drying. Screen printing. Therefore, this way of printing cultural shirts can be understood as a way of combining manual work and machinery.
2. Digital direct injection
How is the digital direct injection process printed? What about pattern making? In fact, this process is a pure machine printing method. The pattern is directly sprayed onto the T-shirt through a computer connected to a digital direct inkjet printer. You can also imagine it as something we often see in our lives. With the printer, the T-shirt is equivalent to paper, and then the pattern in the computer is printed on the T-shirt.
3. Heat transfer
The principle of heat transfer process is similar to tattoo stickers , the pattern needs to be printed on special paper first, then laser cut, and then printed on the clothes using high-temperature pressing, which is suitable for patterns with rich colors or gradients. The color of the base shirt is preferably white or light, and the printing will look like nothing and has good breathability. If the base shirt is dark, it needs to be reinforced with color paint, and the printing will have a slight gelatinous texture.

The biggest difference between customizing T-shirts and buying ready-made clothes is that the price of ready-made clothes is fixed, while the price of customized T-shirts includes two parts: base shirt and printing. The price of base shirt is fixed, and the printing price depends on the size of the pattern you print. Color, type of process selected, etc. are calculated. Everyone should understand clearly during the customization process, choose and match the pattern with good effect and high cost performance.
If the color is single, you can choose silk screen printing; if the color is rich or has gradient colors, you can choose direct printing or heat transfer; for exquisite small icons, you can choose embroidery. Specifically, the design drawings are used for analysis.
