What is the difference between screen printing and digital printing?Screen Printing is one of the most commonly used methods in apparel decorating. It is the process of pushing ink through a mesh screen one color at a time. For screen printing, the higher the volume, the lower the cost per print. Digital printing is the process of using a printer head to apply ink directly to a piece of apparel or fabric. Digital printing is fairly new but advanced technology that affords the ability to print small run orders on both white and light colored garments. If you think about your paper printer at home, a digital printer is the same thing but for garments! With digital printing the color palette is unlimited, which allows you recreate virtually anything from single color logos to high-color photographs.
