Screen printing-  design your T-shirt

This is the gold standard for t-shirt printing. Your printer makes original screens of your design (one for each color) so you can print in bulk.

Pros: Reliable standard for printing. Affordable and high quality.

Cons: New screen required for every new color or design revision (which gets costly). Colorful designs end up being expensive.

Vinyl graphics – design your T-shirt

Another method of heated transfer, vinyl printing uses more durable vinyl instead of just ink.

Pros: Extremely durable and high quality. Ideal for when you want your design to stand out (literally).

Cons: Additional colors cost more, so complicated designs get expensive. Not great for large orders.

Direct-to-garment (or print-on-demand)- design your T-shirt

A newer option, DTG printing uses the freedom of inkjet printing, but prints directly on fabric.

Pros: Highly customizable designs with maximum detail and extensive color choices.

Cons: Use for small batches or perhaps a single sample. The more you’re printing, the less viable it becomes. Doesn’t work well on dark-colored garments.
