How to Print on Cogarment T-Shirts


cogarments

There are a variety of ways to print on cogarment t-shirts. In addition to screen printing, you can also choose between direct-to-garment printing and sublimation printing. Screen printing used to be the best way to get a good print, but direct-to-garment printing has taken the place of screen printing as a top-quality option. Screen printing may be less expensive, but it will not give you the same quality as direct-to-garment printing.

Printing methods

The two main types of printing methods for Cogarment t-shirts are screen printing and direct-to-garment printing. Screen printing is best suited for mass printing or for printing for sports teams and organizations. This method uses fabric and inks to create a design on the shirt. It is also preferred for large print runs, especially for intricate designs. Here are some of the pros and cons of both methods.

Fabric options

There are several fabric choices for Cogarment t-shirts. Cotton is a common fabric option. It has many different weights and characteristics and is easy to sew and iron. Polyester, for example, is durable and dries quickly. Cotton and polyester blends are light and cool. They also maintain their shape even after many items of washing. For more technical details, contact the manufacturer of the fabric you want to use.

Need for a great design

There are a few steps that you must take if you want to create a great design for your Cogarment t-shirts. First, you need to know your target market. There are different target markets for different brands. For example, if your target market is a sports team, you should consider the size and font of the team name and the colors. If you are creating a design for a child’s shirt, you may want to make it as colorful and bright as possible.

Screen printing

When screen printing on garment t-shirts, the print is created by using a silk screening press. This machine looks like a 12-armed beast with wooden silk screens on each arm. The t-shirt is then stretched over the ironing board-looking device. To make sure the silk screens are aligned, a laser is used to guide the printing head. The ink is then forced through the screen. The print is created in one or more passes, depending on the amount of ink that is applied.

Sublimation

The most fun part of sublimation printing is the printing process. A sublimation printer prints the design or lettering onto a piece of sublimation transfer paper. The print may look dull or faded at first, but once heated will appear bright and vivid. The print should be placed with its ink side down on the shirt. If using a heat press, it is best to cover the paper with a piece of Teflon paper or heat-safe tape.
