Silk Screening, Screen Printing

Silk Screening, Screen Printing is the most popular method of printing graphics on garments using thick inks that lay on top of the material rather than soaking into the fabric.



With embroidery, the graphic is reproduced by stitching threads directly into the fabric. The actual stitching process is fully automatic and performed by computerized embroidery machines.
