Garment Printing

Garment Printing processes are applicable when a graphic or pattern is printed onto a product as part of finished goods manufacturing. This group of processes is divided into combinations of different printing types and different sizes.

Print Size (Area)

  • Small should be selected when the print area is under 225 square centimeters (15cm x 15cm). This is applicable for logo placements and pocket prints.
  • Medium should be selected when the print area is between 225 and 900 square centimeters (30cm x 30cm). This is applicable for medium-sized placement graphics.
  • Large should be selected when the print area is over 900 square centimeters (30cm x 30cm). This is applicable for full panel prints.

Print Types

  • Burnout Printing should be selected when a printed pattern is created on a blended synthetic and cellulosic fabric product by dissolving out the cellulose component using an acid.
  • Digital Printing should be selected when a digital printer is used to print ink directly onto a product to create a graphic or pattern.
  • Screen Printing should be selected when a printing paste is applied to a product using a rotary or flat screen before being dried and affixed to the surface of the product. Printing pastes including PVC (plastisol), non-PVC (high solids acrylic), and water-based screen-printing inks can all use this as a representative process.
  • Sublimation Transfer Printing should be selected when a digital printer is used to print ink onto transfer paper, which is then sublimated onto the product using heat and pressure.
