What are the types of T-shirt printing?

These 3 types of T-shirt printing is currently the most used. Silk Screen T-shirt printing, or Screen printing. It uses a Mesh-based stencil to apply the ink to the T-shirts. Screen printing allows the fabric to absorb the ink longer, resulting in longer-lasting prints for your t-shirts. However, due to the nature of the printing technique, it can be costly when done in low quantity.

Heat Transfer T-shirt printing. This method is done using a heat press machine to apply heat-applied materials to the fabric of the T-shirt. Printing with a heat press machine is relatively easy and cheap. It is good for low quantity printing. But the prints will not be as lasting as Screen printing.

Sublimation T-shirt Printing. This method uses heat to fuse ink and fabric. Unlike heat transfer printing, where the print leaves a layer above the fabric, sublimation printing opens up the "pores" of the graphic tee shirt and pushes the ink in, cause the ink to combine with the fabric. T-shirts that use sublimation printing will not have to worry about the prints of the t-shirts peeling off (like those of heat transfer)

For Merk Box, we uses Silk Screen printing for all of our graphic T-shirts. So far this is the method that we had been using and had been a proven method for us to keep quality prints on quality t-shirts.
