Inkjet printers replacing traditional screen printing

Written by Florie Lyn Masarate

Printing into garments has been an age-old process that people have been doing many years before it had become widespread. The process is long and complicated and needs expertise to be able to achieverepparttar right result.

Withrepparttar 151008 development in technology camerepparttar 151009 process of sublimation, which pavedrepparttar 151010 way to transferring decorations in garments. This is simpler compared torepparttar 151011 traditional direct screen printing. Just likerepparttar 151012 traditional screen printing, sublimation transfers have been done before people printing companies came to know about its possibility. This has given people another option in decorating variety of products in full colors and in small amounts.

Withrepparttar 151013 use of inkjet printers as screen printing methods comes another addition torepparttar 151014 transfer of prints into garments. The fact that this method has been proven as much more effective and result-oriented thanrepparttar 151015 traditional and sublimation process has made people wonder if this will be able to replace those other methods inrepparttar 151016 long run.

Printing on garments using these printers is less time consuming asrepparttar 151017 only process involved here isrepparttar 151018 loading ofrepparttar 151019 materials needed. With inkjet, full colored prints are printed in a matter of minutes, fromrepparttar 151020 start until finish. This is just like putting graphics into prints, withoutrepparttar 151021 use of paper. The cost involved in this process is not as expensive as that ofrepparttar 151022 sublimation andrepparttar 151023 direct screen printing. Inkjet printers can be considered competitive garment printers with onlyrepparttar 151024 cost ofrepparttar 151025 initial printer cost to take into account.

When prints do not turn out fine,repparttar first things that people blame them into arerepparttar 151007 inks that they use. They are underrepparttar 151008 impression that inks are one ofrepparttar 151009 most common factors that affectrepparttar 151010 output of printing materials. This is most especially seen inrepparttar 151011 color printings and graphic designs. Not gettingrepparttar 151012 right kind of colors into printed materials would be charged on inks.

It is a known fact that inks sometimes encounter problems especially duringrepparttar 151013 course of printing. What people are not aware of, however, is that there are also considerations and things to know about inks before and when using them. People are just prone to make justifications to explain not knowing these factors. There are things that they want to believe and things that they do not know.

People believed that inks that are straight fromrepparttar 151014 container are ready to use. So just put them into their place inrepparttar 151015 printer and they will getrepparttar 151016 job done. What they do not know is that brand new inks needed stirring. Duringrepparttar 151017 time thatrepparttar 151018 inks are packed and shipped out, they may have stilled in a certain place inrepparttar 151019 container and may solidify. Stirring them would have preventedrepparttar 151020 trouble and expense of replacing them without having used them inrepparttar 151021 first place.

Some think that they already knowrepparttar 151022 inks they are using; therefore they should not read more about technical data and information about it. What they do not know is that some inks needed special processes and respected environments to producerepparttar 151023 right prints. it is important that people should have technical knowledge aboutrepparttar 151024 equipments that they are using to avoid and be able to do something when encountering problems inrepparttar 151025 course of printing.
