Vinyl printing, also known as Jersey printing, is one of the most popular printing styles prevalent today. Commonly printed on jerseys, it is known for its excellent printing results, which boast of durability and colour intensity. In addition to this, is also provides immense smoothness and shine to the print, in stark contrast to silkscreen printing. Decal prints also happen to be slightly raised and feel soft to touch. These do not have high setting up costs and don’t constrain printing to only duplicates, as opposed to silkscreen printing. This is ideal for large-name printing, for instance – names and numbers printed on jerseys, as well as smaller quantities.
This method plots and cuts text with a cutting machine, and weeds away unwanted parts, before transferring them onto a T-shirt, through a heat press machine. Vinyl transfers make customisation of individual shirts effortless, by incorporating individual names and numbers on the print. Their price is dependent on the size, and they are limited to text only, as they don’t work well with elaborate or detail-oriented designs. It has a low setup cost, and can only print in a single colour. If you require long-lasting, single-colour prints look no further than this method!
