What is the difference between digital and screen printing?
Cotton digital printing prints designs directly on a fabric’s surface through an inkjet printer. It is ideal for patterns that require a lot of color and detail, and on orders that are relatively small. Polyester digital printing involves a similar process but it uses transfer paper instead of printing directly on the fabric. Screen printers use stencils to apply layers of ink on a fabric’s surface, and each color requires a different stencil. This option is best for designs that require a high level of vibrancy. Even though there is a high minimum order quantity to support the screen printing process, the price per yard is much more competitive compared to digital printing.
