Screen Printing: Simply put, the artwork must always adapt to the final format. Printing onto fabrics is not the same as printing on paper. It is also important to keep in mind the final technique as these also have different requirements. Screen printing is a very old printing technique that uses mesh screens to print onto fabrics. Which is why it is necessary when creating artwork for it to separate colors into different layers.

Digital Printing: DTG is a relatively new printing technique that works pretty much like any other printer. It injects ink directly into the fabric instead of layering it on top. It’s really good at recreating small details so make sure the file is of the highest possible quality (at least 300 d.p.i.).
