Screen Printing, Digital Printing, and Embroidery for Your Portland Custom Clothing

Screen printing is the process of spraying a sort of paint on apparel in using stencils to create the design. This method is often used in printing t-shirts, but it often results in a thicker layer of paint which is vulnerable to cracking over time. Screen printing often gets more expensive based on the number of colors you use, as new screens must be prepared for each color.

Digital apparel printing works on a variety of clothes, but not all. It allows more colors to be precisely applied to an item of clothing without the additional expense associated with screen printing. It also leaves you with a thinner layer of color that lasts longer.

Embroidery is often used on thicker materials or hats. This method uses thread to create a design, and as such is very durable but best suited to smaller patterns.

Our Portland custom clothing experts will help guide you through all your printing options so that you choose the best one for your goals.

Portland Custom Clothing Design Q&A

Have questions? We’ve got answers. If your question isn’t on this list, please contact us today to get the answer you’re looking for.

What is the difference between screen printing, digital apparel printing, and embroidery?

Screen printing involves spraying color onto clothes. Over time and with wear, this thicker layer of print can crack, break, and fall off. Costs for screen printing are often higher per color used. Digital printing allows for the use of more colors without additional cost, and results in a thinner layer of color. This means your design will last longer. However, digital printing cannot be used on every material. Embroidery is the most durable way to create text or graphics, but is best reserved for smaller items as it involves sewing a design into the fabric.

How much does it cost to get custom clothing made?

Costs depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • Size of order
  • Style of printing
  • Number of colors (potentially)
  • Type of apparel selected

Can I provide my own artwork?

Absolutely. Our Portland custom printing services team will give you pointers on how to get the design in the right digital format and resolution for great printing.

Can I print on the sleeves of custom clothes?

As long as the apparel you’re printing on has sleeves, absolutely.

What articles of clothing can I print on?

We have a large catalog of great clothes from a variety of manufacturers – and you can print on all of them. Please note – not all kinds of printing will work on every item of apparel.

Can I order the same design on multiple types of clothing?

Absolutely. Our Portland custom printing services team will work with you to select the best clothing styles for your design and budget.

How do I wash custom printed clothing?

Washing depends less on the printing and more on the article of clothing – you’ll just need to follow the instructions on the tag.

Can I provide my own clothes for printing?

To be sure that you get great results, we ask that you choose from our clothing suppliers, and do not bring in your own material.
