  • OFFSET: A technique that transfers an inked image from a plate to a rubber surface and is then rolled onto paper. This is the most common printing method for high volumes.

  • DIGITAL: A simple process that uses toner or liquid ink. This is typically used for lower quantities and variable printing.

  • SUBLIMATION: A process where waxy ink is heated to a pre-set temperature that is high enough to allow the ink to vaporize and instantly bond with a special type of paper.

  • LETTERPRESS: An age old technique that creates an impression by pressing a metal type into paper.

  • FOIL: A heat-pressing technique that stamps a foil image to a printed design.

  • SCREEN: A common process that involves pushing ink through a woven mesh stencil. The stencil opening creates the space through which the ink will penetrate to create the design. Ink is pushed through the mesh stencil, pulled by a fill blade or squeegee, onto the product surface and then dried to ensure that the ink cures and adheres to the textile.

  • DTG: Direct-To-Garment is the current go-to technique in which a special printer directly applies the ink onto the garment with inkjet technology. Direct-To-Garment uses specialty water-based inks, which are absorbed by the fibers of the garment.

  • SUBLIMATION: The apparel version of this technique includes the process of printing onto a special sheet of paper, and then transferring that image onto fabric. The ink is heated until it disintegrates into the corresponding fabric. This dye-printing technique allows designs to be displayed “all over” the printable area.

  • FOIL: The apparel version of this technique involves the print being applied to garments in a two-step process by first applying your design using an adhesive ink. Foil is then applied and heated. After the heating process, excess foil is removed, leaving only your shiny design.

  • EMBROIDERY: A very common technique of using a needle to apply thread to a garment. The process begins with a design that has to be "digitized" which is the specialized process of converting two dimensional artwork into stitches.
