Screen printing is a printing method where a desired image/design is achieved by pushing ink using a squeegee directly onto the garment with an ink blocking stencil supported by a woven mesh screen. One color is used per screen and it is printed one color at a time. Multiple screens are needed for a full color image/design. Screen printing is very versatile. It can be printed on a lot of different type of materials. It is ideal for solid color designs. However, a full color image/design can also be achieved as well. The ink in screen printing is applied thicker than digital print, therefore the print result is very bright and opaque, even on dark garments.
Screen printing is also commonly known as silk printing or silkscreen printing.
Screen Printing is great for bulk orders.
Digital printing is a method of printing where an image/design is printed directly from a digital image onto the garment. Digital printing is a newer printing technique where high amounts of detail can be achieved where the result is more like a photographic print. The greatest difference between digital printing and screen printing is that there is no screen needed in digital printing. Because it doesn’t require screens nor physical set-up we can take orders in small quantities as little as one shirt.

What is the difference between screen printing and digital printing? The biggest difference between screen printing and digital printing is that screen printing is a printing technique that uses one screen at a time to print each color, multiple screens are needed to achieve a full color design, whereas digital printing is printed using a computer and the design is printed directly onto the garment. Digital printing is also known as direct to garment printing, DTG. Both techniques are widely used. Screen printing is usually used for printing solid ink color designs and bulk quantities. Digital printing is more commonly used for smaller orders and orders that have high detailed designs.
