Screen printing is the best option for designs that require a high level of vibrancy, particularly when printing on dark shirts. The ink in screen printing is applied thicker than digital printing, which results in brighter colours even on darker shirts. When printing 25 or more garments screen printing is the most effective and economical printing method around.
Digital printing is best used for items that require high amounts of detail, and orders of a smaller quantity. The fact that the digital printer does not use screens allows for a photographic print, with much more detail than traditional screen printing. As the ink is applied thinner (to achieve such detail), digital printing is best used on lighter colored shirts to allow the design to shine through. The fact that the design is processed and printed digitally allows for a quantity of one, since there are no screens or physical setup.
