T-shirt printing generally uses silk screen printing and hot stamping. Silk screen printing has to be made with one plate first. On the one hand, the cost of a single piece is high. On the other hand, there are restrictions on the color, which is generally up to four colors, so the color is not rich. The advantage of silk screen printing is that it allows the paint to adhere to the T-shirt. Silk screen is generally used for mass production, and individual customization is generally not used. For hot stamping, the sublimation ink (a kind of special ink) is first printed on a special paper with a printer, and then transferred to the clothes by a hot stamping machine. If the clothes are less than 70% cotton or completely If it does not contain cotton (such as a ball jersey worn for playing a ball), the ink can be transferred directly to the clothes. If it is pure cotton clothes or high cotton content, you need to use special T-shirt transfer paper. After printing, this kind of paper will leave a layer of rubber-like things on the clothes. If the transfer paper is good, The glue feeling of the picture is very small. If it is a cheap transfer paper, the glue feeling will be slightly stronger. In a short time, the clothes will not affect the picture after washing.
Cotton T-shirt hot stamping is divided into light hot stamping and dark hot stamping. Light color generally refers to white and some light blue T-shirts, and light-colored hot stamping paper. Good quality and poor quality are generally manifested in the stretched printed part. The poor paper will break when pulled, the good paper will stretch for a long time without breaking, and the time to save the picture is more likely to fade.

The glue printing and thermosetting ink printing have different requirements for the design of the pattern. The glue can only be used for simple color block pattern printing, and the thermosetting ink can be printed with a screen transition, not only on white T-shirts. Screen printing of primary colors and spot color printing on dark T-shirts. If the pattern designed by the designer does not match the technical craftsmanship mastered by the producer, the printed pattern will not reach the designer’s original intention and effect, or even print at all. Therefore, T-shirt designers must be skilled in the T-shirt printing process, especially excellent T-shirt designers will pay close attention to the development of the world’s latest T-shirt printing materials and printing equipment and their technical characteristics in order to maximize Quickly adopt the latest scientific and technological achievements to produce novel and unique T-shirts.
