● DTG printing is recommended for full-colour designs with lots of details (like illustrations, gradients, photographs, etc.) and/or when ordering in small quantities, such as a once-off design or just a few pieces.
Tee Junction's DTG printing is the best-in-class and offers very good colours and durability, and will be suitable for most applications. DTG excels for full-colour designs such as photographs and illustrations.
● Screen printing will produce the most vibrant, durable prints thanks to the thicker and more solid plastisol/waterbased inks available. The screen printing process involves setting up each colour in the design separately and is, therefore, more labour and resource-intensive. The minimum quantity is usually 10-25 units, and there is a maximum of 5-6 solid colours that can be printed depending on the garment.
We recommend screenprinting for situations where the t-shirts & apparel will be worn and washed regularly. It is most suitable for those who seek the best colour reproductions and longevity for the life of the garment, such as for business uniforms, sports teams, fashion retail, etc.
The Tee Junction team will always provide the best advice and guidance for your needs.
