Screen printing is the process of transferring a stencilled design onto a flat surface using a mesh screen, ink and a squeegee. Fabric and paper are the most commonly screen-printed surfaces, but with specialised inks it’s also possible to print onto wood, metal, plastic, and even glass.
Can print 1-5 colours.
We can print t-shirts, tote bags, hoodies, clothing, glass, oversized prints, bottles, all over prints, jars, yardage, fabric, posters, postcards, invitations, art prints, art editions, walls, windows and… pretty much anything you can lay flat!
Digital printing is the process of printing digital-based images directly onto a variety of media substrates. Print on paper, photo paper, canvas, fabric, synthetics, cardstock and other substrates. A DTG printing machine is essentially a giant version of an inkjet printer, similar to what you might have at your home or office, but it’s designed to print on T-shirts and other garments.

Which is best for your business
Example: You need 100 tshirts or 100 caps
If your image has 4 colours. Size A4
4 screens. 1 For each colour x R 250 per screen.
4 colours x R 10.00 per colour.
Your total cost would then be
4 x Screens = R 1000.00
4 colours x R 10.00 per colour = R 40.00 x 100 tshirts = R 4000.00
100 Tshirts @ R 50.00ea x 100 tshirts = R 5000.00
Total cost to print 100 tshirts R 10.000.00 or R 100 per tshirt
The printing machine, prints directly onto the item, so no screens on necessary.
An example including tshirts
R 180.00 per tshirt x 100 = R 18.000
As you can see for large quantities silkscreen would be the better option.
If you wanted to print only 5 tshirts then digital printing would be your better option.
