Introducing the custom printing process of hoodie:
Water slurry printing
Water slurry is a kind of water-based slurry, which belongs to water-based pigment printing. It is only suitable for printing on light-colored fabrics, such as white, off-white, beige, light blue and other fabrics. The hand feeling printed on the sweater is not strong, the covering power is not strong, the color is not bright, and the color will fade if it is used for a long time. But its price is cheaper, and it is a lower-grade printing type.
Mucilage is an extension of water slurry. The emergence of glue and its wide application in water slurry, because of its very good coverage, it can also print any light color on dark clothes, and it has a certain gloss and three-dimensional effect, and the color is more bright than water slurry. , Making ready-made clothes look more high-end, so it can quickly become popular, almost every printed advertising sweater will use it. The price is slightly higher than that of water slurry.
3D thick board printing
Thick board paste is based on glue. Its effect is as if glue is repeatedly printed on multiple layers. It can achieve a very neat three-dimensional effect. It is currently a popular printing technique in the world! Generally speaking, the process requirements are relatively more. High, so the general printing factory is not good at printing, generally suitable for sports and leisure clothing, patterns generally use numbers, letters, geometric patterns, lines, etc., the lines should not be too thin. The use of advertising shirts is relatively small, and the cost is also higher.
Similar to glue printing, the difference is that gold or silver is added to the bronzing color, which makes it look like a metallic luster, which is generally more obvious when printed on black clothes. This process is also recommended for custom sweaters. The price is also more expensive.
Thermal transfer process
As people’s requirements for the richness of patterns become higher and higher, the designs of customized patterns for sweaters are becoming more and more diverse. Many photo effects or pictures with particularly rich colors are difficult to solve with the above 6 screen printing methods. Transfer printing is their beneficial supplement. The pattern is first printed on transfer paper or film, and is mostly printed with a digital printer or an offset printing machine, with strong and clear color reproduction ability, and then the pattern is transferred to the sweater by a pressing machine. The application of heat transfer printing on sweaters is developing at the fastest speed.
