Types of Printing Explained

In the custom apparel industry there are three different types of printing that are used today: screen printing, direct to garment (DTG) printing and heat press. Here at Pacific Company we use the screen printing technique. However, we do get asked from time to time why we use that versus heat press or DTG.

We wanted to take a minute to explain what the types of printing are and why we use screen printing over the other two.

Types of Printing:

Screen Printing

Ink + Screen (stencil) = screen printing! It really is that simple, one screen is used to print each color. One color at a time the inks are pushed through the screen using a squeegee. Then the apparel is ran through a large dryer to cure the inks.

Screen printing is the best option for printing when you have large quantities of shirts and require a higher level of vibrancy for the design. When screen printing, the ink is applied thicker than digital printing resulting in brighter colors even on darker apparel.

DTG (Direct to Garment)

DTG printing is typically used for smaller orders or orders that the design requires a great amount of detail. Direct to garment printing uses specialized or modified inkjet technology allowing for a more photographic print. When using DTG to print it is best to print on lighter colored apparel so that the design will show up better.

Heat Press

Heat press is the process of applying vinyl or digitally printed graphics to apparel with heat and pressure. This is also referred to as heat transfer printing. When using vinyl, a machine is used to cut out the design and then a heat press is used to transfer the design to the desired apparel. With digitally printed graphics they are first printed on to special heat transfer material using a solvent ink. From there a heat press is used to transfer the design to the desired apparel.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no fancy title for this one, so let’s get straight to the point. We get asked questions on a daily basis about what we do and how we do it.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you do small orders?

That depends, if you are referring to doing one shirt by its self then no we can’t do that. However we do offer a smaller minimum than most screen printing and embroidery companies. Our minimum for a one color print is 12 pieces, two or more color prints the minimum is 24 pieces. For embroidery orders our minimum is 12 pieces.

Do they have to all be the same product?

Nope, you can select different products and sizes as long as they all have the same design on them.

How fast can I get it done?

Typically it depends on the time of year, but most orders we can turn around within 14 business days. If you need something sooner than that check with us and we will figure something out!

Can you do design work?

Yes! We have a great in house designer that can work with you on a custom design or replicate your artwork. Have questions about artwork? Contact Us!

What format do you need the files in?

Ideally we would like the files to be vectored in .eps, .ai, .pdf, or .cdr format at 300 dpi. If you only have a .jpg, .png, or .tiff file we can work with you on recreating them, please keep in mind that some artwork fees may apply. You can provide artwork via email, drop box or by bringing in a thumb drive with the artwork.

Hello my name is …

Hello my name is ...It can be a little nerve wracking to say hello or meet new people. However, working with someone new adds a whole new level of nerves to the situation. When you are working with a new company there will always be worries.  Will be a good match? Can they handle our needs? How do they operate? The list can go on.

Here at Pacific Company we want to take the worry out of working with someone new. Below you will find how we can help you and everything you need to know about getting started with us.

If you have looked at our website or read anything about us you have probably gathered that we are experts when it comes to screen printing. However, we also specialize in embroidery and promotional products.

What a lot of people do not realize is that you don’t need to know exactly what you want before you come to us. We know what questions to ask so that we can save you the time and effort of doing research. From there we will send you the best options that fit in your budget and will meet your deadline. We are here to make your life a little bit easier when it comes to your big projects.

Saying Hello

So, what do you need to get started with us?

  • A basic idea for your project – Whether it is t-shirts, hats, or water bottles that’s the best place to get started on researching options for you!
  • Your budget – We need to know your price range so we can find the best options for you. Even if you don’t have a specific number in mind just having a general idea helps us out.
  • Your logo/design – We need to know how many colors we will be working with to give you an accurate price. If you don’t have a logo or design yet, don’t worry! We’ve got a graphic designer in house that can work with you!
  • Quantities – We do adjust the prices based off the quantity that you order. So in order to give you an accurate quote we need an idea of how many items you are looking at. Even if it is just a rough estimate.

After we have that information we can do all the research for you and send you the best options to meet your needs. Once you have narrowed down the options to what you want to go with we will mock up your design on the products. This way you can see a proof before we start printing. As soon as we have the go ahead from you, your order is added to our calendar for production.  Our fantastic production team will take it from there and we will let you know when your order is complete!

Promotional Products

If you are ordering promotional products it is very similar to order apparel. The main difference is we don’t do the production in house. We outsource our promotional products to one of our 1000’s of capable suppliers. Most of which we are able to source on the west coast, cutting down on shipping time and costs.

There you have it, getting started with us is pretty simple. If you have any questions or projects that you are working on shoot us an email.

Say hello! We can’t wait to hear from you!
