With the growing trends and new advertising strategies, screen printing and custom embroideries are spreading their own market. Many corporate agencies go for custom designed T-shirts and other wearing for their employees which has evolved as a great marketing idea.
To get these custom designs , the two most popular ways are screen printing and embroideries. It is very difficult to know that which one is suitable for you. Here is some useful information that will help you in choosing the best method for you.....
First, let's talk about embroidery. The custom embroidery is performed in two processes in which the first step is to get a digital design for your company logo. This process is done with the help of a software that converts your design into a machine generated form. After this step the design is replicated into the stitches and embroidery is done on the garments. This whole process takes only 10 minutes.
While we talk about screen printing, you have to consider many factors. First you have to prepare a design and take a look for the quality of screen and machine which is being used for the process. The design is created in Adobe Illustrator (a software). After this step, the design is printed over a film in the presence of light. There are special types of screens that are used to deposit the ink to get fine designs. After performing some chemical processes the screen is ready to print the garments. The time period for this process depends upon the structure of your design. This process is time-consuming as it can only print one shirt in 15 minutes.
If you compare both the processes, then you will find that speed is the main reason upon which you can make a decision. However, in case of embroidery the pitfall is that it take several minutes for digitizing the design, if the logo has a big size.
If we consider the quality, then we will find that screen printing can be washed off after sometimes. However embroidered T-shirts and cloths are long lasting. Also, embroidery is cheaper than screen printing.
The decision between these two methods depends upon your requirement of work. If you want to use the designs for promotional clothing, then screen printing is good for you while in corporate clothing embroidery is the best choice.
