Advantages Of Direct-To-Garment Printing For Custom Apparel

Posted by Sharprint Associated Press on Mon, Aug, 27, 2012 @ 11:08 AM

Traditionally, the bright t-shirts with colorful logos and statements sold in retail stores and handed out by companies as promotional items are made using screen printing techniques. Interestingly, screen printing techniques first appeared in China around 960 AD and Westerners began to develop the technique into mass production in the 1930s. While screen printing continues to be a popular method of image transfer, digital textile printing is emerging as a popular option with lower costs and faster results than screen printing. 

Screen Printing

Achieved by imposing a design onto a fine screen and then pressing ink into the screen over the desired apparel item, screen printing has been the primary textile printing technique for years. During screen printing, different images and colors each require a new screen or transfer sheet, requiring several steps to obtain the desired effect. 

Screen printing is also a common print method for designs on everything from balloons to clock faces as well as t-shirts and other garments and textiles.

6 Branding Ideas for Your Business' Custom Apparel

Posted by Sharprint Associated Press on Fri, Aug, 24, 2012 @ 10:08 AM

Custom apparel is a great way to brand a business. With specially designed apparel on every employee, businesses can guarantee that the staff is working to promote the business image any time they're on the clock. Providing company shirts or hats will keep the staff looking clean and uniform, giving the entire company a more professional and pulled-together look. Use these ideas for an effective branding technique that makes an impact.

Share Goals and Accomplishments

Business apparel can be custom designed to share all kinds of different information. If the company is working toward a goal that can be shared publicly, what better way to showcase it than on custom apparel? Visitors to the location are sure to see the goal emblazoned on each employee and get excited to see it come to fruition. This keeps both staff and customers focused on it.

For example, if a restaurant is revamping the menu, shirts that say "All new menu items coming soon!" are sure to pique interest. Diners will return to see if those new items have rolled out. Waiters may even get valuable feedback about what the clientele wants to see on the menu. When the project is done, roll out a line of shirts reading "The new menu is here!"
