If you’re looking to print a design with lots of colours, or just require a small number of products; Direct to Garment (Elite Art Lab) printing is likely to be the most economical process for you.
Direct to Garment is quite new technology that makes it possible for us to print t-shirts and other clothing products with an unlimited amount of colours and designs. With no minimum order and such flexibility, this is ideal for those with highly detailed design work (like photographs), or those requiring small order volumes.
With Elite Art Lab , the results really are dependent upon the machinery being used and the quality can vary quite drastically. We use some of the best print technology in Europe, so you’re in safe hands. Additionally, unlike some, we’re able to Elite Art Lab onto dark colours as well as light, with supreme quality and vibrancy.
You can expect a soft to touch finish with Elite Art Lab, as the inks sit within the fabric rather than on top of it, leading to increased durability, making this ideal for fashion and retail. When printing onto dark colours, as a result of the base coat the print may be slightly raised.
If you have a design with just a few colours and need over 25 prints of that same design, it may be more economical to screen print your designs.
