For us here at kingteeshops. the story of customising clothes began over forty years ago in US Satnam Singh Billionaire shirt. Printing t-shirts for punk bands during the creative explosion of the Seventies when indie music and custom merchandise formed a relationship that endures to this day. Yeah, we’ve been around a good long while. And we’re still going strong, printing and embroidering custom tee shirts and plenty more besides. But screen printed t-shirts, the origins of the custom tee, stretches way back beyond our humble beginnings in Kilburn.

The blank, undecorated apparel that you pick may have a bearing on which printing method is chosen (or even possible) Satnam Singh Billionaire shirt. Direct to Garment printing works best on 100% cotton garments and this is what we recommend. Anything less runs the risk of poor results. The ink used with DTG is water based and thinner than that used in screen printing. This has environmental advantages and also facilitates designs with greater levels of detail, but it also means that the ink may not be properly absorbed by manmade materials such as polyester.
Screen printed designs tend to be more vibrant, something that can really jump off the fabric, due to the higher opacity of some screen printing inks. And if colour matching is vital to your branded merchandise, screen printing is also the best choice. The Pantone colour system has a definite edge and is a tried and tested way of achieving the most accurately matched colours. Another aspect to consider is durability. Colours on expertly screenprinted t-shirts will last. However well done, those on DTG printed clothing will fade with washing and time – the density of ink is subject to ageing.
