Custom Embroidery, Custom Uniforms & Digital Shirt Printing

Techniques Used for Custom Decorated Apparel in South Florida

Creating custom-decorated apparel comes with different methods that allow flexibility when deciding how to design apparel. Screen printing, digital printing, and direct embroidery are the top 3 choices, each with its own benefits. Each of these three popular options comes with its own advantages and can be used in different situations. Understanding these techniques and their advantages is in choosing the right method for designing and creating t-shirts. The different techniques used include:

Screen Printing

Screen printing is the most popular method for t-shirt printing and creation. It captures even the smallest details of a design, logo, or picture, and can be placed anywhere on the shirt. Each color gets its own stencil for precise colors and detail. Screen printing is best for large orders of shirts with intricate designs that require metallic or glowing ink.  This is achieved by using a stencil to transfer liquid ink onto the garment, then cured in an oven.  It is durable enough to withstand multiple washes without fading. However, it’s not suitable for small t-shirt orders.

Digital Printing

Digital printing is similar to screen printing, however, it is done much more quickly and more efficiently. However, unlike screen printing, digital printing also has the ability to capture a wider range of colors because it’s all processed digitally. The method beings by entering an image or logo into the computer which controls the head to spray the water-based ink onto the shirt. If the garment is any color besides white, a base white layer is applied to ensure the design is completely visible. Digital printing is the best selection for short print runs, and designs with a wide range of colors, and samples. You should note that digital printing will most likely not last as long as screen printing when going through multiple washes.


Embroidery is the most durable and long-lasting option of all three. It uses computer-controlled machines to sew colorful threads into the garment to create logos or images. You should choose this option for more high-end garments such as polos, jackets, or hats as it gives a professional appearance. However, you have to take into account that embroidery will not work as well on thinner materials such as t-shirts. Also, you shouldn’t select this option if you’re using a detailed image or logo as shading and tiny details won’t be captured by the thread. Embroidered garments will survive multiple washes without losing any color or threading.
