How Are Custom Shirts Made?

by Mohit J. White Hat Link Building Services

So, you probably wonder how custom shirts are made, especially if you’ve actually had some made before, or have been gifted with a custom shirt from an event or something that you staffed or participated in. Heck, concerts are very big on giving out custom shirts, but with a popular band, where no expense spared, you wonder a little less about the sorcery behind the creation of these garments.

 

Before searching same day printing Miami, you should learn about how custom t shirts printing actually works, because you will be able to give the printers much more insightful information to better serve you and produce exactly the product you want. You will also have a budget in mind, based on the type of shirt you want, because there are a few different ways this can be made, the result of each having its own strengths and weaknesses.

In the old days, a silk screen was hand-tinted with special dyes. Then, either a simple iron or a heating press was used to cause the dye to sublimate, and stain the shirt beneath it. A little later on, some automation was created, albeit still analog, to make the silk screens easier to create. This was a similar programmable analog situation to weigh automated leaving and crocheting systems operated, something that was common well into the 1970s at which point circuit boards took overcontrolling. Embroidered shirts, which we will discuss more in a moment, had to be done by hand, involving a lot of talented man hours, making them extremely expensive as far as shirts.

Today, there are three basic ways a custom shirt can be created. The most common is a modernized version of the old silk screen that we discussed a moment ago. A high-resolution version of the graphics in question are provided to the T-shirt printers. They then feed it into a special printer which instead of normal printer, uses a similar dye to the one we discussed before. It is then put in a heating press was the shirt, facing down, and the logo sublimate sober just like it did in the old days. This process can be moved from several hours to less than an hour to produce in a modern situation. This is the cheapest way to go, and it is susceptible to fading after washes her exposure to light, but aside from the fading, logo is more or less part of the fabric at that point, and will not fall apart.

A similar process to be done to place rubber graphics on top of the shirt, though the graphic set to be converted to vectors, and instead of being printed, they are cut by an automatic lathe of sorts. A similar heat process causes it to bond to the shirt. These are “neat”, but are very prone to falling off of the shirt after enough roughhousing, hot washing or simple exposure to UV or temperature fluctuations. They are a little more expensive, as well.

Lastly, we touch on embroidered shirts like we discussed before. These will probably use a similar automatic printing from Vector graphics, will also utilize an automatic stitching machine to embroider text and fasten the graphics down. The graphics will be felt or other material, and these are probably what one would consider the Cadillacs of custom shirts. They are virtually indestructible as far as any shirt can be, not prone to fading or coming apart the washing machine. They are still profusely expensive, though, so bear that in mind. They are also less luminous due to the material used.

So there you have it, now when you search for same day printing Miami, you know exactly what to ask for when talking to the custom t shirts Miami service if you use!
