The Real Difference Between Vinyl and Screen Printing

Artscape Creative Provides These High-End Printing Capabilities that Exceed All Custom Apparel Needs.



    DALLAS, TX, March 15, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Whenever you begin to dive into the world of graphic design for t-shirts, the number of choices can seem to be overwhelming at first. Two of the major choices are either vinyl or screen printing. Although both options will provide you with a high-quality product, it is important to weigh the inherent pros and cons to each before choosing. Artscape can work with you throughout the entire t-shirt design process.

Before committing, you should first account for the amount of runs that you will have to purchase. Usually, vinyl is best for very small runs as the set-up and take-down time is much quicker, which will also help you save time and money. However, vinyl can take much longer as the runs get larger. With larger runs, screen printing is the better option as it initially takes longer to set up, but the process is much faster. Overall, it is critical to decide on the order size before choosing.

Next, you should decide how long you would like the product to last for, and if you would like the product to require special care instructions. While vinyl heat transfers will usually last for years on t-shirts without losing too much color, they do require a little more care. For example, many vinyl shirts cannot be dry cleaned, must be washed on warm without chlorine, and should be washed with a mild detergent. Compared to vinyl, screen printing is much easier to maintain as they will last for years without any special care. Although vinyl shirts may require more work, taking a little extra time to care for the garment will help them stay as crisp as screen printing.

After selecting the final design of your product, you should decide whether you will utilize vinyl or screen printing. With vinyl printing, simple graphics work the best. If you are looking for a simple graphic, like basic shapes, or even numbers for jerseys, then vinyl printing is the perfect option. However, vinyl printing can lose shading or blending of colors which can sometimes lead to a decrease in the number of fine details. Conversely, screen printing will allow you to create more detailed creations with intricate features. Screen printing is best if you are hoping to craft a t-shirt filled with colors and shapes.

Overall, before you order the next batch of t-shirts for your business or upcoming event, you should always plan ahead and decide which option works best for you. Vinyl and screen printing are both great options, and by choosing between the two, you can ensure that your t-shirts will come out looking even better than you ever imagined.
