Screen printed T-shirts vs. embroidery – Which is better?

There are many choices when it comes down to the printing method for your t-shirts. Some of the most popular options include embroidery, and screen printing.

The embroidery technique involves stitching thread to your custom-made product. It is most often used for corporate wear, jackets and hats as well as golf shirts.

Screen printing uses inks that have been applied to a substrate. This process is called screen printing because it creates a mesh stencil for each color in your design. Then, the ink is applied to the substrate and pushed through this screen stencil to achieve the desired effect.
