T-shirt printing method using flex foil. It gives the effect of a thin film with very high color coverage and clear edge of the print.
This method is characterized by high durability of printing and allows for making single copies. It does not require printing preparation for printing, which significantly reduces the cost of the printing process itself.
At low circulation it is the cheapest method of printing. The main cost is the price of the film used, so the cost depends on the surface of the print itself. The only technical requirement for this method is to prepare the project in vector graphics (i.e. in corl format - cdr. Or illustrator ai.), Because the cutting plotter reads only such graphics. This method can be used to print in basic foil colors available on the market.
This method is usually used for larger outlays due to the high cost of preparing an embroidery program (approx. +/- PLN 100 gross). However, a very elegant and unique effect is obtained. The appearance of computer embroidery does not require special commentary.
Computer embroidery is generally used to decorate thicker materials (polo shirts, sweatshirts or fleece) on these materials, embroidery looks better because it does not pull off the material and does not require the laying of many layers of phaselin, as is necessary with thin materials, e.g. for knitwear used to sew t-shirts.
The cost of making computer embroidery depends on the number of strokes of the embroidery machine needle. The number of strokes of the needle determines the density of the stitch, thread wear, machine operation time. For example, an embroidery of 3 cm requires about 1,000 strokes. The approximate cost of embroidery (+ - 10%) can be determined on the basis of the graphic design presented. The exact cost can be given after the computer embroidery has been completed. When embroidery is made, the number of colors used does not matter.
