When to use screen printing?

This is really one of those myths that persists over time. Usually, people think, "if I want a high-quality t-shirt, it has to be screen printed." Wrong! Well, kind of. Yes, screen printing is high quality, even a lot, but it's not the only method with quality, and not all clothing customization jobs can be done in screen printing.

In fact, screen printing has relatively specific situations in which it can be used.

  • Screen printing works with solid colors, it does not allow photographic reproductions;
  • Screen printing should have a maximum of 6 colors for superior quality;
  • Screen printing has a minimum production requirement of 24 pieces, not suitable for small quantities.
