Achieving the Best Possible Quality When Printing on Polyester

Polyester is a difficult fabric to print on. If the printing isn’t done properly, the colour and print on the fabric will either fade, change or completely fall off. Without using proper techniques that ensure your ink will stay and last through use and washes, your ink will undoubtedly come off sooner than you think. There are many screen printing companies that you can go to to get customizable polyester clothing, but not all of them do it properly. At R&P Prints, we understand how important our products are to our clients, and we offer only the best quality of printing on our polyester clothing. Continue reading

The Best Quality T-Shirt for Screen Printing

The truth is, everyone knows what makes for a good quality T-Shirt. It fits perfectly, it looks good, and it wears well. High quality T-Shirts also fold nicely after washing and drying. But with so many brands and so many manufacturers, its sometimes difficult to select the best. However, there are some industry standards that are worth noting – like 100% cotton content; and pre-shrunk material; and 10 ounce weight; and double-needle stitched. It’s also important to take note of the finishes – the sleeves; the bottom hem; the seamless collar; even the so-called “centre crease”. Finally, a good T-Shirt will also come in a variety of “fits” in order to meet the needs of various body shapes. Needless to say, pre-shrunk means no shrinkage after laundering. Continue reading

Bulk T-shirts Printing

At some point, we’ve all been affected by a bulk order of t-shirts. Whether it was that time we participated in a charity event, our orientation week during college or university, or even when we played for the company softball team, we’ve all benefited from bulk t-shirts printing. What’s important to take into consideration during the process of bulk t-shirts printing is that you should have a plan going into each year. For example, let’s say that you’re working at a large company and have been tasked with the bulk t-shirts printing for the company Christmas party, the charity event, and the company softball team. If you get all of your printing done in three separate waves throughout the year, it may be more expensive than if you would have had all of the t-shirts printed at the same time. Even if the design needed to change slightly depending on the occasion, the structure of the bulk t-shirts printing process allows for savings if you go into each new printing cycle with a concrete plan.

Here are some of the most popular fabrics that t-shirts are constructed from. Continue reading
